Question, April 9: How many different avatar images have you used on the Reaper forums?

Two. The first one is a tattoo design I found on the internet and likes because it was a dragon and it was an s.

 

I suppose it still is both those things.

 

It is also still visible, as I shrank it down and placed it in the corner of my new and current avatar in order to alleviate the "wait, who are you?" confusion that accompanies a new "face." The current avatar was taken the evening we received Bones I.

And looks just like you too.  I'm not sure who the guy you are wrapped around is though.

Two for sure, maybe three.  I've been floating in and out of here for quite a while and the early days are kind of fuzzy.

Just one, really. I don't generally change them once I settle on something I like, and Blee over there has been a decent representation of me on these forums.

So, no reason to change unless I do another drawing of her.

My first week here, it was an image of Tyrande as a placeholder.

Then I drew out young Morihalda, I used that for a few years.

I briefly used my drawing of Alan Rickman when he passed then went back to young Mori.

Last autumn, I used this silly site called bebinator to make this current avatar.

 

I uh, got purple hair last Christmas? Did I ever mention that? It was a really long winter.

I probably should have updated my avatar to reflect that. Meh. It's Libby (me) who has the purple hair, not my character Mori. :)

one.

 

I did change the color from Black and White to Blue and White when I was inducted into Reaper's Hall of Fame in April 2013, but the image itself is the same as when I joined in August 2002.

Let's see... the old guy one I first started with, then there were several versions of Snake (Kurt Russell), and maybe something else, then there was the Nuclear Krill one, and one or two Sabretooth tigers before I finalized on this one.  At first it didn't seem to matter, but soon you realize that you look at the avatar for recognition of the poster more often than you do the name... and so I locked it in and left it alone.

 

Edit: Oh... so to clarify... um... Twenty!!!

I believe I'm still at one.

 

The only caveat is that sometimes I put up a temporary version of the same one that wears a festive hat I photoshopped over (Santa hat; pumpkin head; etc.).

Only one, but in the Glory Days of the Republic, a hundred servants would change a thousand avatars at the drop of a hat!

I've used two. Both Haldir of course. I took the image from the old Decipher Cards LoTR ccg.

 

When the board upgraded a few years ago I decided it was time for a change. 1st pic was when the Fellowship first meets him, 2nd one was when he arrives to help in Two Towers.

This is my third and it's sort of a place holder until I figure out something I really want to use. First was an eastern european warrior from the 12th or 13th century. 2nd was my special forces gopher because I was looking for something cool from the prairies. Got tired of being a rodent and was fooling around with an avatar maker and came up with this. His expression is kind of what I feel like since the start of March. The mouth and droopy ears are so suitable.

Two.  Both varations on glowing eyes.  The first one was Green Spawn eyes, the current ones are Richard's from Looking For Group.  It reminds me to lighten up.

Just the one; re, it took me FOREVER to figure out how to load the pic. I don't ever want to have to do that again.

AND the Little Guy suits me fine. He is something I made from scratch. PLUS he reflects my attitude on life & inner

being; that is he looks nuts.

 

He doesn't look nuts at all.  He looks like he's dealt with the rest of the world, for all 36 hours, all within 60 seconds.  He looks downright sane given the circumstances!  And think of the creative bursts that one can garner from that!  No wonder your world is so magnificent!

I don't get it - why would I have an image of the Avatar on the forums?

 

 

 

We are talking about this guy right?

      Welcome to Getting to Know you, September 2018 Edition.
       
      Here are the roolz, copied directly from @Crowley's post from last month
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
       
      The most important thing is to have fun! In fact, its now mandatory

      You thought you were rid of me... you thought "Thanks Gygax's Leather Dice Bag, July is over and we're through with Crowley's stupid questions!"
       
      YOU WERE ONLY HALF RIGHT!
       
      July IS over, but I HAVE MORE STUPID QUESTIONS!!
       
      Now, as a reminder, the obligatory rulze posting:

      Hey all! Time for the 2018 ReaperCon Forumite Bingo! So, those of you who were on the cards last year, or got a card last year know how the game works, so you can skip the next paragraph.
       
