    This is my real name. I used to use the same fake name for all the websites I went to, but nowadays I don't really visit websites or need usernames outside of things related to school/career (except for a few DIY blogs I follow and sometimes comment on), so I tend to just stick with my real name.

    No, this name was just me trying to fit into a D&D-oriented community as a dumb 11 year old, but I'm not planning on changing it.

    My GitP username was the first internet username I had, and for a long time I used it on every website. Since 2006, I've had a few usernames that I would rotate between for new websites, occasionally dropping older usernames. I haven't used this one for any new site in a few years, but there are still many websites where I still have it because I signed up for them a long time ago.

    You know, I always used to do that....
    But recently I have stopped.
    Probably something to do with me using the same password as well, and then my friends figuring out that password. I had to change ALL of them.
    Current characters:
    Drakirr (Blue Dragonborn Warlock)
    Alyfyldyr Hyalythki (Rock Gnome Wizard)
    Harilidir (Hald-elf Bard)
    Kazaharad Akaztkl (Goliath Barbarian)
    Luft (air-genasi druid)
    And of course Lizard Wizard (Lizardfolk Sorcerer)

    I used to, but then some drama happened on Forum A and I used Forum B to vent about it, how silly it was, and how dumb everyone was being. Then a mod on Forum A saw the post on Forum B and banned me for it. These days I try to come up with something different from my previous usernames or something that's very hard to search for, like an old or obscure meme (like this one). I've heard horror stories of mods on some sites who will search for your posts on other forums just to find an excuse to ban you for wrongthink, looking for matching usernames and email addresses in profiles.

    Knaight is just my nickname, and I tend to use it on forums. That said while I'm resigned to corporate surveillance from tech companies I'm a little less resigned to the whole phenomenon of employers doing internet research on things well beyond what's reasonably their business, so anywhere where I'm likely to get overtly political in less orthodox ways I usually have another layer of obscurity or so.
    I would really like to see a game made by Obryn, Kurald Galain, and Knaight from these forums.

    I'm not joking one bit. I would buy the hell out of that.

    I've changed it all the time but not so much for the sake of security issues as for my fondness of variation. I'm actually quite paranoid, but most of the time I don't feel my neck is important enough for somebody to hurt.

    Oooh yeah. You can find plenty of stuff with my username.

    I used to have different usernames for everything when I was a teenager, but now I'm just... eh. I've used FinnLassie/finnlassie for 8 years now, and it really... is me.

    Also, it's very common that people actually think my name is Finn.

    Even if they know you're Finnish, or does it usually click when they learn that detail?

    "But I always thought your name is Finn! That's weird! What is your real name??"

    Which I just don't understand, because the people that I know online don't even reveal their own actual names, ever. I always have to emphasise that this is my nickname online and they have no business knowing my actual name.

    Yes, except for YouTube where I use my real name because I hadnít come up with a username yet and I canít be bothered to check how to change it. I might decide to have other usernames further down the line, though.
