      Here is one for Bob and the rest of us OTF beer drinkers. I do not think that Chimay is an automotive product company logo or club logo. If you decide not to post this one for public use, at least let Bob have it. He is a moderator, and (given yours and Brad's avatars) it would appear that the mods do not have to follow the rules.

      P.S.: I love the clean look of the site. That is why I'm pointing out the double standard of allowing mods to have custom avatars.

      Chris's avatar identifies him as SS Forum Staff. The lawn chair avatar i had was a moderator only selectable avatar, which i just removed.

      Moderators do not have the ability to upload custom avatars. Obviously moderators are inclined to follow the same rules are the rest of the members here.

      As for the avatar you selected, lets please keep them automotive related.

      Chris, I had this as my Avatar at another site, and I'd sure love to have it back here.

      haha - hmm, not sure we'll go with animated avatars but I'll see if there is some potential interest/acceptance from leadership.

      I just joined the forums and since I'm waiting on my S60 to show up, I noticed that there isn't much (or any) avatar love for the new S60. I quickly made a couple of S60 avatars so maybe we could add them for the new S60 lovers out there?

      Unfortunately summer arrived in Houston about 3 months ago and it's been unbearably hot since it did. God I hate Houston.

      So how often to avatars get updated around here?

      There is an issue with the forum software in the Admin section. We are working with our host to resolve. As soon as this is fixed I have a few Polestar C30 avatars to upload as well.

      Can we have coloured avatars? Cartoon characters and personality based images. Come on folks, have a sense of humour.

      Club and company logos are restrictive to conversation. As they are in the threads and on top of the page. I don't mind the scrolling ads though.

      Choosing our own custom and uploaded avatars would bring life to the forum. It needs it.

      Got the software working and we can upload avatars. The Ata-moose is up. I'll be working on some 2014 refresh avatars.
