@JamboHyland95 Sorry, I'm assuming too much. OP in this instance is Original Post, the first post of this thread.
It can also mean Original Poster (or overpowered) in other contexts.

ThyBlight - I used to work for a Gardening section of a big store and always thought the plant disease "Blight" was cool sounding. Flash forward 6 years and I got really emo after my girlfriend cheated on me and so – on the forum I used to frequent (killermovies.com/forums) – I changed my name from Rick Genis to Blight, because I thought I was diseased from the inside out. The name just stuck for later sites.
Now lots of people use the name (probably because of Batman Beyond) so I decided to add "thy" instead of "the" in front of it.
I should change it to Detective Triangle....

I was playing a lot of Mega Man X4 when I was beginning to get on the internet, and settled on sigmalives because of it. I'm not really even a big Mega Man fan in general, it was just a moment in my timeline that has stuck out of convenience for nearly 20 years.

Longview last edited by
Longview - Back in 98 I went round a friends house and entered my first chatroom, when it asked me for a username I picked Longview because I was a fan of Green Day at the time and its stuck ever since, used it on pretty much every format but usually I go by the name Longview01 because the name Longview is already taken

I was like... 9yo when I came up with mine. I wanted something that includes my first name (Kevin) and sounds techy.
one day I saw the word Keyboard written on a piece of paper while the little tail of the y was covered by a pencil... and that's the moment my username was born :)
Keyboard minus the tail of the y = Kevboard

I have an ever growing argument with my friends about how great pineapples are and that they make all other foods better by adding them. But pineapples is a long word and so I can't use it for usernames very often, so I adopted the pokemon version of pineapples. On top of that I always though knights were cool (and the best faction to choose in For Honor) so I tacked that onto the end.

Final Fantasy XII was the last game I was playing before I got a PS3 so I went with an item from the game when trying to think up a PSN ID. Got used to it and didn't mind using it elsewhere.

Sorry for the delay!
@ThyBlight Added...kind of. That is quite the origin story. Phew.
That took a while. Note to self: Don't put that off for so long next time.
Kif last edited by
It's a character from Futurama. My real name sounds vaguely similar, and because I was/am a massive Futurama fan, when I was at uni people just started to call me Kif. Variations from friends and partners have been Kifster and Kiffy.

Count_Zero last edited by
Back in High School I read "Neuromancer" by William Gibson, I thought it was really cool that one of the book's protagonists shares a name with me (I won't say who). I went on to read the next book, "Count Zero", which introduced me to the concept of an internet handle, leading to me taking the Count_Zero handle (and CountZeroOr on boards where Count_Zero or CountZero is taken).
