Oh man, don’t tell me I can change my user name or I’ll be changing it every day.
I’ve never been satisfied with any user name I’ve ever used for anything.
I’ve changed my YouTube name probably a hundred times.
I’ve finally just settled on my initials.

Okay, you can’t change your username.
Ever. Innocent

Lol, at least with my initials I don’t feel the awkwardness and second guessing about trying to be funny or cool or something.

I choose a name then build a brand around it so changing it would be too awkward.

I do sort of the same thing.

I choose a username, and then my avatar and signature are usually based on my username.

I basically create a theme.

Also, my username never has anything to do with the website--for example, Resident Evil has nothing to do with flashlights.

I’ve done that numerous times as well, but the self doubt still kicks in and I abandon it for something else.

Yep, I saw that CRC are you initials.

HKJ did the same thing, but he actually tells everyone what his full name is.

You gotta be pretty brave to use your real name online.

(I wouldn't do it.)  :THUMBS-UP:

I created an email address to give to people on forums if they want to talk about anything that doesn't fit on that forum.

According to that account, my name is Cobra Commander.  :D

Raccoon Cobra Commander City. Odd name but it could work.
On the other hand Batman Bin Suparman is a real name LOL

I have changed user names lots of times in the past 14 years. Other peoples, not mine. Because they were inappropriate. On an eastern hemisphere based international computer security product forum.

My nick is the same in several fora, and I have not had the desire to change it.

 

There is a website for a non-profit advocacy entity where I use my real name when I post reader comments.

I use my real name on Facebook, and I use my real first name on dating websites, but other than that I choose fake names.

Raccoon City is a fictional city that got destroyed, so it's super-fake.  ;)

What I would change my username to right now is easy: x-raccoon city.

 

In the last week I have had to "relocate" 5 of those nasty bandits because of them destroying all of our eggs as soon as they were laid. Someone told me I had a raccoon city here. So I said no he's a BLF member and he is not from around here. I got a strange look because they didn't have a clue about the REAL raccoon city here.

 

BTW - the eggs are painted turtle eggs buried in the ground. 5 or 6 nest have been destroyed this year already.

 

RC - good timing on the question.

It’s just a username, not something very important…..

mine is a nickname I got from an ex long time ago, it just kind of stuck and I’ve been using it on the internet for some time now.

Maybe some day I’ll get a great brain-fart and find something brilliant to change it into but until that moment this one can stay. The first forum I’ve ever became a member I used my real first name, it’s a Dutch name so most couldn’t make anything from it and some where disappointed to learn it was just my real first name.
