Hmm... Forum Avatars/Adventurer's Log avatars seem to make better headshots.

Oppose - Forum avatars are gif and hence lower quality than pngs. They also have a goofy smile which can be avoided with user-taken shots; if the direction it faces is a problem then we can just flip it. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 19:54, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - GIF images. I like the idea, but the quality is not as good as the PNG images'. Ancient talisman.png Oil4 Talk 20:42, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

GIF Images can easily be converted via stuff like Paint. --Coolnesse 20:56, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Graphics editors... --Coolnesse 20:58, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
Converting them to png does not remove the gif artefacts - it just increases the file size, not the quality. See [[Template:gif]]. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 21:00, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
I agree, but, do you see them on that image? --Coolnesse 21:03, February 13, 2010 (UTC)
It still looks bad :/ Twig Talk 772kZGs.png 21:19, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all. ShinyUnown T | C | E 21:57, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - To me, the in-game chatheads look better. --Iiii I I I 22:11, February 13, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - The smiles really annoy me Lol Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 01:15, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Then every time someone wanted to upload a new chathead for a new item (for example), they'd have to head all the way over to the Photo Booth, change their picture, etc etc. Not all of us want to change our pictures just for the wiki, and remember, you can only change your picture every 15 minutes. I highly doubt people would go through all that trouble when they can just sit at a bank, equip the item, and talk to a banker.

Oppose - Per Oli, Yanks and Diriz. ~ Fire Surge icon.png Sentry Telos Talk  08:01, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - I have seen many which had the top of the head, hair, and headwear cut off at the top. scoot4.pngscooties 08:07, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Lil Diriz 77, and Iiii I I I  —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Badboygamer7 (talk).

Oppose - The smiles look bad Crafting Supawilko 09:25, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Drizzl3 Swiz Talk Review Me 11:08, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Besides, it gives the impression that we've put more effort in, if we keep the chatheads, instead of copping out and using the forum avatars, and...Per evil...those smiles freak me out. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 16:17, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Comment - The 'freaky' smiles are epic. --Coolnesse 16:45, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Telos. Construction-icon.png Matt is Me / Harmonising / Lvl 3 skils3 Talk Cooking cape (t).png 17:57, February 14, 2010 (UTC)

Oppose - Per all. Those smiles creep me out as well.  Tien  21:04, February 14, 2010 (UTC)


Request Closure - Per RS:SNOW. scoot4.pngscooties 02:57, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Sure. Or was it me you asked? --Coolnesse 03:50, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
An admin has to close it. scoot4.pngscooties 05:02, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Closed - per RS:SNOW. The forum avatars will not be changed to the GIF version, and will remain in the current PNG form.   az talk   14:08, February 15, 2010 (UTC)
