Change nickname request nearly a month old on 03/13/2013 14:27:15 MDT Print View

Hey BPL,
I've sent in two requests to have my forum nickname changed. The fist request was made nearly a month ago. I just want my nickname changed from "T-Funk" to "T.L." sans quotes.

Did you file a support ticket? Send a PM to Daniel.

With all the angst of changing it, can you come up with something more creative?

Did you completely lose the funk or are you just keeping your funkiness private?

Personally, I'm always looking for more. Don't be ashamed of the funk.

Good luck brother.

LOL, guys!

Ken, yeah, I filed two tickets. I'll try Daniel.

Nick and Craig: ah, that nickname comes from when I was about 12. That's when hiphop and rap were starting to make its way into more mainstream culture and so we gave each other nicknames. He was G-Rod and I was T-Funk.

If I get a real trail name, I'll switch it to that. :)

Travis was actually first called T-Rex, given his abnormally short arms and large head. That changed when his homies found out his ability to slide through sticky situations. His name was then changed to T-Fal. After following the singer / rapper T-Boz for many years, lamenting that he was 'just not her type,' he changed his name to T-Funk hoping to spur a love connection.

Alas, it was not to be.

I think your trail name should be T-Mobile.

"that nickname comes from when I was about 12. That's when hiphop and rap were starting to make its way into more mainstream culture and so we gave each other nicknames."

Hmmm. That would make my nickname something like Wolfgang Mozart.

"on a roll"

I'm not on a roll, but when I get too hungry from backpacking, I am like a hobo on a muffin.

Yeah... There is no funky violin.
Obv funky drummer, funky guitar, even funky flute. (thanks Maceo)

I say keep it. If you keep your nickname we can tell who you are no matter your avatar or name

I thought that a nickname is given to you

You have no choice in the matter

Maybe that's why there's no response

"I thought that a nickname is given to you. You have no choice in the matter. Maybe that's why there's no response"

You thought wrong. When you create an account, you choose a username and password (your username is what Travis is calling his nickname). Your choice. While there is a mechanism to change your billing name and address on your own (which is the name that shows in front of your username), there is no mechanism, it seems, to change your username on your own.
