PostSubject: Behind your Screen Name   Sun Aug 03, 2008 11:46 pm

While some of us may know the reason, and some of us won't...this is the place to put it on the record! Here's my explanation...

Forsaken Lament 04

What does this mean? Well, it isn't that complicated really...the word Forsaken (to give something up) and the word Lament (sadness/regret) work to symbolize the need for people to give up regret and their iner sadness. Does it sound emo? slightly. BUT i think it has some meaning that all of us can apply to our lives...strangely enough, I thought it up at random when i was signing up for IGN way back before i even met any of you...and now it's my trademark! oh, and the '04' is my lucky number...4 is the number of the month(April) i met my girlfriend after all...

How about you guys?

I already explained mine in the old site but for the ones that don't know
I was making a mii who was supposed to look like wario but ended up looking more like saddam hussein so it became waaar (the waaar to be exact but I took off the "the" part)!!!


PS: Nice sig btw cory!!!

your names are all WAY too simple! C'mon, put some thought into it people! I remember your old names...

Jody-Hzman (what did that mean?)

Mustafa-Smashthem81(I'm assuming you were born in 81)

And my name isn't THAT emo!

hzman has a story for it. one of my favorite book is holes and if you have read it one of the characters in the book was Hector Zeroni and i liked the name because it was weird so i just made hzman as a code because at first i did not trust alot of you guys. but after the first site i trusted everyone more then put my real name.

@Cory - Interesting topic.

Hmm, I choose SmashedBrother for several reasons. First off, I like to joke around a bit in a way that might make me sound just a little too high on my horse(The moon and hell come to mind, lol) so I choose the name to keep me from sounding too arrogant (I'm not really. I expect to be laughing at all the mistakes I'm going to make when Cory and I have our showdown as much as he probably will, lol..,never the less, You're going to be the man in the moon, Forsaken!!! Twisted Evil)

Second, it's unique - who calls themselves Smashed? lol.

Third and last, at the time I registered, clones were thought to be out, and since my main is Y.Link (still is, since I don't have Brawl yet Sad Mad ) and he's the only character I did well with (A one hour time limit on Wednesdays and Saturdays doesn't exactly give you much time to have several mains. My next best characters are Link and Marth and you could wipe me out with Pichu if I played either of them, lol) I thought I was going to used to wipe the floor with for a while (of course, since T.Link is even better, you guys had better watch out Twisted Evil I'm working on my Marth as well.)

A couple of other names I was considering were -

MacedonianKing
SeemoreDoless ( See more, do less. It sounds like a name, and it's as lazy as I am, lol!)

@Pug-A-Lug--I like your names...it just suits you better! I mean, Yoshimaster is pretty good, but the name 'pugs' just describes you so well. Even knowing your real name, I still call you by your screen name...it just seems to fit you so much better!

@Smashed- Glad you like the theme....your name seems to fit well into the brawl theme...and no, it doesn't sound arrogant...lol I think you chose very well, although Macedonianking does sound pretty cool. I guess when you think about it, we all get used to people's screen names...and it's just so weird when people change them. Just think of me suddenly changing my name to something like...i don't know...smashmaster or something...it just doesn't fit right? i think most people call me Forsaken, and those who know me well simply call me Cory...these names just fit i guess.

True. There are times when I almost forget my real name and start thinking my name is Smashed, lol.

btw. SmashMaster was another name I considered, although not as seriously as the others.

Oh, and I love the sig!

lol you're right man! Sometimes i think my name is Forsaken too! I guess to some people, it really is. I know that when i register for chats, or even when i registered for this new site, I was very picky about how my name came up...if it was spelled incorrectly or was missing the '04' i would freak out...sadly, the '04' is missing on the chat for some odd reason...oh well.

Oh and thanks for the compliment...you should have skye make you a sig as well...

Amen to that, lol. When you first started calling me "Smashed" I almost corrected you before it occured to me that there was something remarkably...stupid about that Lol lol!

I also forgot to mention the Master Swordsman and SmartAlec(either one). It took me nearly a week to decide on SmashedBrother

Before I even get into it, I wanna know if anyone wants the long story of how my name came into existence. It's long, so I don't wanna bore people to deathr OR we could just stick to the "Ralph Waldo Emerson inspired me" explanation which is way simpler lol. Your choice...

funny how these names have so much of an impact. I've noticed Skye hasn't disclosed her information yet!

@Smashed-I started Calling you smashed because I don't know your real name, and I'm not one to type out an entire name, (i don't expect you to type out 'Forsaken Lament 04' each time. However, I'm not sure if you want to divulge your real name, so i won't press you for it. I'll just contiue calling you 'Smashed'.

@Waaar-you're one to talk about work Mustafa!!!!! Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

@Carlos-Tell us the ENTIRE story...your name may be the only one that has as much meaning as my own!
