The What's Your eBay Handle Thread

    I got this idea after I posted some concerns regarding sniping fellow Forum members on eBay. Gorts gave me the green light to run the thread and get it pinned at least long enough to see if it get's off the ground (Thanks Dave and HZ!). It's just too cumbersome to click on member's profiles to see their handles.

    So post your handle here and you have less of a chance of getting sniped by one of us. No promises of course; sometimes you just gotta snipe.


    Mine's easy; same as on The Forum: teaser5

    Anyone else?

    Mine is ghtoz, which is the same as my Hotmail email address. I'm not hunting for too much at the moment, except for the following:
    • Foreigner - Atlantic Gold Series (I have the other 5 in this set)
    • MFSL Dave Grisman - "Hot Dawg" (the only one I need to complete my UDI set)
    • DCC Gold Sampler (I have all the other DCC Golds)
    • Moody Blues "Question" (the only MFSL Moodies I don't have)

    I actually don't buy much music on Ebay so you guys probably won't come upon my handle too often in your bidding endeavors, but since Norm asked so nicely... I'm known on Ebay as Alpha-7.

    And if anyone is wondering just what the heck an Alpha-7 is, it's this little guy circa 1969...

    Mine is Togodanderfluff...:)

    I don't buy items that often (about 25 times in 2 years so far!), but I'm always on the look-out for classic DCC, MFSL and other rare or OOP goodies.

    Mine's "rerunmedia"...


    (Which, by an incredible coincidence, is the same name used by a fine company which issues PD video material on DVD...!!) :D

    I'm Boshky. I've already gotten most of the DCCs and MFSLs I wanted, so I've cut down on the bidding. Now that I see Metralla's handle, I remember losing a lot of auctions to him and not even bothering when I saw him as the high bidder!

    stereoptic here, stereoptic there. But, don't expect to see me bidding on any $DCCs. :)

    Sorta similar to here: steve-ohstreak.

    The "streak" doesn't mean I like to streak (well, depending on circumstances, I guess I might), or that I can run really fast, it's just what eBay suggested as an add-on.

    Tony Caldwell Forum Resident

    elviszappa on ebay and most other places.

    I went with my actual name here because the whole alias thing seemed a little silly to me at the time.

    I did actually have a former co-worker send me a PM here. He said something like "are you the same Tony Caldwell from..." That was pretty cool.

    I use Mayberrydog When I joined eBay, I had not thought of a handle and chose her name at the last minute. Mayberry (her actual name) was taken, so I had to alter it somewhat. She is a wonderful, goofy, ten year old golden retriever. I don't know what I would do without her!
