We've had this soviet avatar for quite some time and its starting (lol) to look a bit dated. So to prove we are still the avant-garde we must make a new Soviet-Empire avatar. Submit your replacements here and once we have enough I'll make a poll. Make sure to save the project not just the image.

By that logic we should have stuck with the phonograph and we'd be listening to the crackly shit still. The proletarian way is a way of progress. And besides its not like there won't be an 'the old one' option.

I'm pretty sure vinyl is better than tapes or CD's

Only if you're a douchebag. And .mp3's are superior to all. The ability to have hundreds of thousands of songs on a single drive is was more relevant than the minuscule sound differences. But still not my point.

The point is that your analogy fails.

No it doesn't. Have you ever actually listened to a phonograph? Its fragging noise and way worse than CDs. But it plays/records sound well enough to have not continued but frag that. Butt frag. Then you and FC came in here and started shitting all over everything. Now it stinks and everything is ruined. I hope you're happy with yourself.

I like Dag's idea, though I agree with Kirov that Vinyl whoops ass. I had an idea, something like this, obviously worked on by someone else who can make it look better:

I didn't say record player I said phonograph. Shits all cracks and pops. And even modern records are really susceptible to scratching and wearing down of the grooves. Oil records are inferior technology that offers only marginally realer sound.

I'd also like to note that modifications of the existing avatar .psd. Like a modernization would be pretty cool.

Actually CS3 is way more intuitive and user-friendly than GIMP. That's not to say that advanced gimp users can't do pretty ballza arts in it (i seent 'em) but that becoming an advanced gimp user is harder. Plus there is a much wider array of brushes, patterns, and other user-made imports than for gimp. Plus why get gimp when cs3 is free? Being lazy is not the proletarian way. We have to take the most advanced tools of the bourgeoisie to use against them... oh wait I guess that's cs4.

Also the more I think about an update to the original the more I like it. That's what I'm gonna try I think.
