Proper way to request a Username Change?

Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by justtara, Jun 27, 2006.

    Can somebody tell me what the proper/correct way to request a username change on the DP forum is? I have searched the forum and the faqs and can't seem to find how to go about requesting a name change?

    Some of the posts say not to bother contacting an admin by PM or email. It says in some of the posts just to post in this forum. I don't want to post the exact circumstance in public as to why I want to to change it.

    If somebody can let me know the best way to go about this that would be great!

    Thanks

    If I don't need to post the details and somebody can just change the name the username I would like change it to is "justtara"

    Thanks

    This is the only way to get the username changed. You can PM as well, but since Admin (Shawn) can only change the username, chances are your PM might go unread as he recives a lot of PMs everyday.

    I wish it was part of the process though that they be required to put their old user name in their signature for a few months..There are people here with 1000's of posts and I have no idea who they are :confused:

    I think it's a good reason by itself, I'd PM him just because he asks not to ;)

    Did your user name used to be EGS?

    (I told you people it gets confusing!)

    Thats true. Maybe their old username could be included in their user title for a couple of months or some specific page/thread displaying members old and new username side by side.

    Offtopic: Do you want me to send that shoemoney shirt to you now, or should i send it when there is next DP meet? Let me know. If you want me to send it to you, please PM me your address and i would dispatch it tomorrow. Also, I am uploading the complete video right now as well. Would be done by tonite.
