It's the sole vestige of an idea I once proposed here that in the event of a stolen trailer, an e-mail alert might be sent to everybody belonging to the site, whose membership numbers in the thousands. Who really "sees" fiberglass trailers better than us, right? And even though 99% of the membership "list" isn't active here day-to-day, I thought nobody'd mind a "keep-your-eyes-peeled" message in their inbox.
The "avatar" is a sticker I designed for distribution to anyone that wanted one for their trailer. Sort of a warning to would-be thieves of an existing network of eyes.
Anyway, the idea went exactly nowhere, but I liked the sticker design so I kept it as my avatar....never did put one on my trailer, though.
