I am a new member here and this is my first post. I've been a fan of the site for quite some time as a guest, and now I finally decided to join. I've been collecting Joes since 1984. I am a huge fan of the comics and cartoons as well.
The other reason that I am writing this post is to ask you your thoughts on choosing my member name. I am a huge fan of Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow, and I wanted to use one of those as my user name. I then figured that they were already taken, plus since they are so popular and have so many fans the idea didn't seem so original.
I really wanted to choose a name that fit me, and what I do. I work in the Television and Film industry, so I wanted to find a character that in some way had a connection to that field. That is when I thought of Scoop. The thing that really sold me on him was his video camera because it reminded me of my college days when I was a cameraman. Scoop is a journalist, which I am not, but I still think he fits me.
I used to have his figure, but it was stolen from me sometime during the 90's along with half of my Joes. I managed to replace most of them through trades, garage sales, Ebay, and just simply nice people who gave me them for free. (That is how I have replaced most of my collection, and the figures I received are in better shape than mine were.) I still have all of his accesories except for his mic. One day shortly I will pick him up on Ebay if I see one to my liking. I'm always looking out for new, or former recruits to join my ranks, but I guess I''m as picky as some of you guys when it comes to quality.
Ok I have rambled on enough. I just wanted to write this to say hello, and to ask you if you had any other suggestion for me about what name I could use that had something to do with communications (like Tele-Vipers or something), that would be appreciated.
Until then i will just stick with Scoop.
Thanks for all of the great posts I have read and learned from before I joined up. Hopefully now I can join in on them as well. Keep of the good work everyone, and YO JOE!

I think you're stuck with Scoop. I believe the admins frown on members creating multiple accounts.
But Scoop is cool. Fits you well.

Welcome to the Tank, Scoop!
I personally like your name, but if you want to change it, just let me or one of the other staff members know and we'll take care of the change for you ;)
XeroFall is right, creating multiple user names = bad. Asking for a name change = Good

Welcome aboard man! Don't worry, I don't think there is an abundance of Scoop-haters on this board :-)
I'm an actor/producer in central FL so it's cool to see someone else on here who's in the business.
This is by far the best joe site on the 'net and it's a great place to interact with fellow fans.
Post often, post well!

Welcome Scoop! I just recently joined myself. I believe you will enjoy your time spent here. Look forward to getting to know you. Keep Scoop. I haven't seen another one so that makes you and your handle unique.
I have Saboteur, and I think theres at least half a dozen Firefly's on here. So Scoop is unique.
