Everyone's just being silly about the silly name changes. No one seriously thinks that anyone who uses the script hates fun. That said, the joke is starting to get a bit stale at this point, so it'd probably be best to drop it.

I never liked the joke; it hits too close to home for me.

I agree that we should drop it.

I didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings. I'm sorry. How's this:

I, along with others, although not everyone, enjoy the idea of not being able to tell who is who for a little while. To imply that those who want to keep tabs on who is who don't like having fun was wrong. This is my very sorry sooong (BUM BUM BUM)

That being said, the reactions to my poor decision have cemented exactly who I am, to anyone with or without a handy script. Bear Wife, go ahead and change my name back please.

The name joke itself, or the joking about people that hate seeing other people with different names joke?

Sorry, but you signed up for it. The names stay until I start rolling back.

By the way, if you want to keep your new name, you better post in here that you want to retain it by the end of Halloween.

So...just to make sure, this joke is only until Halloween, not barring those who want to keep their new names, right?

Coming November 1, a script that replaces the real names with the silly ones.

Edit: Users of this script will be derided as funhavers, of course.

Well, it's not too hard to save web pages with all images, and since everyone with a name change has posted in this thread, you just need to do that for every page in here. I'd do it if I wasn't backing up things. :nnngh:

I've gotten everyone else's names down now, but whenever I see King Anime, Esquire, I immediately think it's Grilox. (Spoiler alert: That ain't him. :v: )

I thought it was OFSheep at first, before noticing the lack of blue name.

I maintain that half the fun of the name change is being "in costume", but then everyone was given X-Ray vision and it's like... okay, well half the fun is now neutralized. I'm not upset, but I'm not pretending it has no effect.

Eh, as funny as the names are, not being able to tell who you're talking to for more than a week gets a little frustrating, since we're bound to do more than crack jokes about our new names over like ten days. It's still good that we did this, but being able to tell who's who makes it much better, because we can opt in or out at our leisure.

I'm also a bit miffed that it totally overshadowed my personal Halloween thing, but that's just me being silly.

Could always do what I did, and ignore the namechange for the last few days in favor of personal Halloween stuff.

I've got an excuse to use this av and too much time was spent on it for me to not use it, dadgummit.

I just followed the thread when it started, so I saw everyone's names change and was able to pretty well follow along with who's who. But then with some of the later ones where kef was away and the names didn't get changed until later started to confuse me. :twonk:

Opera saves any Stylish scripts along with the page, so I don't even have to extend it to apply to my downloaded copies.

Who the heck is Imaginary Fiend? He's the only person I haven't identified. (Can't be bothered to upload the latest version of the script right now, sorry.) Reply in spoiler tags or whatever.
