    I'm guessing some sort of April Fools joke? Freaked me out for a second. Thought the site had been hacked.

    I only noticed my name at first, and I thought someone had hacked my account. I was guessing which friend I had to punch.

    Ah, didn't see that other thread. LOL...nice little trick. The pattern is interesting...my name isn't the same all over the site. In one thread I'm
    "Incognito", in another I'm "Groupie", in another I'm "Unrivaled"...heh, I like that one ;)

    Weird, I'm always "Unstoppable" in every thread.

    It speaks the truth.:D

    Good one.:p

    It seems when you are viewing threads from the main forums page, the names differ from what are actually in the threads.

    EDIT: For example, when I just viewed this thread from the main page, it says "Ever-present Cassie."

    But in the thread it says "Unstoppable Cassie".

    I've cruised through the Members List and it seems like some of the nicknames have been used more than once, I wonder if that's the case for all of them or not... :eek:

    Haha. Look at the bottom of the page where the online members are (usually) shown.

    Aren't you supposed to be shy? ;)

    EDIT: wtf, If I see my username from the index I am "ever-present" but if I enter the thread I am "fortunate". Maybe I lost me "ever-presentness"?

    only rather shy, and besides, i'm only making very small, unimportant, generally vague comments. And I used the :eek: smiley

    ;)

    Incidentally, I seem to be the first Rather Shy on the member list (sorted by post count as default), so I don't know how many others of me there are, but maybe if I sit here long enough they'll come up to me...
