Similar names/accounts.

Postby Ice On Fire » Fri May 08, 2009 4:17 am

This is starting to get on my nerves!
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=18997
memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=20129
Is there any need of this :tellme: I don't know if it's the same person or not, if so why all of the accounts, if not the same person could someone think of an original username instead of copying someone else's?

It has been a pet peeve of mine for a while now. The time "On Fire" was added to another persons name made it look like I was using an alias.
I like Royal, but I don't want him anyone to be confused with anyone else. What if there was another fd, JLP, Inny etc...see what I am getting at.

The new user was royal. for some reason the board will not allow people to change usernames, even though it is set up to do that. We tried to change it for him with another name a few days ago but there was something the board would not allow.

then when you raised this point I thought it must have allowed this one so change his name that way.

Basically I can change usernames via the admin panel. However why people cnnot do that is beyond us for the time being.

Of course now the other account does not exist.

I am glad it is Royal after all. It would not have taken a rocket scientist if he posted the same way but then again a few months back someone tried to copy his posting style. Did not last long but when someone does that or has quite similar usernames it bothers me.

Hmm- I might consider a name change, to match my usernames on other forums- although I bet I'll still be called Dusty! :lol:

You better change it again. Jake is well known all over the internet as a Queen fan and I know him very well. You are not, nor will you ever be Jake. Please change it to something else. :?
