Default Re: name change

This has been addressed many times before and probably won't happen. I had to change my username but I didn't ask to and I didn't really want to but Cows4you had to take out the last part of my username out (it had my birthday in it). (:

i think it would be too confusing. and even if you put your original username in your siggie, wouldn't you get tired of the siggie? I just think we should stick to our original usernames.

Default Re: name change

Somewhere on another thread a mod or admin posted saying username changes are only done if they reveal personal information , and they happen very rarely and takes a lot of work because justin needs to go around changing your username on all posts and threads, etc.

But i do like the idea (: I'm still thinking if it were to happen by some chance , once in every 3 months may still get confusing, even if you keep your original username in your signature... maybe once in every 6 months ?

I think it would be confusing, because if everyone switched their usernames I wouldn't be able to tell who anybody was! And I'm perfectly satisfied with my username.

Using WI bucks for it is a great idea though! But not the every 3 or 6 months thing... Also, growing out of a username is kind of a bad excuse... Personally, I dislike MY username, but it doesn't bother me much, since people just call me Jenny, Jen or JP... Maybe, WI could just have a Nickname thing, under your username? Kind of like the Username thing... Nice idea though

Default Re: name change

I do not think this is a good idea. It would be very confusing, and it would take Justin a long time to change it all. Also, user names are only changed in they have personal info or they are inappropriate. Plus, some people don't read signatures or they set up their account so they do not see signatures.

Every 3 months would be a bit much.
Every 6 months-a year would be better.
I can see how it would get confusing, but I do wish there was some way to change your username if you want.
