PuckBuddy's idea really is the best one. Someone with the skills should make one of them.

How about everyone blanks out there avatar. A "blank out" if you will.


Or.


Something simple like a blank canvas that just says "Go Caps" Or "Capitals"
or "Washington Capitals" and all of us acquire it. I like the idea of everyone having the same simple avatar. Makes us seem unified, organized.


Or.

So, exactly the opposite of the team we root for?

Precisely. Maybe if we do it, they'll follow suit. p.s. they look great right now.

I don't know what's a good playoff avatar meme, but it sure as hell isn't going to be the same theme someone else started using a week ago. Aliens? It's awesome, but it's taken.

One thing that needs to be there is simplicity and mass production.

The 8-bit avatars took an insane amount of work.

Instead, do what other fan bases do. They can be animated, but make them use a stock slideshow, then one single freeze frame that gets edited.

The 8-bit ones won't work unless Integral quits his job and/or I get less selfish. Both unlikely.

(Or everyone makes his/her own, which failed spectacularly last year)

The funniest was when somebody decided I had to make them, came out with the MS Paint, and people were still too lazy to do their own.

"Hey, can you do one for me with some red squiggles?"

"Yeah, I think I can get that done..."

Kind of hokey but I've always wanted to do a war theme FMJ style. If only Hunter was more like a drill sergeant.

As mentioned in the other thread, a White House themed trolling of Tim Thomas would be funny but does push into politics. Not sure how kosher that would be.

We definitely have more idea people than content producers. Putting a template together is the biggest part.

It would be slightly dated, too matchup specific, and a bit of a stretch in general, but I feel like there's something that could be done with fried chicken and beer.

You really only need three slides, two of which everyone uses. A theme, like Tortorella morphed on Giorgi's face, retaining the wild hair. Then a Caps logo, text and thematic paraphernalia for the second slide. Then the third is the unique part, a single image, usually two images from the Internet, one a player on the ice, and the other thematic.

Making those unique slides is easy, because it's not a bunch of frames.

I kind of dig the Tim Thomas idea.
