    Every single name I wanted was already taken. So I chose the most wrong-sounding one, and thankfully, no one had taken it. :D 

    And as you can see, my avatar's the movie Bonecrusher in G1 colors. Green, black, purple, with blue eyes.

    I started out back around 1999-2001(sometime during then I graduated in 01 and I'd been on the boards for at least a year) as Big-O[ it was just starting around then] the board got reset an I lost my post count (and name) So I started over as one of my favorite non-Tf characters. I thought it fit the robot theme, and I didn't want to go through the list of pre taken Tf names. I also figured it would pp out in a board full of Transformer names.

    I hate to burst your bubble, but that's the Cannuks logo on your avatar, and it's a whale, not a shark.



    Unless of course you mean the San Jose Sharks.

    My name with the obvious TF 'tron' termination. Makoto+tron
    Then I decided to replace 'ko' with 'crap' after problems with fellow TFWers thanks to my depressive persona, in 2001 or so. Only now I've decided to get some psychiatric help, if I ever manage to heal myself I'll remove the 'crap' from my screen name.

    Mine came from my favorite G1 character obviously. The ADK is an abbreviation for Adirondacks, the awesome mountain range in upstate NY.

    Well, I used to be called Blurrwave back in the old days when I first joined up, because I liked Armada Blurr and Armada Tidal Wave. Blurr, wave. Made sense. But over time, I realized it's best to just go under a name that's easy for everyone to understand, so, got a name change some time ago, and now I go by my first name: Eric.

    Blurrwave is dead. Eric killed him. :p

    My name hails from a time when I played far, far too much Megaman X4 for my own good. Plus, y'know, my middle name.

    Fun Fact: I used to use underscores instead of spaces, but after a while, Tony removed them because whenever I posted, I broke all the board tables. XD

    It is a mystery.

    I came up with it for various reasons (which I won't go into) when I was 17, and needed to setup my first private e-mail address (on hotmail, before the MS buyout). It was the first name out of the ones I wanted that wouldn't have required a number at the end, so I took it. Nowadays, I just keep using it, because it's rarely taken by anyone else, and it's easier than coming up with a new user name for every website & messenger I make an account on. It sounded a lot cooler back then, especially before I knew about furries. Glad to see I'm not the only one here who laments having a furry-sounding name.

    I guess I might as well fess up that I used to be Gorg Bodolza on here years ago. I left for personal reasons not directly related to the board or anyone on it. When I came back, I was trying for a fresh start in most areas of my life, and decided to do the same here, without worrying about anyone asking where I'd been, or what happened with my previous situation. The name was a misspelling of "Golg Boddol Zer" from a fansub of Macross: Do You Remember Love. I first used it in the official Robotech forums, where I used to go to argue a lot. I wanted a specifically Macross name, not Robotech, and all the good characters (and spellings) were pretty much taken.

    --------------------------

    KA - And here I thought it stood for "Krazy Artist"

    toma - Huh. Ever since I used to hang out in the ROM hacking forum on IRC, I just assumed it was based on the character from Chrono Trigger.

    it's my second last name, and it has been a nickname for me since forever because despite being an italian surname it sounds exactly like "see tit" in spanish (see = ve, tit = teta) and people love saying tit in public, specially if they have an actual excuse to do it.

    Always liked how Zarak sounded and Zone also sounded cool.
    Months later I learned Black Zarak was a reincarnated demon general/pirate/cape-wearer in Zone.
    Aye, Matey.

    Devmode is my Dj stage name. Put out a limited press EP titled Devmodious in the late 90's. Liked Ultra Magnus. So I combined the EP title and Put an Ultra in front of it. I was going to go devmodiousprime but I didn't like how it looked. In my avtard that's my logo next to the decepticon logo.

    Orphaned as a mere babe in swaddling clothes by my birth parents, I was found in the polearm section of the Imperial War Museum. Not carrying any form of identification whatsoever, the curator who found me named me after the two items my bassinet was wedged between.
