Name Removal

  1. Name Removal

    10-14-2020, 10:45 PM
    Hi,

    I have discontinued using Twin Galaxies for over a year and have no plans to ever return to using the site; however, my real name still comes up in Google when it is searched, something which I am not pleased by. Is there a way to remove my real name from this site, replace it with a generic name, or anything else that will disassociate TG from coming up when I'm googled?

    Thanks

    So I just found out about the outing of Todd Rogers and Billy Mitchell. It seems here guys are liars who continue to lie about their gaming abilities, especially Todd. I say the worst part is that whenever there's no footage of them playing a game, especially in Todd's case, but instead verified by referee, the source seems very unreliable. I say they should get rid of the stuff that's verified by referee and should have footage only. I know maybe back in the early 80s, it was acceptable, but we live in the 21st century and footage is pretty much the only proof we have.

    Hey, you should talk to Peter77! He basically had the exact same thoughts as you do! You can check out some of responses to Peter's question too

    Any thoughts?

    I'm not sure what that has to do with me (especially since my two entries were both video-verified), but Evener, since you're a senior member and all, do you know something I can do or who I should talk to about this?

    Sorry I think that other post may be spam so I got sidetracked.

    I would DM “admin staff” to see if there’s some sort of accommodation that may exist that I’m not aware of.

    I tried messaging Admin Staff, but it says they're not accepting DMs. Is there some other way I could get in contact with them?

    For a player to submit records and have them accepted their profile needs to have a real name. You can't change it now that those scores have been accepted.

    The only way to do that would be to delete your account. @SincerelyFranny can help you with that.

    Alright, that works, message sent.

    Why remove something good you have done? Believe me, I like my privacy, so I don't even use Facebook, Twitter or similar. I recently signed up to YouTube, as I wanted to upload some arcade related stuff that will be in the works.

    If you care about your name being visible all of the sudden, you can change the location you live in in your profile (you can even change the country). You will lose verified status, but you can always reverify later, if you decide to come back. There's gotta be more than one of your name out there, isn't it?

    Unfortunately, if there is, it doesn't come up anywhere near the top of my results. I've dropped out of gaming entirely, and...there were things I said while I was involved on various occasions which I no longer agree with and do not wish to be associated with (none of this occurred on TG). I guess that's the risk of posting **** on the internet as a minor. Beyond that, everyone knows me as a completely different person now; almost no one knows that I used to be involved in this scene, and if they searched up my username they would find a lot of things I've done in the scene related to things such as preservation.

    No one would ever connect the dots if my real name were no longer up here. I get where you're coming from in regards to not erasing accomplishments, but while I did have some of those on TG and elsewhere it's not something I wish to be known for in future points of my life. When I left, I tied up loose ends, set people up to continue without me, and vanished entirely. I've been meaning to get my TG account erased (or at least delete my real name from it) since I left in August 2019, and am finally getting around to it.

    Thanks for your concern, though.
