  • Should I Change My Online Handle (aka In-Game Name)?

    First off I've had my current online handle for well over 10 years and up until recently it was unique. However, I've noticed several nicknames have replaced my name amongst the regulars here at TG in lieu of their inability to pronunciate my name. It was funny for a while, but being constantly referred to by some as "anus" really is starting to grind on my nerves (most notably [MENTION=8330]Dirtboy[/MENTION], though others also come to mind).

    So I've considering this somewhat seriously and am thinking of changing my handle to: SquirrellyAcorn. I feel this still gives me a rather unique name and retains some cuteness factor that I personally find enjoyable (and thus can create some interesting signatures for).

    What do you guys think? Should I do a name change?

    Nah don't change your handle just cause others can't handle it. Just tell them what you preferred to be called. If they are not mature enough to do that, do they belong in TG?

    Besides, you've made it quite easy for them:

    Though if you do change it to that and when you get killed in games I can say, "Squirrelly no!" :D

            Of course you shouldn't change, unless you yourself want to.

                How many times have i to say to people to call me Mark instead of "markov, Markol, Markoth... etc ".

                Just keep your name and force them to say it right with a face full of lead all the time :P

                    Man don't change it. People mispronounce even my name, but whatever. They say AEnon or Aniin or AAnon. It's AnonBot like Anonymous-robot. The Anon is like Anonymous yet they pronounce it in very strange ways. It's really simple yet quite often it is mispronounced too. For me I normally just say Acreo and leave out the last bit because it's easier to say quickly when playing. I say keep it.

                      Dirtboy would find a way to mispronounce your new name.

                        Darn, think you is right on that. He would find new (enjoyable to him) ways to mispronounce my new name anyways.

                        :) At least there seems to a general consensus for me not to rename myself. I'll listen to that consensus and keep my current handle. Thank you everyone!

                        Edit: Drats! The forum stopped me from thanking everyone with +rep. Guess it doesn't like my homebaked cookies after all!
