So where does your username come from?

Quite simple, I was setting up an account in my iPhone 5 (Yes, an iPhone 5), and the phone asked me about my name, and I just wrote the first thing that came to my mind, which was Lol 6. I liked it so much that it ended up being my online name.

 

It was like 6 years ago

off topic but damn reading your message i just had the strongest sense of seja vu i even knew what would be the end of it

weird

I used to call myself Thepezdispenser after an episode of Seinfeld. But later on started going by Mrbaskerville. It's another sitcom reference. There's this old danish show where one of the characters recieves a huge doll he calls "MrBaskerville", in this subplot he desperately tries to figure out what the doll can do, but he ends up exclaiming: "Mrbaskerville, you can't do anything". It's weird, especially in english, but it was really funnny and made sense at the moment, trust me.

Kraftwerk is the best.

In one of the earlier schools I went to (I might've been around 10 years old at that point), students had individual unique usernames that were given to them based on a particular pattern. We'd make use of them on the occasion we got to use computers, which wasn't always. The username I use on the internet is the same as the one I was given.

The username pattern was having the first two letters of the first name, and the first three of the last name, and then a number. There's potential to guess my name from this, but it's not enough info to go off in my opinion.

I don't remember why I decided to keep the name, but I don't think I feel right being called anything else anymore.

Only exception is when I replaced the 0's with O's on twitch cause my username was already in use there somehow. I didn't mind being called Alperoo on twitch that much, but it doesn't happen much anymore. Mostly because I don't see new streamers, or watch streams much at all currently.

I got username when I was interested in panturkism (or panturanism) and decided to learn some turkic languages. "Taw Tu'lki" was taken from kypchak languages (bashkir, tatar, kazakh and smth else).

"Taw" means "mountain" and "tu'lki" is "fox". So, Taw Tu'lki is "Mountain Fox". Alternative of some english and japanese usernames with animals.

Someone on Discord recently had this to say about it, but left the group before I could respond. Anyone know what they're on about and if I should be at all concerned?

I laughed so hard at that the first time I read it, my first thought was maybe they were referring to your musical and modding skills?  As in "I doubt anybody could replicate that legacy" but they accidentally said "would wish to" instead of "could."

Could be totally off the mark though.

I was a kid, horny for Minecraft and thought PeterBeGood was a good name. Later shortened it to PBeGood4.

I don't think I've ever actually answered this question.

 

Initials.

Long ago I started using 3180 as a reference to a certain well known fictional character's birth date and year, no month.

When I was 12, I created my first hotmail account. I asked a friend what would be a 'cool' sounding name, and he said "idk my dude maybe Arrowhead and like 12 because you're twelve." So I just went w/ it, and have been using it ever since - minus the twelve now, though.

It's the same as my steam name, as a joke I picked the most obnoxious gamer name I could think of. Ironic since I'm not a big reefer head and don't eat doritos.

Nah, it would've been more obnoxious if it was 69 instead of 420

I made it up. 

 

EDIT: It's actually from Norse mythology.  Which I am a fan of.

Mine was a Quake 2 skin I always used to play as. He reminded me of Doom, at a time when Quake was all the rage.

 There is a demon in some ancient demonological writings named Bael or Baal, I always assumed it was just a different spelling.

Liiitle cringe worthy for my UN but essentially, back in like 2013 or so I watched My Little Pony and I fell in love with the show. After some time I decided to make myself my own OC, Dynamite. At first she was meant to be an Alicorn who couldn't fly or do magic (don't ask >_>).

After some time I realised that's kinda pointless so the wings and horns were removed (also made her fur lighter in colour) and then she became an Earth pony!

 

As for "Kaitorn"... I literally just vomited the rest of her name out of the blue: "Dynamite Teardrop Alexandra Kaitorn"; decided to use her first and last name and bam! DynamiteKaitorn became my UN!

 

As for Heich, my favourite letter of the alphabet is H. (DON'T ASK. XD)

I was trying to make a quad damage powerup as my first doom mod but dropped the idea. I kept the sprite around as my profile picture though, but I lost the sprite a while ago. It was a simple reskin of the blursphere with a Q on it. Alas, Q Dude. Hopefully the lazy part will get chopped off soon

A better question is how the hell do you pronounce my username?

Hmm, the demon Baal in Ash vs Evil Dead was pronounced like "ball" so I figure like that?  Lol

I have been looking to modify Vanilla Doom, so I had an idea to remake doom in doom, like in the React to the username thread - "Let's redo doom!"
