Forum Feedback Frequently Asked Questions
Our Name Change Policy:
As a result of an increased volume in name change requests and the inherent confusion caused by name changes, we're going to be putting some restrictions on name change requests from now on.
Name changes are fine (as long as they aren't too frequent) up until you reach the 1,000 post mark. At that point, you have likely become fairly well known in the forums you regularly participate in, and requests will then be considered on a case by case basis.
ie: We can understand that a name like 'MasterBaiter" might have been funny at one time, but may no longer be how you want to be seen on the forum. However, if you're a regular poster, going from "Chasing Amy" to "Run Lola Run" won't be an option anymore. So it's not a complete end to changes, but because of the confusion these things cause, you'll need to give us a good reason before we make a change from now on.
Changes that are mostly cosmetic (case, spacing) will still be allowed
Also, any major name change will now require that you put "formerly known as [old name]" in your Location field for two weeks.
I realize that this might be a little upsetting to some, but please try to understand that with as many active members as we have, it's already hard enough to keep track of who said what in the past. Throwing name changes into the mix just makes it next to impossible.
To actually get your name changed, you need to email an Administrator. Any Administrator is fine. (Please note that I, Blade, am now a retired Admin.)
