I was thinking about doing a group of the 50 states and making the avatars represent the 50 states of the United States of America.
Examples:
-Oregon = Beaver/forest
-Wyoming = Buffalo
-California = Hollywood
-Texas = long horns
-New York = Big City


Whatcha think? I'm just looking for input at the moment smile

Alrighty! Since people seem to like this, we'll go ahead and do it! We'll decide on a week later one when we can get more people involved. I will list all 50 states (and neighbors) and put names next to them as they are chosen. Now it can be anything relating to the state (i.e. animals, landmarks, culture, landscape, etc.)

Alaska - 42rd
Arizona
Arkansas

California - IIDarknessChosenII

Connecticut
Delaware
Florida
Georgia

Illinois - cherub_Shagami
Indiana - A Redhead Angel

Montana
Nebraska
Nevada

I think it is an interesting idea. Would the users be picking what they think best describes the state or would there be a list compiled?

First of all, your sig is hilarious lol

Anyway, they could go by what they think best describes the state, sort of a "stereotype". The group could then be called "State Stereotypes"

Thank you. I like to make smiles.

It sounds interesting. You could always have a sign-up and when you get 50, randomly assign the states. That way everyone has a fair shot at getting a state they want, no one bitches that they didn't get it because they didn't sign-up in time and everyone has to do the same amount of research. With that being said, I am not sure how people would feel about any reasearch that would go into it if the states were assigned or user picked.

That would be a good idea. Thanks for your input smile I don't know if I can get 50 people to sign up lol I may just let them pick their states, or a state that they know very well, so maybe they won't feel like it's a chore.
