To think that usernames are becoming too long and it's a struggle to read them?

Such as: DoYouLikeMyUsernameICouldntThinkOfAShorterOne kind of thing grin

Oh, I like that, it's quite catchy! NC coming up...

I tend to agree but as long as they are shortenable I don't mind too much. It's probably due to the fact that all the short snappy names have been taken.

Yes, that's the problem. Short ones are often taken

Be like me then and don't really take any notice have a head like a sieve.

If replying to someone other than the OP I usually take it upon myself and shorten it for them grin

Mines a bit long because of my children's cancer colours. I'm trying to think of a snappier Halloween one.

I don't know what you mean

Startailoforangeandgold Wed 03-Oct-12 16:27:36

Oh bugger the best one I can think of is even longerblush

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Wed 03-Oct-12 16:31:38

My names just seem to get longer and longer. I get shortened to SPsFanjo which makes some comments quite funny in a very immature way grin

ViviPru Wed 03-Oct-12 16:35:29

I got in a shortening pickle with you on one thread, SPs. I think I quoted you and the OP was like "what's an SP?" and it all got a bit crossed purposes and befuddled....

SPsFanjoLovesItGangnamStyle Wed 03-Oct-12 16:39:58

SP are the initials from my first name on MN. I kept sp so I was recognised.

I have had shorter ones but I'm quite fond of this one now blush

No one ever quote me or mentions me though so it doesn't matter grin

MumsGoToReykjavik Wed 03-Oct-12 16:48:48

I've had shorter ones but I nc a lot and I never say anything worth quoting anyway!

Isn't it worse when someone repeats the same word twice in their username, so when you quote them it looks like you're using the particular word out of context? wink
