Hello fellow users of Game Killer! I have written up this guide so in the future, you can use decent usernames. If you want to change yours after reading this guide for some reason, you can always private message Darkness or Netro.
Four Tips For A Good Username
1. Capitalize Your Username
The only times you see people who are both intelligent and have a good name that is not capitalized is when they think that the website that they sign up for either automatically capitalizes their username or makes every letter in their username lowercase. Most sites you sign up for always take your original input of the username you signed up with. To make you not look like some person who has never been to school, I suggest you capitalize your name. Even if you don't see it, there is a big difference between
andnetro. The first quote implies that the user has a cool name, but is either not so intelligent or thought that the site automatically capitalizes the username.Netro
There can be exceptions to this tip, for sometimes it can look cool, such as the names konr and mero. These usernames aren't that long and capitalizing is not that necessary. As you can see mero looks okay, while wraithelen looks slightly stupid. Another exception is multiple words. Although it may look a little stranger, it will still be okay. An example of this is (thanks to him):
This is a looks better than my previous example of 'wraithelen'.freedompeace
2. Refrain From Using Numbers and Under Dashes
To make this short, using numbers and under dashes just make you look either stupid or nerdy. An example of this would be:
As you can see, this person is using numbers, which shows that he has no sense of creativity whatsoever. Here is an example of a name with under dashes:Kamikaze12492
This just looks long and annoying, and it also implies to other users that this person is slightly stupid. If your name is already taken, think of another name, and don't start using numbers or under dashes.I_Am_Your_Father
3. Mix or Take from Other Words
If you truly cannot think of a good name, try this. You can always mix other usernames that you have come up with, for example (pulls out random things from the top of his head) silver and snake. There are several combinations to mixing these two words. Eventually, you can come up with a decent username, such as
or something like that (I chose some pretty bad examples ). Another thing is to steal parts of a word. For example, I was thinking of a new username, and then I thought of 'kryptonite'. Since kryptonite is widely known as Super Man's weakness, it would probably be taken already. I had to think of something that would sound alright from that word. Eventually, I got the username 'Krypt' which is the first part of Kryptonite. I used this username for several different forums and websites over a period of time.Silvake
4. Be Creative
You can also make up your own username from out of the blue. Just think of something that your username can either look like, be related to, or just have the same first letter. On MMOSpot, my name was Rennac, the Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones' primary rogue. As I was thinking of this, a I experimented with different names starting with 'Re'. I eventually got a good name that I'm not going to tell you guys because I am still using it for other things such as games, forums, and websites, but from my experience, you can always be creative and either make up your own name or make your own methods of creating a good username.
That is all for this username guide. I will add on to it if I get any suggestions or ideas.
1. Suggestion by Life - Hobbies In Your Username
You may also relate your username to hobbies you have, such as (posted by Life) if you watch TV, you could use the username 'Television'. Another example is, if you like to eat, you could use a username that relates to food, such as 'Cheese' (haha).
