You are who you are, why change?

Its like saying, hey lets think of a better name than "amiga" something more 2013 like advanced game ninja processing simulator production box.

Iv been mrbob2 since 2005 and yes, i could go by my real name of HunkyMcStudmuffin but im mrbob2 and thats that lol

Hi RCK,

can you please change my username from s2325 to f-c (it's the name of the character on my current avatar picture).

Kind regards,
f-c / s2325

Well, I'm certainly not following this new trend and changing my username to P.

What about 'the member formerly known as prowler'

(and yes, I took the oppurtunity to change too...)

Keep it as bippym. Unless you want to change it to something awesome like EABforumglobomodbot8000. Then I am all for it.

Why not Bippy Mark? Or Mark Bippy?

To obvious?

I have a terrible real name and have been searching for a nickname for real life all the time but nothing did really match or no one accepted it. People keep misspelling my name, call me with other relatives names or refer to me as "der Typ". (Don´t know how to translate that).

But I want to be anonymous on the web anyway. That´s just way better.

Good, using your real name only leads to the fact that people (and sites that gather up personal information) actually find you

Under international law you are not allowed to change your EAB user name.

I have informed the appropriate authorities at the United Nations who will be visiting RCK to form a guard (of honor) around the EAB server

Bolox, I have just realised how old this thread is.... we are now back at Defcon 5.
