    So what was everybody's cringey teenage screenname?

    Mine was Anarchisto.

    It's my forum name, because I was still an idiot teenager when I signed up here, ha ha kill me.

    I'm pretty sure that, with a few exceptions (GameFAQs, maybe some others), I've been see317 since the AOL days.

    I used to spend a lot of time on SomethingAwful from 2000-2007. I still sort miss those guys. They had STANDARDS because you had to pay to post on their forums!
    I came to the PA forums because I was a cheapskate. Which reminds me I really should be contributing more to ClubPA now that I'm older and have more disposable income...

    Most of my screennames were randomly generated by the Dark Age of Camelot name generator.

    It is embarrassing that my lack of creativity means I’m still usin em years later but also they work so fuck it.

    My screen name is my initials followed by my birthday, so don't feel too bad about being uncreative.

    My screennames are all the worst idea I had when I was picking, so far it's worked out great!

    I started lurking here in like 8th grade? But I didn't sign up for almost a full year. My name comes from an...experience my freshman year of HS.

    After marching in a parade for band some friends and I went to the local movie theater (since closed, RIP). We bought a bucket of popcorn, and it was an actual paper bucket. Afterwards we were waiting for our ride home and got bored and for some reason I got the idea to cut eye holes in the bucket, put it on my head, tie a bit t-shirt around my neck and run around K-Mary yelling "I'm the Bucketman!". I was riding the rocking firetruck when they finally kicked us out. Its been my thing ever since. My mom even helped me make a Bucketman Super Suit for Spirit Week once.

    Juna_Starrider was (and is) my user name. It comes from a horrible Star Wars fanfic I wrote back in high school. Take a guess at which character she was a descendent of.

    Oh goodness, fanfiction.net was my jam. Imagine writing out stories about movie and tv characters, only to find out there was a whole community of people who did the exact same things.

    I was a moderator on a street team forum for an emo band.

    Not the official forum for the band, those nerds were posers, no the street team forum was where the real cool kids hung out.

    I colored the text in all my posts green.

    I had a pretty serious relationship with one of the other forumers in PMs and MSN Messenger.

    the one proper decision young me made was not getting into those weird like, teenage online relationships

    I was too busy using RPGMaker, the old translated by some Russian guy version, to make games starring me and all of my (four) friends

    and then I joined what was ostensibly a Smashing Pumpkins/Zwan fanboard and met a bunch of young adults (hipsters) who dumped albums on me and guided and molded me into the wreck that stands before you today

    I've been using Depressperado for a while, like a decade

    back when I enjoyed the Beatles, I was Nowhere Man for a minute

    also it's crazy that me and the internet are basically the same age, my birth heralding a new era for mankind

    I wrote Elder Scrolls fan fiction for a girl I fancied when I was 16, deluding myself that I was doing it to practice creative writing

    It culminated in a Thief crossover for some reason

    Luckily I never took the next step into publishing online, although I did write a Lemmings / Cannon Fodder crossover blog entry on the Hotmail blog platform

    in 7th grade, I wrote a totally sick story about a down on his luck fantasy assassin who was getting chased by the Lich version of a wizard he had killed

    it ended with him finding a baby, and giving it to a priest at a church before pulling a Batman and vanishing.

    I turned it in for a creative writing assignment in my English class and my English teacher gave me an A because it was relatively well written, but also called a meeting between her, my parents, me, and the school guidance counselor because seriously it was brutally violent

    my parents were like "yeah we live with this mafck, you think we never had to read his crazy stories?"

    I got my screen name from a comic book I wrote in the fourth grade with the intent on selling it to Nickelodeon because they had never made a cartoon about beavers before.

    Guess what cartoon came out six months after I had this idea.

    My user name here is actually my old one, and it was the name of my character in a Star Wars tabletop game years and years ago. A Jedi named Ceno T'Karr. I've drifted away from Star Wars since then, but I still dig the name.

    I once wrote two full scripts with me and my friends as D&D characters. I think the only reference I had to use for D&D stuff was the Baldur's Gate manual at the time.

    I had quite a few AIM usernames

    My most used one was OffcrCornjob because I thought the part in one of the MST3K Gameras where they thought a guy was named "officer cornjob" was really funny

    in science class we were learning about how things change to fit their environment and had to develop an alien species adapted to live on one of the planets in the solar system

    I chose Jupiter, and they were basically big sentient whales/manta rays that flew through the upper layers eating like, bunches of skyweeds?

    and a couple years later, I read a book by some fucking hack where Jupiter is inhabited by flying sentient whales/manta rays who ate fucking skyweeds

    I was furious at this psychic plagiarism

    Why does gamefaqs use the segasages font

    Cannon fodder was my first RPG when I were a young sprout. I gave all the individual little men backstories and would chat away while playing as if they were talking to each other. I spent ages just sitting on that screen with the queue of recruits and gravestones talking to myself.

    I would always keep Jools back in missions and send the others on ahead, to try and keep him alive as long as possible

    A lot of good Privates died to get that man to Major
