    Aloha peepz!

    Since I've seen multiple people here with avatars that consist of a white picture with some hard to get black pixel patterns on them...I was wondering how I could decode them somehow. :)

    Thanks and greets!

    Thanks for the reply, Rozza!

    Let me "decode" (sorry for the bad joke..) your question into a possible FAQ question...

    What's those funny looking broken TV-like avatars people have? I want one of those!
    Answer: Those are 2D Barcodes.There are numerous websites that you can use to create one for yourself. Just search up "2D Barcodes" on the internet.

    What do they mean? How can I decode them?
    Answer:
    If you own a G1, it can easily be done using the "Barcode Scanner" application.
    If you don't have a G1..then that's ok...there's an application you can download and use on your camera phone to decode the 2D barcode. Try this one.

    Thanks gentlemen,

    I have put search tags on this thread ... and may add a subject on 2D Avatar to the FAQ in the future...

    They also called QR codes IIRC.
