One of the moderators or administrators has been having some fun with our avatars and the text that goes in between the avatar and the username. He made me Forum Member of the Month and gave me an avatar of Spongebob Squarepants. :P

It's the equivalent of a cat leaving a dead bird on your doorstep. Regardless of how you feel about the gift, the moderator intends it as a gesture of respect or affection.

Still, its best not make any sudden moves. You don't want to spook that moderator just as they are starting to feel comfortable around you.

The Mac depot doesn't appear to be more than a placeholder at this time. There is no file.
I wouldn't hold my breath yet.

EDIT: who gave me this avatar picture? I didn't choose it. :huh:

So was the case with Bioshock 2 Remastered for 1,5 year but now the game is coming soon. If there were not any plans for Metro Exodus for Mac they wouldn't even create an empty depot. Sure it may not come but it's still a good sign, specially when the two previous games have been ported.

I had no avatar picture either and suddenly got a Swedish flag. I changed it to the game I'm currently playing, HL2, and now I'm dating a headcrab. :crying: :lol:

It was me.  I'm the culprit.  I think you guys are awesome forum members and I wanted to do something nice for you. You can delete or replace your avatar in your profile.  If you want me to delete your rank name or replace it with other text then please PM me and I'll get right on it.

I wouldn't say it's noseless. To me it looks more like a Stephen Fry nose.

However, what's most interesting to me is the fact you're not wearing any pants.

Pretty much sums up my life in terms of wrongness and/or not being prepared.

I made you Forum Member of the Month when you gave me the brilliantly evil idea of adding micro transactions to the forum.  Your avatar is a Spongebob picture as employee of the month hanging on the wall of the Krusty Krabb. I have secretly been electronically transferring quatloos from members accounts at the First Bank of Triskelion for posting, editing posts, using the delete key, using the PM system, punctuation, adding links to posts, and a vast host of other vital activities.  You have my eternal gratitude jos.

Fortunately I'm smarter than that silly King Arthur and his round table in search of the holy grail and could tell by your outrageous accent.

I have been in contact with a couple members who have deleted their new avatars and afterwards contacted any remaining members without avatars to avoid that mistake so the Cat was already out of the bag.

Atticus was an ancient philosopher circa 175 AD.  He was vehemently anti-Peripatetic so I cleverly deduced from your signature that Peripatetic was Greek for pants.  It was elementary school my dear Watson.

I rather date Alyx. I think she has a crush on me. I've been feeling it through the whole game. Headcrabs are so demanding and unpredictable. They jump on me all the time pretending they want to kiss me but then they suck the life out of me. I don't like rough love. I see why you dumped your headcrab girlfriend. :lol: :thumbup:

Well played, sir, well played. He was also a friend of Plato. I'm sure their drunken bar discussions were....interesting?

Awwwwwwww... a cuddly wuddly wittow teddy bear, but if you've ever heard Sneaky Snake's voice you'd swear it was coming out of a polar bear.  His voice would rattle my headset down around my neck.  I had to wrap duct tape around my head.
