Once you change, you have to wait about 6 months before you're able to change it again.

Given the above, do you still want to change your name?
You can get your old name back, yeah, but like Tenshi said, there's about a 6-month wait between name changes.

Haven't poked around this thread in awhile is this a newly implemented rule?
Have you tried turn it off and on again?

No, it's not a new rule. It's been a sort of unofficial rule that most of the community abides by for a long time now, simply because it'd be a pain for most people to try to remember who everyone is if people, say, want to change their name every couple of days or hours or something.

The exception is holiday-based name changes, though, 'cause those are for fun and all.

Why yes, yes I am. Or else I would have been bitched at about it sometime in the last three months.

You're a really bad example, BL. You've changed names faster than my sister takes a thousand photos, which ain't an easy thing to beat.

I've changed it only four times in three months. I'm not an example of anything either in this except Moderators can change it as wanted. It's as easy as a avatar change.

Changing your name? I'd agree with that if everyone could do it.

Bad example of not following the own rules you guys come up with for such things. Mods should be an example of how to behave but you apparently don't give a rat's ass.
And it's not a big surprise, not the first mod to not give a rat's ass.

It's not a rule, it doesn't even apply to moderators in the first place either. It'd be like using basketball rules for soccer. Can't be a bad example of something that doesn't exist.

The reason Hiroko gave for it, I have no idea if it is the reason why there is a six month wait limit, I thought it was because moderators didn't want to be hassled all the time to change names every week or so.

and you are right, I don't give a rat's ass.

I don't even give a fuck, surprisingly even with this conversation to show otherwise.

And this is the kind of mod that has been bitched about for years and that somehow always comes back. Carry on then.

i think your last name before changing to guardian was king kai kahoona or something budokai tenkaichi, had some dbz character as an avatar

i honestly never had problems with anyone changing names because i'll look into their profiles sooner or later and i'll remember

i would rather that everyone have some courtesy at least when doing these things, however

Done!
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Not to put you guys out or anything, but could I have the 666 wiped from my name please? I'm a bit fed up of looking like a 10 year old trying to be cool.

Thanks.
