I personally admire aysiu, so I copied his avatar, and edited it a bit. But it's not original. I have no ideas, but if you can help me, I will try to draw them in gimp.

Just think of something you like and put it as your avatar.

NOT a tux variation. Tux in speedos, tux in a tux, tux naked, tux in a soccer jersey... Please not another tux.

How about a dragon? Dragons are cool.

My avatar is the the visual interpretation of a high energy particle collision Or my dog depending where you look
Nothing wrong with patchwork kitty though:)

Oh, but I don't like being a copycat. And copying the phychocat's cat takes that phrase to a new level of meaning.

That's not furry artwork. Furry artwork is artwork which involves humanlike animals. This is not the case.

A black furry feathered dragon, humanified by sitting upright, reading a paper and drinking coffee. If that's not furry artwork, then I don't know what that is.

im not so sure you are aware of the internet-slang meaning of that word.

google image search 'furry' with safesearch off if you would like to learn, and vomit.

I this evening tried to freshen up my avatar by changing it from the static one you've all come to know and love to an animated one with a strobing light on the top.

Of course, I was immediately balked in my attempt.

Subsequent research on my part reveals that management of UF decided to ban animated avatars, with two exceptions:

1. *Some* normal users who's animated avatars didn't upset the admins; and
2. The Admins themselves (naturally)

Now, see, I can't help what kind of idiots are or have been on UbuntuForums. I really can't, and the reason I can't is that I can't help or be accountable for the actions of anyone but myself.

Bottom line is I'm not interested in not being able to use an animated avatar. I'm interested in being able to use one. Why should I have to be punished along with everyone else when I've done nothing wrong?

If the administration here cannot figure out how to manage their users, both good and bad, then really the problem is theirs', not mine or that of the rest of the "normal user" community here.

Ah, +1 for sure.
I agree 100%. But I was unaware we couldn't have animated avatars. Though I tend to like the admins on this forum. Try the Heroes of Newerth forum... crazy moderators there. Close threads for no reason, say something you don't like - ban. Crazy stuff.
Anyway, it would be nice to have an animated avatar :)

I got mine by stealing a minix racoon wallpaper at their home site and gimp the black background off it so I could use it as an avatar.

Well, there is a saying. There is nothing new under the sun. :)

That being said, I wouldn't change it much, especially since you seem to have managed to become well known with that avatar.

That sounds rather... bestial.

As for avatars: I advise wholesale copyright infringement. That's how many/most avatars around here get born.

Avatars are like girlfrends. When you're young you'll get through a couple a day. As you get older, you'll keep each one longer. Eventually you'll find one you'll want to keep for the rest of your life.

Note I said: you'll find one you'll want to keep for the rest of your life. Things happen, you'll go off her. It.
