I know Webmaster gave us an option to change your username 9 years ago, but that's a long time ago.

For some of us that have been on the site for so many years (11 years for me), some of our usernames are out-of-date. With the rule against making a 2nd account, I think it would be fair for members to able to change our name once for members older than a certain amount of time. I would propose members of the site for at least 5 years can get their name changed.

I think this would be a fair compromise for both the veteran members and Webmaster from being overwhelmed with name-change requests, but reward veteran posters by updating their username to something more current.

It is against the rules to have two active accounts or to make a second account to circumvent a ban. You can make a new account if the purpose is to change your username. Make the new account and PM me to deactivate your old account.

The only thing with that is I would lose my join date and posts. I would prefer not to lose that.

5 is far too short. 10 would be fine IMO, those people proved they've stuck with the forum over the years.

Assuming you didn't plan ahead already Cool

I always thought there should be one day out of the year where if people want to change their username they can. However, I read on why changing usernames doesn't happen and I understand.
