Daniel0 Posted July 6, 2011 Share Posted July 6, 2011 We will allow one username change per account. If you want to change your username please reply to this topic with your desired username, but think carefully as you will not get another chance. The PHP Freaks administration gives username changes low priority, so it might take a while before your username gets changed. We may also reject any request at our discretion if we feel it is inappropriate or will cause too much confusion. Name change requests are just that: requests. We are not in any way obligated to comply with your request, and we may or may not approve the request, with or without reason, at our sole discretion. We will NOT consider name changes for people with less than 100 posts. This rule is to help keep us from being crazy flooded with requests, and also to help us from inadvertently aiding spammers/bots. Do NOT attempt to "spam" your way to 100 posts with random "I agree" or other 1-liner posts. If we determine that you have done this, not only will the request be denied, but you may receive a warning or ban. We will NOT consider a name change to a name that already exists, unless you are in a named member group. This is to serve as a means to keep from being flooded with requests by random people wanting to take over the "shorter" names, and also serve as an additional "perk" for being promoted. NOTE: even if you are in a named member group, it is still unlikely to be approved. An exception might be made if the requested name is determined to be no longer active and there is little to no history with the name in question. For instance, if someone signed up like 10 years ago and made 1 post and hasn't been back since, we might consider releasing the name. But this is at our sole discretion. If by some miracle we do allow you to take over a previously taken name, please note that in order to do this, an automated password reset will occur (an email is sent to the email address in your profile), and your login user name will be changed to the new username. This will only happen for name changes that involve taking over names that previously existed. For regular name changes, you will still use your current login credentials (your original username and current password). Do NOT reply to this topic with things that are not username change requests. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
