If using an avatar that is already made are we to switch now or would it be better to hold out and switch avatars collectively when a majority have been made? does it matter?

Hey everyone,

Thanks for voting and I appreciate all the great feedback! I thought all the avatar options were great and it was pretty cool how they were all so similar! This should be a lot of fun and I love the ideas already submitted.

I'm at work now but will begin working on them tonight. I also have a pretty light weekend (just LOTS of football) so I should be able to get a good jump on the requests.

I'll start creating in the order they were submitted and will post a few at a time in the thread and mark who it is assigned to. I also believe Plong123 will be keeping track in the original post so you can see if your idea has been taken or not.

I am bitter and spiteful because as a result of the work of you and others my design only got two votes.

Admittedly, tho, my vote was not one of those two votes that my design received. BUT STILL.


I have no idea if the PSD will work for me and mine, but I intend to give it a try.

Ok. So for us non-media savvy types who are trying to "grab" pictures from the CBJ website from the galleries - how do I get one other than in "thumbnail" version?

right click on the picture and 'view in new tab' if you can... then click on 'insert image' on here and paste the web address to the photo.

hope that helps a little..

There is a difference if you end up with the slide show type deal or the pictures themselves concerning which right-click options you get.

Also, if you find a thumbnail you like, switch the "thumb" part of the link with "std".

Searching for pictures, but I'm going with A Call to Russ for Kris Russell or A Call to Energy/Grit for Derek Dorsett (depending on which player I can find good enough shots for.)

Provided there aren't any objections with the fine folks who have already claimed Calvert, Nash, and Russell, I'd like to grab a few frames from my video



I'd like the words "A Call to Joy"

and whichever of these works better on the first or second portion, don't care




If anybody else wants frames out of the video, and haven't downloaded it from YouTube, let me know I can post the frames if you want.

skraut: I edited the first post to include reference to your video, which was clearly the inspiration for these avatars.

Nice thread. I like the idea but seeing as I am Scotch and cheap

How about these: A Call for the Playoffs: "Playoffs?" (Jim Mora voice)
A Call for the Cup
A Call to all to got to see it live
Will someone please answer the call?
Who is calling?
Who are you going to call?


Well, the phone is ringing, better answer the call

Tigerblood1 chose Leo, so I think we are safe.

That's cool!

On an unrelated note, if you're going to use one of the pre-made avatars, use the right one

I don't mind if you put them up right away. Whenever is convenient to you. We'll all get there eventually. Early adopters will get the "WTF is that" comments from the mains first, I guess
