This is more of a suggestion than a question.
Well iam sure many of us here wish to change their names, like me i would like to change my current name for example. The suggestion is why not offer people who have been in the forum for lets say 2-3 years to change their names or something like that
Thanks and if this is something not applicable please disregard this as this is just a suggestion

toxict51,

Thanks for your suggestion. I don't think this is as big of a demand as you may think. After all, your name is your reputation, so changing it basically makes you a new face on the forum.

Either way, I am happy to change people's names for them. They just contact me via private message, and I do it.

As for making it a feature, even if the demand was there, I don't think I'd want to let people do that without going through myself or some other administrator. I could envision problems.

Thanks!
Justin

I'd thought about requesting a name change to just 'dave' as that was my original attempt at a user name here but of course it was already taken. But now 'dave' is dormant and hasn't been used in years (unless someone has snuck the name in recently). I imagine whoever owns it is long gone and has probably forgotten their password anyway. So it ought to be available to a new user.

However I decided against that. If you google 'daveincaps' you always get me. (Although for some reason google will often ask if you mean 'waveincaps'. What is waveincaps?) But if you google 'dave' you'll get every dave that's ever posted anything anywhere and my postings would be lost in that mess. And we certainly can't have that!

If you want your name changed... please PM me! You can do this by clicking on my name in this response, then clicking on my name in my user profile.

Thanks!
