    Name Change

    I'm thinking of changing my WD forum name.

    Something to reflect a fresh start, a bringing in sync with a new handle I've been using for a while now in the City of Heroes MMORPG, which is my main character's name.

    The name is "Stalemate".


    Should I?

    My vote is strictly selfish. As I am getting my head wrapped around calling you Stalemate in CoH, the name change would make it easier. Although, the Adept tag carrys a unique and rather potent aura of its own.
    I didn't surrender, but they took my horse and made him surrender. They have him pulling a wagon up in Kansas I bet.

    I forgot to mention that the moniker I'm proposing to adopt is also the one my wife uses for me when she thinks I'm not romantic enough.

    That's way better, and much more acceptable in mixed company, then the one my wife has for me...

    You will always be Adept to me... adept by name and nature... stalemate sounds like a quasi cynical socio political statement....
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."

    You already guessed I'll change it regardless, didn't you?
