    Eff, i was about 7-9 ish, I was signing up for Runescape CLASSIC(not the 3d ish graphics that are crap)
    I couldn't decide on a username, i saw an advert on TV, it said 'iris' on it so i put 'iris200' as the username I would have, I later told people on runescape a little story that i was originally gonna be called iristle, but someone stole that name. Some time later in the year, after my account got haxxed because i was so stupid at that time, I named my new account 'iristle'. I have used that name almost ever since.

When i was about 6 or 7(ive been played the computer since i was 1, i got pics even!!! and started warcraft 2 before kindergarden) i dont knwo why but changed it to milcon, and have used it for usernames ever since(my name is Milton, so Milcraft was like Warcraft to me or some wierd).

    I got my game from one of the Civilizations games. The Kazak part is from the unit Cossack, which I thought was the best unit in the game. The Soviet part comes from Russia, which is where the Cossack originates.

    I'd love to hear the other 10. Were they all as lacking in capitalization and spacing, or does "soul collector" look cooler that way?

    That's freaking hideous. soulcollector is much better than SoUlCoLlEcToR. soulcollector, GJ on not capitalizing every other letter.

    acutally "Soulcollector" is a song of Bloodbath. first of all, I tried at least 6 user names which were not songs/bands but I couldn't think of anything else. the small "s" in the beginning of my user name doesn't bother me.

    I picked this name because....well.....it's my real name. I would feel really weird using a fake one.

    I had some other old names with 'The' in it, 'Divine' and off course 'Boss'.
    So I was thinking: Hey can't I mix them? And that's how I made it :wink:
