How fond are you of your username?

I think it depends on whether you wish to go for Bad Post Doc or whether you wish to drop 555 and start afresh with something different - maybe on the Scotson theme of your website.

I've a ways to go yet but supposing I'm around long enough not to get banned or fall under a bus I'll be keeping my tag otherwise I'll just end up confusing myself

I didn't feel like it, so I didn't. What do you feel like doing?

You've already changed your username once, correct? Then I suggest not doing it again.

Too much is made of post counts.

No.

No.
I pay attention to people's registration dates. The people who all signed up in October 2001 all seem to have come from the older board someone here once linked to. Some of those people may never post in word association or make lots of pithy comments, but they've obviously been around for a longggg time, and I can respect that. Mickal, I would keep it if I were you; people are probably so used to calling you that, you know, like an old familiar sock. :wink: :D

I didn't think mickal555 has. You may be thinking of Majin Vegeta to Revolver. I may be wrong though.

*Edited to add - I kinda agree with 01101001. Besides, I think it confuses people more when posters change their names around. I had no idea that Kilopi was GrapesofWrath until quite a while later. It took me even longer to figure out he was now A Thousand Pardons #-o .

If you have to ask... no. :)

Basically like I explained above. People can notify other posters of the change in a post, but some don't read every thread so they may miss the notice of change. I did with yours. I knew your writting style was the same, but I didn't know you had changed your nic. No big deal, just took someone to finally point it out to me to let me know. :)

Hey ATP, weren't you also milli360 once? Or do I have you confused with someone else? :D

I voted "no" for the record. I wish I could have kept my registration date & postcount. :(

Incorrect

You are thinking of Majin Vegeta--> revolver, please don't confuse me with him :x . Remember me? You said hi once on paltalk, around november time. I was the first to leave a comment on your blog.

I want to do it I really do.... When I get to 3141(2)....

I'm quite fond of mickal555 and if I change it will be MickalXXX ore michael555 or something.

I actually like the sound of better phd than post doc

I'd put the change in my sig.[/quote]

NO! *holds up a "Mickal must Remain!" poster*

I've become rather fond of the odd name. And things like name changes confuse me.

Why do you think I've been hippietrekx since I was 11?! 8-[

Another vote for no. I second that name changes are confusing. It's not like post count really means anything anyway as they aren't a measure of the value you bring to the board. I've got a patenetly stupid username but as I've been smallfluffykat for a while in my online stuff I'm kind of attached to it even if it is embarrassing (my IMechE username is smallfluffykat!).

Plus, by keeping your Mickal555 name I can track your online shenanigans for years into the future.....bwah hah hah haaaaaa! [/evil genius laugh]

No. A few username changes are okay, but when it gets too much, one looses track. And until now, so many honourable members of the BABB have ignored the kilopi-limit that it cannot any longer be considered an inappropriate thing to do. Better to improve ones personality than ones username.

Surely you have already changed five-hundred and fifty-five times before?

Here's my little sister, rocknjizz (http://www.badastronomy.com/phpBB/profile.php?mode=viewprofile&u=5991). 8)

She registered, but has yet to post. I guess you can't be rocknjizz.

I'm getting close as well, although I post at a much slower rate than Mickal555. I don't expect to "go kilopi" myself. It would take me months to remember the new name everytime I logged in.

I voted 'No'. How you gonna catch up to ToSeek if you start again? [-(

I voted no, but do believe it's ultimately up to you.
If you do change it, I'd hope you keep some form of mickal/mick. I like you as that. :D

Makes regular posting hard, sometimes. :evil:
