"X until 2:56 PM EDT" - what? (in Public Record)

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] May 3 2006 5:33 PM EDT

I would like to know what admin changed my name or if something happened to the server. I would also like to know why.

I want answers.

Mem May 3 2006 5:35 PM EDT

The man wants answers! He doesn't want to be consumed by my colossal shadow any further!

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] May 3 2006 5:35 PM EDT

I see all of a sudden there has been a 2-character minimum put in place. Since this rule just got applied after I changed my name already could an admin change my name to "XO"? I don't want to wait 30 days.

Thread moved to Public Record.

Full Admins. will be notified of situation. Please wait patiently for a response.

I guess Jon has put in place something to prevent single letters being used as user names - thank goodness.

As for changing your name back. Well, as I say to my kids, "I want, won't get. Please and thank you works wonders..."

Perhaps Jon or Bart will change it for you :p

"thank goodness" I'm a little confused as to what great harm
was cause by single char screen names...

Sure he could of said please, but someone also could have let him know why his name was changed as well...

Just be happy that we were not in a creative mood ;)

Why did you have to sabotage 'Search by user' ?

Ox [StephenMelinda Gates Fund] May 3 2006 6:15 PM EDT

Hah, well I named myself according to the rules, as the two character minimum was set after I had named myself. So I think I should be able to change my name to whatever I want before 30 days come by again.

Oh well thanks, maybe Jon will help.

Maybe you should be thankful. It could have been so much worse.......

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] May 4 2006 6:37 AM EDT

yeah you could've been named sue ^ :P

QBJohnnywas May 4 2006 6:41 AM EDT

I think everyone should be named Sue for just one day. Just to see what it feels like!

DD34isback(justkidding) [Severswoed Accounting] May 4 2006 6:46 AM EDT

you know how long that would take...?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 4 2006 7:11 AM EDT

Not if it was all on the same day! ;)

QBJohnnywas May 4 2006 7:12 AM EDT

Would you be a Sue or a Susan GL? Or maybe a Susanna? That has a certain flamboyant air.... ;)

QBBarzooMonkey May 4 2006 10:08 AM EDT

QBSusannaLoser. Kind of elegant, no?

I should be more careful - I'll end up with SusieMonkey or something... :P

QBJohnnywas May 4 2006 10:12 AM EDT

BarzooSusieQ, you should be careful about what you say!

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] May 4 2006 10:28 AM EDT


Mem May 4 2006 1:47 PM EDT

I'd wager that you should be careful as well, lest your name becomes Johnnyis.

AdminShade May 4 2006 1:49 PM EDT

just have yourself named Ox then :p
