Where does your nick come from?

Post by RoboCop » Sun Sep 19, 2010 1:15 pm

Indulge me, where does your nickname come from and why? You wanna know mine?

I used my nick from a Orion pictures film in 1987 (C) RoboCop who is a dead policeman who got "half-revived" and became a cyborg and almost indestructable! He has a digital recorder, a middle finger like a USB pen and thermovision or rather "sex-ray" specs to see through girls clothes.

Note that this is kinda SgtDome's reference.

I've been a Star Trek fan for many years, and when I started playing online games, I started using the name "Data", after the android from Star Trek: Next generation.
When I watched a comedy series, called "3rd Rock From The Sun", about some alines disguised as humans, there was this leader, who called him self the High Commander.
I used that part and so from then on my nick was and still is HighCmdr.Data. The '[:]' tag from my clan, is a smiley, meaning the user is a cyborg. I liked that and so I called my clan [:]Cyborg-Clan. And the (NL) is ofc from my country, The Netherlands: [:]HighCmdr.Data(NL) "We are [:], resistance is futile!" (at least it's painful :P)
Are you a pirate?

My in-game nickname (heh I Rhymed) is simply my name backward minus a letter
Douglas
Salguod
Salgod

I think I may have been reading the Deltora quest series at the time and one of the puzzles it featured was the name of something backwards, so at some stage I tried it out on my own name and went hey if I get rid of that u it looks kinda cool.

My head kinna has a shape of a Light Bulb, or a Alien Head! :mrgreen:
So, people started calling me DOME, ive had the nickname for 15ish years.
Once i started playing Day of Defeat back in the Old School YIS days, I called myself [YIS]PvtDome... after i got promoted to the 1st Squad, I changed my name to [YIS]SgtDome|1st|, I kept that for the longest time. THEN, after becoming APG Administrator, I changed to [APG]General_Dome[CL], and after that, i just went back to SgtDome.

My old nick Petenium came from my name and a boring chemistry class. My new nick name Colttu comes from my Airsoft hobby and my current nickname there.
