  • Enable the ability ti change forums username

    The ability to change your forums username should be enabled

    The ability to change your forums username should be enabled as it would provide a great feature for players such as myself that made a huge mistake upon registering.

    If you dislike your username and you changed it in game, it would be nice to be able to change it on the forums as well. For example, my in game name was "Nemoguy29" previously in game, and as I grew up I disliked the name and I changed it to "JellyPies". I would rather be referenced by my new name and decrease confusion when posting on the forums by changing my forums name to match my in game name.

    There's not a good reason to not enable it. Some may argue stating people can try to change their name when they do something bad to avoid punishment, however VBulletin logs name changes to accounts, and reports will still stick the the account even after name change. Like if I were to break a forums rule, and change my name, it would still be traced back to my account if a player made a report about me.

    Some may argue that changing your name to often should be disallowed as it can be "abusive" to the system. In the case that a user can frequently change to name to "abuse" the system, the forums software also allows you to set max amount of times you can change your name, and a cooldown.

      Yeah, why not :P
      Confidence is the key. If you do not believe in yourself, NOBODY will.

        Currently, the only way you can do that is by contacting Nekorei. I think you aren't allowded to change your forum name all by yourslef because it may result in people becoming imposters! .

        It can also cause quite a number of other complications.

          1. NekoRei won’t get spammed in her inbox.
          2. People won’t have to create threads about ‘changing their name’.

            The ability to blacklist usernames from use is also possible with this forums software. You will need to be more specific about "Other complications"

              It's a great suggestion, to be honest.

                      Give a man a wl, and he will learn to rely on you.
                      Teach a man to make wls and you'll set him up for success.
