Good idea for a thread, Digitalboy.

Name: One of my favorite RPG characters of all time. He's a badass from Xenogears. Here is a picture of him that was my first avatar at the MMCafe.

Avatar: Link going to town on a defenseless chicken. A snippit from this comic strip. I have no idea what the original source is. I got it from 4chan a while back.

Signature: Sgt. Keroro!

Username: I had come up with this name years ago when I was naming a zombie in Monster Rancher 1. Heh heh. I guess the name just stuck with me after that because I thought it had a "ring" to it.

Avatar: Mikey's dad from Oh! Mikey. The show's pretty funny in a disturbing way. I think I chose the dad for my current avatar since he scares me the most.

Signature: BRAIN CAMS- boobs, zombies, kitty girls, and so forth.

WooHoo, yet another narcissistic thread in sight!! Let's get to it.

Username: actually, "Maese Spt" is not the user name I wanted to have... I had many problems while registering a valid e-mail adress, so I unintentionally registered many nicks wich will be never used. Anyway, "Maese" is an ancient spanish word wich can be translated as "master" or "lord", but is mainly used when you want to adress a person of great wisdom and/or abilty (yeah, I have a really high concept of myself, haven't I?). I use it on other spanish boards as well.

The "Spt" thingie goes as an acronym of "Sephiroth". Shameful as it is, I'm adressed as FFVII's villain in some geek circles around my city. My original intention was to register myself only as "Maese", but I messed up with the e-mail thing and I had to figure out another nick, so I went with this.


Avatar: pretty much self-explanatory... A yuri kiss between Belldandy and Urd. Incest, lesbianism, pagan myths and Ah! My Goddess: concepts that happen to define my idiosyncrasy quite well.


Spoiler (Highlight to view) -
In fact, they are not exactly kissing each other: Urd only tries to feed Belldandy some kind of medicine pills, but Fujishima-sensei knows how to depict such a mundane action in an actually interesting way.

End of Spoiler




Signature: the pic is a fanart of Ico I found on 4chan not so much ago. While I love that game, and I find Yorda totally lovable, I probably will change the image for some Taki related crap in a few days. I felt inspired by Ishmael's new sign, I guess.

The bottom quote is from Tsuji Kunio's "Azuchi Okanki" (a novel translated as "The Signore" in english). It's a book about Nobunaga, his exploits and his time. The quote is the very first reference to Nobunaga in the book, when the main character asks the people of Sakai about that infamous lord of Owari wich seems to terrify everyone on the country. I find funny the fact that Nobunaga's name is not mentioned even a single time on the entire novel, they always refer to him as "lord of Owari", "the Signore" (the protagonist is a european mercenary) and such.

I'm sort of a Nobunaga fan myself, and I liked both the book and the quote, so I chose it as a signature. In fact, "Azuchi Okanki" has so many great quotes that could hold its own even against Romance of Three Kingdoms! No, srsly.

And that's about it. Man, I love talking about myself...

We had a topic like this before, but...I think everyone's forgotten by now, so I'm happy to see it again.

Username:
I used to be uncurably cheery. I was always happy and energetic...and was known as such. One day, someone made a comment about my happy disposition and I said "You can call me Pollyanna" (quoting the Mother song) and it stuck.

Avatar:
Many of my avatars are by Akiman, who is my favorite artist. My previous one was my 2nd favorite character from Hanjuku Hero. My current one is simply the product of failing to find something better. It's from Namco's New Years card. I may change it soon.

Obviously, I don't have a signature. I used to hate image signatures, because I felt like they were very inconsiderate to people with slow connections. I don't feel so anymore, but somehow the idea has stuck in the back of my head. If I ever have anything good to quote, maybe I'll make a text signature, but someone I feel like it's just not appropriate for me.

Hello All,

I thought i'd take this opportunity to introduce myself formally.

My name is Richmond and I've been coming to this site since the late 90s, although i almost never post. To tell you the truth, I feel like I'm intruding every time i post (so why's he doing it now??!).

Anyhow my username comes from Nobita Nobi from Doraemon, which was one of the first manga i ever read as a child. I always related to Nobita as a kid, and still do into adulthood.

My avatar is from a comic i drew last year.

I don't have a sig.

Just thought i'd make my presence known, instead of staying the creepy lurker who occasionally and intrusively posts.

Oh and by the way... I'm watching you... I'm watching ALL OF YOU!!!

Watching, and judging!

Anyway, as for my pertinent info:

I named myself after the narrator of "Moby Dick," the funniest book ever written. I've been dragging the name Ishmael around since I was posting on Gouki's Page of Whatever so I've had this handle for a long time in internet time.

My avatars usually feature various adolescent male power fantasy characters who often take the form of tough guys in suits. At the moment Dan Smith from Killer7 is holding down the fort. My sig will mostly showcase female game characters- which taps into male fantasies of a different nature. Right now it's Taki from Soul Calibur. TakiTakiTakiTakiTaki.

