Default Retro Avatars

Most of us can't help but associate the person behind the keyboard with their avatar, and some avatars are more memorable than others.

But which one is the most memorable? Which one springs to mind when you think of a poster?

Lets find out! In fact, lets play a game. If you choose to play you will oblige yourself to wear the avatar people picked for you for a week (may be Mod enforced). Only avatars that person used in the past can be voted for. Registration will be open until the other saturday (the 29th), after which voting will begin and last another seven days.

Then on the 6th of July we will don our retro avatars!

What say you?

EDIT1:

Alright we're on. Voting is open and will last 'till next Saturday, the 6th of July.

EDIT: Voting is now closed!

Not gonna play. But how do I pick an avatar for someone? Do I just post it in this thread and that's it?

To be honest, I used to never have an avatar because people make stupid characterizations based off one's avatar.

It's like people view you as the avatar you currently have.

I think the only other one I've had was the Norns one, which wouldn't work too well with the name change.

Is there like an archive or something to see previous avatars?

Smoke chickens out, how sad.

But yes, people post in the thread and I compile the results. Maybe the top three choices will be visible in the OP to make it easier on indecisive peeps, we'll see.

I want Euphie to use one of those he hasn't used in ages. The interesting ones. Those other people hated.

And he didn't get rid of it. He saw the wisdom in making his wisdom visible to all.

It'll be a pity to shed my new face so soon, but what the hell. It might be fun.

Well, I am not sure if I will count in votes from people who don't join themselves, most likely not.

Honestly I don't know why you don't just join. This works best for people like us who had many avatars in our time, could be very fun.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.
Elves are bad.

Looks like fun. I can't even remember most of my retro avatars, so memory lane will be a trip....

Skids: Right. There. What does that badge even mean to you? How has wearing it forced you to modify your behaviour? I'm serious! How has being an Autobot in any way prevented you from doing exactly what you want? Because if the answer is "it hasn't"—then nothing you've said or done in the last six months counts for anything.
