    Hey...I mean if you want to change my name to either

    Sexi_Squidward

    or

    Squid

    I'm known by Squid in the IRC and Sexi_Squidward by the rest of the internet

    I made this name without thinking (well I was all about this name cause it's my xbox name but I'd prefer to be Sexi_Squidward or Squid if possible)

    also it was a mistake, dumb or not you learn from it...if it were possible I'd have it deleted to stop this embarrassment because I didnt think it would lead to such a big deal at the time.

    do you really want to see the day when you don't recognise a poster because their username is a flighty fashion choice? Also, I'd presume it still has an effect on the servers.

    Well, the reasons given as to why we can't have our named changed are kind of invalid now. Tube won't have to spend all his time changing names, and the forum software is (hopefully) stable enough to take the strain. Theoretically, all that has to happen is an admin flips a switch and goes "Ok fucktards, you have 24 hours to make up your minds" and that can be that.

    It's not going to happen because we're not mature enough to handle it. The first time Tube opens a window for us to change our names, someone will pick an offensive name or a name similar to someone banned or whatever just to rouse the masses or garner attention. It would also be very confusing to have names constantly changing if Tube did it on a regular basis. And no matter HOW often it happened, people would constantly PM Tube to open name changes because "Aphid Milker" is no longer the witty Meme of the Week.

    But, most importantly, it would mean no more coin flip name changes. And we can't end that.

    Offers of that nature have not had a positive reception, historically speaking.

    There was a (or was it two?) name change on the list for last year's Solid Saints Auction (for Child's Play), so it's technically possible that the same will be offered this year 'round Christmastime

    Because I wanted to see people's new names (like I just saw Mr. Defecation just simplified to M.D.) and also give further praise to those that giveth to charity.
