Gimp (free photoshop like application). Knocked the color palette down to 48 colors and then used a difference tool which essentially removes pixels of the same color and position from subsequent frames so they are only stored once within the GIF.

No one ever came up with an idea for the theme. Thought about it but I got nothing.

THIS! Something around "I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite store on the Citadel," would be epic. Maybe like "I'm Henrik Lundqvist, and this is how you win a Vezina," or "I'm Dan Girardi, and this is how you block a shot."

Any interest at all for a Qvistian theme? Perhaps another idea altogether?

There's one day left on voting. If any other theme besides #therightway and Aliens had a strong backing I would consider throwing up a showdown poll for Friday-Sunday with the most popular ones so any of the odd-man votes could be put towards one of the themes we may actually be using.

Or people could change their mind if they decided they wanted to.

Thoughts?

We could do like.... patron saints.

St. Girardi, patron saint of blocked shots
St. Prust, patron saint of underdogs
St. Boyle, patron saint of being huge

Could have stuff with Bible quotes.

"Torts is my shepherd, I shall not want for ice time."
"For Lundqvist so loved the world that he gave his only begotten pads."
"'Gaborik come out!' And Gaborik came out of the tomb."

The 10 Commandments:
"Honor thy Captain and alternates."
"Thou shalt not steal the puck from Dubi."
"Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's goalie."

Thinking more about it, the Qvistian theme might be the best. It offers practically infinite variety and it's an original creation of HFNYR.

Do not like the saints idea. Boston already did saints.

If we are talking about religion and hockey, this is the piece I posted in a PGT against Buffalo.


Henrik Lundqvist, full of grace.
D. Hasek is with thee.
Blessed art thou among men,
and blessed is the fruit of thy performance,
glove saves.
Henrik Lundqvist, stopper of pucks,
pray for Brad Richards,
now and at the hour of his buyout.
Amen.

Ryan Callahan : Thou shall have no other captain before me
Lundqvist : Thou shall not take the name of thy King in vein
Lundqvist : You shall not score
Gaborik : You shall not save
Torts : Honor your coach
Garden : You shall not covet the holy land

All ended by "we are qvistian"

The Qvistian and RPG themes are the newer ones that seem to be caching on. I think if you make a final poll it should be between Ancient Aliens, #therightway, Qvistians and RPG. I really like them all. This is gonna be fun to see which comes out on top.
