    Did a search, couldn't find a topic like this so I guess I'll just ask.

    What does your user name mean and why did you choose it? Srly, I'm curious

    Grimlock was my fav TF as a kid, 13 is my "lucky" number. Did it on impulse, not exactly satisfied with it these days but oh well.

    <------------ Huuuuuge fan of Unicron. 'nuff said.

    IACON, why don't you elaborate? Why'd you pick the capital of Cybertron as your username?

    And DaraRex2.0, you'd better explain your name too!!!

    I wanted a "Prime" name, and at the time me and some other friends in college were known as a group called the High Counsil, which was sort of an animation club. The head of the club was me and one of my friends, which people jokingly called us "My Liege" a couple times, so we started going by Liege, collectively. It also had a tie in with Liege Maximo, so I thought Liege Prime sounded good.

    my name is more of a parody just to poke fun at the corniess TF can be, mainly the g1 cartoon. You know you can make anything with tron or bot at the end. Monkeybot, Fridgatron you get it. And a parody one of my fav. chars which is Soundatron. Plus, this was the name of my char. when I first played a paper & pen RPG

    I'm a bit embarrassed to say that my name is that of a female Decepticon :redface2:  It was a name I just slapped down while typing and came up with the phrase "The Dareing King" later. If I'd known this site would let me register I would have chosen "Tron-Mega" because he's just a badass smasher.

    Is there a way I can change my name?

    Originated with the Quake clan I played with for years. And it's got great innuendo.

    That and twisted_pickle takes too long to type.

    1. The deflection of radiation or particles by electromagnetic or nuclear forces through angles greater than 90° to the initial direction of travel.
    2. The radiation or particles so deflected.

    The character Backscatter is a specialist in shielding, hence the name.

    When I first signed up for this site I attempted to use the name 'Ziero', which is a rl nickname I use and something I use on numerous different forums, IM programs and games etc. But because I signed up at work, their internet filters blocked something so the registration didn't seem to make it through. Once I got home I tried again thinkin the attempt failed and just shortend the name.

    ...about two days later I finally get the confirmation email my original name went through, but it was too late by then. =(
