How much trouble would Zombie be in if

she posted something like "Zombie would be pleased to answer your question / interact with you / get into a discussion with you AS SOON AS YOU CHANGE TO A PROPER NICKNAME" on all threads started by user1234567890 posters?

MNHQ's recent forced log in trial has unleashed another tsunami of "user"s as so many signed up to complain.

Zombie is now complaining about the renewed confusion created by "nicknames" that are virtually identical.

Humph.

<high fives Zombie>

Zombie can do no wrong. (Especially when she's right)

SingingTunelessly Mon 22-Aug-16 22:09:55

Yup. Impossible to reply to somebody called "userxxxx" as there's so many of them. Why can't it be that you have to choose a nickname on first log-in?

iklboo Mon 22-Aug-16 22:10:58

Exactly. How am I supposed to memorise something like 9 digits to differentiate?

DixieNormas Mon 22-Aug-16 22:11:08

I think the same, some of them see quite nice and reasonable. Maybe we could help them find new names

If Zombie gets told off by HQ I will give them a virtual slap, as opposed to a real one, which I might get into trouble for. I agree with you Zombie, especially as the Users very often turn out to be arses.

I keep telling them to change their user names, I even started a thread telling them how to do it. I now just skim past any post made by a user456345678654 poster.

It seems an odd thing to do on a forum, why offer an automated name? If you are going to force them to log in then force them to try and come up with a name.

LineyReborn Mon 22-Aug-16 22:12:45

I'm with Zombie.

It's just stupid having all these usernumbers.

MiddleClassProblem Mon 22-Aug-16 22:13:50

There are several that seem to have become regular posters! Change your bloody names!

iklboo Mon 22-Aug-16 22:14:08

I AM NOT A NUMBER. I AM A FREE MUMSNETTER!!!!

PurpleDaisies Mon 22-Aug-16 22:14:37

I think there are many of us that would back a Zombia apocalypse on all these random users.

EmpressKnowsWhereHerTowelIs Mon 22-Aug-16 22:15:30

Zombie is the fount of all MN wisdom.

The other thing that would be good here is for MN to assign them random names. At least then we could tell one from the other.

PurpleDaisies Mon 22-Aug-16 22:15:46

I'm sure there are lots of us that would back a Zombie apocalypse upon these random users.

PurpleDaisies Mon 22-Aug-16 22:16:18

Apologies for the double post.

magimedi Mon 22-Aug-16 22:16:20

I am SO PISSED OFF with all the 'user123456789' names - I totally ignore any post that is posted under that guise.

WTF don't they change their names to something more recognisable??

And I would agree that Zombie is all seeing, ever wise & always right.

FastWindow Mon 22-Aug-16 22:16:39

That would be an interesting thread, helping eg 125905525 change. What questions should we ask?

Not that dreadful type of thing where you take the last thing you ate and your knicker gusset colour and combine the two and there's your hooker name but:

Favourite film genre
Favourite position
Guilty crush, etc.

Hee hee.

LineyReborn Mon 22-Aug-16 22:17:05

I might start suggesting on threads that usernumbers adopt actual user names. Would that be rude? who fucking cares

MiddleClassProblem Mon 22-Aug-16 22:19:02

Fast Widow, let's do it!

DonkeyOaty Mon 22-Aug-16 22:20:02

I can't remember me own date of birth let alone a string of random numbreros so I'm a Yes

(what was the question?)

usual Mon 22-Aug-16 22:20:12

I've suggested it on a thread where 3 of the fuckers were posting. I left the thread in frustration in the end.

NeedACleverNN Mon 22-Aug-16 22:21:00

Good on you Zombie

RustyPaperclip Mon 22-Aug-16 22:21:48

Also agree with Zombie, she seems fabulous grin

kelper Mon 22-Aug-16 22:23:39

There was a good thread the other day where the OP suggested your name should be what you last ate and what you were looking at (Or something similar, apologies for not remembering the correct formula!) perhaps all these User1234567s should do that?
