    Hey guys,

    Looking to get a username change. I've had this account collecting dust in the GBATemp databases for a while, and I don't really use this alias anymore. If possible, could I get a username change to TheReturningVoid?

    Thanks in advance!

    Between insane and insecure
    Normally your best bet is to message an Admin or Supervisor to see if they are willing to change your normal. They usually change screen names of lesser known/lower post count members without much hassle. It's normally only older/popular members who may see some issues when it comes to screen name changes.
    Either way, shoot one them a message.

    Well, yes, it can but that's probably not the best choice, just not the full name.

    Popular as in, post count. Follow count means NOTHING.

    Yes, there was once a megathread about it, and I did mine there. Went from JayRo to Jayro.

    If someone's handing out name changes, any chance they could change mine to 'tan-tan'? I made this account ages ago and currently am regretting my choice of username. I hardly have any posts so hopefully it wouldn't be too hard on the server? ._.;

    [or if someone could kindly inform me who would be best to message in regards to that. i don't really want to bother the mods with something so trivial but]

    Why is message count relevant for changing username? Jeez I should've asked to change my username before I started posting actively again .. :rolleyes:

    Is there a way I can see a list of users on this forum so that I may check the username I want is available? And does it matter who I message?
