Themed Avi's and GDTs
 
It was pretty fun doing the themed Avis's and GDTs last year, maybe we can get something happening again?

I'm no good with photoshop so wouldn't be much help. I always appreciate people putting in their own personal time with these kind of things though, so if anyone does end up doing something I'm 100% behind them.

Props to Kostopolous for his GDT last year. I didn't care for the pimp theme, but the effort was exceptional. I don't post from a computer ever so it would be extremely difficult to for me to contribute, but I'll read them and contribute where I can.

The MS Paint avatars last season were pretty awesome.

I think a Die Hard theme would be appropriate for this season. I have no photoshop but can help wherever I can.

Who's going to create the GDT for the season opener?

I can't do photoshop for crap, but I can at least think of names... Jarome McClane, Mark Gruberdano, Mike Esperanzallei, etc.

If people want me to do GDT's, I will do them again this season.

Yeah, definitely keep the themed avatars and GDT's going. I had a lot of fun with the MS paint avis. It definitely took my mind off some of those bad games haha

How about lego man for each player? haha

How about as a tribute to the 80's Flames, photoshopping each of the current members in either mullets or hairband hair?

Worst part of the lockout? No Movember GDTs :laugh:

Maybe Moustache March to make up for it?

InfinityIggy 01-21-2013 12:15 PM

What if every time a player acquired a new nickname (Whirling Dirvish (Stemps lol)), we make an avatar for that player.

This will obviously take a while as we will probably only get one or two gems a game but by the end of the season we would have a hilarious nick named roster.

EDIT: Also a big fan of using that lego man maker to make avi's.

Rob Kerr, came up with that beauty in the offseason and didn't waste time putting it to use.

Janko Unchained 02-09-2013 02:04 AM

So tomorrows GDT will be the first with a theme (other than Hudler) for this season. Just letting you guys know.

I Hate Chris Butler 02-09-2013 02:25 AM

:thumbd:Wish I had seen this earlier. :laugh: Started a generic GDT with no real theme.

If you want, I'll just send you the roster pics I made up.

Themed Avatars
 
I've noticed a lot of the other boards having themed avatars. Has their been any thought to doing that for us?

I think it would look better in GDT's then several different action shots, my ring and whatever Skobel's is.

MuffinMerc 02-17-2013 09:30 PM

I like Skobel's!

I'm not a fan of themes unless it's playoffs. Sticking with our own thing tends to stand out, and gives everyone the opportunity to go with what they like. Theme avatars just tend to get repetitive.

The majority of people here, I know simply by looking at the avatar.

Moustache march HAS happen. I've kept all of the old images, and have already made the new ones.

Atleast I think I've got everyone...

Hudler, Wideman, Baertschi, Cervenka, (likely Taylor/MacDonald now)... was there anyone else added?

Skobel24 02-17-2013 10:30 PM

Although chances are, I'd use a theme avatar, and just put the cat face over the players.
