One of my favorite parts about ForumWarz is the avatar selection; rather than letting people just pick whatever male reproductive organ pictures they want, there’s a stock set of avatars that, more or less, fit your clbum.

My beef, though, is that some of them are TOO like your clbum.

Take this one, for instance: (Using the first account I found with this avatar) Log in to see images!

(I like how the URL for this is at goldaccounts.forumwarz.com. RUMOR MILL ENGAGE)

This picture is so goddamn emo it’s INFURIATING. I want to PUNCH THIS KID IN THE STOMACH. GRAAAAAAAAWR. That, in my opinion, is the sign that it’s the best fit for the emo kid clbum. I get peeved thinking about that little douche. Log in to see images!

On the other hand, my least favorite one is the Ron Paul avatar. I’m not even going to post the picture in this thread, because within 5 posts someone using it will come in here with it. I don’t care if you chose it because you hate Ron Paul or because you are one of those deluded morons who insists that Ron Paul wouldn’t immediately ruin the country by being President (end politirant here), but did EVERYONE who chose troll have to choose that one? It’s soooooooooooooooooooooooooo freakin’ Log in to see images!

Anyway, now that I’ve made an bum of myself, let’s have you guys contribute? Which stock avatars do you guys enjoy, and which ones need to die in the flames of hell?

Explanation time: I use extremely long periods of time for caching, like a year into the future. This is to speed up the site because for 95%+ of the images or javascript or stylesheets you won’t even make a request to the server. The downside is, when I update something nobody will know, so I basically change the name of the subdomain that static content is served from when there is an update.

Sometimes I use the dates like feb6.forumwarz.com or whatever, but once in a while I put in jokes. People were joking about gold accounts this week so I chose that name Log in to see images!, now back to the topic:

You might be interested to know that we launched without Ron Paul. During the Beta for Forumwarz we didn’t allow anyone to upload avatars, and people were begging for it. One guy asked over and over if we could add a Ron Paul troll avatar, and I said as long as he found a public domain one I would. Of course ten seconds later he went to Wikipedia and found one, so I made good on my promise and inserted it into the game for everyone to use.

It quickly became the most popular.

The second most popular avatar is Red/Green/Red/Green, which also has a story behind it. Most of our avatars are from a stock photo site where we bought the rights to use them for web, but that one was custom made.

I’m Red/Green colorblind, and during one of the early Crotch Zombie meetings when we were planning Forumwarz, The Other Other Hole filed a bug asking for an avatar that would just flash red and green constantly. I don’t think he seriously expected me to do it, though…

I wasn’t actually hoping the rumor mill would start, but that’s a neat idea of getting around really huge bandwidth requirements. You should start stealing the alt tags from xkcd comics, using them completely out of context for lulz.

Level 10 Emo Kid

“Gloomy Gus”

On the subject of favorites, I really like my blood avatar for the emo kid. It seems to be a popular one. I guess it’s just because I don’t think most “real” emo kids are as self-awarely emo as a lot of the emo kid avatars suggest. The blood avatar is definitely an emo kid av, but it also seems like something someone would make their av without thinking about what it says.

TOO LATE Log in to see images!

I honestly couldn’t see this game without the Ron Paul avatar. My least favorite would probably have to be the ear with the safety pins through it. Personal peeve, I guess.

Actually I didn’t really like most of the troll avatars Log in to see images! Ron Paul seemed the most normal.

You know when you can redeem having a free custom avatar? every time I try it it says that it has an irrelevant resolution… anyone know how to fix this? It’s just a photo I saved off of my facebook.

Hello Mr. Inappropriate Necroposter,

Did you see this line when you tried to upload yours?

Make sure your avatar is 93x93 pixels and no greater than 100K in size. Accepted formats are: .jpg, .gif, and .png
