A few fun examples.
The Most Fun I Have All Day
By Kickntrue on 7/8/11
My day is mostly like yours (assuming you work in an office), except for one especially fun thing! I know you probably envision my job as really sexy, involving golf and doing a lot of "golfy" things. Let me tell you- while I do enjoy my line of work- in the end there are certain things that have to be done daily that end up being, well, work. Every day we go through every equipment edit, every course edit, every comment and all of the forums. We write posts, and review equipment (which believe it or not gets to be "a job").

BUT- there is one thing I do on a daily basis that is pure joy. I hope me telling you this only makes it better! To ensure that nobody uploads anything objectionable I must go through the process of seeing every avatar you guys upload or change on your accounts on a daily basis. Sounds pretty mundane, huh? Well- you guys should give yourselves more credit for your creativity.

Check out some of these gems from the last few days...

justinjzv, and of course the borderline allowable

How could you not want to be one of these guys friends?! Now listen- I'm not encouraging you to go change your avatar to something perverse, because I will delete it- and multiple offenses can get you banned from the site, but I just want you guys to know we watch over the site and you're what makes it enjoyable.

Have a good weekend. Nathan will be back next week to resume blogging duties. Sorry. About. That.

Back to more grammatical errors next week then?

I am not exactly sure what is going on in some of the "avatars" and that is likely a good thing. Nonetheless, thanks to you and Nathan for looking out for all of us.
mmontisano says:
the avatars are pretty small and sometimes hard to see. why can't they be enlarged in a div once clicked?
KVSmith59 says:
totally agree with badcaddy....you need to fix it so when you click on an avatar, it will pop up an enlarged view. I'm too old and can't see that great anymore, and when I have to zoom the webpage to 400% it kinda blurs the pics a tad. :)

I use "Oolong the Pancake Bunny" for my fantasy leagues. Decided to do something different here.

I agree with badcaddy and KVSmith59. Let us take a closer look at the avatars.
jwilder78 says:
100% agree with larger avatars! Just like the blog post, I really enjoy people's avatars, but you go to click on it and it expands by like 10% and I can't make out half of them.

Kickntrue, now that oob is part of the Skygolf big-time network, can't they store more than 30 pixels on the server? Super-size us!

KVSmith59, I used to be able to hit a golf ball pretty far, but now I can hit them clean out of sight.
mmontisano says:
but then again, i'm not sure i want to see what's going on in justinjzv's avatar. it looks like not everything stayed in Vegas...

homermania says:
I drew mine! Look at me!!
KVSmith59 says:
lol. my friend has an unusual looking green as an avatar. Would be a bitch to putt on that: www.oobgolf.com/golfers/Junior
meatball413 says:
thanks for including me in this column.
by the way Garro's "the shocker" is quite priceless...lol
Kickntrue says:
@jwilder78- BE FAIR! We give you 36 pixels!
jwilder78 says:
Ha, you're right, you give us a full 120% more than my estimate!

If I could just have a few more, though, I could make out that prehistoric donkey in your logo...in all seriousness, what is it?
jwilder78 says:
(I meant 120% of my estimate, but you get the picture....)
