    The Dude for ytzk is good, but I think a picture were he doesn't look so smug might be more fitting.

    As for a sun for smuel: Sure, his morning extravaganza is more or less his trademark. As for the title, something related to "Morning Glory" or "Top of the morning" could work.

    Re:

    I changed my mind. While that would be the orderly way of doing things, I don't feel like creating four additional threads.

    Besides. It's Thursday.

    I have no strong opinions one way or another on this.

    Which, by itself, is likely a vote in the no category since if there were strong indications I'd feel more compelled. But you have to consider my hatred of all change, which includes avatar pictures. It probably comes out even.

    I have no suggestions for avatar pics.

    And no, I don't know why I even bothered to post either.

    I vote yay to Yuki, nay to the others because I can only tolerate so much change at one time and I'm permitting tenure to be my deciding factor.

    I don't think the picture of The Dude is too smug for Yuki but I do think it would be better if it were attached to a meme like Zanza's was.

    I like the idea of morning glory being a part of smuel's theme, but when his time comes, I think "Morning Glory Hole" would be appropriately offensive in true, terra-arcanum fashion.

    The White Knight moves for the girl, eh? Surprising!

    I, for one, think that the lot except for jojobobo should recieve avatars and titles fitting for their station. Ytzk, Yuki and Smuel are ready, but I'm just not sure about jojobobo. I mean, who is he, really?

    To clarify:
    Yuki - Aye
    Ytzk - Aye
    Smuel - Aye
    Jojobobo - Nay

    Jojobobo could very well take my title, but where would that leave me?

    I'm surprised. I had expected a veritable torrent of azn pics by now.

    Aznified Dude photoshop shenanigans?

    As it stands right now, the votes are as follows:

    Yuki: 5 Aye, 3 Nay = approved for custom
    Ytzk 4 Aye, 4 Nay = not approved for custom
    Smuel 3 Aye, 4 Nay = not approved for custom
    Jojobobo 3 Aye, 4 Nay = not approved for custom

    Unless anybody else has something to say, Yuki is hereby approved for a custom avatar. And to the rest of you I say; your time will come.

    Well my sense of self-worth did depend solely on getting an avatar on this forum, so I have to say I am grievously upset.

    I understand completely. Being bestowed an avatar at HoL is, after all, perhaps THE greatest honor one can recieve in life.

    Also, you shouldn't be in this thread. Whelp.

    Getting a custom is quite the transition. To be honets, I no longer remember how it's like not to be able to fly or shoot lasers out of my eyes.

    I vote blank on Yuki. Nay on all other counts.

    In general I'm also opposed to batch proposals. It diminishes the value of the honor of the bestowal, and it makes it hard to have a good discussion. Also this is not a democracy, there has never been a culture for voting. Whether someone gets an avatar or not depends on consensus and administratorial whims. And most importantly customs are never granted until a consensus has been attained for a specific avatar. Therefore the whole voting process before there has been any proper suggestions is meaningless. If no fitting avatar can be found there will be no avatar no matter what the vote says.

    Well if I'm not getting one anyway, scuppering my chances by posting isn't really an issue. And I suppose you're right, what amounts to a vanity plate to prove I'm a forumite of quality is probably something that deep, deep, deep down I desperately crave.

    Now that I've made my arbitrary defiant comment and assuaged the severe injury to my ego, you may continue debating Yuki's avatar.

    Re:

    My shame in agreeing with Aurdal is only helped by pointing out the hypocrisy in voting in one paragraph while denouncing voting entirely in the next.

    Stream on consciousness posting is really the only way to do it. I mean, who wouldn't want to do it? Commies, that's who. Stupid commies. I'm hungry. You know what I could go for? A sandwich. With some really sharp cheddar on it. Wait, what were we talking about again? Penis.

    Its true we don't pay attention to votes all that often but Japes gets to make vote threads are part of his military veteran benefits.

    He also gets to complain about people these days and board aeroplanes first.

    Not so, the latter. That privilege seems to be reserved for the wealthy and the infirm. However, I do get to wear highly unfashionable hats and blame any future wrongdoing on PTSD.

    Or you could give some custom avatar to me for no reason.
