theres so many ways to go about selecting a new username and you certainly dont want to regret it a few weeks later after its been tested out....

whats your advice so I dont fuck it up?

what makes a good username? powerful? memorable? jovial? short? ambiguous?

I still have a hard time picking one I wanna use on my twitch, twitter etc. Changed it more than 7 times in the last 5 years and still not happy, lmao. Now gotta wait 2 months again to change it back on twitch, cause once again I made a hasty decision.

pick something cute and fun, like FaintColt388301

and yeah, names with a single letter on a line alone are a bit jarring

Do you have any hobbies that it could pertain to?
"I Sniff Bicycle Seats" has a nice ring to it.

Wordplay is nice. You know like for example McDonalds use “Mc” before every name. You can change yours to McCunt Upsize or McDick

Mine isn’t something special, just a character name from JJBA.

I don't know. I tend to change my name way too often. I don't even know if Bushido Boi is a good username. I like it, I suppose. I mean, I've been using it for a while now. :messenger_dizzy:

Mine is the name of a disco from a TV series white a little twist.

Catch a name you fancy and do the same.
