For me it came about when I was in middle school, I played a game (Maplestory) where hacking was extremely rampant. I was grinding by killing some monsters and this guy's toon comes into the area I was in and starts flying all around the room instantly killing everything on the screen. I was angry and tried thinking of the most creative insult I could muster, and my brilliant middle school mind came up with "Haxasaurous". I thought it was so great that I went by that for years after, and yes, saurus was misspelled the entire time. A friend I made in a different game years later would always shorten it to Haxa, and I've gone by that ever since, at least if it's available. I also still kind of like going by Haxasaurus spelled correctly if I can't get Haxa.
Well If i remember correctly i didnt had a different Name when i started a YouTube account and also when i saw a Brazilian Youtuber making a stream doing SM64 Color codes i decided to Join up and Tell what would be the color also when It was done i decided to Name up my Mario recolor: davisudo2000
Woah, seeing alot of long text stories make me know even more the simple and boring man i am myself. I got it since.. dunno, maybe 10 years ago, maybe less, i was a Sonic fan then, and i still am, then i said, hey, what if i take Sonic's japanese name, and add two numbers that can be easily remembered. Then that's how my nickname for everything was born
In fact, my name sounds very good in Russian. It takes root very well for people. I like it.
Mostly they call me "yfyfy" "yfyfka" "ufy" "fyfyfy" and it sounds very good (again, in Russian)
As an acquaintance told me, "your name sounds friendly, you probably don't want to harm anyone here. I judge it only by your name. ̶y̶o̶u̶ ̶c̶a̶n̶ ̶u̶s̶e̶ ̶t̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶e̶t̶r̶a̶y̶ ̶s̶o̶m̶e̶o̶n̶e̶"
People in English call me [waifwaifwai...] what is really wrong. No, they are actually right, but the context is not right.My name should be read as... in fact, I don't even really know how to write the transcription correctly.
after some time: well, I read this and came to the conclusion that reading my name in English (for me) is correct like this: [yufyufyuf...] (although this contradicts the rules of open and closed syllables (I don't know exactly what it is called in English)).
after some more time: well, there is no such sound in english lol
I've always had a certain affinity for the concept of time. Pondering what exactly time is, it's exact nature, how it works, if different people perceive it differently, etc. The Time Gears in PMD2, as their name implies, are gear shaped. This implies they are intended to work within some form of machinery, such as clockwork. However, they also have a snowflake engraved onto their design, something that can change greatly given the passage of time, from it's formation to when it melts. As such, at the time of me creating my forum account here, this was what I chose to represent myself with.
Those of you who were around before I became active again might also remember I used to use a Lucario avatar, which although was never my favorite pokemon (That title goes to Typhlosion), did act as a popular, recognizable figure hinting towards my namesake without being too obvious. In retrospect, I probably should have used a Grovyle, but it's not really that big of a deal.
More recently I go by another name on other websites and such, but I'd probably prefer to keep that separate from my activity here so I'll just keep the exact name to myself. If anyone manages to figure it out (Which isn't super hard if you know what kind of things I like, something I hardly keep to myself), congratulations. Keep it to yourself please.
i was thinking along the lines of "game master7" when i was making my account and my first mod was going to be a short level that kinda looked like a maze. (it was rejected) so i went with "maze master7"
for pretty much several years without telling anybody my dysphoria got bad without me even realizing it was dysphoria until about a year ago after going on egg_irl where i went ahead and adopted "shelly" as my new name and became a girl and slowly began the process of being comfortable of who i really was
admittedly i didn't tell anyone else at first, haven't really told my ex-friends (they probably forgot who i am) but i came back to the forums and found out that mystic got the boot so i asked the mods to change my name and that's how i got my new name
i haven't gotten around to getting back in the srb2 scene but just maybe in the future im too lazy
Basically, I first joined during a time that I had just found out about how one can take a screenshot on windows, which is done by pressing the windows key and the "prtscn" key. I had just found out about it and was pretty much overusing it. Then I actually made an srb2 forums account, I had seen the forums before and downloaded plenty of mods but with an account I could do much more, so when it came time to make my username I thought of something simple that could be a good username. I looked to the prtscn key on my keyboard and came up with an idea. "what if I just took what it sounded like, made it into one word and made that my username?" obviously I did and the rest is history.
