    EDITED. Combined numbers 6 and 7 into one, as they were essentially the same thing. They are now in number 6. Also, that left number 7 empty, so I added a brand shiny new number 7.

    I thought I'd make a list of the 10 worst names of currently active members (inb4 someone says "Xuphor"). I define "Worst names" as names that basically show a complete lack of creativity at all. My results:
    Number 10
    Number 9
    Number 8
    Number 7
    Number 6
    Number 5
    Number 4
    Number 3
    Number 2
    And now....
    Number 1

    I strongly disagree with what you wrote in No.9's description. Now, don't get me wrong, the nick is terrible but Sonic Generations and Sonic Colours are great games, so your argument is pretty invalid.

    As of my own opinion on nicks, any nick containing a name of a well-known character from a video game, anime, manga, literature or film or the name of a video game console is terrible, they all belong in one basket and that basket is the No.1 spot on the list.

    Forgot about those 2 sonic games, but still, 2 good ones in ~15 newer sonic games over the years is a TERRIBLE ratio.

    Some video game charcter names can be ok, more of a "really lucky" ones. Nathan Drake for example, is a member here, and one that's been around a lot.
    Anime is bad though, that's why all Anime based names came at number 4 imo. I was debating swapping that one and number 2, but got lazy.

    Anything that has neko or inu... wait.. fuck.

    Also the sonic stuff is opinion since you need the portable titles, and unleashed was ok, and blah blah blah. Why do I even bring it up when it is literally all opinion and in the EOF, because internet.

    I'm close to number four... wait, actually, I meant to spell my username "DartzFifteenZero, the name isn't from any popular anime (or wanna guess?) it IS my actuall and real-life nickname, and my number isn't random either, it represents the age I started to surf the internet (15 years old) plus a Zero because it's my favorite character of the Megaman X and obviously Zero Series. Now I'm 21 and still using the same username in many forums and social pages.

    No, 6 & 8 fit me.

    You are now. See number 7. I'll add you in a second to the other. Same damn problem.

    EDIT: You're on it now, along with _kbnft, in number 7.

    This isn't 4chan.

    Also, saying you're a legend and a master are essentially the same thing, both fit under number 10. MarioBros and MasterHand, check the edited number 6, both fit perfectly.
    And as I said in the op, this is usernames that show no creativity at all. Xuphor, Gahars, Veho, Tom Bombadildo, and the like might not mean anything, but at least they can be pronounced, and some thought was given to them.

    @_kbnft, You're online right now. You're active. All "active" means on forums is that they have logged in somewhat recently. I'd call "right now" VERY recent.

    You forgot "people that name themselves after companies" like Sony305982 or Nintendoman4309658 or Veho.

    Does it have to be well known? I would have thought an obscure character from a well known game would have been worse.

    Also what about if a name just happens to match a popular entity or indeed was the name of another entity before it got usurped (see something like jumpman). Of course I am perfectly happy with a judgement of tough shit but you possibly want to clarify your position there.
