I chose mine as DMacC, because im not creative enough or have the patience of trying other names, all started back when i was making my first hotmail account, seemed like every name i chose some other guy/girl had already picked it. DMac was used too, so i tried DMacC, and what do you know it works. So, that's the nickname i use everywhere now, haven't had any problems for years.

I play ALOT of online video games. I was looking for a unique ID and, while playing one day after fragging (Socom II) a dude, someone said, "Sheesh, not again!". I thought it unique and it became my user ID.

And, no. It is NOT a drug reference smile.gif

Mine is not too creative. Like KHarmon, I too am a law enforcement officer (Deputy actually). When I first got a yahoo account, I tried "johnnylaw", but it was taken. So I made it johnnydlaw (johnny "the" law).

I'm also a video game nut, so I shortened the name to D-Law for my screen name and i've used it ever since.

I usually go with PooPHeaDFreD. I've been using that since '96 when I first got onto the internet. It progressed from poop to XPooPFaceX to finally, PooPHeaDFreD. I didn't use it on here because I use gglwebster when I want to be taken seriously, as with trading... (hopefully soon!) gglwebster is my name, Geoffrey George Luther Webster. No unique story behind that, it's just long.

mrmopar...A name I sort of stole from someone on Beckett about 7-8 years ago. I have used in anywhere I could as an ID online, from ebay to chat boards ever since.

I dealt with the "original" mrmopar on beckett. I have always been a fan of Chrysler Muscle cars of the 60s and liked the name. He told me it was his fathers ID, who happened to be an editor for a major Mopar magazine at the time. Anyway, shortly thereafter I joined ebay and used it for the first time as my ebay ID. I stopped using beckett for a while and forgot about him.

I wandered back to beckett after a long absence. Discovering ebay in the late 90s would do that to you!! I decided to change my original beckett name and mrmopar was now available (I guess the original left or was booted???). I took it there as well. Now, like I said, I use it wherever it's still available online.

NOTE: Obviously "mrmopar" will not always be me online...there are several places it was no longer available!!

My story's really stupid, but since you asked... wink.gif

When I first got on the net back in 1996 or so (in high school) I used to frequent wrestling chatrooms, and I would always sign in as ddt, after the wrestling move of the same name. One time somebody else was already signed in as that, so I signed in as dd2. Then another time when somebody already was signed in as THAT one as well, I changed the number to 316, part of the angle used in the feud between Stone Cold and Jake the Snake at the time (the whole "Austin 3:16" thing), so I ended up being dd316, and that's what I've used ever since.
