Stupid question about my nick. Just the most stupid thing you can ever do, like i remember zillions of finmans/finguys/finsmthng (translated from finnish), that i have seen after getting this nick.. Well, im have done the same. And thats how was the most stupid nick in the scene done.
:beer:

Another nick, Zzzwh, its just so random that i love it. Also played level called Zzzzzzwh.lev in my beginning elma times, thats where.

Third, Ruotiukko, quite random for foreigner, came from some book called "koiramäki" (the dog hill :D ). Thats some kind of book that tells about old times, but people are just made to be dogs. There was some random thing, or actually guy, that was called ruotiukko. Ruotiukko is some kind of old man that just stays at the house and so on, cant remember that all. :blushes: Wander if it has any english word for it. But, actually, I have seen only one player from internets that knew what means Ruotiukko, so, dont worry. And he knew it from the same book. ;)

One more thing making your nick even more sucky is that its abbreviation (FM) is equal to the famous team and therefore causes some confusion sometimes. =P

My nick history ( I will probably change nick because this is my bros nick before I had it):

My name is Ludvig Thorslund and my bros friends started to call him Thorse, than my brother that is 2 years younger than him they started calling Thorze, and I thought it was uber cool so I asked my friends to call me that instead of like " Ludde, Kudde, Ludvig, Lud" or whatever and they said sure.
And they started to call me that a bit.
So that's why.

Zweq: Smashed keyboard with left hand fingers when joining irc/#across for the first time, and the result was weq. Added Z from Zamppe, which I have used in every other game before elma and every game after elma, so why the hell did I ever choose Zweq, I don't know. Thought many times changing nick to Zamppe for elma too, but I think after all it's dumb and wouldn't work at all.

My Opinion: I think Zweq is like coolest nick ever :D

For the true dinosaurs of elma who remember me from back in the days (2008 :P), I'll explain ShadowMissrouti.


When I was young, my brother and sister called me very random names; "Crevaison" (Flat, for a tire), "Ustensile" (utensil), "Barbie sans tête" (headless Barbie) or even "Babouin sans cul" (Assless baboon). My brother even started to call me "Miss ...". Miss Claque was the first (claque is slap), Miss Routi, Miss Toton (Toton is boob), Miss Toti, many of them having strictly no meaning. When I was 9 and we got an Internet connection at home, my bro made me an e-mail adress which was called what it still is, missclaque (@ ...). I was really upset, but since I was a total nab at any online operation, and I was 9, I kept it. For my nickname, I chose Missrouti, which I kept for a very short time. My best friend's nickname was Shadow_Ejv (Ejv being his initials) and I thought it was badass. You get it: I changed my nick to Shadow_Missrouti. He was a bit upset of that so he told me to remove it, so I said "ok then, I'll change it" and added Lord :). So finally, it made Lord Shadow_Missrouti (by that time I was 10 I think). Contractions were ShadowMissrouti and shadowrouti. And my friend changed later for shadejv, which pwns even more.

Later, much later, though, I thought about changing nick. When I created a new character in a MMORPG, I had finished with all the shadowmissrouti and misstoton and lordshadowmissrouti and everything. I decided to be a bit creative and think about a word I liked. Bismuth was it. Since then, I like much :)


By the way, I often use random words as nicks, such as "Enclume" (anvil), "Crevette" (shrimp) or "Bacchanale" (really random word for an orgy). In TrackMania, my online nick is ClaviculeAcrobatique, which means Acrobatic Clavicle. Yes.

My real name is Roope. But it's uncool to have a Finnish name with a capital letter as a nick (except Markku), so roope was born. woo.

my first name was gimpy, due to braking my tibia bone in my right leg on a dirt bike track. my two older brothers called me gimpy all the time because even after the crutches i had a limp, lo and behold, i ended up braking my left femur a few years after that in a snowboarding accident, resulting in a 16" stainless steal rod to be put inside of my femur, this has caused me to have somewhat of a permanent gimp.

i started playing elma maybe a in 2000 but didnt play often nor was very interested in the scene, sent in my first TT as gimpy to moposite in 2004 and then had a computer crash thus losing my old state.dat. when i sent in a new TT to abula he told me the nickname "gimpy" was already taken, i explained the scenario but that ass monkey didnt give a shit. so i took the "y" off and sent in as gimp and i suppose that was acceptable and to be.

