    I honestly don't remember. I tried out a couple of black and white avatars years ago; that might be one I used here, but given its rectangular shape, I don't think so.

    I have to mention that some of the avatars I've used on my own forums were huge by CFC standards. I shamelessly indulged myself and others who liked large avatars, since we came from forums that only allowed small ones. So I've got avatars in my collection that are rectangular and quite large. There's one that I'm not sure I'd be allowed to post here... it's a bit risque (everything that's legally supposed to be covered is... barely).

    Anyway, here's my current TrekBBS avatar. I had to come up with something fairly quickly, that wasn't animated. This was the result. I've used it for several years now, and have thought about changing it but can't decide what to use instead.

    @Valka D'Ur, your lengthy avatar/RPG posts have at least brightened my days a bit! :cool:

    I never changed my avatar. Until I did. Now I don't feel like changing it again.

    My avatar is bound up with my whole identity and as such will not change. I've experimented with other space themed ones in the past but this one is the best.

    I would change my avatar but I haven't been able to draw a new one and I don't know if I ever be able to draw a new one.
