User name change

I was hoping one of the mods could help me out. I'd like to change my user name since I recently decided to stop being a <i>total</i> pothead and haven't touched the stuff in over a month. I'd like something that allows me to be taken a little more seriously than a typical stoner, since my handle does carry a certain stigma with it. I was looking at KC13 or perhaps just Killer. Any help is greatly appreciated. I know I have a high post count, but I don't think there would be much issue with the change since although people know who I am on the boards, I don't have much of a relationship with any one person/people that could be affected.

The admins will sometimes cut you some slack if your name is really bad. The guy called Da Bomb was allowed to change his name after 9/11. I think you have a pretty good case. How many usernames here promote an illegal activity?

Maybe they'll change it to DeadlyWeed.

Normally we don't like to change names and if we do change it, it would have to be pretty close to what your current name is. For example:

B.A. Hist = B.A.
Mrs. Nesbit = Nesbit

Maybe KillerC? I will discuss in the super secret mod layer and let you know.

Something more light hearted is definitely the way to go. Like KillerFluffyBunnies.

Good luck. You'd be the first on the forum to be taken more seriously than a typical stoner.

From innocent weed smoking to homicide. A gateway drug indeed.

I suggest <b>KillerCannibal</b>.

If this is allowed, that's lame as hell, considering I requested a name change and was denied (rather coldly and flatly, at that) solely because I was a "long-time poster", despite not having any relationships or whatever as well, as KC mentioned.

Wanted to go from abrg923 to chibul923, to match my gamertag/other forum handles.

But next you'll be complaining that you just don't feel like killing anymore and you want a less bloodthirsty name like Moonbeam or some such.

Or perhaps 1585 4226 6573 5886. That has a nice ring to it too.

I asked before and never heard back from X. I requested my first name and last initial... oh well.

The OP reminds me of Johnny Depp: "I'll never regret this 'Winona Forever' tattoo!!!"

I would like to change my user name to dampened

damp·en (dām'pən) Pronunciation Key
v. damp·ened, damp·en·ing, damp·ens

3. To soundproof.


I've outgrown my need to impress people with the noise I can produce so I would like to abandon the name amplified.

No seriously, good luck killer with the name change.

does anyone think I'm happy as dick_grayson? Give me a break. Too much whiskey in my coffee and the next thing I know, I've signed up for some retarded message board as some fruity comic book character.

Hahaha. Yea... right. I just decided to stop for a while. I'll probably smoke again, just not as frequently as I used to. I still love to booze it up, though. just only in social situations.

I kinda like das' proposed moniker: KillerCannibal. Has a nice ring to it. And trust me, my love for weed may have been supressed, but my love of all things gory with never die.