My brother and his (and also my) friend were thinking about some nicknames, and there were many samples, at the end, my brother was Dr.Cortez and his friend was... i forgot, but it was some kind of Dr.. Their friends joined and made nicks like Dr. Shark, Dr.Wolfgang, Dr. eXitus and so. I an younger than them, so i wanted some too, an once when those two were talking some trash, i heard something like: "How are you, Mr. Tigro??" a liked it, so took name Dr.Tigro, but when that friend left to Germany, i forgot it. Now, when I came here, wanted some ORIGINAL nick, dunno if its so original, but i didnt want my classic: Mithrandir or Radagast. I reduced Dr.Tigro to Tigro, and so on.

i couldn't think of what to name my death knight in WOW, so i just typed in some random bullshit word: "Pingywings"
my friend found it really funny though, so it kinda stuck as a nick for my other chars, i've used it ever since purely because peoples first impressions are always "lol pingywings cool name welcom to scene because u hav cool name" (?) and also, i've never really had a default username as such before it

though i'm 80% sure the word Pingywings predates that DK, cannot remember for the life of me where it came from though...

I've got so many nicknames all over the place, because I can't decide on one that I like (I hate all of them). The one on Lauta I got by googling "random name generator" and pressed the button... The "t" should be a "d" (as in "hybridation"), but I typo'd and I've had to live with it for the last 6 months. I think I'll change nick again soon, I'm sick of this one, it's too complicated.

When we played football with friends, I always was a goalkeeper. And then there was this Swiss goalkeeper named Pascal Zuberbühler. On one occasion, one of my friends just started calling me Pascal Zuberbühler. I dunno why, maybe he associated my real name (Patryk) with Pascal. Anyway, I adopted the nickname which isn't very unique (it's always used already when I register to some boards) but certainly doesn't originate from well-known physicist.

It's about one of his legs, "ben" in Swedish means leg. Such original nickname imo.

My name is Björn and in my country region we have an own old language which is called "Jämtländska" and Björn (the animal bear) in this language is "Bjenn" and I simply love it.
Some people I know calls me Bjenn sometimes :P

It's my initials, and schoolmates started calling me ICS at the age of 10 :D (listen the google woman, how weird it is in original Hungarian pronunciation XD also lolled hard when realized it is "icy ass" in English spelling)
In the beginning, I had written it in full uppercase. "Correct" written form would be ICs, ("Cs" counts as one letter in the alphabet), but didn't like that. Lowercase i with a dot and uppercase CS looked better. I've been using this form since 8th grade.

Well my nick is pretty self-explanatory, it's my firstname and the first initial of my lastname. Elma community was really the first community I entered on the internet and I wasn't exactly the kind of gamer or anything who would have some cool fantasy name and I didn't even think I should have a nick other than my name. Not sure when and how it settled as my nick tho, probably early times I started using irc and "ville" was already taken so I just went for "ville_j" and that's it.

afaik I don't use Tigro anywhere else anymore. Yet I still like having Hobbes avatar across many boards.
When I was about 8 years old or so, we used to play outside with friends, and having a nick was cool back then. Our group developed some kind of "Doctor" nicks, such as Dr. Cortez, Dr. Exitus, Dr. Wolfgang, etc. But I didn't have one yet. When we were playing outside one day, a friend o randomly said something in the lines of "Good day, mr. tigro!" (I don't remember the context at all). And I kinda liked it, because I could just use it as my Dr. Tigro nick (I guess I was desperate). Later I dropped the doctor tag to simplify.
Needless to say, I think it's really stupid nick (you know, Nigro osv.).
Other than that I use many other nicks, and in Steam I change it like 3 times a week, just because I can (and Huckleberry Finn was totally savage). Most popular are Peavey (guitars, anyone?) or Mirage (sometimes combined into MiragePV for 'nick in use' treatment)
