Why did you choose your username?

Posted 01 July 2009 - 06:00 PM

When the sign-up for DIC asked for a username, what went through your head???
I'm not asking for personal info, just where did you get your name?

It might still be. Many people will post in anew thread of the same subject even if a previous one exists, so wait and see :)

Because Winstin was a nickname that was given to me when I was 15. Needless to say, it stuck like fucking superglue! The 'ology' just kind of makes it a little more unique. I used to hate having a nickname, I used to deny it. For a while there I didn't know who I was. But then, after a few years, when I realized it wasn't going to go away, I just accepted it. I figure hell, there are plenty of nicknames to get stuck with that are a lot worse than Winstin. :)

I was told if I didn't use this name - the DIC gods would slap a nice big mushroom print across my forehead.

hehe, mine has been with me for years - since primary school.
It's changed since then... different name for different circumstances, but it is all based around Quin.

i originally signed up with "digitpulse" but that was pretty gay so i got it changed.

I chose this one because it's quick to type and that.

Because my usual handle was taken :(
I normally use frosty and I've been using it for years with no problems, but just recently other people seem to be beating my to the punch, so to speak. numeric was something I just pulled out of the air, although I'm quite fond of it now and use it on a few sites :)
