Ominous it's going to be tough to match the "face perspective" of robo-darth with a real picture of Sid.

Do you have another version of that iron-jaw darth which is more of a flat perspective? IE face squared to viewer?

It's working in the quote you made. Just refresh the page and wait an extra second or two if you don't see it.

http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/pi...ictureid=12201 is the IMG address.

Can we say this is the official playoff avatar yet?

I love the idea of using 'All In' as our playoff avatars, but I feel like they are pretty disjointed. The All In slide is great. The Shero w/the 'Dewey defeats Truman' newspaper is great, but feels like we are setting up the 3rd slide to be about trolling people or something. And then the third slide is just a player with no text or explanation.

I'm not trying to rain on the parade and I'm definitely not knocking the efforts of those making the avatars, I just don't get the punchline.

Alternatively, if it's easier to remove pixels...




Just awesome. Darth Sidious. Just do what you can. Light/s/a/b/e/r preferred.

Thank you so, so much.

This thread should still be alive closer to playoff time? I'm crazy/weird/crazy weird about putting it up too early. Also I'll think of a good idea for a pic to use.

Otherwise there are some great ones so far and the work is top notch.

Is there supposed to be a punchline? Most people are just choosing one of their favorite photos. Nobody went in to much detail on what the third frame should actually be.

I can not speak for everyone, obviously.

But All in was about Shero making the big splash in free agency, trading Morrow, our firsts, seconds, etc. and getting Iginla especially, but Morrow and Murray too. My panel is of one of those pickups, Murray, so how does it not fit?

I think it was kind of a compromise. There was some division about the "All In" theme, then with the execution ... this one seemed to make everyone happy.

AVATAR QUESTIONS / COMMENTS:

1. Is it official? Yes. 93% is a sufficiently good ass-kicking / sample to make it official.

1. What is the Punchline? The Tagline or punchline is ALL IN.

2. How does Shero fit? The Shero/Truman image thing directly related to the Tagline, as Iggy was the trade that made it realz, like andre 2999. If there was no Iggy trade there would be no ALL IN. That's the event that cemented it for nearly everyone.

3. Third panel is supposed to be your favorite player, fictional character or personality going all-in. There doesn't have to be a punchline with the 3rd panel but some people are using one.

Same here. I can't update or upload a single pic without the error.

Are you guys using the Image Address for the URL? Right-click, choose the Copy Image Location / Address item, then paste that into the avatar URL field. I think that should work.

IMO, Go with Iggy and Morrow. Fits the theme and moves made.

And I like the avatar you are coming up with.

And yes, it is time. I think we can potentially clinch as soon as tomorrow or the day after.
