Need my real forum name please
Name: Thrawn
Register Date: April 99 I think
Posts: over 4000

Thanks in advance! I can't wait to have my old account again.

Mitth'raw'nuruodo 12-11-2001 06:24 PM

Oh no. . . :(

darthfergie 12-11-2001 07:04 PM

let me guess...your the person with 4475 posts in the top ten right???

ChrisC3po 12-11-2001 07:42 PM

Would one of the Thrawns be willing to change their name a tad bit? I'm guessing the script will only let one user with the name login....

Mitth'raw'nuruodo 12-11-2001 09:32 PM

Well. . . I suppose. . . that it should be me. :( I did. . . register after Ghost here. Ghost, if you would be able to change your name. . . that would be great. But I don't expect that you should. After all, you were here first. I suppose that I shall have to forfeit my name. :( But before that I have one idea. Chris could Ghost here maybe have his name changed to "Thrawn " (notice the space at the end). Would that be allowed by the server? If so, I would be very grateful.

Wraith 5 12-11-2001 09:37 PM

I think forums like this block that...

Kinda a hacker thing...

Rogue Nine 12-11-2001 10:05 PM

That's my Thrawnie from XWA. He deserves the name more. Sure it's unoriginal, but hey. :p

edlib 12-11-2001 10:17 PM

I was wondering what was up with him.

ChrisC3po 12-11-2001 10:25 PM

No it doesn't look like that's possible...

darthfergie 12-11-2001 11:01 PM

Hey Thrawn(GB Thrawn)
Maybe you could try:

or something like that...

Rogue Nine 12-11-2001 11:32 PM

What's not possible, Chris?

Ikhnaton 12-12-2001 01:35 AM

to have 2 Thrawns, Niner.

I think the Thrawn with the smaller sig should be allowed to keep the name ;)

GUNNER 12-12-2001 03:51 AM

How about we have a steel cage match. ;)

Speaking of sigs, damn some of these peeps have hella huge sigs. What's up with that. does it have to do with small body parts? :rolleyes:

edlib 12-12-2001 07:27 AM

Yeah, how 'bout that, huh?

I pity the folks who view some these pages on dial-up... all those graphics must take forever to load.

But it seems that the XWAers have always felt differently than most on that issue.

GUNNER 12-12-2001 07:40 AM

we are a different breed are we not? )

edlib 12-12-2001 08:10 AM

We like to think so! ;)

Fender 12-12-2001 01:45 PM

Guys, if the huge sigs bother you, why don't you blocvk yourself from seeing them. I think you can do that somewhere in your UserCP.

Ikhnaton 12-12-2001 03:12 PM

I just dont' get the point of these huge sigs. it just takes up space. how many people read it more than once? makes you scroll farther.

I mean, i understand that everybody on the internet wants to be *somebody*, wants to stand out in a group of millions. a huge sig isn't going to do it.

Mitth'raw'nuruodo 12-12-2001 03:21 PM

Oh. . . Too bad it won't allow that. :( Well Fergie, those are some good ideas. I'll have to think about it for a while. I don't mean to be whiney, but it really sucks having to forfeit your name. :( Oh well, I am the newer Thrawn. It just won't be the same w/out looking up and seeing just "Thrawn." It looses a certain omniscient feel to it when you add something. Hmm. . . what would be a good name that still says "me?" Hmm. . .

Ghost of Thrawn 12-12-2001 05:02 PM

I know how much that name can mean Thrawn, (I feel like I'm talking to myself), and I'm sorry about it all. I was afraid this would happen with the forum change. Perhaps there is some way to restrict my Thrawn name to only the XWA forums? If not, then I really appreciate what you're willing to do Thrawn. If I can, I'll help you think of a better name.

darthfergie 12-12-2001 06:36 PM

Well Ghost since this is one HUGE forum now with lots of subforums I really don't think it is possible to have 2 Thrawns...

Ikhnaton 12-12-2001 07:13 PM

newbie Thrawn, just use the whole name: Mitth'raw'nuruodo or whatever the hell it is.

Ghost of Thrawn 12-12-2001 08:04 PM

You're too fast for me Ike. I was just about to suggest that.:)

darthfergie 12-12-2001 08:28 PM

Can you IMAGINE typing that out to talk to him???:eek:

Sherack Nhar 12-12-2001 09:21 PM

Alright, GB Thrawn has agreed to use that name. I've already changed it. Now, can the real Thrawn use his 4000+ posts account?

Mitth'raw'nuruodo 12-12-2001 09:26 PM

Yeah, guess that sounds good. Ghost you owe me big! And if people don't recognize me, I'M GOING TO SPAM UP THESE FORUMS SO THAT EVERYONE KNOWS WHO I AM!!!

Chris, at long last I've decided to change my name at the request of Ghost here. My new name. . . will be "Mitth'raw'nuruodo." There it's done. . .

ChrisC3po 12-12-2001 09:43 PM

Thanks guys. And for the record Mitth'raw'nuruodo I do reconize the name. :D

Wraith 5 12-12-2001 09:57 PM

I like that new name!!!!!

Rogue Nine 12-13-2001 12:08 AM

Another XWA troopie to get his posts and username salvaged. Yippee!

And yes, we are special. :D

GUNNER 12-13-2001 03:57 AM

Wouldn't ThrawnDog have worked just aswell.

Mitth'raw'nuruodo 12-13-2001 10:44 AM

Lol, I supose it's the thought that counts. . . :D

Ghost of Thrawn 12-13-2001 03:46 PM

For some reason I still can't log in. It will not accept my password.:confused:

Rogue Nine 12-13-2001 04:27 PM

Ickiness. This happened to me too. I think you might have to have your password reset.

Wraith 5 12-13-2001 04:35 PM

Maybe that username is just bad luck... ;)

ChrisC3po 12-13-2001 06:38 PM

Ghost of Thrawn, do you still use your own e-mail account, That is where the password was sent to.

Ghost of Thrawn 12-14-2001 10:51 PM

Yes, I still use that account for the forums, but I don't have any messages from the forums in my inbox. I've typed in my address twice, and it's been a few hours now.

ChrisC3po 12-14-2001 11:10 PM

The password has been e-mailed again. Make sure to logout of the forums first, before trying to use your old username.

Ghost of Thrawn 12-17-2001 03:52 PM

The e-mail has never come. I don't know what else to do. Is is possible for you to mail it to ?

ChrisC3po 12-17-2001 04:40 PM

An e-mail has been sent out to your new e-mail address. I hope it works.

Ikhnaton 12-17-2001 05:38 PM

Chris, i've never actually received any emails from this site either. perhaps there is something wrong with the mail service.
