    Read the rules about changing your username (go to settings --> change name and read the rules).
    You have to PM a Supervisor (the ones with the purple names).

    Admins...
    They can but they don't do it anymore, Costello made a thread about it a while ago. I think he even has that written in his sig.

    OP should contact the supervisors instead.

    Of course, but you must be prepared to make an offering of one plump goat.

    Go on, they don't like to be kept waiting.

    Hi, I'm a supervisor. I will change your name if you have made a typo or a grievous error as in using the name therapist and realizing people think you are a rapist. Apart from that, it's pretty rare that I'll even consider it. You can try, and you may catch me on a good day, or tripping on mushrooms, and get lucky, but don't get your hopes up. I won't in any circumstance grant you the name of an existing user, regardless of their inactivity. There is an option in your control panel detailing the process of getting your name changed by a supervisor, you can largely ignore that. I don't know where it came from but I know where it's going.

    Thanks for your understanding!

    We can unban Valwin but we can't change someone's name.

    WHERE DOES IT END?

    EDIT: Alternatively you can just get a 100% warn on this account and come back under an alt account with the new name. We allow that here.

    That would imply that I'm rich and powerful but I'm very obviously neither.
