    1.) I chose my username because I would personally say i'm an ugly person.

    2.) As of October 28th 2017, my avatar is obviously the "Extreme close-up" scene from the 1st Wayne's World movie. It always makes me laugh. :)

    Changed name so might aswell just..
    Cheekqo is the name of a small dog I got last year, who passed away three months ago as of typing this, so I decided to pop my inspirations and just do this.
    My avatar is a skeleton doing a dancing dave.
    --- Post updated ---
    Actually, you know what, lets go deep into the shithole that my account history is.
    So, my first account name "codyboy8" appeared up on steam sometime when I was 8, I started using the name, I was a complete dick on that account and I'm confused how I didn't get banned.
    I tried downloading my first mod when I was 8 when I had first gotten BeamNG.Drive and, err. I thought creating my own folder then putting little files in them would work, it was stupid but I didn't care as it was my evolution, through 2015 I pummelled through BeamNG looking for its features and I eventually got burned out with the game.
    Until, on January the 15th, 2016, I learned how to make mods work, I started downloading them by the hundreds before I broke the game.
    On February the 6th, I created my first BeamNG account with the name "codyboy8", with my first post being a cringey RP post in the general discussion.
    I eventually levelled out, and just done things on the forum, until May of 2016 when I started a flamewar with @Amtrak America which resulted in me getting told to stop, so I stopped until a few days later when it happened again, I created another flame war with @Amtrak America and I got banned for it, I said my account was hacked and my account was unbanned, and guess what happened....
    I started another flamewar with @Amtrak America which led to me being told to stop and I did, I went into a little "only come onto the forums when I'm bothered" mood, which lead to me having my longest time without making a post ever, which was a month.
    I came back in February of this year and started becoming overconfident in my posting abilities and acted like an asshole.
    Until, Narwhal passed away while I was taking a little break, I came back to know that and I took an extra long break to let the forums slide as my attitude was not the greatest for the amount of bad the forums was in.
    My most well known moment being a dick move and I shamed a mod creator for "making his mod too hard", which a month later had my account banned, and I came back within a month without acting like an ass.
    I started averagely posting until my dog died on the 11th of August 2017, where I took a day break and almost lost my sanity during it so I returned and was still losing my sanity.
    I went into a half depressed mood until about a month later where I returned into full commission and returned posting.
    Where I was perma-banned on a garry's mod server that I haven't played on for years...

    My avatar is the almighty "realistic Vancakes," that I drew a few months ago. I don't plan to change it.

    I forgot why I chose "baarry5444" as my username, but I do know that it has my real-life name in it. (In case you still don't know, Barry is my real name.)

    The rage guy thinking is my profile picture. I may consider changing my profile picture in the future.

    Yes sir, I did. But I don't want to derail this thread. It's all posted in the "Drawings/sketches thread in the automotive forum.

    My username was kinda created out of boredom
    I figured I needed something that said what type of gamer I am

    I thought my name would have been taken

    I've had this name since about 2013 or 2012 (online) I'm not quite sure
    Maybe even earlier

    Racermon
    Says all it needs to
    Simple
    Straightforward and easy to remember

    My name needed race in it, my name started in Forza 4 (back in 2010 I actually named my profile Racermon)
    The reason for this is that I was actually one of the highest people on the leaderboards in Forza 4
    The top gear challenge for Forza 4 I ranked around top 2%
    Every challenge but one (the radical sr8 challenge) I was top 20-10%
    On average I was top 15-10%
    I am proud of that
    So Racermon is the name I picked, and the name stuck since it also has no numbers

    Since i updated my username, the Brown_Diplomat name is pretty much picked by me because i have a odd fetish for M-Bodies and to match with my Dodge Diplomat drawing which was replaced by two crash test dummies driving a 1977 Cutlass.

    Corvette86_97 was my first ps3 username.
    I like 90's cars so I decided to put a beautiful car from the need for speed hot pursuit (1998)

    I can't remember if I've responded to this or not (hazards of being a "Grandpa Gamer").

    Username is one I made up when I moved to Arkansas back in 1990. Name is David and I am in Arkansas. Hence: davidinark. I use it for 99% of things I do online. The other 1% is where someone else beat me to the username.

    Avatar is just my name in script surrounded by my online interests/activities.

    Welp I'll give you guys some username history. I've had this username for over 8 years now. I created it for a PS3 nascar 09 league where everyones name was supercharge, funny thing is the leader supercharge70 told me to create a name and pick a number so I added one and got supercharge71. Now the cool part is that there were a ton of other supercharges along with me like for example supercharge15, supercharge30, supercharge 48 and the list goes on but I don't want to list them all, there was about 20 of us all together, flash forward a couple of years and I am playing a random lobby of burnout paradise and lo and behold I see supercharge15, so I come over the mic and say "hey man nice name" and so we start talking and it turns out he was one of my league buddies! What happened next I will never forget, he then added me again and we joined another lobby where there was about 5 more of my kind XD all my old league buddies after all that time together again...it was awesome. Sadly we all fell out and I sold my ps3 and they all moved to ps4 while I moved to pc. So, I use this name mostly because it has stuck all these years but I kind of honor my old friends in a way.

    Ok, time to get serious.

    My NAME Came from first Nintendo DS I had back in 2011, came up with the name myself, and used it for my steam account in 2014. Then in 2015, bought BeamNG, then close to my Birthday, found this website and i made a account, using this username. So since 2011, workclock1 will be a username of mine!

    My PROFILE Picture came from my like of Hellcats, found the image, set it as my second profile picture (old one was crashing nascars), and since it's almost thanksgiving (as this time of this post) i edited it to be a thanksgiving like theme, then it will return normal, and Christmas theme, and etc.
