<---6th grade yahoo email account. Have I made even a nickle off of prostitutes? No. Ladies man? Not really either. Answer: I'm very lazy.

I'm sure I've been discredited on many occasions, oddly I would tend to do the same. I deserve a kick in the pants, new user name in order.

Initials seems like a good idea without pondering the implications of user name. Was thinking 'deep six' but I think I'll save that for a six chambered revolving launcher.

I rather agree with Biopyro's sentiments on not changing your avatar all the time - an avatar is often the easiest way to recognise someone.

Admittedly, my avatar isn't human, but I've changed it all of twice in the time I've been on forums with this name, and have no plans to change it one soon - there's no problems with it and it's recognisable.

As far as names - pick something that isn't just a jumble of letters, and I personally also avoid picking a name that is expressly linked to the forum.

So (no offence to those that have done it), I'd not pick a username for this site that included words like "Potato" or "Spud" - the thing is, lots of people do that kind of thing, and then it's all too easy for those people to get muddled up in people's minds.

I also have to counter BTB somewhat, because I prefer not to use my real name online.
Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

Mine - kjjohn - is my real name abbreviated. The first two letters are my first and middle initials, and the "john" is the first 4 letters of my last name (Johnson).

Wow, and here I picked my name because I feel that ambiguity is much more interesting than something that gives an image. My initials are ABR if anyone feels like guessing.

I understand if you don;t want to use your real name.
But people remember " dirty Harry" better than rft3h62 for instance.

I would not want to be exposed either after the Nazi uniform incident..if I were you " Rag" :D

He only said he didn't make money from prostitutes, nothing about not being an African American with a fetish for furry white clothing.

Mine is the first three letters of my first name and the first 2 letters of my last name. Although, when I was going to college we played a LOT of computer games through the 'rigged' server in the electronics lab... My character name was always Kenbo as my friend, a retired Air Force photographer now a judge, was Denbo... His idea, not mine. He watched too many Rambo movies...

I agree that this name will suit you better. Younger people tend to make up "blow stuff up" names, and when you are older you want to get rid of it.

I will probably change my name once in the next few years.
But I WILL always keep my avatar. Not because I like it so much, but because an avatar is your virtual face.

If you undergo insane plastic surgery and obtain a completely different face, don't look surprised if your friends don't recognize you until you give them your ID.
Changing your avatar does the same thing: people don't recognize you until they read your name.
Till the day I'm dieing, I'll keep them spuddies flying, 'cause I can!

I picked my name simply because it makes me laugh.

This topic is over a year old.

No need to kick it...
