200. geez
you ARE having a real problem with the name change. But believe me I and at least one other poster have done this for a good reason. This was not done for whimsy, believe me.

3. Nomad was my name because I felt like I didn't have a Country, under Bush
the new one just seemed to fit. It wasn't easy coming up with a new one. It took a lot of time and effort.

4. Hello!
My old name (actual name) was boring me, so I changed it to characters from Lord of the Rings and Star Wars.

171. You, sir, are correct.
It is pronounced "Keleborn," not "Seleborn." There's a pronunciation guide in the back of the Lord of the Rings books, and the C is always pronounced as a K.

It was that, "Raging Bender", or "Q".

"Q" would incite confusion from both the James Bond and Star Trek Next Generation fans...

"Raging Bender" might give the wrong sort of reaction considering the raging nature of some of my posts and I'm not a booze guzzling con-artist robot... (how bloody nonsensical that is, :rofl: )

"Tadpole of" just had that unique quality to it.

"Cousin", I dig that. :D

41. Ok this is confusing...
I was HuskerDU and wanted to change that as everybody thought I was from Nebraska. But the HuskerDU account was opened with my now ex-girlfriend's email address, so I couldn't change that one. I had the Heartbreaker account with my email address and decided to change my name from Heartbreaker to Jetboy.

69. Well it seemed great when I thought up HuskerDU...
I love the band and capitalized the DU part for Dem Underground. After explaining that I don't care for the Nebraska Huskers a hundred times, I figured that it was time to ditch that one though. Time for Jetboy to fly!

44. The new app: with more alcohol.
Edited on Wed Jan-21-09 05:15 PM by appal_jack
I'm still 'app,' but wanted a change to mark this big change our country has just experienced.

'Applejack' is of course hard cider that has been frozen and then the ice skimmed off to gain a higher alcohol percentage (often a good thing in my book). Also, my first serious girlfriend (high school days) once told me that she loved me more than Applejacks (the cereal, which she was fanatic about...) and that remains one of the sweetest things told me by anyone (alas, we broke up long-ago over non-cereal related issues).

And the southern Appalachians are my beloved home.

So appal_jack it is.

I'm often pretty casual about capitalization (user name included), but SallyMander just looks right to me.

Plus, you get to keep your rad steppin' 'mander and Aldo Leopold quote sig line.

Yesterday was lots of work for me and not much celebrating, but I did get to watch a bit of the inauguration at mid-day, and at the end of the day I hoisted a glass of red wine or two to the end of an error, and a brighter new era, so it's all good.

Why? It was impulsive. But I still like it.

Haole is often a derogatory term. But it's sort of an inside joke with my husband and I, because they always call him "little bra" (thinking he is an island boy) but I have Native American heritage while he is of Indian decent (from India). Sorry the explanation was so long.

227. I'll jump in here, too.
I was tired of being against something, and having the opposition be the first indication that people have of who I am, outside of each individual post. Does that make sense?

228. Part of the new name is one of my initials
The other is a character in a story:


The Wapsipinicon River flows through the heart of Iowa. Beginning in the northern most part of the state and eventually flowing into the Mississippi River, the legend of the rivers name is a love story similar to that of Romeo & Juliet.

Wapsi was a young Indian brave; Pinicon was a beautiful Indian maiden. Wapsi was one of the warlike Sioux, and Pinicon belonged to the equally hostile tribe of Sac. As fate wiled it, they met, fell in love but strong objections from both tribes deterred them from expressing their love to each other. Their love remained strong and the lovers found means of communicating their passion and they decided one evening to elope. On the very evening they were preparing to leave, Pinicon's father returned from a hunt and found the two together. Wapsi fled and Pinicon waited until her father fell fast asleep and she slipped away into the night to find her lover.

Guided by the October moon, the two reunited and Wapsi exclaimed, Not even death shall ever part us more. Let us fly to my northern home, where parental tyranny can never separate us and we can dwell in peace and harmony until the Great Spirit, Gitchie Manitou', calls us. Just then, they heard footsteps in the distance and realized that Pinicon's father and three braves were approaching. They ran in desperate flight away from their chasers. Once they reached the river bank, there was no time for reconsideration; the murmuring river was singing their funeral chant. Without a word, the devoted lovers clasped in each other's arms and plunged into the river. The enraged father reached the bank only to behold them struggling in the water, sinking and rising and with one last gasp sinking.

The couple decided they would rather die than be taken back and separated. They raced to the river, clasped each other, leaped into the stream and drowned in the swirling waters. The sorrowful Indian chief later named the stream Wapsipinicon.

229. Not really Russian or homeless
(at least for the moment... fingers crossed) so it seemed like a good time for a change.

I picked "bezdomny" from The Master and Marguerita after the poet who goes mad when he sees the devil. I was feeling a bit crazy when Bush was elected and managed to live overseas for around seven of the last eight years hence "homeless" for a while.

Not too sure about the new name, but I've been using it on other forums and I think I can live with it until 2012.

Everybody knows about velveteen rabbits, but who ever heard of a velveteen ocelot?

271. I confess I tried to think of a different user name, but just can't come up with one
I think I like mine...though I must say that all these new names here have me really confused!

That red signature line is mentioning complete bullshit...apparently it can be altered to whatever the user wants it to be, but I thought it was just to point out who the original user was?

277. Hyper-text... um, something...
Edited on Fri Jan-23-09 08:58 PM by SallyMander

Anyway, it's just a way of annotating things so you can write bold, italic, underline, or make things different colors.

To write in bold for example, you just make a b in square brackets, write whatever you want, then make /b also in square brackets. :)

ETA, when you make a post, there is an HTML lookup table so you can see how to do the different things!

I'm very glad you didn't change yours - it's one of my favorites. :D And if Underpants ever changed his, it would break my heart. :cry: His is my all-time favorite, always has been since I came to DU in 2001.

283. My ban was only for a week, not a month. :)
And I just EPIC FAILED. Utterly completely failed. My only consolation is I'm stuck here in the States with nothing to do until I fly back to London next Saturday and so it REALLY wasn't a good time to try it. :D But yeah, I suck.
