After seeing sodax77's new avatar (brilliant stuff), it occurred to me that JohnSteed should perhaps tackle the lofty assignment of compiling a Top Ten Avatar list.

While I can't imagine anyone topping sodax, it would be cool to see JS' assessment of things. :notworthy

Hi "greedygirl" :) ,


Well, the thought had crossed my mind. It's a great idea! :thumbsup: But, I feel that THAT would be too biased of an opinion. Certainly fun though.


Oh darn-it... too tempting to pass-up... :rolleyes:


Oh, alright... If I DID have to make a "Top-10" Avatar's List though, it would go like this...


"Top-10 Avatar's List"


(in John Steed's eyes)​


#1
Simmo!

:notworthy :notworthy :notworthy :notworthy

- The handle/avatar works oh-so-well together. I would imagine that Simmo! would be a fun person to hang-around and gab with. I think his avatar says as much.


#2
GrandMaster

- Scholarly, adroit, serious-minded, intimidating, and highbrow. The picture couldn't be more precise in defining the handle (and perhaps the man behind-the-handle).


#3
Slotchik
(as "Jane Jetson
")

-With hand-on-hip, it just made sense with all the ??? and !!! responses that Slotchik routinely uses. Tough yet fun.


#4
PhilipfromParis

(as "the Fonze")

- Tacky and spot-on. Philip seems upbeat in his posts, as does "the Fonze" in that particular photo.


#5
WarriorCherokee

- Colorful, vibrant, and BIG.


#6
KasinoKing
(as the fat man in the tux)

- Worked VERY well for me when I first found Casinomeister.com. I somehow miss that avatar, despite being petrified of it for so long.

#7
Jetset

- Sure it's simple enough, but there's so much more to it. Studious, smart, informative, which goes with the handle. The avatar marks simplicity at its best.

#8
Sodax77
(as the spinning-cube)

- A technilogical breakthrough for avatars. 3-D at it's finest.

Sidenote: You wrote the above post while I was writing this. Odd stuff...


#9
Mousey

- In a nutshell... cute. Makes me almost want to go out and buy a pet mouse and have it fitted for glasses.


#10
gaputernut
(as the happy computer)

- Again, like "Sodax77", pushing the envelope on what can be done with the avatar.


"Noteworthy" avatar...

"Silcnlayc" for "special" reasons. Let your mind wander a little... (ahem)


Steed takes a 5 minute break...


***

...and returns just in time for...


"Top-5 Avatar's"
that either
"annoy me" or "creep-me-out"​


#1
2brnot2b


- Fucking annoying. :mad: I don't like fighting, but I really want to beat-the-techno-snot out of the person in the photo.


#2
"Casinomeister"
(as the devilish Santa Claus)


- We know that Mr. Bailey is a handsome lad, but while I'm okay with the green wrestling mask (or whatever that is), and I'm happy that he participated to make an appearance in that particular outfit... IF I had a child, I would NOT let my child near the screen. Sorry sir, but it's too creepy.



#3
sal monella


- Makes me want to vomit. :puke:


#4
KasinoKing
(as a "suspect" Santa Claus)


- While I applaud the whole "Merry Crimbo" theme... nevertheless your Majesty, in my humble opinion, it's still creepy stuff.



#5
tim5ny
(a few months back)


- The one with his daughter was a great idea, but the quick-motion was murder on the eyes (even moreso than the lime-green I occasionally use for coloring text... worse than THIS). That only lasted a couple of hours, if I recall.


Sidenote: "greedygirl", I was JUST thinking about your avatar, when I was glossing through the latest "GAMBLING ONLINE MAGAZINE". It reminds me of "GoneGambling", although I never really go there.

Hope this helps your thread. :)

Y'know, talking *creepy* avatars the one that sticks in my mind was that of "Jyde" who used to post here a lot and was a great contributor. His avatar was a silently screaming person slapping her face simultaneously with both hands and it always unsettled me. Very effective.

Great list, JS. :thumbsup:

Agreed. I'm hoping that I'll bump into Simmo! in London this month, but I know I'll be disappointed when I realize he isn't that goofy purpley-blue blob in person. :p

Gawd. Now I'm gonna have to change my avatar. I'd hate to think anyone would associate me with GoneGambling. :lolup:

Well, on second thought, you do sorta' look like that claymation "orange" that sang opera in that vignette from "Sesame Street". Does that help any? :D

(not that I'm expecting anyone to know what-the-hell I'm talking about...)

LOL. I'll be there - and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised GG...although that "photo" was taken a couple of years ago now and there are one or two wrinkes appearing around the eyes now. But i still do that nervous winking thing which makes me look so endearing ;) My mother was beautiful as you can imagine...

Great list, JS. :thumbsup:

Agreed. And i'm honoured JS :D

Totally agreed on Simmo's! It was months before I realised it is actually winking, and it's not just my eyes going crackers from all those spinning slots! :D

Probably time I went for a change, I'll have a think today!

The Weihnachtsman creeps you out? C'mon - I be jammin' to some funky reggae beat!!

Maybe I need to upload an animated gif so you can see my moves.

Or was I jammin' to Soundgarden - can't remember - it's a blur.

I was wondering when you were going to say something (lol)! :D


Hahaha, no I'm cool with the "Weihnachtsman" (I'm guessing that this is the character in the green mask... don't wanna' keep putting my foot in my mouth). :thumbsup: They can make a plush toy of it and the kids (that I don't have) can play with it for all I care. I was talking about the "Santameister"... or is it the "Claus-Meister" (seeing how you ARE in Germany and all). That creeps-me-out a bit Bryan. Those... eyes... :eek2:

Weihnachtsman = Christmasman :D

The eyes match the intensity of my reggae beat - or thrash metal - or whatever.

Gosh Johnsteed,

It took you less than 2 hours to compile this! You are making us look like zombies. The only reason you have been able to do this must be that you have been cloned a dozen times and that there are 13 of you working on this.

Good work,though.

WHAT!!!


I was told specifically by Captain Needa AND General Veers that there were no remaining Stormtroopers on Planet: EARTH. Must I always reduce myself to having to play the bad-guy, having to choke these people just enough to get things done. :icon_evil Did they take a boat from Costa Rica to South Korea? Last I heard, those prices at this time of year are murder on the credit cards (George Lucas lent me his AMERICAN EXPRESS :D ).


I'm seriously ticked! :mad: :mad:

Hi Tim :) ,

Sorry about that. I was going off of an earlier thread where somebody had made that comment. Nothing was said about it afterwards, so I assumed that maybe she was your daughter. Maybe I'm confusing forum members here... hmmm.... :what:

Regardless, it was murder on the eyes. Glad it was changed to what it is now.

Nice one Mr.Steed! :notworthy

Just for you, as Crimbo is sadly over :(, I'll go back to Mr.C for you for a while...

For the benefit of anyone reading this post when these 'horrors' are long forgotten & have not the faintest what JohnSteed is on about... see below!

(John, you can close your eyes if they scare you too much... :D )

PS: The fat one is on the left....
