You've asked for them -- now you've got them!

As a thank-you for helping us weather the server move, almost 200 brand new avatars are now available at all the different member terraces in GateWorld Forum. New avatars are in all of the categories. Also, a "Misc" section has been added!

Go check it out, and enjoy!

David, Darren and your friendly GateWorld team.

Soooo many new avatars soooo little time! Thanks David they're great! :D Makes me wish I could display more then one. :o

Wow!!! You did an awesome job, David! You must really like us! :D

When I saw "McKay's Cat" I laughed. It would be funny if the Cat was in the "Allies" section. :P That's great! :D

Great job. I can practically feel the massive switchovers as people snatch up the new avs.

There's at least one glaring oversight, but you chose not to heed my warnings about it, so I guess we'll sit back and see if it causes any outrage or not. :)

Spiffy.

*points and laughs at all those limited by the Gateworld Avatars*

Kidding, kidding.

Those are really cool avatars, but I prefer to stick with my Wesley avatar for the moment....

Really cool though :)

But why, oh why did you have the put it as 'RepliCarter'??

seriously, though! great job on all those avs!!! :)

Because Replicator Carter is two words and that would've caused the HTML to flip out even more, flopping even more pictures all over the place. Take a look at the avatars with two rows of text. Very strange looking. We're fastidious about those sorts of things.

Most of these avatars have been accumulating on my hard drive for about six months. Only recently did I get my butt in gear and start composing them into something that resembled avatar classifications.

David,

I love the look of the new avatars but when I tried to change mine after I selected the new avatar then clicked on save changes I get the following message; POST requests from foreign hosts are not allowed. Any idea what the problem might be?

Thought to go and choose a new Sheppard avator :-)

I particularly like that avatar. Good color palette. My Dad has the same pair of glasses -- my Dad is also a helicopter pilot like Sheppard is! :D

There are Asgard avatars once your post count goes up it will unlock new avatars.

I think I got hold of one of the new avatars without even realizing it was new. Thanks, and thanks also for making some of them available to newbies like me. :)

Thanks for adding the new Avatars, they're all amazing! :D ;)

Also is there any chance you could change "Davis" to "Harriman" ? ;)

Well unless they are concealing a stargate in St. Louis, I don't think so. But he is gone for considerable periods of time.

Thanks for the new avatars, David!! :D

Although I ended up selecting one just as ambiguous as my last one...:rolleyes:
I am still very grateful to have more choices than you can shake a stick at! :p

The Wraith from The Defiant One should be labelled as Greg :P

David

It's our mission to make this place feel as Stargatey as possible. That's what makes it fun!!

He was called Greg?

Purpleyin
April 10th, 2005, 05:35 PM
Wow. So many new av's and some wonderful ones - spoilt for choice. I love that there are now plenty of SGa ones and lots of secondary characters for it - there's 2 Grodin ones and Bates and Heightmeyer - I love you guys. Thanks for the great work :)

There is one thing though, how come no new McKay ones :( He's my favourite character but I've never been a fan of the S1 promo shots that much for him and both his av's at my current level atleast seem pretty much the same and both promo ones; no episode av's for him, which is a shame considering Weir etc have very nice bonus av's. :)

David
April 10th, 2005, 05:55 PM
Room to grow on! :)

Aris Boch

When do you think we'll get a Cameron Mitchell one?

Anubis
April 11th, 2005, 03:46 AM

There is a Mitchell one in the avatar gallery under Bonus Main Characters -- though I'm guessing you need a higher post count to access THAT one. ;)

Immy

I'll say - McKay's cat but not Weir's dog?? The dog fans are going to be outraged. :eek:

The new avatars are wonderful - I really love some of the "beauty shots" of Atlantis and the wormhole effects. Thanks.

oh! i'm finally ready to take a human host!!

my favorite avatars now have to be the shot of atlantis, the wraith-in-your-face, the kull warrior, and , well, there are too many to decide.

lionel_pendergast_rocks
April 11th, 2005, 01:46 PM
and another thing....

i think it would be cool to have a 'Starships' section to the Avatar function. you could have pj's, darts, al'kesh, gliders, the prommie, a 302, a ha'tak, and all sorts of others.



and just why isn't there a lionel pendergast under Tau'ri!!???!?!?!?!

David
April 11th, 2005, 02:36 PM
There is a 'ships' section with all of those included (I'm using one of them now). As to Pendergast, I'm sorry I missed him and will try to get him in there in the next batch.

CKO
April 11th, 2005, 04:22 PM
is there another bonus level then (for the ships) cuz they dont show up for me :(

David
April 11th, 2005, 04:26 PM
Yes. You should be seeing them soon.

