Stosh <3's me vicariously... at least someone does...

It's bad enough when you guys change emblems; I can't imagine what it will be like if people start swapping names. My filing system will be in chaos.

But really, we have almost no way of identifying each other besides our usernames. Don't you feel like you'll lose a bit of yourself if you change it?

I guess it could be different for older and younger members, but I personally won't be changing mine.

What are you going to do to make sure that you stay you?

I probably won't be changing mine, but they could always have the user's old name in brackets next to their new name for a certain amount of time.

Now, in the quantum moment before the closure, when all become one. One moment left. One point of space and time.

I know who you are.

You are Destiny.

I pray to god none of you will be able to associate my old username with my potential new one. (Assuming of course this feature exists, it not ill probably cry.)

Butter my ass, turn around, spread open my butt cheeks, and say "Right here mutha-blam!-a!!"

Join Planetary Annihilation and Speed Haven

I will (if I can) capitalize the c. Other than that, I'm going to stay the same.

A thread will have to be made for users to check in, front page updated regularly with a format like this;

Viron -----> ?????
catman6 ------> Catman6

etc. I wouldn't mind making it on the switchover

global warming isn't proven and won't be - it's more of a political play for funding for "research"

Just learn the new ones

The more I say Chang the more asian it sounds.

If I had to change my name, it wouldn't be so drastic.

I only wanted to take that "inc" part out and put "Dr" in the front, just like my gamertag.

The Fight is Finished and the Road to Recon is behind !

Not changing mine, neither.

  • 01.08.2013 11:34 AM PDT

I'll be keeping mine the same. Not that anyone knows me.

I'm sure there will be some indication of your previous username.

It is possible to commit no errors and still lose. That is not a weakness. That is life.

Cheeto is the only one among you that doesn't suck.

How so? Like a public changelog on your page?

That's the only thing that I can think of; hopefully it won't be obnoxious.
