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.

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

SIG: Don't like sigs.

Username: I think I was high when I joined this site and thought "Woah dude, 8 is like the symbol for infinity and an asterisk looks like the big bang. And they're on teh same button. Sweet."

Avatar: She's a stripper from the 1920s, and who doesn't like those? Some of them were your great-grandmothers.

Signature: Adywan mentioned receiving Wampa fur in the mail and I believe I commented that if he needed someone to comb it free of charge, I'm up for it. Or something. I think I was high then too. I used to smoke a lot of pot.

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 :-)

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.
