Hello Bench members.

We are offering a new perk for our H.O.F members. Player Jerseys!!!

For now there are a handful of baseball players to choose from. Each sport will be divided into it's own section just like we do with the team logos (just to make things a bit easier to find).

If you have your own that you would like loaded there is only a couple of requirements. Must be no bigger than 150 x 150 pixels and in jpg or gif format. Please double check and make sure the player isn't already available. PM me when you are ready and I will give you my email address.

If you need help contact Kekamba, he has offered to assist with requests. Please give him time to complete these as he is doing this in his spare time.

Thanks,
Bench Staff

What a great idea. I will be sending a pm to get a George Brett avatar.

I probably should chime in that Im working on another batch of baseball jerseys now. Some players maybe hard to find and take time before I can get one if I even can. Prime example is I cannot find myself a Scott Rolen Reds jersey. And dont kid yourself for a second that was the very first one I looked for even before I went to the coach's about implementing this. On another site Im using his Cards jersey but I again I dont want to send multiples of one guy in diffrent uniforms in that may never be used.

With that said some players have multiple options for those guys Im more waiting for a request then sending in 5 jerseys of 1 guy to be used. Some of those players I can easily get but not sure on a team are Dave Winfield & Gary Sheffield.

It looks like its going to storm today so if the weather doesnt kill my connection. I'll attempt to get this second batch done and a small batch of NFL jerseys.

Another update, while looking for George Brett I wondered upon a great website for this. Im now in the process of sending in another batch of baseball and will only add as requests comes in from here on out. They are a little diffrent but I honestly think they look really nice. They remind me of jerseys you'd see hanging on some outfield walls of stadiums than actually jerseys plus they save within the 150x150 guidlines. Im now going to attempt to get some NFL done as it took me all of 30 minutes to get this batch done.

Very cool idea, I really like the look of the new avatars:)

I was about to pm you I seen ones I can use for Negro players as well. Not sure who all to use as default so I'll probably only send in ones that are requested. I did run across Paige and Gibson no name plates though. Any requests?

Champs96ws
07-08-2010, 02:07 PM
Some changes are being made to the available selections. If your jersey avatar goes missing, please go back into your usercp and select the one you want.


Also if you have a request be patient, we are adding them as fast as we can.

Kekamba
07-08-2010, 04:00 PM
When sending a request if the player has played for more than one team or in the WBC let me know what jersey your looking for.

Also, all requests Im able to fill will be forwarded in lots of 5 or more for the time being. Im doing this because I feel there is alot of players you guys might wants who's not yet listed. And untill we are able to get the majority of them done I dont want to be sending alot of emails in a day. I will try to respond and let you know if Ive found your player if I have it shouldnt take more than a day to accumlate enough to forward.

Thanks

The new avatars look great. Just another reason to aspire to HOF status. Any chance we can "pre-order" one in anticipation of reaching the HOF in the near future?

If so, I would like to put a request in for Kirby Puckett. If not, I will ask again in about 100 posts.

I will be deleting the jersey avatars with the white background and replacing them. The only issue is that the replacement avatar will not have a name on the back if that given players jersey didn't have a name. It will be like an authentic player jersey (just like the Yankees have no name on the back, some of the older players will be the same)

Thanks,

Great job, these are an awesome addition to the site especially since banners are not allowed in signatures.

I want to put in a request for a Paul O'Neill #21. There are three O'Neill Supercollectors here on The Bench, the most of any player.

If it makes it easier, I have a jersey which I use on the heading of my personal website. It is courtesy of jerseydatabase.com:

There is no option to be able to view them without actually using them. So you just need to put in the time and reach the HOF.

You can see the ones the members have correct?

I did look for Ozzie Canseco and had no luck. Id venture to guess they'd have a Jordan baseball though. Alot of late 80 early 90 semi-star/regional stars are harder to locate. Some day Im going to venture into learning how to make these from templates and then it will open the door on guys like Ozzie Canseco, Ray Lankford and Ron Gant.

I dont think there is anything "wrong" with it except for the precedent it might set. The mods work very hard making this a great site. If they allow this request, I could see a flood of similar requests that would require even more work that they might not have time to do.

Changing user ID's isn't allowed, There is no need for compromise (see Below)


Any chance of me getting this avatar since I couldn't change my user id?

Changing your user id is something we have never allowed here(except in the most extreme cases (please see the FAQ for information on that), and has nothing to do with the possibility of getting any avatar you want.

Thank You Jeff.


If people make their own photos and just post it like I did to have it added, then adding it to a misc. folder for avatars shouldn't be that big of a deal I wouldn't think.

Our policy on avatars has always been allowing members to use avatars we have uploaded only, if we wanted to allow people to upload their own avatars the system would be set that way.

Do you use other trading boards? Have you seen all of the unnecessary avatars that people upload? GIFs and whatnot? The Bench has always strived to keep the site clean/easy to use/ and uncluttered Mainly pertaining to avatar choices and Images in Signatures.

The introduction of Player Jerseys was the first time we ever specifically took requests for avatars. I have done my best to keep up with requests but unfortunately avatars fall to the bottom of my priority list as far as My daily Bench work is concerned.

There are over 1000 Sports related avatars that we currently have uploaded for our users to choose from. I have already put more time into avatars than I ever wanted to.

Your request for the four team avatar is currently denied, as I do not want precident set for me to have to upload avatars from any city that has 3-10 Sports teams within a city. Not everyone can make their own.

My suggestion would be to use a basketball avatar for basketball season, Football for football, etc. Like many of our users already do.

There is a reason The Bench is the BEST. The Mod Team is EXCELLENT at what they do. (for FREE by the way!) This site is run as well, if not better than any site of it's kind. Why some people are always looking to change it, I'll never understand. I get tired of seeing it, so I can't imagine what it's like for the Mods. This site will be here for our kids because of the way it is ran.

Thanks
