A new day is approaching. (That's today's sunrise from out in Long Island.) I indicated earlier this week that I (er... we) are open to updating the Observation Deck avatar. I've done a fair amount of fiddling around with it the past couple of days, but I've always returned it to the latest iteration. Mostly because Crashed is wearing the hat now, and his avatar doesn't scale down too well.

So, put your suggestions into the comments. We'll slowly rotate avatars, unless there is an overwhelming favorite to be used. In which case, we might just use that most of the time. I suppose some ground rules should be in place.

- I'm averse to just using the io9 cyborg that's back on the mainpage. Variations on it are okay.

- The picture or avatar should scale down (or up) to a 50x50 pixel square fairly well.

- More rules/clarifications to be added if required.

What do you want to see up there?
