    Default Does the username make the person?

    Sure, usernames are meant to be more creative and unrealistic when compared to our real names. I mean, I've never seen a user named "Johnathan Fitzgerald" or whatever. But, even so, I do find myself making assuptions about certain people, based on their username. I find myself thinking that some nOOb with a stupid name is actually stupid; without even knowing them. C'mon, who is going to take a name like "Sasuke_is_hawt" seriously? But really, do you ever prejudge - or ignore - someone on a forum, just because of their username?

    No, I can't say I ever did. But, say, if a person with a bad/lame/weird username would randomly spill something like "Omgwtfbbq, wud u/wana b ma fr1nd??!!!!11" or something like that, I'd naturally feel "disgusted" (is there a lighter term to use?) If that kind of people couldn't spell one word correctly/randomly flame people in an unbelievably immature way or something, then yes, I'd rather have some prejudice which I can't turn off.

    But normally, I never judge people by their username.

    Why would you judge people by their username? I mean, just cause its dumb or something doesn't mean they are too.

    I think it's the users choice whether it does or not. In my case, I've taken my ego as well as some inner thoughts and put it to my name. Does everyone know what it means? Not at all. But I do, friends do, etc.

    Say what you will, but the username that a person chooses does say something about them. Just like your own outward appearance, it's a first impression thing.

    If you choose a more original name, you are generally demonstrating some creative ability. A person with the name "goku iz hot937476" will probably not be taken as seriously right away as someone with a more original name, no matter who is more capable of intellectual conversation.

    Really, it's very difficult to avoid making judgements based on outward appearance. Stereotypes exist for a very good reason: Because they are generally accurate. I'm certainly not saying that it's impossible to have "munkysrkewl" provide insightful contributions to our more controversial debate threads. But I am saying that the majority of the people who are contributing the most tend to have names that are a bit more original.

    But just like everything, you can't know the whole story without finding out more information. Without hearing him out once or twice, you just can't know for sure if "Archimedes" will provide thought-provoking ideas, or if he'll just be an owl hooting into a crowd.

    In retrospect Vega may have been a better username but I picked Sagat because I like his character, I love muay thai, and I love the background and rivalry Sagat has with Ryu. Regex is right in that people tend to pick usernames that reflect themselves.

    I think Masali is right. I mean, the person may be really nice but little to none can avoid judging someone. I wont give an example but there are very outragous usernames out there. But oh well. It's kind of a first impression I guess.

    Everyone makes a good point. I honestly, can't help but judge a person by the username if it's especially outrageous. And 2/3 of the time, I'm right or at least pretty close. But look who's talking. I started out as animefreak91. Not the most serious username to be introduced as. But that name will stick with me.

    If a member's name was something a bit...well odd, I'd be wary of them, but I don't automatically assume they're stupid. I've seen many a member with immature names make great points, and hold up a side of a debate very well.

    That's what the change username function is useful for.I feel changing your name is a sign of growth (well at least sometimes), kind of like breaking out of the newbie mold.

    Like others said before, as much as we want to say we don't judge based on usernames, we do. Or at least I do. That's just a first impression, though. Once I see their posts, my opinions usually change.

    You didn' _quite_ understand what I'm was saying. I don't have the same ways to express myself, please have mercy ^^°
    I actually meant, that I don't judge people by their username, I judge them by their behaviour. I already said that my friends have stupid usernames too, but I still get along with them.

    But I can't help thinking about the username that the ones that can't behave like anyone else and can't spell anything in the forum EVEN if I think that's fundamentally wrong. ^^ Do you get my point? If not, I'm sorry, bad English day xD;;

    *joins in the frenzy...

    Regex has strong arguement points on this matter, which I agree. So, I don't have much to say. Yeah, your username choice partially reflects the personality and mentality of the user.

    However, in my opinion, the same concept apply to the email name address. Those who constantly changing e-mails addresses and have popular words/weird names according to current trends and such; probably either an attention seeker or have difficulty of remembering username and password, generally.

    Same goes to forum username, in AF case, we find them in chatroom as well as the forum thread. For me, if I want to know the mentality of the username, I read few of his/her post replies and decide he/she is worthy a person he/she is.

    However, sometime I will get prejudgmental when I came across such names like "Sasuke_iz_hawt!" or with prefix/suffix particular number on that name. Most of the time, they just seeking attention from others with the same brain wavelenght as him/her or/and they make immature comments on thread with serious issues.

    Everyone has the right to have uniqueness in their username, however, sometimes being too unique don't get you anywhere.

    I rest my case...

    cant say I've ever ignored someone or hated them for thier username.... if they acted stupid orsomething like that , then I hated them... but for thier name? nope. C'mon.. I chose Crimson Phoenix afterall....... and I'm hardly gonna come back in a blaze of fire after I die right? So I dont care what someone wants to call themselves.... unless its really stupid like that Nazi thing someone mentioned above..... and even then I'd simply shake my head and wonder what was was wrong with em.....

    I openly admit I prejudge - I try not to but your username (and email address) is sort of how you "dress" on the internet. Whether you admit it or not, you do judge people on how they're dressed. Is it a bad thing? Well - that's for you to decide - but let's face it, if you have an interview for a job you really like, you're going to show up in some nice clothing, not a ratty old t-shirt and jeans.

    Ditto forums in a way I think. I tend (without even realizing it) to skim over posts of the people that have a bunch of numbers, sTiCkY CaPs, !~~rediculous~~! **decorations**, etc etc... because they're "dressed sloppily." Fortunately I'm often pleasantly surprised to be proven wrong, but it's an important thing to consider. (In other words don't be like the graduate student my dad had to deal with who continued to use her [email protected] email address in official research email, making herself look unprofessional and dragging down the rest of the team.)

    I'd never ignore a person based on their username; some usernames, such as sasuke_rocksmysocks make me laugh, but I'd never ignore the person.

    But yes, I agree in saying that people tend to pick a username that reflects their interests and personality. I used to be Ami_the_2nd, but I changed it to something that could be easily remembered. I used to love Sailor Moon, and at the time, it represented my personality. I've been thinking about changing it, actually.

    A username is something that should be given consideration when being created. "Sasuke_is_hawt" is a prime example of an uncreative username. This has all been said before, so I'll just say that the username is something that should reflect some aspect of you.

    Me, for example, Faceless is a term I use to describe one without an identity. You all know me as Faceless, but could or should really care less about my given and last name. I'm just another face in the crowd, someone who doesn't stick out, thusly Faceless. See?

    InUyaShA_ROX is some random name that shows no intelligent thought, thusly the user will most likely be overlooked.

I was pretty much right, With Sagats powerful ego and military background and with the" If you don't agree with me, I couldn't care less, cause what ever I say is right" type of attitude. Which ofcourse isn't bad, but that was my prejudge.

    The name Vega wouldn't fit you at all. you seem more like a manly man, not someonme who would throw a fit, if he had gotten a little cut on his face.

    Agreed, but to clarify: I was using the name Vega in context to the leader of Shadowloo - known as Bison in the US. When you say Vega, are you talking about the masked bull fighter known as Balrog in the original?

    Just wanted to satisfy my own curiosity

    I belive the username doesn't make the person. But there are cases that sometimes it does. That is when the person intentiually writes a username to express themselves.

    i guess it really depeneds. it could depect you as either a fangirl/fanboy a jerk, someone who doesnt give a crap about others opinion, or other things like that. Mine reflects my love and devotion to the greatest couple eeveer! made my moi and my best friend ^^
    I tried to be someone else, but nothing seemed to change. I know now, this is who I really am inside. Finally found myself fighting for a chance.I know now, this is who I really am.
