Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

No, you cannot have your name changed

    I don't even think PHP has a "then."

    It uses C-style syntax
    if(true)
    {
    
    }
    

    the brackets are your "Then" and "Endif" I'd suppose in that style.

    Hey guys, I don't really have a solid grasp on how webforums work, so I'm just going to throw out a ridiculous theory that makes complete sense in my head that could totally/easily/cheaply enable a feature that the admin has expressly stated will never happen.

    I think The Count Of Midget Fisto is my favorite name change.

    Also, part of the magic of name changes is being around when they happen. It's sort of like the lottery. Only, instead of maybe losing the dollar you end up being stuck with the faggy name you chose when you signed up.

    There isn't going to be any change in policy that results in more people getting their names changed. Sorry. I'm not giving the moderators any more work purely because people want to change their handle which no one but them cares about anyway. This is a policy unlikely to change under the current administration.

    Obviously, the solution is to plant a bomb in the PA admin lounge. Or plant evidence of some crime.

    But that's the problem. When Cardboard Tube does it, it's not illegal.

    I see. A bomb it is, then!

    It'd be the evil half. What we're looking at is the internet dickwad theory. In reality, Tube may just be a no-bullshit lawyer. But on the internet, he turns into... well, retains being a fucker.

    Because lawyers are fuckers.

    You know the English stole Berwick from us. That little town at the very very north of England? Used to be Scottish. Course that was hundreds of years ago when they occupied the country, and before the events of Braveheart (scion of cinematic historical accuracy that it is) so I don't suppose it matters, but still.

    Oh and to be vaguely on topic, I think I've figured out how to change LewieP's name without inconveniencing LewiePs Mummy.

    Change it to LewiePs Mummys Son.

    I mean, I know it's not happening, but I'm just throwing the suggestion out there.

    PLEASE REALIZE that Cardboard Tube is both the legislator AND THE JUSTICE. The law was drafted to not have any loopholes by design, and Cardboard Tube will always interpret it in a fashion that comes back to the simple fact that you cannot have your name changed under any circumstance. This is as true as gravity.
