yeah, how did u get the the idea to make ut nickname the way it is now?

I'll start with mine.

when i was a total noob, i called myself SlayingWeiman, yeah that's n00b.
The slaying was jsut n00b, but Weimar is my last name and the guys on my baseball team always like to twist my name (I'm always called Weimar in RL) around and finally they called me Weiman once. Weiman it is.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

R-qaNe = arcane = dark, mysterious. I actually don't care about the meaning of it, it just sounds nice so that's probly why i'm using this one for like 3 years now. How i got it? You just take a dictionary.. but than i already figured i wanted something with 'R-q'...



Before i had this one i used to be 'KbE' which was an abrreviaton of 'KillerBee'. When is was a very little nooblet it was KSKB -> Killing Spree Killer Bee icon_razz.gif.

There's a thread someone posted similar to this one a while ago: http://forums.purepwnage.com/viewtopic.php...hlight=nickname

In there I said that if anyone correctly guessed how I came up with mine, I'd personally buy them an item from the noob store.

Edit: Pm me your ideas, don't wanna hijack this thread. icon_razz.gif

I originally called myself Easy Rider, but then more and more people started popping up with it so I changed.

I became Kannabis, but again more and more people were using it.

Then I decided on Wokesmeed because I had never seen it and a google search didn't even return results. So I've staked my claim as the original Wokesmeed and I'll stick to it. In the event I can't use the name in a game (like WoW) I change it to one of my previous. Right now my WoW characters go by the name Easyrider.

No, not from a Douglas Adams novel. I chose this name with a huge story behind it, but to make it short... it is because it describes my gaming skills.

haha, small penis is nice.

Nope it means "crazy one" although in original German the word "Verrückter" sounds a bit noobish

My nick:

Do you know the American show "King of Queens?"
There was a dialogue between Arthur Spooner and a guy on the telephone like this:

"...."
Ah, ok mr. Latio thanks for the talk.
"...."
What? Sure *blabla*
Let me ask you one last question: What is your first name buddy?
"...."
Ah, ok Phil, see you later!

It so Arthur was mocked by a guy who had a fake name "Phil Latio"
I thought a bit an then i got the counterpart to Phil Latio.
Easy right? icon_biggrin.gif

It all started about when I was 9 years old. I had just gotten back from the store with the first video game that I would be playing online! This very special game is C&C:Tiberian Sun. After playing RA1 and now moving on to this I was very excited. But alas, many problems arose. I was using 56k and this was very slow. Another problem was the fact that I needed a username to play online! This was very new to me, but I did use the internet before this (AOL...) so, I tried in my first name (clifford) but i shortened it to cliff. Nextly, I added lol to it. But the final problem arose as my fingers where too short to reach lol, and I typed kik. Cliffkik. And it stuck for 6(almost 7) years.

Zephyr just sounds/looks cool. Zephyr was a graff artist from NYC so I just took his name. [RA] was my old clan that broke up, I shoudn't of even put that when I originally signed up here but I guess I'm stuck with it but thats fine I can deal.
