Just when I thought I had settled into my final avatar, Porgs go and happen. A temporary change, but a super fun one nonetheless. Thanks for the suggestion, @"ssj"

Whatever computer-like state you've ascended to, it must be pretty dated if you're limited to caps-lock and zero punctuation... With all due respect, your Frinkiness.

Personally, I just look at the name tag. 

And we're not primitive. It's more complicated than that...

Username: An obvious portmanteau of "Duracell" & "Energizer".

Avatar: A photo of Jennifer Lawrence. I can never stick to one avatar for too long, so I'll likely change it in the near-future.

The avatar is an accurate artist's rendering of myself. It's been used as the basis for a character in some obscure TV show without my permission. I really should look into legal action.

The username is from when I started making custom DVD covers when I was 13-14, which I started specifically to replace the "paper bag" cover of the old Army of Darkness "Bootleg Director's Cut" DVD. In case you can't tell, I was a bit obsessed with the Evil Dead trilogy at the time. I used it when I registered over at OT and I became active enough there that I felt like I had to keep it to maintain a single identity across various video project type sites (OT, FE, FanRes, MySpleen, the like).

It's been my handle for so long I'd probably answer to Ash in real life, even though that's not even close to my real name.

This is a nickname my dad had as a kid, that I took when I started going online.  It's a riff on our family name.

I like Star Trek.

The name comes from an old Twitter handle. I just thought of two words which were funny together. For the avatar, I just make it whatever I'm working on at the moment

nick combined with modification because I thought the "Modification" sounded fun after watching this with my kiddos.

Avatar used to be the simple logo I made, now it's back to mashup of two of my favorite robots, Tars and R2.

I've had this name on every website I've been on for probably at least four years, and I don't remember why I came up with it.  The avatar is just a png I found somewhere.

My avatar is just whatever I feel like. 

My username name started out because I used to be a big fan of the classic death metal band Possessed. Then as I grew and stayed with that name for almost ten years I'm finding it fits me more than anything else I could have picked.

Mine is easy to explain.

My whole family quote this daily so I felt it was between this and Redonu :)

I wouldn't call him "my" Nick, we just used to work together and are still casually acquainted. But anyway his parents named him that, he had no say in it.
