Why did you choose your profile picture?

Post by Fyren » May 11th, 2020, 4:55 pm

I'll start: I chose this phoenix GIF for multiple reasons, one of which being that I just wanted something that would pop out/be memorable, and a GIF worked out quite well for that. I also chose this since phoenixes are one of my favorite D&D creatures and in a way represent my personality. It just happened to be that phoenixes also fit with the username I chose for this site.

Cool! My pfp is a weird green oval with eyes and ears. It's often portrayed as smiling, and it holds a pencil to represent my love for stationery. Interesting topic, Fyren.

Well, I like spiders... And, it looks like this one is "smiling" if you look closely. I've been thinking of changing it out. I've got several more, including a couple from today.

It's a nuke... Need I say more? I actually wanna do a GIF but I can't figure it out. :( I've always been fascinated by objects of mass destruction...

For the past months I never looked at it closely and I thought it was an upside-down bat. Now I feel like everything is upside-down now.

Mine is from a picture of me during my school talent show. I had a cool colorblock sweater, with white, gray, and black. Our crew decided to put me in some red and blue lights, which created a really cool effect. I was scrolling through my pictures one day and I was like "Oh, this looks cool" and I cropped it. At this point, I've pretty much used this photo for almost all of my account pfps because I like it so much.

You don't know how long it took me to figure out how to resize a picture. I spent way too much time trying to figure out how to resize a file to fit the pfp size limit on the forum XD

Sorry, I don't think I got any of the bats hanging upside down in that cave a couple of years ago...

I thought it was a bat too! That's a cute spider, btw.
