2009 Annual ORP Coolest Avatar Award™

The downside to the recent take over and me working is that I'm not online at midnight to post this, but it's April 1st in most of the world by now so we may as well kick it off.

That's right, it is time for the 8th annual Online-Roleplaying Coolest Avatar Award™! At this date every year Orp gathers to measure, mock and menace until we've found the Coolest Avatar of 2009™!

Do you have the skill to join the mighty ranks of past winners such as WhoNaN, BigRedRod, LeeCHeSSS, Noocytx, Gralhruk and undefeated two time champion itches? I doubt it, but why listen to me?

The rules are simple and I'lll run through them here for those who are new or have forgotton:
  • 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 (this removes all of Team Admin except BRR)
  • And don't change your avatar once you have nominated yourself

And they thought putting a man on the moon was complicated. Remember to include a six word or less description or I'll make one up for you. I may do that anyway, just because I'm a bitter old man.

Once the nominations are collected they will be placed in a poll that will remain open for another seven days (my time), at the end of which the winner will be announced (for those who have trouble understanding what the pretty-coloured-lines and numbers mean) and given their ceremonial bragging rights - we suggest putting the phrase "Winner of the 2009 Coolest Avatar Award™" in your signature.

Don't miss out on your chance to compete in this meaningless competition!

*laughs* He wasn't kidding about that six-word limit, was he? At least we didn't all make our names look like the latest edition of RPG: the Game. (Really, now. How many games have their name in Title Colon the Descriptive format? Maybe that'd be worth making a thread elsewhere.)

However, if you should LOSE, then you won't be able to claim being undefeated anymore

Well the poll is over and I do delcare myself Undefeated Three Time Champion! I'm not bad looking either.

I'd like to thank my family, everyone who voted for me and my campaign staff who put in endless hours of work filling out ballot papers. Also well done to Doombot, I'm not used to having competition in these things.

Clearly the majority of the votes were due to novelty and cheek, and not any real artistic or aesthetic merit.

Ok, maybe just a few.

Are any of the votes ever due to artistic or aesthetic merit? I mean I've won this thing three times now, and I only had a decent avatar once.
