Username change.

Archived Thread
Our site is currently being changed over to the new version. Everything you see is currently in read-only mode. Additionally, the layout and UI will not be complete until all sections have been re-enabled, so please ignore any layout issues (or bland-ness) at this time.

I've been wondering about this for awhile and have contacted a couple people pertaining this question, but are we going to get the chance to change out usernames again?

We do username change requests every year or so, we'll have one more round of them but it won't be for a while yet.

Last time we did it everyone wished that we'd given a couple of weeks notice, so we'll announce them 2 weeks prior to the change date.

In what month will happen user name change? I'm afraid I'll miss it...

#5 Admin on 6 years ago

It will be some time in August, we're going to post some information shortly. We've had so many requests lately that we're going to just move the date back and do them before we add the new site features.

#6 Admin on 6 years ago

We're going to go ahead and do these on August 13-14, so this is a 2-week notice for username changes. I'll have a more official announcement up tomorrow.

It's fine to send the requests in now, Aug 13-14 are just the dates we'll be doing the actual name changes.

But, if you would like a username change, please do the following:

Send your request to account named UsernameChange (no spaces)


Clicking the link above will auto-fill it for you.

In the subject, put "Username Change Request" and in the body of the message, make sure you put the username you'd like it changed to.

Username requests are first come first served, so if someone else requests the same username, it will go to the first person who PM'ed.

Please be sure to check that a username is not already registered, using the Search bar up top. Also, you can put a few choices in the PM if you're afraid something might get snapped up before you send your PM - just make sure to note which one is your preferred new name.

We typically get 250+ requests whenever we do this, so please be patient and allow the person doing the changes to complete everything.

The username changes will not occur until August 13 and 14, though some may be done next week.
