Stanford Tulpa Study looking for more participants
(if you're chosen they'll pay for travel and lodging!)

Does anyone want a profile pic like mine?

Specifically where it chooses a random image every time. Just wondering if anybody would be interested in it.



Editing OP for visibility: I will host changing avatars for you! Just send me a PM with all the images,
  • I prefer dropbox for file sharing/download/whatever, but mediashare or similar works. If all else fails I can setup a place for you to upload to.
  • PNG format. It works the best. (gif works as well, but it's all or none actually both will probably work, see below)
  • No more than 150px in either direction, since it never is displayed any larger than that anyway
  • All your images have to be the same aspect ratio, otherwise the forum software messes them up.
  • No more than 150 images. That number was just made up just now and is based on nothing except vague impressions of what might cause problems at some point maybe. The number is subject to change at any time and you can ask for more if you really want more.
  • I can totes mess with weights such that eg one image is more/less likely to appear if you want.
Well I guess if you're too lazy to make sure that's all working correctly than just say "Buggerwart" in your pm and send me images in whatever dimensions and format and I'll get it straigtened out. But only if YOU'RE TOO LAZY.

Alright, it's, uh, been, an amount of time. So PM me a zip file of the images you want to cycle between and I'll get you setup.

A few things to note:

That sounds pretty awesome!

So, it's not possible to have a mixture of png and gif files (stills and animated ones), right?
I could provide everything in gif 256 colors, looks the same as png of jpg anyway. Are there any limitations regarding transparency or the amount of frames?
How should the desired weight be expressed?
