Above are the avatars, and below are the nominations, in alphabetical order, for Best Avatar.

1. chive

Nominated by Chorister: "This one is so funny because it looks so much like something else - and the cheeky strapline underneath reinforces the view. Rather like when my gmail account login page comes up - I never see a brown box, it always looks like a pair of brown y-fronts! I remember chive having a lot of fun with us trying to get us to guess what the picture really was when it first appeared."

2. Chorister

Nominated by piglet: "He's so cute, and always makes me go 'aah'."

3. Doublethink

Nominated by Paul M: "I just like it. Mysterious and attractive!"

4. eeGAD

Nominated by Erin: "Ingrid Third freakin' rocks, man."

5. Emma Louise

Nominated by PrettyFly: "I've just always thought it was very pretty - I'm fluffy like that - and I love the accompanying 'Storm in a Teapot' status."

6. Lots of Yay

Nominated by Zwingli: "Her avatar and title still make me smile every time she posts."

7. monkeylizard

Nominated by Sha_Sha: "It looks like a cat I had when he was wet."

8. Robert Armin

Nominated by Robert Armin: "My avatar is the Fool from the Rider-Waite Tarot pack. To some this is a symbol bursting with Christian significance, to others it is so anti-Christian it deserves to be smote with a thunderbolt. Therefore, to me it sums up the whole character of the Ship as a board of Christian unrest. (My nom de plume is that of a historical fool as well, as I seek to be one fool in the company of many others.)"

9. Scot

Nominated by KenWritez: "Scot's avatar is creative, striking, simple, unique and memorable. It's one of the best avatars I've ever seen and I've always liked it and envied it."

10. Smudgie

Nominated by Marvin the Martian: "It's just so cute."

11. Triple Tiara

Nominated by Geneviève: "I have always enjoyed TT's sense of humor, intellect, and lack of fanaticism regarding his faith tradition. The avatar is fabulous, and over the top. A wonderful chuckle."

I think TT's avatar is a fit replacement for his old one (co-opted by The Atheist). It's fitting, ironic and rather sinister.

Well, I'm just lost in admiration as he holds his head just so--because that crown thingie looks like it could fall off any moment with a very loud clunk. [Cool]

[Snigger] What a fitting description Genevieve. Cos whenever I succumb to pomposity I somehow immediately fall victim to some gaffe which shatters my dignity. No doubt that would happen were I to wear the triregnum - it would keep falling off at inopportune moments!

Well, if it should fall off, you could substitute a triple-decker jello mold. Doubt anyone would notice the difference!

I can't see how anyone could get past Emma's lovely teapot.

There's a shop not too far from me that has a similar one in the window, and I like it when two worlds collide.

I think Robert Armin's is the most intriguing, and the prettiest of the three with a yellow background. And the discreet use of Tarot imagery gets my vote for being subtly subversive.

All I can do is to offer either gin or chocolate for votes. Unless you know who Ingrid Thrid is, my avatar is lost on you. alas.

However, I've been a bit of a penguin collector all my life, so I've got a soft spot for smudgie. Yay's always makes me smile, and Doublethink's always makes me nervous.

However, it's monkey lizard's avatar that makes me laugh out loud. If I had 2 votes, I'd give the other vote to that crazy critter.

Again, a vote for eeGAD will get you gin or chocolate. (Perhaps if I watch Election again, I can channel my inner Tracy Flick!)

It gives me very great pleasure to announce the winner of the Best Avatar Award. Many hours of deliberation go into choosing these visual identities. We thank everyone who has lined the ship's coffers (others are welcome to join them) for the privilege of being unique as they stride the ship's decks.

So what did shippies make of those nominated?

Clearly after wrestling in prayer (and a trip his local?) dj_ordinaire slurred: 'I can't remember who I voted for. But I'm sure it was lovely - hooray for whoever it was and for everyone else, they're all worthy!"

That's the spirit, dj. Very helpful.
