Default WI Username Change for WI Bucks

I've thrown out this idea here and there a couple times, but I want to get other people's opinions too.

I recently saw a thread asking if you like your username here on WI, and it made me think, what if you could change your username on WI, perhaps by spending WI Bucks (like 50,000 [just throwing out a random amount of WI Bucks]).

I think it would be a great idea to be able to change it for WI Bucks since there aren't many uses for WI Bucks anyways right now, other than a subscription to WI (which for me, is really no big deal).

AND if you changed it, there could be something that says something like 'Previously: MeWuvKitties' or something like that so it wouldn't confuse people. Also, there could be a limit to how often you could do it, like maybe every 6 months or something? (That way people couldn't change their username every week)

I know quite a few people have said that they don't really like their username anymore, or have gotten tired of them, so I think it would be a great way to use WI Bucks. Obviously if you like your username, you wouldn't need or want to use this feature, but for those who want to change it, this would be an easy way to do it. Also, by doing this, it would probably help lower the amount of multiple accounts on WI. On other sites I used to play on, the majority of the time, people only created new accounts because they didn't like their other name, so by doing this, it would probably reduce the amount of people who have more than one account.

I know that if I had the opportunity to change my username on here for WI Bucks that I would.
I only used this name because it's the same as my Webkinz World account.
At the time I joined, I was a member of many different websites, and I always got them confused, so I figured I would make this username the same as my Webkinz World username so that I wouldn't forget what it was.
But I just think 'MeWuvKitties' sounds too kiddy-ish, and I would really love the change it.
I already have my username picked out for what it would be if I could change it too.

It's a pretty neat idea, I think...but it may cause confusion. If there was someway to do this without confusion, it would be even better...
Like

AKA CardnlFanCarly

Or something like that!

^^^but they'd have to keep their subname (in this case, cardnlfancarly)

Good idea. On another site I go onto, you can change your username for "bucks."
Once you get your username changed though, under your user you have to put

"Was _____" for a specific time?

This is a good idea. Im thinking that this might cause a little confusion though? How will we know who was who? Maybe in a signature say "Was _____"

Maybe under your username where you WW ID goes maybe we would have to put our old username there?

But I think it should cost more because a one month Insider Insider is 50,000.

They have this option on a few other sites I go on. The only problem I see in this is WI has a lot of members. The staff would have to check and see if the name requested is taken, and then if it is the member would have to think of something else. That sort of thing. vBulliten doesn't have that option like it has the subscriptions. It has to be manually done by the Staff.

This has been suggested before and shot down. The answer is "no" because you can only have a username change if your current one is inappropriate, rude or gives too much personal info. Good idea, though.

I would be simple and go to the register page and type in the name I would change to. But I wouldn't be making a new account, of course, just checking if the name I want is taken. That, I think members can do themselves.

It could be approved.
They can get specific mods for that.
