Salaam.

I was actually going to rant this off on my blog, but decided not to. So anyway, I'm assuming many of you use Messenger to chat with buddies and friends online.

Now if you're like me and been using the Internet for 8 years, you'll have gone through all the phases of using Messenger. One of them is to change your Messenger screen name like every 2-3 days. Eventually you grow out of that and change it routinely - like you have a few favourites and change them every now and then depending on your mood. And then years later you become like me and keep your actual name as your screen name and say to yourself I'll never change it till the day I die. Right.

However, I've come across a bunch of guys who use Messenger and change their screen names like every 2-3 hours or so. It doesn't get me pissed off as pissed off, but a little confused. Especially when you have a lot of contacts online, some pratt keeps jumping about on your list depending on the first character of their new screen name.

I guess what I would like to ask is, if you're one of these crazy Messenger users who change their screen names a lot, why? Why do you do it?

On another note, I can't wait till they start giving the feature for Messenger when you can label your contacts as you wish and not be on the other end of their disturbing habit.

I change my Msn screen name like around every two to three days...sometimes even more...sometimes it stays the same for a couple of weeks. I guess it depends on my mood. Or sometimes when i've read a nice quote or I put it to that. No reason actually. Just for fun.

I change mine whenever i can think of something stupid and/or strange. One time it was: laying the smackdown on carebares. At present its: full of surprises and hot air. My all time favourite however was: i'm the white oompa loompa.

There are few reasons why people change it so frequently:

1) Because they are so creative, they just can’t decide which title to have so they switch every few minutes just to satisfy their genius statues.
2) Because they can.
3) To annoy people on their list
4) To confuse others about who they are so that later on they may say to them “You’re hallucinating mate, I didn’t change my screen title!”
5) Because they are bored and have nothing better to do
6) They want to get people interested so they can say “Wot does ur title mean?” or “Who are talking about?”

Ever since I've had MSN, I've been able to keep one name for several months. (Mainly cuz ever since I had MSN I'd sign in every several months...)

But in all seriousness, I keep it simple. No need to keep changing. :p

loq Silver Pearl. :p

Yeah, display pictures too. I have a few, but only change them every now and then. Most of the times it's at someone's request.

I don't change my name that often. I'm hardly ever on MSN as it is.

My current name is 'Hello Mister Fancy Pants', because I heard it in this movie and it made me laugh. It's funny in the context of the film, but makes very little sense in isolation. But then, a lot of my contacts have weird MSN names like that.

Well part of my username never changes whilst the other half changes whenever i feel like changing it.

So it's:

Black Country Lass: _________< message i change sometimes goes there.

I think its a good idea by adding a hadith/ayah or a quote from a famous sahabi as your msn nick. It's easy da'wah..
