    Hi, just thought it might be interesting to explain why peopele chose the names they use on TS.

    I will start off by saying i chose Rik as my name is Richard and because of the really old arcade machines that only let you put 3 letters in on a high score.

    There must be some much more interesting stories!:) So lets hear them.

    This isn't really interesting at all but Beef_Jerky4104 has been my alias for 5 years. I've recently abbreviated it to Beef4104, but still.

    Don't we already have a thread like this though?

    I just merged 3 threads. This should get everyone up to speed on some of the older guys, and the new people can get their own entries, all in one thread.
  6. mine is fairly obviously game related. i used to play tons of Legend of Zelda games. those games were fantastic. twilight princess clinched it for me. that made link one of the most awesome characters for me.

    so about 6 years ago, i wanted a screen name. naturally i wanted to put link in it...but so many other fans already had the name so i had to add all those numbers and an o to it. i make it my username just about everywhere because i've used it for so long. it's almost second nature. i could walk around and have people just call me link and i'd respond as if it were my name.

    now that i'm in college i occasionally use the first letter of my real name, and then my surname as the username. just for important things that i might need to remember.

    but yeah....hi. i'm a legend of zelda fan.

  8. God Of Mana

    God Of Mana TechSpot Paladin Posts: 493

    Well I named my self God of mana because at the time i was quite obsessed with the game Sword of mana. Everything for me was Mana.. I'm past it
    and wish I could have put my real name instead of that.

    (hmm i wonder if a mod could help me or something. XD
  9. Cinders

    Cinders TechSpot Chancellor Posts: 872   +12

    I usually go by Cinder Phame, but that name is a little to fantasy orientated to work at a tech site. I thought I’d go by Cinder but that was taken, so I added an s and away I went. I also go by Texas, Texas Ranger or Tejas. Yes, I do live in Texas real close to Houston.

    I was creating a Dungeons & Dragons character about twenty years ago, and I needed a name, so I came up with Sender Phame, but a few friends threatened to rip out my liver unless I changed the name to Cinder. Seeing the error of my ways I quickly changed the name and have been Cinder ever since.
  10. Daveskater

    Daveskater Banned Posts: 1,687

    the background to my name is fairly simple:

    i'm Dave
    i skate :D
    pure and simple, really

    i've also been using it for a few years now on various websites including hotmail, but i have a much older hotmail account which i use more often and registered to TS with

    if Daveskater isn't available (which funnily enough it hasn't been a few times) i'll stick 89 or 360 on the end

    ooh, i even use it on eBay as well ;)

    Ok i know mine is least interesting but here we go.
    You see, when ever i have to sign up for a site i can't think of any names to use, i just like to make it nice and simple and as you may have guessed Hamas is my name and to make it a bit interesting i added 123 instead of random numbers like 7676594938390913948802 :D

    I better be careful here...

    Coit {or Coight} is an Australian euphamism for , um, backside.

    greatman05 TS Maniac Posts: 429

    Well...I have no business here, but whatever...Greatman05 is just simply a name I came up with that is usually the default name I use when signing up an account for any forum website...sometimes, I change the number to greatman07, but usually, greatman05 is always special meaning, or reason, just is there...

    "De long envergure" is French for "far-reaching." I thought it was a good fit for an online community.
