Just in case anyone is wondering who the hell I am
Psssh. I'm still calling you Smeth.
Fuck that... I don't think my brain can adapt.
Have you considered calling yourself siliconic instead? A little more appropriately alien perhaps?
What?!?!? Where am I???!?
Your avatar is fun.
Maybe we should have a thread for those of us that decided to change our names? I'm going to think of this as a fresh start and not reveal my old name even though it'd take about 5 seconds to connect my avatar to my old name.
My suggestion is to just put it in your signature for now. The thread might be a good idea, but I don't know if we want to make it public domain stuff. It might be abused, and I'm kind of sensitive to that kind of stuff.
I'm curious as to how you think it may be abused?
If someone knows that you're not using it, then that name is available for registration. Then there'd be the headache of who really is the real person.
Too much change... I think my head is going to explode.
You guys get to reinvent yourselves here. It is kind of the point, even I thought of changing from cynthetiq to something else.
Thank goodness I figured out the Carbonic because I thought I accidentally admin'd someone I shouldn't have.

yes, we can create another account and just archive the name.
It's going to take me a while to wrap my head around this.
Let's say there's someone with a pre-existing problem with a stalker. They change their name when they come here hoping for a clean break. That break over here becomes a little less clean if that thread's around.
Sound far-fetched? It's not. I'm dealing with fairly similar issue right now.
In my experience, 99% of all of our members that aren't spammers are good folks. That 1%, though, does not intend on being nice.
Having been in that place, I agree with Jazz.
Electronic Carbonic Supersonic!!!!
I DON'T LIKE CHANGE!!!! I am not smart enough to handle this.
That smeth guy was a real asshole. I'm glad he's gone. He smelled funny.
My OCD is going to go haywire with all of these changes. The universe just went on tilt.
Bye Smeth, we hardly knew ye...
Has anyone hugged his girlfriend lately?
Separate names with a comma.
