    For a made up username, it really flows.

    Hobo was a nickname from one college day years ago in the dorms I didn't get dressed one day during finals week, friend started calling me a hobo. Captain Hobo was then a play on the Simpsons with the joke of Homer's original name being Captain Wacky.

    "Captain Hobo, later renamed Larry"

    I don't know why people say changing your origin loses your account... I did it. I was level 20 something and my town stayed in tact. Went from my full name, to the user name at the left and it worked fine. The email didn't change obviously.

    I did this on a PC.
    I'm GamerGD3. Lost all 3000+posts for my (now) former name.

    80sarcades because....I spent way too much time (and rolls of quarters) playing at arcades back in the 1980's. Now I spend way too much time playing this game :mrgreen:

    Ah yes... the arcades... I remember having an allowance for 5-10 games and a crepe afterwards... Good old days...

    My name is Jayson & my mates call me JK. And I've always been fond of the AK47, it's my first choice in all shooter games where it's available.

    IronWaffly5x5 is my Xbox gamer tag also, not that I've played that in months. Had a different name in Xbox Live originally, but people butchered it all the time, so I came up with Iron Waffle, cuz I like the juxtoposition of the words. But that was taken as is by some Zune account (all tied together in M$ system), so added 5x5 as a reference from of one of my favorite shows.

    A Jewish friend used to call me shaygitz-- it means a non-Jewish male, the masculine equivalent of shiksa. I use it because there's never any danger of there being another, hence no "shaygitz4140" or similar.

    I'm Canadian and a girl lol. Not creative or original at all. I would like to change it though. Sounds like something a 12 year old girl would have as a name, not a 24 year old.

    A million years ago when I was setting up an AOL account for the first time, I wanted to use part of a nickname my dad gave me: Ericki Capricki (for Erica Caprice), and my fav number was/is of course 42. AOL apparently didn't allow screen names with the word "*" in it, so I took out the k and it became caprici42.

    When I began TSTO, I thought my account got messed up and frozen...wasn't getting tasks, and hey, what did I know? So I set up another account and added an extra 4 onto the end.

    The original account was fine, apparently, and I was just dumb. :D
