Default Is it possible to change username?

No. The mods might let you create a new user account and ban this one but I haven't seen them do that for anyone so I am not sure they will.

They used to, iirc. Like they let Cake change his name from whatever it used to be to Cake. I think they stopped doing it though because it led to too much confusion.

You have no idea. Being referred to as hardo or had-o by people you've known for years... It's a very personal form of hell.

We don't do whimsical name changes. A lot of people would like to have changed their name, but it makes it difficult to keep track of people.

There should be a user named Username and we should all be changing him or her into something he or she isn't. That'd be terrible.

I think your username is fine. It could be literally anything, as your impression is constructed through an accumulation of all your output.


'deathvirtuoso' doesn't lend too much weight in that impression, so it gives you a lot chances in developing your persona. There are relatively much worse usernames to choose from.


*not that I'm all that big on developing personas. I just observe and output what comes to mind.

okay i was going to keep this to myself bc it's stupid,
but whenever your username comes up deathvirtuoso, i get the image of zorro, the one played by antonio banderas, in my head
i dont even understand how my brain arrived at this association
????

and "urakro" gives me image of sunrise...perhaps influenced by avatar

Default Dear admin,

Would it be at all possible to change my name to 'Pmj'? The doubling up of that was an 'admin error'.

No worries if not - it isn't a biggie.

Cheers.

If the local moderation does not want honor your request, close down his account and start a new one under a new name.

Some of the more considerate, welcoming, and caring forums moderation teams I've seen around have made provisions for their members to change their screen names once every 3-6 months.

In stark contrast to this response:

Default Re: Is it possible to change username?

viche, name changes have been disallowed for many years. There are legitimate reasons for this, and you can look them up. "Stark responses" are warranted, given that there is a sticky thread in the General section informing users of the owner's decision and has been for many years. Users need to inform themselves about the forum rules, and mods cannot be expected to reiterate them all the time.

New accounts are granted in rare circumstances, at mod discretion. We are interested in keeping identity continuity on this forum, unlike the forums where members change their names every 3-6 months leaving other members in a state of confusion about their forum identity and misleading them.

You should consider if you understand the situation and forum rules sufficiently enough before giving advice to other users.

Freshly made alternative accounts will be banned and the user will be expected to stick to their original account in the absence of prior mod approval.

Default Re: Is it possible to change username?

Okay, i created this thread 2 months ago. But one of the major reasons why i need to change is because my username is sort of linked to my "real life". and there is this person i really need to get rid of. I'd file a harrassment report if i had enough evidence. The thing is XX searches ANY possible username i can have online etc. on ANY forums XX thinks i frequent. fuckkkkk really need to get rid of such a scum.

Edit: somehow typed 'reasons' instead of 'evidence' lol

Edit again: just realized this thread was created 2 months ago, not 1

I just feel invaded very easily. And i want some damn privacy. There are actually some other reasons, but still. Like you, i want to "reinvent myself" therefore i have to get rid of some people in my life, and keep only what matters. Cant do that when a scum is around.

Fine, i'll change it. (It's not that bad.)

That's all nice and pretty. My question is why didn't you think about privacy when creating this account? Did you feel threatened afterwards?

Deathvirtuoso is a neutral name anyone could take, except if you've violated privacy 101 and there's a link between your credentials and this nickname.
You can contact admins of sites hosting your real information requesting they remove it, you can also contact google to hide search results with your real name.

If the problem is serious you can pm me with the details and we can think about the solution.

That's not serious enough. I think there's plenty of users in a similar situation. You can try changing your youtube username.

If only I had quid for every time I'd prompted someone into wondering that..

What do you mean you used to be an eight.. Is there a cure?!?!?

In short, fucking with people is my favorite past time.. Youknow, after smoking weed.

Cure??? I much rather be 8 (ok maybe not. I remember having a lot of "contained anger") I'd be more successful but 8 is still in my tri-type lol can't decide if I'm 584 or 548, tho I'm guessing it's the latter? Idk, try getting depression.

What the hell. That's a ridiculous past time. I don't fuck with people as long as they don't fuck with me in short, I stay the fuck out of people's lanes and pray they return the favour.
