    old avatar

    Looking for my old avatar, I will pay 4 silver for it currently, perhaps more! "There's an old saying, if you love something, throw it away" https://img.ifunny.co/videos/d61140ab7a9fbb6463ae6158586668dfb34ac457285c8c06ddea3663683e02f0_1.mp4
  2. Hello, I have been thinking about this for awhile. Mainly because I came back to the game with the avatar feature already being unlocked. I remember it being the FIRST thing that I really wanted to get, because it individuated my account. In those days, your avatar did not get sent back to the vault after inactivity (otherwise I'd have a really cool avatar, I don't remember it, but it must have been really cool). Something I realized while playing on my alt is that it is hard to get to the avatar option (unless he's been buying in the wrong category...). He has spent probably 11 credits with the sole purpose of moving through unique features to get to the avatar option. He still isn't there. Granted he has hasn't spent any money yet. This is important because choosing an avatar is one of the greatest ways to increase fidelity of a player to a game. To make that player invested in the game. I literally helped a friend write his Master's thesis on this. In his experiment he had taken a basic MMORPG game (with the help of some coder friends). He had (I think his n for each group was like 30) 30 people play the game without selecting an avatar, and 30 play with selecting an avatar. I can't find his published thesis. But I do remember that he got statistically significant results that the people who selected an avatar answered the survey saying that they were interested in playing longer. Now I think his alpha was .05, so it was a typically lenient study. However I think that says a lot. Now, since I couldn't find his study, and I don't have free access to psychology journals anymore, this is the only study I could find. https://cyberpsychology.eu/article/view/4340/3412. It supports the same hypothesis from my friend's master's thesis. Though we can draw multiple other conclusions from the results of this study, such as perhaps letting players choose their border (such as Chewett unveiling the old "dark border" might actually be worth an investment, ie letting player's pay in shop for changing color schemes might actually be something people would want <I really think they would want this, if for no other reason than their screenshots look different from everyone else's>) Now all of this to say is that I think that when players unlock that 5 credit bonus on GI, that an avatar should be one of the first things they should get. No, I don't think they should unlock it within that 5 credits. But I think having it be one of the things they can SEE at the bottom of the page and it plainly says "Avatar" on it (I don't know because I still have yet to unlock it) might give them something to strive for. Then they might either use free credits (which helps the game even if they quit), pay (same outcome but better), or do both and keep playing (obviously the better outcome). Putting the avatar option in sight might be a good choice. TLDR: Move Avatar option up in shop so new players can see it, not buy it at first. Click the hyperlink, scroll down to the conclusion section of the paper and see why. Answer the poll as well to see what MD community thinks. If you select other, please explain in your post why. Better yet, explain in a post about your choice regardless, give voice and more depth to your answers.
  3. I currently have no knowledge how much it is or if it's even purchasable, but I would like to buy/acquire one for a project. Send me a forum message if you have an offer.
  4. So as the topic says, I'd like to buy or commission an avatar for Esmerelda. She is a shy bookworm who spends most of her time in the MDA Archives. If you have an avatar in the shop that you think might suit her, or if you are skilled enough to draw one for her, please send me a copy of the avatar in FORUM PM. I will pay in creds as Esme doesnt really have gold of that sorts.
  5. Greetings, I'm in search of this avatar: [b][color=#003366][url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=3890"]http://storenow.net/my/?f=3890[/url][/color][/b] [b][color=#003366][url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=3892"]http://storenow.net/my/?f=3892[/url][/color][/b] Anyone with knowledge of their whereabouts, please post here or send me a Pocket Mosquitoe. -- I'm also in search of a gravedigger-like avatar. There is no specific avatar, so if someone would draw one for me, I'd probably buy it (depending on looks). If someone has an existing gravedigger avatar, I'd be willing to buy that as well. Details: Wielding shovel -- Selling Blackthorn's avatar: [url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=3893"]http://storenow.net/my/?f=3893[/url] I enjoy the avatar, but it does not relate to my role. Will not sell if I'm not happy with the offers. Selling for: Coins; Credits (combined offers are appreciated) 1gc = 10 credits [b]C/O: Brulant - 1 gold + 8 silver + 10 credits[/b] Hedge
  6. The following avatars are up for grabs [attachment=3613:avatar1.GIF] (click image for a larger size) [attachment=3614:avatar2.GIF] I accept coins and credits as bid. Rate: 1 Credit >= 2 Silver (the value of 1 credit is 2 silvers but I'll choose over credits if the top offers have the same value). Minimum bid is 2 silver or 1 credit as I can return them to the Shop is no body is interested. To bid, use this format: avatar ID - offer, example: 235 - 1 credit The bidding for each lot will close after exactly 24 hours after the last bidding of that lot. Update: [s]235 - 5 sc (Anonymous) FORFEIT[/s] [s]312 - 5 sc (Anonymous) FORFEIT[/s] 389 - 5 sc (Annonymous) SOLD 417 - 5 sc (ZenTao) SOLD
  7. Avatar shop has always offered me a choice between 8 avatars. Recently I noticed it was showing only 7, although it says there are 668 available avatars in stock. I believe it's not normal (but please correct me if I'm wrong). I checked with a few people and Burns appear to have the same problem. I thought it could be because I recently bought one avatar from the shop, but Burns did not for 2 years +. I haven't tried shuffling the selection. If needed for some testing, please let me know.
