    I see a lot of people's avatars, and a lot of them I think "what even is that?" Sometimes "that looks cool, what's that from?"

    Anyway, here's the place to go ahead and tell everyone what your avatar is/means, or point out that you went to the effort to change it! Since some people change it a lot, you might want to link to it directly/off-site.

    Okay, this gets in depth. I'm probably going to have to spoiler this.
    Okay, so first, there's a character in PSO2 who 'speaks in percentages' — as in they have a verbal tic that dictates that instead of saying "This is good." They'd say "This is 70% great.". At one point, post getting her ass WHOOPED, She mentioned being "200% mad", and so I had this on the brain.
    Then an in-game concert happened. This was about the time where Sega started shoehorning Vocaloid into everything.
    Pictured: Shit.


    Then this frame happened, BUT, the model wasn't loading, so it displayed the placeholder instead, giving me this: (Pictured: Existential crisis)


    Then I slapped some things on it (This is where the percentages came in)


    For fuller context: PSO2 has a a hardcoded model limit. If you have more 200 files (This is a vaguer concept than you think) loaded, they will not render, play, or exist in any way of note. To avoid this, PSO2 will display monochrome placeholder characters without any glamour on them to keep you from dropping out of world because the FLOOR didn't get mounted into memory. This is actually a problem that harkens back like fifteen years to PSO1, whcih had a similar hardcoded problem (many people suspect it uses the same engine :<), so it used significantly plainer placeholders.
