    Wew! I did not see that coming. xD
    Here it goes......

    It all started on @Ruby G. 's thread, Introducing Thread of the Week my system assigned username back in 2018 was YASHPLUSONE. it kept the clock ticking until I saw a screenshot posted by @Tobikage
    960619-5f2a5874cb856bb32725414534c45922__01.png
    I realised that my username in ALL CAPS was both huge and ugly. I decided to change it to something that is both short simple and effective.
    I chose YRJ instead. I would have gone shorter but 3 characters are a must :p

    The best part about my username is that it has my first, middle and last name. All in 3 characters. I initially planned for lower case but it didn't look quite good :D :p

    My OnePlus given name was the cool X1552314745231, I was happy and proud of it, it had everything, (deep down I still identify as X1552314745231), but it was actually to AWESOME for the rest of the Community, they are only humans after all, so, one day, I decided to do the ultimate sacrifice, caved in to popular demand, and change it :) , one of the criticism of the majestic X1552314745231, was that is was ... to Impersonal, I liked it, since I found it very ironic (you know changing a username that was considered impersonal to actually Impersonal .. I like explaining dad jokes ;) ), also it could be seen as a play on words, since by the nature of Internet username conventions, you never know if it's Impersonal or its I'm personal spelled together (Impersonal) only on the internet could something mean either something or the exact opposite of it, even if it's form is the same.... So my username is actually a product of the Community itself , for the Community, and in the Community ;)... A happy accident, same as we all

    Ps: One day our robot masters and overlords will take over the world and will make us use names that they find worthy, so I hope I will once aggain be called X1552314745231

    Pss: @YRJ why is this in "contests" ?:cool: this would have been a awesome
    WFT or CUBE article ... Just saying, although I would like a new bookmark, am actually a avid reader myself, I use a (very greasy and dirty) 1$ bill for the job..

    Psss: the users that I want to see more often in the OnePlus Community are @Pete and @Carl o_O

    Mine is based on Sweden and the term Juggalo.

    Juggalo is male term of fans of Insane Clown Posse. Back then I got really hocked on the album The great Milenko. Especially a song like Piggy Pie. The style interested me and while I still can listen on some of their music their peak was at Great Milenko album and a few more. Still offered some good songs after that but my interest has faded since then. I'm more of a mixed fan of different high quality bands like Epica, James Blake, Ayreon, Lindsey Stirling, Meaghan Smith, Arch Enemy... Well anything basically with a certain touch of quality according to me. Even classical snd neo classical can fit me.

    Swejuggalo will stick forever [e]1f609[/e]

    I witnessed your naming ceremony @Impersonal xD
    I do get your point, but since there are prizes involved it only makes sense to post this in the Contest subforum.

    All the best, I hope you can replace your $1 bill ;)

    :) Yeah, I'm sure @Trista W. will still consider, this awesome thread, in your yearly count ;), it's a great thread
    As for the $ bill it has actually a fun story, I found it in a used book I bought at my local public library clearence, a book that actually cost me around ⅓ of a $, the book was "The Grapes of Wrath" a book set in the Great Depression era , ;), but as we speak is in deplorable condition, alongside dirt and greace you cand find gravy, beer, coffee, milk, and some other unidentifiable gunk
