QUOTE(dd316 @ Nov 18 2005, 10:21 AM)
...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.

Cool story! cool.gif

The beauty of this thread is that nobody else can likely guess the reason behind most of the member names. dd316 seems simple, but there's a nice story behind it.

Thanks for sharing it. wink.gif

I guess that's true. I always thought my story was stupid basically because I didn't really put much thought into it, I just kind of adapted it by default, but I suppose it was a nice evolution.

Another couple of good stories.  Anyone else?

Hi,My name is coinman - really self explaing - don't ya think? yuk yuk,I am Steve from Surrey,BC,Canada.
I am always on the hunt for sport & non sport coins, I tried a few different names before but they were always taken. One day I went to a sports show and the sellers were all asking what can I help you with? or what kind of cards are you looking for? I replied no cards only coins.

After a few more shows they recognized me & would say no coins man only cards.So I thought I would use the name coinman to descibe what I collect.
Best of all it wasn't taken LOL.
Thanks for reading ,But as I have found out you will find the other name explanations more interesting.

Well I love Lonesome Dove, mostly the series. My favorite character is Newt Call. I like him best in Season 2 The Outlaw Years. Also I love the old west 1880 era. Also known as The Outlaw Years. But mostly it was chosen for the series

Also since you can see my ebay name that's for former Viking Cris Carter. cris80 was taken so i had to put 3 S's in it.
