    If you didn't want everyone to know that your username is your real name, then why did you voluntarily share that information on this publicly visible thread? If you simply remained silent, everyone would have continued thinking that your name is just an anonymous handle.

    Hmm it doesn't show a suggestion to select a user when I type @X , and I didn't receive a notification that you tagged me, just that there was a new post in the thread.

    Either way, was just trying to give a tip that short usernames aren't as friendly for tagging in general, at least in my experience lol

    @X that is interesting... I can tag you without a "tagged" notification?

    Did you just recently change your username? I remember seeing your aviator but with a different username.

    I did, I'd had the old one since high school and decided it was time for an upgrade after 10 years lol.

    But thats the beauty of JR VIP and why everyone should upgrade, so you can change your username once per year if you decide down the road you don't like your choice.

    Yeah, I had username similar to my real name before back in 2016, but then I re-register to a new username in 2017.
    I just pick a random name here:
    http://www.namegenerator.biz/pseudonym-generator.php

    And then, just use a password manager (Keepass/Lastpass/Bitwarden) to memorize it.
