Avatars, Avatars, Avatars!!!

Yes, your favorite subject, Matty.

How about *selling* avatars? Say for $20, you get to pick whatever avatar you want (as long as its appropriate)? It would give people who really hate the blue hats (or Chad Morton) the opportunity to change it, but also help you (and the site) out financially, too.

Just an idea.

Sorry if it has already been suggested.

Interesting... I'm all for that idea. I DO love that idea. It's kind of like fat chicks.

They need love too...... they just gotta pay. - Quagmire

Re: Avatars, Avatars, Avatars!!!

I think it's fine as is, but if everyone else wants to change things then here's what I think. I think Matty selects the Avatars and if someone wants an avatar different than the one assigned to them (based on their posts) then they have to pay for it. But they can only select from the list given to them.

So let's say you're a camp scrub and you want a 1st round pick avatar you chip in $15, you want playmaker status you pay $20. Something along those lines.

Re: Avatars, Avatars, Avatars!!!

I just wanted something a little more personal. Not a huge departure from what we have now, just a little more "Malcolm". But, I'm not a person to complain, but if there was an option, I'd use it.

I hope they dont change, that you earn your place. There will obviously be a need to adjust the levels as before long, everyone will have earned Gibbs' status. It's a tough task for Matty, who will constantly, have to hear us gripe as things change and we get dropped down to Ladell Betts and the likes.

Everyone, leave the mod's alone, and be happy that we have a venue to express our distaste with one another.

Re: Avatars, Avatars, Avatars!!!

the only changes that i wouldn't mind seeing is get rid of the avatars of players who aren't on the skins.

Re: Avatars, Avatars, Avatars!!!

I think you guys are completely missing the point of my original post. I agree with you on that I get tired of hearing the complaining about the avatars. This idea is meant to help out both us AND Matty. If someone doesn't like their avatar, then pay for an 'upgrade'. This should knock out a point of contention. On top of that, it will generate a bit more revenue for the site.

So why is it that you guys don't like this idea?
