    I wouldn't have expected it to be that ambiguous: like all other characters in the game, it's a pig. I believe those are flight goggles it has lifted up on its head, or perhaps a mask of some sort. It's wearing a scarf; what you're seeing trail off to the right is the end of the scarf, not cigarette smoke (iew). It has its hand (so to speak) raised in triumph. (In the game, it actually first appears with its arm down, then it raises it.)

    I made the icon myself from a screenshot. Come to think of it, maybe I should replace it with an animated version - the scarf "flaps in the breeze" in the game.

    This game SO needs a sequel, or at least a modern remake. Maybe I should take the matter into my own hands. - ZM

    I had a 3-D gif of pac-man for the longest time...then switched to this photo of my daughter and I (taken during the Xbox Pac-Man World Championship in NYC last year). It was taken by a member of the media and was totally unscripted. I found it on Flickr after we got back....

    Ebo has been my nickname since I was 5. I go by that and Eebs. No one who knows me well calls me Elizabeth, not even my own mother (despite the fact I like my given name just fine).

    I'd like to guess that David Nelson's \"Bernard\" means he has some undying love for Maniac Mansion, but I'm sure that's probably not it.

    My avatar is just a cool little .gif of EarthBound characters I've always liked. The only other gaming picture I can think of that I've dug is this one, and I wouldn't want to shrink it because of the resolution it'd lose:

    I was looking for a username once for a forum, and since I always liked Crazy Kong (better than Donkey Kong even), I chose that. Just been using it on arcade related forums since then. The avatar is the goofy looking kong when Mario clears the rivets on Crazy Kong part 2 (the Falcon version). His head is upside down compared to DK, and he has the \"GIVE UP!!\" message.

    Also, to RMacauley, some forums require webspace for an avatar, but this one, you can upload one directly from your PC.

    To Aart/PacWhiz, you never did say what your avatar was from, it's not necessarily obvious to everyone, I don't know what it's from ;)

    Thats interesting to know. Back in the day when I joined the site (man I feel old, it was a long time ago) you needed web space to have an avatar or have someone else host it for you.

    I'll get something sorted out soon.


    It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

    No need for me to explain my name but my avatar is Jabbin' Jim from the Final Round by Konami. Truthfully speaking it was the first thing that hit my head and the second something hits my head I use it.

    mine is a take off of the excellent indie rock band, Built to Spill. I went to make my email address ages ago and was going to use builttospill, but it was taken, so in defeat i chose builttofail
