Stop Changing Your NLSC handle

Stop Changing Your NLSC handle

Postby chicagoRAW on Sat Oct 20, 2012 4:08 am

Anyone else find this annoying? The people here who change their handles. I don't know if they are trying to get noticed or what, It's kinda annoying. And it doesn't improve certain things...

I know of a certain active guy that has changed his name 23 times since registering here in March. Don't know why, what's the point really. I'd like it if we had a thread here so that people would announce username changes, and maybe a reason why.

I'm not the guy who changed it 23 times, but I think I've changed it five times in the three years I've been here. I just changed it recently because I didn't like having my actual name as my username. My username before Cavs4872 was my name, Dan Podolski. The evolution of my username I think was XxCavaliers, XxHyperDunk24, Hyperize., .dan, Dan Podolski and now Cavs4872. It's just a bad habbit because I get tired of my old username. I think you guys are too generous allowing us to change our names. You should take the $10 route like Xbox. :wink:

And you just post that idea in public?

Had you sent me that on PM, I'd have given you a cut. Now, you get nothing.

You could've made $50 off me by now. You could've bought yourself a nice console version of 2K13.

Why do you find it annoying?
Why doesn't it improve certain things?
Why do you think changing a handle/username have something to do with you or the rest of you guys instead of the person's own reason one of which it possibly makes him happy of the change and doesn't really care about you people because his e-world doesn't revolve around you guys?

File it under pet peeves then. Going to the release & preview section, I know everyone and what they do and if I've checked out their latest stuff. Tired of figuring out who is who, every other day.

It's also a familiarity thing, that's the only thing we have to go by here so when someone changes their name, it's kinda hard to distinguish who they are, etc.

When someone changes their name every other day, it's like find a different hobby.

I hope that feeds your troll appetite for the day. (Y)

Agreed. This is really the only problem with it. I just try to keep my avatar the same from before I changed it so maybe people will recognize it, but it's not really that big of a deal to me. I just care about getting a message out; I don't care if people know it's me or not. I'm assuming no one here really knows each other in real life.

I am the one who changed my name 23 times... however I promised my self to not change it anymore since I think Like A Boss is kind of a weird name so I just combined my two names to change my username.

It's a constant changing world gotta keep up or be left behind man

What if that person doesn't want to be distinguished or stand out "because his e-world doesn't revolve around you guys"?

A hobby like patching or modding a game then releasing it in a forum full of random strangers?

Thank you for dropping the deadpool thing. Im the merc with the mouth of the NLSC. Me and Benjis failed mission that cost me my legs proves that.

We should all change our usernames everytime we post in this thread.

Wait, that was him?!

Well then I have decided to change my stance, like I said gotta keep up with change, and now agree to bannings on senseless handle changes.
Especially anything related to Deadpool.

I don't find it too annoying, it's not as though every regular is changing their username every day. To be honest, I'd find it more annoying if users couldn't change their own name and were constantly messaging me to get new ones, so for me it's the lesser of two evils. ;)

well that's a bit different. Mattan up there was Like a Boss before, then D4N, then xfam0usx, I mean, big changes. Not like shadowgrinch, .0, J@e/Jae or JaoSming11.

I don't believe I've ever changed my username anywhere. I probably should, as it's completely stupid, but it's so completely second-nature to me now that I don't even see it as shitty non-caps txtspk. It's just my name.

Changed again and will be changed again once I finally figure out what my new username will be.

You're welcome.
