    You got the wrong 50% there, :p


    Although intriguingly I have been described by some work colleagues as "cuddly". Even though they've clearly never cuddled me... :vulcan:

    Wow, I love this thread! Thanks to everyone who is participating. You people are just great! :)

    Oh, come on, you look fabulous, K'ehleyr! :techman:

    The reason why I chose this image for my avatar is that it's one of the few pics where I don't completely hate my face. It was done by a friend of mine who's studying photography and did some photos of my band. I like the lighting on this one. But my face ... looks weird. I'm working on something different for the avatar. :)

    Oh, I know just what you mean. :( But I'm glad you made the effort.

    Honestly, that's a very nice pic. I'm so glad you did that. It's good to see all your faces. I will try to memorize them so that I can think of the face behind the post when this is over.

    Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. Please don't do it if you really feel uncomfortable. This is just for fun. I don't want you to feel bad, really. :)

    Ok, I thought I'd join in too. It's a couple months old, I'm too stressed looking right now to take a new one.

    Tell me: what's Optimus Prime like?

    Great idea, NCC-1701. I'm all for anonymous honesty. I'm in. :lol:

    I have used my cat butt avatar (or variations of it) for so long I now heavily idenify with it which is quite pathetic really

    But I guess I can manage without it for a week.

    I'm kinda tempted to take the challenge and leave the Damar behind for a week...

    And I have.;)

    Behold Thor Damar in the flesh! (as it were!)

    You look almost exactly like I thought you would.

    I mean that as a compliment, of course. :shifty:

    I thank you for the kind words and ask only your forbearance of my bad teeth (we Brits have our reputation to consider after all;))

    I absolutely agree. :techman:

    I like this analogy, because it's true. It does feel like that somehow.

    You look great. I think you somehow look like an actor. Full of grace. I'm not kidding.

    Thank you, Praetor. You of all people here might know where exactly I got the idea for this, don't you?

    Ha, that' awesome. You know, it's funny how long a way this animation has gone since I animated it last year or so. :lol:

    Hm, I dunno. I mean, you look great, Thor. But somehow I imagined you more ... Cardassian. :cardie:

    Edit: ^*AHA!* -So you were the one! -I've been trying to remember so many times! -Especially when I made the mistletoe and the without sombrero versions. /Edit.

    Oh I don't know... but It is probably useful -at least for Miss C.

    Yup, that's why the original GIF had my trademark (:rolleyes:) rounded edges. I animated every single frame of that cat's wiggling tail in Flash. But I don't exactly remember why I did that. Might have been because of the whole Sombrero craze.

    Nice work! :bolian:
    I've been looking into that file from all directions to see if I could find some thing to identify the maker by -but of course I haven't been looking at the obvious :rommie: :rommie:


    Would this be more "dark and mysterious"?

    I'll join in. It'll be interesting to see if there are changes in the way people respond to me, and to each other, with our faces on display.
