MSN Screen Names


Recognisable Name: 8 (Thank you!)
Cryptic Name: 4 (Better than nothing)
Without Name: 6 (WHY?!!!)

The worst one, who prompted me to write this, is Jonny Rose, who has two messages in his screen name and another two in his personal message* so together they even fill up the tooltip and push the email address off the end! It takes at least two clicks to find out who he is!** (He says he doesn't care.)

* MSN 7 feature, for those who haven't upgraded yet
** (1 when he's offline)

  7. We're not saying they can't, but it would be nice to have their name or nickname as well so we know who they are without having to search. Particularly as many people have really random email addresses as well as screen names.

  10. Why should I know them? That's why address books are so popular. Plus half the people on my contact list were (before I decided to delete them) not friends just people I talked to sometimes. It's possible (and very easy) to put your name or nickname in as well as a message or whatever. MSN 7 even has a personal message box, and I don't really mind which of the two the message and the name are in – one of my friends put his name in the personal message box instead.

    It's not much use knowing what kinda mood they're in if I don't know who they are. Before I deleted most contacts I had a lot of them, so it's annoying having to remember who has each of the screen names or keep checking their email address.

  13. Now that I can agree with because you have a nickname at the start that immediately identifies you to anyone who has you on your contact list. :-)

  15. The point is it annoys me and I was just venting my frustration on my blog instead of at people.

    I'm not telling anyone what they can and can't do, just stating my opinion.

    Anyway I'm bored of this now – Public Commenting Closed
