Help Me Decide Something

  • Pages:

I was going to put this in the reality corner originally but as I never post there I had no idea if this would be suitable for that section. I want you people to help me choose. I've recently been debating the possibility of using my name change. As I prefer to be called MVS (which is a common abreviation of my name) I think I will go with this if I choose to change my name. The problem is though, that once it's gone, it's gone. If I decide I don't like it I'm stuck with it. So I want you guys to decide whether I should go for it. As it stands, I have no problem with marioVSshadow. In fact I do still quite like it. The fact that I've been known online under this name for 4 or 5 years (I can't recall the exact period) I'm worried that people will mistake me for someone else or forget or whatever. Also I don't know if I should ditch it since marioVSshadow is the iconic name, not MVS.

Either way, what do you think? Also mods move this if it's in the wrong place. I have no idea where this fits.

HOW THE FUCK does that guy get a bajillion Underscores but I get banned for commas and have my Exclamation mark removed?

Disarray!

Yes that is correct.

Nah, just change it to MVS, I am pretty sure everyone will still know you.

Well this just takes the cake. marioVSshadow, if you're gonna change your name capitalize it correctly, or wait until' a Mod inevitably fucks it up and then change it to something not broken.

Disarray!

Maybe it's because I'm so used to your name, but I think that you should keep it the same. We could still refer to you as MVS anyways. Even though it's a very generic sounding name, as you said, it's also iconic.
Change it to Mario VS Shadow. Grammatically correct and all that jazz... could do with an exclamation mark though.

All in all, it's just a name, these things don't matter as much as you'd think. It's good to have an identity, but you are essentially still anonymous, legion, unforgiving, unforgetting. You should be expected.

I think you should keep your name the way it is, for three reasons.

One: There are already lots of people (active and inactive) who have abbreviated names; S.N.N., DSC and 0x400 to name a few.

Two: It may seem simple to those who think typing marioVSshadow is a really long and arduous process, but anyone who really can't is either totally new to the Central/computers in general, or they're under the age of 10.

Three: It'll be good for the experienced ones here, because they already know who you are and how you get along. But for new people, they'll get confused by people who will still want to type out your whole name like myself.
You know me if you know me.

What part of this quote you got presented a few days ago don't you understand

Allowed characters will be:
  • Letters, both uppercase and lowercase
  • Numbers
  • Following symbols: space ( ), comma (,), hyphen (-), apostrophe ('), period (.) and underscore (_).

Furthermore, user names must begin with an alphanumeric character and must include at least one letter.

Also, sometimes we are forced to remove the user name of some spammers because they contain obscene words. We usually do this by changing their user name to their ID. This is why nicknames must include a letter from now on.

Keep up this pointless whining and/or attitude and out you'll go.

Also, mVSs, keep the above quote in mind while picking a new name.

I understand it perfectly, but the reason behind the removal of certain characters, so I have been shown and told, is to make names easier to find with the Member List search. Queer characters mess that up. I think we can agree though, Disarray! with one "forbidden" character is much easier to find than 9[random amount of underscores]Z. I too quote:

So, being from the time when things weren't quite so strict on this site, I see no issue with said characters so long as not used stupidly, another example is the user =D=, who also had to change his name. This has also been illustrated by my mock account (which I may use more often for no reason) which had a large quantity of commas used.

Thusly, I recommend a system that limits currently "forbidden" character use or one that moderates for names which go against the ideals the restrictions were designed to reach. Rules I aint got a problem with, so long as the have a purpose, and the purpose is met.

Ok so people seem to think it'd be best that I don't change my name so I guess unless there are any other arguments that's what I'll stick with.

Also I want to clear a few things up quickly:

As I made the name up I'd say my capitalisation is completely correct. Sure the missing capital letter is grammatically incorrect but MarioVSShadow feels awkward to me.

Wow... I'm not even going to go into this statement...

Must you continue bitching about losing one little key in your username? You can't just, you know, get the fuck over it like most people would? All you do is complain about not having your username completely perfect, bash the mods because they don't cater to your every whim, and just post negative and rude comments all around.

That, and I'm pretty sure you aren't allowed text in your post header.

Back on-topic, I think you should keep your username mariovssonic. While changing it to MVS would be more iconic, it's not like no one can just substitute your username for mvs anyways. Just leave it and let that name-changer token be saved for another time.

Implying I was angry and not raising actual points in a calm and collected manner. This is only text that you are subconsciously tying to emotions and a tone of speech and/or way of speaking you cannot perceive or accurately ascertain. What I posted raised legitimate flaws in their rules which are both unnecessary and as shown, ineffective. If it affects me I am allowed to raise points and show it does such. This is not all I do, dealing in absolutes is both idiotic and flawed in itself. Instead of making jabs at me why not actually argue back in a proper dignified manner by raising counter points to mine, unless you cannot fathom anything above childlike accusation towards my character, something you know nothing about, and frankly, lest you own a degree in psychology, something you would still not understand however long you spent trying to achieve such a fruitless goal. In which case any and all comments are fundamentally unnecessary. Talk all you like though, I am one for free speech. Actual insults I have expressed to Mods are '0' zero, not counting one joke following a recent "Disarray!". I try to be helpful in the areas that require such, including this thread and other forums I frequent.

In short, you need to be able to analyse and argue to much greater effect.

Secondly, implying I care and implying I don't post that comment and the hyphens every time I write a new post.

Disarray!

I had a hunch but I decided not to act on it incase we were dealing with a genuinly idiotic user. As it turns out I wasn't far off in either aspect.

Disarray!:

Your behavior's been terrible as of late, and with the rereg stunt you're digging your own grave.



Everyone else: feel free to go back on the original topic now.
I say stick to marioVSshadow.

(See? Nice simple, short opinion :P)

Keep it like that because MVS looks a lot like GVS (not that that's a problem but it might be confusing, eh). :P
I don't normally get people that i know on this site confused with each other except for you two...