  8. Hey all! I have a little confusion. I don't want this to come across as a super impatient type thing, I am just generally more confused and want to make sure i do this right. Here is the deal: I uploaded a new avatar. I wanted it to replace my current one (Though if I could keep my current in my vault that would be neat too). So I selected use as personal. After a while, it was rejected, but with the message "Send high resolution scan to [email]". Slightly confused, I went ahead and sent it from the email linked to my MD account. I think this was about a week ago, but I am just not sure what I should do next. Should I go ahead and remove the rejected one? Should I get some sort of email reply or something that lets me know the next steps? Thanks! Krioni
  9. Hello. I've been looking through avatars, because I enjoy the history of them. I purchased a shroom-like avy, and though I like it a lot, it doesn't have anything to do with my character, so I'm selling it. I'll accept whatever you have to offer for it, coins, credits, creatures, items...I don't really care. It is an auction, and I'll run it for a few days, perhaps longer, so no specific ending date yet. Here's the avatar: [url="http://storenow.net/my/?f=3271%20"]http://storenow.net/my/?f=3271 [/url] (There's a link because I couldn't get the image to work properly) This is the history I have on it, received from someone else... The last twelfth generation avatar, artist unknown but most likely BlackThorn. There is little more I can tell you about this, as it is not in my records anywhere, and therefore was most likely grabbed by someone who went inactive almost straight after. Auction open now ----------------------- Hedge
  10. Hi guys.. I have a problem about my avatar. I have uploaded my own avatar but after a few hours i realized that that avatar does not have any "MD" letters in it so i tried to upload the new one (with MD) but to my surprise my avatar (the one without any MD) got approved. I understand that avatars are unique and should not have any similarities at all so i was wondering, should i upload the new avatar or is it legal for me to use an avatar without MD in it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance! I have attached a screen shot
  11. Hello, I've lost an avatar that I uploaded. I changed it out, because I'm going through the credit shop, and I didn't know I'd lose it, I assumed it would be stored in my vault. It's a man holding a walking stick, magnifying glass, and a piece of paper, wearing a fedora, and a trench coat. If you see it, please purchase it, and I will repay you with coins. Thank you, Hedge (I just noticed the warning on the shop...I apologize for my ignorance.)
  12. Hello - My recently acquired avatar has gone missing in the last day or two. I didn't try to change anything, it's just gone. It was a dragon reared up on it's hind legs (hence the dragon-related mood panel postings...). I don't have the ID handy but I believe the author was Sir Kamil. Please let me know if anyone knows how I can recover it. - Phinneas
  13. Hello all - In light of my recent misadventures with the Avatar shop, I've decided to stretch my lacking art skills into an attempt at drawing my own... And here's the result! The artwork is all mine. I'm not confident the concept is entirely original, however (I've got a niggling twitch at the back of my mind that I've seen something similar on MD). Please comment on both aspects if you will. (The .jpgs would show inline while editing, but I couldn't post for some reason, so I had to add them as attachments). dragon.jpg is a larger version, avatar.jpg is at 100x160. I'm thinking too much may be lost at that size... Thoughts, criticism, input all welcome! Thanks in advance. - Phinn
  14. This morning I discovered that the avatar I'm currently using was not an original one. [b]ID: [/b]589 [b]Author: [/b]Lord Beta Wolfeyes (see attached image) Below, the url of the original one: http://fc01.deviantart.net/fs41/f/2009/029/8/0/Devil_in_a_suit_by_staino.jpg I sent an e-mail to contact@magicduel.com and returned the avatar to the shop. lashtal
