    I always see those jessica1991 and maggiepie93 user names, and want to make an account that's something like "Bartholomew1867" and pretend I'm a steampunk time-traveling aristocrat.

    My dad uses names that consist of last names, first names, and birthyears for forums, or something he thinks is "cool" in english, like TurboCharge or hotflame_us for things like megaupload.

    No! Stick to Rydian. Names with numbers are so generic.

    I once had four accounts on a forum and would create threads just so I could talk to myself. I even got one of me banned for flamebaiting.

    I'm not an aristocrat, but that sounds strikingly similar...
    Though I don't always do steampunk.

    in this forum i used to peruse, the fonts were all so blocky that a lot of characters looked like each other, so it was always fun to make dummy accounts of other members by substituting identical-looking characters, like an I for a lowercase L. it was so much fun.
    sometimes we even got the actual person banned

    I use 09 in some of my forum names because it's the day I was born on June.
