I think last year (or the year before that) I was shocked to see that people actually voted my avatar in their GaiAcademy Awards contest and qualified in the top slots...and later was among the winners.
That was a shock to see. To know that I ditched the arenas and get awarded for my looks anyway made me feel justified in my decision. However, that was when you'd still needed a bit
of creativity to create something. Nowadays we have to many mods, I'm not sure how to manipulate them right. sweatdrop
