I just went through an overhaul of my username and profile icon to be more up-to-date (or such). When I go to look at my profile, everything's changed just fine, but by my projects, it still shows the old name and icon from when they were made. Clicking on the projects shows the same username and icon as before I changed them.
Is the change in username and icon just a gradual one or is it supposed to change instantly for everywhere the pic and name are posted?

I don't post my business, though. Actually, I'm just as silent on the internet as I am in real life. And the only blog I do have is one for school, I also have one Youtube show, but I haven't done a lot of personal info sharing on it.
Pandora; I am able to report people who make me uncomfortable, but I'm not going to use it until I get really pissed off.
Lolly; It can be, but the thing is, I'm trying to get into cosplay (costume play, a kinda "anime otaku" thing), and so I'm trying to be more "out of my shell" both on here and in real life. Only problem is that I seem to attract the f'in weirdos and freaks on sites. (Except for here, or course.)
Kitty; It doesn't really bother me, it's just that the person trying to add me has a thick head and a bit of an issue..... and he's 24-25 years old. Let's just say I don't normally add guys that old, and he's making a big deal over it. *Note; We actually haven't been talking a whole lot, but every once in a while, he tries to add me, and I ignore it.*
Sheila; When I create account on other sites, I try to use as little info about me as possible, but as close enough info that it's not blatantly obvious that it's fake, so I wouldn't exactly know whether or not that my info's secure.
To Lolly; As long you're admitting that you're a bit loud, then that's okay; It's the people who say they AREN'T loud but REALLY ARE loud that piss me off. As for two-faced, I've got a perfect example; My best friend is going out with a senior in our high school, and his ex-girlfriend is in the grade above us (we're sophomores). Now the ex-gf is really nice to me, and is sort-of polite to my bff, but during P.E. one day, when I was listening to my iPod and it was changing songs, I heard the ex-gf talking about my bff and the ex-gf's ex-bf going out with my bff. About two days later, cuz I kept forgetting, I told my bff and her bf about it, under the oath that they wouldn't tell her about it, 'cuz I don't wanna lose my best friend during school hours. :( And the only time I hear the verbal abusing is when my mom gets mad at someone and they're at somewhere else. She'll be laughing one second, then we'll leave and she starts yelling. Sometimes it actually cracks me up when she does that, but this is serious business here.
To Heather; I heard ignorance is the new common sense. XD And where-ever I heard that from or who made it up has made my day.
@ All posters; Well, asking for ASL is pretty much getting in your business, but if it's unavoidable, then I give them another name I made up.
To Kitty; The only problem I have is that someone on another site keeps trying to be in my business, and he keeps trying to add me. Only problem is, I can't block him, and he's got more than one account on said site purely because of an incident caused by one of my friends that I now have to deal with. BUT ANYWAY, I don't ask personal questions either, unless the person I'm talking to lets me ask.
To Lolly; I've had someone do that, too. (Asking to meet me, I mean.) But I'm not letting this become obsessive. As a matter of fact, this is the least of my worries.
To Heather; I agree with that completely. (Even I'm not careful online sometimes.)
To Rachie; I do limit the people I talk to on Myspace and Cosspace, at least. Sites like Gaia Online and on here I'm open to make friends, granted those on Gaia aren't psychotic and freaky stalkers.
I love cosplay!! (That's pretty much how I found this site~! XD) I hope I'll be able to get my Princess Sakura cosplay done soon! I've also been trying to get my friends to cosplay, too, but they're not as excited about the idea. They will be soon~! :3
Several thing piss me off, but I'm just gonna name a few;
1. Opinion-Changers/Go-Backers/Mind-Changers; They say one thing, and then they do a completely different thing. Like one person said that he was gonna leave a website because this girl said something to him about his foul attitude, and then he found out he could make a new account using Facebook, so he stayed. This guy also changes his opinions and minds very frequently.
2. Loud-A** Mofos; These are the people that never shut up during class/movies/lectures, and they never turn the volume down when they do talk, so I can pinpoint their voice over the others' voices.
3. Two-Faced People; This is probably one-quarter to half of the nation here in this tidbit. They are nice to you about one thing, then turn around and b*tch and moan about you to their friends. They also yell at you about one thing then praise another person for doing pretty much THE SAME THING. Top example is when someone is really happy at one person and they're laughing and all that, then they turn around to you and start ATTACKING YOU VERBALLY.
4. Attention-Grabbers (like Violetta's 6:24 post); They want all the attention of a group, and if they don't get it, then wait for the fake-a** acting and water works.
Ever gone somewhere or joined a site where you want to make friends or just talk about things that aren't stressful/just wanting to "escape" from some drama? If no, then you are free to stay. If yes, continue. Now, on that site or in that place, ever met someone that started asking too many questions about your life about your family and what-not? Ever met that one person that was so nice, but was also a bit too "nosey"? I bet you have, and I bet you DID NOT LIKE IT. (If you did, that's okay.) Main question is; Has someone gotten all up in your "beeswaxx"?
EXAMPLE; Say you're on Blogger or Twitter or something, and you're posting about having bf-troubles or family-troubles. Out of all your friends' comments, you see one from someone you don't know. You reply back, no big deal. Then they reply back, and it's like they're about to tell you their life story or give you a survey. Then they start asking if they can help you, if they can talk to your family, or something else that completely throws you off your rocker. You politely say "No thank you." Now imagine this continuing on and on and ON AND ON AND ON with EVERY SINGLE PROBLEM, until you feel the need to (politely) say "It's okay. I can handle this myself." (Then we end up disproving ourselves and ask someone we know for help.)
BASICALLY, had you ever had that one stranger, someone you've never met before, get all up in your business? Discuss, ne?
