Of the original 14, you guys still have ONE left!  Of the second set of 5 that I added, there are TWO still left unidentified!
 
Also, the key questions still remain.  What are the two switcheroos?  Which is the one that survived and still exists on "the Gridiron" as something else?  And, which one is the one that I am responsible for having come up with?
 
Go at it, boyz!  Don't let it all fall to Philly when he gets back!

OK, I think this guy has changed...  I don't remember him having a beard before.  But the sunglasses look familiar...  
 
 
I think this may be the one you created...  
 
 
Could this be another switcheroo?  
 
 
This one may have existed as something else before...

Alright, ugley has the two from the second set.  That is finished.
 
Philly nailed the one that I am responsible for.
 
STILL, there is one from the original first set that has not been identified...  as such!
 
And, the two switcheroos and the one that survived (the switcherooing) have STILL not been identified.  I want to clarify once again what this means as I think Philly may have been confused...  Two of the "smiley personnas" were changed to different smiley faces, like what I did with "newbie" and "stick out my tongue" in the past... same label/personna, different graphic.  Some hints:  1) don't look too hard; he stares you right in the face right off the bat and 2) he always disagrees.  Now one of those two "original" smiley faces still exists on "the Gridiron" as a (slightly) different personna/with a different label.  This should be very easy to figure out once you have identified the two switcheroos.  So, the questions are:  "what are the two that were switched?" and "which one of the two that was switched out survived?"
 
Now, you've got the scent!  Go get 'em, boyz!

Bang, bang!  That's two down!
 
I can't believe you guys still don't know which one the one added in the first wave is, though! Hint:  he is FAMOUS and he has been mentioned by one of you during this hunt, just not correctly!
 
As for the other "new smiley with an old name", it is a bit tricky, BUT HE IS RIGHT UNDER YOUR NOSES!  Who are all these little critters named after?  He is the purest of them all.  He is the spawn from which they all have come to exist.  He is... ?

Did you mean , Philster?
 
Anyway, bang, bang! We're finny, at least for now!  As for "Mr. Original 'Smiley'" there, yea, I found that one, which I like much more.  It has a slightly bigger smile and eyes.  He just looks "smilier"!  The old one looked just like "sad", except the mouth was flipped.  Never really looked that "happy"/"smiley" to me.
 
Anyway, good job, guys!  Thanks for playing along and humoring me! I am now being told by the "keepers" 'round here that I have to put that funny jacket on again and go back to my room!

I saw you use this one before, Steg, but thought it was just an image url that you pasted in the message.

Okay, I will go ahead and introduce this little guy,   "St. Patrick"!  He was brought in the fold with our esteemed Irish members Mr. O'Dell and the team owners of the Irish Fantasy League of American Football (IFLAF) in mind.  I have actually had this smiley in my collection for quite awhile, but thought that this time of year would be such a "downtime" for us, that he would be a frivilous addition.  You guys have proven me wrong. Thanks!
 
Also of note, in case you missed it, I added two avatars to the database.  One is a USFL graphic, labeled "USFL"; the other is titled "The_Catch" and has been displayed as an avatar in the past by our member Philly.

The Catch is actually a painting by Leroy Neiman... one of the most celebrated sports artists of our time.  The small size of the avatar does not truly do it justice.  If you're an afficionado of the fine arts, and have a few minutes to spare, check out some of his work.  Interesting technique...

Philly, I got a proposal... and a chance to let manifest that philosophy of "opportunity on 'the Gridiron'".  If there is a group of football paintings by Neiman that you can download and would be worthy of being used as avatars like "The Catch", I would be willing to add them to our avatar database as a group, rather than just this random one we have.  I am still not at a point where I could take on such a project nor would I be as inspired to take this on as you might be.  Ultimately, though, it would not be that big of a project.  It would just require you to do the first three steps.  First, you would need to collect them; then you would have to name them EXACTLY according to the following pattern:  Art_Neiman_The_Catch.  Lastly, the collection would need to be "zipped" up, i.e. put into a ".zip" file, and sent to me.  Then I will do the fourth step of uploading them to the server.  What do you think?  Can you download more of his football-related works like you did "The Catch"?  Anyway, I'm game if you are.  Helping a site develop (its personality), moreover to this magnitude... not too many places you have that opportunity.

Not a problem, Steg... though it may have to wait a couple weeks.  I'm swamped at work now, have a baby shower tomorrow (yes, mine and my wife's), vacation next week (Las Vegas for the opening weekend of NCAAs!), and then I can get to it when I come back.
 
I'm not sure how many other football paintings he's done, but I'll check.  Do you want .jpgs, .gifs, or something else?  What size do you need (100 x 100 max)?

First, congratulations and good luck w/ the !
 
A distant second, thanks for coming through.  I really like the idea .  Anyway, JPEG's, GIF's, doesn't matter!  "The Catch" is actually a JPEG though GIF's are the usual for this kind of thing.  100 X 100 max should be the rule, but as "official" avatars of the site, they will be displayed at whatever size they are.
