Most of the regulars here have known each other here for quite some time now but even so, I’ve always noticed a lot of unusual (or very cool) avatars and intriguing forum names, and I’m sure you all have too.
New members are joining the community all the time and recently everyone has been changing their avatars due to the larger size limits.
So I thought it might be entertaining or at the very least interesting to ask everyone why you went for whatever forum name you chose and why you have the particular avatar that you do?
I’m sure there are some interesting stories out there that we’d all love to hear, so have a nosy at everyone else’s responses here then join in the fun and tell us your own reasons.
Err… I suppose I’d better start the ball rolling though given that I started the thread.
So here’s the big reveal!!
Truth be told, I wanted something that reflected my online personality so I chose to go for something that seemed friendly, approachable and would encourage people to interact.
As a child I watched a TV series here in the UK called ‘The Wombles’ based on the books written by Elizabeth Beresford.
Womble was already taken as a user name so I adapted it slightly to Wombler.
Well once you know the story above that’s an easy one, it’s a photo of one of characters from ‘The Wombles’, ‘Orinoco’ to be precise (for those that are familiar with the TV programme)!
I had a photo of ‘Bungo’ prior to that!
