That’s not what I’m saying, I’m saying like myspace.com you pick your sub site "myspace.com/webmasterluke," my username is not webmasterluke, its lupedog. After I had my name established I created a sub site and that sub site name is linked to my user ID and my user ID is linked to my username. So ultimately my page would not be, "24875.newgrounds.com" or "lupedog.newgrounds.com" but in fact "Timothylanestudios.newgrounds.com." Now on that note I am done arguing with DFox.
Just think about this, you could keep your username as Dfox but our personal sub site could be, "orangefoxgames.newgrounds.com"
Newgrounds is one of the largest sites on the internet, to think that they created a database with the PK set as a username and not an id is crazy. Of course that's the way it is, haven't you viewed our profile pages before?
Anyway what you're saying is certainly possible, but as James replied, is it really going to be worth the effort? You now have two names to associate with one id, when someone wants to change their name or sign up both names have to be checked to make they don't conflict with every one else's double names. And for what? so you can add 'lol' in your name for a couple weeks?
