So either you're too lazy to check for yourself if we've already told everyone when to expect them, or you're just too self important to be caught bumping an old thread.
To set you straight, "exalted one", I did scan through the forum first and all of the threads pertaining to avatars (that I noticed) had been locked. God forbid that I miss one and start another topic, 'cause that's the FIRST time that that's happened on this forum
Further, you have not told everyone when to expect them, and the tenor of your response implies that either you're too lazy to pony up a decent response, or you're just so self-important that you are obliged to throw your weight around at the slightest provocation.

We've got them ready, and they rock, but every time someone mentions them we have to reset the countdown. We were halfway there this time, until you ruined it. Way to go.
I'm not going to take the heat for spoiling the surprise as I had nothing to do with implementing or hiding the rules to this little game of yours. As far as that goes, you are the forum moderators and you may do as you please, but don't point the finger when you're the one who ruined it.
Here's a suggestion: Let's ditch this behavior of publicly belittling folks over honest mistakes and minor infractions. This happens all the time, and frequently comes from the forum staff, which has always perturbed me (ALWAYS, not only when it comes down on me).
