View Full Version : Is it time for a new avatar?


Raiderhader

I've had this one for a few years now, and the one before this was a Terminator pic as well (just seemed like the best possible pics to fit the steelskull nickname, ya' know?).

I'm torn on it personally, there is a part of me that would like change it, there are so many other cool pics out there, and plenty that will still fit the nickname. But there is the other part of me that is proud of the fact that I have stayed the course this long, a sense of stability through all of the changes that have occured on the board. And I know that there are some members who identify a poster by their avatar, and thus I and Dartgod have to be a couple of favorite posters amongst that segment of people. But, two avatars (obviously not counting the three or four I was given originally....), both of the same movie character, in 4 years has to mean I'm entitled to a change, doesn't it?

Ok, obviously I am entitled to a change, but should I? It's not that I don't like this one, I think it is cool as hell used with the nickname, but maybe it is time for a new look. What do you all think?

Wouldn't it just be easier to change your title to "numbskull" and use a photo of random Raider/Bronco/Charger fans as an avatar?

Hadn't thought of that one. Some time back I was looking for a Galdiator screenshot of Russle Crow wearing that sinister looking helmet, but I could never find the angle I was looking for (straight on). And it seemed kind of boring to me after having this bright one for so long.

I have a successor lined up currently , I just don't know if I should make the switch or not.
