We all change our names because we hate you.

Seriously though, I don't know :) I think people didn't think their initial alias through very much, so they wanted to be something cooler. Also if you have a bad reputation changing your name can give you a new lease on life. Sometimes.

I don't get it either...

Flamey June 16 2006 7:30 PM EDT

LOL, that is so funny, i don't get it either, some people don't like themselves, thinking if they change their name they will change themselves.

If you think it is bad now, You should have been here when you could change your name every 48hrs(And some did) or before the Mushu rule when you could change it as often as you liked.

Because they get accepted into the Dotson family.

Flamey June 16 2006 7:57 PM EDT

the people that have replied to you now, haven't changed their name. so ask people that have.

I'll change that!

Well, to become my first to name changes (after turning into plain old th00p) was because I was paid each time. Now, I'm in the same family as two of the coolest Scots in CB! (Plus, Mrs Beee is my unofficial grandma so it's all good)

I only do it to avoid being confused with Verifex.

Mem June 16 2006 10:42 PM EDT

My first name changes were only for ease of viewing (memnot -> Memnot -> Mem). After that I just got silly. Both changes since were just jokes. I think you might find that I go back to three letters very soon...

who changed my name?

Wasp [Demon Forging] June 17 2006 11:21 AM EDT

I can't remember me changing my name, apart from when I had {Forger} at the beginning of it. I like Wasp so I keep it as that, also I usually keep the same name because people know they can trust Wasp because he's oh so good : )

I change my name to give everyone something to laugh at... or a reason to laugh at me... either one :)

Godpanda June 17 2006 1:05 PM EDT

oh and to annoy people who don't get why people change their name. It's very funny.

I also change my names so they admins can feel like their important by bothering me ;)

RedWolf June 17 2006 6:01 PM EDT

I just get bored with one name after a while. But I always keep the name everybody knows me as (Red) in it somewhere. Except for once, and that time I just felt like being strange for a month.
