Where do you think the name 'pistol shrimp' came from?

well, yes. It's based on THAT mario. I started using this user name since 7th grade or so, and still use it for everything. Not that I play vasts amounts of Mario games anymore.

With great difficulty, it ain't easy. You could ask one of the local image gurus for help.

A lot of people just host the images off-site.

For the animated stuff, I leave the hard stuff to someone else, and then put the image on photobucket.

For anything else, I use MSPaint, GIMP, or one of the myriad of other image editors out there to crop and size the avatar to 100x100, and then host it offsite (usually photobucket; sometimes I go crazy and put it on picasa). If you can get it under 6kbytes, you can upload it to the board, but that's usually not feasible unless you make it a 2-color still gif and then compress the crap out of it.

Yo. I'm Koyote. I live in Michigan. I am a freelance graphic designer and I work for the Red Cross. My first computer was a Commodore 64, so this site makes me warm and squishy.

Warmth and squishiness quotas come under section 14.7.9 of the terms of use; you might want to go back and check over those to ensure you don't need an imports license.

On an unrelated note, may your stay here be plentifully entertaining, and don't touch anything. For your own personal safety.

Also the rotten fruit in the corner over there is warm and squishy. It might be an idea to check for that as well :D

Hello!

My name is Elcarsh, and I'm an altoholic.

I'm also from Sweden, have two cats and like music, standup comedy, culture, family life, and the extermination of all other lifeforms.

I do my utmost to be hilarious in all things I do, and if I can subtly annoy at least one person each day, I feel I have accomplished something worthwhile.
