Playoff Avy Request Thread

Since everyone is so damn indecisive we're making a poll that ends tomorrow. Here are the two examples of what we are debating. They are not finished products as Jules has stated but rough drafts that can be worked on.

Playoff Switch:



60 Minutes:

I switched -- pun unintended -- over from 60 Minutes.

I like the switch idea... and those two examples are great but to me don't show he real options range... I like showing the players in clean cut regular season pristine image and then in dirty, grimy mussed up unshaven image.

My only issue with it is that without much text option because of size restrictions...that's basically all it would be. Clean shaven players, then players with beards/looking angry.

Like my one above, huh? ^^^^^ haha

I see your point... but I actually like that better than the clever funny remark one.

It's a shame we couldn't go with both... people picking whichever suits them better.

EDIT: Also it could be more than as you stated... more than the beards and angry snarls... It could be he cuts or exhaustion or triumphant celebration as opposed to a lackadaisical image.

Hmmm... both are sort of esoteric.

60 minutes, I guess.

It all comes down to the same thing...clean player becomes dirty/banged up player.

60 minutes seems too cramped...i love the cleanliness of the switch, but if i could state, let it be an actual switch, not a BUTTON!

The vote seems split quite evenly.

So I propose that this be an option





If you'd like a period at the end of it let me know, It may take some time.


Avatars will probably have to get disabled again soon anyway.

Seeing as using someone elses playoff Avy is frowned upon, how do I go about getting my own original one done?

I've read the many many posts about it all, and it's left me a little confused

Any help appreciated!!!

I voted for the switch..

Was just thinking, mayb there are too many frames..

I am in love with the idea, but mayb the switch can bee eliminated entirely..

The first image can be something with like a retro or dark effect.. then the second photo could be bright and have a 2011 playoffs symbol in the top left or right, similar to last yr..

Then this way we could have some more writing.. which is what i think made last yrs avy's such a success.

An example would be:

First image (sorry, i dont know how to upload images): pronger injured in reg season (with dark or "greyscale" effect)

Second image: pronger stealing the puck from the stanley cup playoffs..

Im sure that as the playoffs progress many more ideas would come up..

And this still incorporates the switch effect, the only difference is, we dont have an actual switch, but we have a change in effect from like grey scale to colour with the playoffs logo in the corner!

What do you guys think???

Well since Pronger master isn't an option, I guess I gotta go with the switch.

Turn on the switch b****es!

I'd like a Bobrovsky flip the switch avatar when you are making them, since someone already called Giroux.

At First


then Bob is like

There should be no switch, it should be all about the 60 minutes.
