i have a question, since user CP mentions the ability to use a custom avatar, how do I manage to get one, I can make an avatar in no time...especially this size, I'm just curious as to how to get one on the site? Any help available?

I think you just post it in this thread and Liontamer or whoever's in charge will add it to the database when he feels like it.

LT: Way too dark. I think I'll pass on most Disney movie stuff anyway. Don't see any broader appeal.

also a couple from lucky star since there are none atm

LT: Sure

LT: Too bright; not enough contrast.

Lately he doesn't check any threads. Blame his new job.

LT: Correct!

Is there any chance we could get some other mod or something to go over these and approve them?

LT: Nope.

Uhmmm, how would you feel about having roughly 500 or so? I think I can get some Pokémon related ones, namely each pokémon and some game-related symbols and icons.

LT: I'd pretty much use my discretion on what I'd take, but feel free to do a few to make sure they're the right quality and we'll move from there.

Not without shrinking it down to 32*32 or whatever the standard is now.

Then it's the question of whether Larry approves of the image (relevance to video game/geek culture, copyright, stuff like that), and then finally a matter of when Larry gets around to check this thread and in what order he adds what he chooses to add.

-

edit:

1. Basic format is that pics should look good when cropped/resized/F'ed-around-width. That means centered, with sharp resolution, and with transparency when necessary. Shit that looks poorly done is gonna be mercilessly called out by me.

2. 32x32 is the maximum dimensions we accept. Smaller than that is OK. GIF format is the ONLY file format we accept.

3. Please name the files or detail in your posts what characters/games are being shown so that we'll be able to seperate the avatars by game series, company, whatever.

4. Anime, comic book, TV and other types of avatars are allowed, but this is primarily a video game devoted site and the major majority of avatars accepted will be VG-related.

5. I will edit my comments into your posts, so please check what you're posting in order to see my direct comments. I save everything I think is already good and will host them on OCR's FTP when they're needed.

LT: What he said. I probably wouldn't take that heart. Doesn't look like it would shrink down well.

Would someone do every vocaloid, or have they already done so?

I'll try my hand at some later, but right now I don't have access to my Photoshop.

LT: Cool. Vocaloid one are welcome.

I don't even know if they're doing it anymore; they haven't added a new one in ages.

LT: You sure do complain a lot. Consider changing your handle to wah6173. :-)

Whenever there is time, could this replace the current avatar? details are below.

Cowboy Bebop - Spike Spiegel

Read that anime was part of the exceptions, does this still hold true?

Let me know the report on it when you get a chance. Thanks

LT: Anime avatars are fine, but that one barely looks like anything. No dice.

How about something from System Shock 2?

LT: Didn't like The Many; The Marines wasn't sharp enough. The ones with transparency weren't sharp and looked pretty bad. Taking just the OS Upgrade, but it's a nice one.

Could I get some Uprising Teddy Bear? It's the teddy bear from the Muse Uprising single cover. It could be filed under non-game Other.

LT: The image link is broken, but I looked at the album cover and don't see it working as an avatar.

Apologies if Breath of Fire 1 avatars have already been posted for future consideration, but the thread is reeeeally long so admittedly I haven't scoured it to see what has and hasn't been uploaded.

Breath of Fire SNES

Ryu.gif

Nina.gif

Bo.gif

Karn.gif

Second half of the BoF SNES avatars, since this only allows 4 pictures per post.

Gobi.gif

Ox.gif

Bleu.gif

Mogu.gif

LT: We had Breathe of Fire 2, not 1. These were too dark, so I brightened them. Good to go.

Guys, you're forgetting something very important...

This is a side project. LT has a lot of other things to do that are higher up on the importance scale... especially since there's already quite a few avatars to choose from. I know you all want more choices, but just chill. He'll get back here eventually.

As the old Saturn ad used to say, "patience is a virtua."

Well, if that's the case, can't he put another mod on the job?

I mean, it's not like he's the only one capable of adding images to a server

But he is the only one who knows what he's looking for in terms of quality. He's the one who has been doing the evaluating from the start after all, and someone else coming in and deciding what's good and bad may or may not yield avatars that meet (in his opinion) the standards that have been set. It's not just adding avatars, it's making sure they're of consistent quality.

The only other person who seems to be on the same (VG) frequency is Polo, who's gotten quite a few avatars accepted. And even then, I don't know if LT would be willing to hand over the keys as it were.

So for now, you'll just have to wait.

200 and counting, but even I haven't got LT's view of Bueno vs. Ugly down. And I think my Wiki account for updating mascot bios is enough authority on my part. But I appreciate the recognition. :-)

Also, The Otaku, your Bleu sub is 33 pixels wide instead of 32. Might wanna shave off the dark blue column on the left.
