We all feel like we need a change from time to time, so if you're looking for a nick change post your request here.
Some ground rules on name changes:
1. The requested user name cannot be too similar to user name of Beta Testers, Moderators, Staff, or admin to avoid causing confusion.
2. No inappropriate names will be allowed. (emails as names, bad language etc.)
3. No more than one (1) user name change within a twelve month period (exceptions will be made for spelling/grammar errors).
4. Post your user name as a reply to this post; make sure you type it out exactly as you wish it to appear. We will simply copy/paste what you put.
5. Please note that the forum has a limit of 20 characters for usernames. This includes spaces and symbols. Usernames must contain a minimum of 3 characters.
In the event a user name request is rejected we will tell you why in the topic. Also note that successful requests may take a few days to be processed as this topic may not be monitored daily.
Edit: For clarity; I (Mohegan13) generally check this topic every few days, I will not use the ACP on a mobile device so changes will only be done when I am at the PC.
