New Kim Avatars...

Sorry ppl - there is no need to vote right now anymore. Anybody can post her/his fave pic of Kimmy in this thread - then we can put up a new poll with more choices... seems the fairest.

I really don't like the Kim-avatar we're having now (I think it's too vague) - but maybe I'm the only one. So I'm presenting two other choices here, and I propose we vote...

I have uploaded the pics to my photo gallery, but since I have to wait till they've been approved, I can't post them here as images. Instead, I have provided these links:

They both are great, but I like the 2nd one better.

I like all of them,as Kim is smiling in all of them(and i looove her smile ).But among these three I would choose the current one(regardless the quality of the pic).
I don't know if there is a restriction on how many Kim-avatars we can have,but i assume, since there is a poll,that we have to choose and keep only one of them.


In that case i would like,if i may, to extend our options,but since this is a poll and i really don't want to spoil it,i will e-mail you with my suggestions.

And since i still haven't introduced my self properly in the "people behind the messages" thread,until then..
I am Mia and i say Hi to everybody in here!

Hi Mia - I'm Mark.


Yes, I think we can only have one. I thought of organizing a poll, since the Venus-fans did the same...

Of course: anybody can propose any pic of Kim. (But if we have hunderds of them, chosing will not get easier )

Once we've agreed on a pic and trimmed it to the max size for an avatar (100 x 100 pix), we can ask wta_amanda to change it...


I mainly proposed these two others to test the water - 'cause I seemed to be the only one who didn't really like the current avatar.

I really like the current avatar, it is one of the most beautiful Kim pictures I have ever seen, but you're right that it is somehow a bit too vague. Is there a way in which we can keep the same picture, but enhace its quality?

You DO?! "De gustibus non disputandum est..." I suppose.

Fieke, Mia (Pathfinder) just sent me a pm (which I replied to) saying she had been thinking of posting her own poll... with some other choices.

I think it wouldn't be a bad idea if everyone posted her/his own favorites in this thread for now, disregarding the poll (alas, I can't delete it - we're not allowed anymore to delete threads we have started...) --- or we could ask Ingrid to delete this thread and start another one with all [edit:]are OUR fave pics of Kim.

THEN, after some time to think it over, we could vote. Sounds fair? What do you think?

Erm, I do, yes (I'm shocked to see you're so shocked )
Anyway, this sounds like a good idea. I bet there are a lot more beautiful Kim pics out there I haven't seen yet.
I also think that there are a lot of people who would like to make their own suggestions, but have no idea of how to make an avatar, so the fairest idea would indeed be that everybody posts their favourite Kim pic and we have a poll then about which one we would like as an avatar.
*looking forward to Mia's (and everybody else's) suggestions*

Mia had selected 4 pics; I suggested in my reply to her pm that it might be better if the pics were downsized to avatar-format (max 100 x 100 pixels) before putting them in the thread, so that we could see them like they would look as an avatar...

Everybody who would wants to submit their own favorite pics but don't know how to downsize them: just attach them, I'll download them and make them the right format...

(I'm curious too. But if a majority is in favor of the current VAGUE and OLD pic , I'll quietly commit suicide and you'll never hear me complaining about it again. )

Hi Mia, welcome to the Lounge!

(and shame on you, for not introducing yourself properly )

I hope you post often and have a good time in here.

btw I'm Ingrid, one of the mods (the wicked one, it seems )

Mark, thanks for the great idea!

I prefer the avatar as it is, although the resolution isn't really great.
Of your two alternatives, I really like the second best although it's not my fav either (I'm difficult, I know ).

I've been quickly browsing through some of my pics, and I'd like to post a few more of these close-ups of Kim. I think there could be a few alternatives in these too.

Maybe someone else has another pic to add for consideration?

I hope we get approval for more than one avatar though, that would be really .

Ok - thanks. (I was trying to make this poll - it's my first one - and afterwards I saw to my astonishment that I had made TWO threads one with, and one without the poll. Don't know how...)

I'm busy downsizing your pics, to present them in avatar-format. I'll post them later.

It would indeed be great if we could have more than 1 avatar. I really don't like the current avatar of her (or did I mention that already? ) - but I have the impression the majority here DOES. Grrr.

I like your pics, though...

ooh! now look what i 've done!..creating expectations plus ruining mark's poll!

OK.The pics of Kim that,in my opinion,could make a great avatar are:
*crosses finger since it's the first time posting attachments*
The last one is for Fieke (..same clothes,same hairdo,different angle but the quality seems to be better..)

Too bad i can't resize them,and i can't see what it would really be like as an avatar If anybody has the time to do it,ehh thanks in advance!
As Mark said,i do have another pic of Kim(4 in total)that i really like,but since i don't remember when i saved it or where i saved from, ,it would be better not to post it now just to avoid (in any case)ehh *cough*copyright issues.

Thanks for the welcome *wickedmodisawwhatyoudidinthehumointerviewthreadan diagreethatyouareanevilwoman*ehhh i mean Ingrid!
