    We've gotten these requests in the past but I want to start documenting them.

    @fp627 is now @penguins

    Might as well change @penguins to @Gentoo so he can explore his inner neckbeard.

    Good idea for a thread thou.

    @hooncake is temporarily @Cakecake due to sarcastic name change request.

    Just one request to members who are changing their user name, please don’t change your avatar at least for few weeks. I can relate to many established members thru their Avatar.

    I'm going to keep my avatar for a while for this reason although I was going to change it to a different penguin/s sometime next year - I think I'm the only penguin avatar on SBAF so it should still be easy enough but yeah, may could get slightly confusing with the cat or random picture type avatars.

    We could also have mods put "formerly ..." for the title under our name and avatar (in place of just Friend) for a month or two after the name changes? Or I can leave it in my signature for two or so months if mods / staff / several members request that name changers do this.

    Random story - I read somewhere that the variant or OS (terms used loosely) was named Gentoo b/c gentoo penguins swim the fastest. I would have picked Adelie though - probably the most amusing waddle of all the penguin waddles.

    Can I change my name to HotRatSalad so I can convey my love for Black Sabbath and Frank Zappa simultaneously ?

    I think that he wants "SalaD" and not "SalaS". Assuming it's a typo but just noticed.
