    Better Avatars!

    After looking at all of the avatars that are offered by default to Junior Members, I find the selection of avatars stocked, but at the same time quite horrendous. My reason for this lies in the insane number of...POKéMON avatars! How many of our users use Pokémon avatars (not saying anything against those people who do), and why are there so many of them?! In my personal opinion, we should categorize the avatars in to seperate sections, so if say (--insert user-name here--) wanted an avatar of say, a Pokémon, he or she could go to the Pokémon section and choose one of the MANY avatars that would be located there (plenty to choose from...note how I keep noting the fact of the special little "é" instead of a plain "e" when mentioning Pokémon!), or any other section of avatars that would be listed on the avatar page...

    It a suggestion nothing more...with a shiny poll added!
    Welcome to Hell , where we have served more than all of the fast food chains put together! And the number grows everyday! Stay tuned!

    I agree. When I first came here I was scared by the horrendous amounts of Pokemon. Isn't that a little kid thing? Do little kids hack or care about security? I thought it was just adolecents and up...

    Categories would make it easier.
    Why am I still here?

I can use ascii characters as well.. Ascii character 233.. hehe..) So what do we do..? We must buy POKéMON.. Buy.. Buy.. POKéMON.. Nope.. that subliminal stuff never worked on me... YES!! I just caught the contradictasaur!!

    After 45 posts, it really doesn't matter much anymore. Get to that point, and you can have a cool one like mine.

    I see you changed your avatar to a penguin. You leap at that every chance you get, don't you? Penguin mints, Tux logos on your chemistry reports, penguin stuffed animals......I could go on forever. Get to 45 posts and you can get a cool Tux avatar instead of a generic penguin. LONG LIVE THE ALMIGHTY TUX!!!

    By the way, I agree with you. That's an awful lot of avatars to just have thrown on there any which-way. Some categorization would help a lot.

    I like this idea. I had thought it this way: We should be able to get a list of files in the avatars-directory, every avatar name functioning as a link to the picture. That way we could easily search for the avatar with Ctrl+F, eg. "dilbert.gif", "bat*.gif", "poke", "whatever*.*".

    JP has a lot of good avatars up, but I came across a problem when trying to insert my own custom avatar. It was never small enough. It would be nice if you could allow the avatars to be 50X60. This would allow for more headroom.

    Man was I so happy when I get to change from my crappy avatar and got to choose my own. This is my third since I began uploading my own.
