I've never demanded anyone have a sombrero or not. For as long as I choose, I shall keep my purple-ness and sombrero-ness.
I'm a combat veteran who also survived Hollywood. I'll survive this, too.
Indeed.
I was planning on wearing a sweeeet sombrero to the Vegas Con and now I'm being told it's not cool any more?????
The fact that a couple of the usual persnicketies complain about the sombrero thing motivates me to keep mine even more.
If we get rid of our somb reros then the terrorists have already won!

Thank God a few of you have some sense and want to stop this nonsense.

It was annoying and profoundly unfunny for all but a handful of people.

I think everyone should change to a hypnotoad avatar in tribute to my everlasting glory.
That idea sucks.

You suck, and no one supports you.
hypnotoad is a lot cooler than sumbreroes

No, incidentally, just before I read this thread, I changed my avatar. The new one is promoting the Trek Art Comic Project and doesn't include a single sombrero reference. Maybe you're right. I mean, I still love the whole thing, but I think it ran its course. And that's okay...
I notice you've added a new frame since yesterday, which means I should probably go check out the thread in the Art forum, eh?

Re: I think its time to change our avatars back.

I've only had my "Phantom of Krankor with Sombrero" avatar for 2 weeks, one week of which I was too busy with real life to even post here...I think I'll keep it for a few more days.

Of course if someone reads this post a few days from now it won't make sense, since I probably would have changed my avatar anyway, such as I normally do every 2 or 3 weeks regardless.

By a "handful" do you mean the dozens of posters who have taken part?

is it wise to hack off an entire galaxy


it looks rather quiet but it could be plotting.

but really if i let the objections of some people dictate what type of avatar i had here i never would have worn one connected with enteprise.

Yeah, you definitely should. Venardhi posted another superb panel. Nice to see that you're following the story.

Yeah, liking it, so far. The mix of media and individual styles is fun, too, and Venardhi's adds another twist to the plot.
