    It took you eight years to make your first post? That must be some kind of record. :p

    Glad you decided to start posting, finally. Trust me, it's more fun than just reading. :D

    I keep hearing good things about the Clone Wars... don't really like the style of animation, but I'm beginning to think I should give it a try, after all.

    Hey, if you want to meet other SW fans, you should check out FanForce. :) We've got plenty of local fan clubs all over the world that actually meet in "real life" regularly. You can find links to all the different chapters on the main page - just scroll down till you see "FanForce: [your region here]"

    Yeah, call me old but I don't like the "new" style of animation, I prefer the old school type like Gen 1 Transformers, GI Joe and all of those cartoons I used to watch on Saturday mornings.

    My friends always call me a Wookie, because I am pretty hairy. And years ago I joked with them and told them my Wookie name would be Wookatme. Seemed like a natural choice when I registered.

    Skyler is my favorite roleplaying character/fan-fic OC for star wars. Anakin Skywalker is my favorite star wars charcter. Put them togther and you get Skyler_Skywalker. :p

    Carrie Fisher appeared to me in a hologram and begged me to use this name.

    I was at a complete loss for a user handle when I joined TFN. Ended up going with a randomly chosen name from the Knights of the Old Republic character name generator.

    Turns out it stuck :D

    Well, my name is actually Ed..so mine is completely different lol.

    I got my name because about 8-10 years ago I was playing a Dungeons and Dragons character when I registered for some internet forum. It wanted a username etc as per the usual and I decided to take the name from the DnD character. THat character was Holly Snow, from the land of Alba. I just said them together in various combos and this was the one that seemed to fit the best :)

    My name is orange because I like orange. 999 is just a number that is easy to remember.

    Well, looks like you found the perfect icon for yourself. :D

    Why on earth do we have an icon that is completely orange, anyway? Are the other colors available too? :p

    For us orange flight suit lovers? I'm not sure either to be honest, though I do know we have a black and a white one as well.

    I did some research, and apparently that is one of our Halloween icons.

    Really scary. :p

    Gosh, yeah... just one month and everyone will start getting out those silly socks again. :p


    I do like your explanation, Fallen. ;) But wouldn't it make more sense to use an actual picture of a flight suit for that?

    So that's why you picked orange for your username? :D

    Mine is just a play off of the old Nickelodeon show "Ahh Real Monsters!".
    What's weird is that I never really watched it when I was little. I just like the way it sounds with my nickname thrown onto the end. :p

    I'm just lazy. I think light sabers are the single most awesome things in the universe and I'm a fireman. Thus, you have the name :)
