Um, i'm seeing a lot of people recently changing their screen names. Most of the ties they retain the avatar, but if you dont notice the name change, and then the avatar is changed, you meet a totally new person, and that is odd...

SO i had the idea of creating this thread (like the avatar thread) so people can infrom of their new names.

It would be nice if eveyone who changed their names in the past dropped by and wrote a list of the names used in their history here, just be sure :)

Example: Name1/Name2/Name3 with the last one being the actual name.


I hope this is not a bad idea

I hope Episode III is Called 'Revenge of the Sith'

Though I'm sure my mother called me by choice words as I was being born, here I used to be called Darth Wojo. I really hope I didn't confuse you all this time.

It's not bad idea.

I've been thinking of same kind of thread for a long time.

When I came back after a long break to this forum, I was confused, who was who here. Many familiar
avatars and recognizable stories/jokes but couldn't be sure because so many names been changed.

Haha, I don't think I ever made the connection that Indysolo was Neil. I remember that screen name, but the change must have happened while I wasn't very active on the board. Also, Jay, I never realized you used to have a different screen name...no wonder I couldn't remember you when I came back around the time the Indy box set came out! :lol:

I have always been Datameister. I've thought about jumping on the real name bandwagon, but I do like to retain a modicum of anonymity when discussing recording sessions, leaked sheet music, and other regrettably illegal dealings. ;) Not so much because of you guys - I mean, some of you know my full name anyhow - but because anyone could theoretically read these boards.

JoeInAR -> Joey

Although I always misread it as "JoeInAir" which I never "got" but didn't question, either.

Did Mark O have a different handle back in the early 2000s? I don't remember that name as being one that's been around for ages, though I know he has.

I'd actually like to change my handle to something else, for the same reasons Data ratted off, and since my nick is synonymous with my real name in these parts (if you're on my FB, you know why), but I can't think of anything good. Besides, the IP don't lie.

Not unless you added your last name, like I did. I think that's why I added my last name since there are two of us on here. :) Plus my avatar is a picture of me so I don't get people confused on who I am.

Ya I didn't realize your other nick name either Jay.

Wojo,

For Mark O, all though I'm sure he'll correct me if I'm wrong but I think his scree name has always been that.

Edit: I was also StarWarsFan2005 back in the day before I got hit with a big ban. That's when I head-butted with Neil and a few others back in the early days I first joined up.

I have always been indy4 and I will always be indy4. It is a tribute to the wonderful anticipation leading up to the release of the film. I might have picked a more general name if I would have known when I first posted here that I would be staying, but I'm having with indy4.

All one has to do is read his last post(s), if they are still available.



Otherwise, he ain't coming back.





For the record my earlier handle, before 2001, may have been ollie or marko.

It appears so. He made some odd, disturbing posts about the end of the world or something along those lines.
