I am not sure how to approach this, I sure do not want it misconstrued or anyone to think I am posting this discussion out of malice. What I am trying to do is head off any confusion that you all my friends might experience. There is a newbie here in mylot, her name is angelwhispers30, I hope you all wish her welcome. What I want you to know is that it is not I...LMAO I do not have a double account... My eye will always be with me and I am Angelwhispers as I have been since 1999. My nick is very special to me and I never change it. Have you all ever run into this, found yourself with someone that shares your nick only to find friends being confused to the identity?

angel you are most welcome my dear friend! lol Do you mind if I call you 30 angelwhispers 30 - otherwise I may start getting really mixed up! lol Anyway you are right your namesake is a wonderful woman and she would not think twice about any confusion - you didn't mean any confusion and I am sure you will soon show your own feelings and characteristics! xxxx

Angel30, guts and tenacity I have, common sense sometimes alludes me however. I did feel a bit leary of posting this discussion. I am one who is pro active in warding off trouble not only for myself but for you. I am so thrilled you have joined me here in this discussion. I think for the most part you will find our mylot family as a whole a wonderful, loving, fantastic, creative, intelligent, loyal, OH I could go on and on group of people.

I know I've come across a few people here on Mylot who share similar names but are not the same person. I haven't found anyone with my name, yet. I'm the same way, I've been Desertdarlene since about 2004 or even earlier. Also, that name is for just about all my sites all over the internet. I use my last name for automobile chat sites and forums.

For years i could go onto any website and use my name and Av with out problem. Now I am beginning to see them more often... I just did not want you all thinking it might be me and me not respond to you in the fashion that I always do.

I saw someone with the same avatar, except it was blue and there was one other difference that I don't remember. I immediately thought of you. Now, if someone tries to use my current avatar, that would be a big problem because it's a picture of me and it's copyrighted, too.

I have seen it too Darlene, My friend actually made mine in 1999 when I changed my name from The Old Hag LMAO (yes I know it is pathetic) To angelwhispers. Anyway I wanted something that said I love in a unique way. It never occurred to either of us that we needed to copyright it at the time, because at that point in time the only thing I did was play spades in a place called IPLAY.NET. Now I have begun to see variations of even my Av. Argg You know what they say about hindsight. He knows and I know where it came from, so alls cool.

That's one good reason to keep your "eye" avatar! I ran into this before and found so many used a variation or the same nickname that I'm getting away from it. I won't leave you guessing, the nickname was Feather. I raise parrots :)

I raised Cocktiels for a few years. man what a job that is, 24/7 I was so glad when I sold that last bird. I will not even have a parakeet now, I detest cleaning up bird seed that much.

I raised cockatiels for a couple of years, that is until I have 50+ babies at one time. Cockatiel babies cry whether hungry or not! Can you imagine the noise? That's what made me get out of tiels! I still raise lovebirds, parakeets, quakers, green cheeks and amazons.

It has only happened to me once and that was in pogo. I had my sn there since 2001 and someone else created one identical cept the number on the end was one off from mine. That person came in the room and I was under a different sn (yes I have many identities in pogo) and e1 I knew was greeting that person as if it was me. After I almost split my pants laughing so hard, I finally said 'Ok e1, is the person ya'll just hugged is someone you really know or someone else.' They all claimed it was me and then I said, look at the number at the end. You really sure you know this person. lol That's when they all started in and wondering who I was and if they knew me since noone knew me under the sn I was using at that partiular time. I told em, yup, they knew me then disappeared and came back under my usual sn. Then I just casually said 'Hi everyone!' Just imagine what happened after that. lmao I felt sorry for the other person cause he/she was prolly thinking wtf. They had just created that sn and only had like 10 tokies. lol

Hey there. Well so far I haven't bumped into anyone with a name similar to mine, yet believe it or not "pyewacket" is a very commonly used user name, in fact, I use this name all over the place, but every once in awhile I have to do a variation of it, as my user name might already be taken on another place. Rather than sign up elsewhere where my user name is used as pyewacket1 or pyewacket2 or so forth I usually do a variation of the spelling such as pyewackete, or pyewackette, or pyewackat

Angel, darling, I don't care what anyone calls themselves - there is only ONE you! And anyone who knows you could never confuse you with anyone else. If it were me, I would wish she would change her name, though. After all, you had it first. I don't think anyone will ever have the name novataylor. I mean, who would? It's odd enough for one of us to have it, but two??? Nah, never happen. And who else is gonna be smutty enough to live up to it anyway?

You bet your sweet patooty there is only one me :)))LMAO Well, there is you and we seem to be bound together in some sort of past life or time. Asking her to change her name would be seen as selfish on my part I would think. Although I know mylot would do it with out her losing her posts. I think we can live with it. I do see a Nova on mylot, and when I am just glancing over posts she catches my eye, but she is not a NOVATAYLOR for a fact.

27 Apr 08
I totally forgot that, Angel - I've seen her too. Hmmm, I'm not too crazy about it either. But I don't think we would ever be mistaken for one another, not by anyone who knows me, anyway. And that's all that counts. Like you - no one who really knows you would be confused, do you think? I mean, you have a style all your own, Angel, seriously. Ain't no one a southern belle like you are. And I don't think it would be selfish for you to ask her to change her name, especially if she wouldn't lose any points or discussions or whatever. But that's just me, I guess. Maybe I'm more proprietary about your name than you are, lol. That protective nature I must have for you, sister, must be what it is. Love you baby.

LOL it never occurred to me that it was the same person and that you had a double account. I like the name angelwhispers and I am sure that many other people like it too, so it's natural to have someone else thinking about the same name. It's funny because my name is a mix of the initials of all our names in the family, I never thought that I would have problems with someone else choosing the same and a few months ago I was trying to enter arkaf as the id for another site and to my surprise there was already another arkaf there ! LOL

27 Apr 08
arkaf, My nickname is very special to me, when Glade came out with a candle by the same name my friend who made my Av and coined my nick actually went to his attorneys to see if there was something that could be done. But like my Av my nick should have been copywrited.

I guess it depends on how you feel about it. I love your nick and always like to see it when you appear in my email, and I'm sure many of us do. Copyrighting though, I am not sure. I feel that it would deprive other people that enjoy that nick as well from using - which is the purpose of course - and I don't know if I would want to do that. THe way I see it you are.. well you, angelwhispers the person. Nickname and person behind the nickname.The person that posts discussions that I enjoy and with who I share some views and ideas. Nobody else can be you as a whole - Nick+person - so even if someone appears with a nickname close to yours or just like yours with something else added that will be someone else because the combination nick/person will be different:)
