    Name in use?

    Hello,
    I always call myself Big_Boss_Man. (It's a song, yeah) So I would like to register as Big_Boss_Man but that name is already taken. So I call myself BBM. (you know) And I go to members and search, but I find nobody called Big_Boss_Man...
    What's going on?
    Greetz, Big_Boss_Man
    Excuse me for my question.
    BBM stands for Big_Boss_Man

    That sucks. I got Big_Boss_Man from a song called Big Boss Man. (sang by Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis) Isn't that harmless?

    Yeah, not together. But they both sang it and I got it on CD.

    BTW: I found some called: BigBossMan Then why may I not call me Big_Boss_Man??

    I searched for user with the word 'boss' in their name. There are about 140...

    You think he would do that? I mean, this forum is having over 400000 members and if every one come with question if he could change the name, he would be busy for hours!
