Title: Name change Request
Post by: Bkeela on May 08, 2006, 06:54:03 am
Is there anyway I can change my nickname?  It is supposed to be Bkeela, with an 'a' on the end, not Bkeel.   :(

Someone took Wii?! Why don't they ever post? We should corner him in a back alley and beat the change out of his pockets!

:P

Post by: Ultimatum on June 10, 2008, 12:36:44 pm
Okay.
Before I begin allow me to explain the reasons behind this thread;when a user changes their name on a forum;it usually causes confusion,so making this thread here means people will see that the user known as Elephant as not "gone" but mealy changed their name.
So without can I please with sugar and spice and all things nice can I have my user name changed to Ultimatum, thanks

Also if users wish to have their names changed, they can ask here rather then sending a message to the mods,thanks again.

It is a good idea but you mustn't forget that some people do not want people to know that they've changed their names. Don't ask me.

Still, I hope people use this.

Opium Monster was my good clone I killed him and I'm actually the evil clone so I changed my name to something more...befitting

Post by: Ultramarine on June 10, 2008, 05:30:19 pm
Sporelover is still here...

Just way deep in the catcombs of mind, locked away never seeing day light....

Until...Spore that is...DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUN!

Wow that was sorta cinematic!
But honestly, it felt good to change it; might be taken more seriously (which I doubt).
Anyway, good name choice Elep- I mean Ultimatum. Sounds epic :)

Plank you should change your name to either Eels or professor hardwood (ya know to keep with the wood theme)
Title: Re: Name change Request

OR DoctorP.

Wait, no, the urine jokes would never stop.

Moving on.


Edit: WAIT! DoctorPOW!!!!!

I'd like to see a member with an interjection as a user name.

You're good side smoke opium?  You must be pretty evil.

I eat babies for breakfast, your loved ones for lunch and your parents for dinner.

Ahem...

Stay on topic? Maybe? ;)

Points to the first person to link to a certain old name changing thread! :D
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Met on June 10, 2008, 06:45:58 pm
Possibly this one (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=4123.0)?
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Oviraptor on June 10, 2008, 06:47:15 pm
Nope. I'm thinking of a specific one... the parties involved will probably remember it. :P
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Met on June 10, 2008, 06:49:37 pm
Hmm. Was it merged with another topic? I seem to remember a thread for it...
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: PatMan33 on June 10, 2008, 06:52:27 pm
I know which one you mean... but that is very very very old and somewhat irrelevant. Might as well keep this as is. But it's player's choice so do what you want.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Oviraptor on June 11, 2008, 02:04:15 pm
Yeah, I don't think it should be merged. Since most of that topic has generally nothing to do with what it started as.

Just wanted to see how many people knew what I was talking about. ;)
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Krakow Sam on June 12, 2008, 05:01:23 am
Ah, the Clone Wars... what dark times those were...
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: PatMan33 on June 12, 2008, 09:43:29 am
Kind of glad I wasn't around for it. :D

Those first two months must have been hell, what with not having me here and all.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Oviraptor on June 12, 2008, 02:16:17 pm
Shush, you joined two days after I did. You even made your first post before I did!

And yes, the Clone Wars... it could only happen once. :P
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: gec05 on June 12, 2008, 02:23:18 pm
And I'm pretty sure Pat had his share of trouble making when he first joined. :)
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: PatMan33 on June 12, 2008, 03:46:10 pm
Absolutely true!
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Oviraptor on June 12, 2008, 03:48:14 pm
Well, I think you'll find most users starts were a little shakier than they are now. Mine included. :P
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: PatMan33 on June 12, 2008, 03:50:58 pm
The forum, as a whole, was a lot shakier. It took a good year and a half before it grew into a respectable forum with a semi-self-sustaining infrastructure.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: LadyM on June 12, 2008, 04:03:46 pm
I was never shaky ;) and the clone wars is why no one can change their names now. :D Someone got stuck with the name and had to beg for it back, can't remember who though. :D
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Oviraptor on June 12, 2008, 04:06:32 pm
I can. Maybe you need to go reread the thread. :P

Could I have my name changed to Draugr?

Aren't those like...superstrong norse zombies/undead?
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Cobra on June 12, 2008, 09:22:17 pm
Didn't I sleep through/generally not be on online for most of the clone wars which just made it all the more confusing when reading back on people having trouble telling them selves apart from others.

I searched for name change and found this.

Could a mod or admin please change my name to Wonderful Lizard of Oz?  I made a mistake while registering.

But Wonder Lizard of Oz is cooler...Far cooler.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Wonderful Lizard of Oz on June 30, 2008, 03:10:14 pm
Yeah, you're right.  Wonder Lizard of Oz it is!
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Daxx on June 30, 2008, 03:11:44 pm
I dunno, Wonderful has a better ring to it.

Welcome to the forums, by the way.

Don't let his gentle welcome fool you... should you cross him, he will tear your very being to shreds so that it can never be reassembled.

Yeah, you're right.  Wonder Lizard of Oz it is!

That's what Gec is trying to point out...
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Daxx on July 01, 2008, 11:19:21 am
Actually this brings up an interesting thought experiment.

I wonder what would happen if you created an internet community where no-one is allowed to pick their name, but is given one by the community.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: LadyM on July 01, 2008, 11:24:02 am
Oh that could be so much fun.  :D
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Ultramarine on July 01, 2008, 11:27:18 am
Sounds interesting.

Guess it could work on some type of lottery system.
Even though it's a hypothetical thought, I do find interest in that as well Daxx.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: gec05 on July 01, 2008, 11:27:27 am
We can do that for next April Fools.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Met on July 01, 2008, 11:32:34 am
Assign everyone a number. Just the number that links to your profile. I'd be 2292. Gec would be 1065. SporeLover would be 3228. LadyM would be 64.

Avatars would also be removed. Individuality would be a punishable offense.

Well done finding this.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Brandonazz on July 01, 2008, 02:23:40 pm
Woulfe would be 42.
Title: Re: Name change Request

What would I be?
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Andrew Ryan on July 01, 2008, 02:41:10 pm
A communistic April Fools prank? I would fight it every step of the way with my "Ryan Resistance". Fight the Power!
Title: Re: Name change Request

Your new forum name will be: Poopface.

and there you see the flaw in the system ladies and poopfaces.

Sam will now be Nose Poker McStinky Pants.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Mr. Consideration on July 02, 2008, 12:44:53 am
It'd work after a little while, but if people were just doled out names upon arrival names wouldn't be representative.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: Brandonazz on July 02, 2008, 01:26:34 am
Well I assume they wouldn't be assigned official names when they joined, it'd be later.
Title: Re: Name change Request
Post by: LadyM on July 02, 2008, 07:10:14 am
After a long search, I found it, the place where new names would be assigned: New names (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=7786.0)

Ah yes.

Goober Dippin-doodle at your service.

Post by: sgore on July 02, 2008, 06:58:13 pm
Ah yes.

Goober Dippin-doodle at your service.

For some reason your new name sounds like a Baskin-Robins ice cream flavor.
(And yes...I too have read that Dav Pilkey book.)

I think a semi-anonymous fourm would be fun for a day,
However I especially like the fourm picked names idea.
All of my suggestions would be obscure references to Kurt Vonnegut Jr stories.
