Why did you pick your avatar?

Recommended Posts

Really, what was it about that little picture that made it have to be you.

I picked Bumpy from Bump in the Night. This was one of the Saturday morning shows that died when ABC got bought by Disney.

It was a hilarius claymation show that featured a green neurotic, hyperactive bed monster (Bumpy), a neatfreak (could be gay) monster named Squishy that lived in the back of the toilet, and Molly the plucky rag doll.

It was a well written show and it is a shame that it died when Disney took over and put their own cartoons on. That was the main reason I stopped watching Saturday morning cartoons.

:A Rant follows:

I think that the sole purpose of Disney acquiring ABC was to put their own crappy cartoons on Saturday, to make their shows look good by eliminating all the really good shows that used to be on. Luckily Reboot got picked up by Cartoon Network but I don't have cable.

mine is deadpool, and hes... well... deadpool.

he was a former mercenary for the canadian govt before he got diagnosed with cancer... experimental cancer treatment by said canadian govt mutated him giving him a mutant healing factor even better than wolverines. after that he got recruited into the weapon x program. after weapon x he went back to being a merc.

hes a serious badass... the main reason i picked him. his body is scarred form head to toe from the treatment so he wears a full body costume. he took on the juggernaut and black tom... and won by using brains. him and wolverine have gone round and round with eachother with neither having the real upperhand.

no adamantium, just a healing factor thru the roof and an intense knowledge of martial arts, swordplay, and firearms... my kinda villian

I think that mine is as obvious as they come!! LOL

As Grayfox says, Nuff said!!

As far as my sig avatar is concerned, Advil did that for me, wherever that bum has taken off to.

He took an actual picture of me, took an actual picture of a Gammulan from the manual, mixed them together, and voila, the closest thing you'll get to me as a Gammulan!!

well i chose to play different and be the first to roleplay an Empirian (with green eyes!). Sadly, I preferred the grey-skinned empirian look from bc3k than the blue duck-faced gorillas we have now *sigh*

I took the only empirian picture available, removed the beads, and put on a Galcom commander uniform, since I am part of Galactic Command - not the Empirian Starforce.

My avatar image is me one of the greatest battlecruiser commanders of all times.(j/k)

Seriously though the image is me. I was setting at my PC getting ready to fire up BCM and my wife snapped the picture. I just reduced the size and started using it as my avatar. The larger image is in my profile.

Mine is me complete in my Galcom uniform... although I should probably make an updated pic considering I have hair now...

I didn't think I'd be allowed to use my picture from the days when I used to do porn, so I picked one that most looks like what I look like today from the given supply of avatars. Plus, the guy is holding a beer, which speaks volumes about me.

Closest thing to a fairy at the time I guess. Once I find a true me, I will beg someone to help me get it on there.

I picked mine because it was the only thing recognizable in a forum with a learning curve steeper than most study type flight sims.

I have no idea how to change my system specs, which changed two months ago (Please, I am going to search after this post and figure it out on my own, and my flame suit is being fireproofed...), and how I got the login name rvs (my real initials and nom de plume) vs. the one I thought I was getting is a mystery to me.

Hank Hill suddenly became a very welcome sight...

No need to beg Echo, just send me the picture, I'll shrink it to a Avatar, and then we can upload it and you'll be set.

Just give me a shout, and we will take care of it!!

it's ironic actually, i was having troubles with the whole avatar thing because i wasn't sure what would best define me as a person, and then all of a sudden i saw this. well, it didn't quite define me as a person, but it's just as good because it looks exactly like me. what luck that it just happened to be sitting there in front of me the whole time.
