Mine becomes twice as big and includes another.

Very likely to be a quickie

What "becomes twice as big"--is it tangible? a word or phrase? some other text?

Does it become twice as big because "another" is added to it? So that it is big enough to "include another" within it?

Does the word become twice as long? or does it become plural? or mean something twice as big as another word?

Anything to do with the fact that it appears twice in the sidebar?

I remember a long time ago there was a puzzle revolving around the differences between the user name and the real name, as once appeared in the side bar.

I remember a long time ago there was a puzzle revolving around the differences between the user name and the real name, as once appeared in the side bar. Is that one still in the archives? If so, I'd like to check that one out.

Is it a balindrome? Haha, no ;-)

Probably wrong, but...
when your name includes an "other" (another...), it becomes twice as big, as Balin and other both have 5 letters.
"Other Balin" would make your name become twice as big and include an "other".
Say no already. :D

To make it twice as long, are letters added at the beginning? in the middle? at the end? or is it a FA that letters are added to "Balin"?

Does the other user have a puzzle on the front page? Has the user posted in this puzzle? Does a strange phonetic spelling of "Balin" produce the desired result? Is "Balin" interspaced with another 5-letter username? Or part of a longer username? Or are letters of either username mixed or reversed?

Beighlynne?

Is the result pronounced the same as Balin but contains Lynne spelled out?

Beighlynne? Si!

Is the result pronounced the same as Balin but contains Lynne spelled out? Correct!

**********SPOILER**********

I was thinking about how long you can make words with the same phonetic pronunciation, like "fish" to "ghoti," or "sigh" to "scheye." I tried this with my username, and realized that it contained the username "Lynne," as in "Beigh-LYNNE," and knew right away that it'd be a good puzzle.

The title is a phonetic expansion of "word puzzle," which was pretty much figured out.

Nice job, everyone, most notably Whirligig for the solve.

The O in "women" is pronounced like a short I. The "ghoti" puzzle is a classic in itself.

Nice. There is a Plateau de Beille in the Pyrenees, which would take it up to eleven. And my parents live on Rue des Abeilles ... which would be twelve if you're prepared to be a bit liberal with phonetics ;)
