    Collage of all MacRumors avatars

    xUKHCx's winning avatar is a collage of all MacRumors avatars.

    In the All your avatars are belong to us thread you will find other versions of this image, including one with colors matched to the MacRumors logo, one sized to be a desktop background, and a very large version with full-size avatars.

    Oooooooh, oooooh, I want a red ribbon! (do we runners up get ribbons though? I'm guessing not) I do love red (in spite of my name) :eek: :p

    edit: crikey, ok, I sounded a bit hyper there. yeah, I'm curious though and got a bit excited over the red thing. </dork>

    The badge graphics in post #2 above appear only in our gallery, not next to posts in the forums as the post #1 badges do. Luckily, you already have a nice badge. :)

    P.S. I'm always glad to answer questions about red things to the best of my ability. :cool:

    I received a few messages regarding members using the avatars I created above. To make it easy, all members are free to use the ones I created as they wish :cool: Enjoy! If you want variations PM me, I'll see what I can do.

    Doctor Q, is there any thought of keeping a public avatar gallery on the boards? One free for members to use?

    I tried to upload an animated avatar and the forum wouldn't allow it. Help? Although definitely no big deal, just curious.

    Aha, just read that you have to have 500 posts to have an avatar. Strange rule, never run across something like that before. Well, if I'm in your playground, I guess you get to make the rules. Hardly the big story of the day.

    That's nothing strange; it's the reward for contributing to the community.
