Hello, everyone! It's me, Helpful Aurora Parker. I want to ask you all a question: Who regrets their Message Boards name? I used to (because I wished to make it "The Dashing Swashbuckler" after I realized you could do a different name, and I thought it had to be your actual Pirate name, not the name of your choice), but now I'm fine with "Helpful Aurora Parker".

So, do you regret your Message Boards name or wish you had named it differently? After all, you can't really change it after you name yourself (and I think I'm starting to understand why)!

Well my fourm name is my main wizard's name. One thing I wish was a feature for the fourms is having a separate fourm names.

Well, I made my message board name while I was hungry, sleep deprived, and muddling through allergies. (At least those are the best excuses I can make for creating this name) Now to the problem of my name itself, well it's the name of a nation, in game, as i'm sure you all know. (And even though it's my favorite) Where's the creativity in that? The second part of my name, 073. Where'd I pull that number from, you may ask. I didn't, it happened to be the first suggestion after the part that said THIS NAME IS TAKEN. I might've been ok with the Marleybone part if it a better number after it like 101 (But it was most likely taken anyway).So... yes I regret my message board name.

Haha, that's actually a nice name! Don't feel bad. I think we all are cats and dogs at heart!

I'll probably regret saying this, but tf you really hate your message board name, I'll give you a one-time change. Send me an email to community@pirate101.com.

My first name didn't get it through.

So I decided on "Darkmoordude" If that didn't work, I was thinking of "TimeForceTrain"

Looking back at it; thank Bonnie Anne it got approved

I love my name, thank you very much!
It's wonderfully dull, so people don't get too wrapped up in figuring out how to pronounce it.
Way better than Numuhukumakiaki'aialunamor.

I don't regret my board name, and it's easier to say in W101 because for some reason, Esperanza Devereaux gets filtered out.
I also like the fact that as our accounts in both games are linked, we can know the posters on both boards.
I've been noticing that more wizards are coming over here and posting, welcome all!

Me! I no longer play my muskeeteer (Brave Alexandra Armstrong), and really wish I hadn't made that my board name. I might ask Tom to change it......

Definitely still love my board name. CdeWinter, named after my favourite literary female villain. Although, to be clear, it actually does not stand for Countess de Winter, but her full name, Clarice de Winter.

I made my name when I was much younger and less creative.

I liked Witchdoctors and I liked my name Darius so I decided to make it witchdoctor Darius, pretty simple but now I prefer to be known as "Spellbinder" I am going to try change my name to that if I can!

Finally got mine changed to Vanessa Mythdust. When I originally made my account (years and years ago), I remember getting some kind of error message after typing in "Vanessa Mythdust" (I don't remember the error, I just know it wasn't that it was taken). I tried again ... same result. I finally tried "Vanessa M" just to see if THAT would go through and ... of course it did.

You guys have no idea how long that's urked me.

I know it's not piratey, but the accounts are linked. I do have a second account named Virtuous Vanessa though, if I decide to change things up.

I actually love Helpful Aurora Parker, as it makes things much easier so I don't have to use a signature for people to know who I am. If someone would just skim through my post and not even read the whole thing, the first things they would look for is who wrote it and when they wrote the reply, or if it's an actual thread then it's who wrote it and what's the name of the thread. If they know the person, they'll read the post. And, of course, if it's a long post, people won't read unless a major key point is in bold and attracts interest.

So no name-changing for me, thank you!

I love Indigo Ring! As my role-playing mind and imagination could literally take me anywhere, I can imagine such a backstory with an "Indigo Ring"! Is it a secret treasure? Is it some kind of ancient treasure that has powers that was a belonging of Indigo's parents? If I expressed all of my role-playing thoughts on your name, Indigo, it would be a thousand characters past the limit, ja!

Yes, it's a very nice offer. Thank you very much, but to make a moderator's day much easier I request no name-changing as for my account.

(P.S. "Ja", or even "ayuh" [from Jonah Town] is a term from Grizzleheim that the Bears always used to say. As I was raised in Grizzleheim, you're probably going to hear me say that quite a bit when I think very highly of a certain thought or opinion! )

Welcome to the Message Boards, Misty!

If Brave Alexandra Armstrong was your Message Boards name (I actually love it ), your name shows up right now as The Stalwart Queen! Great choice.

• I want to let you all know - all of the people that want your names changed - that Jack said "one-time only". So if you really hate your Message Boards name, you can let him know at community@KingsIsle.com, but you need to remember that it must be a very wise choice! If you are to change your name, you must choose a name that you're not going to hate later on and want to change it and feel bad because you can't, because you already used that one-time offer!

Aurora, the original Indigo Ring was a npc (non-player character) in a D&D campaign many years ago - sort of a Robin Hood bandit type, but with a perverse sense of humor. He had a brother named Calloway. They proved very popular in the original campaign in which they appeared, so they (esp. Indigo) have made guest appearances in other campaigns through the years.
