In case of confusion, this is my new nick

I doubt anybody really cares but in case anyone's confused, I was ZomCoder, then Zero, now Gradualore. I have no intention of changing the name again.

Regards,
-Gradualore :D

Yeah, this is confusing. I can understand one name change, but two in such a short period just shows how indecisive you are. :roll:

I suffer from having rather intense manias about various things; the original mania being that I wanted to eradicate "ZomCoder" from existence; perhaps I was too eager to do so. No more changes...I promise :D

Yeah I'm glad I happened to get take out so I could end up with peppers.

I added the s to the end myself because I'm creative.

I haven't changed my username since 1998.

I prefer to be obscure due to having done nothing, rather than due to having an identity crisis, but that's merely personal preference.

I have no clue what you've contributed, and I'm very much too lazy to go look it up at the moment.

Enjoy your new name.

Im not. :P

I've stuck with my name ever since AIM accepted it. I've recently been using my real name more often now. :?

What a coincidence. Someone else out there had the same name!

by on (#52915)
ZomCoder was a nice name. Zero was too generic/common and I don't know what to think of Gradualore. I was afraid to compliment your first username though, thinking that you might suddenly decide to change back to it! XD

by on (#52924)
It's all just silliness anyway. Nobody knows who I am =). My new name reflects my philosophy for getting projects done: gradually (inspired by Ivan Pavlov). Plus it sounds like some kind of wizard, which is my avatar.

Nice, I was thinking of changing my nick too when my name started appearing in urbandictionary and such. Too bad I've use this name for so long it kind of became my identity online.

I randomly generated my nick in 2002 using a Scheme program when I was looking for a way to put "yerricde" (the nick that my college assigned me) behind me.

by on (#52932)
How could you randomly generate it without it sounding like fifqh042hoh ?

And it sounds like actual Dracula's name, Vlad Teppes (at one letter of difference) which of course suits you well :p

The fiction on my user page on Uncyclopedia has more than a little truth to it.
  1. Learn a programming language. I had recently learned Scheme for a college course, and my brain was busy reorganizing itself to think in terms of composing functions rather than the explicit iteration of C. (It paid off when I later learned Python generator expressions and SQL, which act functionally.)
  2. Learn about conlangs.
  3. Find a set of names. I chose as my model a set of character names from a web site about children's music.
  4. Create a formal grammar incorporating phonotactic rules that fit that set of names. Some of the production rules will resemble "choose a consonant from column A and a vowel from column B." (I'm in the mood to help you dude...)
  5. Translate those rules into a programming language.
  6. Run the program a few times and pick one of the results.

Incidentally, another name that the same program could have spit out was BumpityBoo.

Me? I've never been to Cisylvania let alone Transylvania, and I get too much sun to be a vampire.

Like you never heard of the new cool vampires from Twilight, who simply glow in the sun... :shock:

Anyway, I just picked my username from a disliked and not well known anime character (which meant not many people would be using the name).

I don't think I ever met anyone with Asperger syndrome before. I've read about it, but I can't really understand it. It does look like you are mocking the kid though, with the hats and all.

About nicks, when I was a kid, I was trying to find a nickname for my character in Wings commander (we had a 286 at the time and it was slow but that's another story ;)). I didn't know much english and wanted one fast so I ended up with Darkness. That's was not very original but I stayed a few years with it on BBS (you know, the one with modems and 2400 baud things). I stopped using it after a while, maybe after college.

When I decided to make an account on nesdev, I didn't know what to use. Since I knew english a lot more then when I was a kid, I knew that I shouldn't use my previous one since it was too generic. I wanted something different that nobody use. So I took one Japanese word and checked about it. Nobody seems to use so this is how I ended up with mine. The kanji for the word are 晩酌. For the ones that don't want to make the effort to check in the dictionary, the first kanji is for evening, the second one is the sound of pouring alcohol or pouring someone alcohol which mean "Evening drink" ;)

I have two nicks: ~J-@Ð!~ and Jarhmander (and even Jarhmnder on #nesdev because it's too long)
The first one is from my unusual first name James-Adam, and the second one originated when some of my friend playeds with my initials... That's why it sounds like a pokémon.

EDIT: tepples, I would be happy to look at your name generator. :)

I was about as uncreative as it gets. I was Gandalf all the way through the 300baud CompuServe days on C=64, and the 1200/2400 then blazing fast 14,400 C= Amiga days.

Those were the days...I was obsessed with Psygnosis' logo and made a perty darn cool Gandalf logo themed the same way. I really should dig that back up...might make a cool avatar.

I guess my uncreativity continues...my usual nicks are my name with _'s or...in this case...the name of my never-to-be-finished-but-forever-to-be-worked-on tool.

You know tepples, its quite possible that this kid is not actually that much of a little gay wad in real life and he is just putting on an act. Perhaps queery little kid is just a role he plays.

Others had suggested that J. Fred Wilson was faking it like a more famous Fred, but I wasn't sure until BumpityBoo's vlog #36 about misinterpreting the sexualized lyrics of this decade's popular music.

That said, I completed two of the phonotactic models in this Scheme program. They return a linked list of phonemes. (I now prefer Python.)

What happened to him? Did he suddenly become asian? He's acting and talking completely different. The first few vlogs were pretty believable, but this sudden change makes me believe he got too carried away with the acting.

That only convinces me further that it may be an act.

If his mother trying to listen to NPR and accidentally turned on some Lady Gaga, wouldn't you expect her to just change the station rather than listening to the whole thing including the station call, artist and song title? I would surmise that his mother would be especially protective and do her best to keep her son from being exposed to sexual lyrics such as those.

Watching the first compared to more recent ones, he has certainly played up his vocalization and enunciation as time has gone on. To me that shows knowledge that he is annoying/bothering other people and he wants to push it further.

It does seem possible that he might be diagnosed with something like Aspergers, though. I would agree with the theory that he has an older, meaner sibling who is forcing him to read these scripts.

BumpityBoo hasn't posted in over a year. He stopped after his voice had changed.

But back to topic: Perhaps a name change that's more "gradual" might be acceptable.

GradualGames (formerly Gradualore) wrote:
Both Gradualore and Gradual Games refer to my self-affirming the concept of "gradualness" in hobby game development. GradualGames is similar enough to the old name that it should be recognizeable. Plus, I want more people to associate Nomolos with the name Gradual Games, so there is less confusion. I'm trying to consolidate my name to GradualGames permanently.

Sorry...couldn't resist:

"From now on, I want you all to call me...Loretta!"

by on (#90123)
I don't know where that comes from, but it reminded me of this:

"From this day forward, you will all refer to me by the name... Betty!" (Master Pain)

EDIT: Oh, I remember the Loretta quote now! =)

My first name here was "ZomCoder," a name I had as a teenager. That name carries with it a painful history of failed projects and epic forum battles that ended up ruining my pride and love of programming. After years of healing and pursuing something else, I got into nes dev, and just called myself ZomCoder cause that's what I used to be called. But the memories started flooding back, and name changing chaos ensued. Then I settled on the word "gradual" being a basis of my name. Now that I'm on a rather solid path of creating homebrew games for others to play, I want to be recognized mainly for my "company," GradualGames. I don't anticipate any further changes :D
