Would we recognize your name?

So.... we're all pretty much anonymous here in the MR forums and most of us probably intend to stay that way. My question is though, is their anybody here who we would recognize your name if we knew it? You don't have to tell us who you are and you don't have to answer any guesses.

Nobody here would know me though I'm afraid... well... maybe like... 2 people. But I'm not sure why.

Interesting question Panda. I'm afraid I'm a "no".

Of course it has been often suggested that edesignuk is in fact Keira, so that one would be recognized.

Yes, most people would recognize my name, but that is only because it is very common.

I know edesign's name, but i'm not sure he knows mine. edit, ok he does.

Then again, it isn't too hard to find out edesign's name.

A few people on here know my name, iGav, Jelloshots, Britboy, cavemanUK.... cos we've met in London.

Outside of that I can be found in liner notes and credits on a stack of 80's and 90's recordings, cos I engineered them, but it's a name only the people in the bands would remember anyway.

I quite like the anonimity here, I know a few of my students and work friends browse these forums, and I'm certainly not going to let them know who I am here....

I don't think any of you can figure out my name. But I think there is one other person on these boards that live in Stockbridge, and I know there is one other person in Stockbridge who uses an Apple. So there might be one person who knows me.

I used to think it was a big secret and that I cared if people knew my name, but as soon as I started looking for a job and tried to get a reputation online as a good animator, I let everyone know who Adam Green is.

how's job-hunting going?
you should send your resume to the soon-to-be disney digital division.
at least we'd have a chance for ToyStory3 to be entertaining!

back on topic: no

I don't think anyone here would recognize my name, though on a few occasions I've met people who've said, "Hay, you're the person who ..."

Yep, I'm the person who (dot dot dot)

Yep, that's me.
