Sarcosmic = sarcasm + cosmic Sarcastic
is probably the single best word to describe me when talking at any given moment, whether I mean to be or not. Cosmic
represents my longstanding love of both the awe-inspiring cosmos above and the wonders around us here on Earth. Super
Things I am + things I love
(but only things that have never changed).
That is my new username.
For posterity, my usernames on this account have been:
- Sir-Herp-of-Derp (6/13/2012, creation)
- Sir-Herp (2014?)
- SuperSarcosmic (6/2/2017)
I ended up enjoying the introspective process of finding a more fitting username for myself, so here's a shot of my brainstorming doc so you can see how ridiculous some of the names were. I finally got to test out my first pixel font, too. :'D Other things included:
THINGS THAT I'D WANT TO INCORPORATE
- space / nebula / stars
- rocks / earthy stuff
- ghosts? / superpowers?
WORDS/THINGS I LIKE/WANT IN A NAME
- gender neutrality
- easy to say/remember
- looks nice written + sounds good
- can use as artist name
- not embarrassing
- able to use for many more years
There was also a list of words/things I don't want to be associated with, and a huge
list of words that describe me, ranging from blue to potato. ...So there's that. Hope you got a kick outta it, cuz I did, haha. Hopefully seeing my process can be helpful to others thinking about changing their username.
Wee rant now, mmkay?
Had my heart set on "Sarcosmic" for the past few months since it fits me better. Typed it in the url to check if it was free, got the standard 404 as hoped.
My Core finally kicked in (after several days of waiting), so I tried to change it... but an alert said it was taken.
Hardcore hoping it was a bug, I asked what was up. My gripe: how am I supposed to know the name's taken by a deactivated group when the page doesn't tell me?!
It's a standard 404, which pops up on any page when the user doesn't exist yet, so I had no reason to assume the name was taken. I'd already changed my name on multiple sites in anticipation, so heck yeah
, this was an inconvenience;;;;
Anyways, since the url was also taken on tumblr and consistency's preferred, I settled on my backup: SuperSarcosmic
