Explain Your Icon!


#82

Oh also if you didn’t know you can also make your profile banner background an animated gif. Again I can’t remember who has it, but I saw someone with one


#83

Gasp! That can be animated too? Now to go find a gif to place there…I want everything moving! Mwahahaha!


#84

Neat. Gone back to my original avatar now. Fits better with the new user card.


#85

Yay, now profile banner and user card are both gifs as well! Thanks for the info on that being a possibility. @PeteMcc

Honestly, I like that avatar for you better and it does fit with the user card. Plus it’s less mesmerizing. @Fraggles


#86

@Elocin30 is your profile banner flirting with me?


#87

Lol, could be…or it could just be trying to lure you closer so it can pounce to make you dinner. :joy_cat:


#88

I think I was staring at a tank of fish one day, and on the same day I made my Steam account and named it Fishy, so it’s a picture of a fish I saw.


#89

No Problems Mate.

Oh shit, hadn’t seen this thread before! Fun!

My original icon was a blurry sillouette negative, designed based on an image of Mr. X from the boardgame Scotland Yard. The idea came from an alternate alias I use called ‘insignificant figure’. I found the rainbow effect when playing around with an image’s lighting, and I liked it so I used it :smile:


#91

@PeteMcc I saw the new one and I think it’s awesome.


#92

Now I want to change mine to something cool. I will come up with an animated thing…


#93

That gif is literally…AWESOME!


#94

@nebula7 It might’ve been the first, not sure.
@Fraggles Yup it always was, I just didn’t want it too flashy when no one else was using gifs.:smile:


#95

Always? I could have sworn you had a static image for a long time and I only noticed this one was a gif because the image was different. :confused:


#96

Ah no I haven’t always had this specific image, but I have had this one for months and it was always animated (does 2 frames even count as animation?:thinking:).


#97

Thanks mate, I think I’ll keep it for a little while at least


#98

Meibe I don’t wanna.

it’s an Atari 2600 joystick which was my first experience with video games, with a gold skull button which is too small to make out 99% of the time, in reference to my name.

Mine is a little strange. I was browsing YouTube one day and came across this amazing LP. It is called An Empty Bliss Beyond This World by The Caretaker. I will post a link to the video. But, I essentially found the art-work and photoshopped a cigarette instead of a match. I believe it is supposed to be a ball of clay. It gets a little repetitive (and that is how it is supposed to be), but I highly recommend giving it a listen. It is great for long car rides or whenever you are playing a chill game and can zone out.
