No kidding! I went to bed sporting my Mabudon original, and woke up with my Jargonian Qui Gon masterpiece back in effect! Anyone care to shed some insight?

Somehow, the computer digged deep into my mini-vault of avatars and found my two cats cuddling out on my couch. Hadn't used the avatar in nearly a year. My guess is that SirSteves changing the forums address had something to do with it.

I've also seen a lot of other forum members classic avatars back once again.

Yes, I went from a black and white photo of me in my Stormtrooper armor, to a color photo of me in same with my son. At least that's what I think it's going to show up as tonight. The color photo was one of my first custom avatars.

I've never changed my avatar so I guess I'll never know if it reverted to an older version. :)

Yeah... mine switched to something from ages ago when the forums switched over to the new server. I'm understanding that it had something to do with the move, and cached images, and voodoo, and the shamrock shake I had today, and...

Phew! I thought for a second there someone was politely telling me that Lanny giving everyone the figure wasn't suitable for this family site in a round about way. I guess I can throw him back up there when the mood strikes! :evil:

ROFL I saw this thread and imagined you logging in at work, typing the post with one hand while you unconsciously readying your taser with the other :beard:
Some kind of weird and unexpected function of the software is responsible I think... but I admit, I thought pretty much what you did at first JJ :D

03-18-2004, 06:58 AM
Just go and upload a different avatar and all will be fine. Too many tazer hits for you JJ.

oh Reason, you know I think you look beautiful no matter what avatar you are wearing.

03-22-2004, 12:04 PM
Oh, Caesar..... you're right. :D

The latest is an homage to the :beard: , they seem to be making a big splash around here. We should have seen it coming when they started making special :beard: variants of figures back in 2002........

Gosh, shocking.

Mine changed, too. I was using the South Park avatar, but somehow my classic "R2 Experienced" avatar is back.

Should I dissappear for any long period of time, JT has permission to change my avatar as fashion dictates.

03-26-2004, 06:46 PM
Oooh, power of attorney! :D "It's my responsibility, so I'm putting RogueII out of the comatose misery by pulling the plug on this latest avatar." :evil:

I just bought a new computer, and I haven't installed my photo editing software yet. BUT, here's what I did with Paint.

Are the goatees done for? Anyway, my new one is Dave Chappelle as Samuel Jackson. :D

03-28-2004, 07:57 PM
:beard: of any form (goatee, chin starp, fu man chu) will never be done for. BTW nice new tar MrJabbajohnL

03-29-2004, 05:09 PM
I'm not having any problems with my tar, as KH says (in fact I just updated:beard: ), but Darth Zirocks tar is coming up (for me) as a red X, like the pic wouldn't load. I thought I'd throw that out there.

Do you know how hard it is for a one-hundred-and-sixty-two-year-old man to keep his facial hair from falling out??? ;)

Oh, and Darthzirock's avatar is an error because he apparently never re-uploaded it after the move that caused the issue this very thread is referring to.
