Ok people - whats going on with all the name changes?? You are confusing an already easily confused person!! So far Giggler has gone and Birdofprey is here and what happened to Qzhang (which l know l have spelt wrongly!) but he is now Q-Tip!! Has anyone else changed their name - should l am l missing out on summat?? How do you do it (although lm quite happy with Purdy really its my cats name - although at the minute lm calling the cat you wee Ba*t*r* cos she peed on my sofa but thats another story!)

Purdy;)

Oh, it's a combination of things in reality. Raven became Giggler because Hien said she giggled like Wilma Flinstone after speaking with her on the phone. Those who know Raven personally, agreed. So, she went from Raven to Giggler, back to Raven, then to birdofprey - which makes no sense since ravens are scavengers by nature. But, that's another story all together...

Q_Zhang became Q-Tip because of another little joke that happened during a chat session. (See, it pays to visit chat once in awhile! )

Lovelee becoming ilovelucy - can't help you there...

Steffbo becoming Steff - not here either...

babygirl01 becoming baby_girl - nope, not in the loop...

I have found the best way to keep track of who is who - go back to a reply or thread where you know a particular person posted. If the name has changed there - you know who it is. If not - you're guess is as good as mine. (And, I try to keep track since I have to send out the birthday list...)

About that cat thing... My user name is also the name of one of my cats (though now deceased). Depending on their behavior, they have some "other" names too. If I ever get tired of Isadora, I have 30+ more to choose from... I could keep you confused for weeks!!!

I've just jumped on the old band-wagon too.

I was never happy with my previous usernames. Clarabelle is what everyone calls me. But someone already had that username. Grrrr its my name...

I decided to compromise and just spell it different. I might just stick with this.

Quoting Q-Tip

The Men In Black are after me.

I just had one of those 'be careful if you make that face the wind might change' moments when I tried to login and it told me my username was incorrecto, I'd mucked up coming in and out too many times I thought I'd died and gone to tp hell!!!

I don't know. You go away for a few months, and when you drop by, you've no idea who teh heck anybody is as they've all changed their names.

Raven became Giggler because Hien said she giggled like Wilma Flinstone after speaking with her on the phone. Those who know Raven personally, agreed. So, she went from Raven to Giggler, back to Raven, then to birdofprey

I puzzled that for a while, and then only because I happen to have met her, would I possibly be correct in thinking that Raven/Giggler/Birdofprey is actually the user who used to have the name NikkiLeigh? Or...

My head hurts.

Quoting Isadora

Raven became Giggler because Hien said she giggled like Wilma Flinstone after speaking with her on the phone.

I did make a mistake here - it was not Wilma, but Betty Rubble instead.

Quoting Clarabelle

Clarabelle is what everyone calls me.

I'm glad you have an "e" at the end of Clarabelle - or someone may confuse you with:
Clarabell the Clown

But then, there is this Clarabelle...
Clarabelle Cow - Minnie Mouse's best friend

EVERYONE STOP APOLOGIZING!!!!!!!

There is no reason to apologize for changing your username!!! I'm finding it a bit fun trying to figure out who is who.... Just keep in mind - if you really like your original name, there's a chance you may lose it for good... But, if you don't care - have a go at something else!!! Just don't apologize - it's not necessary.

Isa was just having fun "poking the bear" about usernames. But, she refuses to apologize for it. Nope, not gonna happen. Huh-uh - can't make her.
