Well, I posted a short (One word? Two? I don't remember) post, and was informed of this rule. Perhaps hastily I replied that I don't intend to change.

AFAIK there hasn't been any real discussion of this, and if it's a rule for a good reason that I don't know, then I'm the one in the wrong, and we should go on moderating that way. However, I personally don't know of any reason why we should have a problem with a person doing it once, or once a week, or anything like that. I fully agree that it is really annoying to have a whole bunch of "me too" posts or other single-word, non-substantive posts in a thread, but I'd imagine that we could let the first one go, maybe warn on the second or third. But again, perhaps there was some kind of serious problem that I missed.

since this topic is about avatars (or so the title says) i had a question....


does anyone else invert EVERY picture they get in Paint? I find a pic, go "oh cool" take it to paint, select all, invert colors......almost without thought...


i was wondering if this was wide-spread....

:D

There's a feature on Mac OSX where you can invert the colors of everything on the screen. I'm using it right now. :)

I wish I could take credit for my animated one. A friend made it custon for me. Some quality was lost in making it small enough for the forum, but I still love it.

Yeah, and when I invert the colors on my computer, I can see it normal... :)

I still think my Avatar is clearly at the top of the avatar pile as it shows a REAL appearance of the Flying Spaghetti Monster rather than a representation. (just wish I had had a better camera to catch it with!)
Best regards

Bob the Unbeliever had an animated and larger version of that one, so maybe not so much...

I'll probably change mine to a portrait picture if I get a good one.
