    What makes MacRumors (apart from the obvious)? The forums and what makes the forums? The posters.

    What I have done here is recreate the MacRumors icon with a collage of all the avatars that people use and I choose this to show the interplay/relationship between people on the forum.

    So pull out your magnify glasses and try and spot yourself.

    edit: Put a new one up for the contest which is the first attachment but kept the original (second) for continuity sake.

    Every single avatar as on 10am 24th Feb UK time.

    The larger version is way too big to put up on here. I need to wait for an update on the program I used before making the large version.

    Can you PM it to me, by chance? I'm totally thinking ''wallpaper'' right now.

    The version I used to create that avatar is ~140MB. I will post the larger version when I get the update and do some tweaking, I was told by the developer that the issue has been fixed and to expect an update some time within a week or so from now.

    It did make my MB suffer quite a bit, took about 40 minutes with approx. 190% CPU and ~1.6GB of RAM.

    Please post the big version in rapidshare or something like that, this just screams wallpaper. Great work.

    Just some curiosity, exactly how many avatars are there?

    Remember it is a square so (1245^0.5)*75(ish)≈2600

    However due to some technical problems the original idea had to be altered and the file is ~6000 pixels.

    Great reasoning behind it, well executed. Itching to see a slightly larger version here too.

    This is great!

    But surely not everyones avatar can be on there since for instance mine is blue and there is minimal blue in the logo.

    There is also not a large enough ratio of red avatars to black/other coloured avatars!

    How exactly did you get it all to work?

    Great idea though!

    Your avatar sure looks black to me.

    And yes.Excellent job.

    Must have been hard since people do change their avatar.Was this a snapshot type design?
