After much contemplation on the matter, I had decided to start once again offering avatars to members that request them from me.
--- A bit of history ---
I had asked that my previous thread be closed due to some unscrupulous members (who shall remain nameless) who would just go to the old thread and
just take my avatars for there own use without my consent or foreknowledge.
That thread was basically a large collection of the avatars that I had created over the course of my stay here on ATS.
--- The new thread (this one) ----
This thread will not feature such collections. This thread is solely for the purpose of members requesting a custom avatar made by me.
--- Rules of engagement ---
If you are requesting an avatar from me, it would be good for me if you had some idea to start with; and good for you as well, as I don't want to
take the time to create something that the recipient does not like. Best thing to do is to provide image(s) that you wish to be included, or at least
give me a general idea on what to use as a theme. I am hardly creative enough to come up with ideas off the top of my head that would appeal to the
masses, but I try my best to expand upon the ideas of the individual member.
--- Last Words ---
Please do not come to this thread to take without asking. Most of the Avatars in this thread are custom made for the member that requests it. Once I
deliver the finished avatar to the member that requested it, it is no longer my property, and you would in effect be stealing from them as well.
--- Amnesty ---
Lastly, I hold nothing against those members who had previously taken my avatars without asking for them, and hold no grudges. I had not explicitly
stipulated in the old thread that permission had to be asked to use my avatars, and for that I am at fault. So if you are using an avatar by me that
you had not asked for, consider it a gift.
--- But ---
There's always a "but"...
If I find any member reappropriating the avatars from this thread for their own usage without proper consent or permission, I will report the
matter to the staff here.
--- Let's Roll ---
Okay, let's kick this off!
