Do only Charter Members get Halloween names?

Question in subject. I can’t be Abominable Barbarian for the duration?

What’s a Halloween name?

Never mind. I must be leaking braaaaainnnns…

I got one last year, and I don’t think I was even a member then.

Ooh. Sounds tasty!

I don’t know how much clearer we can be about this.

There are none of these so-called “Halloween names”.
A pack of mutant hamsters did not escape from SDMB Server Central.
There is not a zombie outbreak which is currently threatening to infect the majority of users on this board.

Or the majority of threads? :wink:

I’m going to be a party-pooper. I really don’t like this changing usernames thing. If it could be confined to the Halloween forum, that would be one thing, but it’s playing hell with my sense of whose post I’m reading.

What if you get to post as “Frankenfurter”?


One of us, one of us, gooble gobble, one of us!

It’s cute when SDMB posters act like they’re real.

If there were some sort of mechanism to change your user name for a few days and if these were the days leading up to Samhain, then I might consider Goblin-Dathar.
But since no such mechanism exists, this is merely hypothetical and really not even worthy of posting.

But, are you…sure? Really sure?

I think my life would be a shambles if my name was changed.

That’s from that kid’s show right?

Oh come on, you could be punner rat.

Runner… shambler…shambles…

I feel it would be sinister if anyone were to change my name.

Boo!nilou would be just a weak, weak pun.
