Poll question: DU Name help
Edited on Tue Aug-31-04 04:36 PM by tkulesa
Okay, so I've been here for years and nobody knows who I am. I don't post incredibly often.

But now that I've met a bunch of DUers face to face I might. I feel like I know DU a bit more personally now. It's a group of people now, not just a web site.

The problem:
When I signed up here at DU I used the most boring possible user ID. First initial, last name. I really should have a name here that people are likely to remember. Or at least one that sounds cool when I introduce myself to people.

So please help me out here. Which of these would you choose if you were me. Which name would you be most included to notice and respond to if you saw it on a post?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

3. I can't believe that's not taken
But nobody has that name here at DU.

Alas, I can't. I've never actually seen an episode of Ren and Stimpy. I'll have to leave that for an actual fan.

19. I could be wrong
I don't watch TV, pretty much ever. One or two cooking shows a month and an occassional superhero cartoon. So I'm not one to know about tv references.

5. That is already taken.
But whomever has that ID doesn't have any posts (according to the profile).

Do people sign up for names just to keep other people from taking them? That would be a really messed up thing to do. So of course I can see trolls doing that.

12. LOL!
I am definitely a cat person. I have 3. But I don't think anyone would ever think I'm fem.

I did look hot in drag the one time I did it. But that may be a story to tell over dinner. (I will try to organize a NY dinner gettogether after the convention has passed.)

That's a good idea, kinda. I'm not too butch either but... Thomcat is sort of along those lines and I'll bet nobody has it yet. I'll have to go check.

21. the_DU_member_formerly_known_as_tkulesa
probably too long and the acronym is not clever.

but won't you have to start your thing all over again, i mean, 0 posts?
i think in 'options' it says you can't change your name....

23. Yes, I'd go back to zero posts
But I guess that's not such a hardship. I'd just have to post more.

I'm thinking of it as incentive.

22. Yeah, first initials and last name is a really dumb idea for a username.

JP is a cool name. Nobody was going to call me "T"

And if anyone called me "Hey, Kulesa" (assuming they say it right) I'd think they're talking to brother.

JPGray definitely works better than TKulesa.

25. I know how you feel.
As far as being around a long time and not posting that much I mean. SupertHom sounds cool.
