    THE GREAT THREAD OF NAMEFUCKERY I mean NAMECHANGING sorry


    let's get this thing going with a bunch of stuff you need to know


    You have three namechanges available when you start out, and only after using those three, you have one namechange every year.
    Do note that these namechanges given once every year do not stack. Regardless of how many years pass after that year, you will still only have one extra namechange available. These namechanges are all still subject to the normal rules & guidelines in this post.

    In practice: you start off with three namechanges available for use whenever you want. After your third namechange, you'll have to wait a year till you can request a fourth, then another year for the fifth, etc. not taking into account namechanges that can be earned through forum contests, adminfucks and whatnot.​


    Before requesting, it is recommended that you search the member list to see if that name hasn't been taken yet.
    It can be buggy, and maybe it won't work as intended depending on how well good old Mbxx is treating his precious servers, but try. It spares us a headache, and it makes sure you don't get a nasty surprise in the form of "well, the name exists already, so you can't have it".​


    If a name is taken, there is still a chance for you to get it.
    If that account has 100 postcount or less, and it has not logged on for 6 months, the name is yours. If the account has over 100 postcount, regardless of the last time they have logged on, the name cannot be given to you.

    If you have trouble finding out when they last logged on (mostly because they might use invisible mode) please ask in this thread and we'll check for you.​


    Please note: the system does not differentiate between normal vowels and inflected ones like A and Ä - it considers "Minato" and "Mînato" the same username for instance. Same goes for uppercase and lowercase - MINATO and minato are the same as far as the system is concerned.


    Spoiler: FAQ
    "I've asked for my namechange at least twelve seconds ago, when do-"
    Just shut up and sit back. We'll get to it when we have time.

    "Can we reserve our old names?"
    Nope.

    "So, do you know when I last changed my name? I need to know for the two year namechange, or, because I don't know how long two months is."
    Yes. I can. But you can, too. You can search this thread with your username as the keyword, and a post where the admin who did your last change should pop up - check the date.

    Can I ask for INFINITE requests since there's no way you guys can keep up with how many times I've changed it, if I wait long enough?
    hahaha




    No. Every namechange is recorded in your usernotes, an invisible section on your profile only staff members can view and post into.

    Can I request namechanges in advance? Like next week I'm-
    NO.

    How can I tell if my name changed?
    Well, because it'll have changed. But if you happen to be offline and log back on only to find the forum telling you that you entered the wrong name/password, then yeah. It means your username changed. Simply enter your requested name (and pray to every deity out there you still remember what you requested) with your old password and you'll be fine.

    I checked and this user http://www.narutoforums.com/member.php?u=33947 doesn't appear to have any posts and hasn't logged on since 2005. Is it still okay?

    i assume you overlooked my post because you're rather busy - i hope you can change it back? or if there's any other way

    i'm not strong enough for the anal jokes that will come with this name so i decided to be indecisive after hours of realizing this was a terrible mistake

    Edit or deleting your earlier post is the preferred way. Making a new post will just get it overlooked.

    also, i don't think there was a way to delete the post as there was a new thread unless ofc i had mod powers - unless i'm missing something

    either way again, thank you

    The key is whether you officially cancel your request before the change is made. :-(

    And the time of the post was more than enough proof in Trinity's case.

    Before yesterday, there was only one username change on record (in your usernotes) which was done on 11-23-2013. This would be the second one. Even if you requested 10 username changes during the last few years, only 3 of them would be honored.

    If you took the e's out of my name, making it Gram, would that be a change, technically? It's pronounced as Gram anyway, so if you think about it, it would just be an Americanization of the word.

    And in America, there is no real change. And these colors don't run, ya know?
