    Hello all,

    FYI - apparently my username is already registered, and it's not like it's a commonly used username. To "lessen the confusion" I wanted to point out the current "IceTrojan" is not the same as I am (the one I'm sure you have fond memories of from FT and TB).

    Carry on.

    For some reason this reminds me of a Star Trek episode. Just can't seem to wrap my mind around the answer at the moment. Have you attempted to start a conversaion with IceTrojan? BTW I thought IceTrojan was the real you. [​IMG]

    It happens -- I registered as ACMM and someone else as AC_MM ... so far all is good - but my spies are out watching ;)

    I did, too. I even welcomed him here when I saw one of his first posts.

    My screen name is secure but, evidently, lots of newbies are using my avatar!

    Well, if someone is posing as me, I hope someone could do something about that. And I'd personally like to know the motivation behind registering "IceTrojan" as their username.

    I can't even see their profile since they restricted it.

    Anyway, greetings to all!

    That's one of the reasons I registered here 30 minutes after this site opened.

    But thanks for the heads-up! We now know who the real artilce is.

    Welcome to MilePoint!

    That would make me feel kind of creepy. Maybe you can discuss it with the HOM and see what they can work out.

    Common frustration on new sites. Thanks for the post though, as it reminded me to register another account under my previous username to ensure nobody else does. :)

    Captain's Log: It appears that detonating photon torpedoes near the entrance to the wormhole was unwise. The result has been to create a 'fold' in the space-time continuum, which has allowed for multiple manifestations of the same crew members to co-exist on board my Enterprise. As I write this, I have seven androids battling over whose turn it is to feed Spot, and the three surviving Worfs (there were nine until someone decided to replicate bat 'leths) are now in cargo bay one drinking blood wine and singing songs of Ka' Less. Off key.

    Young Naomi Wildman has been here three times today, or three Naomis have been here once each today, crying that someone else had stolen their SpaceBook page. Honestly, if I hadn't two other selves here to confide in, I'd go mad.

    Why would you do that? You don't identify yourself enough with that username to be using it now. What do you care if someone else comes upon the same idea and uses it? It isn't like there is only one George Bush in the world. But nobody confuses them. This isn't specific to you but to everyone that changes nicks willy nilly* across various fora.

    * No offense, couldn't help myself ;)

    Whoops, I totally forgot about that, and didn't intend. :) Hopefully only active users are eligible, and then I am not impacting anything.

    (not sure why I would be offended, so I may have missed the joke/insult :) )

    Previous FT nick was my actual name, and it was a prolific poster. Newer nick on FT matches here, and my preference is to ensure that someone doesn't connect a different person to me and end up confused/misled. Just like I registered firstname.lastname@gmail.com and various combos too. Not to remove the ability of others (and my name is fairly uncommon) but to claim space that I might wish to use in future. Costs nothing, hurts nobody. If someone by the same name contacts me and asks to take over the other username, I just might let them if c_9 has been around for a while, but while c_9 is new, I'd rather control how my name is used in fora that I frequent. :)

    Sir, I've met Dovster. I've guested Dovster and his UIG into a lounge. I assure you sir, Dovster is no Iced Trojan! ;)
