I don't even recognise all the noob avatars, I rarely read the main sections of this site.

 

It's been ages since I actually went to any of the equipment subforums. Mostly I hang out here in the lounge or do searches when I want to find something specific.

If we stray too much from that then they are just going to look like random beats bashing avatars or odd individual taste smily_headphones1.gif

 

Agreed. The OOO thing had a very clear theme to it. The n00b avatar thing is a little less focused (since there's different ones; maybe we should have taken a poll on which one we were going to alter and all stick with that one), but it should still work.

 

I think it's awesome that somebody actually started a thread in the lounge about October's theme, asking what was up with all the Scotty avatars.

+1, we should vote on one image to alter.

That might not be necessary. It should still work well, since the n00b avatars are pretty recognizable. It would make it a bit easier for people to come up with ideas, though. I think the main issue now is the lack of access to all the n00b avatars. I'm going to start collecting them as I come across them in threads, and maybe I can get enough of them so we have some variety and post them up somewhere.

 

Plus, I don't want to have to redo mine if it doesn't end up being the P5 one. biggrin.gif

Of course you guys know that if "One Image" wins, we're gonna have to vote on which image that would be...

+1. I am not saying we need to pick ONE image, I am just saying we need to stick to the Head-Fi default noobatars.... and not stray off onto other ideas or pics.

Yeah...sigh

 

 

 

The only problem is that noobs don't interact too much with us and thus not many recognize the avatars if they are modified such that over 50% of the image is..hard to see. I will bet most won't see or remember the no image availble one of mine to connect with noob november

Fixing vote..

One Image 1
Multi Image 2

I guess the changes will have to be obvious but leave a lot of the original unscathed. I think there's enough interaction with newer members (in a lot of the lounge threads at least) that people will recognize them, but we have to make it clear that it's a theme.

 

Maybe we should all agree to put a single, easily recognizable item in all of our avatars, that way there's enough visual consistency that people know it's deliberate.

 

EDIT: Hey, where'd everybody go? Don't leave me swinging in the wind until November (too late, I guess).

I have to vote One Image too. Then i'd fight tooth and nail for the P5 + iPhone one since I worked hard on it.

Updated the OP so that people can easily link to it. Tell me if it needs a bit more tweaking. Woke up late today and decided to futz going to class today. tongue.gif Besides, it's damn cold with this early winter Russia seems to bring this year.

Would we need a real poll just to vote? And then can we edit out that poll next time to start a new poll? I don't want to mess up the lounge forum with our poll-threads lol.

^ ^ Awesome! You really did get it all in there. I guess I wouldn't feel so bad if one image wins the poll, since at least the P5 would have a good shot at being the One Image to rule them all.

 

How'd you get yours all lined up? It looks like you even got the rim around the screen, with reflections in the lower right corner. It was a right pain for me, involving much image rotating, resizing, and cropping, and at some point, despite the image being slightly larger than the original iPhone screen, I just said it was good enough.

 

EDIT: The OP looks great. I'm still collecting up default avatars. I think once we've got them all stored up, we should put them on the OP (under another spoiler tag) so people can help themselves.

So that's why the screen isn't 4:3 anymore!!! I based mine from your 'shopped image. Measure how much the screen is angled relative to the horizontal axis, rotate it accordingly to bring the screen straight, cut off your Sasaki image, layer the Movembered Nozomi behind the empty iPhone frame, align it without cropping and just resizing, and lastly just rotate everything back. et voila. Oh and I coloured the borders of iPhone screen again since it wouldn't matter for a 150 x 150 avatar.

That's a great idea.
