Noticed a whole spate of avatars that have changed just recently just wondering why, also noticed that a lot of them have gone from more abstract images to pictures of people, Just wondering why? is your avatar a picture of you? if not who is it and why, stuff like that.

Mine is indeed a picture of me. They changed because Ange (trunksgirl) and I decided that the emoticon avatars that were a trend last year needed to come back. Mine is the shifty eyes emoticon, hers is the o_O emoticon, Froggy is a pirate emoticon...aaaand so on.

Mine is also a picture of me, although I don't look like that most of the time. I changed mine beacuse I am an IRC sheep and as such will follow any trend that anyone starts.

Some people do have pictures of themselves that aren't emotavatars though, they just like people to see who their talking to.

Me, I just like people to know they're talking to a guy doing that <---------.

Mine also is a pic of me, a very old pic of me, but still a pic none the less. Mine is not an emotivar though unless there is some lip puckering shrek emoticon that I don't know of. I just got bored of my old someone who wasn't me av and started using old stupid pictures of me instead.

Emotivars totally rock, because we copy a copy of our emotions to show an emotion. Though in all honesty I do more bouncy stuff, than fearsome pirate.

I came up with the idea last year in IRC, (not all my ideas catch on sad.gif )and lots of people liked, so lots of us did it. I'm glad Ange decided to bring 'em back again wink.gif Yay! And I stil urge all the emotivars to go and post in the avatar thread, so that they are all together. Go!

And I thought I kept mine for ages! I've had 4 including this one, which means about 1 per 4 and a bit months, but the first one was only there for about a week, ditto for this one so far.

I think I've had my avvie the longest of anyone on the forums. I haven't changed the thing since about a month after joining, and I'm nearing the three year mark.

*snickers at the shirt ninja* I hadn't seen that picture before.

Mine is likewise an emoticon pic of me, highly prized by me at the time because I got to do "the face" happy.gif

I don't look much like that at all anymore, though.

I do love your avatar.

Oh yeah, cool... I hadn't realised just HOW many avatars around were emoticons! Silly me.
Eh, I change my av when I get bored, or I see something spiffy I like that needs av-ing. Like the one I have at the moment. They found a lobster. With furry claws. FURRY! It amused me so.

Take a picture of yourself with some sort of digital camera.

Use some sort of software (paint'll do, in most cases) to change the dimensions of the picture and REDUCE THE FILE SIZE.

Stick it on photobucket or something.

Voila.

As long as you have some form of bitmap, it doesn't matter how the image was taken. You could scan one, use a webcam, whatever.

Take a picture, save it as a .jpg or a .gif (maybe even .png, I can't remember what kind of pics Mata's avvie stuff supports anymore). Shrink it down so it's not ginormous. Make the picture about 1.5" x 1.5" across. Then you need to host it somewhere that will allow linking directly to it. Main thing is to NOT try to use a .bmp picture as an avvie. Bitmaps are HUGE.
