I think I started a trend. Everyone wants a nick with a consonant, then epp, then a liquid consonant. First it was me, then peppers, and even Fx3 is now Zepper. But then he probably just wanted to get away from Mozilla Corp's official abbreviation of "Firefox 3".

- That's a huge coincidence for me. Really. ^_^;;

I want to be tokulordofthenesandmasteroftheuniversemaru, can I?!?!

Seriously, these name changes should be handled quietly, or else everyone will want to change their names eventually.

And if you actually change my username to tokulordofthenesandmasteroftheuniversemaru I will have to punch you.

Announcements are so that people don't get confused as to what happened to a specific user. And I consider only requests with a good reason.

Hello!

I'd like to change my username to "djcouchycouch", so that it's consistent with my SpritesMind username (and other retro forums), making me easier to find.

Thanks!

Granted. I'm still sort of disappointed that phpBB 3's form to assign a special rank to a user still doesn't have an easy way to create a new special rank.

Thanks!

Will the "Formerly shawnleblanc" be there forever or will disappear with time?

It is your special rank.

NovaSquirrel changed his fursona years ago.

(That and the case of Era's Adventures probably made NovaYoshi a bit untenable.)

WhatULive4 wanted to sync his NESdev BBS username with his Twitter account under the name NESHomebrew.

I'm considering changing my NESdev username to consolidate my online identity.

The name 'tepples' was generated randomly in 2002 with the aid of a Scheme program when I wanted to leave behind a confusing username that my college had generated for me. But I have since learned that Dutch speakers see it and giggle at the resemblance to their word for what mammals have but boobies and tits don't. It'd be like a mom naming her daughter Areola, thinking it's a variant of Ariel. Nor do I vant to suck your anything. Ruling out clanging to a brand of toys that inspired one of my fictional races is another part of it. So is putting the Bumpity-whatever incident and LOCKJAW Tetromino Game behind me.

Lately when I've signed up for other sites, I've been using either my birth name or some variant on "Pino". More to come.
