What AVEN needs most

Recommended Posts

Davey

I figured it out: the thing that AVEN needs most of anything in the world.

Ready for it?

A CAKE EMOTICON.

Okay, I'm kidding.. the thing AVEN really needs most is an unlimited expense account, available to all members. But a cake emoticon would be cool too. I tried to make one, but it's BLOODY DIFFICULT to work at 15 x 15 - and it looks like flaming crap. Does anyone have the skill to do such a thing?

lol Davey! :D

Hmmm... unlimited funds, or a cake emoticon...? Decisions, decisions!

Yeah, working with so few pixels is a pain in the ass, ain't it? Takes me back to the days of designing sprites on my Commodore 64! I'll have a crack at it though :wink:

How does this look? ----------> 12273664_l.gif

If its any good, then I'll mail it to AG and see if he'll add it to the list :wink:

Hmmm... the white doesn't really stand out against the fuschia background very well, does it? Maybe we should have a more yellow-y topping?

Wow! That was fast. It's also quite good. Mine looked like a mush of brown and black pixels (serves me right for trying to do chocolate :D. I like it - anyone else have comments?

Regarding your edit (came up when I hit preview :D): I was thinking that.. also that it's a lot less cartoon-y than the others and doesn't seem to fit. Consider the difference between :vis: and a real medal (or :D and a real person). They're caricatures.. yours is nearly photorealistic. Is it possible to make it a little rounder, brighter.. emoticon-er? Awesome work though.

Yeah, I'll try and give it a bit of a cartoon-y outline or something. That'll help :)

Awesome, Liver! I like both the first and second cakes. The second one is a little easier to see with the black outline. Davey, I didn't think the first one was bad at all! Photorealistic, pshaw.

WOW!!

*drools over Liver's fantastic looking cake*

Yes! That should be an emoticon. :D

What the hell kind of asexuals are we without a cake emoticon? Sheesh!

I didn't say it was bad, Fluffy, I made a suggestion. Which Liver took - and it looks better for it.

Is there a connection between asexuality and cake? Or is this just something fun everyone likes?

I will give 1000 AVENpoints to whoever figures out how the whole cake obsession got started on AVEN.

1% - No, there's no connection. :) It's just been a running gag that AVENites, for whatever reason, love cake.

Well, Tressa, let's just take a look-see...

Back in June of 2003 we had what may have been the first thread devoted entirely to food, called "Ice cream!"

http://asexuality.org/discussion/viewtopic.php?t=756

And while there were mentions of cake on the site before this, it seems to me that the real focused fascination with AVEN as a cake-friendly place started around here...

http://asexuality.org/discussion/viewtopic...ight=cake#15271

A search for "cake" in the archives pulled up 429 matches (not including this very post.) Funny, I thought there'd been more.

Here's the very first mention of cake on AVEN (that I found, anyway):

A big ball of orange chocolate, MMMMMMMM! They're fun to smash to get the slices.

My dream chocolate sundae is German chocolate ice cream with chocolate chips mixed in. Then you must have hot fudge topping over chocolate syrup. If you have baking chocolate powder, add that between the syrup and the ice cream.

And if you're still hungry, a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting to go with it.

Oh yeah, can't forget to incude the chocolate sprinkly things over the whole thing.

I have WAY too much time on my hands... :roll:

Those threads were fun to read again!! Particularly the ice cream thread! Hard to believe that was almost exactly a year ago...

and I started it, woohoo, I'm gonna go down in history... lol

shall we say, cake is the official food and pastime of AVENites, lol

Actually, they're not REALLY AVENpoints. They're actually just InanePoints. :(

You can redeem them to make me do stuff for you.

500 points - I will pat you on the head.

1000 points - I will dance just for you.

2000 points - I will become your obsessed fan.

5000 points - ??? (Mystery prize)

Oooh! So I can buy... 2 pats on the head, or a dancing Tressa? :D

Hmmm.... I think I'll have to go for the Inane-dance please!

*Waits expectantly*

(Hmmm.... if you're waiting for something then aren't you automatically expectant anyway? Is expectantly even a word??)

Expectantly is definitely a word (though who knows what Word has to say about that :? ) but I think... maybe... you could wait for something without really believing it's going to happen? Maybe?

So does 1000 points earn us all a Tressa show or is this a private showing for Liver? :wink:
