I'm game for that.

It's a pleasure to finally have seen all your faces. It really feels like I know most of you better now. And I hope some of you feel the same about it. It has been a strange experience showing my face to everyone. But at the same time it was funny, too.
I feel that way, too, about everyone. It's certainly been a fun journey.

Ooh, I like your new picture, NCC1701.
I think it's kinda funny how you sound a lot nicer than you look, NCC1701!

Not that you don't look nice! (actually you're quite hot!) but you sound real friendly-like but look like the kind of guy that would make most people change sidewalks if they saw you coming towards them
I guess it's just the eyeliner I wore for this shooting. I also kinda try to look badass in most images. I don't think I look very manly, so I want to make up for it with an earnest stare at least. Believe me, in reality I don't look intimidating at all. Rather confiding and needy actually. Plus, I can't say I ever noticed people changing sidewalks when they catch sight of me.

But ... thanks for the compliment. You're certainly one of the nicest guys around here, too.

But I will probably go back to my regular animated (and anonymous) avatars by tomorrow. This has truly been a fun week. I'm so glad everything worked out the way it did. I really really really hope we can do this again at some point in the future. Maybe in a year or so. Let's make it a tradition, okay?

Once again I want to thank everyone who participated. It's a pleasure to finally have seen all your faces. It really feels like I know most of you better now. And I hope some of you feel the same about it. It has been a strange experience showing my face to everyone. But at the same time it was funny, too.
Got to be honest with you. I saw the picture and the first thing through my head was "Six..six six! The number of the beast! Hell and fire was spawned to be released! YEAH!"

I like it though!

If I ever get my rock band together, you're invited to join!

Which is one of the two songs I know by Iron Maiden. The other is Bring Your Daughter to the Slaughter. But I can see why I remind you of that. And I can live with it. I am a rocker, after all. (Well, at least I try to be.)

You're welcome, my good sir.
At heart, I am a rocker also. I just hide it really well under layers of niceness. Niceness and polyester.

I like it -- you look kind of intimidating, but artfully so. Definite metal rock material.

But I will probably go back to my regular animated (and anonymous) avatars by tomorrow. This has truly been a fun week. I'm so glad everything worked out the way it did. I really really really hope we can do this again at some point in the future. Maybe in a year or so. Let's make it a tradition, okay?
Sounds good to me! It truly has been a nice change, hasn't it? I feel so much closer to all of you (okay, someone stop me before I become really sappy).

I'll probably go back to some cartoon character or muppet or whatever within the next day or so as well, but before that happens, I've decided to use one last pic. As a way of saying to this whole thread, my last avatar is one of me boozing it up -- this was taken last year, when I was out enjoying the nightlife in Leeds, England with my sister (whom I have cropped out of the picture, because a Trek board is probably one of the last places she'd want her photo posted ).

I look forward to the next time we do this.

It has been a fun week. Smashing idea! I'm deciding if I want to go back to my Gore-zilla Av or find something new.

I don't think you have anything to be worried about, with your looks.

(BTW...I think I'll go back to my Tekeny Ghemor avatar in a few days, but it's been fun letting you see me as I would be if I were actually able to get hold of the right facial makeup. )

I'm too lazy to find another avatar right now, so I'll probably leave it like this for a while. Though I really don't post much.

I like this one better, so agree with everyone that said so. I think it's the eyeliner that does it for me.

I like how you rounded the edges too.
