Is this better?

Is this avatar better, can people tell that I'm not a dude with it? Or do I need to go for something a little more obvious?

Careful, there was a huge ruckus a couple years back because of people having feet in their avatar.

I can't figure out the trouble with feet in the avatar. I've had various feet pictures there for ages. I like the colors on the toes.

Thanks, those three colors, green red & glitter, were my testing of Piggy Polish. I thought it was a little thin and had to put on about 1.5 more coats than usual. But I really liked the glitter top coat.

Also from what I remember, the first member claimed usage of feet as their avatar as their own, and wanted no one else to use feet as avatars. In protest, I used a pic of my cat's feet as my avatar. I'll see if I can dig it out of whatever harddrive it's on and use it again.

Okay, I'll probably enjoy reading it. I did a search for feet & avatar, and came up with too many possibilities.

Awwwww. Kitty feets = super cute.

EDIT: I didn't intend to take anything away from Makel's cute feet, though.

I, for one, think you should post a picture of your antecubital fossa. In case we need to start an IV.
