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  An exception might be made if the requested name is determined to be no longer active and there is little to no history with the name in question.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).

 

I'd like to change mine to Jessica. The current user with the name Jessica has 1 post but it's not visible.

If you do approve the change to the existing name, will my account keep all of my old posts? If not I don't want to do it.

 

Thanks. :)

Woot! Figured with the new forum I might as well switch it up :)

I didn't get a password reset email though, is the new software different in that regard?

You should have gotten an email from the board, I had that option checked.

 

Might be in spam?

I noticed with the new forum we can manually change our display name (http://forums.phpfre...rea=displayname) and the name I want (Corey - http://forums.phpfre...ser/8521-corey/) is taken but has not been active for a long time. He has 10 posts but they're not visible.

 

I know I'm not in an "named member group", but with the new forum and the ability to change usernames ourselves I figured I'd ask. :)

Oops I was just messing around with it, and I changed my name to "Turd" for sh*ts and giggles.

 

then I returned back and it said "You have made 1 of 1 display name changes since 23 Sep 2012. You are permitted to make 1 changes in a 365 day period."

 

Is it okay, if I can get my name changed back to "monkuar" ?

 

sorry about this. :geek: blah i feel like a fool

Why did you change it to something you didn't want, when there was a message clearly indicating you can only change it once a year?

Why would you change it in the first place knowing you only get 1 change every 365 days?

 

I think you should keep the name you have, at least for a little while.

No hard feelings I hope, but this was indeed priceless, Turd. :P

Guess the lesson is to always pay attention to what you're doing, whether it be programming or anything else. ;)

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.

You can also change your own display name from your profile.

It is currently limited to 1 change per 365 day after 100 approved posts.

I have been searching this for months!

 

I am trying to align all my forum login name, so can I please have my username (login name) changed to abdfahim?

 

I have already changed the display name to that long time back.

 

Thanks
