    There probably was a thread on the old forum about this. But alas! It is now lost forever. So, please explain the story of your forum name. I'll start:

    My first name is Nikki. Well no it's not, but it's the name I go by irl, so it practically is. And although you might well think I am great (and you would be correct), my name isn't (entirely) me boasting about said greatness.

    One of my teachers in school actually used to call me "Nikki The Great". But he wasn't appreciating my greatness sadly. He was mocking my height! I was very small all through my school years and actually finished growing super late (aged 25!) so I guess he thought he was funny to apply this name to a tiny person.

    Now that I have finally reached a satisfactory height (5"5) I would like to run into that teacher and see what he had to say for himself now! And stomp all over him in my steel toed boots probably, rawr!

    Ok now tell me yours.

    I like this origin story. Mine is the main Character from Final Fantasy 7 which was probably my favorite game around the time I made my account.

    It still is my favorite but I was all about it then. Here is a picture of the main character

    Still?

    Anyway, I started using BigOleDummy as my gamer tag about............ I don't know 5, 6 or 7 years ago. First use was in World of Warcraft. Its works really well for online games because there are (believe it or not) quite a few players who take it literally. Kids I would assume. Always better to be under-estimated in combat than over-estimated.

    The name itself came to me because ..... the older I get the more I realize how much I don't know. When you're young or youngish you tend to think you have all the answers to all the questions of life, the universe and everything. But as the years and experiences add up, you realize just how much you DON'T know about things. That there is very little in life that's black and white. Shades of gray predominate.
