My username is based on that of Emil Castagnier, the main protagonist in Tales of Symphonia, Dawn of the New World. Admitably I'm kinda like Emil myself.

My username is a combination of my name, which is Donatello's weapon, an alternate name for Donatello's weapon, and Leonardo's weapon (my favorite ninja turtle). I think it would be cool to have a bo that contained a sword in it, kinda like Setsuka's weapon from Soul Calibur III and IV. Also, it is my gamertag on the 360.

I picked GroundhogDay because of the date, and because the forums keep getting deleted in a cycle that just keeps on.....cycling.

I used to be Number 13 by the way, not that I ever posted much.

Back when I started using my first computer (sometime in my early teens), I was actively playing Tales of Symphonia. The moment I was faced with creating a username, I chose to use "Latheon" after Symphonia's Latheon Gorge, which was the canyon I was oh-so-vigorously trying to traverse.

But, I decided "Latheon" wasn't wordy enough, so I screwed around with the words "Tales of" and "game" (my favorite series) to eventually construct "LGameTales" (with "Latheon" being abbreviated to the "L"), which I favored over the others because it looked and sounded the best.

PostSubject: Re: The story behind your username?   Sun 2 Feb - 15:11

The origin of my own username can be traced back to one sunny afternoon in a hot classroom many years ago, when someone was jotting down notes about Shakespeare's The Tempest, and accidentially spelled "Silvius" as "Slivius". He liked the name so much he decided to keep the error in his notes consistently, and from that moment on the name nestled deep within his heart.

As a result, I am now known as Slivius on most of the internet (but not on Twitter nor Skype, someone beat me to the punch).

My current username Slivendiferious is the brainchild of the magnificent Tenshigami. He used it in the name of my birthday topic last year, and I've been using it every now and again ever since.

I'm not too sure. It certainly has something to do with demons bringing destruction... and stuff.

99% of my other names on the Internet begins with the prefix "Doom".

Cause Venom was taken on some forums, and because when I was in aircraft mechanic school someone called me Mr Nukes due to my fascination with things that go BOOM.
Maybe I should go back to just Venom, since I don't think it is taken here...

PostSubject: Re: The story behind your username?   Sun 2 Feb - 17:36

Around... 2003 or so I think it was, I was working on translating a NES game into English, mostly to prove to myself that I could do it. I formed a translation "group" of sorts that I called Tenshigami Translations using the Japanese words "tenshi" (angel) and "kami" (god) which had some significance in the plot of the game I was working on. But never actually managed to get any volunteers to help with what I was working on. Eventually I gave up on the project only to give it another try later in like 2006.

When I was working on the project in 2006 I decided to take on the name "Tenshigami" myself, because there was never a translation "group" in the first place. And I've been using that name ever since. I used various different usernames around the net for years before that, but this was the first time I picked something and decided to stick with it.

The game I was working on translating turned out to be too much for me  - I could insert an English script up to a point but there were technical limitations with the game itself that made continuing the project impossible. Specifically there wasn't any room to insert a compression method into the game's text routine, so there would never be enough room in the game to store all the translated text, which would be much larger than the Japanese script.

So I dropped that game and later started a different translation project and did eventually finish that one. It's out there if you look but I am not really all that proud of its quality. I had very limited knowledge of Japanese and I did the entire project on my own with minimal help. Also the game itself is terrible.

But it's something I managed to do, not knowing whether I could even accomplish the goal. And of that at least, I am proud.

So there we go. That's the origin of my forum name and why I try to keep it consistent across everything now (PSN, Skype, steam, etc.)

My middle name and a popular nickname due to my first name is Shiv, the KH represents Kingdom Hearts, I've used that username everywhere since forever, I just never changed it ;p on the original forums I had decided to change things up that day, but I couldn't think of anything, so I chose just a smiley face hence Shiv:) ;p

The only other username I've ever used was the account I made on KHInsiders when I was very young, The_Dream_Shield, I do like the name and all but its kind of long xD It does make me feel more normal though, every other username is my actual name (which is literally never taken) or my actual middle name ;p

I legitimately always thought your username meant you were from Texas
