I'd watched the movie "Amelie" and liked it. It was supposed to be a temporary change, but in the way back every attempt to change it led to someone saying "I don't see Amelie about anymore" or "your new name sucks". So "Amelie" it remains.

I was just an eighth grade kid when I first made this account. I actually had a couple accounts beforehand, both of which were something like "Nemesis PrimeX" ("X" being some numbers), which I have lost the log-in information for. Went and made a third account, promising myself that I'd be more active on the boards. I was sitting in front of the screen, trying to come up with an original name, and "Mindmaster" was the first thing to pop up. So it was, and shall be forever more. I've actually built up other, non-Transformers-related accounts with the same name, I've become so very fond of the name.

Later in life, I found that my name was not as original as I thought it was. :oops:

Embarrassing, but true, story: for whatever reason, I didn't catch on to your name, thinking it was some gibberish. Thinking that, I pronounced it as "Noid-uh-frame". A little less than a year later, I finally got it. I've been facepalming hard since. #-o #-o #-o

Years ago I signed up (for the very first time) to a message board of a Star Trek fandom. I don't even remember what it was called. I decided to Klingon-ize my name Michael into M'Kall. I liked it well enough that I carried it with me to other boards. Eventually I found a board that didn't like the apostrophe, so I dropped it and following good grammar, uncaptialized the K to become Mkall.

Motto: ""Death is the only way out.""
Weapon: Sword of Fury
Name: Sam

Self insertion character in comic strips friends and I would write in highschool: Samson (Not my choice, but I ran with it)

Transformer I really like: Devastator (even though my favourite character is Soundwave)

Samson + Devastator = Samsonator.... I guess...

I had considered changing it many times over the last... probably about 8 years or so... to fit it in with my usual online persona of "TheNewSam" but honestly even though I'm coming up on my 11th year on the site, I'm on so infrequently that the name is all the older members have to remember me by.

Motto: "Rule #34 of the Madeus Handbook: There is no Rule #34 in the comic."
Well I've always liked the term deus ex machina.

Of course, my previous name, Godzillabot Primal, needs no explanation as to the inspiration!

So when I decided to have my character regenerate in my comic, I wanted a new name to go with the face.

So I scrambled up "deus ex machina" into "Madeus". (Obviously I might add an EX, just because)

So that's me.

>:oP Meh... could have sworn that I had already posted this, but anyhoo...
Back in High School, I had a friend that had immigrated to the US,spoke very little English, and he also suffered from a speech impediment. He struggled through our English classes, and I offered to help him. As English was his second language, and his impediment kept him from pronouncing words correctly, The Hunchback of Notre Dame was read "Quasimodo" but my buddy would say "Fuhzimota" (which sounded like he was trying to say "fuzzy motor" which all of our disturbed circle though was really funny - I know, what a bunch of morons....but hey, it was the '80s...) Years later, I would try various smart-ass names for my first email account (back when ya had to PAY for internet browsers - you know, the Stone Age?) but the only one I could come up with that wasn't already taken (and that I could remember) was Fuhzimota, and it stuck... so as I've said elsewhere, I'm Fuhzi for life! :lol:

I know this thread has been dormant lately, but Burn doesn't like clogged garbage, so I'll bite.

I had always wanted the handle "Nemesis Magnus" because Ultra Magnus is one of my favorite transformers, and Nemesis is relevant to the franchise for various reasons. But that name was unavailable. So I changed it to Maximo because it sounds awesome, and was also TF related.
Go here to see my customs!

Well, I like Prime Rib. I also like like the Riblet platter at Applebee's. Of course, the word Prime doesn't need explanation. Mash it all together and you come up with a tasty handle for a Transformers site.
