why did you choose the Avatar you are using on TalkedAbout ?

I finally got around to putting a photo up, but it’s the same photo I use everywhere else. I took this picture because I got new glasses in a couple weeks back.

We __just__ watched the Xmas Futurama EPs, they're so good. In fact, they even do a genius riff on 'Xmas' ...

Fry : It really puts you in the Christmas mood.

Bender : What-mas?

Fry : Christmas! You know, X-M-A-S.

Leela : Oh, you mean *Xmas*! You must be using an archaic pronunciation, like when you say "ask" instead of "axe".

Well, back in November I got rid of the you-know-who-pacifier avatar as promised.

The Biden one was a placeholder. Before you-know-who, I used to switch out avatars all the time, so I'm going back to that.

This here is the power core of the Jupiter 2. I always thought this exterior part of the ship was cool.

Besides, it tells me that GIF animations work as avatars here. 😎

In my case, the user name, as it is the one I use in all the forums to which I participate. In some forums I keep one avatar consistently, while in other forums I change things around from time to time. This site is one where I switch avatars around when the mood strikes me.

Ah, the age-old question... What came first, the user name or the avatar?

In my case the usename, as, when I joined MR, they didn't allow avatars until you had reached 500 posts (a stance that was subsequently changed).

Actually, in those days, this was a source of considerable unhappiness.

In my own case, I didn't choose an avatar for ages after I had reached the required threshold of posts to be permitted to post one, and, I certainly didn't have an avatar ready to roll the minute I reached 500.

Actually, I think it was my participation in a WW game, several months, or a year, later, that prompted me to thin about an avatar.

In my case the avatar. Sort of. New forum means new name, so I figured I’d just use something I shot on my last trip.

Shot with a camera of course. As far as I know my lookalike is still alive, living happily ever after and all without worries. Well, leopards, lions, cheetahs and wild dogs could possibly be a problem, or drought and stuff, but let‘s stay positive.

Registered a long time ago too and it took forever to get enough posts for an avatar on MR. Ended up using a nice cat I’d seen. Felt appropriate given the naming convention of OS X back then.

Mine frequently changes with my mood. I easily get bored. I also live in the 4th padded cell on the right, lol.
Hi neighbor!
