    Default You knew me as edhopper, now I am Kirby101

    Hi all, after over a decade on these forums as edhopper, I have changed my name to Kirby101.
    The new name is to honor the King on his 100th birthday, as we go into the 101st year of Kirby.
    Just wanted everyone to know I didn't leave or was banned, I'm still here.
    There came a time when the name edhopper died! The final moment came with the fatal release of indescribable power--which tore every post that bore the name edhopper asunder--split it linto a new identity, and filled CBR with the blinding death flash of it's destruction! In the end there was a new user name, spinning slow and barren, clean of all that had gone before, adrift in the fading sounds of binary thunder...THEN----THERE WAS KIRBY101

    Congrats for the new name, 'Kirby101'!

    Very well chosen by the way.

    Nevertheless, I count two bad side-effects : I will miss your good old Golgoth avatar. Also, I won't be able to use the joke I prepared for the cover contest when I saw your request for a new name, now that everybody know. Thinking about it, only the first side-effect is important : CBR will never look the same!

    Well, I think it's cool to honor the King. Elvis would be proud.

    Just kidding!

    I feel like we need a Kirby-esque comic cover to really sell the transition.

    Anyway, cool tribute!

    Unfortunately, it just didn't fit any more. I'll miss it too, since it was my own artwork.

    Thanks. I went through a few possible avatars before i settled on this one. There is so much Kirby to choose from.

    As a suggestion, if you want to, you could use a different piece of Kirby artwork as an avatar each week, changing it up say, every Monday. That might be fun.

    If i find the time to play with the images, maybe I will.
    Though I find I often know people immediately through their avatars win reading a thread. I don't want to confuse people more than I already have.

    Kamandi-guy sounds remarkably similar to Orion-dude who now that I think about it, was a lot like Darkseid-man!

    Good call. I've been thinking about changing my avatar lately too.

    Just so long as your appreciation of a certain long running prog-rock band isn't diminished by this makeover

    Never, Kirby101 has not lost his taste for great music.
