Hi all,

I was wondering, when you all were signing up for this new board, to you keep the username you used on the old Nickdisk, or did you take on a new one?

If you chose a new one, what was your old one?

Here's what I have to say...

You may remember me as catwings. I decided to go with jadeflowr82 as it is a username I have been using for various mesageboard accounts, screen names, and even one of my main emails. I have also been using it for the past eight years, so I am very familiar with it.

As for its meaning, it just came to me one day, add the 82 for my birth year, and I got my screen name. And it's stuck pretty much since.

What about you all? I'd love to know more about yours Sourire

~Mara

You're never going to believe this but, seriously... My name is Thomas and I just realised one day "Ohmigod, I can shorten it to Tom."

And the rest, as they say, is history.

Well my name is in fact Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Reginald. E. Feathering-Walthamstone III, but for shits and giggles I call myself Colin on a Nick forum. Of the wittyness of it all!

I have had this username since I was posting on Nick.com after Abracatastrophe (Abracatastrophe is what really turned me on to FOP, so I began doing internet research). I had one day in Winter/Spring '03 used the name in the "enter name here" part of Rollercoaster Tycoon after winning a scenario, (I was thinking of Amanda saying heyhey, knock knock in the Hillbilly Moment for some reason) so I wrote Hihey and added random numbers to the end of it. Before that, the only thing i did online was Diablo II, and my account was EARache.

Sleeping Beauty is my favorite movie. Aurora is her princess name and Briar Rose is her Peasant name, so I picked the name aurora_rose.

I was Bigfan05, because at the time of registering on another board (Spongebob Square Board) I was a huge Spongebob fan at the time. I was going to register Bigfanatic after the "I'm Your Biggest Fan" ep, but for some reason missed the 'atic' off the end. 'What's the SBSB registration got to do with the Nickdisk registration?' I hear someone ask. Well as some of you know SBSB is an emerald board and when you register for one, you can login to others. When I registered it was right before Nickdisk was upgraded. Oh and 05, well, because, well self explanory really. Anyway enough said about that now.

I decided (as mentioned on another thread) to have a different username. Don't get me wrong I still love Spongebob, but I'm not really a big fan anymore (I think Nick has something to do with it, with the repetition of repeats). Also I heard that this board wasn't going to be strictly aimed at Nick, although it has a Nick section. I also got bored of the username as well and wanted a change.

'So how did you come up with your username?'

It was just a random thing I thought of which has no connection to anything and I wanted it to be different and unique. A name very unlikely to used by anyone else. The numbers are not so random, they are related to my birthday, the month or day (can be used for both) and year I was born. I can also call myself doodle(s) if I want.
