Forum home The potting shed

Usernames - Random suffixes

These random usernames for new users really gets up my nose - this is the only forum Ive ever seen with them since the web began.

Why, why, why!?

    They can be changed, but if folk are only joining in order to get one query answered, why would they bother?  Sounds like you should be in Curmudgeon's Corner today @JoeX ;)

    Loving the fact your post was followed by a post with username jon8jackXaaIVl-q in the discussions list😁

    Surely the people who administer the site should have noticed by now and passed the problem on to the techies to fix.

    I wonder, in the scheme of things, how important that fix would be? I am reminded of a very old TV series starring Patrick McGoohan whenever I see names like yours @K67 and @KT53  :D

    If the poster cares they can surely edit their own user name.  Don't see why it should bother anyone else.

    @herbaceous 😊
    I too remember The Prisoner " I am a name not a number!"
    In my case K is my name although with a few more letters after it!

    Just a coincidence then that 1967 was the year of The Prisoner then @K67 ?   ;)

    Really? Didn't know that. 67 is my house number and my age when we moved here. Shame they both can't stay the same, 😁 @herbaceous

    Only if your house number is 27 apparently, on this forum at least! Wouldn't that be great @K67 ?

    "I am not a number, l'm a free man" Bonkers. Loved it, couldn't make head or tail of it. Portmeirion is a lovely place though.

    Be seeing you 🙂.
