Recommended Posts

Amanda Amanda, this might be one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time.

When I first had to think of a fantasy name for internet purposes, I looked around my room for inspiration and saw my Steinlein chatnoir picture, the one in my avatar. It fits me well, I think and I'm not going to change my username any time soon.

Yep for the very reason that nobody would know who anybody else was when people began to change usernames I have decided not to use this function. Just change my profile picture to fuck with people's minds.

Well, my old username was JadedInsomniac21. I chose that when I signed up because I'm terrible at choosing usernames, and I didn't want it to be my real name because giving out your information online is scary and I don't know what kind of place this was. So I chose a song, an album, and a number.

I changed my username because my old one was a mouthful. I decided to make it Sarabeth because that's my name and I now know GDC isn't full of creeps so I don't mind people knowing my personal information. :)

My name used to be Olapola, where Ola is my name and pola just rhymes with it. I changed it to Sarcasm in 2009 or something.

I guess I used to be much more of a sarcastic douche bag than I am now, but I like the name anyway.

Before all of that, my name online was Gaypower, but name restrictions on many sites + some hateful PM's and questions about my sexuality made me change it.

I used to be Supermöööööööööööööööööööördär a few months ago. i've chosen the name Nemo. because one of my non-gd- favorite songs is called nemo. i really love that song and the lyrics are fitting perfectly to my life. the other reason is that i really love the movie "finding nemo"

I came up with this username when I was 12 and first started on a GD fansite. It's a reference to a joke "band" me and my friends imaginingly formed. I don't think it will change at any time soon, I really like my username.

I was hermione with a small h for a bit, but then I changed it to Hermione so it's nice and grammatically correct. Can't imagine ever using anything other than my name as a username anywhere, not creative enough for that.

My username is and has always been my name, Mauricio, only shortened.

BOOOOOOOOORING

Mine is from "Homecoming"

I wanted to find a unique GD related name. Not something obvious like "Whatsername29349828"

I flipped through the cd jacket and found this phrase and so it became my username.

Originally, it was "The spark in the night" But then I got rid of the first "The"

My second option would have been "her heart's apocalypse" That was my myspace display name for a while. Back in the day.

I also have another username alias on other sites, but I will not post it because it is just too good and I don't want anyone to use it.

I chose lizziebix as an alias because, I too, wasn't sure I wanted to be known here at first. When, I forget who, used my real name the first time, I realized it didn't matter anymore. But I like lizziebix. She's a bit of my alter ego and the heroine of the book I've been writing my whole life. Seeing the name reminds to get back to working on it!

I have gone back to my username of a few years ago :happy: First I was rebecca123, then I was colour_me_stupid_, then I was stupid and changed it to Ultraviolet Bliss, and now I am colour_me_stupid_ again.

And yes, there is a letter u in "colour". It looks weird the American way. :P

This thread is great. Didn't know Sarabeth and Nemo. are who they are because of the new username thing :lol:

I thought my username was super clever when I made it but then it wasn't available with spaces or underscores so I did it with dots, still thinking it was super clever. I don't think I need to say that it is not, in fact, clever at all. Ah well don't care.

Wait when did you change it back? :o Didn't notice that.

On a couple other not related to GD forums I was Jesus of Suburbia. Used it on this one for consistency, but later realized it was fucking retarded to use it on a GD forum. So I changed it.

But... I liked Ultraviolet Bliss. :P

I also wanna change my username, but the name I want it taken by some person who hasn't been on here for years. :mad:

Try adding a full stop (period) to the end of the name.

I have a fair amount of experience of finding ways around these problems, Fuzzicle would be all "You've got better things to do than keep changing people's names every time they ask". :lol:

I just got really sick of it some reason.. But I kinda like how I came up with it, the ultraviolet is from Pulling Teeth and the bliss is a muse song.. But I just hate it now :lol:

Nope you're grand! Doubt I'll be changing my purple Josh Homme avatar anyway, so there's always that to recognize me by
