when i used to play online games i came up with thousands of names that i was always hopping from one to the next after a couple of weeks. Then i decided that it was stupid and promised myself that i would create a name (not saying how :lol:) that has a meaning to me (and its not about some village in sweeden :| ) and that i would never change it as long as i could remember it! :)

No... I've thought about it - once - but I had actually given it lots of thought before picking my name. It's merely the initials to by penname, and I simply added a '2' to it (like it's Jr. or II or something similar) because my accounts include fanart and it is done purely for my own personal enjoyment. That was always the reason I've been so hesitant about making any new account in the first place -- my first email address was okay; my second one... very childish. These days I actually think before typing a suggestion for an email. XD

I think... it'd be nice to have the option for paying members, but shouldn't ever be implemented for free. I know one I -might- want to change to if I had the opportunity, though.

lol, maybe you could charge a few bucks to change the name, to make some extra money and discourage changing it often.

No, I'm been `MonTemplar` since way back in 1990, around the time I first got access to Usenet newsgroups. :D

I've even had someone pretending to be me on Slashdot last year, using the username MonTemp1ar (note the one in place of the lower-case L), but I got rid of him by taking the mick and pointing out that he couldn't match my wit. :pointandlaugh:

A useful benefit of this is that I can easily find out what I was up to back in the 1990 by typing my username into Google - great, now that my memory is failing me.... :doh:

Mostly because artistic opportunities are beginning to present themselves and, while the DeviantArt gallery is fab at showing off your art skills, I would like to change it to something less poncy... something more neutral and/or professional. :D

Hell yea, I absolutely hate my current account name. When I signed up I just used the same throwaway name I had used elsewhere, not thinking I'd get so involved. Now ... with seniorship and two stints as an admin behind me, I can't exactly ditch this name. Too much history that I'm attached to. :hmm:

I'm not sure what I'd change it to, though ... I want ~rob, but `r0b would kill me if I got that. :giggle: Maybe my alternate identity ~TempusRob since that's more consistent with all the other accounts I've made elsewhere in the past few years...
