Hey all, I've made some pirate-themed avatars for the new forums. They're genuine flags that were used by real pirates, some of whom you might be familiar with.

i thought the whole skull n crossbones was just a stereotype

Thanks Flanders & Lemon Head :). Just to clear things up, you can use these avatars by either copying their URL from the above posts, or by picking them from the avatar selector in the User Control Panel (http://www.lucasforums.com/usercp.php).

Very, very cool Met. If I didn't love my own so much I'd change it to one of those! :D

What is yours? The more I stare at it, the less obvious it is. :(

It's probably one of those retarded statements where something that shouldn't be a compliment becomes one.

Examples:

Bad (Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?)

Rapes (Dude, this ice cream rapes. It's the best I've ever had.)

Runs on Linux (Dude, Windows sucks! If all you want to do is play Quake 3, it runs on linux, you know.)

Had to get in a little linux plug there?

Um, he's saying that "Runs on Linux" shouldn't be used as a positive descriptor, but is anyway. Get it? Punchline! Ho ho.

Hey Met, I wonder if you can make some Monkey Island avatars? :D [hint hint, nudge nudge]

Well, there are lots of MI avatars already... You might want to actually take a look at them before requesting more.

You could be really cool and add the ones which I just posted in the Fan Art forum. :p
