PostSubject: Username Problem. [Please read.]   Tue May 01, 2012 9:06 pm

Hey guys, so about a month ago or so we got the option to change our own usernames, but in my opinion it's just not working. Yes, it's great and all, but some users are abusing this feature. Seriously, name changes every 2 days. Literally. Also, they're too lazy to post in the thread, causing people to actually have to look through really old posts. It's becoming a problem, or it already is.

So I'm going to talk to the admins about a solution, but for the time being, I'm going to put 2 new rules in place:

1. You MUST post in the "changed usernames" thread.
2. You can only change your username once a month
. (I will be keeping track. Which is why you need to post it. Also, if any of us finds out you did it and didn't tell anyone, you could lose the privilege for a bit. Maybe.)


Thanks guys. I'm sorry it's strict, but something needs to be done.

Yes I agree,
I also noticed someone is posing as me, and stole my avatar and name.

I agree, Abbey. So I am into this post. It really was confusing with lots of username and not knowing who they used to be.

Wow. If somebody is using the ability to change their name so they can pretend to be another user, that's just ridiculous. I wouldn't even expect somebody to get that extreme with abusing the username changing. The only problem with that person's plan is that they are a terrible troll, so nobody would believe they're you. c;

I like this. It can help with organization, and honestly it is very annoying when people change their name hourly and then don't even post it. :>

OH GOSH. Thanks for posting this. I came back after the feature was added about the changing username thing. I had no idea there was a thread. Thank you! But this is also a really good idea. I hate it when people change their username and I have no idea.

I have a suggestion abbeybby.
Why don't we just be required to put it at the top of our siggy in normal font and size if we don't put it in the thread.

and I wasn't too lazy to put it there.
I wasn't coming on very often so i kinda just wanted to not be bby for a while.
but that didnt work. so now im bbz. c:

But the thread isn't the only problem. Abbey's explaining that people are changing their usernames far too often, and some people aren't posting in the thread. The constant name-changes are confusing, and when users won't say who they are, it's just even more confusing. In fact, to save me the time of explaining this, I'll show you the pm I sent Abbey about this:

"I feel as if there are people who aren't taking this thing seriously. A username should be something you stick with. I mean, nobody has to have the exact same username on a website forever, but it's nice if people keep their username for some time. That way, people know who they are referring to, and there will be less confusion. What makes this even worse is the fact that when people are changing their names this often, they are too lazy to post in the username-changing thread, so I can no longer rely on the thread to help me figure out who everyone is."

That's only a portion of it, but I think that's the most important part of my message. So no, all of the problems won't be solved if we just have people posting in the thread. I'm not saying that nobody should post in the thread, but I'm saying that we also have to put a stop to people abusing this ability that we've had for about month (and by "abusing", I mean name changes every week). I would like people to be treating their ability to change their usernames in a responsible way.
