With over 900 members, there are a lot of avatars here. Other than your own, which avatar do you like best and why?

My favorite is YellowfinKunkfish. I smile whenever it see it. It captures that "decisive moment" as photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson used to say. We we can clearly see the eyes of the diver and fish and they are having a "moment". Perfectly framed and lighted, the photographer captured that special moment. It also helps that the fish looks pissed that she has invaded his(her?) space.

Your ST dressing room photo makes me wish I had a picture of when my husband went to try on his very first wetsuit...

He walked out of the dressing room with the zipper of his wetsuit in the front, which would have been OK if it was a front zip wetsuit :) He said that he didn't know - but, the kneepads on the back of his knees should have been a bit of a clue...And, it just didn't seem to fit very well when it was on backwards :)

If only I'd had a camera that day - it was priceless...

MOF/NMOF never fails to excite and incite.

Yea... when tommy was helping me get this set up, he dumped thousands of smilies and avatars to the server. We'll he runs 75 game servers - and those folks are a little out there.... You should see the ones I deleted!

anyway you can increase the avatar file size limit? My 'dancin bear' is stuck in slow-motion on my avatar with the small file size!

He did, but I think he changed it to just a picture of a platypus. Too bad. His old one was my favorite.

We limit the size of the avatars and the type of avatars due to not everyone that visits is on a high-speed connection.
It's more important to load the content of the forums then an animated avatar :)

If you can get it to fit in the size requirements, then it's not an issue with the animation.

I can see rick being the kid with the knifeThanks for that vote of confidence, little lady.

Whereas YelloffinKunkfish's avatar makes me laugh, yours makes me think. I am reminded of a Rembrandt painting. Kinda wonder what's going on behind the eyes. On the other hand, your first photo in your signature is goofy:smilie39:

It's not goofy. It's "holy H*ll, it's hot in this dressing room wearing a 5 mil with a hood & my face is being squeeeezed so I must immortalize this"

thank.you.very.much!

Thank You!! (someday I'll share the entire picture, so everyone can have a good laugh!)

My favorite is jwdizney's, it's cute, and he said he drew it himself, so I'm impressed!
