    First of all I wanna say thank you for the warm welcome... It's good to be "on the team"... :)

    Now, here's my first avatar. I don't know if it's what you had in mind (I somehow doubt it is, lol) but it reflects what xp-erience is to a lot of people, IMHO... customization. So without any further ado, here is the avatar, resized three times so waddy can pick the best and still be able to sleep at night. hehe

    and finally, the smallest one. I think this one actually meets the standard requirements for avatars... Anyway, it's just a start - and I'm embarrased to add, the first work I've EVER done with gif's... :( I am not the graphics expert some people think I am... I can port Mac OS X icons with the best of em, but to hell with actually creating anything... lol

    But, I think I can do it. Just give me some ideas, something to work with...

    Anyway, what do you guys think?

    ok here's another idea...

    a glint/gleam of light goes around the top/left half of this ring (yes, it's the counterstrike icon I use on my desktop, lol) while the word "mod" scrolls through the middle, or something...

    whatcha think?

    Yeah sounds good.

    It was my impression that this would be an additional icon that mods have, you could also have your "elvis" ;)

    Not too bad mavis. I'd have to say I like it, but I would prefer a different scene or image to scroll into than an outline of a woman. I'm not trying to push my beliefs on anyone, but I don't think that's what "this site is about." Maybe make the avatar have something to do with moderating. You know, supreme power, flame wars, Gods (and Goddesses) :) or just all around supreme power over the Earth. Yeah, that'd do...


    [e] I just saw you had "bling bling baby" as your title and was about to throw up all over my desk when I saw that darling shot of you & yer lady. If you two weren't so damned cute, I'd have lost my lunch. :p

    hmm... maybe a gavel, or a hammer... or a sickle! heh

    thanks for the idea l.a - I just used the "outline of a woman" because it was handy (ie, "Print Screen") :) - anyway I'll work on it tonight maybe...

    lol

    Animated gifs are fun to make and/or easy with Animation Shop.
