Mark Oates

looks like X-G's old avatar.

I'm sure it's not, now that I've made a thread about it :P

Well X-G had Lenin as an avatar, but he is pretty famous you know. :)

X-G's last avatar was also Lenin

Mark Oates

In school we studied Lenin and how much of a horrible Nazi he was... oh wait, that was High School History! Gotta love America! :P

X-G

1. I can't recall ever having a Lenin avatar.

2. Receive bacon

Mark Oates

what was your last one then?

X-G

How should I know? :P

Mark Oates

bacon? ???

Richard Phipps

I don't even know what his current one is supposed to mean (drying hands?). And why he chose it..

The source image. The show "Faktum" on Sweden's (usually extremely Party-friendly) public service television has also noticed Chairman Persson's similarity to Mao Tse-Tung. ;D

Indeed it is, comrade. Indeed it is!

Trumgottist

I'm also on my first picture here (in both meanings of that phrase), even though I have had some others for periods in between (including a bearded version of this one for a short while, back when that sort of thing was fashionable). There's no public archive, but I do have all saved locally. All of those were original drawings except a photo of Elwood Blues (yay Elwood!) and a painting of Wagner (there must have been a reason, but probably not a good one).

Tero Laxström

Well a couple years in the between that I didn't even remember this place existed. And a lot of times that just didn't bother to login. :)

@ Dennis Busch: did you change your avatar to the crying robot because of Lucid Nightmare's poem? ;D

[edit]
Omg, I checked pixel-to-pixel now, and I realized Inphernic's avatar is Richard Phipps' avatar mirrored, colored and with the hands the former avatar had in front of it! :o

No, because i was very... and i mean VERY depressed at that point in time. A short while later i became insane, which was reflected by the avatar previous to my current one. And my current one i have, because i was following along Richard Phipps who said in some other thread that he is on a mission to make everyone use a real picture of themselves for an avatar.8-) (But that does not imply that i am back to sanity.;))

American schools must be even worse than is commonly rumoured... then again, as a Nazi, he was somewhat of a failure.

It seems he didn't like the jokes. :-X He didn't post a comment here and changed his avatar wordless.

relpatseht

His avatar may be wordless, but it isn't letterless, It may only be coincidence, but I am quite sure it contains the letters X and G.

My avatar has subliminal messages...

Pedro Avelar Gontijo

I didn't mean his avatar was wordless, I meant he was wordless to change it. :-X

All good things must come to an end. Having an avatar based on Richard's avatar is a good thing. Therefore, me having an avatar based on Richard's has come to an end.

This thread seems to have backtracked a bit, so without further ado, I present you an archive of avatars I've used on Allegro.cc (I think this is all, I can't remember if I had another one before the cow on a tractor).

So do I like my current one.

Pedro Avelar Gontijo

What in fact is it?

OICW

This gotta be third time I'll be saying that I like my current avatar. Did I expressed so confusingly?

FMC

I think Pedro wants to know where you got it from ;)

(i don't remember if OICW posted in this thread on avatars, but check it out)

Onewing

Why would anyone want to change their avatar?

OICW

FMC: Oh yeah, looks that somebody (me actually) is slow on uptake. And I didn't posted in that thread because I was in the country without internet connection.
So I'll explain: it's Russian main character from game called Original War. His name is Jurij Ivanovich Gorkij but he's called "Burlak". I actually like him more than the main character from american campaign (John MacMillan), there are many reasons but one should be obvious ;)

It does, but I don't know if I have an identity anymore.

relpatseht

I definatly identify people by their avatars. I really can't help it, my eyes are just draw to the colors. On this board, where alot of people change their avatars frequently, I get confused...

I suppose I should just turn them off so I'm forced to learn names, but then I would be confused in topics such as this...

23yrold3yrold

I like Steven Silvey's. ;D No one will ever top Zaphos' though ...

That's the reason I haven't changed mine. If I were to make any changes it would be variations on the happy chewing goat, as to not confuse people.

for easter I added an easter basket and eggs.

Pedro Avelar Gontijo

That's nice. I would do that if I had my perfect avatar. It's just that I haven't found it yet :P

OICW said:

Is the top part of the head attatched to the rest of the body, or does it levitate when the mouth needs to be opened?

Is chewing accomplished by lifting the top of the head a bit and tilting it until the two rows of teeth meet at one point, and then rotating the direction of tilt so that the meeting-point of the two rows of teeth moves around in a circle? Or is chewing skipped entirely and the top of the head removed and the food just slam-dunked into the funnel?

And what about talking?

AE.

OICW

There's central axis inside and the top part is moving along this vertical axis. And it doesn't need to chew, the food just falls into the funnel and to stomach (I suppose that it has stomach).

Pedro Avelar Gontijo

You call that human? :P
