The image size limit has been raised to 1mb! Anything larger than that should be linked to. This is a HARD limit, please do not abuse it.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Design Geth's Profile

StericaSterica Wow!That was shit.Registered User, Moderator mod
In case you missed, the Steam thread last holiday season raised over $5,000 for Child's Play in 2016. Incredible! Needless to say, every incentive was soundly beaten, and the thread earned the right to change up the profile of our local robot assistant, Geth. Back in early January I asked for people to submit their avatars, names, signatures, and headers for Geth, with plans for voting to occur before the end of the month.

I got zero submissions.

So I am going to open up submissions to the rest of the forum. You can use this thread to submit any of the aforementioned profile bits, and then we'll put them to a vote and pick the winners. When submitting, keep the following in mind
  1. One post per person, one submission for each of the four categories per post. You don't have to have a submission for each category, and if you suddenly get a get idea for a name or something then just edit it into your post.
  2. Everything must follow the standard rules for profile stuff. Signatures should obey size limits, names should be appropriate for the forum, etc.
  3. Name cannot already be in use. Use the handy at feature to see if your suggested name has been taken.
  4. A header is a background image that appears in every post. The majority of people don't have one, custom headers being an incentive for old donation drives. Keep it simple.
  5. Animated avatars MUST be exactly 80x80 pixels or they will not animate. Regular avatars can be larger, but remember that non-square avatars may look smaller to stay at 80px height or width (whichever is larger).
  6. Mod staff has the final say in what gets approved should the winners create a particularly garish or full of obnoxious profile that would be annoying to look at on a regular basis.
  7. Everything must be submitted by February 19th at 11:59pm EST.
  8. The winners will have their submissions as part of Geth's profile for four months, from March 1st until July 1st!

Have fun!

    On the one hand, neat.

    On the other... Geth is, like, Geth. Not sure what they could be replaced with. Some other cold, unfeeling machine, I guess?

    Although... I suppose Tunon, the Adjudicator would make for a good avatar of the soulless enforcement of the rules.

    (Also, I don't actually know how to use the handy at feature, so I don't know if that name's already been taken or not. Though I'm guessing not.)

    To use the Handy @ feature, type the @ symbol, followed by the proposed user name.
    For example, if I start typing @WotanAnubis your name shows up halfway through "Wotan", if the name pops up in the list, it's already taken. @Tunon, The Adjudicator does not pop up, so it's available for use.

    something based on the fruit fucker would be amusing i think

    you could call it the Thread Fucker, or maybe Forum Fucker. An avatar would be easy to find - just go with a fruit fucker pic, maybe slightly modified.

    Mod commands could go with the joke. Instead of being like "Geth close the thread" you could say "Threadfucker fuck the thread"

    Geth should be renamed Jeff. Jeff is a good name (not common enough to be blase, not rare enough to be weird, it's perfect), and it almost rhymes with Geth.

    As for an avatar/sig/header, I'll think of something later

    Geth's avatar should be life.

    attJ7uJ.gif

    I remember back in the day when we used to be able to remote link avatars, someone (@mcc?) had an avatar or sig that was a basic 64x64 game of life grid that anybody could freely edit. I wish I still had that script hanging around somewhere, but alas. It is very long gone.

    Also, Geth should be renamed to Slartibartfast.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.
