    Hi there Sandpit Mates and Randomers,

    Thought this might make for an interesting thread considering what hilarity sometimes goes on in here lol.

    I need to find a whole bunch of usernames to use for a job that I'm doing (not HP related!!). I would happily use billabongbob over and over, as I do as often as I can, but this job requires that I use many, many usernames for different things.

    So I thought who better to help me with this task, and have some random fun while we're at it lol, than you Hubbers big_smile big_smile.

    Go for it....................

    Do the names need to relate to the job in anyway?

    Are you looking for amusing or serious suggestions - I mean can they be names such as you would find in a pack of 'Happy Family' playing  cards for example?

      The names don't have to be related to anything in particular. I do tend to pick them out of the air by relating them to whatever I am doing in that instance, but not always lol.

      Some of them tend to be rather random, just like me lol. I'm looking for both serious and amusing suggestions, both of which I'm likely to use wink.

      So blow yourself out 2eusday, I knew what I was letting myself in for I first posted this, was banking on it actually big_smile wink

      Looking forward to hearing what your random thinking can come up with wink

    I don't want to take any "joy" out of that particular job for you (and not that you'll even care what I say here anyway), but watch out for a job like that.  I signed up with an assignment site years ago, and one of the assignments advertised as "writer" turned out to be some guy that wanted me to think up a bunch of different profiles, pretend to be all those "people", and then post links to his stuff through my own Yahoo account (and others) (which, of course, would have meant I was risking have my Yahoo account closed if I did what that so-called "job" required).  The guy at the time got really angry at me and said, "Oh come on.  You weren't born yesterday.  You know this is what people do."   I told him he was right.  I wasn't born yesterday (and neither are a lot of other people who would recognize iffy behavior (that meant I would essentially being his dirty work) as easily as I did.  His thinking that I'd do his dirty work for him would seem to have indicated that it was he - not I - who had been born yesterday.  roll

    I hadn't had as much Internet experience then as I have now.  Since then I've learned to recognize a lot of things that give off really "iffy" vibes and are obviously a matter of someone's not being on the up-and-up.  I know I'm probably not telling you about something that you don't already know exists, and what jobs you take aren't my business (of course); but the fact that you even say you're at all interested in such a job does make a person (me, anyway) wonder if you're not "mis-estimating" a lot of people on the Internet.

    Now that I've added my very un-hilarious post, though, maybe some more people will create a little more fun-like environment on your thread.  (Sorry, but those multiple-user-name" jobs just send alarm flags to some people.  hmm)

      I've been doing this particular (username related) job for a while and all is good  . And I do care about what you have to say, I've come to trust certain Hubbers and respect their opinions, especially here in the Sandpit.

      Fortunately I'm aware of the kind of dangers that you mentioned in your post, but there are many people out there that aren't. So thank you for pointing these things out, It's appreciated .
