    There was a thread for name change requests, but they are no longer changing usernames.

    Good day sir.

    Away from civilization.
    Sure it can. They closed the thread due to the overload and nonsense. These days, they seldomly change a username for someone.

    Wow, you are one unreasonable guy aren't you.
    What's impossible about it? What's not right about it?

    Re-create. Stop crying. Problem solved.

    Advising deletion and recreating is pretty stupid. [​IMG] You should know the rules on having more than one account. Even if the account were to be deleted (which would have to be through official channels) it would be more work than changing the name.

    Mods can't help you.
    You need a Supervisor.
    But we've alerted them to your request.

    It's impossible to delete accounts yourself

    And creating a second account is against the rules.

    If that's the case, keep the name till you gain recognition among staff and then ask.

    Reading the 1st through post i thought it was "impossible" and "not right" cause I remember twinretro getting his changed, but then I read his post so....um.....good luck with that. That is why I love my name....never change it for anything in the world

    Just like to say, Thank you for the Name change. I know it isn't much of a difference, but when it comes to the small things, I tend to be a perfectionist. [​IMG]

    Hehe, got the same a little while ago, also had a noncapital first letter in my name.
    Just PM'd a supervisor and got it changed tho [​IMG]

    Anyay, @ mods, don't you think it's smart to close this topic? Otherwise this will just turn into yet another name change topic..

    A large number of posts in this thread are garbage.

    If you want your name to be changed PM a supervisor or admin.

    There was a thread but due to the excessive number of requests (i.e. more than acceptable/doable by staff members) we hid the thread but still take requests via PM.

    I can't imagine anyone having to "fight" for a name change unless there was a good reason for our reluctance.

    Creating dupe accounts is against the rules. So is the suggestion of a rule break.
