Insipired by Nitrous's \"Rate The Signature Above You\" game.

The same rules apply here:
  • Basically what you do is rate the person's avatar above you on a scale from 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest.
  • You must be honest in your opinion - don't just say you don't like their avatar because you don't like them etc.
  • Please include a short explaination as to why you like or dislike the avatar you are rating. (This can be as simple as \"I really like the color scheme).
  • If you have rated the same avatar of the same person very recently, please don't rate it again, as this leads to spam (and not the kind you can eat!).
  • If you do not have an avatar, please do not post.

Now, rate my awesome avatar!

6 or 7/10

It's different (which is cool), but doesn't really fit this forum.

6/10 --- Cool avatar, except that it is very choppy and low quality. :(

7/10. Matches signature, but needs to be more creative.

8/10

I have always loved the look of orbs like that. There so easy to make, but look awesome.

Very blurry, and you got it from the forum's avatar gallery. Not unique at all. ;)

7/10. I like orb siggys, and this one is pretty good, though it is kind of jagged around some of the edges. :(

I need to get myself a new sig.  *shrug*

Nice color combination, but needs to be a bit more creative.

8/10  I like the Orb, it's very simple.  Almost too simple....

That's just how it is with the max resolution set to what it is.  Any circular thing will be jagged.  Just look at my avatar.  It's originally 150X150, and looks pretty smooth originally, but when cut down to 50X50, it gets a jagged look.

The max avatar size is 100x100, not 50x50.

The orb thing.... well... uh... it's interesting. It's actually pretty unique, it's not a brand name nor is it just some random picture or animated gif file. Well... perhaps it's random... but it's simple... unlike the million other \"random pictures\" out there.

It's rather pretty, I like it, though, it does not go with your sig, so.... points off. 8/10.

That honestly depends on the application used for resizing. I know that Photoshop CS (and presumably all other versions) uses some sort of unique, efficient, and effective algorithm for resizing that resizes, and anti-aliases it very smoothly. I suppose the very small pictures (7x7) get pretty choppy. Neh. Oh well.

I used to take that resizing feature in Photoshop for granted, but... once you look at MS Paint's resizing, or Paint.NET's resizing, it's very noticeable.

Not rating

But you all need to make your avatars 100x100 with an image editor.  That would make them all look much better.

Speaking of which, I need a new one and/or to re-size this one. :(
