They were so cute!   But here's to FREEDOM (or somethin'!)!!! EDIT: For anyone that wants the old avatars, have at it hoss! Download 'em for yourself! http://ocremix.org/etc/ocremix-vbulletin

If you changed your avatar and changed your sig to a crappy MSPaint scribble. Nobody would know who you are.

You'd have quite a few people saying "STOP CAMPING COOP'S NAME!"

I'd be wandering around the forums in an amnesic state, popping into random threads with a lost look on my face asking, "Do you know who I am?".

Ahahahaha, they do have it! Superb. I shouldn't have to tell any of you who this bloke is - it only got GOTY several years running.

Oh shit I just lost some of my internet anonymity.

Finally wanted to give my formal thanks on this (ongoing) project, which has been a huge success. As is somewhat customary around here, it took a LONG time to finally get things implemented. :lol: With the switch to vB solidified and djp giving me some limited but handy admin powers, I'm now in charge of maintaining OCR's collection of forum avatars, approaching 1,000 avatars to choose from.

As y'all can see, the categories have been reorganized, specifically breaking up all the VG-related avatars into company categories, hopefully making it easier to search what's available. Some of the smaller categories like id, Technos and Namco are very ripe for expansion, so I'm looking forward to future submissions helping us out.

I first wanted to thank the UnMod Avatar Project from 2005 for helping freshen up OCR's stagnant collection of stuff. We needed the changes very badly at the time.

For this specific wave of the avatar additions, loads of people deserve credit, more than I can name offhand. There are several people who helped on a larger scale that I wanna acknowledge: Joyzilla (who got things rolling), the late and lamented Nineko (who unleashed his inner crazy and got banned, but we still appreciate), Doulifée, The Coop, Evilhead, SoloGamer, Polo, Andy Jayne, & Gollgagh.

Thanks for everything, bros. Your hard work in particular had helped make the avatar project the success it is. Hope to see more! Everyone browsing the forums, I hope you enjoy the selection around here as well as OCR's deep music collection.

Amen LT! *salutes* Thanks for taking the time to look over our subs, accepting, rejecting, commenting, and being particular about the quality and all. The end result is a golden collection.

I'm happy to be a contributor / find my subs in the colorful archives / see people* sporting my avatars / read my name listed among the more notable contributors. Many awesomes.

Even if vB's 4-image limit perseveres, I find it's not that big a deal after all. I'd say it forces us to be more judicious with our subs. 8-)

* wormguy - YOU'RE WELCOME :lol:

Pardon me for being slow on the uptake, but how did I get Crash as my avatar automatically? :P Whatever, thanks very much to everyone who contributed to the new icons.

My money's on Arek BTW. *munches popcorn*

LT: Nope.

I say you give all credit to Nineko. I tried to submit a Crash avatar myself but he did a better job than what I could pull off.

Yeah, I actually haven't been around much outside running PRC. College life - soon to transition to real life - is starting to get really demanding. I'm doing ok though.
