Hello, all!

Today I bring to you the first of what I'm sure will be many "general discussion" topics, this particular one asking what your display name is and why you chose it.

So, answer the question already! :P

As for myself, I am the knight champion of Codrex Magna. That's the reason for my current one. Next!

Hrmn.

I'm the knight, you bumbling fool.

He has a point. ~M Don't think I didn't see what you did there, you horribly incomprehensible little man. You didn't even get the color or signoff right, and I wouldn't say something like that. --Maestro

But enough of that!

Artemis Centauri!

From The Spector's Last Dance comes the cheerful, considerate, and spam-burning archon!

Known for his kind decisions and the liberation of the COT Subforum ((2011)), 'Arty' has been one of the top-notch archons on BAW ((And to a lesser degree CM {I'll say. We actually have higher-quality people -like you- here, unlike there. :P})), and since the disappearance of Aneroth (2010 (Even though he came back)), has been nominated several times to take lead of the site.

He enjoys going around-without armor-in COT, which, for all means and purposes, is his birthplace.

An unknown actor-Possibly the Archon himself-is playing Artemis Centauri in The Spector's Last Dance, one of the top rated plays of the century.

Sure it's the reason behind the name, but what's the reason for the name?

Not exactly.

The good news is, can explain my username and wilds Specters in one swoop.

A "Specter" is an internet slang term commonly used by the Specters themselves, something I learned at the same time I learned many hacks from Proffesor James Peirce, my mentor (and possibly the cause of the dataclysm), who was a Spector himself. not knowing it, Artemis, you are in fact a Spector. Let me explain;

A "Specter" is, as I said before, a slang term. It discribes 1) A member who broke the rules but has not yet been banned, or 2) A member who has been banned but, for whatever reason, is still active.

One reason is that many members, such as almost evryone here, also have accounts on other websites. BZPower, BAW, Devient Art, Brickshelf, Youtube... anything that requires a username and password. A person banned from one of these sites (such as Arty on BZP) but still active on another (such as Arty here and on BAW) is technically a Specter. Of course, only technically. Most of the time, it only applies to similar sites, such as two video sites or two BIONICLE forums.

The other reason a banned member can still be active is, obviously, hacking. Like the Banned Administrator from "Corrupted" and "The Spector's Last Dance", they are technically banned but still danc around right under admins like Kex and Aneroth's nose.

Although I should technically be banned for all the stuff you REALLY don't want to hear about on BZP, I'm not. In addition, while I should be banned on BZP, I'm still active here on Codrex Magna. And, finally, if my plan goes though, I will soon be banned on BAW but stilll active via a certain hack involving passwords duplication and dup accounts.

Therefore, I am, by all or most defenitions of the word, a Specter. Combine that with BIONICLE? The Spectral Mask.

Ah.

Confusing, but comprehensible.

Of course, there was a Spectral Mask specifically in BIONICLE, but obviously it's been combined with the rest of what you said above to form your identity.

Well, yes, the Spectral Mask was the only suitable character.

There are other slang terms for would-be-bannishment, starting with 31337, or "eleet".

The name of Wally Gudmunzsun is taken from the videogame Centipede, in which he is the main character.

Actually, it is... I'd recommend it, if you ever want a new videogame or something. Plus, if it inspired my display name, then it has to be good. :P

Only in that way, though, mostly.

Now for this display name of yours. You've changed it from Takadox to Artemis Centauri to Artemis Cretauri.

Artemis Centauri was the second, better cut name.

Artemis CREtauri is in the epic.

I hope not all those days are behind us. It had its moments... I'm still active on there to keep in touch with the people who aren't on other sites.

Ah, that's true, that's true.
And yes.

For example, I had to murder Jonas Faulker and then steal his wallet to get that name.

Yes, it does, but "Wally" isn't in that form in my username, just as its initialized "W".

And I get the reason for your username, I believe, though I haven't read the books.

Or you could explain your knew Username.

Speaking of which, isn't Maestro like, someone who conducts an orcastra or something?

A maestro is the head of an orchestra, true, but I believe it meant "master" in Italian (correct me if that's the wrong language). It was also an old term for a northwesterly wind.
