View Full Version : What Avatar and Why?!

i like to think that the avatar a person uses is a reflection of his/her personality and/or interests. so, out of pure curiousity, i want to know what the avatar you are using means, and why you chose to use it on these forums ...

mine is a self-portrait, erm ...

i chose mine for two reasons:
i belong to a JK2 clan called LOOK AT MY MONKEY (as you can see from my signature)
i wanted a pic that reflects my pondering of the deepest secrets of the universe (or some philosophical crap like that :p )

so ... what avatar do you have, and why?!

I'm too cool for an avatar. :p

Actually, I don't know why I don't have one. Never felt the need I guess.

Mine is a present from Eets, and I think it's pretty obvious why I use it :)

Ki-Adi-Mundi
01-02-2003, 12:29 PM
I made mine to go with the alias Ki-Adi-Mundi. I don't think that it is a reflection on me or my intrests in any way other than being Star Wars related.

Hmmm interesting question....

I just got mine because its from Kotor.....and because well, I guess if I were a jedi, I'd want to look like that dude. :)

I have no idea.
It's the only animated avatar I've ever made so...

When we used to be able to put pics in our signature I had a pic of a monkey his name was Jo Jo. He was my assistant. He had to go though cause he tried to take over the forums. That was the JPB forums in it's hey day.:D

dentists DO recommend chewing gum between eating meals (or lopping heads off bounty hunters) to help reduce the amount of plaque build-up on your teeth.

mine i took from swcombine and had it resized and stuff by Eets, and it's supposed to be Kioet Csuhen, my trandoshan RPG character and part of myself that shouldn't be set free, but sometimes escapes. hehehe

I like your new avatar.

I chose mine because it has a clown and some guy with a fork.

It fits in really good with the username. :)

Lord Glorfindel
01-07-2003, 08:44 PM
My Avatar is a shrunken and modified-lightsaber-wielding-Glorfindel on the cliffs of Gondolin. I took the picture of Glorfindel from John Howes Glorfindel VS Balrog

My Avatar by no means reflects my personality

hmm, that can be a good thing, or a bad thing.

... which gives me an idea for another thread, how often do you change your underwear, and why?

I don't think I'll be changing my avatar for quite sometime.......if ever. I like mine a lot. Plus it matches the color of my glow. :D

I change my avatar all the time to reflet what I am interested in at the time. What do you think of my new Bastila av, I made it from a pic from the LucasArts insider email. :D

Hannibal

My avatars and status are like the future...constantly in motion.:rolleyes:

I'll be changing them constantly till I get that warm fuzzy feeling.

Darth Zaius
01-17-2003, 05:14 PM
I picked Darth Tyrrannus (aka Count Dooku) as my avatar because

1) the Sith rock
2) hes cool
3) he IS stronger than yoda
4) he is played by one of my favorite actors

and finally

5) the Sith are better than the jedi

leXX
01-17-2003, 05:23 PM
Sorry to get off topic but:

Originally posted by Darth Zaius

Is that why he ran away from him? :rolleyes: If that were true (and it's NOT), he would have defeated Yoda (which he didn't).

Darth Zaius
01-17-2003, 05:27 PM
simple. strategy, he could have given yoda a force choke when he was holding up the huge mass trying to save anakin and obi, but his master has plans for them both so he didn`t

Darth Zaius
01-17-2003, 05:30 PM
also i appologise for getting a tad bit off topc, but i had to explain

leXX
01-17-2003, 08:14 PM
Could have... what if... all conjecture. Fact is he ran.

If Dooku is so powerful, why didn't he beat Yoda straight away? I'll tell you why, because he isn't more powerful it's as simple as that, and it's about time you Dooku fans admitted it.

Anyway... back on topic...I apologise.

hey like i said, it is part of sidious`s plan, just wait till #3 comes out , and anyways it is just an opinion that we don`t have to argue over, hey come on respect mine and ill respect yours there is no need to fight, unless you want to battle in the roleplaying boards:duel:, im up for it:evil2:

But to stay on topic: who thinks I should change my avatar, and you have a nice avatar boss

Good thank you.......I don't want to take any action now, I'm too excited about all of the news that has been released.

May I suggest a "hotel room" to settle things? :)

I like it! I can't wait for the Animatrix to be released for d/l. Not long to go now, they said the first one will be available in February from the official site (which is where you can d/l the trailer Boss).

edit/ I almost forgot...I made these two from the trailer a couple of months back:

I decided to change mine, cause I recently beat Turok Evolution, and am playing it again....that Tarkeen dude was a cool character in the game, he's a Seer, was cursed to the lost land by a dead god, until he finds the 'son of stone' aka turok. he's not really human either. he's awesome.
