While this won't affect most forum members, we're implementing a new policy effective immediately regarding name changes. This is to cut down on what seems to be a growing trend of casual name changes, leading to confusion on the part of many other forum members.

The name change requesting process will remain the same; you can PM one of the four Administrators asking for a name change and we will handle it. We have thought up restrictions, though.

First up, you can only have three name changes per year. Each name is binding for at least three months, meaning you can only make a request three months or more after your previous name change. No more of this twice-a-week business. We will be keeping track of your name changes ourselves. Lastly, the "formerly known as" line must be kept in your signature for three weeks after its changing. We've been finding users are taking out the line way too quickly, and it defeats the purpose of us putting it in there in the first place.

Just remember the law of threes; 3-per-year, 3 months between changes, 3 weeks with the line in your signature. Simple, right? Thanks for your involuntary compliance.

Ahh, if it was 4 per year, I'd change my name every 3 months. :lol: Mali on the other hand would be looking for a loophole so she can change her name every day. :P

Do our previous namechanges count in this new policy of the almighty trinity?



















































....because then Malilove wouldn't be alllowed to change her name for a coupla years, probably. :lol:

Joe_D, or something. I seriously didn't go into the Admin CP. He had it for, like, 2 days before he begged me to change it back. I remember changing it. :lol:

Christopher

Linja
09-03-2006, 12:20 PM
Hmm.. oddly enough, yes. But it's slipped away from me :lol:

[edit] Obi Wan St0fobi, Aayla St0fura (but then again, she was female), Admiral St0fbar, Anakin St0fo, Darth St0f, Dexter St0fster, St0f-St0f Binks (:lol:), St0f the Hutt.

You think what I had in mind and slipped away was horrible? Look at what actually made it through my keyboard :lol:

Yeah, I didn't see that. :lol:

Obi Wan St0fobi, St0f-St0f Binks and St0f the Hutt are my favourites. Guess I can have all of them this year, 3 changes. :P ;)

Linja

*squee* :lol: that'd be entertaining.

Christopher
09-03-2006, 12:29 PM
*squee* :lol: that'd be entertaining.

Is there a maximum number of letters for your nickname ?

If not I'll change my name to "Obi Wan St0fobi aka. St0f-St0f Binks aka. St0f the Hutt". :lol:

Even, though. The St0f-inator or The St0f-atron are classics too. *headdesk*

Linja
