    What is wrong with you guys?

    What is there not to like about custom avatars?
    Show a bit individuality and creativity! This is not communism, you fascists!

    As long as no animated avatars are allowed, I can cope with pretty much anything.

    (It would still be cool if we could access the old archives more directly though)

    My current av is so fucking good, i may end up switching back to the old jefferson concept art once the novelty wears off though.

    Any wannabe artist can tell you that creativity loves constraint.

    You can't really be "creative" if you have to select from a list, though.

    The creativity lies in what you make with the selection of avatars you are offered.
    Think of all the "You are not Melcar" posts. And Andyman being a horse.

    As far as I'm concerned, I chose my av from one of my first cRPG. I searched for a representation of what I am. I found a bearded and balding old man with a joyous look. Because that's how I want to be seen. Just putting my pic would have been easier for sure. But not creative.

    Except after 3 or 4 years of the same fucking avatars, it gets boring.

    A 2008 newfag would feel that way, yes. I tell you, in my days we didn't have none of these fancy "custom avatars". No anime, either. No sir, you had ten or twenty galleries to chose from and woe betide you if you picked one someone already claimed.

    I'll only agree with this proposal if it also includes the elimination of all anime avatars from the gallery.

    And fixing the character 2d sprites to not look weird under the only 1:1 ratio limitation for avatar image sizes as well.

    if you didn't want anime avatars, you should have donated more towards not having them. stop whining and deal with it.

    What kind of logic is that?
    "If people didn't want a rule under Kim Jong Un they'd have donated more towards the United Nations to get a military intervention."

    Unlike certain people, I'm not a cretin whose money can be easily swayed through the most cheap methods. I'd never pay because of something as stupid as what will and will not be avatars in an Internet forums. For that is worse than paying for horse armor DLC. I just made that comment to point out why this thread is so full of fail.

    Custom avatars need not necessarily be detrimental to the glory and prestige of the Codex. Imagine, for example, If more users were to embrace the higher cause of the monocle. Rather than becoming an obstacle, I would wager that distinguished faces such as the ones below would serve only to reinforce the superior image of this blessed Order.

    Bring back the old avatars. I just can't imagine that I will be able to pull off a monocle avatar.

    Your entire av's a monocle. All that's missing is a fancy chain.

    I tried shopping one onto mine, but it didn't work out so well. Maybe it's time for a change.
