I think that is remarkably tidy. :thumbsup:

Have you had a name change// never in OT or something? I don't recognise the name, even tho you are obviously a long standing CFCer!

I'm fairly certain "Grey Fox" has been known as "Grey Fox" during the whole time I've been a member.

Fair enough. There is a lot of CFC I never venture into anymore.. mostly the "civ" bit of it! :crazyeye:

Speaking of which, my custom user title is a shout out to the Civ Ideas & Suggestions community, to gently remind them every time they see me post that Civ is a strategy, not a tactical, game.

Greetings,

In this thread (although I am sure there are duplicates), let us discuss our own avatars in general.

Who or what is your avatar? I'm sure many people look at various avatars and ponder "I wonder who that is", while others (like me) just ignore it and push it back in their minds, thinking "I'm probably dumb for not knowing who that is".

Why did you choose that avatar? Why have you chosen to use the avatar that you have? What's the significance?

I will start.

My avatar is of General Erwin Rommel. He was a general for Germany during World War II, and he's mostly renown for leading the North African campaign. Nicknamed "the desert fox", he was famous for his cunning and great strategical mind, and infamous for his rejection of Nazi fascism and racism. I could go further in detail, but if you're truly interested, you can visit the local Wikipedia page or something similar. I personally "fell in love" with the man after reading a sort-of biography.

Why do I have Rommel as my avatar? A lot of reasons, mostly complex, but I can boil it down to basically the admittance that things aren't always the way they seem. Not all Germans in WWII were evil. Rommel is an example of a good guy on the other side of the fence. And I think that stands for something, it represents something. Again, most of which I can't really explain directly. Not to mention that he's my favourite general.

Share your avatar's significance (if any).

[to_xp]Gekko

it's pennywise's symbol. melodic punk hardcore band, with great riffs and lyrics. I find intelligent, thoughtful lyrics to be crucial in my enjoyment of a song. which is why my favourite band is Bad Religion, but their symbol:

Why did you choose that avatar? It goes with my user title "Artificially Intelligent", and she's hot, and she's using a pistol. "Artificially Intelligent" is a term I'd use to describe myself (and some other people here) in that we use websearching to improve on our knowledge and understanding when engaging in discussion here, generally sounding (and legitimately becoming) much more well-informed than we were prior to doing so.

Edvard Beneš (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edvard_Bene%C5%A1), Leader of the President of Czechoslovakia, then leader of the Czech Resistance during WWII, and then president of Czechoslovakia. I found the guy after a wiki-walk. I think it started with the Nazis, moved onto Reinhard Heydrich (Who would have made a nice avatar if he wasn't the architect of the Holocaust), from there to the Czech Resistance, and then Edvard Beneš himself. Also stumbled across František Moravec, who, while not avatar material, was an under appreciated badass of WWII.

In case you're sensing a theme here, or you've been stalking me around the internet (in which case, bully good job!) I like using black & white (or sepia tone) photos of semi-obscure world leaders as avatars. We could speculate on some psychological motivation for all this, my pathological need to feel world and superior, a desire for respect, yadaya,but really, I just picked up the habit when playing Nation States, where practically everyone does that, and continued it. And old photographs simply have more class than modern ones that show you every zit and nose hair.

Mine is Jerry Garcia, famous guitarist and front man of the band "Grateful Dead" who are my favorite musical group of all time. I use it because he is my favorite rock guitarist, and his music and philosophical views had a large influence on who I am as a person today (musical tastes, fixation with 60s anything, etc.) and the way he looks in this particular shot is quite nice (and you gotta admit, a young skinny Jerry is way more pleasing to the eyes than a old fat Jerry)

When I made the decision to move away from the stock CfC avatar, I originally wanted to do a George Harrison avatar as he is my favorite Beatle, but I think there's someone on here who already uses George as his avatar, so I opted for Jerry instead.

I'll be on the lookout for some flag + hawk pics.

My avatar is from Archie Sonic issue 118, where Eggman and Snively are turned organic while Tails and Sonic are turned into machines, as part of a test to see which is superior. The stakes are high: the winner of the match is returned to normal, the loser is forced to stay in their transformed state.

...Sonic and Tails obviously win.

...Doesn't change the fact Sonic just looks menacing as all hell as a Terminator-thingy. (The second time he's been roboticized, too) So I decided to use it as an avvy.

The "Roboticized Hero" thing is self-explanatory.

You can't just say that and then nothing. You have to explain why!

He was like you with your semi-serious apocalyptic visions of Germanic-Slavic race wars, except he was totally serious and spent like half his time* on position papers trying to get Bismarck to dump the Russian alliance and launch a preemptive war against Russia. I have my doubts as to whether he was entirely mentally stable during the late 1870s and 1880s. Even his war plans were subpar and needed to have a good injection of sanity under Graf von Waldersee.

* = hyperbole. But only slightly.
