If DT was actually Santa, he would look like
Ah, the age-old question... What came first, the user name or the 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.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.
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.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.
Hi neighbor!Mine frequently changes with my mood. I easily get bored. I also live in the 4th padded cell on the right, lol.
