    What the hell does your avatar and user name mean?

    I've been on this forum for a little while and get accustomed to seeing everyone's avatars and user names. In a way, I sort of generalize who you might be as a person by the avatar and handle. I know I shouldn't, but I think a lot of people do.

    As Bruce Pluto points out later in this thread, I was prompted to do this when everyone found out Madster's a woman because we tend to associate the actual person being the avatar we see, even though it may be way off.

    This thread is to talk about your wacky avatar and user name. For example, here's me...

    ParkerD. "Parker" is my last name. I wanted to be just "Parker" but it was already taken. "David" is my first name. I didn't want to be "ParkerDavid," and so I just went with "ParkerD," because it had a nicer ring to it.

    My avatar is a self-portrait, slightly demented, that I did of myself in adigital painting.

    My subtitle: "Rise... Let me see your ridiculous face" was a quote from Kill Bill Vol. 2, by master Si Fu.


    What about everyone else?

    username: long strange story, too lazy to type it now, probably too lazy to type it later. No, there is no chance in hell you will guess it, make any assumption you like, you will be 120% off base

    avatar: same as the username... you're not gonna guess it. Even though all kinds of obvious assumptions could be made about both... trust me... you wont guess it ;P

    What the hell does your avatar and user name mean?
    my avatar is a close up of one of my sketchbook pages from about a yr ago. i dont really like it now, but it was one of my better sketches at the time

    |ntern is just a different wat to spell intern, which was my nickname in college, which was given to me by 2 of the seniors in the art program who were friends of mine. there was like 3 other "Mat"s in the art department, so intern it was

    I used to be a big RPG fan. And Shadow, from Final Fantasy VI was my favorite character. but that was always taken on forums. So his ninja dog's name is Interceptor. I went with that.. All my friends, and even my sister call me that now, lol. Or Inty.

    And my avatar.. well... who does'nt like bacon?

    Red face

    My User Name - Either something really gross like phlegm that has magical powers or Goo, the blue whale shaped girl from from Gumby, who is magic.

    My current avatar is the face from one of my old paintings.

    My signature is from an MST3K episode, "Manos, the Hands of Fate," where they say, "What this movie really needs is Marc Singer," but it's modified for interweb usage.

    All of which are lame, but whatever.

    Some friends and I had a BF1942 group.. not enough people for a clan. We all went as "X_Guy".. there was "Die_Guy", "That_Guy", "FarSighted_Guy", and I was "Some_Guy". I thought people would get a kick out of seeing that their "m14 put a hole in the head of some guy". That was the most recent usernick I had come up with before joining the forum. I think the rest is self explanatory.

    I'd explain mine to you, but it'd probably blow your mind...

    My name is Julianna, and so is my handle. I am not creative enough to think of anything unique.
    My avatar is me. Again, I do not have any unique pictures that I have drawn to use as my avatar to make myself more unique. I am not a unique and beautiful snowflake...

    I used to roleplay a paladin with wisdom score of 4 called Talmir. It was fun, and I needed a name to register so I chose that. The avatar is Cthulu, Elder god and soul eater. Fear him! FEAR HIM!
