Aww, still not in them.
Assfro and notsocoolguy but not me?
I figure you’re joking a bit, but just in case someone else comes by…
It’s not quite a popularity contest to be in a lot of these. Some users have just been on longer and have posted more stirring posts (rapturjesus gets mentioned because he’s notorious, not well-liked,) so they are well-known. Some of these are restricted to friends that some users know really well. But most of these try to match the personality of the user to a person in the picture.
For example, notsocoolguy has been a beast in the JFF board recently, so I knew him fairly well. Mellow and Olivia were not in my portrait, because I don’t really know them, even though they are massively popular and well-liked. I don’t have anything against either of them.
But I would suggest making your own portrait. It’s a lot of fun, and it’ll help people get to know you. It’ll also make people be more likely to return the favor.
RandomMan…you’ve done so much for me…I can’t thank you enough…
