Insert Credit Community Building: Forum Avatar Trust Fall

I uploaded my avatar with very little thought when I first signed up for this forum. I used it because it was available on my hard drive and kinda silly and Umehara Kiwase is a pretty Insert Credit game. But its time for a change.

This is a group participation thread. You post in here to have the Insert Credit community create you a new avatar. The spirit of the thread is that you you trust that the community will will look at what you have shared with the forums through your posts and create a fun and appropriate avatar for you.


  • If you post in this thread, you’ve got to pick a new forum avatar from ones that the community gives you. It’s cool. It’s fun. It’s exciting. Try to pick one of the first two or three submissions if they come in within a day or so. The idea is to receive a mystery avatar, not have professional (or even competent) art commissioned.

  • Tag your recipient using the @ function so they know who you’re posting it for. Bonus points for telling the person why you created it, what the inspiration was, etc.

  • Have a sense of humor about it. I fully expect to get some kind of luxury Midgar toilet with a Sanwa-brand joystick installed in it made in the PICO-8 sprite editor or something equally ridiculous.

  • Finally, be respectful of our fellow humans whom we only know via this forum. Remember that we really only know each other in text rather as whole individuals. Please err on the side of “silly fun that I think this other person would enjoy” rather than “this is an opportunity to roast someone”. It’s easy to mistake intentions, so you know, keep it more on the positive side!

I will also submit some new avatars for the first few people that post/request ones to get the ball rolling.


On the understanding I won‘t keep the avatar forever and a day, I’ll play! :slight_smile:

Okay, sure.

I'll do it

I am here, I am willing, I am prepared to screw up

Didn't want to rob anyone of the opportunity to crop fuller pictures. I am sorry for the dearth of square images.

@"Geoff"#115 you seem satisfied with yours so I have foregone finding you one Handsome Frogman

@"Kimimi"#156 I pulled indiscriminately* out of the Crayon Shin-chan hat for yours

*(I'm kidding it's because she's wearing a yukata and looks friendly (I don't know anything about CSC but your post reminded me of it recently))

For some reason I drew a connection once between a post of yours and Cosmo D, which led me to [this image]( (serendipitously featuring the Moon (and a Cow)).

Don't really want to explain this, just feeling the energy in this image
||you once made it a point to specify Les Misérables _the novel_ not the musical so here's "Victor Hugo" photographed by Andy Warhol||

What a cool post! For this I reward you with option paralysis (culled from your "favorite" as-seen-in-GQ brand Hermès)

Fridgeboy, these are things I wish I had in my fridge.

I'm a new woman!

(The new Shin-chan game is SO GOOD!)

I've taken the new flesh but will consider any other attempts

i‘m up for a new avatar but worry i’ll let everyone down by not making anyone else's avatars.

Go on then.

I‘m down for anything. I’m not that big into Street Fighter V and I've never played as Guile in any of the games. I just like this dumb picture of him doing his hair.

I don't want to remove the picture of my waifu Beatrice, but I have been with the same avatar since I registered so do your worst.

I have enough trouble expressing my selfness (and I AM my self!) that I can't imagine it would be any easier for the forum…but hey, I can be convinced to hang up the glowing polyhedral beacon for a little while :slight_smile:
