- Where does your username come from 2017?
A meta-fictional character whose name is often mis-pronounced and talks toot.
Years back a bloke on the Corrado forum started a thread with a title making erroneous offers of free bacon. A suitably outraged mod changed his screen name to “I lie about free bacon”.Posted 2 years ago

Became my default online user name, as it always seemed to be free.
Did any usernames remain intact through the apocalypse of STW ? I can’t remember when I joined but my username has, boringly, always been my name and I’ve been here since I had a full head of hair 🙂Posted 2 years ago

Got mine with a bit of random Swype’ing.Posted 2 years ago
too mucha lot of time tinkering with bikes and other stuff in the garage.
The master of, I’ll just change my brake pads, back in ten minutes and three hours later I seem to have built / rebuilt an entire bike or decided to reorganise my tools alphabetically excluding those whose names are divisible by 3.
My old pre crash user name was about proximity to the local trail centre which I no longer live as near.Posted 2 years ago

I registered with STW in order to sell a Scott Pilot bar and stem combo.Posted 2 years ago
Seemed as good a name as any although, if I were to choose again, I’d drop the The.
I also think people might think I am a trolley dolly which I am not.
i used to like (and still do) punk. i also like other music too these days.Posted 2 years ago
Yo because I have a Yo Eddy and Kaiser is a forum name I’ve used for a while. It came from a guy from work because I have a German name. I’m think I was registered as Kaiser here too but didn’t use the forum too much and lost it after the Episode or whatever happened.Posted 2 years ago
Mine was also from a Counter Strike obsession. The “clan” name was The Suicidal 72 just because we were so shite when we started we would have lasted longer attempting to shoot ourselves than against any half way decent opponents and were all born in 72. There was, amazingly, another Miles already on the team so I added “the” to piss him off. Used it ever since.Posted 2 years ago
KM79 is the airport code for John H Hooks Jr Memorial Airport in Rayville, United States. I didn’t want to make it too obvious so I made mine a lowercase km79.Posted 2 years ago

“Oh my god, they killed Kenny!”
Was a bit of a fan in early Internets days, picked name for forums and that was that.
If I did it now I’d just be boring and base it on my name. Only it would be TJ on first initials, but then TJ Hooker reference potential.Posted 2 years ago

You had your heart broken by a farmer from Merthyr Tydfil, and you chose that username to remember that to feel as bad as you do, just meant that at one time you felt so good.Posted 2 years ago
I was ‘Screw352’ before the great hack, (prison ossifer & epaulette no.)
I seemed to remember Essel Gruntfuttock being in the Goon Show but I can’t find any evidence, so I must’ve made it up!
I might change my name to ‘exscrew166’Posted 2 years ago
ahsat = tasha
Normally I’m ahsatb, but I joined stw when just starting to go out with p20 (10 years ago now) and decided to make it slightly more complicated for him to work out who I was and dropped the b. Don’t think I’ll make a spy!Posted 2 years ago
