Very nice collection!

With all gathered like this I see quite a few I missed at the finals, but that is in part due to the "just 1 finalist per person" rule ().

Again congratulations to all the winners!

Patience... and reading the FAQ might help...

Edit: Man, I'm totally out of form... I get beaten every time...

Wow, thats a lot of 'tars, and a lot of people with great designing skills.

Once again, Congrats to Lacero, dietcokevanilla, and FistfulofAngst

I wonder how many 'tars will see at the 3,000,000 mark
And possibly a 'Mac Rumors' Category?

I am rather late taking notice to this thread, but I must say that there are some very nice 'tars here.

Unless we have another avatar contest and you win the contest, you won't be eligible for an avatar until you have 500 or more posts. At your post rate, that will take you almost exactly one year. But you can put a photo in your User Profile any time you like.

Edit: I see that you do have one. Is that you in the photo?
