That's why Elyrka still calls me Lelfy.
Elf to goddess - I consider that a promotion.

Actually, I seem to remember that name. Or remember someone talking about it. Or something.

I'm too boring when it comes to screen names. I started as Thorin and I'm still Thorin. Maybe one day I'll change it to something loud and flamboyant, like Thorinius Magnus Maximus of The Lonely Mountainus. [] Or maybe not.

By the way, I edited the first post.

Ah... one of my favorite threads. []

But you forgot the hyphen in the original Wiki's name Dwarf.

Fixed. I also changed Singollo back to Thingol. I was only six months late or so on that one. []

Thank you Thorin, for that information on how to change screen names. |I've decided to change mine. It is really the one which I wanted in the first place.

Your welcome. Personally, I like either Hamfast or Gaffer. It seems strange that we haven't had one or the other before that I can recall.

Thanks. I noticed that which is one of the reasons why I choose the name. The character does not have many lines in the story, but he is signifigant and also virtually the first character we meet in the tale. By the way is their something humorous about the name 'Floating Log'?

Omg....Thorin. This is the funniest thing I've read all day. []

I think I vaguely remember this...but not really. Oh man...oh man.

I definitely did good on my nominations this year! []

Oh yeah, and my screen name is a real name I know, but it's not my name so MEH.

At one point I was "Lillianna Moril" but I thought it was too long.

Then there was my infamous second account where I was technically an oldbie (citizen number 997), but that went to the pits of deletion land.

Isn't there a "used to have this screen name" thread somewhere?

Hamfast, you might want to post your new/old names there, just so those who interact with you can keep track of who you are. []

It's even one of the sticky threads:
Name changes - RFP - Updated: 23-08-06, 19.10 GMT

The threadmaster isn't around as much as he used to, though, so it doesn't get updated very frequently. Hopefully it won't need to all that often ...

I am thinking of putting a space between Hamfast and Gamgee purely for presentation purposes. Would that be a good idea or would it confuse people. It would be the second time that I changed my screen name.

I think it would be a good idea (for the stated reason of presentation), and I very much doubt it would confuse people. Most probably would not even notice. []

Just your friends.
And seeing as you discussed it with us first, you have very little to worry about.

Don't say we have come now to the end; White shores are calling.
You and I will meet again.
Across the sea a pale moon rising; the ships have come to carry you home.
And all will turn to silver glass; A light on the water
Grey Ships pass into the West.

Go ahead. It will be a better name then. And it will only give the feeling that you have changed the spelling.

It's one of the good reasons for changing your name. We'll get used to it very soon - perhaps even immediately. []
