quite a pity because your previous username was a 1000 times more individual.

I got the username, FireyPaperMario* back in January 2008 when I first joined YouTube.

*Also, the username, FirePaperMario was already taken!

Also remember that even when you change your username people will probably still remember you by your old one and might easily get confused

I know, I typed "Previously known as Surtur" in my signature because of that. Although if someone that doesn't recognize me views a post of mine, will realize that I'm Surtur (I won't change my avatar for now and I guess my signature is distinguished from others because of having many banners and the little flags).

I'm wondering if I should change my username to "Smoke" or something Smoke-related, because it'd be closer to the username I use everywhere else, and if I have a Discord server with some people knowing me as Dex and some as Smoke, it'd be kind of weird. But I really like Dex ;-;
P.k.a. Dex

Maybe you can still add your new username as Smoke, and keep your old username Dex, by turning your username named "Smoke (aka Dex)". That way people will still know your old one and new one at the same time.

Comes from my old username Smoke40, the letters "SE" are (obviously) the first and last characters of "Smoke" which was just a random word I thought of and 40 is my birthyear (20)04 backwards

Back when I played Minecraft, my sister came up with this username. It is a pun on the enemy "Enderman" and "fan", because it was my favourite mob. I stopped playing years ago, yet I still use the name on Discord, YouTube, Reddit and of course, here. I kind of became attached to the name.

In a dark, distant past on this forum, I was called LemmyKoopa123. I didn't use my current username back then, as it was quite a long time ago. Now that I have returned to the forum, I have changed my username to "Enderfan" to reflect my current identity on the internet. Also, LemmyKoopa123 was kind of a lame username.
Well, looks like there's nothing to see here.
Just turn around and pretend you didn't waste those precious seconds of your life.

In M&L's Delightful Adventure there's a music file called "Scroll.mp3", and I don't need to say what song it is considering the lots of times I've mentioned it.

The word ended up being stuck in my head so I decided to make it my username. And I think it sounds more individual than my previous one

indeed more individual than my previous one but again, not as individual as your very first one (which I still prefer to use)

I came up with my creative handle when I was ten or so years old. Back then, I liked Koopas a lot and wanted to express that.

Nowadays, I use my other handle, "Saltlord", everywhere except SMBX-related things. When I first started playing games online with my friends, I got a little upset at times, so they decided to give me that stupid nickname. It's not the most unique name of all time, but I'm a lot more satisfied with it than with Koopa-Fan.

I think I literally said the word "loop" three times on a discord chat consecutively, as if my mind was "on loop" lmao
it kinda stuck

the 13 is because that's my favorite number

you might see me around other places referred to as "Sishin Hihiri" or "TemporalError" which I can't offer much explanation on the latter
the former is a couple of typos
Hello, I make a lot of typos
specific people know my whereabouts though

my wifi is as useful as a brick

im more active on discord

:idea: I'm not (completely) dead; I rarely talk because I usually have nothin to say; I'll talk when I actually have a comment I want to make, or if someone asks me somethin...

nostalgia is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

anything before 2020 is most likely me being a weirdo or an idiot.
