Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What was the very first username you ever had on the internet?

-Inverse Insomniac

A:

Dear II,

My very first email address was ferrari@[randomdomain]. Like Tipperary, I also had a LEGO.com account at some point, but I don't remember if that was before or after the email address.

-The Entomophagist

A:

Dear Reverse,

My first online account ever was for LEGO.com because it had this really cool racing game you needed an account for. My account name was (first name)(Bionicle) because Bionicles were clearly the coolest LEGO sets. Like other writers I didn’t get a professional sounding email until applying for colleges and stuff.

Peace,

Tipperary

Dear II,

My first email address was soccerbeast****17 (name has been edited out for security reasons), due to my love of soccer. Unfortunately, it was annoyingly long, so I changed it shortly after that.

Dear sleeper, 

My mom was terrified of her kids using their real names/pictures on the internet, so when I was 12-ish and needed to get an email, she forbade me from using my real name. So I used two names of my favorite characters from my favorite books (hint: Tamora Pierce). I still use that as my personal email, though I did get a fancy one with my real name when I was 17 and applying for colleges.

Dear you,

May or may not be my very first, but my Neopets account is pretty old at this point (although maybe not as old as Mico's) and the username on that is [Flower][Gem][Numbers]. It's cheesy and girly and the password had to do with a unicorn.

Rock on, younger me. Rock on.

Dear Inverse,

My first email address was bubblys, because bubbly was my favorite word, and a weird nickname my siblings used for me started with S. Unfortunately, this lead to everyone believing I was trying to spell "bubbles" or "bubblies" and just didn't know how to spell.
