It seems that whenever we test file uploading in Campfire, someone inevitably sends this image:

Upload bird

I guess you might call it “flipping the bird.”

If someone hasn’t already uploaded that image to Cute Overload they should. This bird is going places.

First thing’s first: that bird needs an agent!

I normally try to avoid posting when I don’t have a point.

That is a really, really cute bird. I have a pet bird. His name is Kippy.

Does that count as a point?

It’s the unofficial Campfire mascot. Even its plumage is campfiry.

Does anyone else remember the old “dippy bird” java documentation tool?

If anyone cares, this is a peach-faced lovebird. See, even the name is cute. Also, it is a “lutino” mutant. Otherwise, it would be green.

It’s Noodle.

Just FYI - in regards to file uploading. We are using the 30 day trial of Campfire and are really liking it. Just one thing - I can’t delete uploaded files. I search and find the file in “Files and Transcripts” like is says on the FAQ page but no delete option appears when I rollover the file.

So, what about ‘bird flu’?

Tim 24 Feb 06

Horray for Noodle!

I, on the other hand, always use a picture of my cat! (Much like Louis W it would appear)

What is it that makes us upload pictures of animals?

A. Casalena 24 Feb 06

Ya, rly.


RyanA 24 Feb 06

I always use a picture of my dog!

Everybody laughs at that picture :)

Boris 24 Feb 06

Community brand building…

1. Post a reoccurring picture of bright, snarky bird.
2. Everyone feels it.
3. Someone says it looks like campfire.
4. Someone says it should be in the logo.
5. 37 puts it in the logo.
6. Logo has a customer relations story.

I think we are at step 3.
who votes for 4?

Campfire… bird
Campfire… bird

Nope. Not seeing it.

Campfire… fire
Campfire… fire

Yep. That that fits. Well, look at that! They used fire for the logo.

On the topic of the CF logo, I think it’s cute. :)

Anyone notice that you can hover over the greyscale CF logo in a chat and it rolls-over with the color version? XD

That is not peach 24 Feb 06

It’s Noodle!!!

obligatory monty python quote 24 Feb 06

And when the upload fails…

It is a dead parakeet! It has ceased to be! It has gone to meet the campfire in the sky!

emma 25 Feb 06

This bird is looking sooooo pretty……….very comely.

bannthis 25 Feb 06

How about setting the bird on fire in the logo?

AWarnack 26 Feb 06

This is my photo! :) I’m glad someone removed his, ermmmm, mess. Thanks for all the nice comments about him (her? I’m not actually sure.)
