    well I wasnt sure if I was going to put up an avatar, but I figure why the hell (and I realize that while I dont usually post nonsense threads, this is one of those....)
    so maybe you guys can help me decide which one to use? ive narrowed it down to these

    Well all of them right now are a bit too fast. Except for the last one which I missed, but it needs to be resized.

    Gimme a few minutes to think, kinda busy at the moment.

    Have better ideas later.[​IMG]

    You didn't give them names for discussion purposes. Of the three (TO=this one, MTO=maybe this one, and ALTO=and lastly this one), I like MTO. It made me smile, and that's a good enough reason to vote for it. But your vote is the only one that counts, so why ask us?

    You know, Doctor, there is a more conventional system, called the numerical system. :)

    Don't go nuts on trying to put a few images together and think it will come out cool. "99%" of the time, it doesn't.

    If you want to make something that you think looks cool, take something you feel strongly about (a house, a car, something with Apple, a logo, a music band, a message, etc.) and make that your avatar. Most likely, you may want to work out some effort in Photoshop to tweak an image to almost exactly how you want it. Or make it stand out a little more with an animation.

    A couple of examples on the forums would be MacBandit's old avatar (as for the new one, post a damn link already, man!! :D :D), my series of Dusturbed avatars, or Backtothemac's avatar.

    Think of something simple, then struggle to perfect it. :cool:

    The blue guy from the 1984 flash movie is by far the easiest to look at - it has the most subtle movement - much better than something spinning or moving the whole time.

    K, since people seem to like the Big Brother one, here's a slightly slower version (it seemed a bit too fast):

    I think you should have one fame stop for a few seconds, give it a pause.

    Hey, I've recently reached 500 posts and I was wondering if somebody could help me make an avatar. I was think something along the lines of a waving dollar bill, but I'm not sure how hard that would be.

    Yeah, I just saw your other thread, but figured I'd post it here. Saw this, thought of your request. I'll look for something better for ya. ;)
