Those leader ones are pretty good. I think the McPhee fist-pump .gif from last night should be incorporated into whatever we go with.

You need a decent still shot of it to add it in. Can't use any animation because 3 frames is basically the max for an avatar (it won't animate if the file size is too large).

Here's what I have:





Send over your player photos, ideas, suggestions.

I think we need to put it for a vote in a few days once we have 3-4 bids.

EDIT: Changed last frame.

I suggest maybe adding a black background to the letters, since they lose some detail scaled down to 125x125. Love the Weagle background.

All of these are good. The Leader is Good, Leader is Great is really clever. And I really like the Forgot to Flush idea. I'm cool with whatever.

I think a lot here depends on how you scale it down, what program you use. I tried adding background to the letters, it looked quite messy because this is such a narrow font.

Thanks for suggestion, I'll play with scaling down and fonts.

Here is the image scaled down using Lanczos filter via FastStone Image Viewer:



Look at the capital "C" as an example. It clearly looks bolder when scaled down using Lanczos. What do you think?

Although I think last year, the poll results were ignored.

Yeah, I'd just been using the "scale" feature in GIMP. If there are better options then of course that changes things.

Last year, "Because it's the Caps" wasn't even in the poll IIRC, it just sort of happened.

I've just seen Hendy interview. So who will make a "Playoffs, baby" theme?

If we're doing Forgot to Flush, Brouwers has to be leader of men, of course.

And we can add in a few fail-tank ones in forgot to flush.

Yeah, it ultimately just comes down to what people with photoshop skills feel like making.


@fedfed, I like those...I think with Green the infamous pictures should be used in the "you forgot to flush" frames.

I'll do this one tomorrow. With all the playoffs hype and some big personal news periods of sleep have been few and far between.

I don't understand this comment... we barely made the playoffs while being in the SouthLeast, this thread was definitely way too early.

BTW, to use Lanczos in GIMP, go to "Scale --> Interpolation --> Sinc (Lanczos 3)"
it's Cubical by default.

Have a little faith in your team bro. They have been playing a solid brand of hockey. Take away the horrible start in their first 10 games, and its a landslide.

Yeah, this although I'm ok with forgot to flush so long as you leave it there. Fed's stuff for that theme looks good. The ladies say no to poo pics.

I do like the you forgot to flush theme as well.
