The Life Story Of Me
By Splize

The first nick I had (On EZ) was Xtreme_Master because I was planing to piss off Chrono-Cross and The Namek (Thats the only reason I joined so I just wrote the first thing I though about myself) Then I had 3 Side account which were Dick (Got Banned) Dick2 (Got Banned) and Return of Dick (Also Got banned). Those three accounts got banned cuz I harrased EZ members(I got my personal reasons for doing it). So then the forum was restarted so my name became Xtreme. Then after another restart it became Splize, which I made up myself, which I dont use that much anymore.

That's a long story. I only tell you that I made this nickname around 5 years ago. Want to know more, try to ask Dhampyr or Modfather. Probably they'd know. :p

Zapotech
June 11th, 2005, 17:27
There is a tribe called the Zapotec which founded the Mayan civilization.

Aristotle described Atlanteans using spear-throwers(known as "Atl Atl"), which was a primary weapon of the Maya along with bows. I believe the Maya are whom Aristotle was referring to. I developed this theory in a dream where Mayan shamans revealed this knowledge to me. There have been many times that I have recieved prophetic and revelatory visions while I dream.

Long story short, I added the H at the end because it combines the ancient with the modern. It also symbolizes my affinity with the mystical wisdom of pre-Columbian civilizations and my love for Archeology in general.

thrice now you have refered to my hair in various threads. i get the feeling that you would like to stroke it, to feel the luxurious flowing locks as they slip between your fingers, to admire its near self-illuminating properties. in order for this to transpire, you must incur all travel expenses, and i also charge 40 dollars for each minute of 'hair handling'. all conact to be strictly platonic.

Wow dude... Way to take a statement personally huh?

Nice sig. Makes me think your not a mod elsewhere, Because as you said, "they're in the business of stomping on noobs who break them."

A mod must first KNOW the rules in-order to enforce them. ;)

yeah, but i'm not a mod here. i don't care about KNOWing all the rules, because there are people like you hanging around who point it out when people break them. thanks for providing that service. most rules are just common sense anyway. posting a sig that is 3 and a half pixels too big usually isn't that big a deal if the perpetrator takes care of it, as i did... as you can see. i don't want to break the rules or anything

oh and i AM a mod, really i am. at another emulation site as chance has it. but i don't go around bragging about it or posting the link or anything because that might be 'against the rules'. somebody just got stomped on in the 'introduction' forums for putting an ad in their sig... for something, i dunno, the guy changed it. things seem to be pretty strict around here, the mods are doing a good job of noob stomping i see. :cool:

Tweekpatrol
November 2nd, 2006, 01:07
I got mine from a south park forum, I just thought of a random name, which was Tweekpatrol cause Tweek is my favourite character. And now im using it everywhere.

Tomtaru
November 2nd, 2006, 20:21
Well I found mine with a little brainwashing:p
I like the "Tenchu" series and the male ninjas names ended in -"aru" mmm I thought I'll use that

Then came the other part...I like DragonballZ so I thought all saiyan names are derived from vegetables so I took my favourite wich is a tomato and merged it with the -aru part and got "Tomaru","Tomataru" and "Tomtaru" and I picked the one that sounded best in my ears:p and I have been using it for everything ever since.

Recently I have found that Tomtaru is an anagram for Mutator:p so now when I want to place a permanent mark on a public place I write : "ElMutatore":p Bart Simpson style:p

Edit: It has come to my mind the correct English word is not brainWASHING but brainSTORMING:p

Interesting..

Had a few names over the years since 97, but this one seems to fit me lately. I'm a shore person, but live in hellhole Arizona, yes.. that's right. Tried of the rude people out here, making me angry over the years. They watch you fall and stand over you like vultures... heh.. sounds bad, but it is how it looks. From back east, where people are normal and actually say "Hi, how ya doing" instead of blank stares of doom... I'm a drifter out here in the desert, lost and look like the "beaten-up" war-hero holding a bloody battle-ax - how I feel after people putting me though nonsense and aggravation... Can't drive without "hemorrhoids" behind ya and "tumors" in front of you. Road-rage, anyone? Now you see, my frustration... Went by my nickname before, my friends call me by, hence switching my last name and first around with a little re-spelling (Use on my community only these days), though other names before were based on the mood I was in, started when I moved to this hellhole I'm in. :p Don't know if it sounds great, but using it for now. Probably keep it for a while, but now yea know. ;)

i actually have two that i use alot. i know that this is an old post, but i'm still rather new and i may as well tell you people about it. of course i 'm using the name seymoregutz.....the last part of it refers to one of the bosses in a mega man game...but it was an after thought. i also use killmoreghouls when i'm on msn. they are game names that i use when i play video games. i have one other, but it's not a name i want to divulge to the younger folks...i think they're getting enough bad stuff from tv and other lesser grades of media.:D

