Tat would be dumb. Then people wouldn't know who you are anymore because members would be changing their usernames monthly.

You are still new, I've been stuck with TUF for years! What are you complaining about!? Lol jk.

Clash of clans gives you a one time name change you can use whenever you want. Would be cool to have that here too. But more than once is too much.

Just deactivate your old account and make a new one if you want a new username that badly. It'd be annoying if done in excess, though.

I agree with other posters that allowing people to change their usernames could get confusing quite quickly.

If I could, though, I'd like the remove the dot between "FullMetal" and "Alchemist".

I highly doubt they would only give it once chance. Either way, it would be too confusing.

Maybe, but I think it should be an option on all websites and for this one--at least once. They could inform their 'friends' via PM or something.

But if you have a trouble maker, or someone harassing another member, they could easily change their name. Nobody would even know.

True...unless they were restrictions placed on *who* could change their usernames, which would probably be better. Most trouble makers tend to be 'known' and anyone who harasses another member(s) are generally complained about, so they could be exempt.

Restricting members and finding out *who* these trouble makers are would cause allot more work for Max. It's useless.

It would be confusing. People in the darker areas of the site(religious forum) would probably change their user name constantly in order to harass another user.

I would be ok with that so long as your DDO history follows you. I am totally against someone changing their user name to get rid of their history.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%
