The "My new username" thread

Recommended Posts

Lots of folks changing their names recently, as the new software allows you to do that without bugging the mods. However, without the "Formerly X" titles, it's kinda hard to follow, who is who.

So, if you change your username, you can post about it here and not have people scratch their heads. :]

Changed mine from "Ragnor" to the username I use everywhere. In my infinite stupidity, when I registered on DW in 2008, I must have been very sleepy, because I signed up with my actual first name by mistake (for proof of my doofus mistake, look in the credits for Terraria on console or mobile >.>)

 

Been annoyed with this mistake for ever since. Thats... a long time. Feels good to have it fixed.

I see no reason to change mine anymore, I have been happy with it ever since it was changed from Doomsfall many (maybe 7) years ago.

I was thinking of changing mine into Gang Girl, but I don't see the point considering I go by Gangrel everywhere by default.

There's no real backstory behind this one. I just like this metal genre and I know about 125 bands in this genre. I've used it everywhere except Doom-related sites, including Twitter and some other site I'm basically a mod in. Also the k at the end is a homage to how some nu metal bands have intentional misspellings.

I'm debating on changing mine.  I don't know if I actually want to, or if I just think I want to because I suddenly can.

 

I used to be TraceOfSpades.  I changed it because my username was getting wrapped.  Fun fact, my late grandfather called me Tracer until the day he died.  Fond memories.  Plus, I am a gun and ammo enthusiast, and I always thought Tracer rounds were cool.

Fuck it. I changed it anyway. New forum, new picture, new name right?

I guess I'll be making two changes to the credits screen of D2R.  But Gangr-...err...GangGirl, now your gender is no longer a mystery!

Ain't changing mine. I've been 'Jayextee' on here since 2000* and y'all need to know what brand of MORON you get before you read my posts.

 

*; we don't talk about 'Jerkboy69'. Or 'ComicMischief'. :P

I figured people already figured that I was a girl.

I also figured we would just leave the credits screen with our original names on it.

My previous nickname was SFoZ911 but since it was just random combination of letters and numbers, I decided to change it to something else. I never bothered to ask a mod to change my name because I was afraid of being told no. I also wrote about it on my profile just in case anyone misses this thread.

If you don't care, I don't care.

I'm still me. Rf` is already the shortened form of ravagefox anyway.

Should I change my name to Jimothy Padlock?

Yes. Immediately. But it's actually Jimmothy IIRC.

I'm still calling you SFNumbers.

Hmm... so you identify as a gay girl now. Interesting.

Mine was changed before the forum transition and upon request privately to a staff member who was able to do so.

Just shortened mine to it's original form. I should still be easily recognizable. :P

I don't think I'll ever change from my current handle, but my "current handle" is pretty much any combination of Squawky, Arctangent / Atan, and whatever else I want to toss on ( especially Usagi Majo or Majo Shoujo, although those're more just for when someone else is doing something similar ).

 

At the same time, though, it always feels vaguely immature to not just be the Arctangent unless someone else is already the Arctangent of a community, so I'unno.
