OK, here’s the deal. There's still time to join in and become part of OS history.
Everyone loves a First Edition, and you can be part of one. The first ever Official Open Salon Avatar Collage Project is off and running – and we’re accepting up to 400 avatars (profile images) for the 23” x 23” poster, as well as t-shirts and mugs to be unveiled in December.
All you have to do is post a decent resolution image of your avatar (no copyright items, though) on your blog and tag it ‘OS Collage’ so we can find it. We’ll then download the image and post a comment on your blog post letting you know that you’re in the mix. If you don't receive an acknowledging comment from DogWoman, we don't have your avatar. Send us a message if you're confused. For more info, go to Skeptic Turtle’s post for OS Avatar Collage Version 2.0
The current count is up to 109 after just two days.
Some lively discussion took place yesterday with infamous curmudgeon BBE weighing in on the project. With the usual panache that we’ve come to expect, BBE’s acerbic diatribe tried to cast a pall over the party. Are we going to let Eeyore rain on our parade? Thrown down the gauntlet, BBE has (sorry, couldn’t help the Yoda speak). This requires a call to action! There are some 6,000 of us out there, and the BBEs of the blogosphere won’t be able to keep a mere 400 of us down. Stand up and be counted.
The Few. The Proud. The OS Avatar Collagers.
