Handles should be relatively short, if possible, since they
will at some point be used in an introduction. For example, "Hello, I'm
Computer Cowboy..." works fine, but "Hi, I'm Old man lying by the side of
the road with the lories rolling by..." is a hassle, no?
If you're picking a handle, be sure it isn't already taken!
View the Handle
List, and search it for the one you want.
Watch out for slightly different spellings!
If the handle you would like is already taken, but the last update of
the registry entry was long ago, you could try contacting the person to
see if they mind relinquishing it. Use the Registry's Email links.
The Lyrics Search function
within It's All One Song may be of
some help in finding a cool handle. Also check the full song title list and
album title list there.
Handles within the Registry
Handles starting with "The" or
"A" are automatically sorted
to display in the list as is, PLUS also where it would go without
the prefix. (Example: "The Loner" is both
in the ~T~ and the
Prefix special-chars (ex:~The Ocean~) are ignored
When adding a handle to your Registry entry that has a number
at the beginning (or after "The" or
"A"), it must be entered in the handle field followed
by a semicolon (";") and the spelled-out version.
If you fail to do this, the handle will not appear correctly in the list.
