Time for a name change

Guys,

I've been known online as BippyM in some form or another since around 1997/8.

I think it might be time to drop the nickname and use my real name, before I make the plunge and drop my "Online name" I want your votes

Should I do this? Vote above

(It's in project.eab because I'm a Gm here, so kinda affects the board )

How about Myppib.

No, don't change it. It's too late to learn a new one for us.

It is just like changing phone number. Need two years to let anyone that you have new number. And what about girls from the past in case they want to contact you again for revealing old memories

Edit: Maybe you should be 'CJ' and Bippy will be 'BM'? Or 'MG'...

Hahaha girls from the past won't have referred to me as BippyM. That's not my bedroom nickname Loool.


As for the rest of the nick names, some of you are bonkers.. Yes Cody I'm looking squarely at you :what:

Can I change my name to breakpointUK

I only use Djay here, I use breakpointUK everywhere else including my website, gamertag, psn name, elite forums, youtube, raptr etc etc

I will put aka Djay as my custom user title, my avatar is fairly recognisable

thanks in advance if it can be done

Well, I had my nick changed from DemonHellraiser to just plain ole DH, reason, firstly because everyone calls me DH anyway, and secondly, because i got tired of writing it out along with everyone else

Whatever you want to be called Mark, I mean bippym, don't make it too long. Also, if you do use your real name then the Amiga scene won't accept you anymore, they are like that you know

Suggestions:

MarkMyWord
CompareTheMarKit
Harvard Mark (first large-scale automatic digital computer)
SkidMark (I'm talking about the Amiga game of course!)
Markus Amigus



My current username is old hat these days (stemmed from my online Scrabble days), these days (at other forums) it's Muppetboy. Even got a plaque on the front door that reads, "Beware of the Muppet!". OK, ok, I need to get out more....
