I do. I remember when Doublefeed changed his AVTAR to Johnny Cash, it kind freaked me out. And then when Airwolf changed his again today I was also having a hard time adjusting.

I'm not saying that you can't do whatever you want. I'm just easily confused that's all!

Sure, it's easier when people stay with the same one. I was thinking Airwolf hasn't been around for a couple days when I noticed he had a new one.

Not complaining, though. Have at it!

I associate a user name with an avatar yes.

I have a mental image of the person from a compilation of info from previous post. It rarely turns out to be anything like what they really look like.

I kept Ryoko for a LONG time. Took it down for Faye awhile back but DK-Prof was so sad to see Ryoko go that I put her back up.

Arnold's vote on banning .50BMG pissed me off so badly that I had to do something (can't afford to buy a 50 until near years end), hence the change.

To answer your question, yes I do ID people by their avatars but when one changes it only takes a day or two to associate the person with the image.

Only exeception to this is that abomination that BenDover posted the other day . Thank God for Firefox and Adblock. It's the ONLY time on ANY board that I've ever blocked an image.

Okay, here's a list that you MUST be able to recognize and name a couple songs:
Willie Nelson Take this job and shove it, on the road again
Waylon Jennings recognize the name, can't name any songs
Kris Kristofferson Wasn't he in Universal Soldier?
Johnny Cash Ring of fire, Fulsom Prison Blues,
Billy Joe Shaver Who?
Merle Haggard Okie from Miskokie
David Allen Coe recognize the name, can't name any songs
Hank Williams recognize the name, can't name any songs

Some obscure ones? Cooter's Garage Band. John Schneider. World's Greatest Fishing Band.
You won't be sorry.

If That Ain't Country (David Allan Coe)


The old man was covered with tattoos and scars
He got some in prison and others in bars
The rest he got workin' on old junk cars in the daytime
They looked like tombstones in our yard
And I never seen him when he wasn't tired and mean
He sold used parts to make ends meet
Covered with grease from his head to his feet
Cussin' the sweat and the Texas heat and mosquiters
And the neighbors said we lived like hicks
But they brung their cars for pa to fix anyhow
He was veteran-proud, tried and true
He'd fought till his heart was black and blue
Didn't know how he'd made it through the hard times
He bought our house on the G.I. Bill
But it wasn't worth all he had to kill to git it
He drank pearl in a can and Jack Daniels black
Chewed tobacco from a mail pouch sack
Had an old dog that was trained to attack sometimes
He'd get drunk and mean as a rattlesnake
And there wasn't too much
That he would take from a stranger

There were thirteen kids and a bunch of dogs
A house full of chickens and a yard full of hogs
I spent the summertime cuttin' up logs for the winter
Tryin' like the devil to find the Lord
Workin' like a nigger for my room and board
Coal-burin' stove, no natural gas
If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass
If that ain't country,
It'll hairlip the pope
If that ain't country, it's a damn good joke
I've seen the Grand Ole Opry,
And I've met Johnny Cash
If that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass

Mama sells eggs at a grocery store
My oldest sister is a first-rate whore
Dad says she can't come home anymore
And he means it
Ma just sits and keeps her silence
Sister, she left 'cause dad got violent
And he knows it
Mama she's old far beyond her time
From chopping tobacco and I've seen her cryin'
When blood started flowin' from her calloused hand
And it hurt me
She'd just keep workin' tryin' to help the old man
To the end of one row and back again like always
She's been through Hell since Junior went to jail
When the lights go out she ain't never failed
To get down on her knees and pray
Because she loves him
Told all the neighbors he was off in the war
Fightin' for freedom,
He's good to the core and she's proud
Now our place was a graveyard for automobiles
At the end of the porch there was four stacks of wheels
And tires for sale for a dollar or two cash.

There was fifty holes in an old tin roof
Me and my family we was livin' proof
The people who forgot about poor white trash
And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass
And if that ain't country, It'll hairlip the pope
And if that ain't country, It's a damn good joke
I've seen the Grand Ole Opry,
And I've met Johnny Cash
And if that ain't country, I'll kiss your ass
I'm thinking tonight of my blue eyes
Concerning the great speckled bird
I didn't know God made Honky-Tonk Angels
And went back to the wild side of life.

Did he really sing that one? That was duet with Willie Nelson though right?

Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys, don't let them pick guitars and drive great big trucks, let them be doctors and lawyers and such!

Mama's don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys, cause they're never at home and they're always alone, even with someone they love.

Hank died in 1953. Hank Jr., is still going stong and was great freinds with Bill Ruger before he died.


I have only had a working avatar for a few months. I was a Team Member for a year and a half before I got it working.

I caught a ration of shit when I tried to change mine, now I'm attached to it. I do recognize people by their avatar, and it screws me up when they change them. But what's worse is when some asshat tries to steal one... I caught one fucko with mine, which is a custom .gif that IlikeLegs fixed up for me.

I was polite, but told him he better look for something else.

Yeah, but the reticle wasn't originally there. But I admit, it was a good addition.

I think 82nd changes his avatar once a week.

Yes, I dislike people changing avatars, but as Airwolf demonstrated (.50 cal ban in Cal), there are good reasons to change.

I have had 3, but they all have had Larry in them, I just change the background.
I figure, it is still easily recognizable that way.
That reminds me, I need to make his rifle a NOBAN. Maybe an M4.


I'll resize this one. I had it on my server, so it was easy to post while away from home tonight.




The flag one is my favorite. I'll go back after the election.
