first off How in hell did you manage to post an avater the size of a football field when the system denies anything larger than 75 pixels square? And to answer your question - YES! :happy:

I don't HATE your avatar but it is annoying. I'm just grateful you haven't got the car pic as it, but it would be fun :D.
How did you get a big avatar anyway? I'm happy with my 75 x 75 one!

PENDO!

I'd like a bigger avatar so I can post better Black Hawk Down shots. :D
And I heard needles won a trivia contest, which permitted him access to a large avatar.

If your talking about your current avatar, yes, it's a bit big. As for your attached file, I don't care, as long as it's not as big.

Needles

I dont know y I added that photo,I felt like it,and I think it is a legal avatar on the forums,or i got the privelige from winning thrawns contest.

Well done to you for winning it and fair play to you for having it (I'd go for a better pic, tho' ;) ). I think it's a shame you started this questionable topic tho' as it makes you come across as a bit of a twat :p ;)

I think it'd've been cool if you'd just posted in other forums etc and waited for people to ask you about it. :cool:

Good on ya!

Oh, we've asked about it jeddah . . . :D

DeadEye, I believe it was a hoax in saying that he got the avatar for winning the contest - if anyone recalls, MrHat had a large one recently, no one knows why it allowed such a size.

To answer your question Needles, yes I do hate it. Passionately! ;)

Is there some glitch going on? First the letter *, now monolithic avatars ! :crazed:

I agree, it is rather annoying. Sir Steve or JT, or some other mod that knows what the heck is up care to comment?

Yes. Just my opinion.

Needles
07-30-2002, 01:52 PM
it is quite huge,maybe I will change it

Beast
07-30-2002, 01:54 PM
Well, with the amount of people that dislike it and are annoyed by it, yes. But just like Jonna, that's just my opinion. :D

it's distracting, but funny that it's somehow allowed on the servers! i don't really care one way or the other. i think you should use the cadillac cien, though, as it is like, the coolest car on the face of the planet!!! besides KITT, i mean

Needles
07-30-2002, 01:56 PM

with "displacement on demand" technology that shuts down one whole side of the engine and effectively makes it work like an inline 6, but when you need all 750 hp, the whole engine lights up!

Needles, be careful. Not only is your avatar dangerously large, but you're exhibiting the highly lethal tactic known as post-padding! Watch yourself, because guys like derek, whose vision is clouded, will pinpoint actions like post-padding on other forumites that don't even do it! And the true felons--like you--will get away with it. ;):D

You may want to consider expanding your posts and making them a tad longer or making them all at once.

Post padding is a surefire way to get your boyz whacked with a hammer. :D

No, you aren't necessarily screwed. Try to keep your posts informative, non-offensive and free of profanity. If your post padding becomes a problem, the mods will give you a warning. If it's still a problem, they'll whip out the hammer. :D

Needles
07-30-2002, 03:02 PM
o,well usualy theres nothing I really could post about,:(

Um forgive me for entering the fray again, but at the risk of pointing out the bleeding obvious - why did you come to a discussion board when you have nothing to say? Why post at all if you have nothing to say? I think you'll find the forums over at the official star wars site are more suited to that kind of membership. Star Wars dot com (http://www.starwars.com)

billfremore
07-30-2002, 04:08 PM
No you're not screwed, but you do need to be careful in putting up a lot of one word posts.

The mods tend to not like that very much.

I find most of my posts are 2 lines or less so you're not alone in thinking your the only one with not much to say.

I should really just stick to the threads I can relate too,instead of getting lost in a conversation and posting one lined messages,sure this is a 4 line message but ,one of my longer posts.and yes I have no clue at all.;)

actually after you posted your message your message is only two lines and not four. But, amount of lines doesn't matter aslong as you can prove your point or get your message through to the targeted addiuance.

EP, I don't know much about the company, but the car is called a Koenigsegg. I'll e-mail you zip of about 6 pics of it, if you'd like.

I for one like the avatar Needles (or liked it to be correct). Ki-Adi flashing a peace sign seems to be priceless. The size was a little bit big though, as most people have pointed out. If in fact that was your prize for winning the trivia question than I think you should by all means go ahead and take advantage of your present. Maybe if you kept the avatar, but shrunk it a little bit, then I think more people would say it would be acceptable. If I were you, I wouldn't make it 75 X 75 rather bigger, but not as big as you had it earlier.

Anyway, if you wanna know what's up with the big avatar of Needles' (and why NOBODY CAN HAVE ONE! :D ), check out this thread: http://www.sirstevesguide.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=12883


Needles, post padding is making a bunch of posts that are like one word or have little to do with the topic of conversation. SirSteve frowns on the action, it's a no-no, but I don't think you're "in trouble" yet - just be a little more careful, especially when posting twice in a row.


As for the Ki-Adi flashing a peace sign, if you need help whittling its size down to 75x75 (the max for SSG avatars), feel free to email me with the larger version and I'll be glad to help. :) jeditricks@sirstevesguide.com

Thats alright,its been sized down to 75x75 already

I like that pic, I remember it from the Insider . . . I think the caption was, "Silas Carson points out what Episode they are filming." :D

I was just turned off by the size of it before, that's all. :)

well, it's a prototype "concept car." but a lot of the technology will be used in many production cars, like the displacement on demand feature. i do hope that they decide to produce this, or something like it - it would be really cool to see a US manufacturer go up against lamborghini and ferrari!

on a side note, the cadillac xlr IS going to be produced, and it's almost as cool!!! it's basically cadillac's corvette. it will be produced in the same factory as the corvette (bowling green, kentucky) and share the same frame construction. it's a two seat roadster with a retractable hard-top, and a 4.6L engine putting out at least 300hp.
