This was back in 2010 when i wanted to create a YouTube account, and i tried thousands of nicknames but they just wouldn't accept it. At the same time, I was watching some report on TV about the Portuguese football federation which is fpf. My favorite musician back then was Bruno Mars, so i typed bm, and 54 was my favorite number. :lol:
And when i got to UKmix, i primarily wanted to focus on posting my Personal charts, so i kept the name.. worst mistake ever. :lol:
I never wanted to share this story because i didn't want to give MarcusGDJTPDFJFST3445346 teas, but it's too late, the drags will be real.. :cry: :cry:
Classic :lol: :lol: :lol:

The story behind the username that looks like a password.

I'm sure your password is something very readable, like Marcus or something.

Given that my username is an acronym of the colours on the rainbow flag, I wish I could have thought of a combination that's easier to pronounce, like Pyborg or Prygob or GYBPro... who am I kidding, all anagrams suck :lol:

If I could change my username, I'd prolly choose George, but I just checked and it's been taken anyway - spelt with a lower-case g too. :P

I thought it was very clear how it was pronounced - gr-eye-bop, isn't it? Makes me think of a dancing monster! :lol:
Or do some think it's gr-ee-bop? You said your username origin before - i thought it was cute.

Yes, it's gr-eye-bop, but it's how some people spell it that bothers me. I usually get refered to as Grypop and Grybob and someone actually called me Bob once. :x

We had a temporary amnesty, as a one off.

This isn't an ongoing thing.

Next time we have an amnesty, apply for a name change then.

I've had a PM about this subject, and I can see quite a few comments in here so I thought it helpful to clarify.

There are currently no plans to allow a username amnesty in its current form at the moment, for reasons that will eventually become clear - I appreciate this is quite vague, but it will all make sense in due course.
