I changed my name

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Flamingo21, Sep 29, 2022.

  1. After much resistance, I have succumbed to the unceasing psychological pressure of that pink creature in my avatar.

    So from now on, I'm not instrumentalist but Flamingo21.

    The change makes logical sense when you put it that way.

  5. Did you turn pink from eating red algae? That's how REAL flamingoes do it. :smug:

    You have it easy. Where I live and what I do for a living, we have a large court rule with many subsections about filing a petition with a judge, publishing the name change in the newspaper for a period of time, getting a hearing to make sure you're not doing it to defraud anybody, etc. Congrats! Seriously, a few years ago I had a couple of different user names spread about a few different forums of my various interests, and I got each admin to change them to all the same so when I referenced something related, everybody could go look me up and confirm. Congrats!

    You're a day late and a dollar short.

    They're a local band.

    I guess you did technically say "Flams". That's a bit different. You can probably have it.

    Seems like a missed pun opportunity. Could have gone for Flamenco68. (Flamenco in 6/8)..
