Weird usernames


Yeah its all got a bit weird, what with all the usernames based on real ones.

Funny thing is I've seen a couple based on mine and I suppose you could say I beat them to it with 'Sh1tHead' as a self-mocking name months ago! emoticon And of course 'talker of total bollocks'!
[er on the names thing, not talkin about MachineDad 1 (lol) - hi 'Mark'!!, nor MachineDead 1 (hee-hee) - hi Scandanavian comic genius!! Yeah, more the other supposedly rude ones]

But when I was on just a short while ago it was like a who's who of user names but rude-modified . I suppose I should take it as a compliment to be included emoticon

As a speedway rider once commented that was on the receiving end of dog's abuse from the section of the crowd I was in (well - he was one of the opposing team's better riders)... "It's boring when nuthin happens. People recognise me. They boo. I love it!"

This was the same guy that, after winning a race beating one of our best riders, came round on a victory lap - to rapturous booing by our supporters. He then stopped his bike exactly at the section of the crowd where our supporters were, got off his bike, turned round, dropped his leathers/kevlars and showed his bare backside to our supporters - which got our section of the crowd even more infuriated. Meanwhile, I was p***ing myself. He might have been the enemy, but I thought it was hilarious and the sport needs characters. Its boring these days - they just do the job and don't even bother coming round to either get cheered or booed. The real characters have all gone form the sport - its become a bit sterile and boring.

So I say, can I have some more MH based names please emoticon



(and yes, this is MachineHead 1 here. I used to have a sig that goes with 'Sh1tHead'...
"I used to be MachineHead 1, but now I'm 'Sh1tHead' - surely a vast improvement!)

Re: Weird usernames


There´s not much one can do about those except maybe just stop using the "who´s online" feature I´d be for removing for other reasons, too.

 Do you mean that you think the "Who's Online?" feature should be disabled/turned off?
 Speaking for myself & not the entire administration, I'd have no problem(s) with disabling/turning the option off, but I'm just curious as to your reason(s) & if our Fearless Forum Founder & Leader Niko Vidgren thinks it's a good idea, then I'd imagine there's a possibility it'll disappear very shortly.

Re: Weird usernames


The only reason I'm against turning it off, is because sometimes it's nice to see how "full" the room is before you start posting. Gives you some ideas as to whether you might get replies back soon or not.

There are days I might not have the energy to post if I think I'm the only one there, but if I see a full board with lots of people on, I'm more apt to make an effort at that exact moment in time.

Also, turning off the "who's on line" feature might solve the problem of long names stretching out the page up top, but once the person posts, you still have a long name in the upper left corner of their indidvidual post that will do the same exact thing. So I don't really see how the problem could be avoided. (Unless there's something about the site I'm [sign in to see URL] that very well could be the case).

Nothing to write home about.

Why do you care?

Imagine one or some few people have nothing else to do than to log in and out. I see them wild fighting with their computer.

While it is possible and probably more likely I find it hard to imagine it is just one. But seems to be the only provocation someone can think of. I just wonder who it is, don´t think it can be anyone who recently has been banned.

Okay Ed, I think it would only be consequent to switch the feature off now. Just give it a try for a while. Remember we didn´t have that feature for years on THS, and did we miss it before we had it?
