I work in a warehouse sorting boxes onto belts; one of the slang terms for sorter is "box tosser."

Used to be "Classic" in my early gaming days.

Vio now, it is short for Violent and Violent is short for Violent Murder.

My current name comes from a character from the game Melty Blood. It is based in an interesting legend.

I was trying to make a name on PSN a few years ago and all the ones i used to use when playing PC games were unavailable, so in frustration I just typed the first thing that came into my head.

My username used to be Dare88 everywhere since i played runescape back in 2003. However i decided it was not unique enough and translated dare to the Catalan version being Atrevir. Unique enough IMO

Its a playful term english speaking people give to afrikaans speaking people in my country (South Africa). Im half english half afrikaans. English speakers call afrikaans people rock spiders because the language sounds like rocks grating on other rocks... not sure how it fully originated but its well known in my country now.

I used it for a game a few years ago spur of the moment as a joke and its stuck ever since. It seemed alot better than the childish generic name I had been using up until that point.

(I was also fond of it because im freakishly scared of spiders.... its ironic :))

My nickname, "Ambusher", is simply taken from the fact that I just love to operate TDs in this game, and their best tactic for success is to ambush the intended target.

Mine was my nickname in the Military, mostly because of my last name being Caine. So instead of calling me Beelzebub thay called me Bellzy or Bellzybub. And yes the two words do sound very differant.

Bellzy

I'm from a basketball board and I'm also using the nick RiisingSun(my surname is Riising) on some games, but the HighFlyer15 nick is something people from my past recognise me by, when I'm playing other games, so I'm sticking to it..
