PostSubject: The Origin of Your Username   Wed Jan 12, 2011 7:50 pm

Title.
Just state how you got your username.

Okay so a long time ago, I was over at my friend's house playing Halo.
My name in real life (Jacob) was gonna be my username. My friend, being the control freak he was, only allowed himself to hold the controller. So he had to ask me what I wanted to be called and he had to type it in. I told him I just wanted to be called "Jacob" or "Jake".
He began typing, and he made a typo in the process and spelt "Java". We thought it sounded funny and cool so I stuck with it for the time being.

So, here's some ancient Jaconian lore for ye:
Jaco's original username was, in fact, Java.

So, how did Jaco come up?
Well, me and my friends all thought it would be cool if we had our own "companies". The idea was mine (I had already started selling homemade Pokémon Cards for a penny, so in a sense, I had a short-lived, unsuccessful, but somewhat existant, business).
All of our business names were portmanteaus of our surnames and of other more popular businesses.
What was mine? A portmanteau of Jacob and Company. Jaco. Am I not the cleverest person ever?
To this day, it has stuck with me. With many mispronunciations along the way.

Your turn.

You were SupaChu. You decided you like Kirby. You became SupaKirb.


As for me, my story is relatively uninteresting. It all started in a long ago time called "Fourth Grade". It was raining outside, so we had indoor recess that day. During indoor recess, we would play board games or computer games. I walked over to the computers and saw some kid, named Jeff (SPOILER ALERT: This is important later) playing on this strange newfangled website. He called it "Nick.com". It was apparently all the rage at the time. He showed me how to make an account, and I was immediately enthralled.
So when I got home, I began to make an account. It asked me to choose a "username". When thinking of a name, the first thing I thought of was Jeff, because he showed me the website. So I typed in "Jeff", only to find out the name was taken. So being the imaginative child I was, I added "er" to make it my own. My genius plan, however, failed. "Jeffer" was taken.
I was enraged! How could somebody steal all my ideas like that! So in a blind rage, I typed in something I was sure nobody could have taken: "Jefferlope".
I had succeeded! I had fulfilled my dreams of joining nick.com, and thus, Jefferlope was born. From that day on, I would live my legacy as Jefferlope until this very day.
*Closes the Big Boring Book of Jefferlopian History*
The End.

Alright.

In my past, I've had four usernames.

Machop90, which I used here and on Newgrounds. I had this because I was stupid.

Then Retros, which I used only here. I came up with while playing Super Mario Bros. 2.

Then, I got my Newgrounds username changed to Tetros. I just felt like changing it, so I never really came up with anything.

And a few months later, I asked for my Newgrounds username to be changed again, to Tetris, which I occasionally use int he Brawlroom chat. I came up with it after a few jokes about my Tetros username being a typo of Tetris, and I found out that Tetris wasn't a taken username. So, I got the change from Tetros to Tetris.

TOO MANY NAMES RARGH

Well, when I first discovered the art of making accounds on the internet I was wolfyscout11 (my youtube username which was in fact my first account xD) This name came about cuz my dogs name is scout and I was 11 at the time and then... idk I just wanted to add wolfy on for kicks |D This lasted untill recently actualy, but I decided to use Tiyou5 as my new constant.

The (incredibly long) history of how Tiyou5 came about and all the random names on xat? Well it started with my anime obsesion that has grown over the years. It started with Naruto (of course XD) and at first I didn't like it, I thought it was stupid but my cousin liked it and made me watch it while we waited to leave to karate lessons (I don't take them anymore otl they bored me). Then my friend (who is a bit.... skratch that a LOT on the crazy side) told me that it was anime and explained what anime was. I then delved into the start of my anime obsession. Then an old ex-friend of mine (the not so crazy one) told me about this show called Keroro Gunso and it was supposedly about alien frogs. I decided to watch it cuz it sounded random and from that I created my first fancharacter that hasn't died out of my favor yet! The infamous Tiyou! She went through 3 name changes otl. Originaly I started rping her on keroworld and joined in a fanbased platoon and I became CorporalGiroroTiyou, the Giroro in there was a cannon character that I had paired with Tiyou at the time. (but I hate OCxCannon now so I made an OC for her xD) At some point in here snease found me and dragged me around xat. I kinda remember comming to brawlroom once and then leaving, feeling intimidaited by all the people and the fast comments flying by. Snease dragged me somewhere else (I don't even remember where otl) and we dwelled there and we talked about banding together to make a little story. I became Nekonari for my character. Snease dragged Jeff over for a while to meet me and this is why he calles me neko while everyone else calls me storm XD Soon after Snease dragged me back over to brawlroom and I changed my name to StormThePachirisu just for the place. This is why everyone calls me storm~ I have gone through a bunch of random name changes all around this too but these are the most important. When I made an account on here I decided to make Tiyou5 a constant for my usernames now. BTW 5 is my fave number so I added it in |D