Bladex1200
January 8th, 2010, 04:24
I got my name from an old game I used to play about business. I would go bankrupt a lot, which killed my account. Thus, I began adding numbers (first 1s, then 10s, then 100s) until eventually I finally got a break and didn't go bankrupt my 1310 time: Bladex1200 (the reason it's the 1310th time is cause I kept adding 1s instead of hundreds up until a moderator banned me at Bladex125). Weird, huh? The name stuck... so that's who I am now. xD

snagwell
April 1st, 2011, 08:13
I used to be annoyed by those snackwells cookie commercials where a bunch of middle aged women chase this snackwell cookie man around. i just ended up calling that guy snagwell one day.

Snagwell became a main character in these stories i terrorized my friends younger sister with. In the stories, Snagwell the cookieman would carry a magic skateboard and he hit my friends sister over the head with it. He then turned her into a surplus sized bag of oats. Snagwell threatened her that she would be used in his oatmeal cookies unless she won a dance competition against Yori the Bulgarian plumber. Yori won the competition but luckily the bag of oats managed to escape on Snagwell's magic skateboard. She survived, but she forever remains a bag of oats, who must feed herself to horses if she ever wants to escape her horrible fate.

I thought that story might be amusing. It sure can freak out a 6 year old girl. Haha.

Peetr
April 8th, 2011, 16:43
Peetr is a mispelling of my actual name.

I also use Raffles - the main character of a novel from E. Hornung. I also use themanwhoateasandwich - a parody of the David Bowie movie from Nicolas Roeg.

Yep.

Random words put down as one. I've never used a nickname that I always use. I think I'm really going to try and start doing that. I've been using the nickname brokenbot for awhile. I got that back when I played a fps shooter. There was a bot clan. I got into it. I left it over some stupid shit. It was the best clan in the game and they didn't care about "how good you were". Long live the broken bot! It was also a pretty intelligent community. I wish I still kind of played the game. I got an email a while back about the revival of the game and how a lot of newly designed maps from users were coming back up. I wish I would of took that invitation up. It was the game that really got me into computers(Syntax taught me how to navigate directories in windows xp lmao!!!! -- thankz SYNTAX!!!!!!!!!!!!). There were so many l33ts there. hahaha

Green Blockhead
September 29th, 2011, 14:55
From a game called Blockland. It's a really cool sandbox game, and the player is called a Blockhead and I dress all in green, so that's when I got my name, Green Blockhead.

If I can't use Green Blockhead, I'll use GreenBH for short, or Green-Blockhead.

Hopefully the origin of my name is pretty clear. I was painfully unoriginal in choosing it, but I have yet to stick with an Internet pseudonym for more than a few years, anyway.

May 28th, 2012, 19:38
I have gone by Rodimus Primal since I began posting on message boards. I'm a huge Transformers fan and Beast Wars was big at the time so Optimus Primal was the leader at the time so I chose Rodimus Primal as something different.

Of course you all know the Belmont clan,a family cursed to battle Dracula when he rises from the dead in the famous Castlevania videogames. :D

Any relation to the Van Helsings you think?

This handle is a newer one borne from a mistake on a package label; it should have said "F. Lanks". Usually I use "Evercaptor" which I designed to evoke "cardcaptors" back when I started out on the net, trawling CCS fansites. I also, rarely, use the name Lovepooky, which stuck after I made a second account on some website to do a thing (not get round a ban, believe it or not) which I chose because there was a Garfield book sat next to me (His teddy is called Pooky).

The Life Story Of Me
By Splize

The first nick I had (On EZ) was Xtreme_Master because I was planing to piss off Chrono-Cross and The Namek (Thats the only reason I joined so I just wrote the first thing I though about myself) Then I had 3 Side account which were Dick Bluestacks (https://bluestacks.vip/) Lucky Patcher (https://luckypatcher.pro/) Kodi (https://kodi.software/) (Got Banned) Dick2 (Got Banned) and Return of Dick (Also Got banned). Those three accounts got banned cuz I harrased EZ members(I got my personal reasons for doing it). So then the forum was restarted so my name became Xtreme. Then after another restart it became Splize, which I made up myself, which I dont use that much anymore.

:tmnt:

Two words semi-randomly put together. That goes for about 75% of the nicks I have.
