Default Avatar Contest Themes

EDIT by Ogion (Adaire asked me to replace the OP with this: )

Official Avatar theme day is Dec 12 & 13. If you'd like to compete for the title of 'Best Avatar' post an image file of you avatar during theme day. The timing will be flexible to compensate for timezones. I will open the voting thread on the 14th.


A few rules for the contest:

If I deem an image indecent or irrelevant to the theme I will not post it in the voting thread, and I will ask a moderator to remove it from this thread. Abiding forum rules should keep you in the clear.

All entries must be new avatars. For example with the Norse mythology theme I could not use my current avatar, Sleipnir. If you significantly edit the image for theme day, I will allow it.

If you are not using an original or edited image make sure there are not any duplicates that come before you.

If you want to compete you must both 'wear' your avatar and post the image in this thread during theme day. You may post a blown up version of your avatar on this thread, but I will resize it to 300x300 for voting.

May the best avatar win!

I'm not gonna vote (because i don't even know yet if i'm gonna participate). (Though by posting i'll show it's at least an interesting idea for the forum).

People will be spamming the forum with themed avatars, as a member you have the right to say in what that theme is. Plus your a moderator Ogi, you can get away with almost anything.

Either way thanks for the interest. <3

December 12th is Walk Against Warming day, on a side note...but I'm guessing we shouldn't go into political stuff for a theme. This is a great idea though, thanks for putting it together!

The thread Avatar Changes sparked this off, reading it explains the idea.

Nazi dinosaurs was what I voted for. I didn't realise I could vote for more than one.

Ah well, I like nazi dinos!

Now to see if I can actually find one...

Edit: Okay, we're good.

It reminds me of the thread in the SomethingAwful forums where members photoshopped explosions, dinosaurs, and sharks into random pictures, making them considerably more AWESOME as a result.

THIS FORUM NEEDS MORE AWESOME VOTE NAZI DINOSAURS TODAY

Thanks! I make my own avatars, I change them every few months so I am not attached to the current one and could come up with something to match any chosen theme...


BTW- What am I supposed (to Post) on this thread- as far as images?

I'm not completely certain, but I think to post the image one would select as avatar for the theme of one's choice.

Then there's a bit about voting, which is a cumbrous machinery for reaching any flawed resolution. I'd prefer the more elegant solution of the Co-ordinator simply announcing each Theme Day as an edict.

Can I vote for everything? I very nearly did, anyway, even though I don't know when I'll be able to participate. (I need a scanner and a decent computer. Maybe I should give up on waiting for mine to come to me and just sell off my legs for a laptop. ...Or my spleen. I don't need that, do I? Hmmm.) Oh well.

On a side note: The Caturday thread. Enjoy. I mean, relying on the search function... *pokes* Nuh-uh.

Okay so I like my current avatar titled " Intuition" as opposed to my Thinking, Introverted or Perceiver avatars. (that could have been a category in itself I or N or T or P avatars)

It was a photo, which became original art via photoshop which is now (hopefully) rather surreal... (so I voted for all 3 categories?)

No that would take too long, so I'd just remove my vote.
Which would put 'Reality is an Illusion' at the top.

So when is the theme going to be announced? I am not sure of which theme I need to be addressing when searching through my albums for avatar candidates?

EDIT; Perhaps Starting a new thread would be the best way to announce the chosen theme and begin the submissions(?)

I'm going to announce the theme when the poll closes in about 6 1/2 hours Da Blob. People can start posting after that if they like. Since there are so many people in different time zones I'm not really going to stress the time.

Theme day is already going to need two threads and I don't want to spam the forum unnecessarily.
