    The avatar challenge

    When England won the Ashes, a lot of people had to put a lot of strange things in their avatars.

    Now its your chance to do the same!

    Claim some thing will never happen. Else you put some thing as your avatar.

    Posters whose avatars have not changed for quite some time:

    Neil
    Marc
    Samuel vimes
    Richard
    Age master
    TEC
    NNanden
    Faaip
    Tim
    Halsey
    Sudeep
    Andy - Mr. Pineapple
    Deja moo - Mr. Tf

    These are of course just some of the names.

    Samuel Vimes has already made himself an avatar challenge http://forum.cricketweb.net/showpost...&postcount=224

    Will you?

    Some forthcoming series which may give you the feelings of putting up avatar challenges:

    England in Pakistan
    New Zealand in South Africa
    Sri Lanka in India

    If England lose a Test in Pakistan, I'll let the rest of the board choose which Pakistan player I have in my avatar for the proceeding month.

    Here's one - "I claim I will not change my avatar"
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Hey Aussie,there was a debate last night on radio about ,Why are small players the cream of cricket and only great bowlers(fast) are tall,
    They mentioned Tendulkar,Ponting,Lara,Border,Bradman,Gavaskar,War ne ,Marulli, just to name a few. They come to the conclusion that the height of these and others has a lot to do with the success,however they said they believe a perfect build for cricket is around Viv Richards,Graham,Pollock,Garry sobers height,But hey were really struggling to find a great tall,that excelled with the bat,they come up with Clive Lloyd,can you think of another great tall to challenge these pip sqeeks.\
    Must be something oin it though as the small players seem to be the ones that hold all the records?

    I don't think Neil will ever change his avatar, because once he does, he can never change it back.

    I'd imagine that with his role in the site he could persuade James to let him change it...

    I change mine all the time (I get bored easily), but here's one: if England lose the test series in Pakistan I'll have Robbie C. Williams as my avatar for a month.
