How did you come up with your...

27 posts in this topic

...IM name?

We've had threads about how we came up with our screen name on the message board(s), but what about your Instant Messenger ID, whether it is AIM, YahooIM, etc. (especially if it is different than your screen name here)?

*pauses*

Of course, only share if you want people to contact you via IM....

AND:

Anyone else, like me, have people on your IM buddy list(s) that, sadly, you've no idea who they are anymore?

I don't open my IMs as much as I used to. Years ago (or so it seems), I spent most of the evening IMing with people. Now, along with other things, my evening hours are spent reading and posting to groups/boards. So, when I do open up my IMs, I almost always see a screen name that I do not know to whom it belongs anymore....

just like every single message board, login name and every internet name i have, my IM name is the same, SuperSport623.

I started using this name about three years ago, just randomly, because at the time when i was 15, i was, as is today, in love with classic chevy SS's; Chevelles, Impalas, Camaros, Novas, Montes.... and the 623 is silly, but my birthday... june 23 (1990)

my only other recent IM name was GT500RT100...this was before the current gen of overweight, fugly stangs.. my love was with the original GT500... and the RT100 is my toy that ive had since i was 12 (and was riding yesterday) a 2000 Yamaha RT100 Dirtbike :smilewide:

Funny thing about my C&G screen name was that when I first joined I didn't really realize this was a dedicated GM fansite with the occasional "other guys" members. I saw "Cadillacfan" and thought "Dodgefan sounds good" :P

I rarely use AIM, in fact i forget what my s/n is :lol:

I don't use yahoo

My email addy for MSN is Liger_Ultimate_X in dedication to what used to be my favorite show/anime, Zoids, and my favorite Zoid, Liger Zero...which is an Ultimate X. Most if not all of you probably have no idea what any of it is but that's OK. :P I used to be a huge fan of the series, my screen names and usernames had some variation of Liger Zero. my yahoo email is Liger_Zero_CAS for example. I used to even run the 5th most popular Zoids site on the web. It still exists although I haven't updated it in years. Zoids Unofficial.

But I digress. My other screen names / usernames are Kimura, which was the very first original anime-style character I drew up about 6 years ago in high school. As I've gotten better at drawing he's evolved as well, and basically become my online persona of sorts.

My first car was a 1985 Cutlass Ciera (still have it) when I registered on other sites I always used 85cieraholiday, but since AIM won't let you put numbers first it became...CieraHoliday85 . Very original I know lol.

Mine are all the same and have been for 8 years. Good old Blackviper8891. I was evil at the time and thought it sounded dark and has the my birth year backwards. Although, I do have two spare screen names that I use on occasion... Milliamori95 and BCVW8891. The former is easy to figure out... Millenia shortened + love in spanish + yeah of the Milly. Yep. And the latter... a combo of my regular screen name in initials with my regular name's initials.

Hmmm, let me see - how did I come up with mine? Hmmm. That's a hard one. Well, I am in the car business and my last name is exactly the same as my name here, except one letter is different. Guess I was born for this...............

Oh, and I use DirkDiggler on other sites............oops, was I supposed to say that? :blush:

My AIM name is GreenChevy05...at the time I had a Green 2005 Silverado. My e-mail address is greenchevytruck for the same reason.

Isn't that original and/or creative?

AIM: Avanti Italia - Made in late 1999, because my friends and I were going to Italy for our first time... it means "Go Italy!"

Yahoo IM: PaoloAntonio1977 - My first and middle names "Paul Anthony" plus the year I was born.

C&G: Paolino - "Little Paulie", because family and some friends' families always calls me Little Paulie, despite the fact I'm 6'3"... just because I'm the young one, and my other friends just call me Paulie.

I'll do both of mine. My C&G (and all other forums) name is obviously NOS2006. My name on here was originally NOSFerrari2006.

  • NOS because I thought it was a completely badass thing (though I am SUPER afraid of running it now that I know what it is) back in the Fast and the Furious days (NAWSSSSS!!!11!!1!!!).
  • Ferrari because I thought they were my favorite cars, but I now realize they're just overpriced POSs, even though I wouldn't mind a 360 Modena or an F430.
  • 2006 because that's when I graduated.

I shortened it to NOS2006 at the change of servers from Snitz to where we are now.

My AIM screen name is DTD Tank. That's simple. My fraternity is Delta Tau Delta, and my fraternal nickname is Tank. By the way, Will Ferrell is a Delt too!

I really don't use I/M much, and I am Camino LS5 when I do (it was a typo).

But, It works as that is what was in my '70 Camino.

An LS6 Camino is my automotive Holy Grail. I would choose one above all others.

A simple breakdown: Yellow Jacket = the yellow color option on the 2004 GTO, 894 = a set of numbers chosen at random. I've also used SubLime9C1 on other forums (SubLime is a old hi-impact color option used by Chrysler Corp. in the Seventies; 9C1 is the designation for a Caprice police cruiser, which I wanted to replace my S10 when I devised the username), as well as ToronadoGT (the Toronando was an Olds, obviously, and the name was also used by Fender guitars for a model that was discontinued in 2006; it was an attempt to link my passion for cars and guitars together; GT was random).

I sort of would like to have my username here to be changed to just Yellow Jacket, dropping the 894 and the run-on letters. Or Phantom, as in Phantom Black Metallic, another GTO color option, as my love for the color black on cars is greater than my love of the color of yellow. But I'd rather not bother the mods. :smilewide:

Quite the creative bunch, we are :).

Me, though, not so much. Which reminds me ... hmph, I asked the question ... and forgot to add mine!

AIM = fc72mc

When I created this one, I didn't have my '72 MC yet, so I used fc (abbreviation for part of one of my Email addresses) along with "72MC", for the MC I didn't have.

YIM = knightfan2691

This one should be self-explanatory. I'm a fan of the Monte Carlo, which uses the Knight Shield/Crest as its emblem. The 2691 are the last digits of my older 4 MCs: 197(2), 197(6), 197(9), 198(1). I created this one before I bought my '87 MC LS.

The 1969 Pontiac Custom-S was my very 1st car, which I still own today. It's a 350 ci V8 RWD. <------ :smilewide: It's as old as I am. It's one of the rarest of the Pontiac A Bodies built between 1968 - 1972, as this car was a one model year only car.

I love that car, it holds many memories for me. We used it as our wedding car and I even brought my daughter home from the hospital in that car when she was born. So that's why it's my name on most auto forums, but not all. :AH-HA_wink:

I don't know how in the hell I came up with this name, but there's a bunch of people with the same name now, and they're all on gaming forums. :(

However, I just use my first name on MSN, and such.

Heh ... maybe it is a "term of endearment" on those boards ... or a character, perhaps?
