Change names?

Post by BLoemetje » Tue 29th Nov 2011

I was wondering, are mods or admins able to change someone's username? Because if they can, I'd really want my username to be Iris. I made this account really fast, and even used two capitals instead of one :S.
On the other hand I understand that admins can't keep changing names, or that it isn't possible. And then I'll just do with BLoemetje.

But if you can, it would make me really happy..

I think admins and mods can change names, but I'm not sure, sorry.

only admins can change names, I had mine changed, but currently names changes are not being offered it can get quite confusing if everyone wanted to change their names.

^well, some solutions to not get confused when someone changes their name is to start a name changes thread or require them to write down their old name in their siggie or something.

I'm afraid that could be confusing as well, I realize some of you want to change your names but it will make it harder for the mods and admins to do their jobs.
