Would it be possible for members to create their own avatars? I've seen a lot of people having identical pictures and sometimes it can create confusion...

Maki,
There is a little work involved in formatting and designating a unique avatar in the database. I wish the system was set up so you could define your own. I am not saying that I wouldn't do it if someone gave me an image and asked really nicely though.

Gunnie,
Don't change - yours is perfect.

A nuclear blast seems rather unfriendly anyways.

Maki,
That hairdo saves you a lot of work when the situation calls for camouflage...

Well not to be out-done by my other users, I had to add a little more fun to my flying ace.

Let it hereby be said that only the Site Webmaster shall have an animated avatar!

You may need to refresh your browser to see Snoopy in action. (CTRL + F5)

Oh...btw.... CONGRATS MAJOR GUNNIE!!!

Jim;
What if we send you a little photo of ourselves, so you could AVATAR it and put on our file.
Just wondering!

Well Ken,
Since I do like to ride some dirt motorcycles on trails, I thought this helmet could fit propperly, don´t you think?
Cheers!

Well its kind of fluorescent green.. perhaps it is from all that radioactive stuff I work with but then again I guess I could easily get a job as a aeroport light :-)

Hey guys so many new avatars... Talking eggs, scary vikings... I'm keeping my hairdo, just for now...

Tagging to Paulo's (armouredsprue) post. (since I don't know how to do the Bolded Quote thing). Asking if we could send in little pictures of ourselves.
My question is, could I just use a picture of George Clooney or Brad Pitt? All of the pictures I have of myself are black & white, white scalloped bordered Polaroids, leaning now to a sepia-toned look.......

lol.

Paulo, that picture is from a game that my son got in McDonald's happy meals called "Bonz" or "Bones". I'll have to see if I can find the little figurine that the figure is of. Them we can get one of the better painters to do it up right.

Man, is my head really filled with this much useless knowledge?
