USERNAMES. How or why did you choose yours?

Post by Jules on Wed Aug 31, 2016 4:55 pm

Me, I chose 'JULES' quite randomly.

On the home page the last word on the menu bar is Rules

('About Us And Rules' is what you see on the far right of the page, as a non member) - made me think of the rhyming word Jules. Yep it was as random as that!


How about you?

(No need to mention what you are/were called in other forums. I'm only interested in your choice of name on this site.)

Hmmm..."About Us And Jules".  scratch  It could work.  I like it...adds the personal touch.

I chose Quill because of a certain Ozzie that had that name.  But then Phil stole my name and opened up a bunch of accounts on different forums--including here--using my picture as an avvie.  When I came here he had already been, and gotten banned.  It was Dean who told me over on AVO, and that helped get it straightened out.  I've never visited his forum, but Dean's a nice guy for that.

But, anyway, all these boards and I couldn't get my name back.  And, I kept hearing from others about how I was such an arsehole on boards I'd never been on.  So I did the next most logical thing.  I made it "Original Quill" so people would get the message I was different, but the first and Original Quill.

Nah, after three years people--although they actually call me Quill--still would wonder if my Avvie didn't say "Original Quill". But thx.

Say, I've been meaning to ask ...WTH happened to your nice avatar image; you dropped it a couple weeks/month back and I've missed it!  Will you put it back or replace it soon?

Mine was a reference to someone being caught out in 'room 101'... a place that DOES NOT exist...!!!

It is rhyming slang... yes... and it's also a reference to a place that DOES NOT exist... and reference to a person who does exist... but pretended they were someone else who doesnt exist, when they visited the imaginary place of illusion known as 'room 101' which DOES NOT exist...


If you would like to know more... please write to... 'Room 101, Hall of smoke and mirrors, imagination Street, Sassquatch mountain, Monk Town'... it's just past 'ohshithaveibeencaughtlyingagain county'...!!!

The Tommy Monk was all over the place in room 101 allegedly...


You'd have to ask the person who made the claims of course...

Yeah, let's leave what happened in the past and at another site where it belongs.

My user name came from my Spider-Man fanboy phase ... didn't want to go with Spider-Man or Peter Parker, so I went with Ben Reilly, the Peter Parker clone who became the lesser-known hero Scarlet Spider:

No probs, eddie.  Smile
The last thing I wanted was for anyone who did not feel comfy about explaining their user name, to feel pressed into doing so.


Anyway it was the two-word names that really piqued my curiosity.
I found names like Original Quill, Veya -V, Horatio Tarr, Tommy Monks ... very intriguing cos I could not place them (in literature, movies, politics, ) and they've all been explained now.

I love Dahlias so I tried most Like red etc and all those usernames were already taken so I tried blackdahlia and got on so i've
always stuck with the BD or blackie variations ever since and then on whatever forum so far most know me and know I like a laugh
so we get into the banter kind of thing within minutes lol.

Yes, I saw someone explaining your name on here a few weeks ago, so I already knew it comes from ''Blackdahlia'' - a flower. I had also seen the explanation of 4EVER'S name too. Lord Foul's name was the only one I found easy to place, I knew it came from literature.

Thanks to all, very imaginative monikers. fiesta

(ETA lol Quill - 'jules & jegulations'.    )

A few years ago I came across an online news forum, I didn't even know such a thing existed! 

Strangely there were lots of unhappy, grumpy people arguing about this and that.  I'd never seen such a place, so much anger

I decided to join, these people needed to feel the love in the room so I set about trying to make people smile.  

Hence my user name feelthelove

Anyway, you can see what a successful mission it was.  Just take a look around, lots of happy people debating their point of view politely whilst respecting each others opinions. People embracing each others differences, cultures, sexuality etc.  

No, no please don't thank me, it's thanks enough to have been able to make difference

There is nothing wrong with having a little flirtatious fun with multiple Irish guys with sexy accents who are half your age.  Nothing wrong at all.........I like Scubasteve I think he was a team leader, going places.

Generally I tend to attract the older gentlemen, irl and online ask Nems

I think there should be more harmless flirting on here, it's fun and it makes people smile and giggle

Much better than all that hate and misery.

Wasn't there a 'Joy Division' (JD) on Sky and ADO, too?

Yes. He was very, very different back then.

Hi Quill x

Hi gorgeous. I've missed you round here daily.

Yes, JD was briefly a really nice sort on ADO and SF...but then he turned sour. I don't think it was all him, he just had to answer to too many criticisms from too many fronts. He finally just walked away.

My user name is my own name....just add the VIA, though most people shorten it to Syl in real life anyway.

Lol....just checking. Laughing

When I first joined a forum I didn't know that most people used made up names.....I have kept my own name on every forum bar one, the American one.
On there I was Zelda, cos that's how my little grandson used to pronounce Sylvia...and I liked it. Laughing .

Im trying to think of all the original members, who are still around today, there was:

FTL
Miffs
Harvesmom
Eddie
Allakaka
Dean
Scrat
Didge
Irn Bru
Sassy
Smelly bandit ?
Sphinx
Eilzel
Phil catman
Vod and HF

Can't think of anymore.

You've forgotten me - Lord Edmund Moletrousers! I shall now go into my misery corner and weep copious tears of utter frustration.

I became plain Fred Moletrousers here because my original perception of this place was that aristocrats were neither appreciated nor welcome. Shades of the French Revolution!

I originally chose Lord Edmund Moletrousers because he was a character in a pantomime "wot I wrote" (to quote Ernie Wise)... a curmudgeonly old bugger who hated children and locked them up in his dungeon.

I changed the character and the name as part of a script revision before the work was eventually published.
