The vacations are upon us, ushering within the time of yr we bug our family and friends for presents — however why not bug tech firms as properly?

Should you’ve ever used Reddit, it is best to be part of me and demand customized usernames for Christmas. However why, you ask? The reply is easy: disgrace, creativity, and the multiplicity of man.

Shameful secrets and techniques

I’m late to the sport on the subject of Reddit, however whilst an outsider I do know it’s meant to be the web site. It’s received all the data you might dream of — like how much money Owen Wilson has made per ‘wow’ — and after 14 years of existence, it nonetheless has the gorgeous old-school web vibe to it. It preserves the texture of the web when on-line communities have been for folks into the identical area of interest stuff — and never poisonous by default, which is greater than the remainder of the net can say.

However I’ve lastly seen the sunshine and turn out to be a civilized netizen! What finally received me on Reddit was a brand new pastime I began not too long ago, and its subreddit has all the information and connection to the neighborhood I would like. There’s only one drawback — I’m ashamed of my pastime.

Uhm… however Reddit is nameless 

It’s true that Reddit is nameless, however being the noob that I’m, I kinda selected a username that’s fairly simply linked to me once I first joined (and no, it’s not ‘superhotstud3000’ however thanks for asking). 

I did it as a result of I had envisioned my Reddit-usage being pushed by participating in deep discussions throughout a plethora of subreddits — akin to r/books and r/tech — dazzling folks with my wit and including anecdotes to my articles my followers would share. And naturally I’d wanna have the ability to declare that fame by an simply identifiable username.

However that didn’t actually occur.
