Perma profile pic?
« on: Mon, 29 October 2018, 22:33:10 »
I have no idea how many times I've changed my profile pic in the past few years (too many).

But, how in the world do you guys keep the same profile pic?

This includes those that haven't had a profile pic in years. Just--how do you do it?

I donít feel I need to fiddle with it as Iím happy with my choice I suppose.  Itís quite unique and I think thatís another reason why I donít tire of it.

Why do you change yourís?

I have never given it a thought to change it, I usually choose an image once and leave it forever. I had changed my youtube avatar after nearly 10 years(almost 2 years ago now) just cause I wanted to use that avatar somewhere at least. Plus it isn't something I look at often unless I want to quickly glance through a thread to find my last post and what was said after the fact.

It sets a brand for your profile, something people can recognize and know if they are wasting their time reading your post or not when skimming through a topic.

A lot of people see a pink Buu Boo and know they can just skip that comment and not really miss anything.

I usually don't read usernames when skimming through forums; I recognize people by their profile pictures, so it actually confuses me a bit each time you change yours. I am getting slightly better at recognizing the names and not just the pictures though.

I have wanted to upload one, but I really don't know what I would use, so I just never did.

I think variants make the most sense for those who prefer keeping the same avy basis. Romevi is an example, and Halverson if you count shark variants by other users :p



Only a couple select forums I've come across have had a strong avatar creation culture (focus more on high quality masks, seasonal variants, hype variants, praise and critique). I've enjoyed being a part of them.

So all I need to do is commission an artist to make me a new avatar for every newly created holiday? _JK_ If there was an avatar of the month thing romevi would totally win all of the months

I've always wondered how he rotates those images. Does he do it manually every day? That would be easy to script if GH had an api... does GH have an API? (maybe I should just ask him myself)

It's possible to cultivate a community who'll contribute for their own reasons but based on what I've seen it takes a large userbaseóboth from a numbers PoV (a smaller number will be creating them vs requesting them) and having a wide audienceóin addition to a board culture that appreciates and spends time discussing/rating/quoting avatars, providing various motivations for creating them and also having one others will like.


I've always wondered how he rotates those images. Does he do it manually every day? That would be easy to script if GH had an api... does GH have an API? (maybe I should just ask him myself)

I'd expect it would manually. There was a short-lived user account I enjoyed who switched avatars throughout the week to variants they'd create. Was always amusing until they were unceremoniously banned for being an alt account of a previously banned user. At the time I created a Halloween version of it which was then fittingly further transformed and used by other users following the ban. Coincidentally another reference to the user just this month I adapted into a Halloween variant. It's curious how some relatively obscure user from years ago can live on through avatars.

It sets a brand for your profile, something people can recognize and know if they are wasting their time reading your post or not when skimming through a topic.

A lot of people see a pink Buu Boo and know they can just skip that comment and not really miss anything.

Even though this has at some point come up before (and was clarified), I still think that your avatar is a Pokemon every time I see it.

:)) I did, as a result of thinking about what I said above.  A green eyed monster is a more accurate representation of my current state, maybe I'll make more to reflect my mood and swap regularly based on that.

I enjoyed the original 40 years ago although it was a shameful Star Wars wannabe.

But the reboot was one of the best shows EVER, although its quality eroded as the series wound down.

PS - if you ever have a chance to attend one of Richard Hatch's talks, you should do it
Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. "Real power is fear. It's all about strength. Never show weakness. You've always got to be strong. Don't be bullied. There is no choice.
"You've got to deny, deny, deny, and push back on these women," he said. "If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you're dead. That was a big mistake that you made. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You've got to be strong. You've got to be aggressive. You've got to push back hard. You've got to deny anything that's said about you. Never admit."

That would be difficult. Richard Hatch died last year.
Even though I am not a BSG fan myself, I still know that he had a reputation for being great with fans at sci-fi conventions.

Firefly
Strek
Stargate
Battlestar
Starwar
Babylon 5 > all of the above.
The show was cursed though... Too many of the actors in it have died much too young.

PS - if you ever have a chance to attend one of Richard Hatch's talks, you should do it
That would be difficult. Richard Hatch died last year.
Even though I am not a BSG fan myself, I still know that he had a reputation for being great with fans at sci-fi conventions.

Firefly
Strek
Stargate
Battlestar
Starwar
Babylon 5 > all of the above.
The show was cursed though... Too many of the actors in it have died much too young.


Hrrrm... babylon 5 would be difficult to place on the list.. On the one hand it's never been a very convincing show because of the lack of resources,  on the other hand the story is far more vast and deep without tediousness.

It would be impossible to remake Ba5 today with its scope, given the current cost of american labor.. which is truly unfortunate.. 


I agree B5 is better than battlestar and starwars for sure..   Between stargate and B5.. mmmm..

OMG! I had no idea!

Last time I saw him was DragonCon 2016 and he seemed quite healthy and full of life.
Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. "Real power is fear. It's all about strength. Never show weakness. You've always got to be strong. Don't be bullied. There is no choice.
"You've got to deny, deny, deny, and push back on these women," he said. "If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you're dead. That was a big mistake that you made. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You've got to be strong. You've got to be aggressive. You've got to push back hard. You've got to deny anything that's said about you. Never admit."
