Default Can someone change my username?

I don't see a "username change thread". Can someone change my username to M.I.L.F. ?

First, I'm tired of Daryl, second it's a cool name (thanks, Scott!) and third, well...it might help me evade some more harrassment from Voldemort (roffles) as it'll make it harder for him to use a webcrawling program to track my known usernames.

appreciated muchly!

ADMIN NOTE, 07/26/11: If you want your name changed, you must identify yourself in your aka field fully enough that a regular member who had been absent for a few weeks would reasonably be able to identify you upon returning. If you have not identified yourself in your aka field within a few days of having your name changed, your name will be changed to your most frequently known identity at a staff member's discretion. There will be no exceptions to this rule.

done, though you'll probably want to get rid of the "AKA" field to facilitate him not being able to track you

ty

And yeah, I'll do that. thanks for the advice

A username change thread would be cool but I'd recommend some guidelines like:

-Not more than one username change per X days (X is whatever you guys determine)
-No usernames made to offend people (discretion of mods)
-No usernames to impersonate people (although I'd probably be flattered if someone wanted mine xD...not everyone would though >>)
-No usernames that run far enough to stretch the screen.

Um, yeah, that's enough self-important advice for me for a day.

I'd be very much obliged if a kind staff member were to capitalize the "M" in my name. I obviously didn't care about it when I signed up, but more often than not I've seen it capitalized in quotes/addresses, so I say let's make it official FGJ.

Thank you in advance!

This is really dumb... but can I have a space in my user name? Like...
Celes Chere

It's always bugged me how I never spaced it in the first place.

Meh, I think people should stop changing their usernames unless it's for grammatical fixes like in Celes and Munatik's cases. On the web, your handle is your identity. I can't tell who the fuck people are when they change their names. It's not like we have a face or a voice to go by.

First of all, there's no harm in changing one's name. It's fun like changing sigs or avvies. It's not a name is gonna make it that HARD to tell who is who. Second, some people have legit reasons other than grammar errors, etc. for needing the name change (see my first post for an explaination).

I think it'd be different if you were constantly changing your user name. That would be a little annoying. But I think it's easy to tell who is who with their sigs and way of typing. That's just me though, probably.
