Avatar communities are probably one of the biggest pillars of the pixel art community and honestly, I miss them. There's none really around anymore and if it's not there, make it there is how I see it. I wouldn't even mind making all the images for the site myself. Problem is, I have no idea how to code or how to even begin. The Crysandrea code is out there for public use but I have no idea how to use it and could use some help from someone who knows how to code and wouldn't mind taking on a project with me.
I just miss the old days of Gaia (when it was REALLY popular), Ernya, Solia, and even CDE if anyone remembers that (lol). So if you know anyone who can code PHP or even anyone who's been through the process before, feel free to shoot them my way.
