New Gamertag Request

Post by S7 Prodigy on Mon Nov 21, 2011 6:33 pm

I know I have only been in the clan a few days, but I love what I've experienced so far and I would to show gratitude and intrest in making this a long term commitment by changing my gamertag. Im not sure on the policies since im still only a private and in the probation period, so if someone could give me some insight I would appreciate it. I would like to change my tag to S7 ProDiiGy.

I'd lose the 1337 spelling. If you're in this clan you'll definitely not regret it in the long run.

1337 Speak is like an unofficial gaming language. Originally it'd just be replacing letters with numbers/symbols and since then it has also evolved to include the capitalization of random letters.

Some people see it as annoying or douchey, like the retards on facebook that purposely spell things incorrectly or use love hearts instead of full stops.

Personally, though I'd imagine it's a fairly well accepted opinion think that it is tolerable to an extent, i.e. a few characters.


Here are some variations of it using my GT -

|| EpiC ||
3PIC
S7xEpiCx
etc.


In real life I don't sign things as JaMeS JoHnSoN....not sober anyway, so why would I do so in a gamertag?

Anyway, long story short. S7 ProDiiGy isn't that bad but tbh, I don't see what is wrong with S7 Prodigy.

N.B -

A few times, in real life, I've met people and traded gamertags and I have been very thankful that I haven't had to explain such a gamertag whilst in the middle of a social group.

Here's what you could be avoiding -



blah, blah, blah, conversation about gaming, blah....


Bro: Oh, you play CoD too?

You: Yup.

Bro: Dude, what's your gamertag, we should play together some time.

You: S7 ProDiiGy.

Bro: Ok, so just S7, space, Prodigy.

You: Yeah, but the P, D & G are capitals. Oh, and there are two i's.

Bro: Ok...ummm, maybe you should just add me.

You: Yeah, that's probably easier. What's yours?

Bro: Bieberlicious

You: Actually, I have decided to sell my xbox, computer, cellphone and potential methods of communication between us. Goodbye.



See, how awkward would that be, right?!

Hmmm odd. We've previously had a "prodigy" but that's a different story altogether.

Besides, in order to use a 1337 name you have to earn it in the trenches of combat...hence my name is K1ll3rKlown but I get no slack for it because I'm cool like that + I'd just come to your house and roll you Rolling Eyes

He gets no stick for it because we feel sorry for him as he drives a Mustang. Apparently, he really wanted a Camaro...

I thought with that 50th anniversary mustang post that he wanted a matte orange charger? I guess I missed the idea behind that thread.

Just waiting for a Mustang chassis with the Prius engine and nightly plug-in capability to appease you tree huggers.

Hmmm, not sure how that works? Powered by man chowder instead of gas or electric? J/k

The loud growling and snorting from the exhaust is how you know the beast is alive under the hood. It also something exclusively manly about it. Kind of like the reason we go to movies with explosions...we like that kind of sh**, but if your engine is so silent you can hear a bird fart from 200 feet away you shouldn't be driving-- you may as welll walk (with your Coach purse high on your shoulder).

We have no rules about changing your name. That is strictly up to you sir...

Klown is correct. We have no rules about changing your GT. We do not require anyone to do it, even after probation. It is left up to the personal choice of the individual. If you are sure this is where you belong and plan to be here for a long time I say go for it. Most of our long term members have done it and it is always nice to roll in an all S7 lobby!

You won't need to be 200 yards away, I'll install a bird box on the car for you, help you save the environment even more. Maybe add a 10ft nose cone on too. I know you'll appreciate that 0.5 mpg, looking stupid is a small price to pay...

I'll let that slide Tico because life for you is hard enough.
It's easier to fly a helo than to back your camaro into a spot at Denny's. The visibility from the cockpit is horrible...and once you pull out of the spot @ Denny's the moped revving at the stop light can walk you Twisted Evil ...so I know you laugh to ignore the pain inside.
