NEXT WEEK ITS THE SECOND ANNUAL ANIMATED AVATAR WEEK!

Can you beleive its been 15 months since the first one! My how time flies!

You get to replace your standard avatar with one that is no more than 80x80 pixels.

They must be removed by Monday October 13th.

For the sake of clarity (and to avoid giving our rugby-feuding friends a headstart), can you define what time zone the date starts by?

I only ask, because I suspect many might be aiming for similar or identical avatars, and in fairness we should have the same shotgun (sorry gun/anti-gun nuts) start.

Anyone else notice that the selection on free non-pornographic animated avitars seems to be getting proportionally smaller?

Speaking of porn.....

I have this avatar already picked out of Jenna getting her "sumtin sumtin" licked by Britney Spears.

OK?

Can you increase the file size a bit? I've found a few good ones, but they are all in the range of 10000 bytes.

It seems like the really good animated avatars are too large for this site. :(
Yes... I know that mine is not a cardinal. That one was 90x100. The woodpecker was the closest I could get - they do often come to the feeders together.

Wah! I'm jealous of Cardinal's avatar...

That one would be perfect for me. Where did you find it??

I just did a search using "animated gif cardinal" and got a list of sites with bird gifs. I don't remember which one I found this guy at, though.

There are many avatars worthy of the Town Next Door at:
That is where I found mine, except I seem to have lost the animated portion of it.

There are some great shot gun and giggly girl ones there too.

Rugby-feuding friends? Who can you be thinking of? ;-)

The World Cup starts this week.....

Let's see if Chet is checking in regularly.

Can we shrink this down and make it his avatar?



Let the games begin!
