I'm not gonna shoot anybody with keyboard web-bullets don't worry, lol...
In my defence, I was aiming for avatars that would not require a horizontal and/or vertical scroll to view the entire thing (i.e. Fredgerd's)
Plus the fact that I never put my name on them anywhere.
I understand everyone's different in their tastes but I will also be the first to defend myself and explain my points.
No harm done, if someone requests an avatar that has maximum glow on it or 200 pixel long blood splatter on them, then that's what they'll get... I'd rather an avatar look clean and fit the space provided, that's all.
