If this worked, my avatar is the Avatar. (The last Airbender).

Watched it long ago with my kids. Now on Netflix.

I really enjoyed that show.

What a happy, relaxed kitty! But this won't make sense as soon as you change your picture to something else!

That’s why there’s an avatar thread. You can ignore everything in it except for the most recent posts.
Without an avatar thread, every other thread gets gummed up with soon-obsolete digressions into “nice avatar. Is that..?”

Btw, this one is from when she was just a half year old. Looks like a small cheetah. O0

It's too bad I grew up with grains of rice instead of grains of gold!

Is there a photoshop master on the forum that can take Technovelist's avatar and make the white corners match the grey background of the board? ;D

The trick is to make the background transparent rather than any particular color.

Tech, would you make this your avatar?
