Hey, how did you choose your nickname? where'd the idea come from?

When I was younger (about 10 years old), I had those whole fantasy world in my mind. Atresica was some devine being with a rather odd sence of humour, often misunderstood for its appearance, mostly trying to help out people but accidentily creating even worse situations at the same time. Eventually, the name stuck in my head and when I had to choose a screen name for the first time, I choose this one

Currently, Atresica is also the name for a being I once drew (first came the logo, then the being), but it isn't how the original Atresica looked like.

My real name is Mor Shemesh. When I opened my Hotmail account a few years ago, I tried to have the shortest nickname possible. I first tried m, then mo, then mor, then mors, etc.... The first one available was morshem, and since then I use morshem at every site where I have an account.

hmmm....i use Twinsen at every other board, 'cus i REALLY love the name I really struggle to stop myself from writing twinsen at the end of every post

Lembo's just a nickname i have derived from my last name which is actually nothing like Lembo, its a long story.....

I was thinking of something along the lines of 'Kill Your Idols', which i just really like the idea of, or something a bit Jedi, 'cus its cool Buddhism with lightsabers But i just went with lembo in the end, more for fun and amusement than anything else...

Incidentally, Atre, LOVE that idea

Lembo...

HomerSimpon> but it's OLD.

When i registered, i didn't plan to stay long, i just wanted to ask a question, so i hastily jotted down "Anakin".

But, seeing how nice everyone is here i stayed.
But anyway, i think "Anakin" is a nice name regardless to StarWars.

until someone starts calling you 'annie'

Uhm, played Wing Commander since like 1990 and my first callsign I used in that was Cobra, used it for ages until Wing Commander 3 bout 5years ago and there was a character called Cobra so i thought bollocks and changed it to Phoenix coz I like the name and it has good logo possibilities. Then I used that in everything online too, sometimes I use Kiowan now which was a well devised name but comes from Privateer 2.

Heh the GTS Darkflame is for sale isn't it

Hm a while back people started calling me kaderoboy, I didn't have a clue what it meant Then I found out that it meant loyalty or destiny in Turkish so I was loyaltyboy :P Decided to keep the name here as well, thus Fidelis on IRC is the Latin translation, thanks to Medur

When there still was nothing known about Arthur, I thought a lot about how a LBA3 would be and which role the child would get. I thought about a girl named Twinsal after her dad. When I joined, I almost immediately thought of that name.

Double-J comes from my first 2 initials (JJ). It is also part of my email address. Not too many people call me Double-J in school, except for the broadcast club. Most of the time its Jeff or JJ.



/me doing my sports broadcasting at a soccer (european football) game. Our team lost. I was pissed. And the kid who took the picture was stupid, so I flipped off the camera. In honour of the Jesse pic too.

"Hoborg" Is a character from my other joint-favorite video game (along with LBA2), The Neverhood.

Actually, the whole reason I found twinsen's oddessy was because my mom bought me the game for my birthday because twinsen's hair looked like the main character from the neverhood's (klaymen). I thought "what a stupid reason to buy a game", but my mother's wisdom prevailed and I discovered the glory that is LBA2.

When I came to the mb22619 4 years ago I thought it was important to know where people were from, so that's basically why I got my MBN name. I never bothered to change nick when the MBN came since everyone knew me as my long nick.

The IRC nick was taken pretty randomly (little big gustav=LBGustav). I asked people of what nick I should have, and since none of the suggestions were good, I found out one on my own.^^

Strange as it may sound... years ago when I was looking for a nice internet nick I stumbled across a page with jetfighter pilots nicknames on it, and Wacko was between it. I liked the name so I took it, not really taking the true meaning of the word in acount.
