ENTER! Misc Avatar Contest "Presents!"

Thanks to all those that participated in the previous contest, Here; http://trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=152217 And again...Thanks for the votes!

New Contest!

Since it is that time of year of giving and receiving of gifts...I thought this would be a good time for...PRESENTS!

Basically come up with an avatar that has to do with presents/gifts...etc.

A gift or a present is the transfer of something without the expectation of receiving something in return. Although gift-giving might involve an expectation of reciprocity, a gift is meant to be free. In many human societies, the act of mutually exchanging money, goods, etc. may contribute to social cohesion. Economists have elaborated the economics of gift-giving into the notion of a gift economy. By extension the term gift can refer to anything that makes the other happier or less sad, especially as a favor, including forgiveness and kindness.

Question 1: When you say no TV/Movie, etc. do you mean we can't use images of say, A Charlie Brown Christmas? or do you mean I can't use a TV set as my entry?

I have it on good authority (see this post:
http://www.trekbbs.com/showpost.php?...75&postcount=5 ) that avatars can now go up to 150x150 pixels or 140kb file size).

A TV set is fine, Charlie Brown and other TV shows, movies, or media are not.

And yes, the avatar size limit was recently increased to 150x150.

Re: ENTER! Misc Avatar Contest "Presents!"

In the user CP it still says 140x140??? I will change it to 150x150 though.

LoB is right.

[edit] it is also re-sizing avatars to 140x140??? I just uploaded a 150x150 version and it re-sized it?

Hmmm, never mind then. Maybe it's just a premium member/staff member thing. Mine says 150x150.

There was never any kind of announcement about it, so I just figured it was one of those things Antony was tinkering with in the middle of the night.

Nothing says "I like you" like a few hundred dollars in cash.

Should be fixed now for everyone. Stupid permissions. Thought I had hit all the required groups. My bad.

Bonz's av is 150 pixels tall, but Locutus' is 140 square not 150...



my entry is me, circa 1988 with my new Metroplex transformer toy, a Christmas present.

That's just because I made that avatar before the switch to 150x150 and didn't bother to change it.
