Notice that the data showed that the number of people who register at all with a numbers name is vastly lower as well. So "the top 50 posters mostly don't have numbers" and "The last 50 MD thread creators mostly don't have numbers" isn't necessarily reflecting a retention difference because the users you're hoping to retain aren't distributed 50/50.

It's a hypothesis I'd also take but those seem like poor reasons.

"Well, I..."
"What? Nothing? You would make the prince suffer over... nothing?"

lmfao@ this thread. I rarely replace out and don’t fit any of the stereotypes that people have associated with numbers at the end of the username but this faulty analysis may be the result of ignoring creativity in employing a number at the end of one’s name.

I for instance, did it to both pay homage to the Hitchcock film. “The 39 Steps” and also because I incorrectly assumed that their was a Nancy Drew novel with “39” in it. it turns out that there is one with “99” in it though.

Thing with Nancy is we just need to tread carefully because if you slip up around her as scum she notices and will tear your spine out and slap you to death with it.

I think that anyone with a username along the lines of incorrigible lurksack as a 90% better chance than rand of flaking.

We should make a secret hydra with that name. I’m sure no one will ever figure it out.

my ctrl+F of MD isn't any stronger than yours, it was a thing. Also based only on newbie games. Don't think that thread's old enough to even be a proper necro yet.

I've never replaced out of a game, did you take that into account?

the fact someone investigated this is so delightful

numbers probably mean their preferred name was taken

in a game like mafia where you're constantly referred to by name it'd probably suck to constantly have notthenameyouwanted as your representation
