Where did you get your Nickname?
« on: 12 January 2006, 20:44:08 »
Where did you get the Nickname you use on these forums?

Some stories are fairly interesting when this gets asked. Mine's a little interesting I suppose.

CATS is a character from Zero Wing, the 1989 game for the Sega Mega Drive or 'Genesis'. He uttered the now famous badly-translated words "All Your Base Are Belong To Us..." that helped start an entire craze of photoshopping and game-references made by companies on their websites as big as HP and Microsoft.

I've used it on various forums since around 2001 and it's just stuck with me since.

Playaveli is basicly a derivative of "Makaveli" which was Tupac (2pac) Shakur's pseudonym.

2 reasons i choose this derivative:

1. Once I downloaded a very good remix of one 2pac Song. This remix was called "Playaveli remix"!

2. The word "play" is in it. I don't think i have to explain this any further ;) !


Last but not least it sounds really nice. I like it!

The name Jonty Rhodes, apart from being the name of a South African cricketer was put together by myself and Jhary Conel.

We were stuck for a name for our first career on Amiga SWOS 94/95. Thought it sounded rather funky so it stuck.

My Teammates of my Reallife Soccerteam called 1. FC Oberahr gave me that name, because in training I offen beat them with some tricky moves and I'm also a bit crazy, that's why they call me Crazy before I became this name, so it is a Mix between Crazy and Ronaldinho = Craizinho  ;D

Main actor of a german office TV series. If you know perhaps the main character from "The Office" you know Stromberg as its basically the same story.

I played long time basketball in Turkey. My number was 11. A teammate (he was also captain) wanted to get no.11. So i had to give it up. But after that i had been called eleven. So i was the real no.11 :) And it stays so  ;)
