Forum avatars take a lot of time and thought to use. I need to find one that wholly describes who I am and what I stand for in life. You can't just throw up any old image and say "Hey, look, here's my avatar".

Or it could be that I'm too lazy to find a good image. If anyone has recommendations, I'm open.

Nah, I'm just here to keep Awen from going crazy. She likes to refer to me as "her little minion". But you can feel free to take my appearance as you will

I did!

But if I can get an artist to do my Oddjob as Starfleet Officer makeover (it's kinda like a contest but with no prizes) then you can have this one. I imagine you'll be making this face quite often as you read the forums!

Oddjob image here for "contest" participants:

Here's just a quickie Oddjob-as-Starfleet-Officer.

Of course, if you have a different uniform you'd prefer, I could give that a shot later on.

You win!

Hey, Daeke. You can have my goofy Kirk avatar now!

Thanks, Whatinblueblazes! And might I add that's a mighty fine forum name.

First of welcome to the forums,

I'm sure someone at Cryptic can come up with a cool avatar for you.
I'm impressed on your early posting, usually we don't see any dev posts til much later in the day

Glad you like it, OddjobXL! My forum name may not be in honor of the most devious hat-chucking Bond villain ever, but I think it works.

I second the motion that Daeke takes up the goofy-Kirk-as-avatar mantle bequeathed by OddjobXL. It works for a community administrator on so many levels -- in command, wanting to strangle himself (or others) at times...

That's 'cause we like to sleep sometimes

It's only 8:30 a.m. on the West Coast. I haven't even had my first cup of tea yet.

Welcome Daeke!

I think it fits well too. But I could be biased...

I can recommend the one I'm using.

The application can be found at the end of the link in my sig. I'm sure we can get it processed asap.

Anyways, here's a screenshot for you:

Oh, wait. It won't upload for some reason. Oh well
Welcome Daeke to our side of the universe and may your travels be relatively smooth
