    My first car.

    I like hoppy beers. A hopback is used to add fresh hop aroma to wort as it is run from boil kettle to fermenter. And my favorite arcade games growing up were the Pac-Man games.
    So combine Hopback with Pac-Man

    Mine has dual meaning.
    I buy and sell coins for a living and this is a user name I’ve used on coin forums for some time. Seemed natural to use it on pinball and arcade forums as it reads like a play on coindoor.

    That what Dad used to call me as a kid.

    #105 9 months ago

    I’m the youngest in my family by a lot and I was always able to talk my dad into letting us do crazy things. My siblings started calling me weasel out of jealousy but it became a term of endearment. When I went to get my first email account, weasel was already taken, so I became DaWezl. 35 years or so later, and I’m called “Weez” “Weasel” “DaWeez” or other variations almost as much as I get called by my first name.

    Indybru is what I use on the snowmobile forum.

    Indy stands for names of Polaris snowmobiles back in the late 90's that I owned. Indy 500, Indy trail, Indy Trail touring.
    Bru is short for my name Bruce.

    Side note now I own Ski Doo snowmobiles, but a Indy 500 pinball.

    I was the 98th person with the last name Brennan to attend Michigan State. They abbreviated the last name so everyone had the same number of characters in their email address.

    Simply a mash up of Time-Lord and Ass-Bandit.

    My friend used to mess up my last name when he was drunk and landed on this one. He passed away Christmas Eve 2010

    #110 9 months ago

    Back in the C64 days of dialup BBS action I had the handle SpaceAce as I really loved the arcade game back in the day. Eventually I got tired of people asking me if I was a fan of Kiss (I did not even know that was one of the band members names) so I changed it to TheHammerGod since I was a fan of Thor. When online services like Xbox Live started TheHammerGod was taken quickly by other people so I wanted something unique so I used a nickname my friend called me. He would add 'esamo" to the end of friends first names so he would say Jim-esamo, Tom-esamo and Matt-esamo. I dropped the second T so make it look better and have used it ever since.

    Bonzo for my favorite drummer John Bonham and 442 for my favorite car growing up, aka the cutlass kid back in the day

    #112 9 months ago

    My name comes from way back in the day of all of us having CB units in our cars! Hawkmoon was my handle, and is a hero from the paperback books of:Chronicles of Castle Brass:He was the main good guy that was always there,never seen or heard,hard core bad-ass!A volcano when harried by foes,swift in judgement of evil,untouched by blade,spear,or corruption!There is no avatar for the elusive Hawkmoon! He moves unseen,unheard,invisible in plain sight! If you scoff,just ask any body thats been to PAGG,CAX.or,GSPF in Lodi,like Aurich,no one knew I was there:)Peace!!!!

    I had a beautiful German Shepherd named Soda. She had lots of energy and jumped around like she was on crack most of the time. Years ago when I was creating a username for another forum she was jumping around next to me and I used Sodacrack for the username. I have been using it for usernames since.

    #114 9 months ago

    Mine comes from the movie Airplane!. Every time we hear the name Roger, we always say "Roger Roger". And Roger is not my real name.

    #115 9 months ago

    Cause it's what my parents named me better than 63 years ago.

    #116 9 months ago

    Super High-End Pinball Restoration Dude.... (not for hire )

    #117 9 months ago

    its my last name and I'm the man...

    #118 9 months ago

    I simply just had drunk too much Dark Rum the night I signed up here

    #119 9 months ago

    Got my original username banned a few years back one night. Believe there is a thread where I was very much asking the mods to ban me. Ended up coming back some time later and chose dung as a joke. Do love the people who point out my username as an insult though.

    Back in the day, I ran an ASCII Express on my Apple II, and everyone had cool pseudonyms in the cracking scene. I chose mine that went along with my Electric Company ASCII Express. Back then I was chugging along at 300bps.

    I sometimes wonder if anyone recognizes my avatar. But that's another thread...

    Did your old username start with a K by any chance?

    #123 9 months ago

    Alleycat is my callsign from my days as an Air Force pilot (play on my last name (Alicata) as well as my nights in the "alley" outside Incirlik AB, Turkey). I didn't want to be another Alleycatxx online and was living in Vegas, so....VegasAlleycat!

    #124 9 months ago

    PIN for pinball & BUM was my dogs name, so Pinbum it is.

    #125 9 months ago

    My username is stolen from that guy I see if I look in a mirror. Weird guy.

