Yeah. Now answer the question, all-knowing member!

There are only two people here on DoomWorld who know what "rdwpa" stands for to begin with, and something tells me it'll stay that way. ;-)

Now we just need someone to adopt the name Ouranos and our Classical Greek Primordial pantheon will be complete.

Off this site, on imgur, primarily, I have an older username of Monitor1863, which comes from the Battle of Hampton Roads on March 9, 1863 in the American Civil War, in which the ironclad vessel USS Monitor faced the former USS Merrimack, CSS Virginia at that time.

Aside from the obvious connection which helped solidify me using it to this day (that and it's somewhat-uniqueness, in that I rarely need to use another name since I never use numbers), my username actually came from when I was younger and needed a name for starcraft 1's battle.net. My brother and I sat there at the computer for a bit, he got impatient with me being all indecisive and whatnot after the first couple stupid names I wanted were taken, we looked at the computer speakers we had and saw they either said Fouze or Fonze (the font made it impossible to tell) and so that's what I went with. Turned out it wasn't taken and I've stuck with it since.

"Yuki" is Japanese for "snow".  I winter immensely, especially when it's all snowy outside.  And since I speak some Japanese, it seemed fun to use the Japanese term for "snow".

 

"Raven" is because ravens are one of my favorite animals, and are important to me spiritually as well.  Plus there's one tattooed on my arm.

 

So.... YukiRaven.

Needed a new username to post about a Hexen related project (that I still haven't finished).

Was playing some Hexen PWAD where I was hacking apart a whole bunch of ettins in a swamp with Timon's Axe (might've been Stonegate, but I'm not totally sure... swamp where you hack apart a bunch of ettins isn't exactly the most unique setting in a Hexen WAD).

Put on a song by what was my favorite band at the time when I was done playing.

The rest is history; it's stuck pretty well since it's a unique handle that no one else uses anywhere.

Darn. I should've named myself Kratos Kronus. That way I can tell everyone that I eat children.

My original username was Piper Maru, named after my favorite X-Files episode of the same name. I have since changed it to Ex Oblivione, named after the prose poem written by H.P. Lovecraft.

I'm extremely sorry.

Good question. 

 

really don't want personal attacks

riveting doves will personify arseholery

renovating derelict warehouses pretty amazingly

real doomer with perfect aim

resident doppelgangers wait patiently aaaa

 

One of these days I'll get it...

Mine started as a play on words but afterwords I heard a song by Indica that mentioned that his name is Halfblind and so the name kind of stuck. My email reads HalfblindChaos and in hindsight that is the name that I should have chose. Either that or simply BlindChaos because if chaos was a real being then he would be blind.

You have a half-decent acrostic.

I'd like to hear @Xaser's story and find out if it came from X-Ray lasers like I think.

Again, it would be cool if Xaser appeared here.

Not my first username, but I was big in TF2 and played music regularly in-game. So it was first 'Eric is currently playing music' then 'Eric the Sandvich'.
