Its easier to stick with one handle. Of course after about the 8th round few people care what names are being used.

Well, I used Grey Wolf from the start on local BBSes. Once I hit the internet, it became increasingly difficult to find places where at least one schmoe hadn't already taken the name before me. By the time FPSes came around, it was all but impossible. But Desert Wolf proved quite free, so I went with it, given that was where I then lived. :)

I was quite surprised to find a number of Freakdogs in places that I'd not have expected, after I'd been using it for 10+ years.

The internet is a vast place indeed. Any place where your name has to be unique that has any reasonable chance of being well-used is a place you can almost assume someone had your name before you.
I've used Desert Wolf for all my online gaming, as I said. Part of that has been the Battlefield series. BF:1942, then BF:Vietnam. I'm known, I'm in a clan. But those games didn't have a central server and validate your name, so it was all fine. However, when BF2 came out, I sweated it since then there was only a centralized server. It peaked at over 1.1 _million_ accounts. So with that kind of population, yeah, it's hard to find a unique name.

I know I'm not the only Shadowhawk out there, so I don't use it except in places that I know people that previously knew me by that are.

A four year gap in posts in here?

Sorry, that was me ... I was doing some renovations and put a wall where there should have been a door.

Eh well, I don't visit often... and need that brick on a spacebar when I do.

Don't waste a perfectly good brick on a spacebar. You need that brick to hit people on the head with.
