Maybe instead of changing my avatar I'll show off my shame by wearing this B-Boy shirt in public places:

I've had the same avatar for the entire lifespan of this board. And I'll be damned if I'll abandon Mr. Pogo now for the likes of Chase fucking Stevens, even if he did once make me tap out four times in a row in unlicensed shoot-grappling matches held on the floor of a pizza parlor in front of a crowd of drunken wrestlers.

Hilariously enough, I didn't vote for Killer Khan, which sucks because thus ends my "Tejano Khan" joke with Johnny on Brainbuster

The bikini modeling really wasn't who Fukawa was at all. So there, new avatar, much more fitting. Plus, loved that little promotion.

A little late to the party, but I was the guy who voted for Doug Furnas. What can I say, I'm a sucker for guys jacked to the gills that don't have two left feet. Awesome grandma hugging babyface in Tennessee. Great tags in Japan. And if you ever got heeled on by the Dirty White Girl, that's a huge plus in my rankings.

Doug didn't crack the top 500 so he didn't get a pic, but my first guy to crack the 500 was Hector Guerrero and for some reason his pic isn't coming up. So I picked the oddest Furnas pic I could find.

Actually, I'm really happy to do this because it means I can pay some temporary tribute both to my vote Hector Garza and to Perro, Jr, who we lost just about a year ago, as well.

This Kimura picture is from Superluchas: Kengo getting his head shaved on 3/2/79 by the Arena Mexico barber, after losing a hair vs. hair match to Halcon Ortiz during his run as "Pak Choo".

From the reactions thread: "Re: me being the high vote for my upcoming new user pic Kengo Kimura - I absolutely predicted he would be my lowest high vote, such that I got the pic ready earlier today. #41 is almost certainly too high for him, but he was a personal favorite and to my mind the greatest revelation of the New Japan set, which I think has been the best overall of the 80s project (though I haven’t seen the Lucha set yet). His work with Fujinami and Fujiwara in singles was phenomenal, he was a tremendous heel and face, and proved an invaluable partner in the big Tag League tournaments and multi-man gauntlets. He's the second-rate Fujinami, but in such a way that still makes him phenomenal, and I love that that also-ran status become a chip on his shoulder and part of his heelish character."

I so hope Paul, whoever he is, has to rock that picture of Rush now.

The shame isn't in being the high vote on Kyle O'Reilly, it's just this stupid looking picture I've got as an avatar now

Anyone not willing to do this should have their ballot stricken from the record. Join in you miserable fuckers. One of us, one of us!

I already have my avatar of "shame" as I was right there with you on the bottom of the list, only I had Marty. But that Rush pic is so great that I actually wanted to use it. Unfortunately the file is too big so I can't use it as my avatar, so Beardbane Marty Scurll is staying.

Wondering who is going to have the most "no nonsense" list. Two metrics:

1. Highest placed avatar of shame

2. Most #no of ballot in final 100

I still haven't had a single guy come out.

Me neither. The race is on Parv.

Since I'm the high vote on both, I'll go full-blown Quebecer with an Amazing French Canadiens avatar.

Can a mod go in and change Jingus' avatar to a wet blanket?

It would be amazing if you end up having to change your avatar to Ted.

Just looked the first person on my list will show before anyone on Parv's list. However I will not be the high vote.

 

I think Parv will have some high votes... I don't know if I will, though.

If you want me to incessantly complain about it forever, sure. I've never agreed with boards forcing their members to change their names, titles, avatar pics, or whatever. If people want to participate with a fad, fine, but you shouldn't ever force them.
