    J is for James. Rocco is my middle name. 2021 is because 21 is my favorite number and Sealab 2021 is one of my favorite shows so with the one number I can reference both.

    This thread will most likely be nuked. unfortunate because a lot of members have interesting SN's and it would be cool to hear what's behind them. One of my favorites is LambicPentameter.

    Thank you. I try. Unfortunately the tank may go down because I might move to Ohio to go to OSU for graduate school. Not for sure yet though.

    Not necessarily... I moved it to the "Feedback & Help" forum from "Beer Talk"...let's keep it BEER/site-related and we'll see what happens.

    For what it's worth, my user name is the first one I ever created back in 1996 (ESPN Fantasy games). As a recent grad of Mississippi State (Bulldogs), I just picked that plus my age (25 at the time, so you do the math...). I was also a pretty big basketball fan and my favorite MSU player at the time was a #25, Erick Dampier. There you go - not beer related, but I'm in no mood to change it now. :slight_smile:

    Cheers,
    Brian/msubulldog25

    I wasn't trying to be cynical but I've seen threads like this before and they never stayed on track for very long. I hope it does stay around though I like hearing about the people that make up our community.

    Maybe to keep some beer-related content each new post could add a favorite beer style or similar :wink:. Just saying, we'll try to keep this unlocked for as long as possible (i.e. avoid "nuking") because I agree it's kinda fun to read some of the backgrounds for user names, especially the odd/obscure ones...

    Mine is for the Commodore 64, my first PC, it's what got me into computer geekery and it always seems beer makes programming that much better :sunglasses:

    I'm not good at coming up with screen names, I use a different one for every site I'm on, and since I usually join on the spur of the moment, I gotta come up with something. I like music, I like beer. I wish I had used caps though.

    I will say as I'm almost out of BAMC I should consider an avatar change...

    What about the beer that made you want to join BA and create the username. I know after I had been lurking on the sight for a while the beers of fame list lead me to find Belgian Red and I figured joining would lead me to find and try even more great brews which it has.
