Name Change Request

Post by Sudy » Mon Oct 23, 2017 12:49 pm

I wasn't certain whom specifically to PM (if anyone).

Would it be possible to have my handle shortened to just "Sudy"?

Thanks!

Hah! I'd be tempted were it not likely to cause some Tuvix-inspired confusion involving Mr. Fed.

I live on that stuff during allergy and cold season. Your legislators need to get real. Last time I was visiting my wife's hometown in SD and caught a sniffle, I had to submit to a DNA swab before the pharmacy would hand over the goods. Now I suspect corporate pharma has Sudyclones in development, and that's just not good news for anyone.

We should have approved the name change in principal, and then made an open vote on what said name would be (a la Boaty McBoatFace).
No.

Due to the high volume of name change requests, the Penny Arcade forum mods would only have short windows of time where such requests were allowed. To further discourage people from making requests, their policy was to flip a coin for each request: heads you get the new name you asked for; tails the mod gets to make up whatever they want and you're stuck with it.

I would seriously like to change my username (not just here, everywhere that I use this silly name). If it's a big pain for you guys to do it, no worries.

Well, if you want me to change your name everywhere, I'll probably need the sites you want to change, your e-mail accounts, and your passwords. It'll take a while while I figure out whether I can change the name on my own or if I need to petition the admins of the site to change it.

If you just want me to just change your name here, I'd need your new desired name and a carton of Marlboro reds.

Carpet_pissr emailed me and told me he wanted his name changed to Ferret_Fuckr. Seriously. You should do it right now. Totally legit.

Hmmmm. Not bad, but I’m sure we could do better. It DOES have a nice ring to it though, and the alliteration doesn’t hurt.

Maybe I’ll let OO (re)name me.

FWIW, Wife thinks Carpet_pissr is a hilarious name, and I'd hate to have to tell her that it is no more. I vote for keeping it.

From a recent interview with Pope Francis: “I have a dogmatic certainty: God is in every person’s life. God is in everyone’s life…Even if the life of a person has been a disaster, even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs or anything else—God is in this person’s life. You can, you must try to seek God in every human life.”

Wise words of warning from Smoove B: Oh, how you all laughed when I warned you about the semen. Well, who's laughing now?

I'll just assume you mean "fitting" due to my profile pic. :?

I have not, nor plan to in the future, micturated upon a carpet, rug or any other indoor flooring material, to the best of my knowledge. If I have, good luck proving it.
