Do you ever get annoyed at your choice of username? I get so annoyed with my choice of username because I'm sick of constantly getting friendship requesting stating something along the lines of the following:

"I've always wanted to be friends with someone famous"

It's at times like this that I really regret my choice of username ...

I find that amusing. But I can see how those would get old.

I'd probably change my username given the chance, but I like it enough.

Yeah, well it was alright at the beginning but now every time I log I have at the least 3 more friend requests for that reason. The most I've ever had is 13 friendship requests for that reason in the space of less than 12 hours!

I think that's awesome. You're popular just for asserting you're popular. Kind of like the Kardashians.

Well it's not like popular member are sending me requests. I'm getting hundreds of requests from debaters that have only been on the site for less than 1 week. Not exactly popularity.

Yes. The first thread I created on this site was an inquiry about if there's any way to change my username.

Eh just change your measurements to quantity instead of quality, and use it.

Heck, we had a guy named Jifpop who was a revolution a year back. He gathered as many noobs as he could, and they spammed DDO so hard they literally broke it. Hen Imabench took them down single handedly suffering a temp ban in the battle, but that's the power of new members if you know how to handle them.

Yeah but he got banned in the end. Anyway, I'm not sure if creating this thread was the best idea. Since creating this thread I've received over 20 friend requests for the exact reason stated in post 1.

Yeah, he got banned. He's actually back, but he seems to have reformed quite a bit. I'm just saying use your friends wisely. There is power in numbers.

But yeah, don't give the trolls material. They will wreck you. They're my lot, but they're a bit rowdy sometimes.

You're lucky. I get so many notifications and because there are so many I don't actually know when I'm getting a real notification and sometimes I miss some important notifications because of it.

I find the 'hundreds' hard to believe. It's probably like 4.

It's about 5 - 10 per day so in the long term hundreds is realistic.

Fixed.

I kind of got that. It wouldn't be coincidental that you posted a request like that almost instantly after this thread was created.

No, that's still not believable.
Besides you weren't using 'hundreds' in that kind of context.

Most people (assuming they are *very* active) could possibly have over 100 'friend' requests over a prolonged period of time; however you implied that you are receiving 'hundreds' on a regular basis.

It wasn't supposed to be implied like that. I meant that over 2 weeks I get around 100 friendship requests.
