SupaStarAshIn all honesty, I have never realised that P was a P, I've always thought it to be a T :lookaround:

:chuckle: I don't think you're the only one. But that is as it's meant to be.


When in doubt, gas it!

Quite simply, it is the name I registered with on the FN site. I thought you had to keep the same name on the forums as you have on the site, so that's it. Before that it was the role playing name I used in Star Trek: Elite Force. I came to the EF FN site in search for maps.

No real reason for mine, I guess it's just because I'm quiet and silent, kind of like a Ghost. That, and it's my favorite unit from Starcraft. :D

Mine is from C&C Generals. In the game I was called "Pete the great" after Russian czar Peter The Great. When Zero hour came out I changed it to "[EX]Pethegreat" and the name stuck. I just removed the [EX] when i registered on FF/GF.

I did have a tm on the end of my name for a few months untill dontiz said "Well I need to remove the tm since I can't do anything to you with the tm on in admin CP"

In second grade I changed school and in my new classe there where two other guys with my name so my teacher came up with the idea of giving us nicknames. My surname was "Jurk" and so she made "Jurki" out of it and all my friends started calling me that way. Because the writing was difficult and it looked crappy I decided to change it to "Yoki" which is my in-game name as well. The "The" is just a little attachment to make it look better.

/me looks for ways to add a â„¢ into his username, so he can evade Herr Donutz' AdminCP hax. :p

My name? Well, I originally registered as radiant_rookie, since I am an EF mapper, and my mapping tool of choice is GTKRadiant. At the time I thought "rookie" was appropriate, since I wasn't very good at it.

A few months later, I changed it to Rookie_42, simply because I liked "Rookie" better than "Radiant", and added the 42 as a reference to Douglas Adam's Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Best book ever.

Okay... Draco would be my real name - not the one in the RL, but the one that really suits my nature (that would be in Latin, yeah). And the 2k is simply to avoid interference with others - 'draco' seems to be a -really- popular nickname on the net... On the other side, it's the "v2.0", reminding of what you'd see on the net or in RL would be just a ghostly contour of one's true spirit. Oh, and 'Draco_2k' is also the historical name of the guy you'd see on my avatar - my best 3ds character created so far.

PS: This thread is ought to make it into the history of GF. Nice.