CKO
April 11th, 2005, 04:29 PM
thanxz ;) my guess is there are bonus piccys at 800 posts and then again at 1800 posts

alz0rz
April 11th, 2005, 04:56 PM
Bahh I still can't decide its the Wraith or the kull warrior .. or the atlantis shot .. or ugh.. to many to decide...

btw, thx Wass your rep pushed me into a new dimension of green circles.. i now have light green ones.. YAY :)

In Marty's sick, twisted little world, yes. ;)

Sounds like an interesting idea, although that'd probably be quadruple the workload having to sift through all the submissions and then trying to come up with some fair way of judging them- this pic of Console Guy is kinda blurry, but this perfectly captured image of Ford's boot is a bit pointless as a subject. Stuff like that. Plus what if four people choose the same image to capture and they all look more or less alike? How do you decide which is BEST? And how do you explain to the losers why theirs wasn't good enough?

Nah, it's easier to just continue pestering David with all our requests. :D He LOVES being harrassed, ya know. ;)

Angelique
April 12th, 2005, 03:48 AM

ShadowMaat

I wanna know why there are EIGHT puddle jumper avs- more than any other kind of ship. Sounds like a compensation issue to me. :P

lionel_pendergast_rocks
April 12th, 2005, 08:37 AM
do you only see the 'ships' section only if you have a higher post count than me? do you have to have like 1800?

Angelique
April 12th, 2005, 10:17 AM
I think there's another level at 1800. :rolleyes: That'll take a while to get to. :S

Shame it'd be too difficult to do a contest and I guess open voting wouldn't hep (incase people did pick Ford's boot for example :)). But it'd be good if David did accept submissions, if they were on first person submits a avatar and no assurances they'd be used as well as people having to accept that they wouldn't get an explanation of why it wasn't used if so. But even then I guess it'd be too hard. Oh well, be nice when I get to the custom av level but for now there are lots of very very great ones to keep me happy.

emily_reich
April 12th, 2005, 02:17 PM
well over at trekbbs we have lots of avatar contests where we pick a catagory for the week, people who wanna all enter one av each, and then there's a seperate poll thread where everyone votes for their favorite.... we could do something like that here, only with the winning one or two becoming official avs :D :D

but that's the only thing i can think of! :p

Patience. :P It isn't that huge a deal, anyway. The important thing is to enjoy the conversations around you, not worry over some silly little image (no offense, David). I think I went a few days before I realized that there WERE more pics. And then a few days after that before I noticed the "upload your own" option. ;) I'm not one of the most observant people, y'know.

Any particular reason we can't have custom avatars?

ShadowMaat
April 18th, 2005, 01:55 AM
Because you've only made 57 posts and haven't earned the privilege to do custom avs yet. That's for people at a higher user level (read: higher post count). It's a way of saying "thank you for participating in the forum and for sticking with us through these many posts." :)

ShadowMaat
April 19th, 2005, 08:02 PM
See, the problem with questions like, "How many posts until..." always make me wary. I can't help feeling that if I give an answer, someone (or usually multiple someones) will then proceed to spam the board four ways till Sunday until they get what they want. This isn't just av related, but anything that's post count relevant.

There is a Vala av, you'll get it eventually.

There are Asgard avs, you'll get them eventually.

There are (space) ship avs, you'll get them eventually.

Gateworld forums is supposed to be a place to come and have fun and discuss the show. The avs and user levels and whatnot are just fun extras and the additional privileges are, as I said, a way of saying thanks to longtime posters. This place is NOT supposed to be about trying to GET those additional perks. It isn't supposed to be about "I still have to make X number of posts before I can do Z." JUST POST. Have fun. Discuss the bloody shows! You'll get the extras when you get there.

Like the saying goes- stop worrying about your post count and just make your posts count!

A quick question on avatars- at the lower levels of avatardom *waves upward* we seem to have the main cast of sg1 and Atlantis- will Beau Bridges, Ben Browder, Lexa Doig, Mitch Pillegi and whoever else I've missed be added to that group when they are no longer spoiler material or are they considered "you must have 3 million posts to get them" rewards? :D

Some of your answers lie earlier in this thread's pages.There is a Mitchell/Ben avatar available,but for the other new cast members,I haven't a clue !

Just an idea : Create a non-spoilery sig & pic of the characters you want.That way,no chasing of post counts is required at all.....and you can focus on other good stuff. :cool:

(Can't hurt to check your control panel under "Edit Avatar" now and then though,as & when the title under your user name changes... ;) )

You'll get there eventually. Today, tomorrow, next week, next month, next YEAR, EVENTUALLY you'll get there, and even if you DID know the number (which lies in plenty of threads on the board) it wouldn't actually GET you there. :rolleyes:

Thanks F.H. Bagpuss!
However the thing is um he's not available at a mere 100 posts(that I can see) when the rest of SG1's main characters are. So just wondered if he was going to be kept back from us down here in the lower postal eschelons for any specific reason when the rest of SG1 aren't?(Just seems a tad unfair to exclude him!) :D

Bagpuss
April 21st, 2005, 02:39 PM
I see what you mean,but S9 hasn't started yet,so perhaps the new characters may be added into the lower av choices, later this year ? :)
(For starters,there's not much in the way of promo S9 pics available yet !)

Kalliope : Recheck your current avatar choices ?
