I am kind of bored tonight, and decided to start this thread. Who are the people you know instantly by avatar, and what do you think those reasons
are? Lets even include other aspects other than the avatar, such as typing style, personality, etc...
Lets get the obvious out of the way and say that SkepticOverlord is a pretty memorable avatar.
Personally, I find that ATS User Phage has a very memorable avatar. I dont even need to second guess, as soon as I see Phage with his arms crossed and
the authoritative look, I know the 'master' is here to set the record straight. I commend you on that, Phage.
From here on out I wont be able to remember specific user names, but avatars stand out. If requested I will come back and label each avatar with a
user name, though it would be fun to see if ATSers can figure out who each avatar is! Here goes:
Another ATSer has an avatar with an asian looking woman with (as one user put it) "a bra cup worn on her shoulder". I instantly recognise this
avatar as a singular entity. She generates very interesting material to the topic at hand.
The user who mentioned my quote above has an avatar of a spanish looking guy with a mustache. He is dressed in redish clothing, the whole avatar is
mostly red in my mind. This user posts a lot, yet the posts are mostly minimal, although they always seem to directly address the OP. I find this
somewhat incredible. He seems to adequately address the OP in 1-2 sentences, where-as I feel I need half a page to respond to a post.
Another user who is very memorable IMHO is one with a nearly monochrome avatar, one of a knight in whispy smokyness. This avatar vaguely reminds me of
the Lich King from World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King. He always seems to come into topics I have an interest in, at the right time, and speak
the voice of reason. He says what I wanted to say, only in a much more civilized and appropriate voice. His avatar is black and grey, an image of a
'shadow knight' or something.
Years ago there was an avatar that included a waterfall, a rainbow, i believe there was also a unicorn. The whole avatar was very colorful and
whimsical. Being years ago I cant remember the details of the avatar, but the user name was River Goddess. Anyone remember this user???
There are many others I would like to include, but in the interest of brevity I will cut it short here for now. I would like to provide a link to each
members profile page, but think guessing might be fun. I would also like to see if anyone has any additions to my list.
NOTE* When you add to this list, please provide a small description of what makes this user memorable, such as I have done above. It would be
interesting to see if other ATSers can name the popular users based ONLY on the description of their avatar. Please be prepared to take a moment to
include a link to this users profile page if no one can guess. Thanks!
