    Newbie Shield - Who knows why I chose my name?

    Does anyone have the beginning of a clue?

    What does "Newbie" mean? What does "Shield" mean?

    What does it mean if you put the two together?

    newbie = new, novice, inexperienced on computers or interneting

    Shield= protector, ?

    So you protect and help those who are new on computers or internet?

    I'm stumped =[

    I agree with Matt's speculation and offer the following as supporting evidence:

    The avatar of Yoda, the wise Jedi Grand Master wielding a light saber, is a symbolic clue. The peacekeeping Jedi use the "light side" (white hat) of the Force (potential) to achieve their objectives.

    In your posts you continually extoll members to use ethics, diligence and fair play in their online pursuits.

    I even see subtle esoteric and metaphysical principles wrapped up in all this, but that's a discussion for another time.

    How's that! [​IMG]

    I think it would have been less confusing if he just made his name MasterYoda [​IMG]

    Actually, I know what the name means - I was just goofing around with my "Darth Vader" comment. The name means that he's trying to protect newbies from scam artists.

    Anyone want to try and guess where my name comes from? There is a story behind it...

    Getagrip?? Usually this would be people losing it and having to get control again. I am no good at these name games though.

    Glad the thread got some responses.

    I thought it would be nice to know the meaning behind the names of various members.

    I bet that M5's name is a mom who lives on a mountain - specifically within Montana.

    Curious about A8ch. I would offer one guess: Pronounced "H", which is the first letter of his name - Hermas. Perhaps it's a jazz nickname?

    Getagrip: Though I know what "get a grip" usually means, I'm not sure how you came up with it as a forum name. I wish I had an intelligent guess for you.

    I would assume that Matt and Vishal are using their real names.

    Sunflower is usually associated with a cheerful personality.

    Mellin might be a nickname - short for Melissa.

    Well, in regards to my forum name:

    Matt (and Vishal) was close.

    Keith was nearly exact. Only thing he left out was as it pertains to online marketers though I assume he meant that.

    Hermas described it eloquently, well done as usual. Perhaps you understand it so well because you are a kindred spirit.

    Good guesses all.

    So, what do all the forum names mean?

    What fun. Yes, some names appear to be very straight-forward and others clever intimation. I was totally off on another plane when guessing the meaning behind "A8ch". In my mind it was pronounced "ache" and I was envisioning something dramatic like intense longing or a broken heart. Haha. Thanks for bringing me back to reality, Newbie Shield. Interesting what images a name can invoke.

    Although, I like to think of myself as having a cheerful personality my name belies an inherent trait to be incandescently influenced or luminescently leveraged (I think I just made up a few words here).

    Yes, living in Seattle can be a problem at times.
