The Name Change Thread

35 posts in this topic

I figure with longtime communities, there are bound to be name changes that are desired. Heck, on FAF I got tired of "Leybun" within 2 months. Name change threads are a forum staple with ever changing identities and communities.

A note about special characters - special characters in usernames such as ~!*&%$#@^ will not be approved for name change. It creates issues with the site function. Sorry! 

Admins (Such as Zeke and Ariel) can change your name. It'll be fairly simple.

  1. No requests for name changes more than 1 time every 6 months
  2. Name change requests are only to be done in this thread
  3. One post per person for the change.

I'd like a name change to `fennecbyte`, please.
Yes, I know it's a horrible username, but it's my horrible username.

I'd like mine to be changed to Data. I'm contemplating still sticking around after my break.

I do have a suggestion. I don't need ly name changed but i get confused by people who do. Could it be possible, maybe in this thread, that instead of just "done" you could type somethi5along the lines of "<old name> you are now <new name>"

This is going to be kinda bad if you want to change your name for search result purposes.

Unless the person requested asks to avoid confusion, I would (personally) for the sake if someone wants to avoid the search engine or privacy.

Is there a way a search engine could pick up say, a picture of the old name?
That may be a happy medium.

Better idea: How about we make this thread only visible to registered members?

This thread is for people who want a name change. Staff needs to keep track of this list, so we can deal with it as quickly and effectively as possible.

If you want to argue about whether or not name changes should even be allowed, make a new topic for it. Don't clutter up this one with that debate.
