Hehe, besides me, Elly and eternal11, no other members I'm aware of have their nick in katakana. I just thought of this while I saw the current online members showing the three of us.

AFAIK I was the first one who had my nick in katakana so, Elly and eternal11 pay me some money ;)

Eh, I'm not fond of the nicks, sigs, and other stuff in non-English alphabets. Sure, I can read it... at least the Japanese and Korean (although I don't think there's any Korean on these boards that I've noticed), but alot of people can't, which isn't cool. Plus, because it uses a non-Western character set, some people may not even be able to display it properly in the first place.

My opinion is the same as Rhombus' (though, unlike him, I cannot read these languages :p )

I feel quite frustrated by members with japanese nicks, specially Elly - it makes it so hard to quote him :p

yes, but I could randomly type some characters as a nick; but then even myself wouldn't know what it says. kinda dangerous.
I'm just assuming the people using it know what and will keep it within forum rules ;)

I don't have a clue about jap chars... therefore I don't like them (they look fancy tho)...

Well, we like jpop (most of us) and we don't have a clue about what they are singing... for all we know they could be singing about world domination with flowers and hugs!!

Hence the "(most of us)", go to the IRC channel... rarely you see a "now playing" which isn't a Japanese song... ;)
Except for myself and N1ghtw0lf ;)

Well you rarely are around... as for N1ghtw0lf, lately he keeps his anime-dislike to himself so he doesn't count ;)

That's not even the beginning of the story... you should see the (unlicensed) anime they download... oh and their talks about it... that is what you would call weird ;)
