What does your callsign mean to you?

Post by Zehra » Tue Jan 19, 2016 8:50 pm

Almost all of us have a hidden meaning within our callsigns (including me).
It would be nice for all to share what is that hidden meaning with the bzflag community.
Those who are critical of me, I'll likely be the same of them. ~Zehra
There's always something to remember and it's been a game I love. ~Zehra
The time spent is a time which can never be regained, so it's a time to enjoy. ~Zehra
The decisions we make are the ones we look forward too and the ones we regret. ~Zehra
There's a difference between knowing my name and knowing me, one shows respect to my name and the other is to who I am. ~Zehra

I use kaadmy because...

I used kaadmy as my Khan Academy account, because it had several puns in it.

I didn't bother thinking of another name ;)

Knock is my Nick for over 30yrs. A classmate gave it to me.
