    Whats the story with your username?

    I see a lot of interesting user names on this forum, some of them are pretty straight forward - but I want to know - why did you pick your username? what does it mean?

    I picked mine because I didn't have a band name yet and I had just made a website for the arcade games I had been building.... so Arcade KO is what I picked for a username.

    Mine is my real name, because when I joined ten years ago, I didn't know any better.

    Lol. That sucks. All this time I just called you Arka-Dekko in my head. Now it's ruined.

    I think I just wanted something to do with guitar, but I didn't want something gay like "guitarplayer4327" or something so I went with the slightly less-gayer "guitaristic"!

    I did too! Then I saw his website and was like "Ohhhhh." But I still say in my head the original way!

    well I usually say it as all one word like Arcade-Deco - I like Arca Dekko better though LOL - I think I will start pronouncing it like that... Hell that would work for a band name

    I was going to ask this question soon so here may be a good place, if not, I'll start a new thread.

    People go through the task of having a user name that isn't their real name for what ever reason and through correspondence you find out their real name.

    Is it proper then to call them by their real name or the alias user name they have chosen?

    Any mic you buy will be perfectly suited to your needs, until you use it long enough to learn that it's not.

    Back to Arca () Dekko's question ..... MoreSound is the name of my live sound company and I think enough people call me Henry to figure out my real birth name .
