I was looking for a display name that was "original", and "fresh".

My screenname is used because its the one used for my youtube channel.
God knows how I came up with the name in the first place... probably a pun on 20th century fox or something...

One that isn't broken
My screen name, as per old topic, is because I joined Runescape, and wanted a good name. Put in bob as first, and Bob_George33 was a suggestion.

My game name is completely different to my screen name, as to stop people connecting my gaming to me easily.

not to get in trouble with the law, but...
1. Doesn't this count as bumping a topic?
2. Rioter, you did not even post your username's meaning ^^

My username is simply an old character name I had. Nothing too special.

Long story. When I was about 8 I used to go on the BBC website a lot when you could still sign in with a username. At this point I was mad about Sonic the Hedgehog and I also happen to be a boy. I tried 'sonicboy' and it was taken. Then I plucked a random word out of thin air, neon, added it to the front and submitted it. It worked and it has stuck ever since. It's stupid but it's NEVER taken on any websites :). It's not related to my real name in any way.

Microsoft Codename Whistler Build 2202 might actually be a post-RTM build of Microsoft Windows 2000 instead.

Do you have to always go offtopic?


Anyway, my username:

betacollector: What I do (collect betas :P)
21: random number

linuxlove happened by accident. I used to visit the Will it Blend? blog frequently and I use the name ibmcomputer. Well, when I found the SuperTux Fansite Forums (original now dead), I accidentally put in linuxlove instead of ibmcomputer and the name has just stuck since, though on Freenode I'd go around as ibmcomputer, Win2k or Cup_Holder.

History of my screen name: Clonekiller

A few years back I began to play Runescape, with the name Clonemann.

Several years passed, until it came to 2009. During this time my computer couldn't
play any game what-so-ever and I was un-aware of such masterpieces such as Half-Life and Half-Life 2.

I became extremely interested with mods for the game
Half-Life 2. While playing the game Zombie : Panic Source I decided that Clonemann was not a
proper name for the mod so I changed my name to Clonekiller.

That is how I got my screen name as I have today :D

I fail to remember which site it was, but I needed a good name to critique the content submitted to it. Alpha being the best, and critik being a different angle on critic... It summed up my intentions perfectly - the best critique provider with a different view on things. :p

I use a different pseudonym now which I'll be phasing out before I hit 18. Probably gonna drop all internet/real-life connections and completely separate them. New identity, new emails, new pseudonym... The main problem is that I can't think of a new one! This alone may prevent me from going incognito, heh... :P

How about just your real name? Can't get any better than that really.