Username: Well...it's something that's been in my head for a pretty long time, and I've been using it on TEH INTARWEBS for about 6 or so years now, though I use others sometimes too. Anyway, lots of people have asked what it means, and I've never told. Part of the reason is just because I enjoy being able to keep dumb little secrets like that sometimes, and messing with people, and part of it is because I don't really know how the hell I'd explain it anyway. It relates to a lot of things. Most people just notice it's a palindrome eventually and are happy enough noticing that, heh. Works for me.

Avatar: Brandon Heat a.k.a. Beyond the Grave from Gungrave. One day browsing the web I ran into some fanart site, with chibi-ish renditions of the cast. I got bored and made an animated AIM icon out of it one day. I think it's pretty neat since I'd never really tried doing anything like that at the time, and I threw it together in half a second anyway (you can tell). Sometimes I worry the guy who made the original sprite will see it and get pissed off, for some reason. But...hasn't happened. Anyway, I wish mmcafe didn't stretch it out so large.

Sig image: Rodo from the manga D.Gray-Man. I'm not usually the type to call someone who mostly only pleases me aesthetically a "favorite character" of mine in something I type somewhat seriously. Like, Ed is cute in Cowboy Bebop and all, but it bothers me when people say they watch the show for her, or something. I'm just like that. Despite this, I find Rodo, her aesthetics, personality, and overall presence to just be pretty cool, even if she hasn't done much so far. I've only had females in my sigs here for some reason, so I kept up with that with her. She'll probably stay for a while.

My username was chosen because Terry Bogard is my favorite character to ever grace any fighting game.

The tag and avatar are both from Rurouni Kenshin, which I love. It was my favorite anime for a long time and I love the manga. My tag and avatar used to be of Ed from Cowboy Bebop (I think Baghead made them for me), and I would be using those again, but I can't find them (I'm on a new computer and I can't find them on my old one). Of course, I also have considered switching to a Tag and avatar of Blue Mary and/or Terry.

Well, I think it's funny, my turkish brother!

Nick: I've been using this name for a looooong time. I was using 'Nexus' until someone told me that was a hair product, and then I do use 'Wraith' on online games sometimes.

My dad's first name is Tulga, and he turned that into Tallguy, and used that on the internet when we first got it. My first name is Kenan. So there, I just ripped my dad's screenname and put a K in front of it! 相変わらず俺のバカ。

I'm much taller than my dad, at least 3 inches. I'm 192 cm, or 6'4". But in reality that's not THAT tall, I know.

Wow the new formatting is fun! =)

Um, Avatar is the Aphex Twin logo, but I've had Virtua Fighter stuff, KOF stuff, Ibuki stuff...

I am thinking about making an image sig someday. But the quote is just K' from KOF saying, 'You're so fricking low compared to me,' something like that. K' is a badass. Oh, and I hope the next gen brings some interesting stuff, right now it's all about cautious optomisim...

Username: it's the name of the main character of Tales of Eternia. Both the character and the game were renamed for the US, but that's because Namco of America sucks (the name they gave it to the game, is the name of another different game of the saga in Japan).

Avatar: it looked kinda kupo so I had to use it.

Username: When I first visited that thing called "internet" I found that in order to communicate with other people, I had to invent another name (It was in IRC chat, specifically). Wow, too complicated. So, after trying out some names that were already chosen, I thought about that curious job from FFV, that had the almighty Meteo. And that's all. Lately I'm using "Taim Meich" instead of Time Mage. Taim Meich is the phonetic adaptation in Spanish of Time Mage, so, basically, both are pronounced exactly the same.

Avatar: Takino Tomo, the hyperactive girl from Azumanga Daioh. I kinda like this kind of dumb, cheery characters, and Tomo sums the archetype pretty well.

OMG, the originality!!

Sorry. /(;u_u)
Heh, I always end up posting only in these kind of threads... Whatever:

User Name: I didn't have a fix nickname by the time I joined (or rather, started trying to join), so I chose to call myself "Without Nick". To make it a little more "cryptic" I just wrote it in Catalan "Sense Nick" and put it together to form what, to me, seemed and still seems a rather standard fantasy character name: "Sensenic" (Good Lord, how many times have I explained this story?).
Since apparently it has become my fix user name everywhere I've joined ever since, it has become some kind of a paradox now ^_^

Avatar: Deidara. I just loved that face.
Self-quoting apart, he's (yes, HE, unfortunately) a character from the 2nd part of Naruto, and a pretty evil, sicko and badass one. Then, once, he appeared in this funny scene with that face and I loved it so much it had to become my avatar (and many other people's as well ^_^).

