I was wondering if it is possible to change my DDO account username. I made this account in high school and would really like the chance to change it to something more respectable haha.

You can't. If yo really want to change your name, you have to create another DDO account (and close down your current one).
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.

Danielle (theLwerd) and Rusty (denote) both managed to get their names changed. I think you have to get the mods to do it.

I wish I had known that. 71 debates down the drain...

Don't worry, they don't make exceptions like that anymore.

We'll no longer do this.

The only way to change your username is to deactivate your account and create a new one.

From the new and improved FAQ found at the bottom of the page:

Q: Can I change my username?

A: No. The username you create when you sign up will be the same for the life of your account.

The simplest answers I can provide are:

1) The frequent requests for username changes would become unnecessarily burdensome for Juggle and the moderators.

2) Keeping track of accounts by unique account numbers, rather than the name itself, would make things more difficult for moderators.

Ok, so better question, why not just let users change their name (though a limited amount of times to reduce spamming) as a profile option?

It's something worth considering if there is a large enough demand from the membership for it. It's not like there is an option for it that is just blocked so we can "just let" members do this. This would take time and effort to work into the site, and issues (like the second answer I gave) would still remain and need to be resolved.

Ultimately I don't see how much benefit there would be to have this option on the site. Though it may be worth considering once every other issue on the site has been fixed.

I guess my question is, how high on the list of priorities would members like to see this option? And how much would it benefit the site overall?

Airmax is lying. He will change your username after a certain number of sexual favors for himself and members of his staff.

Why not just pick a username that you won't get tired of? That way you won't have this issue in the first place.

Mods could keep track by email address. Or even a sort of handle. Twitter as your account handle, but lets you make your name whatever you want.

I guess my question is, how high on the list of priorities would members like to see this option? And how much would it benefit the site overall?

Honestly, I just want something. Seriously, something to show us that something is being done. I don't even care what, as long as it's beneficial to users in some way or another.
