Do You (still) Like Your User Name?

Mon Jun 17, 2002 8:50 pm

Well, I would like to know if you still like your user name, if you would change it or (if) what you don't like about it.

I think mine is OK, the disadvantage I have is that everyone knows where I'm from, but in general I like it.

So, what's about you?

That's exactly why I put my real nickname as my username and not an airline company or an aircraft. Those things come and go, but my nickname will always be Marco, and I like it!

Well, the problem with real names is following:
try to open an account with Marco at Hotmail (just an example), with mine I can open accounts with most places, websites etc.
I like to use the same on all different places, sites etc. Simply because its more convenient and even with the small risk that I'm not always very happy with my user name...

Ndebele is still one of my favourite BA World Tails. There is no possibility to take the username "ColourDownTheSide" because it consists of more than 14 letters, and I couldn't take "Benyhone" because this username already exists (although "Benyhone" is one of the least active users, only 7 posts within more than one year). So I would still choose "Ndebele" as my username, and we will see the BA World Tails for at least three or four more years.

I had a few other user names before I settled on "KROC". And yes, those other names have been gone. I still like KROC. It represents where I am from, flows nice, and has become a staple of mine.

It is only possible to obtain a new name when you sign up again as a "First class"-member, as free memberships are not available anymore, I'm afraid....

In my case I simply use my family name as an username, that's convenient for me.

But there is one thing that I don't understand here, why so many users have their real names withheld (in their user profile), what are you people so afraid of?

OK, I understand that some people have to hide their name(s), because they have some information that would cause them trouble if their employeer's knew that they share it with people on the a.net forums.

But how large percentage of the contributors have such type of employment that makes that necessary??

I would welcome if someone could explain that!!

I started off on the forums as Brissie_Lions. Named after the best footy team in the world today. After about 2 years with that nickname, I changed over to "aviatsiya". Aviatsiya is Russian for aviation, which is where my passion in aviation lays...I could care less about USAirways or British Airways or QANTAS or other such airlines, unless of course it somehow concerns Russian aviation.

Sometime ago, I registered aviatsiya.ru for a friend of mine in Moscow, but after seeing the forums here he told me what I could do with the username :0)

So I decided to change from aviatsiya to aviatsiya.ru

Aviatsiya.ru being a website I am currently working on dealing exclusively with Russian/CIS civil aviation. So apart from declaring where my interests in aviatsiya lays, my username will also become a great promotional tool for the website when it is up and running in the coming months Big grin

IwantaBBJ.

Are you serious?

"KROC" is the airport identifier for the Greater Rochester International Airport. Rochester (Crapchester) is my home city. Thats why I chose that name. I was in the military at the time, and took it as a way of representing "home".

Nah, I don't like mine that much anymore. I'd rather change it to my email address name. I wonder if anyone can guess what the "FS" stands for. Contrary to popular belief, it's not FlightSim. Yes it has to do with aviation.

KROC: I always thought your username looked like a radio station, lol. We have a radio station down here in SoCal called "KROQ" and your name always reminds me of it, even though I never listen to that station.

I think the username is the only part of your topic that you cannot change. But if anybody wants to change his/her username... why not exchanging the usernames between two users? E.g., I would like to become KROC. So KROC, would you please send me an e-Mail with your password, then I will send you an e-Mail with my password, and then we will both change the other's password, and from that very moment I will post here with the username KROC, and KROC you can post here with my good old Ndebele username - confess, KROC, you always wanted to be Ndebele, didn't you  Big grin

ps: I'm just joking

I wanted a fresh user name after the second of my username's namesakes passed on.

I emailed Admin...requesting a change of username. I thought "It Won't Be Long" but it was "Misery," 'cause, you see, I've received "No Reply" to my email. I suppose that meant "Don't Bother Me" or that "I'm A Loser."

I really wish I could remember what my very first user name was back in 1998...I'd go back to that one.

I umm, am not a boy anymore. I was 16 when I started here. I don't fly anymore. I chose 36Y because I figured I would solo that plane. I soloed 07M instead. So no, I don't like mu username. As a matter of fact I stopped coming to A.net about two years ago. Recently I wanted to come back but I realised that they were charging money. Frantically I searched to find what my old username was. I was trying to remember what questions I may have asked or answered two years ago to try to find a thread with my username on it. When I finally found it, it took three days to remember my password. On June 7th 2002 (my 19th birthday) I found it. What a great birthday gift  Smile>

Lubcha132, well I was diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type IIb, but Ihadapheo is just a little easier to type and it just rolls off the tongue so much nicer than "IhaveMultipleendocrineneoplasiatypeIIb" but then I could be wrong, well I could go for KBUF but that would cause all kinds of false gossip about Sir KROC and I.

I signed up here while my friends were around joking what my user name should be, and one of them, obsessive to cheese, just gives me this suggestion. Being the moron that I am, I agreed, jokingly, and though it would be nice for a while to have a "silly" username. Now its just childish in my opinion, but i'll have to deal with it.

Although my name will soon be an anachronism (I chose my username after Southwest Airlines' former red and gold colors) I still like it and will probably stick with it.

Or perhaps I will change it back to "bandimal" which is my general screen name, but I've never registered it here. (Band + animal = person who could be in marching band year round for the rest of her life)
