forum users / moderator name changes

Whats it all about?

every week some moderators names change. I can understand someone being called 'paulgtst' as a example and buying a GTR and wanting a name change to - 'paulGTR' , but whats with the random name changes ?

It makes it hard when looking for a certain member or reading through posts and remembering what someone had said and then all of a sudden you now have to work out that someone else is actually the same person the next day.

Really annoys me and i find it makes using the forum difficult at times.

So whats the reason behind all the name changes?

Given that this doesnt seem to have happened for aaages - I thought your thread was bemoaning the sudden lack thereof...

I feel cheated now

And to be honest I am the only moderator who changes their name...everyone else stays the same.

How exactly does this affect you?
