Nickname on the Forum

Unread postby Lepardfan » Wed Mar 04, 2015 9:34 am

I am sure some of us have wondered where or how some of the fellow mites got the nicknames they use here, or what inspired them to use this particular nickname.:hmz:

Although some of them are quite obvious, like mine :mrgreen: .

I just thought that it might be interesting where some of you or how you got the nicknames.

Please feel free to share. :popcorn:

Loooooong ago, when I was young and innocent and naive :littleangel: and I joined the forums, I used my nick that my kids call me, made up of my family 'name' and that I love birds. My SO thinks it is time I grow up though and use a more mature nick on the forums. :doh:

Grant was one of our dogs who died two years ago. Missy is the dog on the bottom of my avvie.

DB I think the forum members get used to a forum alias or name and if a person changes your alias or nick then the forum members might think it is someone else :) For example I am used to Dinkybird :) and if I all of a sudden read Pearl Spotted Owl (just an example) I will wonder who the new forum member is with so many posts :D :doh: .

NetEk is who I am. it's Afrikaans for Just Me that is who I am and that is what you'll get. no show no fluff just me......

I use this Name on other Forums as well.... lazy to think of other names......
I live in my own little world. But it's okay they know me here.

Thank you DinkyBird, GM and NetEk for sharing it with us. :gflower:

DinkyBird sounds quite mature to me :tongue:

And yes GM you are quite correct we are all already so used to the names on this forums, to change it may just cause a lot of confusion. :mrgreen:
