just wondering if it's possible for an admin to change my user name.

if so, i'd like it to be CiNYC just to maintain a bit of anonymity. not trying to hide from anyone though :)

thanks.

Look at your name - I think you already are!

Now kids post an anouncement telling the world about your name changes. It is only polite.

Oh gee if I could change my name it would be, well I don't know, give me a while.

I kinda like you the way you are Irish. But if I was going to suggest one: Try on ANGUS!

If you go with that, here's an avatar option.

We could turn this into the "First Annual Rename ALL Cyburbians Contest" Why stop at renaming the Cardinal. Everyone needs to be someone else every now and then you know.

Now, who should I be?

Oh god, no. I'd never be able to figure out who everyone is anymore.

[PBS Speak] But PG - we can't expect people who feel "trapped" in a name because of society’s intolerance and traditional role and gender expectations to stay in an ill fitting name without getting deeply psychologically messed up. (Ashcroft's fault) We need to empower their need to explore alternative identities. We need to nurture, not lecture. [/PBS Speak]

Yes, I am serious. And yes, I will properly re-introduce myself.

Senor El Guapo: I am amazed and yet terrified by the strange and mystic powers you hold but administor in such a benevolent fashion. I too am considering a name change to reflect my current geographic location--or maybe for use as a chick magnet....thinking.

I have been also considering a name change (sorry PG :p), but haven't come with a good replacement of this childish nickname I've always been dragging.... Any suggestions?

Only if Dan approves. I could have a sign up list for a Costume party - Change all the names for a week and let people pick their avatars for the party. Then I could change them all back. But it is a lot of work.

The Delta Tau Delta thingy is just a joke based upon the movie Animal House. Pick your own name my friend.

Yeah, you enjoy that while you can. Once you hit about 25-26 you're gonna have to start working on staying skinny. Unless of coursr you decide to pick up a nasty drug habit. That will keep you thin with no work at all. ;)

As for names, I think I'll keep my current moniker - even though it is kind of lame. Who knows, maybe I'll change it to something that makes me sound real compter savy - because I'm not. Maybe something like BiS22xfs5 or even Linuxfukr. :p

Steven Koren is George Costanza's choice to get his deceased fiance's scholarship fund because Steven wants to be an Architect and later decides on Urban Planning which pisses George off.
