How Did Your Username ?

tropsical joined in November 2013 and was permabanned by Craptasket for advertising in his first post.[1] After the ban was reduced to 1 day, he continued to post and came to widespread attention in January 2014 when he posted the fast thread "How Did Your Username ?".[2] In the OP, tropsical explained how he got his username and asked others to share their stories. Many users felt his posting style was "cute", and called for a dramatic reading of the post.

MaxOfS2D performed a reading of the post which was praised as "brilliant" and "perfect",[3][4][5] while tropsical responded that "i love it its great it make me laugh and think this how people read my write". A couple of weeks later, rbreslow ordered a reading of the post from Tyrone,[6] which was delivered the same day.[7] Tyrone's reading was also warmly received with many users praising his performance as a perfect representation of tropsical's mannerisms. tropsical responded "thx for this proffesional read !! now am know how the business ppl read my !!",[8] while Tyrone said he was "delighted this brought smile to so many faces".[9]

tropsical's last post was on 8 March 2014 in the thread "Draw the avatar of the user above you", in which he posted a seizure-inducing flashing gif and commented "mb its a little bit too much fast !!"[10] As of March 2014, he has not logged into Facepunch since shortly after that post.

Reactions

While many users found tropsical funny and cute, there were suspicions that he may simply be a gimmick account; User Fosax for example said "If it turns out he's faking it i'm gonna be so fucking mad".[11] MaxOfS2D however felt he was likely real as he had posted "from several dynamic IPs that are located in... Kuwait!"[12]. tropsical also has a YouTube channel with videos dating back to November 2012, a year before he joined Facepunch.[13]

thanks,, tropsical guy
