Happy New Year (and small news update)

2012-12-27 22:53:35 by BlazingDragon

Well, my computer all but stopped working and I had to wipe the hard drive and install a new operating system. Thankfully, much of my work was backed up, but it will take a while to reinstall all my software and be uploading music again.

That aside, this has been an awesome year on Newgrounds! I took 3rd place in the Newgrounds Audio Deathmatch, released a significant amount of material, wrote music for some great projects, and gained a ton of new followers. Thank you all for the support, and I can't wait to see what 2013 will bring.

Happy New Year! :D

Well, I wanted something original instead of something that sounds noobish and childish (especially with numbers on the end). The mass majority of my friends approve of my name change.

BlazingDragon responds:

I've wanted to change my name for years. BlazingDragon was a name I made at age 11, and it seems unprofessional to me. But I've built such a foundation on it that I'm hesitant to change now.

Did you have to PM a mod to change it?

This new year is gonna be some surprise for many on here. Let's see what happens, good friend.

(Updated ) BlazingDragon responds:

Hopefully they are pleasant surprises. Best to you in the coming year. :)

I think BlazingDragon's a cool name (in my opinion). But if you want to change it to something pro you can send a PM to an admin (I recommend Tom or Wade) and request a name change (be detailed). The chances of changing your name are high since you have quite some exposure and 700+ fans, besides you earned 3rd Place in the NGADM. It could take a few days, though.

BlazingDragon responds:

Thanks for the tip. I wasn't sure how to go about that.

BlazingDragon isn't a bad name, but it's kind of weird outside of the internet. I'll meet people and they'll ask where they can hear my music. I feel a little awkward when I say, "Yes, go to 'Blazing Dragon dot newgrounds dot com'." Especially if the person I'm talking to is one of my professors or something, lol.

I guess what I really need is not to change my name but to get a professional looking website of my own to direct people to!

we've all been there, well done for backing up :P I never would of thought ahead like that

deadmau5 was a forum username and it just stuck - but if you really dislike it it's alot easier now, what you thinking of being called anyways? Blaze? or summit completely different

happy new year from me :D
(loving the new music)

BlazingDragon responds:

Well, I only backed up because I've gone through the pain of losing everything once before. That was devastating!

I didn't know that about deadmau5. That's an interesting piece of information. I'll probably end up keeping my user name here, as I'm not sure what I'd change it to.

Thanks! :D
