    Username Origins!

    I'm curious sometimes browsing the forums, wondering where people thought of their usernames, so I made a thread about it (:

    Some usernames are pretty self explanatory, but share the story/idea behind your forum username here!


    Mine is pretty simple. I was creating my first character for World of Warcraft years ago and I couldn't think of a name, so my boyfriend combined my name (Jessica, obviously!) with Kayla and my character's name was born. I use it on forums when I can't think of a good name (:

    Re: Username Origins!

    Mine came from when i started/owned this website.

    The original name i gave this site way back in 1996 was "The Photoshop Guru's Handbook".
    And i, was its 'Keeper'. Hence the nick, 'theKeeper'. My "Join Date" shows 2002 because that's when i started the Forum section of the site.

    Most or all of my original tutorials are still posted here too. That's interesting. hehe

    I handed off the site to a user known as Gaussian.
    I entrusted him with its care.
    He in turn sold it to its current owner and here we are today.

    I haven't been around here for a very long time.
    But now and then i find the time to visit and pass along some help if i can.

    It's good to see the community is growing and thriving again.
    Happy to meet you all. Hope you all enjoy your time here.

    Take care, see you round the boards. ;)

    Mark (aka theKeeper)...

    Thanks Mark, it's good to see you. I'd run into your posts and Gaussians many times as I made forum searches. It's good to have you stopping by at times, our PSG Professor Emeritus!

    Jessica, I'm glad you started this. I've often wondered myself.

    I figure most people think mine is pretty obvious but there's a bit more to it. When I first got AOL ISP, I wanted IDclare but it was taken. I didn't really care for ibclare, but then I thought about it. I am from IB, Imperial Beach, CA, which is abbreviated like 2 other of our beaches, Pacific and Ocean Beach, PB & OB. So it is a double entendre which I have kept through a few ISPs and still use for forums and the like.

    But, I think I may ask Steve to change mine to Clare . . . too many members think I'm a guy, lol.

    Re: Username Origins!

    I searched long and hard for the perfect user name.
    After much thought and consideration I settled on Steve.

    If my mom and dad thought it was good enough for me, I thought it was good enough for PSG.
