Mine has been Rooster since the Vietnam days and my squad said I acted like Rooster Cogburn from True Grit. My friends have called me that for many years.

i started to work at a place where there were only like 6 of us and one of the other women was named andrea and she worked there first so the manager asked me if i'd ever had any nicknames and i was like.... yeah! actually! it's Dre!! and it stuck. and my irl friends have always been able to see amirite friends (and then coworkers from that job) calling me Dre on facebook and instagram so random others started calling me Dre as well and its spread from there. my wife calls me Dre sometimes for funsies :')

Astral - It's OK. You are so sweet.

No one has ever called me that, I was even unaware it was on the MEME I posted. I was simply trying to extend the joke. It seems I did so at your unwitting expense, and I am very sorry.

Now I feel bad - I didn't expect this outcome.

I need to be more careful about my attempts at funny.

I like it better than PhotoShop! Fresh Paint isn't too bad either and it comes with Winders 10. Then you have paint 3D. But as soon as you master GIMP2? You can do a lot.

Yeah it's a strange system, that I wish would gotten rid of... and if he stays, at least someone explain it.

The one you got is hearts of the week, which seems to be solely based on the percentage of hearts you have gotten per post in the last two weeks, so even with very few post, 6% of them got hearts? Or at least that's how I'm reading it.

The thought contributor seems to be simply, who has asked the most questions all time.

And I have no idea how the Top Achievers point system works.

When I post on science discussion sites, my nickname seems to be "moron". For instance, I mention that dark matter was invented in 1938 by Ian Oort to fudge his data to agree with his theory, and people respond "Oh, you moron!"
