Basically, what made you choose yours? If it is Offspring related, I needn't say anymore, but if not, how and why did you choose it? I have seen strange ones, that is all, such as NitroPenguin and foxy.

Mine was a nickname by my mate after a supply teacher called me Jimbob instead of James. The 2005 bit was random, due to the year I joined this BBS. You?

RXP

Used to post on hockey boards it was rxp91

rxp = red express, 91= Sergei Fedorov's jersey number. Hence rxp91

It's a name I thought was really silly. I made up an alias (I have several), each of them as corny as possible. This particular name is probably my favorite. It's supposed to bring up memories of slimy villains in 80s cop shows and the like.

Betty
04-29-2005, 10:46 AM
In my group of friends in highschool, there was another Michelle, so one day one of the girls goes "this is too confusing, let's call you Betty". And history was made. Although I wasn't called that too often, I adopted it as my screen name at the time and am too uncreative to change it.

I read an awesome Warhammer novel concerning a god-like entity known as The Nightbringer. I liked the sound of it, and added "Unholy" to make it, like, unique.

Plus I think The Unholy Nightbringer is catchy.

It certainly is.

Hey don't you have to make a new account to change your screen name??

Dive
04-29-2005, 11:09 AM
I used to be an Olympic diver. Special Olympics, that is. My comrades couldn't pronounce my name so instead they called me 'Dive' albeit with slurred speech and drool running down their faces.

TheHulaChick
04-29-2005, 11:14 AM
I'm a circus freak and I usually perform a hula hoop act. Awhile ago I travelled to a three day long festival and I spent my time there wondering around doing hula hoop performances and in my breaks people would come and talk to me and they'd be like 'hey you're The Hula Chick!' and it became my nickname.

I liked it so I kept it :D

Mentally_Challenged
04-29-2005, 11:16 AM
I happened to be wearing a certain jumper on a day on to the local un-amusing 'Theme Park'. Whilst on the log flume, I decided to put my hood up (came out very nicely on the photo), and my friend told me I looked 'Mentally Challenged'. Hence the name.

St Jimmy is the name of a VERY good Green Day song. I just recently learnt how to play it on the guitar.

To Unholynightbringer-

Five or six years ago I was frequenting the Korn board but only for reading. There was this hot chick whose name was 'Metal Goddess' or something. She looked all evil which made me love the name. I never knew the female version of God until then because my English still sucked. And I'm sorry I stick with the old spelling but I did not want to change it because I get easily recognised like this. Five years and still the same. And above all it grew on me.

No, I'm sorry. I made something online, like an account or something, and I called it Isolated Fury. When I arrived here, I figured it sounded cool.

well... i'm on the "nothing-creative" group.

once i searched for my name in different languages, and found Anya is my name (Ana) in russian or something like that... I like how it sounds, so i started to use it.

and, 82.. well... not much to say, you can figure it out: the year i was born

Me too! lol :D My name is kinda self-explanatory.

ThrashedThrasher
04-29-2005, 04:11 PM
Many reasons...

It started out as Trashed Thrasher after a local grind core band made the crowd go uncontrollably fucking wild, therefore I came home trashed and I had alreayd acquired the name "Thrasher" from my common spaz moments where I like to thrash whatever is near me around.

Trashed Thrasher changed to Trashed Trasher after I fucking ran into a garbage can that my friends them dumped on me.

Thrashed Thrasher is a lovely name my buddy Iain gave me. I had apparently (I don't remember shit) gotten beyond wasted at this house on his 24th birthday and I got pissed off at someone and went on one of my anger trips and totally fucking thrashed everything around.

Yep...that's how I got my name and for anyone who knew me as Killboy_Powerhead_2009 that one's pretty self explanatory and 2009 is the year I graduate.

I also use this username on Rate Your Music. In other places, i'm known as fre@k.

i chose 0r4ng3 because its my favorite color/fruit/etc, and the numbers make it feel like a user name, cuz "Orange" by itself is kinda boring, don't you think?

JoY

because I used to wish I was joyous, or whatever. JoY never suit me when I first started using it, but it grew on me & it does suit me now. besides, no matter what screenname I'd use, everyone that matter would keep calling me JoY anyway.

original_psycho
05-01-2005, 08:27 AM
My user name sucks. I used to use the name original_prankster on sites or whatever so I decided to make a change... And because one of my Yahoo IDs was original_psychopath666 (original, isn't it?), I decided to name myself original_psycho. I hate it.
I also have another account that I made because I hated this name so much. That account is named after an Eminem song, Rain Man. I only changed it as Rain Girl.
God, I suck at names.

TheUnholyNightbringer
05-01-2005, 08:30 AM
You were Rain Girl? Well, you learn something new every day.

And you had 1,000-odd posts on that account. So if you'd posted those posts on this account, you'd be nearing 10,000 now.

original_psycho
05-01-2005, 08:31 AM
Yes, I was. Then I gave my password to a few people and it started going crazy with that account. Then I changed the password again.

And what the fuck? Does the post count matter that much?

No, it was just an observation. Calm down.

Tizz has been my nickname since...forever...it used to be Tizzy actually...and it used to be a Hanson-thing...came from Tay, Ike Zac...their names...it used to be okay like that, cuz I was young and well...no problem, then I wasn't a Hansonfan, and it was okay like that, cuz it was a name from when I was little, and now it's NOT okay like that cuz I like them again and it's just pathetic. Anyway, Tizz is still my nick and it stands for nothing now ;) WCM called me Tizzalicious a lot though, and I thought it sounded nice, soooo...that's where it came from :)
