couple that had to be re-uploaded:
I mean I don't think it was a complaint as much as it was just an observation. And I don't disagree with him. For being on this board for nearly 7 years, these are my least favorite playoff avatars we've had. I think it's just most won't get the reference because they haven't seen the film and/or just don't care for it. Also most of them are 5+ slides, it gets a bit ridiculous having 3 or 4 different slides of non-hockey related stuff.
The difference between this post and the posts we're talking about, is that this one is constructive. Thanks for the input. I noticed not too many people were making any, so I decided to make some because people seemed to like my original. It's my first time doing this, so yeah.
Not to mention I put in several hours finding these images, editing them myself, making the GIFs, remaking the GIFs, uploading and then posting them, yet it only takes 5 seconds to call them bad. It doesn't bother me though, you guys don't have to use them, and I don't have to make them, but I did.
Honestly, this image could have made for a good play-off avatar.
I thought Ranksu was making a broader complaint about the avatars across all the playoff teams. I still think its in poor taste to complain without contributing to making them at all, but I don't think he was singling out the ones you made.
And as for me, I think they're awesome. I'm getting a kick out of a poster who doesn't like me copying my avatar without realizing, but otherwise its been cool how quickly you've made individual ones for pretty much everyone that has asked.
Finally, seriously, there are people who don't like that movie?
It's a pretty old movie (almost as old as the Blues). It's also really long and there aren't a ton of explosions and action, so I understand why it might not be enjoyable for everyone. The kind of film that The Good the Bad and the Ugly is just isn't a popular style these days. It wouldn't sell to today's audience, which I think is a shame. Personally, I like all genres of movies from nearly all time periods (except super hero movies because they've been done to death for the last 8+ years, and I guess recent horror movies because they're mainly just jumpscares). The Good the Bad and the Ugly is my favorite movie, and one of the greatest films ever made, if not the best. The graveyard scene (which is what the avatar pictures are from) is in my opinion the greatest scene in movie history. The amount of thought put into that scene is astounding. The cinematography is amazing, how the shots are done, the eye movements, the music. No words are spoken, but so much is said.
Now you got me going, I could talk for hours about movies. I'm a big movie guy.
Put RobbK on Clint, and we're golden.
Can you make that a gif lol. Perfect in ever way
Can someone make Robb a permanent avatar where he is dressed like the gunslinger? It suits him.
Would it be to much to ask for a Good/Bad/Ugly Avatar using either this image or gif?
If time permits. I want to be fully on board with you guys!
That was a great use of the draft pick!
WHO are you haven't seen you in this board never?
He was drafted by us from fans whose teams are not in the playoffs.
The main boards had a fan bandwagon draft, like what the hurricanes fans did but since they made it this year, it’s random fans.
Welcome @DuckTech !!
So welcoming Ranksu. We traded you for him. It's a better deal than the ROR trade. Please go report to the Ducks board.
Coffee out the nose... It burns, but my god is that ever sharp Maj!
I didnt know thanks. I normally follow this board only sai I'm not totally in time what happends on other boards.
Actually it's all part of the ROR trade. your 1st to Buffalo, that 1st moved to Anaheim, Anaheim fan draft pick back to Buffalo but since they didn't make playoffs that pick got sent to the fans here. Now you're stuck with me for the remainder of the play-offs aaaaand likely having me as a lurker on and off when I need a vacation from things in Ducks-land.
