Randomly generated usernames tend to look terrible and out of place. If everything is FirstLastYear, accounts look unnatural. Tools that can do things like combine random nouns and adjectives are better, but still seem out of place especially if you're using a ton of different accounts. Easy solution: Scrape usernames that people actually use and make slight modifications This is a great method to get a wide variety of usernames, with a good mix of niche-related names, that look very natural. Here's a super easy way to do this. 1. Get a content scraper. This is a super easy-to-use browser extension for Chrome that I have used for miscellaneous things for years: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...jd?utm_source=chrome-app-launcher-info-dialog 2. Find a forum that you want to scrape usernames from. Can be basically anything - Reddit, Quora, Yahoo Answers, etc. Can be a good idea to scrape from a different forum from where you want to actually use the accounts. If you want to get niche-related usernames, reddit is a good option. I'll do an example here. Consider a situation where you want to generate usernames that you could use when shilling for athletic equipment. Go to a forum related to athletics, such as: https://www.reddit.com/r/Basketball/new/ 3. Scrape the Usernames To scrape from reddit using the scraper extension linked to: a. Click "Scrape Similar" in the tool b. Enter this into the selector field (XPath): //*[contains(@Class, 'author')] Don't know anything about XPath? This command lets you find an HTML element by CSS class using XPath. The username fields on reddit uses the css class "author". You can adjust the name of the class as needed if you want to use this somewhere else. If you're scraping form somewhere else, using something that isn't XPath, or are using a different tool you'll of course need to adjust the selector/input. 4. Example Result of Scraping After following the above steps on the "New" page of reddit's Basketball forum, these are the names that were scraped: rsrsrsrs townie_immigrant JoeAllan theReluctantHipster Seppecx alexin9th bluexdd UltimateZ906 onegeeheeone nachofromsweden hoophacking anklerollguard ShizzleStorm OverEmotionalCavsFan CritThom onegeeheeone BhiefBeef Dragon--- Lakersnation40 kwazaer113 wadsworthandrea museirish mcgoverntowanda pornkingdas GeorgeThomasClark J0ak3s blueberrybadguy Yeti_Boi DatDudeJB19 Reddit has 25 names per page. This query actually ended up getting us 29 since it scraped the moderator's usernames from the sidebar too. You can see that since these were scraped from a Basketball subreddit/forum, a good mix of sports/basketball related names are mixed in while also having other names from more casual users. It is a natural mix of niche-related usernames. Note: If you have the NeverEndingReddit extension installed, you can load many pages on the same page so that you can scrape a lot of usernames with one run of the extension. Or load a thread with a lot of comments if you want to scrape a lot at a time Note 2: Scraping from the "new" section can be better than scraping from the top posts because this will get you a wider variety of names. The people who have top posts may be well known users, so using names of the newer posters may make using variations of their names be more natural. Ideally you will use the names on a different forum anyway. 5. Adjust the Usernames (if using on the same forum that you've scraped from) If you're going to use the names on a different website entirely, you could skip this step. For example if you scrape names from Reddit to then use on Twitter, you may not need to change them. If you want to reuse elsewhere on the same site, then you'll want to modify the names slightly. There are a few ways to do this: a. Automated spin (mediocre) You can use an Excel formula or similar to easily do things like add underscores in random positions in the username, change the letter "E" to "3", append a random number at the end, etc. If you want to take this approach, here's an Excel formula that you can try: =left(replace(A1,RANDBETWEEN(1,len(A1)), 0, "_"),20) * Inserts an underscore at a random location * If username generated is over 20 characters, crop out any chars after the 20th one (max length of a reddit username is 20 characters) Adjust as needed. You could easily write a better spin with a Python script or similar. Here's the output of the Excel formula above: rsrsrs_rs townie_immi_grant _JoeAllan theReluctantHipst_er Sep_pecx alexin_9th bluexd_d U_ltimateZ906 onege_eheeone nac_hofromsweden _hoophacking ank_lerollguard Shiz_zleStorm OverEmotional_CavsFan Cr_itThom onege_eheeone Bh_iefBeef Dragon_--- Lakersn_ation40 _kwazaer113 w_adsworthandrea museir_ish _mcgoverntowanda _pornkingdas GeorgeThomas_Clark J0a_k3s blueberrybad_guy Y_eti_Boi DatDud_eJB19 b. Manual Spin (better method) Make minor changes in a way that is logical. For example, if the username has a number consider changing it to another number, add an underscore or dash in a logical place, change a word around like "Lakers" to "Blazers" or "Beef" to "Veal", etc. Example result (took maybe two minutes to do): rsrsrsrsrs town_immigrants JoeAllanCarter MyReluctantHipster Seppecxx alexin12th blue-xdd UltimateZ096 onegoohooone nachofromdenmark hoopsmacking anklerollpointguard ShizzleStorms OverEmotionalEaglesFan CriticalThom onegeeheeone4 BhiefVeal Dragons--- Lakersnationrules40 kwazaer123 wadsworthandrew musicalirish mcgoverntowanda94 pornkingdanny George_Thomas_Clark J0ack3s blueberryvillain Yeti_Bois ThatDudeJB19 It takes maybe five seconds to spin each name and you'll get better results; you could spin 720 in an hour. Or get a VA or employee to do it for you. 6. Create the Accounts You can do this either through an automated tool if you have access to one or pay a VA with decent proxies to make the accounts for you. 7. Collect Money Great. Now you have a bunch of accounts with usernames that are widely varied and natural. Use them however you please -- do forum marketing, sell accounts, or whatever else you can imagine. Conclusion Hope this method is useful to some of you out there. I've been using this method as one of various ways to get forum accounts with real-looking usernames for a while now and have always had good results. It's an easy method to do as well, so you can easily teach the whole process to a VA or employee to save time. Any questions on this method, feel free to ask! If you have good methods to generate realistic usernames in bulk for forum marketing, please post in the comments. I'd be glad to hear them.
