Avatar Roulette II


Can I be honest? Your avatar looks old and tired. It looks like it just lost a general election ffs.

How long have you had it? ... That's too damn long. Don't get me wrong, I actually think it's a great picture, it could just use a break and maybe a new filter/soapy wash. If you don't give it some rest time, well, all I'll say is your love interest might start looking around at other people's big, appealing avatars. Then one thing will lead to another until...

Luckily you're in luck! A year ago today the first Avatar Roulette took place so, like a hated relative at Christmas, AR is coming around again and you can't do a thing to stop it.

Last year's thread: t:avatar-roulette?f=7&hilit=avatar+roulette


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So, what is Avatar Roulette? The rules are as follows:

1. Sign up
2. Create one avatar (or more)
3. Send it (or them) to me via PM

Once avatars are collected, they will be randomly given out to people who signed up. Every person will have one of their avatars go to someone else -- those surplus to requirement will be used if anyone fails to create an avatar, and the unused ones will be shown at the very end of the game.

You must keep the avatar for a month or I'll tell everyone you didn't, and they'll hate you.

Sign-ups welcome at any time.

Deadline for avatars is 11:59pm, Sunday the 6th of August.
Avatars given out on Monday the 7th of August.

You might be thinking "I'd like to sign up but I don't know how big an avatar should be, and how do I get one showing up on GRcade from my computer anyway?"

Let's turn to internet hosting expert, Eddie Murphy, for the answers to those questions:

Hey man. You probably want to use Microsoft paint or some gooseberry fool like Photoshop to make your picture.

Now I would suggest you use the following dimensions: 120x150 or 120x120. You do whatever man, just don't make it too small, ain't nobody got no time for that 10x10 bullshit.

Ok now in terms of getting that picture off your computer and onto GR... you'll want to use a site like https://postimage.org/ -- upload your picture to there and copy the direct image code. I said the direct image code. Don't you be strawberry floatin' around with those other codes like some rookie now.

And don't you be makin' Mel B portraits or I'mma whoop your ass.

It shouldn't need one. Aside from talking about what made you choose your entries, and saying what you think of your new avatar there's not much to say? There's no backstabbing or anything (perhaps there should be, but it's hard enough getting people for the simple version).

Sounds fun - I'll give it a go.

My avatar is definitely both old and tired so why not!

It's only for one month anyway, then you can go back to your old one, should you wish.

First and last bump. Hoping for a minimum of 10 otherwise it's not really worth it imo.

Screw it I'll run it whatever the numbers.

I've changed the title -- you've just over one one week to create and submit your avatars to me via PM. If you want to you can give a few lines on what made you choose what you did, though it's not needed, it could add some fun at the reveal.

Sign-ups and submission are welcome up until the deadline.

Did you try to change it from this one?:

Either way, I remember that avatar was actually the sole handmade one from last time (done in MS Paint by Kezzer)!

Mid-game reminder that avatars are due by the end of Sunday. Ta. :)

(Re-posting so I can use quote alerts. Please ignore if you've sent one already. Will send second alert on Sunday evening).
