Changing user name?

Post by RSmith » Mon Jul 02, 2018 12:19 pm

Is it possible? I was hoping to recover my former glory, whilst not disassociating my account from the posts I've made under this name.

I checked the control panel, and don't see the option. That probably answers my question, but I guess I'll post it anyhow; blast this damn keyboard with no delete key... ;-)

That's something that Shirley - who is the admin for the site - will need to handle. I don't see a way I can change usernames as a moderator.

Can I change mine to "Turd Ferguson", after the SNL skit?

Since we've now gone in this direction, does anyone know any Davids under the age of ~10? Neither of my kids have been in school with one yet.

Seems like every boy is named Conner these days, which sucks because every Conner I've ever met has been a complete shithead.

Wife's cousin's kid is David. Named after his grandfather.

With the exception of my neighbor who is the salt of the earth, I’ve never met a “Todd” who isn’t an asshole.
My avatar corresponds on my place in the Swamp posting list with the all-time Home Run list. Starting backwards from 100, #98 (actually in a three-way tie at 97) is Dave "The Cobra" Parker with 339.

I can refute those last two with the aforementioned grandfather and the other as one of my closest friends.

But the other Todd I know is a total douchenozzle for certain.

You know, come to think of it, I can't think of a single David who was a friend of my boys or played on a team with them. And my boys are now 17 and 14. I had never noticed that.

In contrast, at work (and at Swamp), I'm surrounded by other Daves.

Chief of my department insists on the full David. I still call him Dave. Definitely don’t trust him.

Seems like all kids nowadays go by the formal versions of their names. When I was a kid, there were Billys, Pats, Andys and Dannys. Now they would be called William, Patrick, Andrew and Daniel.

Or by different short forms, like Drew for Andrew. That's what my brother-in-law (who is literally half my age) does...

ETA: I was very confused by short forms as a child. My name, legally, is Johannes, but my Mum (English through-and-through) called me "Jack," whilst my Dad (an Afrikaner who immigrated in his 20s) called me "Hans." And my wife calls me "Johnny." So I suppose I'm still confused. ;-)

I have a Keith and a Noah (no readily available diminutive). I also have a Madeline who insists on the full name (“I am NOT Maddy!”). Benjamin is Ben to his family and Bench to his friends and Elizabeth is sometimes Beth to her family and Lizzy (heaven help her) to her friends.

My oldest was Joey to his grandparents when he was small and Siah to his siblings, but he insisted on the full Josiah by the time he was 10.

I chose my user name as a tribute to 2 of my favourite Cleveland Browns from way back in the day.

But with this asshole at the EPA, I was thinking I should change it...

Phil Lynott deserves any and all tributes. Did you know he was slated to play Jimi Hendrix in a movie, but died before it was made?

Damn good, especially for a 17 year old! We took a short road trip yesterday and he managed the playlist. We had Fleetwood Mac, Stevie Wonder, Queen, Dire Straits, and a lot of Dave Brubeck. I think I’ll keep him, even if he did throw Despacito in there.
