    Rippon (who has been here for ages) and RIPP0N (new member).

    It's a tad confusing. Perhaps the new member should add a "2" or something to his UN.

    It sounds like some cleared cookies on his PC, got a new PC or is accessing from a new location. Then realized he forgot his password for this forum and was unable to retrieve it. Thus a new RiPpOn was born. :)

    Was I close?

    I do not believe so- the new one's posts are not the same.

    The new guy on the block should not have been allowed to have virtually the same handle. Mods need to intercede.

    Me too saturneptune. The RIPPON(the new) seems to be pleasant. The old Rippon needs a vacation. :laugh:

    I really do not understand as of yet what your level of authority on this board is, but suspect it is zero. This is the town I live in, the name I picked, and the name I intend to keep. My deepest apologies for any inconveniences.

    I doubt it will be an issue. Don't we have an old timer and an OldTimer and an old regular and an OldRegular?

    You have to admit, it could be confusing...
    So RIPPON - what was your reason?

    for example:

    Almost the same name?

    Not quite.

    They're the exact same name. One in is in all CAPS, the other not so much.

    An oversight by the admins perhaps. I'd say they'll fix the situation.

    As far as I am concerned we only have one Rippon here -- the only NIVO on the BB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The rights to his BB name and legacy should not be infringed upon!!!!! :thumbs: :laugh: :wavey:

    Perhaps out of kindness for us old folks who have trouble with remembering, the new rpon would be so kind as to add WV. That would honor not only the town but the fine folks who were not content to be average Virginians. :)

    "Take me home, country roads. To the place, I belong. West Virginia..."

    Are you saying that anyone with a username of Rippons must be a NIVO?:laugh:



    BTW, in Post # 14, I meant to put "For Example" just before the second quote

    Probably not all that sorry considering your tone in the above post. Nothing like the new guy/girl telling everyone how things are going to work.

    Sometimes this is more entertaining than Facebook. Okay, most of the time.
