If you don't know what 'Avatar Week is': http://i2.kym-cdn.com...

Basically, all the regular forum members (who want to participate anyone, some people don't change their avatars ever or simply don't want to join the fun... whatever) change their avatars to match the chosen theme.

Some examples of themes we've had before: Album covers, favourite musicians, favourite video game characters, favourite dictators ...

Generally we try to avoid duplications (I was amongst 3 or 4 John Lennon's during musician week >_< I maintain I was first! :P)

I purpose we have a new avatar week, starting from the 14th...
And the theme I suggest: Memes!
Pick your favourite meme, whether it be a certain lolcat, advice animal or just "Y U NO guy"...

I'm open to other suggestions.
"Caitlyn Jenner is an incredibly brave and stunningly beautiful woman."

I agree. Memes for the first week it is!

Or any man that breathes on earth.

Theme suggestion: favorite artist. Then I could cop out and say that Bill Waterson is my favorite artist and keep my current avatar. : )

My past six avatars have been music related so I agree shouldn't do that.

Would be funny if we did what Mirza said and all changed our avatars to Roy's Lol

Except when we all decide to choose the same one.

But, I have strange premonition that Roy will veto this prospect. Any thoughts?

I say we all change our avatars to a picture of a cat, so that we look like some cat worshipping crazy website!

On a former site I frequented, we would use the BORG from star trek as a theme and we would put in our sig's

Reminds me of a game i used to play. Whereas there were a group called the "B0RGS"...
They would get a username change and change their username to.
"B0RG1"
"B0RG2"
and so on.

We should assign numbers to everyone! :/

In memory of our beloved leader and wisest hamster, I think we change our pic to Kim Jong Il looking at vegetables.

1. Find meme pic on the internet.
2. Save it to your computer. (right click, "save image as")
3. Click "Edit Profile", then on "Picture".
4. Upload pic.
5. ???
6. Profit

Lots and lots of profit...
