Me personally, I've never really had one, so I go by my middle name. I guess I just don't have a nickname or taken the time to think of a very cool name.

Nomad
Not dumb enough to get a custom title


Posts: 2723

My handle "Nomad" was inspired almost exclusively from This Song:



I've been fortunate enough to snag the nickname at many of the communities I frequent before anyone else could, however it's become pretty common the more populated sites. I started also using "TheDigitalNomad" which has it's own backstory I'm too lazy to type out, but long story short I've defined it as a synonym to the phrase "web surfer." When THAT is taken, I'll usually use something like "digital-nomad" or "dignomad"

It seemed fractionally less retarded than "Doom1982" when I was trying to think of a username on the spur of the moment, so I went with it.

You don't need one, it's enough to have an XBox Live account for Games for Windows-games. ;)

Phobus
Forum Staple


Posts: 2880

Last time, I said:
Back on AvP2 I went by Head Hunter (bit of a given there, really...)

Of course, I branched out into the wider world of the internet and such an unoriginal name was taken. So I thought Doom, though moons and... spelt it wrong. Hence Phobus.

I am now allegedly a member, which would imply I've been posting more than I thought. I'll get round to putting my avatar on here at some point, I'm sure.


And I also said:
This avatar was modified from the redone version of my original avatar. Wills did the remake, I added the border - but as the avatar was originally 64x64, I needed to trim it to get it on here. Hence removing the moon and most of the face.


However, since then I've become regulated. As a bit of additional interest I find Phobus tends to be taken these days, as does Phobos. I used to get round this by using Phoban, Phober, Phobot or Phobic but I decided standardising would be a good idea. So on YouTube I have one or two videos up as ZDPhobus... and XBox Live I'm on as CressyJ (I don't use gold so there's no point in adding me). I will one day get round to coming up with some sort of standard if I ever have to though.

Back in 9th grade, I had my name written on my notebook in caps. Being bored in the middle of health class, my friend scrawled a circle through the A, and thus the legend of Danarchy was born.

Recently, some faggot stole my name and became famous as an urban explorer, so I'm a bit annoyed. I considered changing my handle, but I've been using it for well over a decade, so I don't think so.

I am Heavy Weapons Guy, and THIS is a dead horse being beaten. :p

This is the only place where I use this handle. When I signed up I used the HWGuy in TFC a lot and it didn't hurt to have the HWGuy as a default avatar. Since then I favor being the Soldier.

I think I've been going as Chow Yun Thin for about seven years now. I got the name from a mission in the first GTA where you're told to kill a bunch of triads. To assist you in this task, an NPC with this name follows you around and so I took the name.

Which is clearly a bit of wordplay on Chow Yun Fat.

It's a mispronunciation of "Cooperstown" which was a nickname someone tried to give me in elementary school. The mistake stuck instead.

I thought it was clever and memorable, or at least more original than using AlTeRnAtInG cApS or adding Solid Snake or a bunch of numbers or Xs to a name. The numbers and Solid Snake I get, but I don't understand what's up with the Xs.

I got mine (I'myourtarget) from an old Timesplitters Future Perfect video on Youtube over 5 years ago. I don't think that video's around anymore, actually...

Oh, it's not a Gamertag like on XBox live or anything, I don't have an XBox, but I just mean my username on most other games.

I was tired of using my band name (partition36) for my handle, and needed a change elsewhere. So a contraction of Yuki because it's a nice girl name that I like that means snow (which I also like), and b1t/bit to show I'm a computer geek.

It's supposed to be Doom, but I changed it to Deum to make it original.
Reaper is from the Doom movie (Karl Urban's codename).

It's the name of an improvisational piece by French band Magma, aka "La Musique des Spheres". Its enigmatic name fascinated me for awhile til I discovered a probably explanation related to chord names.

For years I've always used some variation of skaman. It's due to one of my favorite bands (Operation Ivy) the skaman was also my first tattoo.
