SirWill, I'm really happy for you, and I'ma let you finish, but Caddywumpus has the best avatar of all time. OF ALL TIME!!!

I'm offended! I'm mean, c'mon...FOURTH???? I should've at least broken the top 3...

Thanks man. Mine's actually Pickles, the drummer for Dethklok on Cartoon Network's Metalocalypse. Drinking a beer. Personally, I'm a fan of Gruntersdad, hubba hubba hubba!!!

And my Seasonal Tampa Bucs Cheerleaders get no mention at all. I demand a recount. They are certainly better looking than Karl. No offense my friend.

They get my vote GD......I just wish your football season was longer!! They are right up there with Karl Crafton's red sparkle Luddies....a wealth of eye candy!

Haha - me too! Those pics, at least with Bernhard shown from a distance, bear a striking resemblance.

Glad everyone is getting some fun laughs at this funny thread.

Re: Drummerworld Avatars (Top ten)
 
Although a slightly predictable response from me, I was disappointed that Gruntersdad's flesh fest didn't get a placing. As a flip side to this, I think my avatar should be in the top 10 crap avatar's section. A picture of your own drum kit. I mean, come on, how sad is that! Thanks for the post sirwill. You've given me the kick up the %$ I needed to spur me on to get a replacement avatar.

There, done it. That's better!

Ha! Thanks! It fits, I have no idea how to shut up or keep my thoughts to myself. The colors match the forum, too.

I like Polly's honorable mentions - all great. KIS has a great new one, too!

I was always partial to Therma Lobstadore's "Ren & Stimpy" avatar. His name is my favorite on here, too.

Yes, of course you do! My picture / avatar was just plain lazy and lacking imagination. Yours is almost poetic in an arty sort of way. I'd go as far as to say "romantic". Whoops, I may have just advocated drum love!

I was shamed into replacing it. Glad I did though. With you on Therma's name. A close contest with DMC!

Very clever use of the female symbol, looks good from a design standpoint, and is cute and cool at the same time.

If there were only some fog on the water.

I too would give the sheila from Oz major props.

Thanks guys, 'tho I'd do better on this thread if I just had a shot of my cleavage :)

There are some nice greyscale avatars around too:

http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/i...ine=1253762132 - Yamahammer - I never quite made sense of this but it's striking. A bad hair day? :)

Well done, KIS, you've really lifted your game :)

And I dare you guys to have an avatar with you in tight leather rockstar pants with the obligatory goodies from the greengrocer (or gym socks). But on this forum we (ie. most of us) love each other for our minds, not our bodies :)

Damn, I just scrolled down to see if I'd missed anything and almost swatted my screen as I passed my last post!

Anyone know why my "Photobucket" pics wont post?.
I'm pretty sure I am typing the long URLs in correctly and I've tried different pics, tried to re size them...etc. All I keep getting is "Invalid URL" !.
I dont have 'Microsoft Word". Is that why ?.
Does my "Drummerworld" account not allow it ?.
This shouldnt be this difficult !.

I hope the females here on the forum aren't offended. My avatar is really my new soon-to-be-ex-wife. We've known each other for years, so no, I didn't find a random girl shot and put it up. She's an actual person to me!

The "soon to be ex" honoured via an Avatar on Drummerworld.....that's a new one Bo. Normally such pics are subject to a ceremonial burning aren't they?

Well, the soon-to-be-ex part isn't up to me. That girl is a man magnet. I'm lucky to have lunch with her every other half-year or so....

Thanks Fuo, but I have downloaded all my images into my computer but I cant find them to upload them. I looked in my pictures and documents sections, and still nothing. Even if I did find them, I probably couldnt figure out how to load from there to here.
I need some pretty detailed instructions. Im kinda of a computer Newb to a degree.

I can't give EXACT instructions 'cause I dont' know what browser or OS you're using...

I'm on Windows/Firefox, so I'd do:

- Right click the image (like in your post above).
- Click Save Image As...
- Change to a directory/folder that you'll remember (like My Documents\My Pictures), then hit Save.
- Click the User CP link in drummerworld.
- Goto Edit Profile Image.
- Hit the Browse button (under "Option 2")
- Change to the folder you saved the image to
- Double click the image
- Hit the Save Changes button
