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.

Claus is a name I have always enjoyed and Grimhildyr is my D&D name for the past 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).

@Count_Zero is your real name "Lady 3Jane Marie-France Tessier-Ashpool" cause if so, that would be pretty sweet
Crepe last edited by
Aside from crepes being delicious, and one of my favorite breakfast foods, I like to keep all my handles as short and sweet as possible.
E_Zed_Eh_Intern last edited by
I sent an email to EZA when they first started saying I liked what they were doing and would be happy to help if they needed it. Understandably, they didn't reply. So as an in-joke with myself type jab at myself, I called my self EZA intern. Side note, I'm not as lonely as that makes me sound.
