Ok, way back when, when the Xbox 360 and consoles were more relevant (aka me being a console pheasant), and you know how for Xbox Live you had to make a name? And if you typed in some stuff it suggested certain names? Well I was a young lad and so I decided to make it my name, Timmy, but it was taken (obviously) so the Xbox suggested "ProvidedTimmy" so I took it, and well I've used it for everything, email, gamertags, nicknames, forum names, etc. I remember sometime though were I changed it several times over a course of a year I think, but it eventually came back to ProvidedTimmy. My previous ones that I've used for a while are: ChRomE Fearless and ElitePlayer (Original Steam Name).

So one day I decided to go on a jailbreak server and I liked it so much I changed my name to ': D' (I was like maybe 12 at the time don't judge me -confused-), then I changed my name to something to the likes of 'Smileyface' and shortly after I changed it to 'Mr. Smileyface'. A while later I changed it to 'Mr. Dee' (Because it's less long than what I had before) and when the new taunts came I out and I fell in love with the Rancho Relaxo I changed my name to 'Mr. Usefuless Dee' (A bit of wordplay :p), later I changed it back to 'Mr. Dee' and eventually I decided I was going to stick with 'Dee'. (As I wanted to remove all unnecessary details from my name)

: D -> Smileyface -> Mr. Smileyface -> Mr. Dee -> Mr. Usefuless Dee -> Mr. Dee -> Dee

(btw ': D' actually doesn't have a space between the colon and the D, I just didn't want a smiley to pop up as it could be confusing)

Seems like a dead thread, so I'll revive it for the hell of it.

My name? Easy. I like the cosmetic, and I play like a f2p even though I clocked in over 1.3k hours.

Interesting thread so imma necro. So basically after the dreaded “SushiCat” arc I wanted a clean slate in blackwonder. I was gonna go for an edgy name like “taxes and death” from a Paladins thing but then remembered that one Yoshi committed tax fraud meme. So I changed it to that and found a poorly drawn yoshi and yE.

(wtf necro???)

I used to go by "PhilipDadaug" a while back. Why though?

Well I made it up when making my Minecraft account. I was thinking of a cool username that was unique. My stupid ass thought "Dawg" was a funny joke still and I incorporated it into my name. I even interpreted that "Dawg" as an actual dog... so I downloaded a FURRY OC MINECRAFT SKIN without realizing what it actually represented. When transitioning to Steam, my username was still "PhilipDadaug" and I kept it there until the last few years where it changed into variants of "Philip the/der _______" It then simplified into Philip coz y not.

I went by various names, my first foundational name being M.Bison for the reason that I loved street fighter, tf2 had a well known item aswell called the "team-captain" that wouldn't have existed if M.bison hadn't worn his iconic hat. My first unusual was the "team-captain". He also was the hardest boss I've faced in a video game within a very long time. (the street fighter alpha 2 version)

My second foundational name became "Warrak" a few years ago when I me and a buddy were thinking that we should both freshen our names a bit with something less common. I hate telling the origins of this name as it's so cringey for some reason, I got it from the name of a level someone developed that I loved the design of, and that's all I'll say about it. only very few will get my name as a reference from a mobile game back in the day, it also can be played on PC but it was known for being a mobile game.

My other name "Kizaru" is a funny story. I was walking down the hallway in my highschool a couple years ago and a weeb suddenly said that I looked like a guy from "One Piece, named Kizaru" and after a while I just ignored the comment, I kept it in the back of my mind for quite a while until I decided to search up the name "Kizaru" and to my avail I did kinda look like the real life version of him.

My username is a combination between my middle name Rae but for my entire life I always spelled it Ray, when I was 16 I finally found out how it was spelled after my parents found my birth certificate in their storage unit. The other part of my name comes from my favorite yugioh archetype the cyber dragons so my username used to be "cyber ray" but I thought cyveray looked cooler. On a side note I am glad that I picked a username that some people don't know how to pronounce because some came up with funny nicknames for me such as "celery" or "savory".

p.s cyveray is pronounced "sigh ver ay"

I watched this series a few years ago, the spy's name is Doctor BLU so yeah... I actually went by that name for a bit. Then one day an old friend offered to make me an SFM poster with my sniper in it. Apparently he forgot to change the sniper's team to BLU. So I just went "fuck it why not" and changed it to Doctor RED. Here I am now.

So uhh, my first username were stuff like "AndreyCrafting", because i liked Minecraft and my real name is Andrey.
Then i started playing Super Mario Sunshine and i said "Gosh, Shadow Mario's design is pretty cool"... and that's it.

So my old username was the_chaos_effect, just something I threw together with no real meaning behind it. I was playing VSH on an older server one day when one of the admins renamed me to "10000 cold nights of death". He switched it back once the round was over, but I ended up liking the name at the time, so I kept it for a couple years. About a year ago I streamlined it into what it is today, partly because it was a little too edgy and partly because that server died and it was a cruel reminder :/

Magatsu is a shortened version of the word magatsuhinokami (written 禍津日神) which means "evil gods", my other name Tsuki means "moon" and Lemon is pretty self explanatory, no real reason why I chose these names, they're just random words.

Was named vicyy before because I thought it looked cool and not 2 edgy, but realized it wasn't only a boys name and changed it to Vick. And I did not choose Victor because it sounded to long and 2 serious for my taste.

My actual name is Panduro, I got my name from a japanese christmas song. I named myself Panduro Panduro and held that name for awhile until i just shortened it to Pan Pan since its getting weird for me. (but some people still call me Panduro).

I find it ironic how my actual real life name is Victor and not alot of people are able to take me "seriously" so to speak.
