Well, I gave it a shot, and the result was too embarassing to even submit as a possibility.

Ugh I'm struggling. What do you guys think about something like this:



Is this a step in the right direction or am I out to lunch? Be honest please.

I'd like to have Forsberg if we are choosing, and yes Stranger, that looks great!

That's VERY cool. I'm working with someone on something else, but that's a front runner for now, for sure.

also, if you could save the details as a template, so it would be easy just to sub in a picture of whatever player and change the name, that'd probably make it a lot easier and maybe a few others with photoshop could even help you if you sent the template.

If we're claiming players, it looks like I've missed out it a bit. I'll take Kimmo

I'm just throwing out what I'm working on. Perhaps we should give some time for people to submit their own ideas and we could vote or whatever.

If we did go with the above design, we can do it either way. I can submit the template and let people who are familiar with Photoshop make their own or some for others. Or submitting pictures could help too. Its whatever.

We don't have to claim players, there aren't enough to go around and I don't have the heart to see someone sporting a Smithson avatar. Let's just pick whomever from what there is, and if someone requests a specific avatar...they should do as I've done...and submit a picture

No one is beating down the door to work on it, and we had NO ONE step forward last year. We kind of went with a de facto slogan, we may as well go with a de facto design. It's not exactly settling, anyway. I think it looks great...anyone else want to ratify it?

That's not bad, but it doesn't feel as "Predly" as Stranger's, IMO

Here's some good pics, if you guys want to work with them

Legwand


Hamhuis


Erat


Dumont


Timonen

My first choice would be Sullivan, but if he's not available for whatever reason, I will gladly take Arnott....

I don't have any PhotoShop skills. Do I need to locate a small JPG graphic of Sully/Arnott or is someone already doing this for the entire team?

Let me know which player I can use...

Thanks,
Dave T.

I don't know where to post this but is there a reason I can't import an avatar? Is it because I'm a rookie user?

It seems like I remember seeing / reading somewhere that you can't use an avatar until you reach some threshold like 50 posts or have been a user for a certain amount of time... does that ring a bell?

I'm sure its in the Site Rules somewhere...

"After you have been a member for 90 days, you may use a custom avatar, which allows you to upload an avatar image from your computer or the web.

A few things:

I didn't mean that you have to sport the avatar of the player you choose, just thought it'd be nice if we could all see who would like which player so that we could try to get most if not all the players in an avatar and on the boards, but by all means even if someone else already picked the player/avatar you want use it as well!

Secondly: Stranger that looks bad ass, seriously. I love the feel of it, the color is perfect and I like the text, especially with the # and just the last name. Well done, I still say we give people a few days to input their own designs and go from there, but for now you're the front runner (No offense Ti-Girl!!)

Third: Time for me to find some pics of the 'koun!

Instead of claiming players we can just have a few for each player and people can choose. Now hopefully everyone wouldn't choose the same player (I could easily see 5 people with Fiddler) but then again we don't want someone stuck with Smithson like nomorekids said.

If we go with the design above I'll crank out some avatars this weekend. If people have requests for pictures then they can post them and I can incorporate it. If not, I have a good amount of pictures saved on my computer for almost every player. I'll also upload the template in case someone else wants to improve it or make their own.