OMG PARAGRAPH OTL XD

You get a cookie if you read all that~

Ok first off: @ retros, that answers my wondering of what happened to machop
@ tiyou, I read the more indepth explanation and I want two cookies cause I had to do it on my IPod.
@ ???, you mean your name isn't Jeff? Should I still call you Jeff?

Finally, the explanation of my username. You see, I doubted your marathon skillz so I made my username after the games you were playing.
*closes the tiny book entitled: ILOVEKIRBY*

What's that you say? You wonder how Skralem came along? Another day perhaps, but then again I'm already in my narrator voice so I may as well continue. *in third person narration*
It was many years ago and the anonymous male we'll call Bob was walking around the house bored. He stumbled upon his older brother playing some sort of online computer game. Bob, a very intelligent and curious boy, asked, "Whatcha Doin'?".
"shut up and go away" his usual response thought bob. Bob then notticed his brother typing a "username". To bob's surprise his brother was quite creative and thought up the name Mrakat. "Darn" thought Bob who only uses language like that in his head, "I can't let peanut brain here out do me in creativity". Bob had many opertunities. First, in Leaf Green (the very same leaf green he plays today) he had to name his character. It ended up being Richie, his favourite character from pokemon puzzle league and later the anime. Bob didn'twant to show off his creativity quite yet. Some time passed and Bob forgot about his commitment to outdo his brother. Then, one day, a magical soon to be bob obsessed game came home. Animal crossing gcn, oh yeah! Bob was a rebel so his favourite colour is pink. As a result bob became Pinky, resident of Red-Jack (some creativity bloomed there.). Bob is still unaware of his promise to himself at this point. Then, like a kick to the pants, Bob's bro named his charActer Mrakat. Bob felt furious towards himsel and feels like it was time for his name. He waited pateintly though for the right time. One day for reason's he's ashamed of Bob got his Mother to buy him Pokemon Emerald. (Between you and me, he got it because he ran to a waterslide, slipped, then cut his forehead onthe slide's step. Yes, blood was gushing everywhere and the once white towel used to stop the bloodflow soOn became red. After 7 stitches Bob's mom rewarded bob with emerald, the promised bribe for keeping quiet.) Bob felt the bash to the head gave him the random name confidense he needed and thought up "Skralem". Now he thinks two bashes would've gotten him a better name but for now Skralem will have to do. Bob, excited, ran to his brother to show him his name but when he tried he heard: "shut up and go away". Bob was heartbroken, he felt better knowing he had Emerald though.
Well that was exciting, next day I'm writing how I discovered SMB. I'm also thinking about joining this majestic sounding "brawl room" if I get computer access.

Ok Jeff. Here I thought I knew you guys then it turns out you prefer false identities.Next you'll be saying Supa's name is really Bob. My bro never actually said shut and go away, knowing him he probably said nothing. That line just seemed to describe him better.

Well my name isn't actually Max either.

But to be fair, I haven't really told anyone on the Internet what my real name is. (Cept for people I know irl)

I dunno...

Mine came about in this game called Tannhauser, where one of the characters is possessed and can only repeat "Ozo, ozo, ozo...". My username was just "Ozone" for a while, but slowly morphed throughout several iterations of shortening and lengthening to what it is today.

I'm sure you were all quite entertained by that fascinating story...
