I wanted to get one of those usernames that if the site takes off, in a few years everyone will be like "Damn, how was he able to claim that name?!"

[–]Jesus-Christ 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Same lol. I remember occasionally seeing usernames such as 'Bob' on Reddit and always thought they were lucky to grab em' before anyone else did.

magnora I made up with random syllables and I thought it sounded cool, and the 7 is because I've been banned from reddit 6 other times...

[–][deleted] 7 insightful - 5 fun7 insightful - 4 fun8 insightful - 5 fun -  (2 children)

haha I was doing that with a different name on reddit, added a number to each new one, they then banned all possible future names going up to 100 of it and I'm also the reason conspiracy makes new users wait 2 months to post now

That makes me sad a little.

I thought you were clever first. Turns out it was by default second.

I don't think I ever told you that I think you have the best name on here.

[–]useless_aether 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (1 child)

Oh it's so dumb.

I was a teenager on a small Star Ocean forum. I was making some philosophical point against censorship. That we can always make new words or something.

So I just slapped a few sounds together to make something and realized I liked it.

It's really a stupid and unintersting story ahah.

When I was a kid (10y-11y) I made one of the worst minecraft video ever, it was to introduce a map I've found. I was playing on a crap laptop where I played minecraft at 7 fps and I had like half of my keyboard key who wasnt working and in this video I had writed "Den Lille" on a sign and when I rewatched this video recenlty I foud it really funny because it litteraly doesnt mean anything in my native language.

So I just took it because my username was lame and I found it funny, that's it.

I have an insanely strong sense of smell, it's irritating really. If you went out drinking I can probably name most of what you drank a few hours later. Suppose my alt should be "my_eyesare-shit," I meant to register a something different here and just never did it.

[–]menacetosobriety 7 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 2 fun8 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

my old reddit u/n was a referance to how I am the last living of all my friends. all but one of them died of an overdose. since I'm still not over it, and am still thinking about suicide by od every day. I found this u/n to be more fitting to my current situation

This one? This is a new name for an old man. Been kinda stewing in a funk for the past week, sickened by old haunts and hiveminds, and when I started looking for new pastures, I decided I needed a new identity. Thought about what form that persona might take, and the only image that came to mind was a fountain of blackest ichor.
So Vanta (a word which I later learned means "boastful") like vantablack, and Fount.
Not very poetic, but it'll do for now.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 3 fun2 insightful - 2 fun3 insightful - 3 fun -  (0 children)

[–]Laser_Magnum 6 insightful - 4 fun6 insightful - 3 fun7 insightful - 4 fun -  (1 child)

sigh It's really stupid, but it's based on this mod for Fallout: New Vegas.

Laugh all you want, and laugh even if you didn't find this funny, because the thought of you feeling positive makes me happy.

I wanted something that's very unique, to the point that passerby's would just forget about me, but those who are actually interested in me wouldn't have a hard time remembering my username.

Kinda egocentric, but I only wanna be remembered by those who care.

[–]Yhvr 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I was tired of the Minecraft username "PaNdOrAplayer595", so I entered 4 random characters on my keyboard. 3 years later, I still use that name.

EDIT: If you wonder how I came up with "PaNdOrAplayer595", Here you go. PaNdOrA - I used to listen to music on pandora. Mixed capitalization because it was C O O L. player - I don't know. 595 - I was 5 when I made it, no clue why the 9 was there.

[–]happysmash27 6 insightful - 2 fun6 insightful - 1 fun7 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

"happy" because I liked happiness, "smash" for my old school, S.M.A.S.H. (Santa Monica Alternative School House), and 27 as a random number for the number I needed at the end of my username for Club Penguin. My username is very old…

[–]antikarma98 5 insightful - 4 fun5 insightful - 3 fun6 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

I'm antikarma, because I thought (and still think) Reddit's karma system is ass-backward and encourages rotten content. And I'm antikarma98 because, apparently, other people agreed and had already taken the name.

Years upon years ago, was at a friend's place smoking weed (first time for me, not for them) when her dad knocked on the door, told her the package she wanted had come. It was a Beatmania game and attachment for the PS1, and we thought it was so cool...

Loaded it up and checked through the tracks. Since I'd played piano from an early age, I got first crack. It was this song, and it opened up my love for peripheral games like guitar hero, DJ hero, Rock Band and such. The name stuck as me Gamertag for years, and I still crack it out on occasion, such as now.

Twelve years ago I saw a meme on a now-dead forum, it was a ship with "Titan Uranus" emblazoned on the side.

Ever since then, I have used this username or a variant on all forums that I have frequented.

I think it's a fairly good pun.

[–]JasonCarswell 3 insightful - 4 fun3 insightful - 3 fun4 insightful - 4 fun -  (0 children)

Great porn variants: TitsAndYourAnus or Titan Uranus N. Vulva

Is it punny because Titan is a moon of Saturn?

[–]Icearstorm 4 insightful - 2 fun4 insightful - 1 fun5 insightful - 2 fun -  (0 children)

I have this username on most pseudonymous sites I use, and it started on DeviantArt of all places. I thought the combination of elements of ice, fire, and storm were cool, but Icefirestorm was taken so I put "Ice," "sear" (like charring/fire), and "storm" together and, well, here I am.

Lack of imagination on my part and my parents. But more because I have too much imagination and if I start taking on aliases and personas I'll never be able to keep track of them all across all platforms everywhere. Laziness or pragmatism - you decide.

I appreciate anonymity and security and those who use it, I also think it's important, for some at least, to be brave and bold and not hide from the corrupt corporatocracy and all their evil agents. I find asstrolls who hide behind the safety of their anonymizing aliases despicable cowards.

Also, I have no relations that I care for more than my right to speak freely and if "they" come after me through them that's on "them", and it's not like I'm saying much important other than simply resisting all "authority", corruption, dogma, theft, and violence everywhere.

What is CrackWatch?

What is a SaidIt Enhancement Suite?

[–]PaigeAP 3 insightful - 1 fun3 insightful - 0 fun4 insightful - 1 fun -  (1 child)

CrackWatch is a sub about keeping up with the status of video/games(whether there has been a cracked version) and notifying people when it is released(no links).

SaidIt Enhancement Suite would be the SaidIt version of the Reddit Enhancement Suite which ads customizable functions like:

tagging user(writing something besides their username to remind you where you interacted with them

customizing colors of the usernames

and many more functions.

There is actually RES for SaidIt -https://saidit.net/s/SaidIt/comments/je/res_for_saidit_supports_chrome_opera_firefox_and/

but it works horrible and using it screwed with my settings for Reddit.

[–]JasonCarswell 2 insightful - 1 fun2 insightful - 0 fun3 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

I don't do games. That makes a lot more sense now.

I was thinking of people surveilling junkies in alleys.

I installed RES but haven't bothered reading the instructions. I don't do Reddit so no worries here.

d3rr was going to just add the RES code into the SaidIt code. I don't know if that's still a thing.
