I suppose someone's going to have to change "Greg's" account name. This was definitely some exciting news to wake up to, and I look forward to seeing where Mae's life goes from here.

I've been looking forward to this for a year and a half and I'm so glad it's finally time.

Obviously I need to step outside my own little bubble from time to time, I had no idea.

I suppose at the time, way back in the day, when Rule 63 Greg kept coming up in the comic I figured "Of course guys just write about their girl selves. Everyone *I* know does it. Perfectly normal."

Turns out no, it's not as common as I thought, but at least I have a good support network of people who've gone through the same thing.

I've met the Deans, and had my reputation here.
When I joined the newly created Discord server I got an unexpected DM. :P
Only reason I knew so long ago. Although if you happened to somehow stumble across the twitter account before now the signs were there.

Mae is an admin. When she's ready, she has the ability to make the change her name and title herself. I don't want to push on that, especially since she has stated that she has a master plan for changes to public symbols.
If I show up at your door, chances are you did something to bring me there.

That's cool. I'm still coming to terms with changing my pronouns over here, and probably will be for a while.

Hey hey, used to come around here a long time ago. No desire to unearth that old account and like twenty year old posts, but couldn't not stop by to say AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA and I hope everything is going *fantastic*

Somehow I remember when you joined, BtEO. And I’ll forever think your name is Bob. Because I think we speculated it stood for Bob the Edible Ochre. But who’s idea that was is lost to me... And I’m not sure if I want to know if the mystery was ever solved.
My sig would have contained the secret of life, but I'd already clicked submit.

Two legitimate new accounts in the same day?

Mae is causing a stampede!

BtEO was trans before it was cool, Mae and Spanks are just riding the band wagon.

Ah but I merely dabble compared to them.

I never did reveal the true origins of my name, even at that point I considered there to be a degree of separation between the nick and its source. These days I use BtEtta pretty much exclusively, in part because it's definitively not an initialism whose first word is Bob (Robin really is a better fit for me), also bots often snap up all shorter names early on with any new service.
