People that have changed their username have a reason; just like those who haven't (changed) have their own personal reasons.

those of you who don't work in the industry are not likely to be impacted by lurkers. But, for those of us who do, be warned: lots of SAM types lurk here, and what you say (if they can match your username to your real name) can and will be held against you.
yes they do, but its pretty obvisious to anyone in the know what my real name is...but I have nothing to hide so I could care less.

This should not be big deal.

#1. 97% of the Epic posters are nice polite people and many of you will know the reference to the (97% devil) of whom I speak.



#2. Each time someone has tried to come on and play hide the bacon they have been smoked out.

#3. You can always ask and someone will know who someone is and it's not like this stuff warrants academic research.

#4. If someone banned comes on from a different computer under a different monicker .... and .... they behave and play well in the proverbial sand box .... how much in life can you control? The fate of the free world does not hang in the balance.



soooooooo ... WingedGodoftheSnows ... or GodsGifttoSkiing ... ??

Does Yuki mean Yoda in Eskimo or something?

I think Laurel Hill Crazie has the right idea.

New Rule:
You must keep something of your old name if you want to change to a new name, Yoko Nolo, Si Si, BushwackerfromPA, Lars2you, etc.

Ok, let's see some of that epic cleverness now ::

Admittedly, this thread had me scratching my head since X-Eastcoaster is now RichieRich. Maybe he should X-Richie, or RichieCoaster?

I think U.P. Racer would be okay if he changed to UP Yours. Hows that for creative?

Guilt by long term assocation ... ... it means snow in Japanese.

My first wife was raised in Japan and we had a mini husky named Yuki. The pooch and I would play in the snow and stuff and wifey started a dual reference ... she would say in Japanese upon our return ... "My Yuki inu (dogs) are home" ... so we both became her snow dogs ..

Later, I was a "dojo rat" and one day drove thirty miles in a blizzard to train. When Sensei saw me pull in he started a rant .... "Yuki, Crazy Man .... go home, go home"

The following day, he pulled me out of line and began to smack me about in front of class .... "Yuki! Crazy man, no sense, (smack), crazy (slap) .. so, my adopted name (Hideo), went by the wayside and was replaced by Yuki .... that most thought meant ... "Crazy Man" in Japanese .. I just never bothered to correct them and I kinda' liked it.

name edit?

I would like to drop the "from PA" from my user name, since I no longer use it except on this forum. How do I do that without re-registering?

Years ago I started using the "Stan from PA" name on a forum that was based in another state, where I wanted to make it clear that I was not local and didn't always understand the local references. Now, I am just Stan on forums I participate in (being an old fart and not in need of an alternate handle).

Thanks

Stan

You need to ask someone, like me, Cirquerider, or SSH. You can shoot one of us a PM with the exact way you want it and it can easily be done. I'm assuming you just want Stan, not "Stan from". We'd see if Stan is available and make the change.

Ditto for me. It would only take about 0.06 seconds for anyone with a brain to figure it out.

Those of you that know me for real know what I'm talking about....

but I used to post under my actual, first and last name. I don't really say anything here I don't say to SAM's "face," but I prefer the somewhat anonymity that a alias gives me. That way, only the members/(and especially) lurkers who I have told know that it is I for sure.

Except for the link to the instructor list. :
