I found the Truth and it's so obvious that I can't understand why I didn't find it earlier.KZ's name comes from Koumbi Saleh and Zarma people.Obvious, isn't it? I don't even need to explain it. It's crystal clear.Well, I'll explain it, because we might have some new forum members that may have missed some facts, but even by discarding most of the facts, it should be quite easy to figure out KZ's meaning.Facts:1. Nobody in the forums tells the truth about their identity in order to be protected from identity theft. However, some clues may be gathered because after a while, people get relaxed and unintentionally disclosure bits of their personal life.2. KZ said that he is a Russian living in the UK. This is evidently false. Who could really believe in that!3. If further facts were needed to prove that KZ isn't from Russia, notice that in TRPG, KZ names himself Kolko, a name of central European origin (more common from Hungary) that shows up in the USA (and not on the UK). This is inconsistent with 2. Hence, both assumptions are false.4. In the forum game World Domination 3! KZ placed in 1st place Ghana for no apparent reason. Notice that he didn't sorted alphabetically the country names. He placed Ghana in the 1st place. He didn't do it in the previous games because he was protecting his identity, but this time he slipped. Hence, KZ is from Ghana, which has English as its official language.5. In order to obscure his origins, KZ chose to mention that he's living in some other country. Since we could be able to figure out his time zone by the time of day that he usually posts, he chose to say that he lives on the UK because it's on the same time zone than Ghana.6. KZ is Zarma. Zarma are people that live in different places in the area of influence of the (ancient) Ghana empire, in particular in northern parts of the (current) Ghana Republic. So, that's where the Z comes from.7. The capital of the (ancient) Ghana empire was Koumbi Saleh. In homage to that, KZ choose its first letter.8. Koumbi Saleh is to the north of where Ghana currently is, but not far away from where KZ is from.9. The Ghanaian culture gives great importance to textiles. The red and blue are often used, in conjunction with other colours. Hence, KZ chose an avatar with the letters KZ in those colours.Hence, "KZ" clearly identifies where he is from and his cultural references. His name is hidden from us because he was careful enough in that aspect.

But in any case, I already gave an answer, rainen, so 'tis not an exclusive knowledge ;)Ert... no words for that- impressive! How did you KNOW? :DA couple of points to note: Folks speak "proper" British English not just in UK, they can be taught it in other countries... in Ghana, for instance :)Kolko is Hungarian??? O-O! So much for randomly typing in letters on the keyboard...In any case, keep going folks!! And I totally agree with Ert, this is just for a good laugh with a bit of thought put into it!
