2 Why emsenn is Lowercase

2.1 "msenn"

When I was 12 I joined a server where everyone's name was their first initial and the first four letters of their last name. So my username was "msenn."

2.2 "emsenn"

After a while we migrated systems and the rule was relaxed, and many original members changed their names to be more phonetic - I added an e to the start of mine, to become "emsenn."

Because my name originated as a username, I always write it in lowercase: a nod to my "heritage."

(And yes, everyone calls me emsenn, even in real life.)
