For no good reason, I declare tomorrow TODAY to be Change Your Avatar Day! To participate, you must Change Your Avatar!!!

Are YOU up to the challenge?

Can you make a 7/10 split from your old mangy avatar? (2 for 1 bowling/your mom reference!)

Don't be a LOSER, we'll all know!

As for me, let's just say that local things are for local people and leave it at that.

Sure! MOST of the above! I will give a solid GeekGold gift of indeterminate quantity to one lucky participant (a prize AND a free giveaway!) We shall contest for the best...avatar! And we could all sing "Big Rock Candy Mountain" at our monitors as we make our submissions!

Jatoha has graciously volunteered to make animatronic plushies based on the images submitted for avatardom (thanks, Jess!). Each of them will be placed lovingly in a Game Bag by Diane (thanks, Diane!). Those should go out--real, real soon, I'm sure. There will be no raffle.

UPDATE: Isaac won the random prize! Get your entries in soon, but wait until tomorrow!


DISCLAIMER: I'm still waiting to hear back from Jess and Diane so temper your expectations

Heck, why don't we all switch to the same avatar? That'll really confuse the uninitiated who stumble into Chit Chat. devil

Yeah yeah yeah! Lets do it!

I know I am lame in thinking this, but, what if that is the day that Richard Breese decides to record the avatars for the Boardgamegeek game?

What? Don't we get a warning? They should post a notice for picture day, like when we were back in school!

I am not willing to totally change my avatar, however I would not mind having it alerted, unfortunately I do not have the software or skills to do so. I am willing to give 2GG to someone if they would like to alter my avatar. Maybe put some dice in the middle or something.

I think that spearjr beat me to it, but due to my internet filter I can't see what he posted. I made you one per your request here:



It also says "CCCYAD09" for "Chit Chat Change Your Avatar Day '09".

Let me know if you want anything else in there.

Edit: Ah, now I see his images... odd. Nice job though, Spearjr.
