2013 Playoff Avatar Thread | All In 2013 | DESIGNERS WANTED! Apply within!

With a shortened season I think we need to go ahead and have an avatar thread to work on, spin ideas, and come up with a theme for us to us. Whether its a unified theme or just a place to share ideas or creations... I think this is a thread we need.

---

Remember guys we have to follow the rules and conduct. So the SOPO, thing is/was getting out of hand. Do not post about it or for it. MOD WARNING: Page 5

Be sensible, the rules are fairly common sense for an all ages board. If anything is questionable in your mind, but you like the idea... PM a mod about it first before posting to get a okay or not okay on it.

Let's come up with something good for this year.

Red Panda for sure.

but another idea dawned on me when looking at the poster Richard's avatar, which is a painting of Richard Cœur de Lion: royal cognomens. you know when you hear the names of kings like Pedro the Cruel, Æthelred the Unready, Philip the Good, the names which are appended before or after the real name are cognomens.

Paul the Accursed (from Sviatopolk the Accursed)
Eric the Unready (from Æthelred the Unready)
Deryk the the Quarreller (from Louis X of France)

Dgeno Unchained is gold. I like the epithet idea too.

Truthfully I probably won't change mine until playoffs however.

Yeah... same with me. My avatar has become a part of me now.

I can't wait for the 2nd movie to come out so I have more options to choose from.

Whenever I see you post, I get excited, because I know that Ron Burgundy is among us.

You are single-handily responsible for that Flyers series.

A) No retarded Internet Themes (YOLO), no matter how sarcastically intended.

B) I like the "Player Unchained" look (the graphic) but I think it would be hard to fit in with everyone's name. Works well with DGeno, not so well with others IMHO. But it's debatable.

C) With all the **** that went down last summer and lockout, it's hard to imagine an avatar without at least a red panda visual. Consider working off the "Full Panda" motif and see where it gets us. Maybe take the most ridiculous complaints about our team (from inside and outside the fan base) and say "You've Gone Full Panda" or something like that.

Geno: "Russians Want to Stay in the KHL"
Sid: "No Leadership During Lockout", "Faked Neck Injury", etc

I enjoy this idea as well as red pandas. Many red pandas.

I really don't see a way we use anything other than fully-clothed red pandas.
