    What is your user avatar all about?


    Guys, it's been a couple of years since our last discussion about user avatars, and I've been seeing some interesting looking ones under some of your user names here recently. Would you mind telling us what they are, or what they represent, and what made you decide to use them?

    The coyote from roadrunner always comes up with a new idea.
    He is ingenious and never stops trying, despite constant discouragement.
    Also, he is not evil. He just follows his nature.

    I like the guy

    I usually have an avatar depicting AURYN, from the Neverending Story.
    The theme song from that movie was the song that played when my wife and I left the church on our wedding day.

    Currently, I have some artwork from Stephen Kings' Dark Tower series, which I am currently reading.

    Once I've finished them, I'll likely switch back to my other avatar.

    I've still not sat down with that movie, so I'm just gonna hope that's not a bad reference!

    No, it's not meant to be... although now that you mention it, I haven't actually seen it yet, either!

    My 5-sword-shield avatar is the emblem used by the "Army Of Light" on the Babylon 5 TV series. I've always loved that show. The characters who use the 5-sword-shield emblem were involved in a revolution against Earth, to get rid of a corrupt tyranny that took over the government (a major plot point.)

    I think it represents the desire to always do what is right, no matter what the personal consequences might be.

    I've always figured that was your very own pet cat and rat, and that they simply get along really well. Either way, it has always made me smile, too!
