What does your username mean?
Why did you choose it?
Have you had a name change in the past?

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I will begin with my username. :)

I am writing detective stories for quite some years now and the main person is detective Drimal. I was going through tough times and writing enabled me to feel better and less depressed!

Therefore I've chosen Drimal for my username. :D

When I used to live in Canada, people weren't able to pronounce "dario" well, they'd read it "dadyo", then that nickname just stuck.

My previous username came from the Northern Lights (i was northernlight 1 1/2 year back) which i saw here in Holland on October 30, 2003, since it was one of the beautiful things i've ever contemplated, i changed my name into northernlight since i admire the northern lights and can't wait on my next chance...

The English community in the Netherlands talks a mixture of Dutch and English that sounds like something from Mars and is lovingly referred to as Dutglish. My English is better than that, but I love the word. As I'm part Dutch, part English by upbringing it's also kinda appropriate.

http://etsiit.ugr.es/usuarios/pedrosa/gayofa%20y%20poti%20poti.jpg

Why did you choose it?
When I first joined the Sanex WTA board, there was some glich with the software, so I kept trying to join using different names. For some reason Gallofa worked, so I was stuck with it.

Have you had a name change in the past?
When I joined this board, it was just a bunch of friends, so I think I joined as Bea (my real name), but then when they closed Sanex and everybody moved in here, I asked Poe to change my username to Gallofa, because the Sanex people knew me by that name.

Not sure why I chose "Hello" as my username :o and have kinda regretted it from time to time. But when I first joined this board (about a year ago) I had no intentions of actually posting, so it didn't matter to me. But I don't mind it. If I was going to change it, I would probably change it to something to do with "Priv" I thought of Privesk or Privesko because I thought of changing my username to Esko. Priv also sounds like a shortened version of privileged which is pretty sweet! :lol:

Kirt12255
Dec 23rd, 2006, 01:30 AM
Hmmm well mine has a bit of history behind it.;)

Years and years ago when I first started on the internet I was signing up for a hotmail account. I was told by my mum to use an alias name for security reasons. I chose the name Kirt and Kirt12255 was the only name available.

When I began playing backgammon in tournaments online, I accidentally put my e-mail address in the name bit and so my account for the league had Kirt12255 as my name. So I used that name for more than 6 years and I got used to it.

When I came here and signed up I couldn't think of anything and thought "stuff it I'll just use that".
