Is there a way to disable flashing .gifs on my screen? Those avy's are painful.

seriously, if we end up with the flashy avatar, im gonna end ad blocking every single one of them.

come to think of it, it's a really bad idea, i mean who are we aiming to piss off here? ourselves? who do you think frequents the habs board, canadiens fans or bruins fans?

no likey

Just in case you folks don't know : If the flashy avatars annoy you then just press escape on your keyboard and voila !!

And i'm in the "too annoying" camp as well. Just too hard for the eyes and it may be dangerous for people with epileptic issues.

Anyone using that flashy avatar gets an ignore from me. I try to keep my sanity when I log on here. Unless you plan on going to the opponent board just to annoy them (sure way to get a ban)....

The avatar is supposed to cheer and pump us primarily. Annoy the other fan bases is a remote second or third.

I don't feel like doing it this season. I'll let someone else step up for me.

Anyways: The Recchi MD one had the most potential in my mind

Recchi says or Recchi prescribes:

Go net, puck net - photo of AK
Just relax - photo of Price (from the preseason)
Cam-malaria - photo of Cammy
Get over the hump - photo of Lucic
Choking - photo of Bruins v Flyers
Play white way - PK
Retirement home - Recchi
Theres got to be plenty of height jokes, maybe a turtle neck joke

just wondering if we are excluding a "drive for 25" part. I've always liked the way that sounds, but on top of the respect/classless thing.

IMO, it would be cool if the format is like:
1st image= AK scoring (text: living up to potential)
2nd image= pic of AK's profile pic and a stamp diagonally across that says "Classless"
3rd image if possible = Habs logo (text: Drive For 25)

if the 3rd image isn't possible, then just make the 2nd photo the logo with classless stamped across

I'm not a fan of the Respect idea to be honest. It's too sarcastic. I think we should either be looking at something legitimately humorous or creative, or otherwise something that shows we are united as a fanbase and a team, and we believe in our players.

If we do end up having to use the No Respect theme, I would want it to be something like "History Remembers Winners, not Respect", although that's a bit wordy. But even still that doesn't really work with what we're trying to do... so I dunno.

THIS I am a fan of. If the second pic was black and white, with a stamp thing over them. I like that one.

Anything but the flashy thing.

I don't mean to be a *****, but it may actually cause some posters here some physical problems. On a site where offensive comments are removed and banned and profanity is censored, I don't see why that flashy avatar should be even allowed.

The flashing (seizure) avatars WILL NOT be permitted.

I can't believe some of you even thought it was a good idea. Get a freakin grip, guys.

I bet the Respect/History has no respect was everyone's 2nd or 3rd choice since we can vote for more than one.

It's okay but its kinda uninspired.

Was horrible.

But it's not like it was going to be our official avy, especially with the poll up and all the potentially-GOAT ideas in it.

Do we at least have any volunteers to make the avatars? If so, speak up please.

I like the against all odds idea, something about Jacques Martin would be nice like the first frame shows a player smiling the next Jacques not approving or something ike it.

LIKE


And at last a final one that says, GOTTA RESPECT THE SYSTEM!

It has been a heated subject all year long...

Good job already done anyway!
