    From the General Forum ©mwmiller:

    'However, it would have been nice to have a registration "warning" advising me to take a few moments to select my username carefully, as it would be permanent and there would be no option to change it later.'

    agreed - but did any of us ever dream we would be here so long?

    Exactly right. I can't believe it will soon be 14 years for me!

    To be perfectly honest, usernames were the least of our problems in the first few days and weeks here. There were many things to be worked out which were more important.

    Some of us simply change our username anyway once we get tired of it. 😉😳

    The problem is a little worse now as people might come in from a social network sign up bringing their name with them.

    But, we will still change "real world names" on request still.

    Noted about the additional warning to be added.

    Thanks Russ! Adding the warning for newbies will surely be helpful!
    I don't have a problem with using my real world name, such as it is.

    I always pictured you as a big puppet named Johnny.

    I always wondered who pulled the strings 😉
