Forum Usernames - How Did You Choose Yours?

Recommended Posts

dsrtdwg1......I have used this ID on all the forums that I am a member of. All were off road dirt bike forums to begin with, then any other that I happened to participate in. Kept it simple, I have fallen on my head more than once. My name is Wendell Clark, no I did not play hockey.

Because Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious Scott was already taken.

Big difference between forums and other social media. On social media it is generally all about being famous and so you want to use your real name. On forums people much more prefer to protect their p

I don't have a problem with people being anonymous if that's what turns them on, but on some other forums certain low life use it like a little kid throwing rocks over a fence. Cowardly 'no names' hea

Hi there,

Way back in January of 2003, I chose the name my dad always called me for my username, Lanny. My mom put the name of Lance on my birth certificate, but my dad always called me Lanny, so that's the story of my username.

All the best,

The night I came up with my user name I had received the ashes of my dog back from the vet.

Valen was the second dog that I ever had and he was the best part of my life.

Smarter than most people and could find anything that you would ask him to find.

With my old detector he actually helped me dig up what was under the ground and then keep on digging.

The dog in the photo on the boat is not him and he is not as smart as Valen.

It is a way for me to never forget my baby that always loved me and everyone he met.

I can't lay claim to anything clever or imaginative...it's just a reflection of my former life long ago!  😉

When i was living in Sedona AZ i was part of the local mountain bike crew that put Sedona on the map. We all had nicknames they was Amp, bogus dude, doc, trouble, dangerous dave, Rama, and the list goes on. I was hardtime and when i bought my first house in cottonwood it was on Hermits ln. So i just put one and one together.

      There was an article a few weeks ago about a find that needed to be identified.
      It was a square pendant with some gold flakes inside.
      Several people had seen them before and there was a link to the item.
      I have someone that is wanting to find a couple of them, and would like to point them in the right direction.
      Thank you, Caleb

      I just upgraded the forum to the next major release, 4.5.2. This time they did some changes to the overall look and feel. Most of the changes are improvements but the new high contrast colors and bold fonts are almost too bright, too sharp. The header went stark white so I dialed that back to blue. Anyway, I'll be tweaking the look and feel for a few days. A couple of the old add on modules are now out of date so need to deal with that also.
      For any nerds out there, here is the forum feature change list. One new thing is there will be a new mobile app. If you visit lots of Invision powered websites (like Chris', Bill's, and Rob's) it may be of interest.

      The old color scheme. Less bright colors, blue text instead of black and white, more of a gray background.....

      I enjoyed reading the topics under this forum as I have a couple entry level units un addition to my Equinox. But I have not been on this site for a couple of months and can’t seem to find it. It seemed pretty active.

      Here is a short list according to Alexa. The large number reflects the total internet ranking, Google being #1. Other sites you might be familiar with did not make the top ten but you can go to Alexa to see where they rate. This website has been on a tear rapidly increasing in popularity for some time, and I thank you, the good forum members, for making that happen!

      Enjoying everything but one person’s posts rub you the wrong way? Go to your settings in upper right and look for “Ignored Users”.
      Ignoring a user allows you to block some or all of their content from showing. Users are not notified that you are ignoring them.
      Just add the user name you wish to ignore to the list accessed under “Ignored Users”.
      I prefer people not complain about or directly address other people about their behavior on the forum. Don't take moderation tasks on yourself... leave that to me. If you have an issue contact me directly about it, or use the ignore function.
