I'm somewhat avatar challenged. And yet I'd really like a Christmasy avatar. Can someone make me one?

Pretty please?

I can't make you one. What I do is go to google images and type in "christmas" and another word. I get tons of images to choose from.

Here are a few that I'm not going to use. You can have one of them, if you like: You'll have to shrink them down to avi size.

Alright, I just spent the last hour working in PaintBrush doing something I've never done before: I spliced together two totally different images. I didn't know it could be so much work. I'm sure all you fine people know of a faster way to do it than I did (one pixel at a time!). But this was the best solution I could come up with.

I now have a new avatar! :D

Merry Christmas! :cool:

(Somebody tell Mac we need a "holiday emoticon." Like maybe a pair of yellow smiley guys with antlers on their heads standing in a gentle snowfall, and they have red blinking noses.))

You can do what I did, which is a fairly simple plan.

First, you insult RT, then you taunt Dawno and, presto!, new avatar.

Happens all the time. You get used to it after a while. So you'll certainly get the 'something with humor to it', but you won't think it's nearly as funny as everyone else thinks. Now as far as I'm concerned, sparkly mistletoe on my stinger is golden for humor segues.

I couldn't have selected a better sparky for myself, no way. Obviously, you are avatar challenged, so I really see no other recourse for ya.

Insult RT.

I don't have the nerve to insult either RT or Dawno. (And Robeiae told me about the yucky toenail avatar that he was recently inflicted with against his will. So I don't dare risk that.)

What I'd REALLY like is an animated gif avatar with little sparklies on it (like yours).

Can anyone give my current av sparklies?

Can you animate it so it's all shimmery and twinkly and sparkly?

Or maybe have flying saucers passing by in the bakground shooting mind-control rays at Scully?

So THAT's how I got the waffle way back when. I thought it was just some cosmic ray (like the ones causing global warming) that struck the AW server, creating a new image for my avatar.

This is the avatar I'd like. But I cam't load it because I am restricted from loaded animated gif's. So only a super-mod can override it.

Meanwhile, I went back and re-read his reply. I think he mistakenly thought I wanted him to MAKE the gif, not load it. He replied he didn;t have the right software.

It's not just Cranky, though. I've noticed a number of the distaff side have taken to objectifying themselves, thereby reducing the likelyhood that we'll view them as intellectual equals. Of course, that's primarily because we're reduced to blathering idiots when the blood flow to our brains is curtailed.

Or it could just be that they want to look hawt for the holidays.
