View Full Version : username choices- companies

so i've noticed that there's a little bit of a confusing thing going on:
for a while, i thought whoever "rundropslide" is was actually steve pulera, the guy who owns and runs Run Drop Slide... turns out it isn't
i also thought "gulfster" was someone from the website www.gulfster.com, but alas it isn't.
and it's not like i'm some noob... i spend way too much time on here, and i still wasn't sure. i think there should be some rules about what usernames you can pick to avoid being misleading about a brand's image.

Gulfster isn't the guy who owns gulfster? Damn, thought it was too.. Haha. There is also some one named Zap Skimboards.
EDIT: Nvm, there are 2, this is the real gulfster guy: http://18.104.22.168/forum/member.php?u=2281

I wonder what would happen if someone came on here with the name "ExileSkimboards"?
04-09-2008, 09:21 PM
i don't even ride a vic :eek:
i think people should change their names but still keep there rep power and posts. and let the companies have their names... just an opinion..
i agree.....Aaron Peluso may i change my name to exileskimboardsowner
and Aaron when r u gonna delete my old account?

I could see changing the username to be helpful....or use the tags under the username to say something like "pro skimboarder"....for example...RDS's is "industry dude." if would have to be made standard though so its not confusing.
GulfsterRyan is the true gulfster. The other guy throws me off everytime i see his name though.
RDS is the real steve i think, and rundropslide is some kid who likes to run drop and slide.

I think the only thing plausible is to have a user title for industry people. That is AP's call though.
yes i think people forgot to put pro skimboarder under my name but its ok you can change it now

off question. Isn't Chia part owner of Exile? Is he on the boards?
04-11-2008, 09:49 PM
pretty sure he is.
04-12-2008, 06:42 AM
Not on the MBs(posting anyways) I don't think. Unless he has hidden his identity extremely well.
