    We've talked about usernames, but for those of us that have avatars what are they and what do they mean? Some are clearly people's bikes or (I assume) pictures of themselves., but I'm sure all of them tell a story.

    Mine is the logo from Thundercats. It was a cartoon in the 80s when I was a kid.

    I couldn't download the photo I used on the old C+ forum (:blush:) but I found this one <------ (which bears an uncanny resemblance to me :biggrin:) on the avatars available here.
    Plus my computer skills are non-existent, so no point in faffing around trying to get something to work (my patience -sometimes- is even more non-existent :biggrin:).

    Mine is Heidi.
    My plan is to change it every month with a photo taken during the previous month.

    Mine is Spiderman - I've collected Marvel comics for many years now and although I outgrew Spidey a long time ago, I have fond memories of the earlier stuff.

  9. <------- a Nene. it's a hawaiian goose and was once near extinction, until people like the WWT stepped in to breed them and then return them to the wild. They have captive ones at the WWT centre in barnes and they're quite inquisitive and often peck at anything it can get near... including camera lenses. i loved the piece of greenery hanging from this one's beak.

    Mine is Florian Schneider, one half of the founding duo (the other half being Ralf Hutter, who is a lot less photogenic!) behind the legendary Kraftwerk. He is a 'sound fetishist' according to Ralf, which I think is kind of cool.

    The picture was taken circa the release of their seminal album 'Trans-Europe Express in around '77 I think, though I could be wrong.

    It's a picture of me doing my National Service. What? Did you think I was really Irish?
