I Have No Clue Who Anyone Is
« on: March 12, 2010, 07:57:41 PM »
For some reason, in joining this board a large group of people felt the need to change their IDs. As a result, it's very confusing to identify people. Already, someone changed their name to Liptorn and was misidentified as Willie Shabas (Liptorn on Greg's board).

Might I suggest that for awhile people throw into posts their old ID so others might have some idea who they are?

How about anyone who changed their name just respond here in this thread.  I'll start:

Hey Ron, I have been reading this forum as a guest for a few days. I finally sat down and started an account. I am messing with my avatar right now, trying to get it just right. I used the flashback version of View Monster this time.   :P

I'm still Swiski. I was going to embellish my name and become Swiski Fright (like my avatar) but then that would be too cheesy.

I considered changing my name, since RawGoo wasn't close to my first choice when I joined Greg's forum 4 years ago - seemed that everything I tried had been taken!  But, I figured it would get too confusing, and that I was better off having people recognize me.  Plus, Rebell-Jet did such a great job on my avatar!

I am that someone. I was Coffinmate on Greg's forum. Didn't mean for any misidentifications, just wanted to take the opportunity to have an I.D. that I like the best. In my first post here I immediately told everyone that I changed it to Liptorn, my all time favorite Wacky. I guess it will take a little time for everyone to get used to all who changed I.D.s. I'll put the old info. in my profile as suggested.

He sure did great work!  I forget what I sent him as a "Thank You", but I appreciate his efforts whenever I watch my avatar.  Don't know that he's a member of either of the new forums now though.....

I'd really love to have an animated avitar. I wouldn't use the one from Greg's forum which is Willie's. If Willie came here, he could still use his avitar and sign up as Liptorn2 or something like that, or I'd change to Liptorn2. If I were to animate the Liptorn dude, I would maybe start with the flames coming out of the guy's mouth (just like the card) and then have the soup bowl explode into a mushroom cloud.

While I would still like to see a field added to the Profile info so folks can include (at least) their first name - I like to address folks by their first name when I can - my second suggestion would be this one: use your signature field to include perhaps your first name, your previous forum name (if it differed), etc.  My signature has a link to my homemade page and it does mention that I'm Martin.  Then again, I am using my nearly decade old forum name (I like the Crayons, what can I say).

I do like having two words for IDs.  I had to underscore on the old board to have Crakola_Crayons.

Brian, what you need to do is get a copy of your avatar from the old board.  Log in, pull up your old profile there and see your picture.  Right click on it and save it to your hard drive on your computer.  Then come here, modify your profile and upload that saved avatar to this board.  Really easy.

Good idea Dave.  I made a comment before that I feel like I'm at a costume party trying to figure out who everyone is.

So even if you put your full name in your profile others won't see it?  I thought it was a choice whether you wanted your name hidden or not.  That makes identification even trickier.

You could put your email and hide.  I don't recall seeing anywhere that you could put your full name in your profile here.  I need to go back and look just to be sure I didn't over look it.  If I click on your name to get your profile, I am not seeing your full, real name.

Update: nope, nowhere in the personal info like gender, birthday, etc. is there a field to put in the profile a real name.  Brad, can that field be added to profiles at this point or not?

Hello everybody! I was ronlisa on the old forum and on this one too. I kept the user name the same so there would be no confusion with anybody.  I dont post much because I hate to type but I do check in on the forums almost daily.
I know that the user name "ronlisa" has nothing to do with Wacky Packages, its my  name and my wifes name put together which most of you have probly allready figured out. Its the name I started out with on Gregs site , so I just kept it the same.
