I won a name at the auction in 2007, and only started using it in september.
What a great idea to do it again, what could we fundraise for.
What about something to do with Armastice Day?

GReat idea.

Don't want a new nickname myself but think this is a very good idea. It's been a while since the last one so it should raise some money for a good cause.

Last bump...

Bumping again for anyone around this morning.

Also, for those of you who were unaware of this, about 4 years ago, MN towers set up an auction of names that had been taken but never used.

If someone registered for Mumsnet and then the account went dormant. Or maybe name changes that were for only one post. It helped to secure names that were very similar to your own and raised nearly £700 pounds with people bidding £5 or £10 etc for their names of choice.

So would love to do this again. Anyone else?

I had no idea this existed either, but this is a great idea.

Nor did I! Every time I think of a new name it has already gone. Grand idea. <not at all original but think I am>

Nor me, was looking back to see when last auction was as it happened when I was still relatively new. It still had the option to create a new convo, so tadaaa!,

No, I'm the only one unimaginative interested enough?

That's it really, every time I try and change my name, discover some fucker used it for three weeks in 2003 and I can't.

Please...we could think of great charity, please?
