Do you like to change your display name on BuzzJack or do you keep it the same? Why or why not?
Do you like to keep part of your main display name in your display name?
You can also share the meaning behind your display names if you want

I was Tombo for 9 years but then started to change it up a bit this year and experimented with Tombo Tingz, TomboOnBroadway, Ronald McJackson, ebae and then back to Tombo as I wanna be mainly known as Tombo and don't wanna get too lost in other names but I will probably change it again soon laugh.gif

Tombo Tingz was celebrating the Nicki Minaj releases of Chun-Li and Barbie Tingz.

TomboOnBroadway was for the Scars On Broadway comeback.

Ronald McJackson was to match my Ronald McJackson avatar



ebae I just thought sounded cool so thought I'd stick with it for a bit.

Tombo in general was a nickname when I was younger, not sure how it first started but hey ho!

I usually have the display name 'Jade' but switch it up for Halloween and Christmas (and occasionally for other random times, like that BJBB dare or during the first Soggy Doggy quiz earlier in the year #rememberJBoyforAwards2k18) because I like to join in with that fun on the site. But yeah, 90% of the time it's just Jade. I am comfortable going by my real name and I like that it's short, simple and easily recognisable on the site.

I've changed my name LOTS over the years although I've generally kept to the basic template of Joseph + the surname of someone I'm currently stanning (JosephStyles being my default). Currently it's JosephAvery and I'm enjoying that for the time being cool2.gif

Plus of course JosephCarey at Christmas *.*

Sometimes I'll change the emoji after my name or stylise it differently but I'm always just Lindsey or Linds (idk sometimes i prefer that) but the annoying thing is "Lindsey" is taken, hence why I need to add an emoji or symbol. Ive had 🙃 for a while now bc it references Fake Happy by Paramore and its my fave emoji, like what an eternal mood *.*

I actually hate the Christmas and Halloween names lmao so I don't even change it for that, I used to put the surname of whoever I stanned but at the time I did EVERYONE was doing it so I kinda stopped because it just such overkill, and never change it now. I think the only times I've changed since like 2011 were for teams, like Lieowstic🐱 as we were Liberal Democats in the most recent teams!

I changed my name to be Dexton backwards when Ariana released No Tears Left To Cry and that was stylised backwards (also started a trend on here so your welcome x) but it annoyed me how some letters werenít straight so Iím back to basics now tongue.gif If I can think of anything fun I might join in the classic Halloween/Christmas annoying names though wink.gif

I was going to change mine every couple years or so, but it's been at least 4 years now and I haven't thought of anything worth changing it to! I don't change mine for Halloween or Christmas either although I enjoy seeing what other members come up with for theirs.

I make half hearted attempts at Christmas and with Teams but other than that itís been the same boring one for 12 years.

I once tried T Man but that was unpopular so I changed it back, just before Toby attempted to steal my identity.

I find it disconcerting when someone changes their name, as it can take a while to realise who they actually are.

There's only a handful of things that works with my name & I've exhausted them for the seasonal spells...

Tells that I use if I see someone who's clearly not a newbie that I don't recognise.

1) many name changes are a pun on their original name so that sorts out approx 60% of name changes
2) their avatar or signature, assuming they didn't also change those, so helpful for me recognising people scrolling through a topic. If they did, onto 3)
3) their writing style and posting position, I can often work out who's posting by their style and where on the board they are.
4) their approx post number and member join date, narrows it down to a few people and you can correlate it with their posting style
5) the quickest method and the best way if you don't feel like being Sherlock, click on their profile and select 'Member Name Change History' from the dropdown box on the left. Foolproof.

I have a short name so I sometimes switch it up, mainly with just puns but much less often than sprucing up a new profile. The idea of getting a new online identity is cool though, I have changed many of my standard names across platforms to 'Izzy Stars' now because it's longer.

I don't really ever change my username apart from when a fave drops something (I've always kept the Ultra part and added like violence/1989/green light/reputation after 😂). I sometimes do changes for Xmas/Halloween/Teams and that's it
