Not really.  It's just what all my friends IRL call me. :tongue:  I felt that 'cralegoboy' was getting old (and made me sound like a little boy playing with his Legos, according to Jimbutcher), so I wanted something new.  I just went with what I was called.

Is this a permanent change from cralegoboy?

Same for you, is this permanent from JediAnakin?

Yes, I prefer it to the old Name. Not to say I won't change it in the future, but I probably will stick to this.

I think I prefer it to your old name, too. It's still a licensed character's name, but - no offense intended - 'JediAnakin' sounded like something one of the kids on MOCpages might pick.  :laugh:

Oh wow, can't believe I never saw this thread before. :blush:

Anyway, my name comes, obviously, from the Sith Lord of the Old Republic era, but the story is a little more complicated than "I just liked his name, so it became my screen name". It all started when I was growing up. I used to eat triple-decker sandwiches on a regular basis, and my mom jokingly called me "The Lord of Hunger". Well, later, when I got the Knights of the Old Republic game, coincidentally Darth Nihilus was called the Lord of Hunger (Or at least that's how I remember it, it was a while ago so I might be wrong). So, when I was asked to choose my screen name in the sign-up process, Darth Nihilus instantly came to mind. At first, I mispelled it (darthnihilius), but I corrected it later when I became a Knight and was able to.

Storel comes from my first Live Action Roleplay characters name, and he subsequently found his way into other RPG's and stuff.

If it hadn't have been Storel, I figure my screename woulda been from my Age of Empires days; Danthered. Dan because it's my name, red because it's my favourite colour*.  :laugh:

Go to your profile, in the top right corner of your About Me page it says "Edit my Profile", click that, and then there is a menu with stuff like "Change Signature", "Change Photo", "Change Avatar", and one says "Change Screen Name". Click that, then it will ask you for your password and what you want your new screen name to be.
EDIT: I just checked, and there are several tabs to open on the top of the screen when you click Edit My Profile, click the one that says "General Settings".

Funny thread.

1895 is not my birthday ;-) It is the date of forming my fav football team.
1895 Fortuna Düsseldorf.

That is the story behind my nick.

The first part of my name "purple" comes from the BEST LEGO COLOUR!!! The "paradox" part comes from two different places.

The LU faction, and just paradoxes in general. If you want to see some interesting ones, follow the links in my "Hi From Canada" topic.

A very valid reason!

My name comes from back at college where while playing football, I was accused of running... like a Duck! And it stuck. Not quite sure how I run like a Duck... in that sense the lad who accused me ran like a coke-vending-machine on legs!
