Lots of people have stories that go with their usernames, so what does 606v2 have to offer, why did you decide to give yourself the internet monicker you have?

My name comes from years ago when I first signed up to the old 606, I had a groundskeeper at my school whose name was I Leak, which for obvious reason is a funny name, when signing up it was the first thing that came in my hand, but when I tried to give myself the username ILeak 606 told me I had to put something in front of it, and have the options invincible was one of them so I chose that one. Then the the (CL-6WF) part of my name is because of my character in 6WF is Crime Lord so CL.

What about youse guys?

Well my surname is Freeman and I was nicknamed 'Freaky' Freeman at primary school and it has stuck ever since.

Years and years ago I used to own some home recording equipment and I used to produce hip-hop beats for local emcees. A few lads would come round and lay down their vocals and when I would mix them down to CD or tape I would write on the sleeve 'produced by FreakShow records'!

A few days before I signed up to the old 606 I was talking to one of those emcee's about them days and that's why I chose that username. I had to spell it with two E's as FreakShow was deemed unsuitable if I remember correctly.

Played rugby league through school (well, it was in Dewsbury, which was Eddie Waring's home town as well), and at University. Favourite position was as hooker, who also acts as 'dummy half', i.e. the player taking the ball at most play the balls.

Have used the same on various message boards previously.

Years ago I was chatting to the lads in the office about me DJ'ing. They said I needed a DJ name so we had a brain storming session.

One of the lads said, well you live in Newcastle, so why not a play on words with the geordie term "Wae'aye man"
Not just Y I Man, but The Y I Man.
And it stuck from there (I never used it as my DJ name though)
Around the same time I joined 606 and used it as my user name, and been the same ever since.

Y I Man = The Y I Man

Mine is from the Electric Six track - "Electric Demons in Love", that I was listening to a lot when I first joined the original 606.

I have no idea what an Electric Demon is - I'll probably find one day that its a Detroit term for some kind of deviant homosexual

Hero – came about from my long running efed character and that I had a Messiah complex Wink

Before that I had the username Macclads for a longtime on 606, that’s due to my hometown and its most famous band.

Mine? Well, take your pick:

I'm either a huge prehistoric carnivore or a 100-ton walking tank from 1,000 years in the future...either is cool with me. Wink

I changed the spelling after finding users on other forums had already used the name Dire Wolf.

Dyrewolf - can you put all images in a spoiler tab (site rules to keep it work friendly)

Just select the image code and then click on the "others" box and select "spoiler". The image will be wrapped in the spoiler OK

Can you edit your message to get the hang - cheers

Looks like someone beat me to it Hobo. Sorry - didn't realise pics had to be spoilered too. Though having the thumbnail images were for that reason.

Will remember in future. thumbsup

Mine is an abbreviation of my old 606 moniker "Cariadwr" which is Welsh for "lover". Most of the regular posters call me Cari now, so that kind of stuck really.

Draigoch is welsh for Redragon, which is ...um... because I'm Welsh and all that. Not very exciting really...

Tiptoes was the name I was lumbered with in my younger years because I boxed on the balls of my feet and ran on my tiptoes. So my nickname was either going to be Tiptoes, Skippy (faaaaaaaaar to chavvie never liked it) or neil neil orange peel ( 🤦 ) so tiptoes won. 88 being the year of my birth

I used to play counterstrike a lot as a lad and this was my nick on there. Used to spray tags of Prawns all over the map.

No idea why I chose it.

Kenny - you can change it by clicking into your profile if you don't like the way it looks on screen. It'll still be your log in name though.

We used to allow it for everyone but we found people were changing their names and it was had to keep tabs on some trouble makers.

So we have now made name changing only possible through request and for only good reasons - CAPITALS is a good reason!

I remember when signing up to the old 606 that the nickname I wanted was taken. Being a WWE fan I went for the first nickname that sprung to mind and also added a little twist with the spelling not to make it look too cheesey.
