I'm gonna make the best avatar in the world... but I'll accidentally delete it and I'll have to make a crappy one, losing a perfect chance of letting the world know how cool I am



P.S. Hey, cut'n'pasting one of these smilies could make a good avatar...

Well, if my avatar turns out crap, I'll just console myself by taking part in the guessing of who made avatars for whom

Yeah, I guess it is a while. But the main reason is that, with 22 people involved, I have to make sure that everyone will have enough time.

It looks like soon I'll be one of the only ones that hasn't started

Ditto that statement J.B., and further apologies to the poor bastard who's trying to fit "not in santiago" into a 50X50 space. Completely non-requisite, unless you're up to the challenge.

I'm half done and already up to 27k. Curses, damn, and other expressions of extreme disgust.

Oh man, tell me about it. That 20k limit is a real S.O.B. (I haven't started my avatar, but I've had many headaches with it in the past)

If you host an avatar instead of uploading it, is there any way to enable it to be bigger than 20k? If so, I can host everyone's and we can all be done with this stupid limit. I've tried hosting one above 20k once, though, and it didn't seem to work, but I'm in no way sure that the kb size was the problem there. Does anybody know?

Wont work, as the avatar is still temporarily stored on the forums server, so the 20k limit still applies. I tried it myself ages ago.

I dont really see a problem with the 20k limit. My current avatar is around 100 frames i think, and its ok...Just...

That's because most of the frames are very similar to each other - only a few pixels need to be redrawn. My current avatar is a slideshow of 15 still frames. It was going to be 16 frames, but that made it over 20k. 16 frames is not much at all.
Almost every animated avatar I've made has had to have compromises made. But anyway, nothing we can do about it...

I've made my crappy one. I know no one will like it, but I don't mind. By the way, are we allowed to make more than one avatar and make them all enter in the contest?

Yeah, Jellby, just one avatar. Choose your best and submit that one. But by all means, please make the other ones available to your avataree (and for the rest of us to see, if you wish)

And I'll look at the avatars as much as I want I'm going to make mine now, and - trust me - it hasn't been in any way affected by the 4 avatars I've seen so far (it was always going to be tailored to my avataree anyway, so the other ones are kind of irrelevant). The only thing that's changed is that I now already know that I'm not going to win But I already had the main idea for my avatar before the contest officially started. And I'm not going to take part in the guessing of who made which one
