Guys, call me "tolbs17" or "tolbs02". I'm tired of mrhappy1261 already. the username I picked back in June doesn't really make sense.

Should the letter T be capitalized?

Should I reedit this name of this thread or leave it the way it is?

I like being called "Tolbs". It's part of my real name and everyone calls me that.

No, I'm just saying, I didn't pick the best username for myself. I'm not always happy (and i'm sure everyone isn't) and i get a little frustrated when something bad happens.

I think there's a way you can request for an administrator or moderator to change your username. There's no way you can do it yourself though.

Or just be like Marf and create new accounts with other names.

Unless you actually want to remain a forum member, that is!

I wish you can like maybe every 6 months or a year or so, but yeah. It sucks that you can't do it yourself.

No, because i think you'll get banned for that. Just like one time I did see ParrDa and another account called "webny99" and I'm sure that person did choose webny99 because he wanted a better username.

^^^^^

Marf did get banned. That’s what my second sentence meant.

I know for a fact the moderators can change someone’s username. I have not had mine changed, but I know one user here who got a name change in real life asked the moderators for a username change and they granted the request. (I’m deliberately being oblique because it’s not my place to say who or why.)

Was not interstateng one that was a resurrected member who created a second account?   That question is rhetorical as the owner of the site told me that he was a troublemaker on MTR who came back to do his stuff again here.   He got banned when he used choice words to the owner, and was kicked out for good until he came back a third time as FederalHighway1 whom I believe another moderator found his MO out real quickly and was given the boot again.

I feel the same way when it comes to my username on Reddit. There is no way to change your name there but all I would miss is 1,300 "karma" points and a few original memes I've uploaded.

I use reddit too. I'm "daggerdude16". I wish you can change your name but i guess some websites it's permanent.

I'm sure about 75-90% of members on this forum know that I am autistic (high-functioning) and I'm sure they know that sometimes I can't comprehend what they are saying to me.

I, for one, don't keep track of which members have stated they're autistic or "on the spectrum" or whatever.  To me, you're just tolbs17 plus whatever info pops up underneath your username.

I don't recall offhand that you've been unclear in anything I've read.  But I simply don't keep track of who said what very closely.

Who thinks I should be called mrhappy1261 again? It seems like many of you like me called mrhappy1261 better than tolbs17. or maybe i should just be called MrHappy or just "tolbs" since 1261 are just random numbers. I'm not 17 years old anymore.

You should be called what you want to be called. You shouldn't put your handle or alias up to what is basically a non-binding vote.  Also...when you consider aliases, consider something that would remain permanent; not something that would be obsolete in a year.

It’s going to show multiple names anyway—when someone quotes one of your posts, the software uses the current username at the time of posting and doesn’t later change it to reflect your name change (this can be confirmed by looking at older quotes reflecting posts by a certain other longtime active forum member who changed usernames).

It's up to you, whatever you want people to call you.  It sounds like people call you "tolbs".  I'm not a mod (so I can't promise anything), but I would like to think there shouldn't be a problem if you wanted to change your user name from "tolbs17" to "tolbs".

He can't keep changing his name though, he's already done it once. My advice is to pick something so random (like, how will anybody ever figure out what "thspfc" means?) that there's never a reason to change it.

Don’t worry about the 17; people append numbers for random reasons. Or it could be a reminder that you joined when you were 17. But it is a burden on the mods to keep changing names. It’s one thing if the name is causing you emotional harm to be reminded of something, but you said Tolbs was part of your name anyway.
