Top 10 Signs You Have a Bad Username

The Top Ten

1 It’s based on something you used to like but you don’t anymore

I still like Three Days Grace and I’m going to see them next week with Breaking Benjamin. - 3DG20

I still like the Shadical Diss Track! - sadical

For me, kinda, I'm just not as in to HBK anymore. Its not about HBK anymore really, its just to keep me from calling myself just "Eli" - EliHbk

Many famous users even admit to this. - htoutlaws2012

2 It’s a babyish username from when you were little

Xxbonbonbooxx. Weird... - sadical

Maybe it was your love for that, but then as time goes by do you still find it that appealing? - htoutlaws2012

Awesomedp900. Weird... - awesomedp900

666Lucifer666. Weird... - EliHbk

3 It was taken so you replaced one letter with another

It wasn’t. I just couldn’t think of anything creative, so I just went with 3DG20 since I love Three Days Grace. - 3DG20

This goes two ways impersonation of someone famous, or you like the username, and even they aren't that poorly received as one would suggest. - htoutlaws2012

Mine is actually not taken. It was INTENTIONAL ohohoho. Actually it's themed after how several nu metal bands did their misspellings. - NuMetalManiak

Htoutiaws2012! Hooray! - TheFourthWorld

4 It’s just one punctuation mark

"! " is probably the worst username ever. - TheFourthWorld

That’s really sad

What if your username was “.” and someone commented on a list of worst people “I hate this person.” and the user called “.” thought that the comment was directed towards them.

5 It’s just random letters

The letters in my name stand for something though. - 3DG20

Dgfgfhtdsdxz is amazing. - Pokemonfan10

1010191082092890... what is that skynet A.I trying to be an ad or something what? - htoutlaws2012

Imagine if your username was rhijdefhmjtswsguu

6 It alternates capital and lowercase

SaDiCaL... that looks weird. - sadical

THeBeStUsErNaMe

unlike mine - Pokemonfan10

Mine obviously doesn’t, but I don’t see anything wrong with that. - 3DG20

That or someone intentionally tries to incorrectly type in your username in this style. - htoutlaws2012

7 It doesn’t describe you

So does the username IceBearRules describe me then? I do like Ice Bear after all... - IceBearRules

It doesn’t really describe me, except for the fact that I am a huge Three Days Grace fan, but I didn’t know the username needed to describe you to be good. - 3DG20

Well I have a bad username then...

I don't think my username describes me. - sadical

8 You have numbers in place of letters in your username thinking that it would be cool

I don’t, but I don’t see anything wrong with this. - 3DG20

Ahhh, Man this is with my username but just 1 word - B1ueNew

54d1c41. That doesn't look like it says anything! - sadical

Mar10N1nja101, I think this is how mine would look. It looks dumb

9 It has words to a lullaby

You don't need to fill in all 20+ empty spaces into a jumble of mess. - htoutlaws2012

10 Your username is the same as your password

You are asking for some serious intent to be lazy in security preference. - htoutlaws2012

There's a 99.99% chance your account will get hacked. - TheFourthWorld

Mine is - EliHbk

yep. - awesomedp900

The Contenders

11 Your username was inspired by this list

You know your username is bad if you got the idea from a list called Top 10 Signs You Have a Bad Username.

Yea this would be a very idiotic move.

12 Your username is your school ID number

Its okay to put on numbers on the username, but not entirely of numbers even of a local school ID might not be the greatest idea. - htoutlaws2012

775629 wow such a horrible username - thunderclanrocks

Lemme guess, 445956 added this, Right? - SpectralOwl

13 Nobody seems to be able to spell it correctly

So? That doesn’t mean the username is bad. It just means some people don’t know how to spell. - 3DG20

Some people spell my username wrong... - TheFourthWorld

Literally nobody can spell mine right

I don't think my username is hard to spell. I mean, come on, it’s 7 letters! - sadical

14 You have rather too many names in one username, even using stuff like "VGCP"

No. Using “VGCP” in your username is a Vyond fandom’s thing. - JoeBoi

15 Your username is your own name

What if a male toptenner real name was Caillur

Hey guys ever since birth MarioNinja is my real name. Sounds cool right? /sarcasm

My names not thunderclan rocks - thunderclanrocks

There is never enough room for me to write my name on tests because it’s 16 letters.

16 It has your name in it

My name isn't sad or ical, so that’s good then. - sadical

My username has my real name in half Instead of Sidis obviously which Htoutlaws2012 accurately said my reason of creating my username and I'm glad he's a "dwelling being" of me.Mostly Jada has insert her own name(Who can't really spell and shoves her opinions down someone's throat and not leaving me alone because she doesn't know any better)- Kevinsidis

17 If your name is inappropriate
18 You have an edgy MySpace-esque name
19 It has more numbers than letters

So? - 3DG20

20 Many people use it

Like mine ;-;

On musicly there about 50 warrior cat usernames I'm one of them :( - thunderclanrocks
