Important: Site Update is Coming

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.

Can't wait for the site update, looks awesome! Will you also open up username changes once the site is up again? I think I remember this being mentioned but in another part of the site that that might happen, but it looks to me like you're doing things very slowly (not that that's a bad thing, revamping the site doesn't happen overnight) to ease the transition from the old site to the new one. Either way, excited for the new site! :)

Username changes will be the first thing available. Actually, when you log into the new site for the first time, you'll be prompted to either confirm or change your username. This is because your new profile will be located at cosplay.com/username and some old usernames will not fit the proper URL format.

And you'll still have the option to keep your old username as a display name. Think of it like Twitter where you have a display name and an @name - it's the @name that has to contain only letters/numbers/underscore.

I've also purged all accounts that signed up and never logged back in, so a lot of previously taken usernames will be opening up.

Ahh, I see. Can't wait, I know I've been mentioning this every time an update comes up, but I feel I outgrew this username xD. So I just wanted an opportunity to change it. Good luck when the new site goes live! :)
