    This is just for fun (and pride).

    Which MR member has the best avatar(s)?

    We have members that have had the same avatar for years, becoming a classic and common sight on MR and then we have users that constantly change their avatars at every chance they get, showing off their creativity in the process.

    Post your nominations here! I'll make a poll once we get a decent number of nominations.

    You can nominate yourself and nominate as many worthy nominees as you see fit (just don't go overboard!)

    Nomination period will be open for ~24 hours (due to the high volume of nominations)

    The most memorable ones to me are those of leekohler, dmr727, and rdowns. There are many others, but those have become iconic.

    I should add that MR First Couple (e and blue) have (or, had) themed avatars that would change in unison and somehow be related and witty. I liked that. It was sweet, and subtle.

    Also, I'd throw in NC MacGuy. I like avatars that change but stick to a consistent theme.

    I think everybody can recognise rdowns by his avatar! - even when he changed it :p

    Abstract's avatar also jumps to the front of my mind. The orange flight suit stands out so much it catches my eye every time.

    Abstract, MacDawg's, benflick, Peace, Cassie

    I'll most likely edit this as I look around and remember.

    I vote for LeeKohler.

    Many other cool ones as well. But I like Lee's.

    yellow — I hadn't seen it in awhile, then I saw it yesterday and remembered how mesmerizing it is.


    EDIT: themoonisdown09 is another great one I hadn't seen in awhile. And now I see Peace below which I like too.

    I'll go with rdowns and Doctor Q.

    [edit] oops. I forgot one---r.j.s!!
    [/edit]

    I think there used to be an avatar competition. iBlue ran it I think. Could be wrong though.

    I don't remember 99% of the avatars and names. Guess I'm out.

    I'm going to be a complete narcissist and nominate myself. Nothing like a friendly reminder to eat delicious and soggy fried chicken, dried out frozen corn, half-frozen mashed potatoes and a gooey yet burnt chocolate(?) brownie.

    I also nominate MacDawg. Go Dawgs!

    rdowns by far. Legendary.

    Runners up:
    Abstract I love it!
    leekohler (whenever I see a lucha libre mask, now, I subconsciously think of MacRumors)
    iBlue (changes frequently but almost always has a cool and clever avatar)
    Blue Velvet Very appealing...it just works in many ways
    Dr Q (gotta love the creative use of Q's in his various avatars)

    Wasn't there a MacRumors "best avatar" contest a few years ago?
