Default Re: Is my username that hard?

I agree with you. Another thing you could add to that list would be make up a nickname. I have nicknames for tons of people. [I'll use WhiteTerrierFan because hopefully she won't care] I call her WhiteT. It's just her name basically abbriviated. Or you could completetly make something up. SnS for SweetnSpicy. So nicknames are also a great choice. Good thread! [Rep]

Default Re: Is my username that hard?

I always feel terrible when I call someone by the wrong username on here, so I always check to make sure I have it right. I sometimes get my name misspelled, and it usually doesn't bug me, but I feel great whenever I am called by my correct username.

Default Re: Is my username that hard?

The only time I think someone misspelled my name was when they wrote JBONE93, instead of JBONE92. It didn't really bother me, but it is nice to be referred to as your actuall username.

I just avoid the chances of misspelling someones username so I just quote them

I completely agree. I almost always ask someone if I can use a nickname for them before I start using that nickname.

Default Re: Is my username that hard?

Yea, if a person has a long name I usually ask them if they have a nickname, like 0000005 is 05.
I don't mind it when people call me Gigi, though, because that is my most common nickname.

Default Re: Is my username that hard?

totally!

I get 'harry potter' and 'hpharypotter' and 'hpharypoterhp' alot.
most of all, it annoys me so much when someone calls me 'harry potter person.'
I have several nicknames.

I can go by 'hp', 'Meredith' (my real name, if they know it), 'Mere Mere', or 'Coconut'.

mostly its hp or coconut.

but I don't see why they call me any of those at the beginning when they can call me hp! I mean its in my username twice.

Default Re: Is my username that hard?

I have been called "tokyo pose", "toyota rose" , "tokyo rice" etc etc
Personally it did not bother me, I actually thought it was funny. However, I can see why it could be annoying to other people. Your name is something that represents yourself, so we should respect that fact and try to pay a little bit more attention when we spell names.

I am a lousy typist, and English is not my first language, so I try to be very careful when I post. But I am sure I have made a lot of mistakes. This thread is a great reminder for us to be more careful in the future. Thank you so much!
