2012 Annual ORP Coolest Avatar Award™

Online Roleplaying has been running for more than a decade now, and in all that time we have had but one tradition. Yes, it is time for The 11th Annual Online-Roleplaying Coolest Avatar Award™! Eleven years and some people still haven't won, how very sad.

On this day for the past decade, certain mysterious individuals have gathered to take part in one of the longest running and most obscure April Fools jokes in history. That joke has now achieved life of its own and cannot be stopped until we discover who has the Coolest Avatar of 2012™!

Do you have what it takes to join the champions of the past such as WhoNaN, BigRedRod, LeeCHeSSS, Noocytx, Gralhruk, jiffypop, red_dr4g0n94, or undefeated three time champion itches? These mythic figures are the true heroes of this age

One night long ago, I lay upon the cool grass and cast my vision to the dark sky above. The stars danced with otherworldly grace and as I observed them I discovered the secret laws to this most holy of rituals.

The rules are simple and I'll run through them here for those who are new or have forgotten:
  • For one week from the time of this post, nominations will be open
  • You can only nominate yourself
  • Your avatar can be anything (provided it's appropriate for this site i.e. no vulgar pictures)
  • The avatar need not be your own creation
  • You can't re-enter an avatar that has already won
  • And don't change your avatar once you have nominated yourself


Also remember to include a six word or less description or I'll make one up for you - oh let's be honest, I'm going to do that anyway.

Once the nominations are collected they will be placed in a poll that will remain open for another seven days (my time), after which we will either enter a 48 hour Sudden-Death tie breaker, or adorn the winner with their ceremonial bragging rights. We suggest putting the phrase "Winner of the 2012 Coolest Avatar Award™" in your signature.

Don't miss out on this rare chance to be the butt of a joke you don't understand!

Hrm. itches seems to win on years that are multiples of 3. This is obviously rigged, you guys.

This signature tends to go up for a few week this time of year. Also I'm highly offended by your assertion that this fair and high minded competition is in anyway biased towards the guy who wins with shit avatars every time he enters.

I mean, the nerve of it.

The list so far:
  1. Linklegacy77 - I have a shield!
  2. Mercutio - I also have a shield!
  3. Krypton - I ALSO Have a Shield!
  4. Marcus316 - I don't have a shield

It's the "who has the best shield avatar" contest. I'll try to find one.

Also too much work. Copy/paste. If Gral reeeeaaally wants it that way, he can just edit my above post.

And would defeat the purpose of it being the Chaos Shield!

So this is still on, and about 48 hours until the voting starts.

I'll just use this one. Unless people will hate me from now on for not bringing a shield to the field. I cannot have people hate me. I'm sensitve like that. So.. don't.

However:
"No shield will stop me!"

... at least there's a shield mentioned.

No. Get a shield, or be lumped in with Marcus316 and his state of shieldless existence.
