Default Change Name

I want to change my name! Messaged several mods/admins a week ago. Weird how NONE of them responded at all.

I'd change my name but my award is engraved with it.

Whoa, changing names is forbidden. If you change your name, you will be registered.

We are currently doing an extensive research about this....some people abused the process and proper records were not always kept.

There will be some strict rules when this is reinstated in full....I am currently allowing a poster or two to change their names after I look into their history.

ah, I see. thank you for letting me know. I wasn't sure I would get a response.

I've never had a name change though, either. I did have an infraction once though. And I was thinking of getting one once you guys have sorted out your rules on it.

One forum I frequent requires user to post their former username in their signature for a length of time, 6 months I believe. They also have a thread dedicated to change requests so there is always an easily accessible record.

I think a thread of confirmed named changes would be a good idea for record keeping.

We did (jokingly) have a registration thread in 2007 when the higher ups allowed name changes and a bunch of posters came out in droves to change their names. I remember things being mildly chaotic.

I can't imagine why that many people would want a name change. I just made my as is coz I was impulsively obsessed with bane and dkr back in the day.

The one I mentioned was just a request thread. People would post the new name they wanted and the mods would change them at their leisure, usually once 5-10 requests had been made so they didn't build up to unmanageable levels. This was all with the understanding that the change might not take place for a week or two or even longer.

That wasn't even a quarter of the people who legitimately changed their name.

that's kinda nuts. but if put the staff thru hell, I wouldn't blame them if they don't feel like keeping it going. it'd be nice if they did though.

Think about how many people would PM them if they opened the floodgates.

Default Re: Change Name

Around five years or more ago we set up a thread for changing names....and after many people tried changing their name at least once a week it was stopped. I have found people who have had a dozen name changes with only two or three being officially noted.

The rules for changing names -

(1) C. Lee will make the changes, contact me
(2) You get one change....that is all.
(3) Asking for, does not guarantee getting
(4) The name must be non offensive
