And let's say I've tired of my username entirely. Must my new username still resemble my old one?

@ ThisIsTheUltimate: You could easily have your name changed to just "TheUltimate" and I'm sure there would be any backlash. Also, what you used really isn't an example of what I said. I said I don't see how changing your name would cause backlash, where you said not changing your name is causing backlash.
Since you might not understand why this is:
If you drastically change your name, people are going to have no idea who the heck you are and it will irritate them. Hell I can't remember who certain people are after they vanish for a week and they still have the same username. Drastic name changes tick me off because if I don't memorize who it is someone's going to be like "Hey stupid, this is *user*"
How they heck am I supposed to know that? They went from "DragonsFTW" to "I like Pie"!
Also I'm not entirely sure why you seem to think changing your name is going to do anything. Everyone already knows you as Titu. So they'll continue calling you Titu. Just like Red continued to be called Red Chao and people still call Techno 'Pika' or something sometimes. And like how Riku is going to be called Riku by me for all eternity because I mix users up enough as it is I don't need new names making it harder on me. I'm still going to call you Titu.
As for alts:
It's hard enough for me to know one person's screenname if they go and change it. Throw in alt masks and I have no clue who anyone is anymore. And I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in that regard. Especially new users. Alt accounts are pointless. All I can imagine them being used for is swaying poll results and using them to troll others by hiding under another name since Mods are the only ones who can see who's IP is behind the mask. Every other forum I go to bans people for using alt accounts. You all should be lucky you get to have any period.
