    The origin of my nickname:
    Michael "Mike" Bonanno is the alias of Igor Vamos, who (along with Jacques Servin) is leading member on culture-jamming and anti-consumerism activist group "The Yes Men", which practices "identity correction" on dishonest corporations and tries to make their real life actions to correspond their public image.
    I liked the symbolism of "identity correction" as I'm trying to correct myself to correspond the image I have from myself.
     
  2. Hannah II

    Hannah II Fapstronaut

    I chose my nickname because it's one of my favourite girl's names. When I was younger and still had the desire to have children, I was dreaming of having two daughters, one of which I would have named Hannah.

    I chose Semaphore becasue of the poem https://www.poemhunter.com/poem/not-waving-but-drowning/
    I saw my addiction as being something that i viewed one way and others thought of quite differently. I could not convey what was going on and they could not understand. NoFap has in fact been the one place where I have managed to engage in dialogue with others who have the same condition.

    RainbowShell Fapstronaut

    Well one of my favorite games of all time is Chrono Trigger, so I took my name from there. The Rainbow shell is something you can find in the game, pretty big plot item.

    I JUST THOUGHT IT WAS COOL, AND AS AN ASTRONAUT EXPLORING A WHOLE NEW WORLD. THAT IS PRECISELY ANALOGOUS TO ALL OF OUR JOURNEYS HERE ON NOFAP. WE ARE TRAVELING ON A VOYAGE, EXPLORING SPACE DISCOVERING A WORLD WE NEVER KNEW EXISTED! I JUST DEFINED IT AND..... a magical or charismatic quality or feeling. SPOT ON!

    It was just basically a bit of a spin on a movie character name, and i often been referred to as "The Silent One". The 313 part, I'm sure that is easy enough to figure out.

    I always saw the numbers in your name but never actually read them out to realize the song reference! In my head I just read your username as [email protected]

    Nasergy is my username.... well not anymore soon as I have requested for a username change, my new username is Nasagy. I have no idea why I called myself that. It isn't my nickname but a random name I had to come up with quick when making this account. I got the first half of the username from my name and the other half from energy.
    I chose NASA because of NASA space program, They deal with spaceship and I thought of this as I want to shoot up like a spaceship during my 90 days of nofab. Energy because, you need mental energy to rewire your brain.

    Mine is intentionally esoteric. That's the meaning, btw, not a troll.

    lantti Fapstronaut

    I used this name while playing runescape, about ten years ago. I used to play it lot. Back in the days I would skip porn and food to mine coal ore and kill players in wilderness, and play the damn game all night long even in secret while being great in school without any effort.
