    My sincerest apologies to Exophase, then... :p

    It sizes down fine, but I figured I'd post the full version, for laughs.


    Hope you're happy, Exo, because I used one of my best fabric pens on this masterpiece. :p

    Now everybody really does need avatars, or else they're stuck with Generic Inverted Silhouette Guy. :lol:

    Not that I can find - you just have one image for both, now, it seems.

    I don't really see a use for one. I'd rather people recognize me by name or the quality of my posts (or lack thereof at times, lol), not a little picture next to my name.

    Well, if someone forgets your name they can always refer back or describe your avatar pic, because without one it's impossible to remember you.

    Ah ok~ An all-in-one seems more efficient.

    I suppose so, but it's also just another distraction in the user interface. I'm looking around the new version that was installed and I can't figure out where to disable avatar display. Some of us like simple, pared down interfaces that load and run smoothly. Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of appeal for that on the Internet. Devices are getting more capable and people want to pile on the features. Whenever I get around to making forum software, it'll be very simple and clean. </rant>


    EDIT: 100th post.


    EDIT2: Also, come on. Sporks. That's memorable. >_>

    I think the default image is fine, mine has grown horns and a pointy beard already. All it needs now is too much hair and it'll basically look like me anyway.


    Getting Peter Molyneux to port his good/evil face-morphing technology to IPB was a great idea.

    Had to update to a more name appropriate avatar myself. Another I had was a brain with eyes and teeth. Somehow made some people sick. :blink: :blink:
