I'm searching for an avatar that represents "me"
There are a few people on here whose avatar represents them perfectly and should never be changed. People with the kind of avatars you see and you recognize as them immediately, and not just because it's unique, but because it represents that person perfectly. What is it that makes this true?

Well, mine is my favorite character. So I guess people's avatars show their interests

I would say that my avatar does NOT resemble the kind of person I am...
I do NOT scare small children...I actually have a pretty distinct sense of humor!

I'm working on a game that's coming out soon!

Well, I think mine reflects my avatar name pretty darn well. Also, like me, it's a bit old school, retro-futuristic, and mysterious.

Someone needs to explain to me the secret of the crisp avatar. I've tried uploading 80x80 versions, 60x60 versions of JPGs and GIFs (to make them a smaller filesize) but always they look crisp and clear on my Edit Profile page and fuzzy and distorted on the forums. How it appears on the forums is on the left; how it appears on my profile is on the right:

It usually has to have my face on it, pulling a stupid face if possible. Without those two things, even I'd ignore my posts.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Well, I think you can tell from my posts that I like to carry around a plank of wood while searching for my lost son, so it seemed appropriate to choose Flint.

Come on, friends,
