Just in case anyone wonders... since the name Crusader is taken, as well as all the other cool Saxon names , I decided to take this strange nick because I'm from Croatia, and Crusader is one of my favourite Saxon songs, so it's just a stupid little word play: CROatia-CRuSADER.

I only joined the forum yesterday and I feel a right muppet now I've chosen 747rick. It wasn't very inventive was it. 30 lashes for me!

But I think you're the only one do own that name. Let's save the violence for a different situation!

Exclamation Boring techie comments...

Hi very simiar dudes :-)
As a coder, I can say it's actually very difficult to program some rules that will detect similar usernames:

It's relatively simple to detect IDENTICAL ones and reject if someone tries to use an existing one. However, there are two main reasons why looking for SIMILAR ones is difficult:

1: The programmer must implement some logic - that must be decided on in the first place - that 'knows' how to decide when words are similar enough that they should be considered the same. Upper/Lower case, zero and 'oh', space/non-space, phonemes (sorry...), I/1,g/9 etc - there are actually likely to be hundreds if not thousands of combinations. Because of this fairly arbitrary complexity, doing this is programmatically quite complex, and will take up a lot of processor cycles compared to the simple equality comparison.

2: The rules for deciding on whether similar usernames should be considered identical need to be decided. This will involve LOTS of discussion and argument (trust me I do this for a living...) and will probably take longer to do than actually programming it...

The trick is to have a name that no-one else has ;-)

End of boring crap.
