    Test your username for uniqueness. The site checks member lists of all the major web 2.0 sites out there for matches of your username. See if your handle is really that original.



    Apparently, "Veho" is not unique [​IMG] Stupid illiterate asses misspelling Veoh as their tag [​IMG] I came up with it first, dammit!! [​IMG]

    Quote original. There are about 7 Satangel's that are not mine.
    All the rest is available or comes from me.

    12seconds - taken
    Diigo - taken
    Gmail - taken
    Hellotxt - taken
    Vimeo - taken
    Yahoo - taken

    None are mine, aside from Yahoo and Gmail I have never heard of any of them before today. I may have once registered at yahoo (it would have been about 10 years ago and I expect it would have been recycled by now) but never gmail.

    On the other hand I just tapped a very long random string into it and those exact sites appeared again, an even longer and even more random (cat walked across the keyboard) threw up more "taken" so I guess the site is broken.

    You have to realise sometimes people want to make a quick registration just to access certain things on the site and therefore mash the keyboard when asked for a username. I have done this coutless times myself.

    There are 6 names that are taken that's not even means. Yet my gamertag, Xihetiz is taken by seven names.

    I am 100% sure my nickname is original but this site says that some websites have the nick registered (some of wich are my accounts), when I search the websites that I do not know(click the link) it says that name is unknown and the users does not exist...

    I would hate it when I would see another Laminaatplaat :S

    Mine is about 70% original. But it's my real name anyways, so I didn't expect many places to have it.

    lol, mine's not too original (Maktub).

    My other nickname, however (deriving from my real name) is far more original (Juan Olvido isn't such a common name after all! [​IMG]

    Mine seems to only be available at sites that don't allow 3 letter nicknames.

    Didn't bother to check the sites I didn't recognise, though.

    Law497 is taken 7 times. 1 of which is mine.

    Not bad considering the numbers were just die rolls.
