I tried to change my avatar and I used this donkey image just coz it was handy (don't ask!) - now the profile updater won't let me change it! I AM AN ASS! NOOOOooooo!


Fish Posted: Feb 8th 2008

No, rastophulus, you are not....a donkey!8) You are just another mortal facing what my Irish grandmother used to call the "animosity of the inanimate". Sooner or later you will be allowed to change from a donkey into a human being again. :)

Didn't Shakespeare write a play about a situation like this???


squigly Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Rastophulus, have you tried hitting the F5 key to refresh your screen after selecting your new avatar? I used to have trouble with the image switching too until I read one of Katie's comments about refreshing the screen. Give it a try, or remain a Jack-ey.;)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Fish, do you mean I'm a Bottom as well as an ass? Noooooo!

Actually, I quite like it... It is nearly easter and it also means I can eat thistles! It's tricky holding a cocoa cup with hooves though...


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Hi Rastophulus! I was burning with anger when I saw this because I thought some eejit had written this about you!!! But, oohhh, I'm relieved. Anyway, that has happened to me several times. all you have to do is go onto the web again (refresh the page) and that should be it. But you have to delete the old one.;)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 9th 2008
:D

I worked out how to change it at last, but now I've put some 'gromit' eyes on it I think he looks cute! I might stay as a donkey aftr all!


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 9th 2008

He is cute!;)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Hooray! I just found you can do animated avatars! Watch my donkey's eyes! :D


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 9th 2008

How do you do it? I've been wondering! PLEASE TELL ME!!!|-)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 9th 2008

It's a secret! >:-)

(but you could google 'animated gifs' ;) )


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Oooooooooooooooohhh. A secret. But I wanted a moving Potter Pals one!!!:'(:'(


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Please?:-(


squigly Posted: Feb 9th 2008

Hi Sharkie! I was thinking of doing an animated avatar too but didn't know if it was allowed. I guess it is. You can find free avatars on the web. You should try rastophulus' suggestion of googling "animated gifs" or "Potter Pals" or just "avatars".

rastophulus, I like the blinking eyes! And your donkey is cute!8)


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

I did try the animated gifs thing but I didn't seem to remember to try it after I downloaded it. :D


Harry Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Umm, I Know What This Thread Means But I Dont Really Like It!, If Yall Get ME!


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Yes, I get you.:D


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Yes, I'm surprised you can type something like a*s but g-r-a-p-e comes back as a swear word. Try it. The site won't let you post with that word and other similar words.:-|


Harry Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Ohh Yea, Just Tried It And I Came Up With

Error! This is a family frendly web site, please do not swear


anti-pesto Posted: Feb 10th 2008

yer i some how think this discussion will end very soon. they're going 2 lock it sooner or later


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Yeah.


rastophulus Posted: Feb 10th 2008

What's wrong with donkeys all of a sudden?

Hey, Mark I animated your avatar! You should be able to right click on it and 'save picture as..' if you want to use it.


cinders1 Posted: Feb 10th 2008

wow rastophulus i love what youve done to contys model its fab,(sharkies avatar) ive tried to save it, but it will only save as a picture, i cant get it to wave like youve got it to do!!! can you help please, what do i need to do?:)


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

No freaking way, Rastophulus! Thank you sooooo much! That would be great! Yes, that happened to me when I tried to do a moving one months ago. It was very strange! We need help!:D


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Hey cinders and sharkie....

Same thing happened to me. So I did a little experiment and the following seems to work: First, instead of clicking on the link then right clicking the picture, you need to right click on the link itself. A menu pops up. Click on "save target as" and then you can save the animated icon to your computer. Just make sure it's a gif file and not bmp. Hope it works for you!


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Oh riiiiiiiight! Thank you soooo much Squigly!!!:D


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

I noticed that it worked when I was on another thread and all of a sudden your avatar started waving at me! lol|-)


cinders1 Posted: Feb 10th 2008

hey thanks squigly that worked, ive just put it on contys deviantart account as his avartar, hes been locked away now for about 3 hours up in his little studio, and his creation that hes working on is looking rather good:O;)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 10th 2008

I've had a cool idea! What about making mini-animations as avatars!!! Like tiny films! WOW! :O


squigly Posted: Feb 11th 2008

ooohh, cinders. Can't wait to see what conty's done now! Bet he's having loads of fun in his studio with a proper work table. Tick tick tick....is it done yet?

