Avatars— please

#1 Post by eleazar » Fri Apr 13, 2007 6:21 am

Everyone please use an avatar.
Visual people (like me) have a hard time keeping all these cryptic and sometimes unpronounceable names straight. We want pictures.

I'll even make you one, within reason — if you have a decent number of posts that aren't absolutely drivel.

IIRC you can only use avatars hosted off-site (phpBB has the option to let you upload an avatar but i dont think the FO forums have this enabled) - this is more likely to be the main impediment to people using avatars, rather than coming up with an image. So if you offer to host people's avatars for them as well you might get more people taking you up on your offer..

Also, there dont seem to be any avatars in the gallery to choose from.

Cool.

It's mostly FO art, sliced and diced to appropriate sizes. Now to get people to use it...

I'll still take requests that interest me, BTW.

I thought I had one just put in place, working on it.

As for marhawkman, I think maybe it's supposed to be a Massively Augmented Reinfored Hawkman, and not a dragon? :D :wink:

A little off topic maybe, but can I kill your fly PD? It irritates me to have a fly on my screen. :wink:
