Post Name dirivation.
Alright, this game is about breaking down a person's name to how they came up with it, much like the thread that CTCMJH had made a long while back about figuring out why his username is what it is(I was just reading stuff that seemed fun.), except most of our usernames aren't acronyms, so we'll need to break it down into parts. We will continue with one person's name until it's down to its base before continuing to avoid confusion on who's username contains what bits.

The rules for guessing are simple.
1. NO DOUBLE POSTING! (I want the only exception to this ACTUAL forum rule to be when people don't guess for five days.)
2. NO GIVING MORE THAN ONE GUESS PER POST!
3. DON'T BE ABSURD WITH YOUR GUESSES, IT MIGHT BE FUNNY TO YOU, BUT SOME PEOPLE WILL TAKE OFFENSE.

The rules for having people figure out how you got your username.
1. YOU HAVE TO SAY HOW MANY BITS ARE OF YOUR USERNAME!
2. YOU NEED TO ACTUALLY HAVE SOME KIND OF REASON FOR WHY YOUR USERNAME IS WHAT IT IS!
3. YOU NEED TO HAVE PARTICIPATED IN AT LEAST THREE WHEN YOU WANT PEOPLE TO BREAK YOUR USERNAME DOWN! (Will be applied after round 5.)
4. YOU HAVE TO BE HONEST! NO SAYING THAT IT'S WRONG WHEN THEY ARE RIGHT! IF THE BIT OF YOUR USERNAME THAT HAS EVERYONE STUMPED HAS NO GUESSED IN FIVE DAYS, YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE ANSWER.

(optional)
You can tell the forums what level of absurdity you're okay with when people guess.
\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
Since this is the first post, you must break down my username, now have fun.

I AM OKAY WITH SERIOUSLY ABSURD GUESSES. BE AS WEIRD AND RANDOM WITH THEM AS YOU WISH!

Three bits.

I guess I didn't make the game clear enough. *edits original post*

You're wrong by the way.
Although I love the thought.

your name is leaf, or you ARE a leaf, and you are a person of "lawl," or laughs. in short, you are leaf and you are humorous.

Jimmy: I've actually not read any of the Warriors books, so I wouldn't know the first thing about that.
Psykeout: While you are far from correct on the "leaf" part, you have come close on the "lawl", and have got the "o" part of it perfectly.
Tattorack: while you name completes the name stairs, Your guess is more like a joke of my username. SWEET!

Tats: If I knew how to program stuff, I'd prolly be able to understand Frooxius a lot better.
Brent: Princess Leia... that sounds familliar... are you talking about star wars? it's the only thing I can think of that has a princess who's name I don't know. I never really found star wars entertaining.
Anyways, you're both wrong.

ESPECIALLY YOU BRENT! BEND MY USERNAME! PFFFFEEEH!

I banged my head a few times on something solid and came up with this:
Lea, as in a other way to write "Lee", Fol, short for "fool", awl as in "all".

You are Quite funny, and you enjoy leaves because they can fly and float, much like you wanted to do when you were a child

Post Re: Name dirivation.
Leaf, perhaps, because you like to be random, or because autumn is your favorite season, and 'o' as in 'of,' and lawl because you love a good laugh and are a joker of sorts?

Not of these answers are correct so far, so keep on trying.

If I don't have a correct answer by Friday this week, I'll give you my first bit.

Well I can guess that olawl basically means 'of laugh out loud'. The only part that truly baffles me is 'leaf'. Perhaps it was the name of some pet, or you have a particular fondness of electric cars?
Or heck, maybe you just like, saw a leaf while you were conjuring up your username from your insane mind.

This is probably one of the funniest guesses I've had.
Still wrong though.

Maybe because you have been on the forums before you became a member, then came up with a random name like "Leafolawl" just so you could make a game in which we try to guess what you made your name "Leafolawl" for.

Okay, that is probably in the best three answers to be given. XD
Still wrong though.

Since it's Friday, you have the rest of today to figure it out from my timezone, meaning you have 21 hours left. XD
Totally impossible.

Alright, later than I said it would be, but here is the first bit.
Leaf-o was originally supposed to act as a shortened form of Leafeon, my favorite Pokemon.
Eventually I thought the "o" could have a better use, and so "Leaf" became not only the link to my favorite Pokemon, but also my favorite element from the four basics.

Sounds like you're a fan of aircraft of all sorts, so you came up with a name that you'd like should you ever become a pilot for a jet or plane.

But it sounds more like the name of a fighter-jet's pilot, so you also have an attraction to excitement.

Tiger: To represent bravery, or fierceness.
Stryk: To Tell of your speed, or cunning.
