Bickaxe is frequently known as Bickie, and I've met him on several occasions. People probably call him Bickie as much as his real name. :lol:

Whenever I'm around DW fans, I've never responded to my real name until they've said it several times, each louder than the previous :D

Both pooh & me were known as pooh and Dotsie at the con. Pooh suits him better somehow :?

Obviously Jan & Sjoerd were Jan & Sjoerd.

When I had a social life (I spend most of my time at home, when not at work), I was often referred to as Bouncy or Bounce.

I still sign some Christmas Cards in that name(s).
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

FINALLY! A thread were I can ask: HOW is Sjoerd pronounced?

My name gets me in trouble... I have friends in real life who I have met off the net who call me Del. I have one sister who calls me Del (D'Lora) BUT I also have another sister who's name is Del (Her real name is apostrophised and she hated it so changed her name to Del as a teen... I have more rights to Del dammit!)

SO I get D'Lora mostly, Del from some including my sister UNLESS I am in the company of my other sister Del when I am called D'Lora by all... except those who have met me as Del and who refuse to change even if my sister Del is there ... :?

:D :D :D Bickie :D :D :D I mena BICKAXE!!!!! sounds so... kill maim tough..... but BICKIE? :D :D tea and scones with your gran on a sunday afternoon :D

Sjoerd is pronounced as a combination of the words 'shoe' and 'weird'.

Draw your own conclusions from that :)

I have been called Pooh since I was a kid. My friends in the UK from school still call me Pooh. When I was 21 and went to uni I became a Mike. It's only since joining this forum that I've reverted back to Pooh. That's why it suits me better. 8)
