    I originally had an account named "minime" and I used that because it was my nickname at the time. Then that account got hacked and I thought I was smart by proving I was the real "minime" so I chose "therealminime" as my new user name and now I kinda hate it

    I had an idea a long time ago for a web comic about a group of robots that defended the world from different threats. Kind of a combination of Transformers and Power Rangers. The main character was to be a robot based off a toy I purchased at Cracker Barrel. His name was Roboticlus Prime, a robot that could transform into anything mechanical or animal. I thought the name sounded cool when I first joined so I stuck with it.

    Also, FYI, I have not changed my profile picture since I was able to have one on this site. No joke.

    It was an OC I made. I'm actually kind of sad I put it online, because now anyone can take my name for themselves.

    Back in 2014, I made an account called Fluffy. It was named after my OC which was a cat that was named Fluffy.

    Then, in the summer of 2015, within four months of starting to post on the forums, Fluffy got hacked. At that time, every single one of my accounts had the same password. I had given away an account without changing the password because I was very smart.

    After Fluffy was hacked, I made a new account called Fluffy2, which didnโ€™t last long before being hacked as well because my incredibly smart brain decided to use the exact same password that had gotten me hacked the first time.

    Then, I made Etini, which was named after some character in a game. I chose the username because I thought it sounded cool. Then, half a year later, this account got hacked too. I actually donโ€™t know how that one happened, but I think I was still using terrible passwords until fairly recently.

    So after that, I made a new account called FluffyEtini, which was a combination of the previous two accounts.

    Then, around a year ago, I made another account called Just_Fluffy. The name was supposed to be about how I am returning to be Fluffy again or something like that.

    Itโ€™s really weird now that I think about it. I feel like many people on GTQ have only one main account that they have had for many years, while I have had many accounts that were my main account at some point.
