    Username Change Request

    Hi,

    I would appreciate it if I could change my username to "theturbanator" (without quotes).

    Thank you!

    Re: Username Change Request

    Interestingly, that's not what it seems like from other "username change request" threads.

    Moreover, this is an exceptional case, as I am not comfortable with the transparency of my username it terms of the amount of personal information it provides. I think that I should be able to decide how much personal information I am willing to divulge at any given moment, and I am not comfortable with the amount that is being divulged.

    Thank you.

    Re: Username Change Request

    From the FAQ:
    Can I change my username?

    No. Usernames can not be changed - dashes can not be added, lowercase cannot be made uppercase, etc. However, you may choose to create a new account and then request that we disable the original one. The only exceptions to this are extreme cases, such as when a user has been harassed by another user or when the username contains the member's email address or real name.

    Note: If you do make a new account, you will have to transfer all information yourself, as we will not do this for you. Also, we can't transfer your statistics (beans, account age and the like) to the new account.
    You can make a new account (please PM me with the account ID), I'll disable this one, and remove all personal information. Thanks.

    Edit: Sorry Kiwi, I did not see you were logged in
    To the OP: please give the new account username to any of us.

    Re: Username Change Request

    your quote says that the user name is changed in extreme cases when the user name includes the user name's real name... mine does.
    so i would request that it is changed to "theturbanator" as I would like to use the same email address and currently cannot (there cannot be two user names from the same email address)

    all the other threads requesting user name change allowed changes, and my reason is MUCH more valid.

    Oh, if this is your real name, I'd be okay. Kiwi ?

    Re: Username Change Request

    it is my real name, and it is unfortunate that i've had to broadcast it so much...

    i WAS, with my second post, trying to subtly hint at that fact without having to explicitly state that, yes, indeed, it is my real name...
