    ^ Just don't change your avatar for like a year so I have time to associate your new username with who you actually are (though I know you're Will Smith anyway).

    Dang, now I'm starting to feel like a total loser: I really liked the name Misery Theory. I liked Dingaling, too. Looks like the move is toward regular names. I feel like this is the part of the movie where the old gang grows up, gets married and moves to the suburbs to get all responsible and stuff. :lol:

    ^if it makes you feel better, I'm likely gonna stick with TheWarAgainstTime forever haha

    The only way someone else is getting my name/acronym is if they pry it from my cold, dead hands :lol:

    I actually want to change my name and have pm'd Alex about it a few months ago, but so far have not had any reply :(

    Been considering starting a new account, but that's against the rules, and I would lose all my posts :(

    Folks put way too much emphasis on username. Much like the band makes or breaks the band name, the quality of poster seems to make the name not really matter so much.

    Look at my name, it's cheesy as all heck, but whatever. If someone chooses to hold that against the information or recommendations I give, well, I think we all know who really looks like a fool.

    For what it's worth, if you guys haven't heard back from Alex about a name change, try him again.

    I think most dissatisfaction you see with a username around here is purely with the holder of said username. For years on another forum, before I started using this username, mine was essentially random word + random number. I grew to resent it, because it just seemed silly, especially since I started using my current name later that same year I registered there in other places. No one else gave a damn, but that didn't stop me from hating it. Alas, the policy on that forum forbade name changes, so I had to stick it out.

    Then I discovered SSO. My old username on that old forum faded into a dim memory, along with the rest of my presence there, in the light of my new identity.

    Hell "Danukenator" was the result of bastadizing "Duke Nukem". It is supposed to read Da-nuke-ah-nay-tor, so it's not even spelled correctly. :lol: But why bother changing it? I like the name and it's different enough to stand out. Unless you have a truly obnoxious user name, no one is going to judge you. (XxMetalMessiah666/69xX is a good example)

    Just had my name changed from TechMetal. I don't even like tech-metal anymore

    I'm surprised that "Joshua" was still available :lol:

    Yup, I just came in here to check that. I was wondering what the odds are that two people on here would be posting a bunch of sitting-around-the-fire-pit-at-camp-topics that have nothing to do with guitars or music. :lol: :scratch:
