Default Name Change.

Hi ! Thanks for viewing!


I was thinking that we should have an option to request a username change. Sometimes, someone "accidently" puts some type of personal info in their username, and then they want to change it.

I know that might not be very likely, but it could happen, just like on WW, they have the option to change your username, just in case it has personal info in it. The only reason to change a username if one was requested though, would be that it holds personal information in it, and before the staff would change it, they would check to make sure it has personal info in it.

Some new members don't know that personal information is NOT allowed on the forum before they become a member, (although they should look around the forum first before joining,) so a username change would be great.

Any comments appreciated.

I think I made a thread like this a while back. It is closed right now.

Anyway, I think WI can't do this.

They allow you to change your username if it has personal info in it, but for other reasons it's not really necessary. You just have to PM a staff member about it, so it can get changed. (:

I like the idea and I'm not sure if it's possible or not, but I have seen things in usernames that hint at their age...

It might not be possible, your right.

Thanks for the info! I was trying to say it would be only used if your username had personal info.

It sounds like a good idea, but can you imagine how many people would want to change their user name just because they got tired of the one they originally chose?

It is possible to have it changed as Whiteterrierfan stated, only if it contains personal info. It just has to be discussed with a Mod/Admin.

Yes, it would be only used for changing your username for personal info, like I stated in my post.

kayambee, you are right also. Many people might want to change their username a lot. Like 50 times. It will be harder to know who you are since you might want to change your avvie.
