Had to look up my account. 11 years as a member. How long has this website been active?
Is the exclusive club a temporary thing until the election is over, or permanent?
I really do suspect some people are paid to disrupt forums like this.
In 2004 I started writing about the Bay Area housing market.In 2005 I started taking comments.
Has AF made any referrals yet?
I could add a new database table like:namechanges===========namechange_idnamechange_datetimenamechange_user_idnamechange_old_namenamechange_new_nameAnd then show that on the user's profile page.
Are we going to be assigned smoking jackets and padded Victorian lounge chairs?
Will we have an open market and transferable equity stake in our membership?
When I leave heirs my Patnet membership in my will, does it include all ignores past and present, or does it start out with a clean slate?
Are Patnet memberships guaranteed Covid free, or will monogrammed masks be issued?
Of course! You can sell your membership for whatever you can get for it. But if you sell it to an asshole, I may ban him.
Yeah, what happened? I miss him. I noticed he was in moderation then stopped posting.
I don't game the name change for any dishonest purpose to support a previous moniker.
Tenpoundbass saysI don't game the name change for any dishonest purpose to support a previous moniker. You haven't changed in quite a while. I'd recognize your style as well, or at least I think I would. It would just be good to know who is who. I recall in the past I thought Patrick had an alias feature based on IP address. Obviously that can be circumnavigated by a VPN, but at least if you keep the same email, we could see the past usernames. The quoted stuff doesn't change to the new name, so it's hard on some of these multi-page threads.
I've changed mine a few times, it's all for fun.
NancyPelosiHaircut saysI've changed mine a few times, it's all for fun.It's an annoyance and a pet peeve for me. Doesn't ruin my day by any stretch. Just confusing sometimes. With Covid I've been around more frequently, so not so much an issue right now. But usually there are times where I'm out for 7-21 days checking the site and come back and it looks like a bunch of new users. I'm like "cool" and then recognize the style (in some cases) and know who it is and that they just changed their name.Honestly not a big deal at the end of the day. Just would be nice if taking a break for travel I knew who users were if they existed previously. I generally don't use ignore, so if someone that I don't like to engage with changes their name, I may not know. And then I trash a thread that I'd usually ignore because of the user. Takes away from others experience or maybe in entertains people. I don't know.
I think I'll use AF's standard, by having original name in front of the new to help identify easier.
I keep the 'just_' in front of any name change I made specifically because my original was 'just_passing_through'.
I see the homosexual liberals at Yahoo have locked out all comments online.
