Scary Avatar??????????????

Ok, I just got an email from VEXROCKS asking me to take down my avatar because it is “scary”. I am not going to take it down, but I thought I would ask what you guys thought about my avatar. So what do you think?

scary as in wierd yes, but not like go cry in a corner scary :smiley:

it looks kind of like general ackbar from star wars

but i do like your old avatar better

It is General Ackbar.

You really liked my old “Peace Through Superior Firepower” avatar?? I thought it might offend people, but that is part of the reason I put it up.:wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:

lol is that from the digitally restored version? i only have the old version of the trilogy so he looks kind of different

As a huge Star Wars fan, I’m in favor of keeping the Admiral Ackbar avatar.


PS - It’s a trap.

Dude, that’s pretty awesome. I just googled my Avatar :stuck_out_tongue:

Nazionale italiana di Calcio

I am not aginst it:) I just think it does not realy fit on the vexforum…
but seeing that evryone likes it forget about what I said
I think I can keep myself from going and crying in a corner:p :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue: :stuck_out_tongue:

i voted no too;)

lol and yours does :wink:

I liked “Peace Through Superior Firepower” (e.g. The Best Defense is a Strong Offense), but I also am Sensitive to how others might feel about such messages… More Neutral types of Messages might seem less “combative” and “distracting”.

I just found a Quote, attributed to “Eleanor Roosevelt
A mature person is one who is does not think only in absolutes, who is able to be objective even when deeply stirred emotionally, who has learned that there is both good and bad in all people and all things, and who walks humbly and deals charitably

I would say that covers a lot of it

P.S. I found this quote too, “Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people”, which reminds me, how is Britney doing??? :wink:

you know what? i completely agree, i hate the whole idea of celebrities, just because they live in their mansion and have starred in movies, and marry and divorce between a three week, involved with drugs and other sinful activity doesnt mean they’re better than anybody else

and it is a total pet peeve of mine that ppl are obssesed with celebrities OMG!! did you see that new dress Britnet spears had on!? wow, i completely dont care</my response>

That is a pretty good quote. It pretty much includes all vex builders. I hate the idea of celebs also. I find it completly pointless. Who really cares!?

Because for you (like myself and the other Vex Builders) we find Ideas the most interesting, and then maybe a few Events… People are only interesting what they contribute to Ideas, or maybe Events. “celebs” don’t usually have much of a “contribution” to Ideas… For the most part, I have more respect for Musicians (of any sort) than Actors.

I am routinely blown away by the “stream of conciousness” nature of this forum.

How exactly did you go from talking about an Admiral Ackbar avatar to talking about celebrities?

Maybe we should try to do a slightly better job of staying on topic, even in the chit-chat forum. If you’d like to talk about a topic different from the subject of the thread, start a new thread.


I’m not offended by it. But, yeah someone start a poll on who is your least favorite celeb.

lol :smiley: that does happen a lot, its happening again right now

Mea culpa… One good thought led to another… Sometimes at “gatherings”, the conversation will flow from one topic to another…

I will do better next time…
