Default Answered: Why Can Some People Change Their Usernames, But Others Can't?

Lately, I've been seeing people on WI who changed their usernames. The old username didn't contain anything inappropriate or personal, but they were still allowed to change their names. And then, there are other people I've heard of that want to change their username for the same reason as those that have already changed their name, but they aren't allowed to. Why is this?

I think I know 1 reason why... Turtlegirl and Puppylove both had a heart symbol (alt 3) after their usernames and for some reason, they couldn't log in, so they emailed the admins about this and got it changed (Turtlegirl stayed the same, but without the heart symbol and Puppylove is Chatterbox4eva)

The only other reason I can think of is personal informarion...

IS THIS ON WEBKINZ or on Webkinz insider?

if it is on WI please say so

Hmm... I remember reading that before, people could change their usernames ONCE and it had to stay that way, but then they took that feature away. I have seen this as well.. maybe they had a reason to change it, but it just wasn't too obvious? I would contact a moderator or admin.

Ok! Like, I saw some people who changed their names in memory of their dead pets and the like.

Ave probably hit the nail right on the head! Also, some users may leave WI, and come back, and start up a new account. Those who are banned, also do this sometime, and they aren't suppose to, it's against the rules... I haven't heard of any new features for name changing again, so maybe you're getting confused, or there was a very small reason it was editted. I hope you find out the true answer!
