You Want to Change Your Username?

That option is an available feature in this board design. I do not like it because its very easy to not know who anyone is anymore, and users end up losing their identity. I am a member on another forum that uses that feature and it becomes very confusing.

Could you drop the minimum length of 3 characters and change mine to just plain X? I never get why that requirement is defaulted to 3. :unsure: I always turned it off on my boards.

Hi, can you change my name to ajua?

I can't remember but when I first registered in this board I did it as ajua but somehow I loose the password and/or email and re-registered as elajua.

Thanks!

Nois3 to Noise?

I had to use the "3" instead of an "e" because someone stole the name "Noise" first. Made me sad.

I received the request to change my nickname from win2000 to blackwingcat ( it well-known ), and I think so, too.

Can I change it ?

We don't generally delete accounts, as this can mess with the backend database. Please PM if there's a specific reason.

Any chance my request can be fulfilled?

What possible reason could there be to have a 3 character minimum?

We tend to stick with default settings to minimize problems with addons and upgrades.

Correct - we have in the past heavily optimized and modified our installation of IPB to suit our needs, and as such we just don't deviate from the defaults if and when possible for the sake of compatibility with as much of the default IPB codebase as we can - this eases support issues and also makes it easier to make changes as necessary (when you know your baseline, it's easier to deviate from it when necessary). Unless xper changes his mind on this, the answer is going to be no.
