I want to change my name!

Postby Dennis » 13 Apr 2008, 00:54

Changing your name is only possible on 3 times a year. Instead of the mods changing names on request like we used to do, we're having regular "name change days" where we open up this feature to users for 24 hours. The last name change-days were on April 9th, August 9th and December 9th 2008, April 9th, August 10th and December 9th 2009.

The next name change day will be April 9th 2010 (DenDen's birthday) from midnight to midnight CET! There's no way to change your name other than on this date.


SInce name change days have been regulary neglected by us, we decided to undo and go back to "change names on request" - within reason. changing your name leads to a lot confusion among your fellow members who might not recognize you, so we wont do it too frequently for the same person!

people want to change their names at different times, and not everyone will make it on that day, which is why we offer it more regulary.

also, it's fun to change your name for silly inside-jokes for a day :D

Does this mean we can change our names an unlimited amount of times now? (as long as it's on these special days)
