I've just googled...

My forum user name, looks like no one else is using it as 2 pages of links are all me - and they're not just from this forum  Cheesy
I was pretty amazed at that.

Re: I've just googled...

I noticed that, but wondered if it was because we were logged in?
EDIT:
Just did it on my work connection and it's still visible though certain fields are labelled as 'hidden'

At least you're not on the first page, artmo is about 5th on the google results that I get.

Just logged out then googled and the profile is still there.  
Isn't  'hidden' the fields you decided to hide when you first set up your profile for PN?

Re: I've just googled...

I gave up on page 15, nothing interesting, just lots of stuff about boats  Wink
I got a bit excited, when I saw a link to "John Hull's website", but it didn't look anything like me, clearly just somebody using my name.

Re: I've just googled...

I'm a bit disappointed I don't dominate the first page of results. At least I'm No.1 though!  Cheesy

Re: I've just googled...

There seem to be one or two other people called 'Thomas Kuglin' on the internet, but I don't think there's anyone else who uses 'Be3G' - partly hence why I like using it.

Re: I've just googled...

Well, that is interesting, mine is first in the list, followed a couple down by a Petlew Ltd, some sort of commercial cleaning company in NW London (no known connection to me) Uhmm, should I register (can that be done?) my username, and then sue them for using my name, then come to an out of court settlement!!...before they do it to me?
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
