    The "Change my name" thread

    Seeing as how some people may get a little tired of their old username, or they just made a typo is the reason why this thread exists.

    To put this in the simplest terms possible, every user* is granted multiple major name changes (with a catch, of course). And they are granted unlimited** minor changes.

    Here is how you know that your name is being changed in the MAJOR terms.

    -A complete name change (ex. From Rebel Vanguard to Shock Trooper)
    -Changing one part of your name to something else, while the other part stays the same (ex. Rebel Vanguard to Rebel Smuggler)

    As of April 30th, we have changed the Major Change rule, note that this ONLY applies to people who have already gotten a major name change. And if you get a major name change, this will apply to you. Here it is:

    -Major name changes are unlimited, but have a one year time limit before next change. The new changes will be timestamped.
    -1 Year after 2nd or 3rd name change
    -Must be an active user in good standing (At least posts a few times a month minimum and haven't recieved anything higher than a 3 point infraction (And if you have a 3 pointer or higher, you must wait until it expires))

    Here is how you know your name is being changed in the MINOR terms.

    -Capitalizing a letter - ex. rebel vanguard to Rebel Vanguard
    -Adding numbers - ex. Eltrotraw to Eltrotraw123
    -Taking out a number - ex. rebsieheart123 to rebsieheart
    -changing a letter - ex. jryanm to jlyanm
    -add/take out letters - ex. bespin to espin

    So if you made a mistake on your name or just tire of it. Post here and a mod will change it.

    Another thing I'd like to add is that if you post for the sole purpose of saying "nice name change lol" you will get in trouble, same as if you post saying that a user should get their name changed. Leave those to PM's or user messages.

    And due to the forum switch, we lost our log on whose name we've changed in the past(?) Therefore, everybody has 1 major name change to be used.

    * = Must be an active user with a clean record to obtain a 2nd or 3rd Major Change.

    ** = If you keep getting minor changes, then over time it will be considered a major change. 5 minor changes equal 1 major change, depending on the intervals in which you requested a change.

    Changed Names:

    Would changing "Mkan" to "Makn" be minor?

    If so go for it, if not whatever.

    I should probably mention that I changed Ultimate Yoshi's name from Yoshi to his current one.

    I would consider that minor so *hopefully* lucky you.

    And what would "Makn" stand for? Meta at Knight Night?

    And you guys should add the people's name's you changed, so it will be easy to keep track of.

    I thought "meta_knight_at_night" was before your time.

    And it doesn't really stand for that anymore, it's more just like what people call me, and I didn't like *extremely long name at night* so I thought "Eh what the heck."

    And on some forums I go by Makn such as Smogon and Team Uber, but lol activity.

    I'll leave it to Rebel to reorganize the post to include changed names :P

    Yes you can actually, but I ask. Are you asking or saying that you want it changed?
    And what's this?

    X-Scissor is what I wanna change mine to. It's my favorite Pokemon move and it starts with X, which my current one ends with. It's just a fun way to celebrate HeartGold and SoulSilver! Change your name, kid.

    Re: The "Change my name" thread

    May I have my name changed to "Peasley Vyers Minamimoto"? Or, if that's too long, "Adonis Sho Peasley"?

    And why is that? Is that because there is no space between the words? It doesn't matter if other people don't like it, if you like it, then don't change it. But it's just your opinion and you already made that decision.

    First is too long, but I'll go ahead and change it to the second if it fits. Sorry it took so long, but I've been a bit busy lately.

    Sorry, it seems it's too long. It won't let me change it to anything over 25 characters.

    I guess so? All right, done.

    That's weird, because I counted 24 characters.

    I'm just saying what the software told me when I tried to change it. Something in there must count as more than one character, for some reason.

    Thanks, jry. I didn't mind the wait, and I had almost forgotten I had done this until I saw my profile link.
