A lot of us are attached to our forum usernames; we don't want to change them because we like them. And others like to change usernames like they change socks.
For those who like to stick with the classics, you might wonder "what if" regarding the clever possibilities of an alternate username. The kind of name that tells this niche audience that "I know my stuff, and you'll understand my name if you know yours."
ie. to show my rail interest, I could change my username to "Mile 113."
Or a west coast classic ferry fan could change to "PFS."
Or a political farce fan could have the username "Potable Water."
What are some other usernames that are clever in the obscure "you need to know your stuff to understand it" kind of way ?
What are some of the more cleverly obscure usernames that you've seen here already?
I already did mine. I started out as orcasnative, but when it was brought to my attention that Kahloke means "White Swan", it was obvious that was what I needed to change my username to. And, to honor the venerable old Blackball Ferry MV Kahloke, EGFleet sent me some great historical pics of her, one of which is my avatar.

A lot of our discussion is about aesthetics, and our displays are another detail thing that some of us pay attention to.
I posted because I noticed it, and thought it would be an interesting observation to share.
I still think that presentation styles, and issues surrounding them, are interesting. And unintentionally ambiguous things are even more interesting to me. And peoples reactions, are even more & more interesting to me.
Thanks for the entertainment.
And to specifically respond to Mr. Cassidy's comment, just because I make a comment on one item doesn't mean that I place it higher in importance than other issues. I just made a casual observation comment, and didn't realize that I was expected to sort it into some hierarchy of issues.
