I changed mine once, but quickly changed it back. It's not something I talk about much. It was not well received.

Did it have something to do with that somewhat obnoxious happiness and sunshine nonsense you used to be high on?

Re: Any old timers still around?

I've been TorontoTrekker since I first joined. It's pretty descriptive of me, although the convention I volunteer for, which used to be called Toronto Trek, changed its name to Polaris in 2007.

If I were to change my name, the only other name I use online is a nickname that was given to me by a bartender at the place I used to hang out at, when I was telling him about how I was working on three conventions and trying to get a fourth one started. He said, "Your problem is, you're the boy who can't say 'no'." That's how I acquired the Livejournal handle "boywhocantsayno", and I use it in a few other places as well. I enjoy letting people misinterpret its meaning.

(Though I probably shouldn't use it on dating websites... )

I've been LeadHead my entire 12 years here, besides the occasional holiday name change of course.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I use a different name on every board. It makes it easier to sort my contacts, PMs, mails etc.
And of course every name has a set of different passwords which I change at random intervals. Call me paranoid, but at least this way none of my accounts has ever been hacked.
My current username on this board is the result of a late night chat in a somewhat giddy atmosphere, a botanical tongue twister and the global warming.

Re: Any old timers still around?

Yeah I've never changed my name, though sometimes I've been tempted to request a space being added between 'The' and 'Brew'. I didn't realize you could put in spaces when I joined 11 years ago.

I sort of wish there was a way for me to go over my entire post history. It would be an interesting time capsule.

^ I think you can go back to 2008. Posts from 2007 seems to be sporadic. Too bad I can't go back to 2006, the year I finally signed up.

I would love to do this as well. On this same note, I do sort of miss the old warning utility that would link you straight to posts that people (not just yourself) were warned for. I get why the got rid of it, but there was a quiet amusement that could be had with it when the mood struck.

Out of curiosity how many other people here have changed their screenname over the years?
I've thought about it, particularly since the second half of my screen name was a shortened version of a name I used in IRC channels before registering here and it never made much sense here. I've never been able to come up with something new that I actually wanted to use, though, so I've never bothered.
Interesting, I always assumed your name intentionally translated to "psycho dad", since pere is father in French.

Re: Any old timers still around?

I started on the board using my real name, at the time I was just posting in the trek only boards.

Once Google started indexing board posts, and my name is uncommon and easily searched, I moved to my more common handle.
