'cause I'd like to change mine.

Thanks!

It is possible. If you let me know what you want yours changed to, I'll put in the request to an admin for you.

SheilaJG

Thank you!

Just plain ol' SheilaJG would be fine.

Okay, the request is in, so sit back, have a coffee and cookies and wait to be regenerated :)

SheilaJG
05-19-2010, 12:18 AM
Will it hurt?

MacAllister

Should only sting for a second, like a mosquito bite...

Ah, the regeneration is complete. There's something different about you now, can't quite place my finger on it, though. :D

Did it hurt? Much?

SheilaJG
05-19-2010, 12:37 AM
:D Yipee!

Oh, wait. Something feels different. Am I supposed to have six fingers on my right hand? And I never noticed that freckle before.

Thanks again!

I've put in the request, so, as before, coffee and cookies, although Baileys is nice, and wait for the regeneration to begin. :)

I want to change mine also........but after great consideration....I have decided to keep the one I have. I would get lost if I tried to use a different one. Sigh.

Don't mind me.....carry on.....................

Okay, request is in and hopefully you shouldn't have to wait too long before regeneration. Make sure you still have fingers and toes afterwards ;)

Whoa, what a ride! The reentry was a bit rough but I kept my hands and feet inside the vehicle at all times and made it through just fine. Well, I do still have a slight tick but it should go away over time.

Thanks for the regen.

I would like to change it to rosiroo, which is my online alias at Notebook in Hand too.

Thank you!

But my ears are missing.

Where are my ears?

Is that them in the corner? I've got some glue if you need to reattach them?

First time I have logged in for a year! I'm a bit reluctant (as this account is 3 years old) to create a new account so is it possible for a username change? Would be appreciated! :)

Now you have to change your user title to something like 'Monkeying around' :D

Esmeralda
11-27-2010, 05:37 PM
Wait, wait, wait.
What's all this?
My user name is one of my main characters. She'd be really ticked off (can I say that here?) if I changed it.
So Esmeralda it shall remain.

But the rest of you, have fun!

If it's not too much trouble, could admin change my user name to BIG ASSED BABY!, take a screenshot, and then switch me back to Giant Baby again before I'm any the wiser?

That's prolly a "no," rite?

A dream for later, perchance?

(:e2cat: <= Random kitty smilie. I don't know why.)

MacAllister
12-02-2010, 04:08 AM
Yeah, err...no. Request denied.

I like it. And that gives me an idea. :D

You be "MacAllister" and I'll be "Joulupukki." Wait... We got DENIED??? Oh, rite, I remember now. But, I do still love you a little bit. You know, for the thought, and all.

Ooh, if only I was MacAllister, half the threads would be 'super-dooper', a quarter dedicated to dragons and how awesome they are, and a quarter for dancing bananas. Because you can't forget about the dancing bananas :banana: :banana: :banana: :banana:

Oh, I'd also start banning anyone who mentioned either spiders or oranges in their posts :D

Hmm, come to think of it, maybe best to stick with how things are now. The power may go to my head :D

Are you saying you want to change your name to Escape Artist?

Just making sure so I don't use the wrong name.

In hindsight, using my real first and last name might not be a good idea....

Escape Artist

Yes - please change it to Escape Artist - sorry if I wasn't clear on that (my gut told me I wasn't being clear enough, but I ignored it - that's what I get).

Medievalist
12-14-2010, 11:09 PM

If I changed my name to : ) (with no space) would it show up as :) for each of my posts? I think that'd be really cool to have on Christmas day and NYE. :) <-- see? I'm a smiling addict! Oh the humanity!!

MacAllister
12-21-2010, 11:19 PM
Heh. Nope - it would show up as the characters. But I typically discourage non alpha-numeric characters in user names, for a variety of reasons.

You'll just have to make do with the smileys in your post text, I'm afraid.

I think you should wait until you're off the pain meds to make any life-altering decisions.

Cliff Face
12-22-2010, 01:20 AM
Wayne K sounds like "My name is Wayne, okay?!?" to me.
Wayne Que seems to be more, "What's that Wayne?"

I guess either is good, but I thought you should know my impressions.

:D

(I hope your pain meds are grrrrrrrrrrreat!)

That would be amazing, and you would get lots of love from me. :D

You realize Mac has to first quarry the stone, then smelt the steel to carve your name into the stone, then haul the stone up to the server room at the top of a mountain during a blizzard?

How long did that Username switch take, all told Mac?

Or not.
