to discuss things you don't want associated with your normal nick, not just to change a part of your name iykwim.

of course cod could never namechange to discuss anything personal as her inimitable style would give her away instantly

I might name change so my threads don't look like im some sad old git that never get a reply and post something to myself. How sad is that?

I've never name changed apart from a very obvious Christmas name. I probably should have done for some threads but I think I get more from mnet if other posters know my history. And that sounds very self-centred.

paulaplumpbottom Tue 27-Feb-07 22:25:12

I wouldn't do it at all.

wannaBeWhateverIWannaBe Tue 27-Feb-07 22:26:30

lol at namechanging and then replying. had never thought of that.

Spidermama Tue 27-Feb-07 22:27:11

Only at Christmas or if I have issues involving sex or the nether regions to talk about.

I wouldn't want to lose the relationship I've built up with MN and start afresh.

Have just done so to moan about Gordon Brown, apart from that never.

Never done it apart from daft halloween and christmas name.

I've only ever namechanged so as to not be recognized in rl.

couldn't start a fresh either.

wannaBeWhateverIWannaBe Tue 27-Feb-07 22:31:01

so your alias wasn't carlk then hd?

HappyDaddy Tue 27-Feb-07 22:31:53

Funnily enough, no.

It was Tamba.

Dont do it to troll! Big NO NO.

SHOSHAlee Tue 27-Feb-07 22:38:00

3 times so far today!

NotanOtter Tue 27-Feb-07 22:40:00

i have replied to myself
do name change for puysonal reasons!

wannaBeWhateverIWannaBe Tue 27-Feb-07 22:41:11

I've never trolled.

WotzBestMateTwinWotz Tue 27-Feb-07 22:41:55

I have just replied to myself and it has cheered me up no end. Might start texting and emailing myself too.

Little world, how happy I am....

when I first joined I name-changed a lot, until I found one that I felt comfortable with really. Still change occasionally if I feel like a change or if I have something embarrassing to ask.

hunkerdave Tue 27-Feb-07 22:44:10

I've done it once, ages and ages ago. Not because I didn't want MNers to know who I was, but because I was worried that people who already knew me might find my posts.

I just don't care now

I quite like hunkerdave.

Wasn't so keen on TwunterMunker. Was that it? It was something along those lines..

hunkerdave Tue 27-Feb-07 22:49:14

I love hunkerdave - it has a proper <thud> quality to it.

Kind of...oh, oh, oh! Oh... Or something.

But seriously, I only ever namechange to piss about. I don't do the "I've got a dreadful secret to tell" largely cos I don't have dreadful secrets.

hunkerdave Tue 27-Feb-07 22:49:42

Not sure I was ever Twuntermunker. I was nuckingfutjob

SueW Tue 27-Feb-07 22:50:12

Don't. Never have.

Bubble99 Tue 27-Feb-07 22:51:02

That was it. I knew it contained some garbled profanities..

pinkchampagne Tue 27-Feb-07 22:54:12

I have name changed a few times for my more serious, personal posts, because I needed to try & be a little careful.
I have also had to change my regular name once due to some RL spying!
