Username importance

17 posts in this topic

Hey everyone B)

 

I have a couple of accounts on PSN. Some might say too many.

 

Anyways, I can never seem to stick with an account because I don't think my username is "cool enough".

 

I'd love to hear your opinion on usernames and how important a PSN ID is to you. Have you ever accepted a friend request or joined a game invite because you thought the user ID was good and wouldn't have done it if the name had been different/boring?

Never happened to me, although i don't like playing with L33T people, find it annoying to say their names on the mic or message them.

Edit: Sprunkii is cool, easily a conversation started. If that doesn't have a meaning, i suggest making one up on case people ask.

Unless it's xXSupErQuickShotzsNipeRkingXx

Usernames on psn are like hotmail, you just can't change it. Sprunkii, spend some time here and the usernames don't project what the mind is thinking.

Lol hey I've felt this way about my name SIMPLY_CODY. mainly cause it's all in caps and looking at youtube gamers gamertag, psn, etc. always made me want to choose a better name. like PowerPyx for example. pretty badass name I wish I would've had that name.

 

But I agree with MrBloodmoney though. Its the actions that make it cool.

Name is actually very important to me.

For that reason, I don't even want to create new account for the purpose of 100% account or as JP main account.

Speaking as someone who has a name that is completely made-up and nonsensical, I think it'd be ill-advised for me to judge anyone else's choice of PSN name. It's always the person behind the name that matters most.

This reads like a George Costanza thread.  :lol:  The majority of people don't give a shit as much as you seem to, OP. Nobody's gonna reject your friend request because your name isn't BADASS_MOTHER_FUCKER_69.

I don't think it's too important as long as you're happy with it. My Username isn't anything special but I like it. Don't decide based on what others might think about the Username and decide based on what you think. :)

Thank you all for your nice replies.

 

It's great to get reassurance from you that it really is nothing to worry about so much. Sometimes you just need to hear (or read) that from strangers on the internet to believe it^^ :lol:

The only real reason that I am tied to the name is the same reason why I am tied to my real name.  Not because I like it so much I could not possible have another, but more simply because it is the name everyone I like and associate with would know me by.  It is just easier to keep my name, as I have been using it for the better part of a decade, and I use it as my username for everything I sign up for.

My name is half my real name and half what I do. Can't hate on that.

I don't really care what your username is, so long as you aren't a jerk.  Mines, I have been told is kind of offensive (the "Demon" part) so some people probably avoid me because of that. I really don't care though, don't really need narrowed minded people.

 

As for friend requests/game invites.  Friend requests are something I will only accept if I know you from the site or if you say something in the message.  Game invites, I don't have Plus so yea.. but if I did, I probably would accept an invite to the game if you were on my friends list and if I wanted to play that game/wasn't busy at the time.

Names really don't matter to me. Hell, half the time I'm not even looking, and I'd imagine it'd be the same for others. The person makes the name, never the other way around.

 

So just go with what you like and screw what anyone else thinks. It's really not a big deal.

Online names are important, they are our internet ID and can portray some information about us by using very little text.

Although not everyone will agree with that, and that is fine... so long as the user is happy that is all that really matters.

Pick something that you feel is enjoyable to portray yourself in the gaming community. Rather it be something you like/enjoy or completly random. It's all about what makes you happy at the end of the day. :)

I stick with that username on a lot of sites, I don't know why but I like it. 

 

I don't find usernames that important, though.