rastophulus, you should give it a try and see if a mini animation will work as an avatar. btw...how did you animate the avatar? Did you use photoshop?:O


cinders1 Posted: Feb 11th 2008

nope only the head is done, and an armature, i just ran up to see, and there is a peice of paper stuck to it PLEASE DONT TOUCH hehe and his plans are written up on his white board, love im ;) his go at lip sync went very well (but he wont let me post it!!) but his plans say hes going to lip sync the new model;)


conty Posted: Feb 11th 2008

great job rastophulus, i really like what youve done to my morph, thanks!!!! are you going to try to make a mini animation? i think its a great idea:)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 11th 2008

Glad you like it! There's this part of photoshop called Imageready that makes it really easy to animate gifs.
For 'minimations' (good word huh? :)) I'm trying to think of a story (with not many different frames) that can repeat over and over...
I've got one idea but it's a bit tricky!


squigly Posted: Feb 12th 2008

How about a W & G character who bumps into a wall, falls down on his bum, gets up and walks through the wall only to bump into another wall, falls on his bum, gets up etc. etc. It just keeps looping....or something similar to that?


squigly Posted: Feb 12th 2008

btw rastophulus, noticed that you're no longer an A$$ :O


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 12th 2008

Rastophulus, is Imageready free?:D


rastophulus Posted: Feb 12th 2008

Good ideas Squigly!

Mark - I don't think Imageready is free - I think you have to buy it :(

I'm trying to move this topic from this thread to this one: http://www.wallaceandgromit.com/forum/read/5576 because some people don't seem very happy with the title of this thread...


ste Posted: Feb 12th 2008

yeh rude


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 12th 2008

People would know it's not that kind of ass but yeah, the first impression might a bit off putting.:D


Josephine Posted: Feb 12th 2008

rastophulus! There's a funky song about donkeys...

It used to advertise a make of Renault cars!

It goes -

I see you, baby,
shaking that (blank)
shaking that (blank)
shaking that (blank)

Blank = a word that rhymes with "pass"

>:-)


rastophulus Posted: Feb 12th 2008

I like the one that goes;

Have you ever seen Quebec,
Donkey riding, donkey riding,
Have you ever seen Quebec
Riding on a donkey?

Sorry! Making an (blank) of myself!

(blank) - a word that rhymes with... erm, *thinks* what rhymes with 'idiot'?

BTW Jospehine have u thought of writing words to the W&G theme? I keep trying to but I can't get 'Cheese, lots of cheese and some crackers' out of my head!


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 13th 2008

Wahoo! I like those songs!;)


Josephine Posted: Feb 13th 2008

OK, then, let me see, rastophulus...to the tune of &

Right, guys and gals - from the top!

One, two, three, four and -

Cheese, lots of cheese and some crackers
Let's have a cup of tea or two!
Cheese, lots of cheese and some crackers
As many as we can get through - oo- oo!

I love inventing things
and giving i-deas wings
and has the knack of pulling me out of a rut!
He really is a pet
the best a man can get
Oh, is my canny, most intelligent muuuuut!

Cheese, lots of cheese, and some crackers!
Jam on toast flying through the breeze
and I are great snackers
Let's have some more of that cheese! Oh, please!

Those trousers may've been wrong
we lived to sing the song
Whilst did some bird at Strangeways Lux'ry Hotel!
We paid up all our debts
and had some money left
What did we spend it on? Oh, hecky-peck! Can't you teeeell?

Cheese, lots of cheese, and some crackers!
Wensleydale and some that's mature
Sometimes we might feel right knackered -
But cheese is a really great cure - ure -ure!

We have been in too deep
with and sheep
and rustling them into a dirty great van!
T'was like a scene from "Duel"
We almost drained our fuel
But in the end that ended up in the caaaaaan!

Cheese, lots of cheese, and some crackers!
Oh what a tasty little treat!
Let me sink my gleaming gnashers
into a treat hard to beat! Let's eat!



Whew! That's all I can come up with at the moment, rastopulus! Hope it's OK for you!

:)











Mark the shark Posted: Feb 13th 2008

Josephine Posted: Feb 13th 2008

As sung many moons ago by the Irish King of Cool, Val Doonican...

Sock Eye Salmon

Josephine Posted: Feb 13th 2008

Heeeee heeeeee!

rastophulus Posted: Feb 13th 2008

Josephine that is AMAZING! :O

Do you write songs for a living? You ought to if you don't!
I'm going to learn that and sing it while I'm animating!


squigly Posted: Feb 14th 2008

woah.....sock-eye. How long did it take you to write that? It's fantastic! I'll have to print it up somehow and sing along with a and DVD or something. I'm amazed by your endless talent!!!


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 14th 2008

Wahoo! Go Sock Eye, the fish of talent!!!:D
