Nicknaming contacts, that is. I nickname all my contacts since I just usually get annoyed by their display names and it makes them seem neater or something. XD;

A while back, I nicknamed almost all my contacts because I couldn't stand all of the useless stuff they put in their names.

It depends on the contact. If they consistently put unreadable stuff in their names, like Katakana/Hiragana/Kanji then yeah...I'll nickname them.

The same holds true if they change their MSN usernames often enough that I'm like "Who the hell are you?" when they IM me randomly. XD

So yeah. I will nickname people within MSN to keep track of who they are.

^ This

My friends are too crazy to have sensible names so I just add their name/nickname to make it seem neater and to find them easier

...I didn't even know you could nickname contacts. That'll be helpful, since my friend likes to Rickroll everyone with her display name.

Nah... My personal message is currently "insert emotional teenybopper song quotation here" and a friend, upon noticing it, began to explain that the fact people also put such quotes in their names is the reason he uses nicknames for his contacts.

So anyway, I don't do nicknames however, as I'm not really stuffed (and don't have the sort of personality that would lead me to consort with such persons often); and since sometimes people will talk about the formatting of their name or something, it's easier to see it and go along with the discussion than explain to them that I assign nicknames and for what reason I do so.

I nickname my contacts by their forum usernames. If they don't have one, I leave the display name be.

Naw, I like to see what names they come up with. I come up with crazy names, but that's me! So if they nickname me I'll be sad. :(

When people put random display names and I can't remember who they are just via their email I nickname them, but generally I don't =3

Yes I nickname them all. I get annoyed from the constant changes and it gets a little confusing after a while. So I just give them the name I most commonly know them for.

Only if I know who they are or if they change their name so much that it's just murder to figure out who they are. I give them the nickname of whatever it is I call them.

I don't nickname them because I remember who they are by their emails.

It's hilarious when you get a name similar to someone else (like I called myself "the doctor" at one point, when my friend always does) and people get confused.

"HEY, ALBERT!"

"I'm not Albert."

"Oh, screw you."

I just nickname them with their full name, it's just annoying having to read their whole nickname. I like the simple stuff.

I don't nickname contacts because then I miss out on their display names. :( It doesn't happen often anymore, but sometimes my friends or I will change our display names around as a joke related to the conversation. If they're nicknamed, the entire effect would be lost.

Some nicknames (like super, super long ones) really bother me but for the most part, I don't mind the display names my friends choose.

No I don't. I don't really care about what people name themselves. Never really paid attention anyway.

Yes, I nickname them. Just so I remember who they are. I only have like 6 contacts though. =D

I don't really chat with many people. Although there were a lot before, before I had an MSN. They disappeared or started ignoring me though. =(
