What's in a name? A picture?

submitted on January 18, 2011 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
Continuing in the same vein as sareece, knowing why we have the screen names and the avatars we use would lend insight to the people behind the post.

Why do you have the screen name you are using? What about that picture we associate with YOU?

Do you think you can really tell if it is male or female behind the name? The picture?

    OK, I'll go first. I have the name DebsFreebies because I have a website called debsfreebies. However, my name isn't Deb Mr Green

    I use this avatar because I love cats and kittens and this one was really cute.

    LOL Well I thought your name was Deb haha! Glad I am not the only one curious about this stuff. Big Grin

    My name is my initials and maiden name. My avatar is because I am a disabled vet, married to a vet so needless to say patriotism is big for me and I love this picture of the eagle and flag.

    I assume who is what gender by their name, display pics and deals they post lol! Although I kind of thought Pablos was a female for some reason.

    My name is part nickname and part of my last name. I am still working on coming up with a good picture. I want it to be perfect for me.

    I really enjoy everyone's creativity with their avatars. I guess mine is kinda dull. When I signed up for Buxr, I wanted to pick one that was different from my screen name on other sites, so I used my location - deep in the heart of Texas. Pretty obvious, huh? Roll Eyes Maybe if I had looked around the site for a while before joining, I might have picked something else, who knows? But when I found Buxr, I really liked the site right away, and wanted to join up!

    I'm pretty uncreative. It's me in my pic & my 1st name & zip code. Couldn't come up with anything better. Would love to change it now after seeing all the creative names here but it's a bit too late!

    I would love to change my screen name too! I hate when they call me YanBz in emails! 5 characters is the shortest name you can have on Buxr, so here I am stuck with the name I don't really like... Sad

    The avatar picture is me in a balloon hat. I took it on my birthday 2 years ago. I had a really good time on that day and this picture reminds me about it. Besides, this is one of very few pictures of myself that I have... I am usually the one taking them Smile

    Ah, my screen name and avatar. Well the screen name was born many years ago, 11+ years ago, when I was using a WebTV box before computers were affordable and it involves too much history to fully explain without revealing to much personal information. The avatar is pretty self explanatory given the username.

    Oh, those last 3 pics with the cats & money are too cute!

    I never really had any intention of being really involved in the site. I figured I might just get/post a coupon once in a while. And it was like that for about the first 2 months. So, I just signed up very quickly with my initials.

    But then, I really starting getting into the site & posting deals & it became kind of addicting, lol.

    Now I'm sorry I chose this lame name & can't change it. I usually have a very clever name I go by on most boards, but I'll keep that a secret until I can change this one. Smile

    About my avatar... Well, I was going to put a super close-up of my face. Then, I thought it might be a good idea to remain anonymous for now. So, I chose Garfield because I love him. Smile

    Since everyone else is sharing, I had to post a pic of my beautiful little girl. She is such a sweetie. We rescued he over 10 years ago. Poor thing was a mess and had ear mites. The day we brought her in from the rain and back from the vet she was a matted, wet mess. She cleaned herself to "cotton ball" status within an hour and is now the cleanest cat I know.

      Very cool eyes; and love the fangs. Reminds me of my old man Monk (Siamese) that past away a couple of years ago (@ 19yrs.) -he had a huge set of fangs. Really miss that cat...he slept right next to me every night.
