Just a little thought. We dont have many options for avatars for selection in that part of the Profile. I know that most users use Custom avatars but it seems that all the new people have the same avatar, aswell as it may attract a couple of people. Including some people who arent computer literate to find something they like...

Just a thought. Wondering Your Opinions :)

We currently have 221 avatars on the site- although they havent been updated for a while, so we coukd probably do with some new games.

If people have the links, then we can add them. WOuld be good to get a collection for each game ;)

Mine is actually a screenshot adapted to a wallpaper. I then shrunk it down to an appropriate size. Check this site out, you can shrink pictures and compress the file size there. http://www.shrinkpictures.com

Not added Madden as they are similar to last years and Halo Wars because they suck :p

Any more recommendations?

How about a Gears of War set? I think these would be good additions:

i think the gears would be a nice touch, cuz i only did a a custom cuz i like and i didnt think the avatars had much to offer. and i really wish i knew there was a site for compressing pics cuz it took me like an hour to get a right sized pic off google, lol

Yeah, hopefully the GoW will be added soon... (haven't checked to see if they already are)

Webb, I'll tell you what, since I'm in a good mood tonight, I'll wait two days to see if they're up before I start PMing. :D

And as soon as I submit this post I'm going to send you a PM (nothing to do with avatars) that might end up being some important info someday.

another thing kinda off topic, i keep hearing of getting a pic for beating all insane levels in gears, i have all of them and im pretty sure i dont got it, is it a myth?

Nope, it's not a myth. You get this picture:

I've read of alot of people saying that they're not getting it, but it is there. Try looking under your gamerpics in the middle of the list. I don't know why but every person that I know that has gotten it, it for some reason gets put in the middle of the list of gamerpics.
