    Ooh... I've never seen this old thread, but it looks like fun.

    Here is my original TOL avatar. (actually, I had a smaller version at first.)

    Here's my first "new" avatar, from when we were on a Mario theme.

    Here's an alternate Wario avatar. I was planning on switching to this one after a week or two, but we switched to a superhero theme before I got around to it.

    I've got another Transformers avatar ready to go, and I'm working on a fancy new Spidey one. The Spider-Man one is animated, so it will be tough to get it within the filesize limit.

    My avatar is the same one I started with. I've had a few others but not many.

    Why are they called avatars anyways???

    Webster's define avatars as....

    Hinduism a god appearing on earth in bodily form; incarnation of a god


    If the word "avatar" is rooted in hinduism, what the heck is it doing being used at a Christian forum? I realize that's what they are called at all the other forums, is there anything else we could call them that's not so hinduish?

    I suppose "icon" would work, but it has some of the same problems associated with "avatar."

    Despite its origin, "avatar" seems to have taken on a distinctive "tech jargon" meaning.

    Some of the other definitions are not specifically tied to Hinduism.
