    This is not the place to request a user name change. If you want to change your username, please send a private message to Alex.

    Okay guys, it's weirding me out seeing site members with thousands of posts and years of membership, only to think "...who the hell is that?" because they've changed their username. My attention span might be short, but not short enough to miss someone with 3k posts over 5 years. :lol:

    So, how about this. If you change your forum username, or you've changed it in the past, or you're aware of someone who's changed their username but hasn't indicated so in any obvious capacity, post about it in this thread.

    EDIT: Please, no joke posts.

    Ahh... It's like the square and the rectangle... The best part about this is that he specifically asked for no jokes... And this is hilarious even though it's totally NOT a joke...

    Is this an appropriate spot to formally request a name change so that ppl know it's coming? I'd like to be Inkawgneegrow so that people stop making that horribly uninspired "maybe you're konfyouzd" joke every time they don't know they're wrong... Seriously...

    Yeah, when Stealthtastic changed his name to Stealthdjentstic, guitar_rob changed his to Stealthtastic.

    Wait, what?!

    The ones that threw me off the most were Fun111 changing to Rook and The_Armada changing to... I forget what his username is now (though I recognize it when I see it). I had spent a few months off of SSO, and when I came back I kept wondering where they had gone to.

    Yes, I knew about the Stealth thing (even though, let's face it, TK's post was meant more as a joke than anything ;)), I was more addressing Razzy's post.

    No worries though.

    That would explain a lot. I interpreted that as him saying that Grand_Moff_Tim really was shono.

    Heh. I should have looked at that one a little more closely. I just assumed it was about Stealth, since he's everyone's chew toy around here.

    I have a mental block against shono. :lol:

    Haha, yeah, I picked up on that. ;)

    Bad time for a Rorschach test involving yellow playdough figures?

    I used to be rg7420user but Chris was nice enough to delete the original "Rick" so I could take it. Dude wasn't even a real contributor or anything anyway. :lol:

    I changed my name once(kennedyblake), but the real problem is that I change my avatar just about every week. I've recently started attending AA meetings(avatars anonymous). I now have a new perspective on life. It's not about the avatar you have, but the rep you don't have.
