    Hello, I have been part of GBATemp since late '09 really and I never bothered myself to be fully into it until past few months and I must say I am not comfortable with the name I started out. I go by a different alias everywhere else except here and I was wondering if it is possible to change account name? I will only do it once. I intend to get more active and do stuff over the summer.

    Maybe it'd help if you told us what new name you want...

    Also, creating a new account is not allowed by the rules and will get one/both of the accounts banned.

    No. You won't.

    As mentioned, you should just use the one account, but anyone with access to the ACP (Supervisors or Administrators (or Technician)) can change the name.


    And Infinite Zero, what was your former username? I can't remember.

    The name I want is Shard. I will message the administrators tomorrow since it is a half day. One week of school left (w00t) also thanks for telling me the information. I guessed that there were rules on that and I plan on not braking them so if it can't be done I will just have to work with it.
