Not the exact picture from before, but...
Spoiler: Angel Avatar image aka the AP mascot
When did this happen?
I absolutely adore the new avatar mascots. Awww!!
Good improvements, Keep it up !!
Simple, clearcut, colour options, nicely thematic and even manages to achieve "cute". Very good.
It was a much worse version of this, yes, with the old Anime-Planet 2.0 font that said "anime-planet".
I like my new default avatar. I got the blue one (which is good because blue is my favorite color).
Eh, it was cute back in the day.
All these developements are nice
Yeah, I had been wondering where the other one went.. Was kinda sad when it got changed, so I went and uploaded my own now.
Aww so cute! They're perfect!
They look nice :)
I think its ironic my most favourite site (anime-planet) has one of my least favourite themes. Space! It looks childish. I think a Teru teru bōzu Mascot delivers more of an impact with its cutesy look and its dark history than our current Planet-kun mascot. He looks cute but forgettable.
- Sothis. V4.5 is not appealing to me at all when compared to V2 more matured theme albeit dated look. Just my two cents.
Would it be ok to recreate this image into the old default avatar for further use? Because I really, really liked it (as well as the old Anime-Planet look). Just wouldn't want to violate a copyright or something. Or if anyone's got the old default saved somewhere I'd use that.
Also was this a character from an anime/manga or was it drawn specifically as Anime-Planet mascot?
The old avatar was created for Anime-Planet/is copyrighted yes
I'm sorry to hear that, but we don't plan to change the brand back to the archaic and 90s-looking V2 ;) hopefully we'll win you over eventually!
l o v e l y !
I'm not seeing anyone's default avatars in forums. For example in LilianaToreen's post all I see where an avatar should be is a white question mark on a grey background. Its like this on both Firefox and Chrome for me. Is this normal or is there something wrong on my end?
