    Retro Sig Week

    Remember the days when you first joined the forums? When the internet was sparkling and new? Remember when avatars were limited to a tiny 60x60 and sigs could only be a meager 80 pixels tall? Remember your first struggles with MSPaint/Photoshop? Remember that old picture you cropped just so you could have something to display after your post in the forum?

    I am happy to announce the beginning of... Retro Sig Week! Resurrect those old sigs and avatars for a week! You can wear the same ones all week, or choose a different one each day. Post here and tell us the stories of your retro sigs and avatars. Maybe you're still using your first sig, or perhaps your first sig was so horrible that you deleted it and threw out the harddrive.


    I will begin by presenting to you, my first ever real sig, made for me by fellow forum-goer thundrakkon, who took a look at the MSPaint monstrosities I was using and said, "Let me make you a nice sig." And nice it was, and still is! (Horrible MSPaint Monstrosities to come later next week).

    I approve of this thread.

    However, I will be unable to contribute much since most of my first creations were over the limits for the forums.

    EDIT: I originally posted my first sig I ever created, but as I misunderstood the intentions of this thread, I have deleted it.

    My very first sig

    Well, since I'm quite young here and I suck at anything artistic, I never changed my ugly sig.

    End of story

    All the things I really like to do are either illegal, immoral, or fattening.

    This was my first sig image (the very first I ever made for any forum). Apparently the 80px limit had already been changed to 100px in the beginning of 2006 :



    I have no recollection of what might have been the first avatar. I used some random anime faces back then, I reckon.

    My first "sig" is what I'm using now. No sig.

    But I have a collection of past avatars:

    I still can't even tell what your current avatar is from, Kraco.
    I remember Ryllharu's last two ava's, but I don't remember his first one.

    EDIT: Also, my new current was my first ever ava (second sig though) for the forums!

    EDIT2: Removed the sig.

    Kraco's first sig was of a raven or a crow or something in profile, sitting perched on something at night.

    I also have a vague memory of Ryllharu's first avatar being of something beige with some black scribbling on it or something? I may be thinking of Uchiha Barles or someone else.

    This was my own, after the VBulletin upgrade. My original one was the same phone, but closed, and before that it was one of the old forum engine's stock avatars. Also a telephone.

    Spengbob was my first and only sig. Before that I had lots of retarded text and anime quotes because I was an obnoxious weeaboo.

    <@Terra> he told me this, "man actually meeting terra is so fucking big", and he started crying. Then he bought me hot dogs

    ROFL I remember you making Speng Bob! I could never quite figure out if you drew the Bob, or if you found it online.

    I wish I had made it. I just found this video to be beautiful in its simplicity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2Skq...eature=related

    retro?
    I'm always in style. or out of it.

    here's my first sig, which was the basis for what I'm using today.


    I thought about adding a 3rd character to the sig a couple of months back, but I couldn't find any good photos of him, so I dropped the idea.

    sig made by Itachi-y2k5, thanks, dude!

    Oh, it was that one. Avatar, that is, not sig. The one I posted was my first sig, I'm 100% sure of that. But I used the raven pic as an avatar for a short while, yes. It was actually a partial scan of a postcard I randomly bought because it had such a nice and unique atmosphere. But since it had nothing to do with anime, I changed it to something that did have.

    Good memory you have there, Xan, despite having that abominably ugly sig.

    In honor of this thread, Im returning to my first Gotwoot avatar.

    Im just posting my first signature in Gotwoot though


    Also, I had tons of signatures before joining here, which I used on other forums, but I couldn't use them here because they exceeded the limits (they still do). A friend of mine did them for me when we used to write for an mexican online magazine back in college.
