Has anyone noticed that all the new members these days seem to have nospacenumber123 names?

ex: SazaJ,  StevenKump,  tundemustsurvivefamily,  katcrazy6,  boffa81,  gharit,  BluEyeDevil,  SeaWasp

have the rules changed for screen names, or are people just strange? I wonder…

I know that when I first had to find a screen name when I was about 14 ...and it was advised that a word be coupled with #s, so that it would be unique.  So I was Rooskie417.  After a while though, I realized my own first name was unique enough, and just used my own name.  Also, if your nicknames and words were unique enough, numbers weren’t needed.  I also go by SilverXeno.  I’ve never had to put numbers after that to make it unique at another site.

I think it’s just one of those things that you learn about.

Ick, I’d hate to have an sn with numbers.  If a name is taken, I don’t want a copy of it.  I wonder if there are any Citizen_Premier1980’s out there… I doubt it.

Wow. I just discovered that while looking up my SN on yahoo.  I wonder if my dad had one of those in his office years ago and that’s where the name came from… intrigue!

Just for info, you can change your screen name.  It’s in your preferences.  It can be different from your member, or login name.

It sure doesn’t seem like it—I’ve done google searches for “citizen premier,” “citizenpremier” and “citizen_premier” and they haven’t found anybody but me.  You don’t have to have numbers in your screen name to have it be original!