      What is Forumite Bingo? It's a convention game I came up that is generally well received so I will do it again this year. The game is just like what a bingo game would be, but rather than calling out numbers to fill your card, you must go around and introduce yourself to members of the forum who are on your card. Say hi to them, and you can cross their box off. Once you've made "bingo", return to me for your Bingo ribbon. Blackout isn't required, but several people did it for the grins. And there's nothing to 'prove' you met those who you have said you have, just the honor system. You only punish yourself by cheating yourself out of meeting wonderful people.
       
      Last year there were more volunteers than spaces, so not every one was on every card, and hopefully there will be enough volunteers again this year. It made for a good variety. So, this thread is not for signing up to receive a card to play. This is a signup for people who are willing to be on a card. The cards will be freely handed out at the convention. Just come find me, and potentially my wife who may have my materials. Be aware, volunteering to be on the card will mean that complete strangers will be coming up to meet you, and they may not be actually signed up and be on this forum. That happened more often than I thought it would last year. If that makes you uncomfortable, then reconsider volunteering.
       
      So, the ground rules:
       
      I exclude the Reaper peeps since they are all pretty accessible. The game's purpose is to meet the less visible and vocal forum members. I will continue that. Sorry peeps, we love ya, but I feel that's best. The free square in the middle will be me, since everybody has to meet me to get the card it seems the fairest way. You must be going to ReaperCon to be on the card please! And if possible, the full Thursday to Saturday at least. It's unfair to those whose card you are on if you don't show, or are a Saturday only person. I will not exclude you if you are a Saturday only (or similar) limited attendee. However, people who have you on their cards will get to cross you off without meeting you if you aren't there when they need you for bingo. By replying with the information below, you are giving your permission to use the picture provided and your name provided, and to be inundated with people introducing themselves to you. Once I've printed the cards (much closer to the con than I want), they are set in stone. I can't remove people from the cards, and they're a bit pricey to just toss. Plans change, life happens, and if you become a no-show, you simply become a gimme square and are crossed off automatically by those who need your square. It already happened once and well, it will probably happen again. We'll just roll along in those cases. Signups will be open from now until August 15th. That gives me a mere two weeks to randomize the cards and have them printed on card stock. I'll get a mod to lock this thread on that date, and once the thread is locked, no more volunteers will be accepted. One does not need to be very active on these forums to be on the card, but it helps people to recognize you. But I will not turn away anybody that isn't very active if they really want to be on the card. If there's a question about any of these numbered questions, please quote the text since the numbering is automatic and I can't control it if there's an insertion. I will update these rules as questions and issues come up.  
      All ready to sign up? Good! Here's what you need to do. Reply to this thread with:
      The name you want to use. I prefer your forum handle, so people might have some idea of who you are. They can always write your real name across the square as a way of crossing you off, but it's up to you what name to have on the card. What picture you wish to use for your square. Again, I prefer your forum picture, but if you are someone who changes it often, I might grab one that isn't current so having you explicitly give me one helps. What days you will be at ReaperCon. I'll put the days you won't be there on the square, and this will help us know if your are there that day or not. I'm only using Thursday thru Sunday, with Wednesday as a simple bonus day.  
      This is optional, but if you could also send a recent picture of your actual self via PM to me, I'd appreciate it. Something like a full on face shot, without costume. I plan to have a "cheat sheet" of sorts to help myself remember who is who. This way I can help direct people to those members they're still needing to collect. My brain isn't wired to put names to faces easily, and being tired from the Con won't help that. So, having something I can use to point the way will help. Again, this is optional.
       
      I think that's it for now. See you all in a month!

      The year is halfway over! What do you want to achieve this month?
       
      Here's my list:
       
      - Get blog going again.
      - Finish editing photos from last November >.<
      - Paint Bones Sphinx (by August 4).
      - Figure out how many other projects I have to do (that aren't already on the table) and give them time lines.
      - Figure out a giveaway for 1000 followers on IG.
