    This is kinda trivial, but I'm looking through some posts and I see MY handle attached some post I didn't write. WTF? Well somebody used the name Diesel Dan (as opposed to me, DieselDan). Gee how long did that take to think up? This guy has 8 posts to his credit from February, begining with his For Sale crap. He's got nothing on his profile other than Michigan.

    I'm I outta line getting miffed be all this? Or is this just Uncool?

    DD,

    I think there is also a WhiteKnight and a White_Knight on this site also. It appears that a blank space is enough to make the name "unique & legal" so there's not much you can do about it.... unless they are actually PRETENDING to be YOU!

    In which case, you can notify the "CK5 Federales" .... /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Guess I'll let it go. And Yes Ramjet is right: time for me to ante' up.
     
  9. We are kind of partial to our nicknames, but it's only a name guys and gals. Here is an example: the original White Knight is (Mike K.) who still posts every now and then, but been around since the start of CK5, and I think we all know the other Whiteknight(Teresa). I still mix up there names until I read the posts. Lets copyright our nicknames/username !!! LOL I don't think I have seen another BigBurb in all my posts on all the 4x4 sites, but some that were damn close. Hell I know if I used Harvey(my first name) I'd be a one of a kind !!

    I've been around here since the original board and my first time on I noticed that there was a Corey 88K5 since mine is Corey 78K5 people used to get us confused all the time.

    Hey when I saw the white knight post, I pm'd her and congratulated her on a great name. Makes no never mind to me.....but i have started putting Orginal and Texan after my name, just so folks can tell us apart.
