    Because of the way your name is all mashed together, I always read it as Happy lil elif, thinking you are some kind of programming nerd.

    Actually, just force of habit from the days when Robot Satan would take you if you tried to put a space in a user name.

    Probably the new annoying "xX Xx" name thing I've seen is

    "iTz ____"

    and also alternating caps. At one point the entire leaderboard on www.halocal.com was alternating-caps gamertags.

    My name is boring and only serves to underscore my complete lack of creativity.
    It's my initials followed by my birthday.

    But I've had it since I was an AOLer. It's my name on probably a dozen forums (of which I post on maybe 4) and it's my email address. I occasionally think about changing it, but never do. I don't know what I'd want to change it to and am too lazy to bother with changing it. even if it gets me ignored by most people for having a number name.

    1)MJ is basically 2 of my initials since M is another forumer here from the artist's corner.
    LetterThirteen is my PSN name I made to be ambiguous and it's basically the same thing as M, which I started using since Perfect Dark on the N64.

    2)I don't judge people but if they have cleverly built names like RandomBattle and DisruptiveSmell then they get an ok in my book. xXNameXx and SSJ Saiyan whatever and alternate spelling versions of Strife, Sephiroph and other FF names are instant losers in my book.

    My name comes from an old and obscure genesis game that probably few people around here played, named

    250px-Aocover.jpg

    While it wasn't even my favorite RPG at the time, I do remember liking it and thought the name was pretty cool. Plus it was awesome because it had 1 or 2 Players and 8 Meg Power

    As for other people's handles or names with Xx420xX things like that, I don't immediately think they are bad people or anything, just that they are either really young or immature like that. I can't really hate on them since I remember doing the whole Xx thing back in the old AOL days.

    When they start ACTING like retards is when they get the /ignore

    TacoMan has been my call sign since Counter Strike. It's derived from me being called "The Mexican" by friends in high school (I'm really half-filipino/caucasian) and I was born in Tacoma, so I thought it appropriate.

    I also love tacos, but who doesn't?

    My XBL tag is JudoJedi, which is an alliterative amalgamation of two things I love: Star Wars and Judo. It's got a nice ring to it and it's almost symmetrical in a way.

    Extreaminatus is a buthering of Exterminatus: which is a 40k reference to bombing a planet into a smoking orb of uselessness. It's like Exterminatus, but instead of turning it into a big ball of nothing, it makes every one extreame and want to skateboard and surf and do awesome things, all the time.

    My XBL tag is lilwoodenpuppet, because ButImARealBoy was taken (I like Pinocchio and the first Shrek).

    My old name used to be OreganoWarrior, becuase I was 10 and I thought it rhymed.

    I've never really stuck to one innerweb alias, but I started using Guy Montag when I got into TF2. I wanted a name fitting for a pyro, my favourite class, and remembered the literary classic in which a dude burns a lot of stuff and people with a flamethrower. Since then I've used Guy Montag whenever I can.

    The one day I played TF2 at a friend's house, I used the pyro and I named myself Trash Can Man.

    Yeah well my name is never taken.
    Pfft, you don't know jack about names being taken.

    Some of you might know my story of my current name, ahem:

    Anyway, I joined here almost six years ago. So I was still fifteen, going on sixteen I guess. But for some reason my teenage mind was on FF7, you know how it goes.
    But I really hated the stigma that goes along with a name like that. I really grew out of it quick as I started using the net more and expanding more into games in general. Anyway, I didn't want to change my name, it always felt like when people on a board change their name or avatar they seem to disappear. I'm sure you all know what I mean. But a while ago some mod started a thread for changing your name. He was pissed about all the people asking him so there was a catch. You post your new name in the thread and he would flip a coin. Heads and you would get your name, tails and he picked one. I figured if I changed my name to MM it would be cool and still identifiable. And hell, I've used the same sig and avatar for years, who could miss my name anyway? But yea, I lost... Don't ever wanna change though!

    Apparently he revelled in the fact that he could change the names of "Boogie Wonderland" and "Blame It On The Boogie" to be "Dougie's Underpants" and "Blame It On Big Dougie".
