You ain't ever seen so many avatars!..now VOTE!

HERE THEY ARE!

Put yours on now!

Voting:
-Please take your time to view each one properly before voting.
-Make sure your browser is capable of displaying animated GIFs!
-Do not vote for the one you made. You may vote for the one made for you, if you think it's the best one.
-Voting will end in 8 days from now
-Once voting ends, I will reveal who made which avatar and show who got the most guesses right.
-Anyone can vote. (except for me)

I think I can safely, and gladly, assume that everyone here is above cheating, so I won't mention how pathetic it would be to cheat in a contest without a prize which is meant to be fun, and a celebration of the skin-love community.


Guessing:
You can try and guess who made which avatar. The person who makes the most correct matches shall receive...nothing. But they'll be happy in the knowledge that they've proven that they're the koolest skin-lovin' kat around! (Well, almost as kool as the kat who made the winning avatar )

-If you are an entrant in this competition, do not post your guesses here - or it will help everyone else guess which one you made and which ones you didn't make. PM me with your guesses instead - I'll publish all the guesses after the voting has ended.
-If you are not an entrant in this competition, you can just post your guesses here.
-You need to make your guesses before voting ends (8 days from this post)

The following are avatars that you can not vote for.

They are spares that their makers decided didn't quite make the crunch for submission into the contest. They've been published here so that everyone can see them, and also so that the avatarees can take them and use them if they wish. But do not let these avatars affect your voting - they are ornamentation only!

caz (non-voteable)
cyana (non-voteable)
Pukkaboy (non-voteable)
Mr Tough Guy (non-voteable)


e-raser x 4 (non-voteable)

Just a question... was it done in pairs? i.e. I did someone's av who did mine?

// well done guys. it's a tough choice.

Sorry, db, after all that nagging, I'm a leave it til the morning. Or I'll vote for the wrong one. There's one I like but it's probably not the best technically. but it suits the person. I'm going round in circles. Halp!

Damn! I was going to vote for the best avatar... and then I realized it was the one I made

Someone thought I'm a spider... I don't know why
But someone thought Not in Santiago is a spider too
I had a good laugh at Mr Tough Guy's

Could you post a zip file with all the avatars, so we can download them all at once (you'd have to host it and post a link)?

Many who live deserve death, some who die deserve life - can you give it to them?
Then be not so quick to deal out death in judgement.

I love mine too. The person that made would have it dug into the archives and found a six-month old thread where I posted a pic of one of my favourite paintings, because there it is in my avatar

Well, I'm going to alter mine too. I think it would look better if my name was spelt correctly



Heaps of people are guessing avatars here, revealing which ones they didn't make. I know it's probably just because some people have an aversion to reading properly , but I think it might be better if everyone just went ahead and guessed openly. What do you think? I'll let a consensus decide, or whatever.....................

Yours is great. I think it's one of the best ones. Certainly one of the cleverest.

So how come not everyone has put their avatar on?

I noticed that too... and that helps me in the guessing It should be someone addict to name misspelling and veteran enough to remember that picture (oh... I'm afraid it could be almost anyone )

Edit: I didn't put my avatar yet because I don't want to influence the voting by making everyone used to the cool new avatar... I know it's stupid, but I'll use it as soon as the voting ends

Well, it's time to vote.

The final choice was between Simon Snowflake and GoldenSphynx, but I finally voted for Simon's (it could have been different if the fly had more 'life'). By the way, is it possible that Simon's and Saotome's were made by the same person? they have similar concepts.

Loads of great creative avatars up there.

I like Jellby's spider the most (not difficult to guess who made that one!)
Close second was GoldenSphynx's fly. I've an idea who made that one too - I remember someone making a very similar Mikro skin a long time ago.

They're pretty cool, aren't they? I especially like the inverted yellow one.

Hehe, I feel like Santa Claus handing out toys to everybody....(after the elves have done all the hard work by making them all)

I'm for open guessing. Seems like people want to do it anyway.

(In which case, I'll go with Simon making Skinme!'s, and Atmo making Cleanup's)

Ah screw it, I changed my mind. I think it will be more fun if people guess now. so Guess away!

but (please read this)

1) Please only guess the ones that you have a decent hunch about. If you guess all 23/24, that would just be like telling everyone which one you made

2) Feel totally free to give a red herring! ie. Pretend to 'guess' who made avatar x, when in fact avatar x was made by you! That way, people will know not to trust people's guesses 100%, and no one will know for sure who did what!
