The name 'tepples' was generated randomly in 2002 with the aid of a Scheme program when I wanted to leave behind a confusing username that my college had generated for me. But I have since learned that Dutch speakers see it and giggle at the resemblance to their word for what mammals have but boobies and tits don't. It'd be like a mom naming her daughter Areola, thinking it's a variant of Ariel. Nor do I vant to suck your anything. Ruling out clanging to a brand of toys that inspired one of my fictional races is another part of it. So is putting the Bumpity-whatever incident and LOCKJAW Tetromino Game behind me.

Lately when I've signed up for other sites, I've been using either my birth name or some variant on "Pino". More to come.

Wow, I never knew you are the same person as PinoBatch. You should use your legless avatar here. (sorry for the 5 year bump, didn't realize that either...)

His humor style is very specific and should have give you a hint. With years of experience on nesdev it's easy recognize it :lol:

It is strange, I take tepples pretty serious and PinoBatch as a goofy clown, but of course both very knowledgeable. NEVER I guessed that was the same person. I guess I rely too much on visual cues.

My first guess is that I come off as serious in an asynchronous medium, such as forums and issue trackers, and as goofy in a synchronous medium, such as IRC or Discord. (For what these mean, see "Why Slack is inappropriate for open source communications" by Dave Cheney.)

Could someone change my name to niconii to avoid potential confusion with Nicole Express?

Can I change my username to Quorra? Nathonion is based off of my old name. If not Quorra (in case it's taken) then quorrafromtron.
