I reluctantly(wanted to keep the same avatar for as long as i could) changed my avatar...I just love this new one.

I got a thing for aliens..lol Not that I believe in them it's just their 'design' for lack of a better word.

How long have you all had your own avatar?

How often do you change it?

Been satisfied with this one for quite a while now. Otherwise, I changed every month!

I've used this same avatar since I signed up here in 2009.

Had the same one for about 4 years. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
The one before that, had the same wording, just looked a bit naff.

@ LH,

Sorry if this makes me sound blunt but I've been curious to ask...why LightHouse? Is it because you guide others through the correct path? If so, I think that's a great name!

@GS & @Hatryst

Now that I think of it, I can't seem to come up with any ideas for your name...mind sharing with us the reason behind your nick names GuiltySpark and Hatryst?

Also, Xhi & Whs. Are their nicknames abbreviations of some sort?

Just curious guys, mine is short for Computer Wizard (CompWiz just sounds better to me...jeje).

I was a lighthouse keeper for 22 years. But that's not the reason why :)

I've had before and some others, but the moment I got the penguin it somehow became my alter ego, so I don't have the heart to change it ;)

@ LightHouse,

Really?..thanks for sharing! : )

@ SarahJames,

I knew I was missing someone! Your avatar! I've been wanting to comment on your avatar for the longest time but I haven't gotten a chance or I end up forgetting. That little penguin is cute. Is that from the movie "Happy Feet"?

@LH,

Of coarse I do! It's just that I feel I've ask enough...lol.

So what is the real reason for the name Lighthouse?

@ Çompwiz,

Its because 'he's got a lightbulb on his head, he's got a li-gh-t bulb on his head...'

GuiltySpark is the name of the oracle in Halo

343 Guilty Spark.
