I'm tired of this username and want to have the same username across various sites. So I'm looking at using one of the names in the poll. Take this amazing opportunity to vote, and maybe I'll pick the winner :D

Wow.  When did you make those usernames?  When you were 13?😂

Ferkner is the only one that doesn't seem to mean anything (so far as I'm aware), so I'd go with that if you've got to pick one, I guess.

That's the one I am leaning towards. Ironically, that is the only one that was thought up when in my teens. And it doesn't have any story behind it.

Richard Cheese is the one I use on YouTube because who the hell wants to use their real name on there with all the deranged idiots on there? I settled on Richard Cheese over Mr. Sister Fister 😅

Liquid Manure Brian stems from the local sports radio station I listened to religiously for a decade. They spoke of an old listener who used Liquid Manure Barb as her name when emailing in, and I liked how it sounded so I adopted it. It's the name I use on Twitter and Patreon to communicate with two of the former hosts who now have a podcast together.

Since I communicate on YouTube, Twitter and Patreon about Retromags from time to time, I'd like to have a name that is similar across various sites.

I too have thought about changing my name here at Retromags. Before I settled on Phillyman I was SmackedAzz and Southprker, I haven't used any of those since around 2002 with AIM.

All I hope is that any new names I'm going to get stuck looking at on a daily basis display a modicum of maturity.

That's asking a lot from me 😆

Just keep E-Day :-).

Otherwise I'll have to change my name to Poopz McShitz.

It's worth changing just to have you change yours to that!

While these jokes are well and good, if a name change is in all seriousness actually being proposed, I encourage anyone involved to consider their positions as representatives of this website.  No one expects real names to be used at a site like this one, but likewise, if I were to visit Retromags and saw that it was being run by someone called ThickSlickDonkeyDick, would I feel comfortable sending that person a donation (monetary or magazine)?  Would I even feel like it was worth my time contributing and participating in forum discussions, if I was given the impression from everyone's usernames that Retromags was being run by a bunch of teenage boys?  Keep it respectable.

No one is going to change their names to Trots Johnson or Squirts McTurdle. The name change was a serious proposition because I do want to consolidate my usernames across multiple platforms. I was also hoping for a Ferkner landslide.

If that's the name you want, just do it.  No need for a poll to decide your identity for you.😀

I am curious as to what happens when E-Day changes his name, and everything says E-day around here. Will the posts and downloads all change. Scanned by E-day, who is that?
