Title: Icons
Post by: Creed on September 01, 2004, 04:21:59 pm
I'm always curious about what people choose.  What made you choose your icon here?  (I'm eagerly anticipating the answer from Epic DJ Kailef...)

For me, my icon is the rune I've worn for years on a necklace.

Meh.  I found that Agent Smith avatar for Mushen over on the www.wowguild.com forums a few months back.  I liked it enough so I figured, heck, I'll use it here until I find something more fitting.  No special reason other than the fact that Agent Smith rules.  :-)

I haven't yet uploaded my avatar to a server. I design avatars  (and other graphics) so this tux thing is really only temporary ;D

Anyway, Linux rules, but I'm a newbie ;D

Uh, he was pretty cool, yeah.  But its not like he was invincible or anything... Neo blew him to bits in The Matrix, then ended his 'world domination' in Matrix: Revolutions.  Just saying, is all...  ::)

Agree with Vadim :D also I think that upload avatars/icon/pics from your PC will be a good resource.

anyyway, answering the question of Creed: My pic represents something I want, or something I like... if I can upload mi MSN display picture you will see my favorite animal  ;D

Opeth isn't power but it's death prog metal and it kicks ass.

NP: Opeth-  Death whispered a lullaby


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: Kailef on September 02, 2004, 10:14:09 am
(I'm gonna change my avatar icon soon)

I don't like Opeth.  I don't like growling vocals.  Music's great, but just like Children of Bodom, too growly.


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: Creed on September 02, 2004, 12:05:42 pm
Tell me, is it on par with After Forever, or even MORE growly?   :-[

Well they actually don't growl too much at all, I think it is the right amount. I know a lot of songs that they finish with growling and thats it.


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: Kailef on September 02, 2004, 04:09:21 pm
Both of them are more growly.  Actually, Children of Bodom only growls.

I'm just not really into harsh vocals at all.  Even Persuader is too much for me sometimes.


Title: Re: Icons

I second that, though the one song is not too bad, um.. The Godfather?  But the music is good.  It's just that.. well, after a childhood like mine, I don't care for feeling like someone's yelling at me..  ::)

I can't stand harsh vocals either. I loved CoB music but the vocals was too much for me :-/ I do listen sometimes. For me, till Tad Morose's I love! (I just got into them and I love Breed's vocals!). But growling is too much. I love Piet's and Kai's vocals ;D

I'll turn off the auto avatar resize until somebody starts to abuse it.   ;D

look at vadim's  ??? this thing is so uber big  ???

make the avatar like 20*20 or something :-/ lol (ok, let's just say max 100*100, and no automatic resize to that if < 100*100 ?)


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: atlantis on September 03, 2004, 09:23:19 pm
Yep. I used to have that problem with my old YaBB message board. Users' avatars alter the table sizes. Just for that reason, anyone wanting their avatar size (image size as well as file size) reduced and send them to my by mail and I'll fix them and make them globally forum-compatible. They'll be around 6kb to 12kb max with 80 x 80 size. My avatars work in all forums for being so small in size, in filesize and of course, conveying so much. So, there, a free service to all ERR board members! ;D


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: ivanCorea on September 04, 2004, 04:22:19 am
hmm, better leave the resize off, but ask the users to reduce their pic. or post a limit resolution that we will have to respect.
I wanna change my picture to a draw made by myself... but is bigger than 100*100 hehe.

Well lets see what happens


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: DeAtH_LeSS on September 04, 2004, 04:52:55 am

Post by: ivanCorea on September 04, 2004, 04:55:53 am
I've changed my avatar, hope is not too big. is another draw made bya myself :D hope you like it.
Sure the pic wil be bigger than every message I write but is the smallest size I can give without losing so much detail... maybe I should make a webGallery with all my draws and post a thread here lol  ;D

theres never been something like a war panda before. That creation is very original and should be made that best cartoon ever right now.

Thanks a lot!  ;D  I'm glad you like it. but as a matter of facts... there is someone who draw something like a war panda much before me... his name is Samwise Diddier and is the man who draws the last two covers of Hammerfall and the one of Joacim Cans. you can see excellent draws (mine are like a 3 years old child's draw compared to this ones) at www.sonsofthestorm.com

My avatar is easy to recognize heh, part of Iron Maiden's Powerslave cover. That's one of the best metal artworks ever.

Nile maybe? Well that's if you're into trash/death metal, though ;) But I dont know many bands with such a sound, I wish I did... Songs like Rainbow's Gates of Babylon or Dio's Egypt (the chains are on).


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: atlantis on September 05, 2004, 03:16:41 pm
Tad Morose!! "Modus Vivendi" (their new album) has an album opener called Anubis and WOW! It starts out with Egyptian sounds and later it goes on to great riffs and solos - still in egyptial scales! (Or so it sounds!). You can legally get this song for download, it's great! :D


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: DeAtH_LeSS on September 05, 2004, 03:20:39 pm
I am very open minded, and i like basically all types of music that have talent, dedication and (with metal mostly) sweet soloing. Any type of music with this "egyptian" sound would rock.


Title: Re: Icons
Post by: Valandryl on September 05, 2004, 03:26:10 pm
Then really try gates of babylon by Rainbow, oriental atmosphere, incredible solo (it's Ritchie Blackmore himself on the guitar...), terrific voice (RJ Dio on vocals...).

Well, this guy (Samwise Diddier) is the one who draws the Pandaren from WC3 ;D. He draws pandas that way much before than me... but it seems that he and me like pandas a lot.

If anyone want to see some of his stuff check www.sonsofthestorm.com oh, I promise that my gallery will be opened soon.  ;D just give me 2 weeks

Egyptian music?  Check out Nightwish's Tutankhamen (from Angels Fall First, their 1st) and The Pharaoh Sails To Orion (from Oceanborn, their 2nd).  Also, Pharao by Freedom Call from Crystal Empire - oh, and Pharaoh by Symphony X from The Diving Wings Of Tragedy.  That's all I can think of off the top of my head, though it seems most bands will do at least 1 Egyptian song at some point.  I think it's required.   :D

I changed my Icon again. The panda I used to show... was me, I made it for the girl i love, But after a while she realized that she doesn't feel about me the way I feel about her  :'( now I'm alone and my picture represent somehow the way I feel, this time the demon of the picture is also me. Maybe I can explain the draw but I think there isn't enough words in any language to tell you how I feel.

Maybe many people say that this isn't so bad, but when you planned your life around the one you love... :-/ "There are many women in the wold" people say, but I want only one...

So... all I can think (when I'm not thinking in her) is "The Road Goes Ever On"... sorry everyone to make you read this, maybe this isn't the right forum, thread or even maybe I should not have to post this but I wanted, I needed to write.
