Do you associate certain avatars with certain posters?

    You have no idea how many people I know who have been very envious of regiments who get deployed to hot areas. Be greatful that you don't spend your life in Oberammergurgle or somewhere (respect to anyone who gets that).

    You could have always kept that avatar at the size it was. :mischief:

    I've had Dr. Forrester as an avatar for a couple of months now.

    I've never really stayed with one consistent avatar or theme. Heck, I can't remember most of the ones I've used here. They're probably still saved on my comp somewhere.

    The last time an avatar change threw me for a loop for a few days was when Squonk changed his Marten avatar.

    I'll always associate that Civ 2 Pentagon with Perfy.

    I've used the same avatar in pretty much every online forum that allows custom avs since sometime around 2001. Don't think I've really ever used anything else, except as a joke.

    I stopped posting here a couple years ago, mainly because I only post from work, and this site was setting off virus alerts for some stupid reason. When I came back, it was nice to see some familiar avatars.

    I seem to remember CivGeneral using anime stuff though.

    Nope, Perfy's Avatar is actually a Civ2 fort shaped in a pentagon.

    Oberammergau. In other news, I have decided to deliberately misspell every Brutish place-name I have cause to mention on CFC.

    I considered it when mods got the bigger avatar, but I never did. I've had this avatar for practically my entire time at CFC, so I'd feel odd by changing it.

    I'm afraid you don't. That's the generic tommy name for 'some boring place where you'll waste your life doing nothing that you signed up for'. Generally in Germany.

    Really? Seems like out of the 20th century, the 40s was probably the most prone to that sort of thing. :lol:

    I started out with a skull and later changed it to Kans depiction of it, I once changed it to Doctor Doom but after getting a few people requesting a change back I did

    The only major change I've done is let the guy have a monocle.... although I have done varriants, reindeer, Wearing Bret Hart glasses, puffy and holding an icepack to its face, etc.

    and I sometimes associate people with their avatars, PrinceScamp and the green phallic llama for example
