Simple question, What made you sign up to Gamespot with that username?

When I first signed up for an Xbox Live account it offered me it as a Gamertag and I've stuck with it ever since. :)

I use it for pretty much everything, Gamespot, my email account and whatever random website account I need to create.

Another question, do you regret it? If so, why?

nitsud is my name backwards (old gamertag but no one could pronounce it) and the 19 is either because I was nineteen when I joined the site or because of Steve Yzerman.

I'm surprised Gamespot doesn't have a feature for changing your username.

It's essentially a nickname of mine with my favorite numbers after it.

I kind of regret only because I imagine everyone pronounces it like the the word 'then' with an 's' on the end.

Jedi because I'm a Star Wars fan. XMan comes from the fact that I like the X-Men and I'm a fan of the character X-Man (Nate Grey). The 7 is because, for some reason, I couldn't pick just JediXMan - or else I would have.

I was given the nickname "chaos" at the nightclub where I used to work; I made "xaos" my first commercial email address circa 1995 or 96 (which I still have) and use it for user IDs wherever possible.

Being a spazz is actually the opposite of my personality, I'm extremely laid back. (I didn't really randomly hit the keyboard, my name was planned)

I'm a Miss (as opposed to a Mrs or a Mr) and I work in a library. Rather dull really, but it's not a username I use exclusively for GS.

I don't regret it, I still quite like it actually. :)

When you see them and you think of sweaty men that's a problem of its own, I view them as a separate person just like how you don't think of your partners dad/mother when you look at them.

Anyways quite a few women draw anime/manga, for example the character in my signature/avatar was drawn by a female.
