    Okay, this seems to be the new place to have your name changed. I'm stealing Shoomonger's post. Post your name change requests here, basicly.

    -zpqrei


    When asking for a name change, please post the name you want and a back up just in case your first choice is taken.
    Please be patient when requesting a name change. We dont spend 100% of our time on site tasks, so your request can take from a few minutes, to a few days.

    Also please remember, YOUR LOGIN WILL CHANGE. Log in using your new name.

    -drpepper

    *Requests will be deleted as they are dealt with.

    *Cleaned up thread on 07/22/10

    After several months of using the Steam name Muffin I suddenly remembered that my forum name is still Muffin Man. Which I never use anymore. If it could be just Muffin that would be swell.

    Recently I've been trying to drop my old username in favor of just using my first name and last initial. If I could have my username changed to "Will T.", I'd appreciate it. :)

    If for some technical reason that doesn't work, "Will T" (no period) or "Will-T" (hyphen instead of space) would be good instead.

    After ages of using it, I might as well update.

    "The Abyss"

    Because everyone loves Nietzsche quotes.

    (no quotes though, obviously)

    My request was made over a month ago, but seems to have been missed ... reminding about it now. ;)

    I'd still like my name changed to "Will T." please.

    So... If this thread is still active (which by the unanswered requests I presume not) can I please have my name changed to:

    Etch

    I've had my current one since I was a 12 year old playing runescape and it's definitely time for a change.

    Also, just wondering why there can't be something in the user cp to change this, it would be easier for everyone.

    Probably because there's always that risk that someone will misuse it, changing their name twice a day and becoming impossible to follow since they have 1,000 different names. Putting some kind of restriction on it could help, like changing it only once a month or something, but even then someone could misuse it...

    -----------

    Still waiting another month later (2 months now) for a name change to "Will T." ...

    I agree, maybe if it was only allowed something like once a month. But there needs to be a more effective way to do it.
    I presume that it's just a group of people who have the ability to do it and if one of them happens to stumble across this thread, and can be bothered to change peoples names, then they do it. Maybe if there was a single person who was in charge, and if the got sent an e-mail or a pm every time someone wanted their name changed, then they could change it straight away instead of awkwardly waiting for someone else to do it.

    If I may mention runescape,

    but they have it so you can change your display name every 28 days. Really, if make you think because you have the name for a whole month. It worked pretty well in the game. The only issue the change history, they didn't have it. if there is away to like show alias's (as a simple link) that would make things easy.

    If at all possible, could I just get a space between "Ragnar" and "Homsar" in my name?
