AVITAR EXPERIMENTS.

I have recently noticed several posts about having fun with the image icons.
I have a suggestion. Since we do not know when 2.0 version will be operable, and if it will or will not include any graphic options, how about making small puzzle with our personal icons for other people. For example, place pictures of georaphic locations or architectural structures and have other people name these features. Just an idea, in any way, have fun.

Simon.

That's a good idea. A lot of the time though, I can't see the pic well enough w/out enlarging it.

I do a lot of cropping and digital touchup to some of mine, and keep in mind how small it's going to be. Sometimes a picture works great, sometimes, not so much.

Good idea, Sblv, but I agree that the avatars are usually too small to see that clearly.

However, what if we take this a step further (and I'm not smart enough to know how to do this). Perhaps someone has a Web page where we could use something like Jigzone.com to take a photo from our home town (or our pets or whatever we'd like) and put a link on that Web page and then post the link in chat??

I do a jigsaw puzzle every day from Jigzone (and sometimes more). Wouldn't want to go more than 85 pieces probably, because that would discourage people possibly.

I would love to solve a jigsaw puzzle from Dyenamite's Australia or Eesusbejesus' back yard or Texlewee's hometown. Little scared to mention what Smaug might put up! I know Nellie has an abundance of animals to photograph.

So it wouldn't be a guessing game of figuring out the puzzle and naming the place, but instead of putting together a jigsaw puzzle of something submitted by members.

I know what I'm talking about. Does anyone else understand me?

If you want my backyard, could you cue the Sanford & Son theme song? Scott has snowmobiles in various pieces out back. But if you look just beyond that, its very pretty.

LMAO, Lodi...We should get Dave and Scott together...

I call Dave's truck the Sanford Mobile and loudly squak out the S and Son Theme when he gets in...

Okay, Simon, I've got one for you. What architectural structure is my icon, and what is it's significance?

That's what is otherwise known to local folks as the "big disco ball in the sky", folks from Tennessee are known to dawn bellbottoms, disco shoes, shirts with butterfly collars, and mullets whenever they are in it's presence. A small speaker located beneath the ball plays Begee music 24 hours a day. Only in Tennessee.

Wow, Jeremy, you called it. You did forget that this is TN, so in addition our disco outfits, and to compliment our mullets, we often wear overalls and chew on long pieces of straw whilst dancing.

I did forget I apologize. I had to do a report on this for school. The locals see this as a combination between between old school tradition and new school revivalism. Many in Tennessee have just discovered this "new" trend of disco dancing, and erected a disco ball in order to revitalize what many see as a lagging tourist industry. Tennessee now sees itself as a rival of Paris, at the height of fashion of contemporary trends. I, for one, would heartily agree with that opinion. The combination between backwater hillbillyism and disco dancing is ingenius.

oh but Paris IS in Tennessee---

"Paris is a city in Henry County, Tennessee, 86 miles (138 km) west of Nashville, on a fork of the West Sandy River. In 1900, 2,018 people lived in Paris, Tennessee; in 1910, 3,881; and in 1940, 6,395.As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 9,763. It is the county seat of Henry CountyGR6.

A 60 ft. tall replica of the Eiffel Tower stands in a park in Paris.

Paris is also home of the "World's Biggest Fish Fry"." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris,_Tennessee)

we are cultured in TN. we just don't want to give the rest of the world a complex, so we don't flaunt it.

All are welcome, Jo, but I would be remiss not to warn you to look up exactly what scrapple and chit'lins are before taking that first bite. The worst for me, though is sweet tea.

I have looked at your profile before, you are a World traveler!
I could see Rio de Janeiro (I do not know the name of the place though), Iguazu falls and Machu Picchu, but what about the aligator?

I don't like how when you change your avatar, it changes the image on all your past posts too. I can't even look back and enjoy the various incarnations of Smoke.
