It's been talked about a lot, but can we please finally get rid of the default Connolly avatar? TC is a great dude who had a tragic end to his career. Plus, he's nowhere near our most recent punching bag or laughing stock. Staff, Leino, Nolan, literally anyone but TC. Hell, make it Ted Black. It just seems like such a simple thing to do that would make this place a lot better

Ugh, no. There will be someone people that would leave it and that's negativity I don't need in my life.

I can't think of a more reviled recent Sabre than Stafford. Sure everyone hated Hodgson and Leino, but they weren't here very long. Stafford hate had an extended run.

Good for you, WC. There's something about holding up for scorn a former player who sacrificed his brain to play the game that's inappropriate, to say the least. Should I blame TP somehow? That'll probably be what it takes to get any action.

 

OTOH the outrage over TC being the default avatar could always spur people to use their own.

I propose that the default avatar better represent the posters that usually have them, rather anonymous in their activities here.  Maybe Rory Fitzpatrick, or Scott Arniel, or someone along those lines.  Someone under the radar so to speak.

We should have a contest.  Pick 5 or 6 forgetable Sabres players.  The player that the least number of members here can accurately identify is the knew default avatar.

I'd rather get moderator/owner support first.  No sense going through the motions for a dead end......

This has been brought up before. I don't think SDS wants to do anything about it, either because he likes the Connolly idea, doesn't see a problem with it or doesn't have the time to change it.

I feel like every time it's brought up it gets great responses from all the posters, but never gets anywhere for this reason.

No way should the best man at Duck's wedding be the default avatar. :P

Like PA said, it's to get people to change it.

 

It's in no way a dig at his concussions or legs, or chest....

 

If you guys wanna work on something different I'm sure we could get it done if it made sense.

Thanks for the answer. I get it's purpose, I just think it shouldn't be Connolly anymore. 

 

We could do We've's idea, or just pick a new player and we all vote on it. If we do that thread, any chance SDS may be amenable to it?

If it's presentable on the mod/owner end, I'll research some player ideas and make a vote thread.  Sounds like at least one mod is willing to consider the idea so when I have some time I'll get some ideas for a thread to pick a new default.  If SDS or someone chimes in that they don't want to be bothered with it I'll put the idea to bed.

Just as an FYI, I'm not trying to be a jerk about this, but people needing support email me at multiple addresses, use PM, the contact form, post items in every subforum or even ask for help inside a thread... I can't keep track of it all for two sites. I have to be able to funnel this stuff into 1-2 channels or requests will fall by the wayside more often than they should.

I just figured that maybe a new Connolly was needed as we're in a different era. Trust me, I hate that face too, but I'm just trying to find a new way to get people to change their avatar's by giving people a more hated/recent figure. Otherwise I'm just going to start yelling at people with Connolly faces  :lol:
