Okie Dokey then;  My current avatar is an animated gif of a Thraddash with a giant lava-lamp behind him.  It was going to be a giant spinning neon flower, but I couldn't find a suitable picture.  Future incarnations of the avatar might include penguins on monitors and groucho marx style gag-glasses on the Thraddash.

Why the lava lamp?  When I signed up on the TW forums several years ago, either Orz or the Fot gave me the title "Thraddash Flower Child".

Don't listen to him, he is just to ashamed that he can't switch this embarrasing icon he has right now. What is so embarrasing? Look on the Thraddash ffs!
He is taking a S***.

And now for my new icon: Check this!

Uh, DJ...that thing sucks. Sorry, but pea-green just isn't you.

That thing's a lavalamp? I thought the Thradd in question was toking a joint (hence "flower child"), and that was the smoke from it. Heheh, silly me...

ADD: Ok, he changed it to bouncing breasts of a nameless, faceless girl walking down a sidewalk.
uh...
I'll let someone else insult his integrity.

Well, if you go back to the outermost layer of the forum, you'll see this nifty little thing near the bottom of the screen. It's in a dark blue bar, and it shows you who all is online.
Maybe that'll give you an answer.

Is it just me or does the girl in DJ's icon look like her neck is snaping at the end/begining of the animation? Jeez, man, if you wanted to show some bouncing breasts, why not do something classy and show her face too?
Or don't you want us knowing what your mom's smile looks like?

Culture20, thanks for clearing up the lava lamp thing. I thought it was some sort of warp core behind the pilot.

Being the Linux geek I am, I went with Tux, the Linux penguin.
Don't ya think he's kinda cute?

Aside from th fact that I don't agree with you on this topic, just take a look at the top 15 posters in the members section. Notice that the top 8 are not mentioned by you? (With the exception of DJ) Maybe it appears like it, but I am a minor poster compared to D_999 or  Lukipela or DJ or Necro99 and many others.

First, did I ever do anything to you that you try to insult me with lame jokes?

Second, what is the problem with the icon? It isn't like I taped it...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Roll Eyes ( I found it on the net).

And last, My fault I have things to say? And there are thread I don't have a single reply because THEY ARE NOT INTRESTING(in my opinion). So you can leave any time if you have a problem with me, Luki, Necro C20 or anything else. Kapish?

The problem I see with your icon is that many people will find it annoying and/or offensive.
And in case you can't tell, my icon is Elvis Stitch.

And who is that?

My Icon is a Androsynth ship. I chose it because I admire its sleek grace, and because Androsynth used to be my favourtie race.

EDIT: In the long honoured tradition of a_s_b when he is annoyed, I will simply answer the following post from here, the previous post.

What is the problem with DJ's avatar? It's some woman walking down a street. Yes, you do not see her face. Yes, it's centered aroudn her chest. So what? She's not naked, she isn't making any sexual innuendo, she's just walking. What's there to be "disgusted" about? You may as well be disgusted about some stupid cartoon animated character that keeps yelling and waving its fist.