    I actually don't remember my actual Pinside signup process or why I chose to go full vanity on it. If I had it to do over I'd probably go with one of my more absurd online monikers. Gornkleschnitzer comes to mind. (Source: Made up at random to test a nonsense generator on a web site.)

    Yara Snow (see picture)

    shortened to Y Snow
    altered to WhySnow

    fun because nobody seems to know if it is "Why Snow?" or "Wise Now"

    I like words because I am dyslexic (in case you have not realized, I mess up typing lots of words... i often see them as correct spelling and brain and typin fingers dont link up; it is a weird thing but so am I)

    #129 9 months ago

    I had to come up with a name to use on XBox Live. I thought about it for 15 seconds. Basically just means a lover of vector arcade games.

    My avatar is a screenshot of my million point Star Castle (Vectrex) world record game - a score of zero with more than 10 ships in reserve.

    Good choice.. ass-lord !)

    #131 9 months ago

    While entering my own name on PlayStation network in 2007, I got denied over and over, so I entered “ scaffolding pipe” .. as that was in my window view while my roof was being replaced ..and offcourse got accepted right away.

    #132 9 months ago

    says 2 other adult males that collect and play pinball machines while also hanging out on an online pinball forum for a fun activity during the day, lol

    #133 9 months ago

    A combination of my first name, John, and my other hobby that takes all my money.......Toyota Land Cruisers.

    Didn't like the sound of "johncruiser" so made it "johnnycruzr"

    Currently own 3 Cruisers, at one time had 6.

    #134 9 months ago

    That reminds me of Cheech & Chong Up In Smoke when they are messin with Sgt. Stedenko

    #135 9 months ago

    No one would pronounce my last name correctly, Cosner, so everyone just called me COZ. It’s been my name for the last 25 years, to all my nieces and nephews, I’m uncle coz

    #136 9 months ago

    It's been my online name since the dawn of "online". Based on the name of my Chow-Chow...may he rest in peace!! Never felt the need to change it or create a new one.

    #137 9 months ago

    So back in college at Pitt I was partying at our house with my girlfriend, a stunningly attractive girl Brandy that was attending a stewardess school downtown. Two of her friends show up (Amber & Tara), and pull the old “can we see your room?”

    So all three of us go downstairs (my room was the entire basement), and next thing you know they ask my buddy Dave to leave, who sadly was sitting there by himself smoking a bong. After his dramatic exit, we indulged in a friendly game of cards, during which articles of clothing....well, the rest is history.

    Although a true story, coming up with my username was not nearly as exciting:

    Colson Derby III = colsond3

    Tried to go with my PinballOwners.com handle edflipperhands, but for some reason here it wouldn’t let me.

    #138 9 months ago
    Quoted from Whysnow:

    After meeting you in person I would never think the latter....

    #139 9 months ago
    Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

    Cause it's what my parents named me...

    Hey! Same here! Well....not really. But it's a good thing they didn't or they would have been pissed when that dang pac game thing came out!

    #140 9 months ago

    Sorry misread

    #141 9 months ago

    63? You don’t sound a day over 69 man.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    Did your old username start with a K by any chance?

    Funny thing is I cannot remember what my old username on here was. I searched the ones I used to use back in the day, but doesn't pull anything up. To answer your question, no I have never used one starting with a K.

    #143 9 months ago

    Inspired by the song High Protein by the band PIG.

    Quoted from dung:

    Seems you showed up about the time brokedad split, but I have an overwhelming feeling he split for good, so that can't be.

    I really like the name "dung" as it reminds me of reading old Mad magazines and Bandini mountain.

    #145 9 months ago
    Quoted from dung:

    I think he was making a joke, and referring to “that person of whom we do not speak.”

    Quoted from Colsond3:

    “that person of whom we do not speak.”

    "unless you are a member of the pinside staff hanging out with him at a pinball festival, of course"

    Quoted from o-din:

    "unless you are a member of the pinside staff hanging out with him at a pinball festival, of course"

    Hahahahahahahaha...Odiner. Always keepin it real.

    But he brought his Magic Girl so everybody could play it…oh wait, it’s an unplayable game.

    It was in Texas and that thread vanished like a fart in the wind after some clown posted a picture of those brokeback cowboys.

    #149 9 months ago

    I used to be a full time skydiver. Sky plus Rex which is Latin for King. So skyrex is sky king

    My last name is Heckendorn. But when I signed up for my first dot com in 2004 the much short "benheck.com" was available.

    Now everyone thinks that's my name.
