Who is "Ashby"?

Guys,

A simple question: Who the hell is Ashby? I've been away from here for some time, and now all I see is "Nathan Ashby", "The REAL Nathan Ashby", "Ashby the Wise" etc.

SO who is Ashby (and no, this isn't punishment for not being on the boards enough).

I'm pretty confident it's not TM, as he's still Prometheus I think.

Thanks,

- Archmagus Micael

Look at the topic I made labled "Ash?"
The question was already answered.

'tis a tribute to the one and only Ash. Compare to the kind of inspiring scene where in "Spartacus" (a film I only read about on Wikipedia btw), everyone gets up one by one saying "I am Spartacus".

Or, if you favor less action-packed movies, the equally inspiring scene in "Dead Poets' Society" (a film I read the book of, but never saw) where, at the end, all the students climb on their desk in a mute protest as their English teacher Mr. Keating leaves the classroom.

What passed between Jeff and Ash is unrelated. What Ash did might have been impolite, and also unwise, but the punishment did not fit the crime.

And a community should stick together.

Here yours answers.

Ah. If I didn't know I wouldn't be able to get my name back, I'd probably change it to Ashmagus Micael in protest.

Well, that explains that. I haven't seen anything like this since Imbanmania.

Who would steal your name? I don't know that too many people would want to be confused with you.

One of the reasons I was Lady Davida for a while was because I couldn't change back to Sir David. It's a common problem on the boards, though nobody knows why it is. It's safe to say, though, that if he changes his name, he may not get it back for a while, if at all.

Does "for a while" translate to "quite a bit more a year"? :P

Also, I experimented with this a while back (a bit after PPP3, I think, so it would have been in January) after I noticed several PDNs were duplicates.

What I found is that

1. You can't set your login name to someone else's login name (when registering).

2. You can't set your displayed name to someone else's login name.

(3?) You can't set your login name to someone else's displayed name (when registering) - I didn't try this, but it wouldn't make sense otherwise.

4. You can set your displayed name to someone else's displayed name.

I could be Lady Davida, or Pokemon, or Kapfen. I couldn't be Sir David, Commander Edward or Alorael.

--

Add to that the flat file horror I just found out about, and you probably have utter chaos. David, if you registered the login name "Sir David" and now can't use it as a displayed name, then I have no idea what happened.

That used to always happen to me (I was very mad to learn I couldn't use Millicent, Dear Millicent after I changed it). But now it doesn't do it at all; I've changed my PDN to and from the same names and back thrice. I used to not be able to do that, but meh.

Yes. In fact, reading the topics that have already been posted is highly encouraged, arghhhhhhhhh.

I also get the impression that you don't come back to look at topics later, so I bet you'll never read this post. Please prove me wrong, arghhhhhhhhh.

Contrary to some people, I can have my name set as my login name (Spring, naturally), but not as a variation that I have already used.
