I've been on here a while, and well - let's just say I think I've grown out of the version of my YWS alias a little... I'm seventeen, so the "rulz" thing is a little behind me :P

Am I allowed to alter it?

Of course you are! :)

If you'd like to change your username, PM one of the admins (the guys with red usernames) and ask them to change it.

I think just 'Cotton' would be witty and clever, in a hipster sort of way. :p
I am nothing
but a mouthful of 'sorry's, half-hearted
apologies that roll of my tongue, smoothquick, like 'r's
or maybe like pocket candy
that's just a bit too sweet.

OK I've just come up with these possibilities: Cotton, as jasmine so wonderfully suggested, or how about, almost the same as it is now - TheCottonRule or just CottonRule ... the rule being, that... that... something :P

ooh ooh, or MsCotton, or Cotton'sParrot, like from Pirates of the Caribbean :D

oorrrr... CottonBMus, because BMus is hopefully *crosses fingers and squees* the music degree I'll get if I study music at uni... or HRHCotton - Her Royal Highness.. or even HMSCotton :P

and I just remember something I thought of last night: 100%Cotton... or does that look too messy?

One thing to keep in mind about special characters is they can make it difficult for the system— the final bugs to be cleared are usually associated with special symbols in usernames.
You know you're a writer when you're not alarmed at hearing voices in your head, you can't read a book without analyzing it for plot & characters and you consider something you nearly killed yourself to write the most rewarding.

Guilty as charged.

... is there a YWSer with a name anything to do with frogs? because I really love them - honestly, it's insane, actually; loads come to our pond to breed in the spring and there is this horrible, nasty cat that kills them and leaves them on the lawn, and I swear, if I ever caught it and had it in my hands, I would not be responsible for my actions - and something simple like "Frog" would be quite cool... any thoughts? you guys are all so nice, helping me out with my relatively unimportant dilemma xD

I am not sure if anybody has a name that has to do with frogs. The best thing to do is come up with a few possibilities in order that you want them, then go through the list if need be.
