There was a thread similar to this around a while back, but it wasn't as concise as this one.

Anyway, I always find myself wondering why people chose their usernames or avatars, or what they mean, and I always want to ask but there's nowhere to do so.  Hence - this thread.

Username:  is Luke's call-sign in A New Hope

Avatar:  I GIS'd "Red Five" and the lego rebel came up.  It doesn't have much to do with anything, but it seemed very avatar-y.

Title:  My title is an amalgam of Radiohead and Star War (via the song "Fake Plastic Trees")

Signature:  I change my sig frequently, it's always just a quote I'm fond of at the time.

Username:  Original idea for it is that it's a Mexican Penguin that joins the Green Lantern Corps

Avatar:  Slippery Jim DiGriz, better known as The Stainless Steal Rat, a truly awesome book series.

Title:  It's from a scene in Doctor Who, where the master gases a room full of people and one guy says 'You're Insane!' and the master gives a thumbs up.

Signature:  I've gone back to my traditional Ric Olie quote. 'cos Ric Olie is cool.

Username : "Duracell" and "Energizer" fused.

Avatar : I always liked how, in the EU, there were multiple lightsaber colours available to darksiders and lightsiders both. When AOTC came out, this cliched "red = bad, blue & green = good" lightsaber colour rule was firmly established and the EU quickly adopted it. I've been pissed off about it ever since. Giving a Nazgul a green lightsaber is my small way of defying the system.

Title : ties into the reasoning behind my avatar.

Signature : relates how the fantards on TF.N will spit on you if you don't allow the thought police to shove the official canon up your ass.

USERNAME:For years my net handle was "Booster Bronze" which was my rapper name in my college years, which itself was a play off my favorite superhero, Booster Gold. Eventually I needed a change, so I shortened it.

AVATAR: Piett is my favorite character in ESB, plus some minor modifications to the pic.

TITLE: Lyrics from the National Anthem.

SIG: Don't like sigs.

MJPollard's sig says:

I've always preferred this version:

There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary, and those who don't care.

IT'S MY TRILOGY, AND I WANT IT NOW!

Name: I used to be Lord__Vader (obvious reasons) but when I decided to start releasing my projects, I wanted something more personal, so I asked Jay if he could change it to Harmy (what my homies call me :-D )

Title: Until I recently changed it to "Han D. Solo" (quite crude, I know, but I just like it - and Falcon kinda looks like a hand too) it had been: "I used to be Lord_Vader but now I'm redeemed." For obvious reasons - to avoid confusion after the name change.

Avatar: Well, that's me :-) But it used to be this:

Again, it's quite obvious why :-)

Signature: Used to actually contain a list of my projects with links to their threads but because it somehow kept f*cking up the layout of the forum, I had to find another solution. Anyway, like Frink said: Self-Promotion, Baby :-)

 

And to Frink: I'd never heard of TV's Frank before I read your post but now that I know, here's a new avatar for you:

Username: Comes from my middle name, extra X is just there since Lex was already in use here.

Avatar: Just threw there something, I like classic Star Wars and it's great art. I could change it something but haven't come up with anything cool.

Title: Classic SW again and I think it's a really cool and mythical concept. Also it describes me in many ways.

Signature: Again, threw something. Don't really care what reads there.
