Katrika should be either this or this. Meta Four was using this one as the most recent one.

Most if not all of Meta's avatars pertain to Gunnerkrigg Court, Homestuck, Sonic the Hedgehog or Cave Story, if it helps.

On this forum, it probably doesn't, does it? tongue
In uffish thought
@ Katrika: Nope – that's true of all the mods, for me at least. I remember seeing a thread where everyone was discussing the new avatars you got for your mod hats, but that was months ago and I assumed it had been discontinued.

Edit – ninja'd twice:

[up][up] Oh, I remember seeing Meta's now. Thanks! And I think Katrika was on the first one of those.

[up] Quite.

The mod hat avvies still are in use. I think it's just that the pink background is the overriding visual element of a mod hat post, and the avvie isn't noticed as much. Incidentally, the mod hats avvies are not being switched.

So Morven ⇨ Meta Four, Fighteer ⇨ Katrika, Ironeye ⇨ ccoa.

Something's up, then, at least on my end; I've never seen one. Do you still have, was it Napoleon's hat?

I'm enjoying it. Greatly.

^ Lord Nelson's hat, actually. Look at post 54. The avvie is stretched vertically, because it's matched to the size of the whatever avvie is currently in use, and Fighteer's Nebula is taller than my normal fox.

Saw this note on Home Page:
Do not change this page. We are watching.

I think it's funny. smile

@ Telcontar: Could be a bug, because the mod hats are working fine.

Wasn't somebody else having that problem earlier? I can't find the thread.

Let me expand a bit on that, Booky. It's not affecting the way anything works. We've gone over four hours with no one complaining about it yet, aside from some mild confusion over it not being 4/1 yet for people. On the whole, it seems to be amusing without being annoying or disruptive, and that, to me, is the hallmark of a good April Fool's prank.

To me, post 54 is by Madrugada, pink background, user title of "With Mod Hat On", and has Fighteer's normal galaxy.

And thanks for the second hint.

I love the pranks. Out of interest (though you probably won't say), are there any beyond Mod Switcheroo and the home pages?

Look at post 54.
Erm... that mod post still displays your Fighteer avatar.

In fact I haven't seen them use the mod-hat avatars in quite some time now.

I think the pranks are fun. grin

Hmmm. We ave a bug, then. I'm seeing it with my mod hat avvie. Let me do some checking...

Anything more in the works? to quote shima: "Maybe." Further the deponent sayeth not.

I thought we got rid of the Mod Hat Avies.

Huh.
I haven't noticed them, so I can't really tell you if they still work. sad

I wonder if Fast Eddie is still asleep/busy?

I see the mod hat avvie. Odd.

Do you see the lineart cat, or the French Maid Cat Girl in this post?

I see a lineart cat there. Didn't we get rid of the modhat avvie/normal avvie distinction?

I don't see the mod hat avvies from this account. Looks like they're only visible to mods.

Herp derp should have refreshed the page
