What would you change your BLF username to?

I use a bunch of different usernames on various websites.

On BLF, I have changed my avatar and signature so many times over the last 10 years.

But, I actually like my username, so I have no plans to change it.

 

I thought it would be interesting to see what others would change their BLF username to.

You can send a PM to Mr. Admin to do that, or just comment here on an idea you have.

This thread might inspire people to change their username, but I had a short chat with sb and he doesn't mind.

 

So, what would you change your BLF username to?  :BEER:

No plans on changing. I also use differing names elsewhere but i tend to make a strong decision and stick with it.
Same with avatar, i tend to not change it.
I prefer people keep their names and avatars to make it easier to recognize them.

Not going to change either. My nick is my trademark. Recognisable anywhere.

Now ya tell me!! I made this account with a different email, because I wasn’t satisfied with my original user name.

Its funny how flashlight addiction works!

Phase 1; Max Lumens

Phase 2; Max throw

Phase 3; Find myself actually only using Neutral High CRI lights with beautiful Beam.

Huh, I didn't know it was possible to change? I may consider this. I put next to zero thought into my username. My problem with my username is i think it looks like its pronounced "Artie-ette". Id probably go with "HankWangPleaseMakeaKR7orKRT8" or maybe something simpler.. ill have to think about this.

No plans whatsoever to change my username or avatar.

My initial username was (a bit) different. When I started to Google that (eh, my) name, just out of curiosity, I landed in another universe where the population consists of two or more consenting adults. All I needed was a PM to Mr. Admin. and he took care of that.

I find “djozz” silly, but liked it back then. Maybe I would change it to jos, which is my real name, but it is not important enough for me, so djozz it stays..

How did I come up with my username?

A couple of reasons...

I am a big fan of some Resident Evil video games, and the early ones took place in Raccoon City.

When RE4 came out, I longed for the days when the games took place in the United States.

Spoiler Alert: Raccoon City gets practically destroyed by the U.S. Government in the 1990's because it gets overrun by evil.

And I had a near-death experience in the 90's.

So it all sort of fits to call myself what I do.

I also like the Resident Evil movies.

Most of the time, when a video game series spawns a movie series, the movies are terrible.

The RE movies are actually pretty good for zombie flicks.

For some reason the name Ge Bort comes to mind but that would be silly.

"Ge Bort" is Swedish for "Give Away" according to the babel fish in my ear.
