Hey,

As inspired by the post by Boyles Design a new seasonal & friendly competition has been born!...

Best Members Avatar

As the name suggests, members vote on who they think deserves to win the Best Avatar - Summer 08' competition.

There is no set criteria as design is so subjective! - So simply reply within this topic with 2 members who you think has the snazziest avatar! - Nominations will run for 1 week (ending on Saturday 23rd August)

Then we take the nominations and vote (using a poll) for the winner for Summer 08

Happy Nominating!

:)

My Nominations:

1. Roberto
2. Notbanksy

How do we see the avatars? I can't find their userlookups.

No worries

If you want to look at a user, you can use the member search:

Also just to clarify what an avatar is:

Many thanks.

Cool competition, although I think the manga ones and anything not unique (ie. downloaded and non-customised) shouldn't be allowed to be nominated. That takes me out! ^_^

My vote is for Dizi *bops head*

Tough one - I really like the new cartoon avatars, Robs is really nice. Dizi's cat is really cute and fun to bob along with. Wizely's ectopic whale heart beat induces stress, just waiting for it to beat(live damn it - think of the children). Helen's avatar has been pleasuring its keyboard for several weeks now + Elanmans thigh high boots, with the suggestion of backless wonder pants ( just me?) - with his voice a cross between Cartman + Frank Spencer(well in my head anyway), has to be favourite.

1. Elanman
2. Helen - because its rude

You have a truly wonderful imagination Roberto!! :D

**they're not really 'backless wonder pants', more of an 'open crotch playsuit' :) **

You're welcome! yeah - it is not always the number of weeks spent sweating over something that makes it work. Simple is often the best... (wow. that was really deep)
