    Username changes

    This thread is for the announcement of user name changes, per the new user name change policy.

    You'll have to start your own thread for trash talk of new usernames.

    Hmmm . . . worth thinking about, but I do like my user name!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011

    Also, to clarify:

    I change that still leaves you more-or-less identifiable isn't a major name change, and probably something we could do more often. An example might be RichmondJake to FloridaJake. A major name change is something that leaves no traces of the original name; for example, michaelskis to XXdragonslayer69XX

    Oh that would be awesome! I am all for that... NOT

    I personally plan to keep my name because it describes me well. My name is Mike and for a good part of my life, I was a ski bum!
    If you want different results in your life, you need to do different things than you have done in the past. Change is that simple.

    I'm serious when I say that I'd like to have a minor username change. Dan, if you would like to know why, I'd be happy to PM you the reason.

    One idea I had was "Stana", (see http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showt...ana#post487113 ). But if for some reason that's not be possible, I'd like offer other (serious) minor name changes.

    In accordance with some other thread I read out there I must change my name to something that includes "plan"
    DVDplanner (kinda lame)

    Maybe I can include zoning in there somehow?
    DVDzone? The DVD zone sounds like it would have to come with a list of uses.

    Sorry, I can't think of a minor name change, but the dragonslayer69 thing sounds cool.
    I don't pretend to understand Brannigan's Law. I merely enforce it.

    Dan, when I snailmailed you the check for my Cyburbia+ membership, I wrote in the card something like a baker's dozen ideas for my username change. Have you decided which one you're going to use?

    Eagerly awaiting your reply.

    I've had this handle for too long: XXdragonslayer69XX sounds very attractive.
