Mod Request: Name Change

Yes, I know these are only granted in special situations. Yes, I requested one a few years ago...but this is different.

Just completed an ugly divorce with a vile woman who basically slept around town with about 14,000 other guys. My username = her initials, mine, and our anniversary date. Would really rather not have myself defined by that set of facts anywhere in my life, much less on DVDTalk.

I'd like to change it to 'chibul', which is what I use pretty much everywhere else. I'm perfectly willing to have the whole "Artist Formerly Known as Abrg923" or whatever it is done.

Hoping you'll agree to my request. It honestly is a special set of circumstances. Thanks.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

I don't think that fits our criteria for a name change. The name you're requesting was already taken anyway.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

Is there any way I'd be permitted to create a new account, then, with a different name? I really don't want this handle...surely you can understand my reasoning for that. Essentially 13 years of bad memories are associated with it.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

Also, in looking at the fact that that username is taken...that's my profile. Let me explain.

If you look at my very first post, I mention in there that I couldn't find the "new topic" button. I don't know if I was just being dumb that day or if new topics couldn't be created by brand new members, so at some point a couple of months later (see my join date on my profile is October 2005) I created this account and used it from that point on.

If you look at this post under chibul's account, I mention being at this wrestling event for a specific incident - something I just referenced yesterday in this post as well.

So that's actually my old profile.

Not sure how that comes into play or if it affects things...I'm just asking that you consider this here. This is a username I really want to shed myself of, as it's regarding a period of my life that I need to put in my past and get behind me. I don't know what the "criteria" for name changes are, but I would hope that given my individual situation this could at least be discussed and considered, rather than just coldly shot down.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

Then it sure is unfortunate that you signed up multiple accounts which is contrary to our rules.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

...which I didn't know about at the time since I was brand new to the forum and confused...and it was six and a half years ago. You're going to punish me for that? You can clearly see I haven't been posting under two accounts all this time - it's not like I've been abusing the policy. I'd completely forgotten about that account until you mentioned it - I thought it was weird that someone else used that handle, so I looked and it turned out to be me.

Surely you can understand where I'm coming from here.

If the chibul account is yours, why not just start using that one?

As I acknowledged in my opening post. The reasoning has certainly changed, and that too was years ago.

I'm pretty sure if I try to do that, they'll suspend me for having multiple accounts.

Because both accounts will be shut down if he does that.

Just change your signature to: "My username is dedicated to InsertEx'sName and what we will forever share; yours initials + my initials + how many times I banged your sister.

PS: Have fun calling all the guys you slept with last year cuz your sister gave us herpes."

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

I vote just let him use the old one. Who cares?

It doesn't seem like that unusual of a tale. I did something similar at CAG. Signed up in '03 to check the place out and didn't stick around. Came back a few years later, oblivious to my previous visit and signed up and ended up sticking around. Realized a couple years later that I had two accounts. Brought it to the attention of mods and they let me keep the one I wanted and closed the other. They don't moderate the forums for shit, but they were pretty helpful for me.

Re: Mod Request: Name Change

Yeah, I really don't get this forum's big issue with name changes. Other forums let you do it pretty much at any point. I'm personally fine with what I have but I think it's sorta dumb you have to pretty much beg for someone to let you change a username. Plus the reasoning behind his seems pretty understandable.
