Subject description: You'll no longer be able to change your name at your own.

That's it. In less than 24 hours, I'll disable the ability to change name on your own. And also, I will not change anyone's name, unless there is an extremely good reason behind it.

So, if you changed your name inumerous times, pick your original name now or it will be too late.

I don't wanna see people hiding behind other names to not face the consequences of their own stupid actions.

This not a consequence of one topic or the last 24 hours. It is actually a measure against something horrible that has been happening at this place for ages.

Well to be honest some of the topics that have happened recently would have embarassed me, if I were Banshee. Stuff like that doesnt give a good image of the forum... especially to non-regular visitors, new users or guests.

i'm satisfied with this solution as it became really confusing with some using 2-5 different names and changing them continuously.

I changed my name every now and then cause I get bored really easily, but Aro is the best simply cause it's what I'm called everywhere (real-life and all).

That actually sounds rather nice considering how annoying it is for people to constantly change their names. The internet is impersonal enough without this nonsense going on.

This is something I have thought of as a flaw since post counts have been disabled.

During the fun of the team virus, the only way of identifying people was by their post counts, once that was disabled if another team virus type of thing was started, there would be absolute chaos:P I dont see anything that has happened in the last 24 hours being as bad as that.

The majority of forums I visit don't allow name changes, it's not really that big a deal.

And like I said to you earlier, PPM is actually the only forum I know that supported name changes.

Imagine people changing their names every day in real life. It would be utter chaos. Therefore I wholeheartedly support this idea. I've already been majorly confused by oldies popping up whose name I cannot link to anybody, just because I wasn't there to witness the change.

I know the feeling.
I saw "Phobia" and was only alerted to it being The red haired birmingham dweller by the little bit of his sig that said "Formerly known as ARO"

Really this is a good change IMO, as I don't really see a need to change your own name, and it was also way chaotic.
"Phobia" did disturb me (I asked to myself new staff on TI?, and a new member?, WTH?), when I saw the new topic at TI, however I realized it was ARO when I saw that most topics in TI were posted by Phobia Laughing.

But that's stupid, people abuse the ability to change their nick. If anything, it should be restricted to 2 times a year, or even be admin controlled, ergo, ask the admin to change the nick for you on these "special occasions".

It was the same name, easily readable to those who didn't use their neurons to make pie... It was because idiots found google... Always leads to disaster. I changed it back anyways and the point is it's the same name just looking slightly different.
