You Pick the Default Avatars

The avatar rule will be simple--personally identifiable. A picture of you, your car, one of your cars at a show shot by HCS, etc. Something that will help people connect your online persona with you in real-life. These can be animated gifs (I believe), so an animated avatar of a shot of a person, first car, second car, back to person should be possible. It's what I'm planning to do for my avatar.

Now, that being said, a good number of you probably won't have an avatar ready that can fit the requirements. For you, we want to have default avatars available. Austin took pictures of logos and emblems at one event (I believe it was a JF Drake show) and gave me the idea to use these for default avatars. So I started taking pictures of them too. But we have to find them as I've been shooting them for the better part of 2010 events.

So that's the assignment--go through the galleries in 2010 (and earlier if you wish), and find good pictures of logos/emblems, etc.

Post the image here using the 'Embeddable Links' under the 'Share' button so I know where it came from. We'll look at them and then add the best ones. Post anything you think would make a good avatar. But avoid particular cars as the owner might want to use it as their person avatar. Any questions?

If you're linking the embedded image from a gallery, I'll take care of sizing.

The default embed codes only embed up to small, but changing the 'S' to 'Ti' or 'Th' gives you a thumbnail-sized image.

And you wouldn't be able to post it if you did. Section 5.a.2 of the Huntsville Car Scene Terms of Service prohibits it.

You'll be able to upload a custom avatar like normal, so the top one would work since you have a vette.

What I'm trying to do is have a collection of default avatars from the HCS photo archives for those that don't want to search for one.

That would be pushing it since it's not a self-portrait.

When I shot this one, I thought you might like it. I need to shoot the same thing for your car and it would be perfect:

I must have read your mind somehow. I got a Z emblem today off the Datsun at Pineview.

And you'll be able to use anything that's ties your online persona to you like the shots of your car in your intro thread.

For your own avatar, you can make it. But it just has to be personally identifiable--a picture of you, your car, one of your cars at a show shot by HCS, etc. Something that will help people connect your online persona with you in real-life.

I'm just trying to have a good set of default avatars that people can choose from if they don't have a photo ready that's personally identifiable.
