    Basically people do it when what they want is taken.. so instead of thinking of something else, they jus put numbers on the end. Whether it be a number specific to them or just a random loada numbers :)

    Sometimes it has meaning to them and sometimes it's because the name they wanted was taken. Personally, I couldn't stand having numbers after my name, I'm just weird like that.

    I must admit I don't like putting numbers after my name, but I do sometimes use them when someone's already taken the name.

    well when u think about it its pretty annoying to have a number after your username after all lol...anyways, my username has a "91" at the end since thats the year i was born...sometimes, the numbers r of significence and r put there for a certain reason while others r simply random or there other names were taken; for example, someone might put "Alex59" as their name, 59 being their football uniform number or something like that, or even the year they were born
