Now and then, a user wishes to have his or her User/account name changed. This is fine.
The purpose of this thread is for those that want their username's changed to post here with their request - it's just a lot more organised than Private Messages.
Please note, however, that the current Forums Guidelines on this matter are still in effect. For those that need a reminder;
The chances of getting a Handle changed unless it is to a real name is pretty slim, so please do not request it unless there are some unique circumstances involved.we will only change your handle for you if it's from a handle to a real name or at least something that resembles a real name. Why? Because we like seeing real names on our forums. Handles are fun for a time, but sometime's it just hard to respond to someone or take someone seriously who has a handle like "Comic Boy Man From Mars." We encourage the use of real names.
The following formats are the standard name changes;
First name (don't be surprised if name is already taken though).
First name, last name.
First initial, last name.
First name, last initial.
Other combinations/arrangements may be fine, on a case by case basis.

Everyone is permitted one gratuitous name change to whatever you want (pending admin approval). After that, it's your real name or bust. If you wish to speed up the process, acknowledge that you're aware that your request will use up your one free name change in your post.
