I hate surveys where you can't see the results.

Also, on the username question. I mean, other web 2.0 sites don't allow you to change usernames simply because it's confusing and chaotic, and if your username becomes a serious/extreme problem you could always contact juggle or make a new account. I feel like we're really losing credibility suggesting so many small and unnecessary ideas that not even everyone agrees with, instead of focusing on the big ideas like team debates, and reestablishing the side panel, that would actually make the quality of the site better.

It's a bad idea to create an option to change your username because people would change it as often as their avatars.

Btw, I don't know what the point of insisting on using a secret voting system for these sort of things is. It's hackable. I could easily vote 40 times right now. But I'm not going to this time.

No. Only if it is for important purposes. For example, if a member with a username like "Xjei98130" becomes moderator, it would be much more practical if the username were changed to "Xjei" or something easier to recognize and understand.

For common purposes, never. Keep it simple.

No. Wallstreet's conversion to Islam would be so much funnier were he able to change his name to Wallstreetfundamentalist. Alas!

I just thought of that. Damn, this site would become confusing. Maybe there should be a limit on how many changes you can have? Like once a year or something?

Right. It should be left open for special circumstances, as it is now.

Most of the changes are good except for the fact it is harder to see the open challanges now.

I think the mods should be able to change usernames, or maybe just Juggle. That way, people couldn't do it on a whim, and if they CONSTANTLY were trying to change it, the mods wouldn't allow it.

True. He didn't convert to Islam, he's just pretending to be a muslim to make a mockery of it.

No, no, no.

The point of having a consistent user name is to identify who is who. I think people should not change avatars, for the same reason, but I wouldn't prohibit that.

I voted not sure one the first two, but I think I would change them to no after reading this thread. There are some good points about how this would be really confusing. People are attached to their name, and thats how we know who they are. It would be wierd and confusing if that were to change.
