Greetings, BrowserWarVet, and thank you for joining the wiki all about rapturous mammary glands! I hope you enjoy your time here. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:34, 27 February 2014 (UTC)

Thanks, my default web time killer has been the RW random article link for quite a while now, so I am sure I'll be fine.
Though one RW quirk that I don't really get is how some people name themselves.... are you Stabby, Radioactive or Misanthrope, or a combo? On this site some people seem to have signatures saying one thing whilst their username differs. I guess the general convention is to call people by what they are labeling themselves at the time?

My experience so far, for what it's worth, is that nobody seems to care whether you call them what they're currently labeling themselves or what they've labeled themselves previously (with perhaps a few rare exceptions). In general, there's no hard and fast rule or convention on the subject though. - Grant (Talk) 18:59, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Sounds like so much of the internets and its communities. Like an IRC channel where a regular might stick to one nick for years, changes it one day, but the old-guard sometimes still harmlessly address the person by their original nick. I dunno why I thought there was any "quirk" at all! BrowserWarVet (talk) 19:12, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
That definitely seems to be how it works, yes. I never really thought of it that way, as the only real online community I've been a part of previously was that of an online game, and because I was one of the first people there, I always had a clear idea of what to call people. When I first came to RW I faced a bit of a dilemma, as very few people were referred to by their current nickname, which confused the hell out of me. - Grant (Talk) 19:17, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
