Changing screen names

Postby Blurry » Wed Oct 19, 2011 9:21 pm

I just noticed that Arc changed her screen name, and I'm wondering how I can do the same without having to create a new account? I dug through my User Control Panel and didn't see the option.

I should be able to do this. Maybe in a couple of hours. I'm still working. PM me the names you want. Unless another mod shows up first.

Once Monooq changes his moniker, I want to change mine to Monooq.



Thanks.




Please don't change my name, I'm only joking, and I am 180% happy with my current moniker.

No can do, fuse. People are already confused enough when they converse with the original Monooq.

"Someone may object that the successful revolt against the universal and homogeneous state could have no other effect than that the identical historical process which has led from the primitive horde to the final state will be repeated. But would such a repetition of the process--a new lease of life for man's humanity--not be preferable to the indefinite continuation of the inhuman end? Do we not enjoy every spring although we know the cycle of the seasons, although we know that winter will come again?" (Leo Strauss, "Restatement on Xenophon's Hiero".)

I should probably change mine to Amosis...

I've updated the member page of unofficial ILP Wiki to reflect name changes.
Perspective Logic - (Unofficial) ILP Wiki
Please put me in your ignore list if you don't like what I write. I don't mind it at all
Since it's not my intention to increase the suffering of others, please don't read my posts if you don't like them.
I do think existence, awareness, material, beings, and humans including you and me to be insane and stupid for structural reasons and from observable behaviors.
I don't think most humans have the preference for logical honesty/integrity that would make us to think in reasonable manner.
I don't think most of us have enough emotional stability to face simple anxiety and fear including existential anxiety.
And I like to think and dig things many of us don't really want to see.
Combination of these may make some of you uncomfortable, irritated, and turn into emotional, irrational, and even fanatic mental state.
So, please ignore my posts if you don't like them or if they make you feel uneasy.

Thank you for your understanding. :)

What about Titles/Rank and that sort of thing? I generally wouldn't care as I assume those are modified for/by seasoned members, and at the discretion of mods. Plus, it is a post based system, which makes the ranks more novelty than anything.

However, in my case, I honestly don't feel deserving of the title. I lack any talent as a philosopher, try as I might. If there are people looking at rank as a measure of what to expect, I'll only serve to disappoint. I'm a sideshow, a detour.

It really makes no difference in the scheme of things, and this is by no means an urgent request. I'd prefer something more along the lines of "student", "hypocrite", or even "dick head" [if you find it fitting]. Assuming this is an agreeable request. What does one call a self-loathing cynic, aside from "weak"?

Flannel.........never mind.

As for you, calrid, i think we sent your username to Message Board Hell, after torturing and maiming it beyond recognition.

I'll look into it when I have a chance.

Candy. I want candy.

I'm just giving you giving you guys a hard time and ...ranting, I guess. I mean, I am a self-loathing cynic, but I could care less what my rank says. Although, I would be curious what label you might give me, given the choice.

But, to answer your question "SonOfABitchBastard" will do nicely. Thanks.

If this doesn't cost money I wouldn't mind having my name changed to 'Authority Figure'


That would be funny.

Yes I was Sidhe. I've never made any secret of it, and have stated it several times in the past.

Besides I asked to be banned before you banned me if that counts for anything.

Names and ranks can be changed easily (it's actually easier to change name than rank...), and for free on request. There are a few ranks that are automatically triggered by making a certain number of points, but those are overridden by a custom rank.
