What do you all think about adding Avatars so that they'll go with your names on things like messages, etc.?

If there is an interest, I'll add the feature to the website.

As long as it doesn't slow down the load time on the site. It's not neccesarily something I'd be overly interested in, but they can be fun.

I think as long as I keep the avatars small, maybe at most 40x40 pixels, they shouldn't affect download too much.

Ditto here. Something small and well done would be a great addition to the site.

Okay. Man, that was more tedious than I thought. After much hacking, I finished enough code so that the avatar thing is functional.

There isn't too many avatars yet, but as I acquire more images, I'll add them.

I'm also thinking of letting you guys upload your own avatars. I'm dreaming up the code in my head as I write this.

The avatar size are currently set to 48x48 to keep it under 2K and are JPEG only. Maybe when this thing is working smoothly, I'll add support for the GIF format. It's just way too much work to do right now and I would rather spend that time fixing and adding other features to the site.

You can select your avatar by clicking on the "MY FIREFLY" menu option from the main menu.

As always, I welcome any suggestions.

You just gave me an idea. What do you think about having the ability to add your own little tagline under your name? So that "Just call me Badger" will appear under "Shuggie".

And Tieka suggested that everyone who wants their own Avatars can email me and I'll add them to the selections. I have no problem with that, so email away.

That would be cool.

But what's happening with the signature? You can enter one in your profile and there's an 'include signature with my post' option but I never see it.

The signature thing is one of the bugs I have to fix, so I'll probably do the tagline thing at the same time since I'm messing with the code.

No bugs there are. Features undocumented they are.

Since they don't show up yet, I can think of something incredibly fascinating and highly though provoking. Then when they do show up, I look like I know what I am saying.

Now to go think of something real quick.

Cool - I wasn't complaining - just checking you knew it was still an issue.

Appreciate all your efforts

Try the tagline thing.

But I didn't fix the sig yet, still working on that.

Excellent. It's like everytime I come back here there's some neat new feature.

Consider yourself patted on the back!

That's excellent.

Thanks for your continued work on this Haken - this is getting to be a great site.

Now if I can just find a cool pic for an avatar. I was toying with a couple that I have but I'm not sure I want something that's too Buffy-related.

It's okay if it's not Firefly related. Anything within the Whedon universe is a good range. I think the Avatar should reflect our personalities, so if you want one from Buffyverse, it's okay with me.

Oh sure - I didn't mean you'd object. It's me - I want something non-Buffy because this is not a Buffy spin-off.

I'll probably give in and go for something else - but I've got a coupla ideas I'm working on - just need to find/make the images.
