In deviantART usernames, do you like it when certain letters and numbers replace the normal letter? For example a capital i or 1 for an L, 0 for o, and 3 instead of E.

I think it's fine as long as it's not overdone. Two or three letters replaced is enough for me, any more and it just looks bad. Although being a tiny bit of a perfectionist when it comes to such things, I would never do that in my own username. I'd actually like to change the one I have now someday. :T

i really like capital i's that are used as l's, and (though you don't really see this one on deviantart that much) rn's used as m's. everything else feels kinda tacky

1337 or LEET is an interesting language and should be tread lightly upon. Unless you are playing Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

hahahahahaha *quietly pushes own username into the corner*

I'm kinda indifferent to it. I prefer to have just letters, but I mean there's some dumb username hogs that decide to take all these cool words and don't even use the site SOOOOOO

I'm okay with it, but sometimes it is confusing if I forget which letters are the different ones while looking for an artist

I think, if it's the only way to get a username you want, it's not too bad, although I always make sure to double check what sort of character they're using in the url first... I mean, mine is technically unlversal (because space/universe reasons) but hey. :dummy: 

Numbers... I've never been a fan of that, so much, so eh. Guess it's okay. 

I think it makes people a bit more imaginative, to have to work out ways of being able to get a certain name, etc, however I do regret my particular choice of username, now.
