It's me, Xaqtly. I've long thought that Xaqtly was s stupid name for an online persona, or a fursona. It's still my name - I own the domain, and it's the entity under which I create my music and write - but it's not ME.

I am Kantaro, and I always have been. I created Kantaro as an ideal version of me, a Blue Arctic Fox with all of my good qualities but none of my bad ones. The avatar I use on all furry sites including this one and FA is a picture of Kantaro.

My mistake was jumping into the furry world years ago while still using the Xaqtly name to represent myself. Xaqtly is just a domain, a company, an organization. Kantaro is who I am. So I am beginning the long process of converting my online identity in the furry world from Xaqtly to Kantaro, starting here where it all began, on Planetfurry.

I spent a week at Further Confusion under the name Kantaro, and it was blindingly obvious to me that I should have done it this way from the beginning.

Xaqtly is a stupid name. Kantaro is awesome. Very Happy

I like the sound of it. Just rolls off the tongue much easier. Not to mention much easier to pronounce. anyway... *offers some strawberry topped cheesecake*

So, Kantaro, any reason why you created a new user, instead of asking an Admin to rename your old one?

starting over with a clean slate?