Sig: Always been: comment on my avatar, tag and quote.
Tag is, obviously, from Yotsubato!, a manga I truly and utterly love. And kudos go to Momotato and his excellent (I believe) scanlating work.
Quote changes from time to time, right now is just a phrase a friend of mine said, "putting himself too much in the role".

And so be it.

Username: When I was at university I was computer iliterate, so I picked up a class for people like myself who had never turned on a computer in order to fix this. The first task we were given was to create an E-mail account. I was advised not to use my real name, so I had to create a nick. I decided to use the word "Macondo", which is a very special place depicted in Gabriel Garcia Marquez's "One Hundred Years of Solitude".Unfortunately, that name was already taken (and also Macondo01, Macondo02 and so on), I got nervous and the class was about to finish, so I decided to replace the "c" with a "k" (they sound the same in Spanish, in this context) and add "99" and thus "Makondo99" was born. When I joined the cafe, I used the same nick, but nowadays whenever I have to use a nick I prefer to use "Makondo"

Avatar: Recently I watched "Gankutsuou" and I fell in love with it. This image corresponds to the Count. He is THE AWESOME.

If you haven't read the book yet, I highly recommend it. In fact, it may be the only work of literature that comes with my "highest possible recommendation." (as long as its unabridged)

Let's see.

Now these days, I go under the name of Bata-kun. "Bata" is Tagalog for kid or child, and yes, people do think I am 17, which is sort of why I have this name, but of course, those people are way off on my age. Seeing that some of you don't know Japanese, "-kun" is a suffix for guys, but it also has other uses.

Every month, you'll see me change my avatar and tag. Why? Back then, I used to have a "Love Hina" Haruka avatar. It was the image people associated me by. Ha ha ha! Then, I realized, I don't want to be just like "The fight is all," guy. (If you don't know who I mean and you know "Street Fighter", shame on you.)

My av, as Arngrim mentioned a while back, is of Aka from "Rec", a series that came out earlier this month in Japan. I'll end up seeing it when I see a friend of mine. Maybe.

The girl in my tag is Hina from the "True Love Story" series. Though I have not played the games, I have seen two episodes of the anime if I recall? I know I saw the first episode for sure.

GOOOOOD choice, I've passingly noticed that picture before, but I shouldn't known it was Balzac. They're loads of fun, one of the few Japanese bands I'd play for people who don't care much about Japan at all.

I'm holiday because I always need one? Well, at least my online persona reminds people to take one.
Avatar is of Kuga Natsuki and Duran from My-HiME. Well, it's a cute picture so why not?

Tag is more of the Mai-HiME (and Mai-Otome) girls, mariofied and having fun.

The tag and avatar are both from Rurouni Kenshin, which I love.



You're still using that tag I made for you years and years ago!
I think it was because you requested for some Kenshin stuff in some avatar/tag request thread.

Hey! You're right! He has been using that tag and av for a while! Well, it's not my decision that decides whether or not he should get a new tag and av.

I don't know how big of a loss that is. It's like I invested a little money in stocks, then forgot about it entirely. Several years later, someone says "You lost all the money you invested in stocks!" and I can only shrug, because I don't know what that means to me.

Polly, thanks for the advise. I couldn't find an English version but I'll probably buy a Spanish one. It's a very thick book, so I guess it hasn't been altered.

In English "abridged" is like 500 pages, and unabridged is like 900. I assure you it's not the least bit slow, boring or excessively wordy, though.

You couldn't tell by the Guy with the Baghead??? Its actually quite funny... If you saw Faust at one of their shows... that'd be amazing... on acid.
Their character with the baghead is easily noticeable... This guy who does poster art/ all other types of art did something for them... USUGROW... I can't find a picture... but here is a hoodie usugrow did for balzac- http://www.evilegend13.com/shockerworldwide/balzac/hoodies/bh-b-002/bh-b-002.html

"Re(4):User name, avatar, & signature" , posted Fri 3 Mar 09:04post reply

User name: One hundred years ago I had an AOL account and opted to use Vampire Savior as my screen name. Apparently my game fascination of the moment had too many letters for good ole' AOL so I settled a shortened VSavior.

As it turned out people were oddly curious as to what the V stood for and not wanting to sound like a trite online vampire aficionado I always answered using random words starting with V. Eventually I just adopted Variable to stand for the multitude of cool V words. Over time it's kind of mutated into an sort of pseudo-philosophical concept.

Hmmm... maybe I should have opted for Vermilion.

Avatar: I initially only joined to MMC to ask a question about CvS's stupid color editor - I never anticipated sticking around so I didn't put alot of thought into my avatar selection. I chose this avatar off the stock selection when I joined because I felt it's suggestion of praying played well off my Savior moniker. It's worked well enough for me so I've stuck with it all this time.

Signature: I don't go for the whole image signature thing so I opted for Basara's quote from SS. I've always been interested in whose blood it refers to (the person seeking heaven or their enemies) so it's stayed with me for a while. I like things with multiple interpretations.
