Ok please, please, don't get me wrong I don't want to buy anyones username, it is a question to see how attatched you are to your username, could you give it up, change it easily, how long have you had it, also(optional) on other sites do you keep to the same username or feel uncomfortable as another username.


I myself wouldn't sell it period, about five years now, and yes I am fleamailman everywhere else too.

If I was to sell it (never would) I would expect at least 200 dollars :whistling:, seeing as I've been using it since year 2000! I've used it on many other forums and lots of online games.... so its well known.

I've been using my username since the days of Quake deathmatch so no amount of money is enough.

After a long an exhaustive search i eventually came across mine that combined my love online violence of the highest order and my name and nationality all in one good sounding name, i dont think i would ever give it up, i would have to go back to using my old cadet nickname/callsign "tank" and i dont like that as much and its always taken.

:whistling: No way would I give up mine. It's my actual name...well, my name is Kathie. But I've been called Kat my entire life. I'm Kat on all of the other malware boards, and every other forum I'm a member of. The only exception I can think of offhand is a private pay forum I've been a member of a long time. My name there is different...for obvious reasons. :blink:

I would sell mine for the right price. however I don't think anyone is going to offer 100,000,000 for mine... :whistling:

besides I have a lot of time invested in my name. Its a well known and established identity. now copyrighting or trademarking would be an option....

I could not sell my username. I use it on just about everything, usually just "Enzeru". I've seen a few people with the name "Enzeru" but sheez I've had it for five years now going on six soon.

My users names could never be bought. They would need to be earned.

Looks "certifiably purple" to me, but perhaps that just comes from my working with a grook of goblins in small hovel supposed to be a workspace here I presume, anyway, above somewhere through the pile of mangled comp-bits there is a door that leads to the street, the outside world and the moon above, ah, but these loonies have turned their back to all that, I mean who needs a big disk in the sky now, when one can positively gleem with RAID-viewing.
