How Did You Get Your ID? (Thread)

47 replies 655 views Edited Aug 2, 2012

So how did you get your ID? For some people it's obvious, like their name, date of birth, naming what the human body is made off, seizure while choosing the name ( what kind of ID is you93383940034sda ? ). Maybe fakehound's gonna audition for a spot as a double agent on Cats vs dogs, you never know. Anyhow, my story - In 2005 there was a lovely site known as Pokemon Crater. It had over 11 million members, with 5 million online every day. Basically, you had the best representation of being in a pokemon infested world on the internet. Now any user name I could think of was already taken. The way you ranked up, was by extracting points. So, I tried, ' TheExtractor' username was taken, I replaced the O with an E and boom I got in. ( This should calm the nazis on my case for changing the spelling) From that day on any site I registered for I used this very ID.

 

So how did you get your ID?

Well mine was obviously well thought out, and not accidentally typed and accepted when I was in middle school.

I got my ID by going to the off-topic section and asking my off topic questions there. Then, I went to play a PSP game that had online, so I created a PSN quickly, not caring about my PSN name because I just wanted to play it. I chose my name and then 3 random numbers after it.

 

I only kept it for my PS3 because I bought a few crash games on it and I wanted to keep them. I wish I hadn't done that, though...

It was Metal Gear Solid portable ops. Didn't really play mulitplayer too much, but I also needed the account to download stuff from the store.

Got my first name from the name Nathan Drake (obviously) and the second name from a character called Jack Shepard who was in LOST and I loved that series back in the day

well, "Abbas" is my last name, and there was this kid in middle school who thought my last name was the coolest last name ever :robotfrustrated:. so he kept calling me "the Abbas man". 

 

so highschool comes and I got my PS3, and when I was creating my PSN account, I remembered that middle school kid. so I put that in, but PSN said I had to add a number, so I added the number 47 exactly because I am fan of the Hitman series (can't wait until Hitman: absolution by the way! :robotvery-happy:) and I love the series, so I used the agent's codename which was, 47.

 

yea....I know.....Cool story bro......

My nickname when I took Tae Kwon Do was "Southpaw" because I was the only left-handed person in the class and I was a difficult opponent to spar with. I also want to do Let's Plays (for those who don't know, those are like walkthroughs with a live commentary), or LPs, so... SouthpawLP.
