I thought it sounded cool. If you say I can't have two forum accounts, I forgot about the first one when I made the second one. --{{User:Fangoriously/SIGGY HERE!}} 11:00, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

:I missed this before. Since you have continued to edit under the old name for a few years now, I'm just going to disregard this change request unless you renew it. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 21:50, 17 October 2016 (UTC)

I hate my username. It's too long. I want to change it. Seriously386? Cool name. Gfdgsgxgzgdrc? Don't like it. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 01:01, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

:How about "Garbles"? — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 01:06, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::Sorry. --{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 01:10, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

:::For what? I'm not very inclined to change your name to "Seriously386" because it's very similar to other usernames. (If you tried to create a new account with that name, the system wouldn't let you.) So I'm making a suggestion for something that is unique and pronounceable, with the benefit that it references your current name so it's easy to keep track of the change. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 01:25, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

::::How 'bout "Jorb386"? --{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 02:43, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::Nah. How about "Garbles"? That's how I already pronounce "Gfdgsgxgzgdrc". — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 02:56, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::I don't really like that name. {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 02:58, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::Then let's stay with the one you have. You've become rather established under it. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 03:05, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::If you like "established" names, How about "Rasmoh"? Is that established enough? {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 03:17, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::::I don't know what that means, so I guess not. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 03:27, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::::By "established" he means that YOU, as a user on this wiki, have made enough edits and have developed enough of a personality under your current name that anything which doesn't imply a connection to your current name would confuse other users. For the record, I kinda like the name "Garbles". {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 03:43, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::::Actually the word "garble" means to mix words up to make a new word, like "cookie" and "look" = "lookie". --{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 00:05, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::::I'm not sure what word you're thinking of (''portmanteau'' maybe?), but ''garble'' [http://education.yahoo.com/reference/dictionary/entry/garble means] "to mix up ... to such an extent as to make ... incomprehensible." "Gfdgsgxgzgdrc" is a bunch of letters garbled together. — [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 00:39, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::::OH okay I get it now. But still I like the name "Jorb386" better than my ''old'' username. AND I never actually ''tried'' to pronounce my username, but if I had to pronounce it, It would ''prolly'' sound like "guff-duh-guzz-guh-xuh-guh-zuh-guh-derk". ''PLEASE'' change my name to Jorb386. I wont edit until atleast ''someone'' does. <!--PLEASE CHANGE A THE NAME.-->--{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 01:45, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::::You shouldn't give an ultimatum if you don't want your bluff called. The problem I have with Jorb386 is almost identical to the one I have with Seriously386. You're basically taking a name that's already been registered and slapping a number on it. There's a reason the system won't let you do that (names should be unique). How about "Gfgdrc" or "Gfdrc386"? &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 01:58, 4 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::::::Or groovepossum? Sorry, But that's already the name of my forum account. --{{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 02:52, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::::::Already the name of your forum account? You registered it ''last night''. I've changed it to Gfdgsgxgzgdrc to match your wiki account. &mdash; [[User:It's dot com|It's dot com]] 03:04, 5 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
:::::::::::::Okay, No username change for me. :( {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 00:41, 6 January 2012 (UTC)
 
-
::::::::::::::Now I'm having trouble logging into the forum. :( {{User:Gfdgsgxgzgdrc/sig‎}} 01:24, 10 January 2012 (UTC)
