Back in 2006,I had my Runescape(yes,Runescape) account locked up or banned or whatever,and wanted to create a new account,so I tried to find a name that will have Dani or Daniel(my first name) in the account name,and also make it sound Russian,so I just sticked to Danikov,and still today,I go by that name.

I chose my nick, because nothing feels better than being brainwashed, enslaved, bound and helpless under supreme control of a powerful dominant woman.

I was eating dino nuggets when I came up with mine. I added the "snar" to sound more masculine and to attract mates.

I hate my username

You do know you can change it, right?

Supposed to be a Yautja (Predator/Crab-faced guy with the dreads, for those unfamiliar) lore name. 


Proudly ripped it off and used it as my own like a gargantuan, shameless fa**ot. The only thing I need now is an actual Yautja OC. Like one of those weird Sonic OCs on Deviant Art, lol.

Should've gone with Trinoodles. As for me, Mr. Scratch is a character from Alan Wake, but I'm sure theadmiral likes my other name better.

Yeah, I just need to wait until I've been here for a year to change it.

Any one played Suikoden V?


Evening Dusk

Setting Sun

Silent Afterglow

Vermillion Sky


Get the reference?


Probably not. I took the name of the last spell of the Twilight Rune and changed it to Twilight Sky because it sounded better than Vermillion Sky.

1 - Rare Echelon is a play on "rear echelon": the POGUES of any operational force as part of the Brigade structure of the NZ Army. REMF is the original acronym, have a Goog' on both terms if you feel so inclined. The rare part came about as a female friend of mine once made the observation that it was rare for any guy these days to not "get angsty when [a girl] starts crying hysterically on your shoulder", amongst other things/remarks that people have made about me. The echelon part reflects my milit'ry service, self explanatory.

2 - I'm not an active member of any other forum/community/whatever, so pretty much N/A.

3 - Nope. I can't say I've seen anyone else sporting the name in any other form.

It came out to my mind in a split second before joining a racing server in SAMP a couple of years ago. I didnt want to wear the clan tag there so i thought of a name and this came to my mind. I still use it nowadays, on steam, and on all of the onlines games i play, or played in the last years, I dont use the caps anymore like I do in here though

A couple of years ago, I was driving down the highway headed home in my company truck and there was an 18 wheeler just ahead of me that clipped a white tail deer. At first I didn't know what the truck had hit, because the truck suddenly slowed down and I was more focused on keeping my truck from ramming him in the rear. The only thing I saw in all the excitement was something brownish fly toward the ditch. Anyway, to make a long story short, I turned my truck around and went back to see what the truck had hit and I found a good size doe laying dead in the ditch. I hurried up and loaded her in the back of my truck, drove home, skinned and quartered the meat. Took part of the meat had it made into Cajun sausage and we celebrated the doe's death in a big pot of gumbo.

I used to be one of those 'Myth hunters' back when GTA San Andreas came out. I loved searching for easter eggs, watching myths and legends on the internet, sharing ideas/stories on forums.


My favorite myth was the epsilon program in GTA San Andreas. I was somehow very interested in the story behind it.

(It didn't have a big part in the game like in GTA V. It was mostly a few vague stories told by pedestrians or on WCTR)

For me I had lots of names, when I was a kid I used a translator to translate my name "Fares" (I was a speshul one) and it turned to Rider which is kind of my nick and started choosing it, although it started to be old and alot of timesit'd be used.

That was when I was playing an RPG with my bro when his friend quit the game and gave us his account, after it a week another guy quit and my bro gave me his first friend's account. It was named "ForJagler" and it sort of catchy especially with the song and I kept using it.

When it gets used I use similar names like "Jagstone" / "Jagler" / "For_Jagler"

TL;DR: I'm some guy who ripped another man's name and used it.

My username means "brave young man" or something like that in Greek (Παλικάρι).

There is no equivalent word in English.

My user name kind of relates back to THE GHETTO SAMURAI account. After loosing that account I created this because i wanted to return. The reason it's called this is because Jesus is supposed to come back to the world and I came back to the forum so yea. The z was added to make it look ghetto.

THE GHETTO SAMURAI account was named that because my dad is black and my mom is Japanese and yea.

I came up with hornyturtle when I was 12. apparently "horny" is an inappropriate word for most forums/game devs so I changed it to horned.
