User Name Change Request (TM Issue)

    Hey mods :) I'm currently in the process of selling the majority of my holdings, including palsys.ca and it's associated branding and trademark. My current username (PalSys) will soon become an obvious infringement.
    SEMrush
    I am officially requesting a user name change to ChrisRedman.com. I understand you guys don't typically allow for changes anymore but I'm hoping for a pass due to the TM issue - I've got too many posts, rep and iTrader to start over!

    Thanks in advance, please let me know if I need to send this request somewhere other then this forum!

    Did you see the Policy on Name Changes thread?

    "If you want your username changed, you need to have a *very* good reason to do so.

    Reasons like, "I sold my domain", "I don't like my old one", "I work at a different company", etc. are not good enough reasons IMO."


    Not up to me but wanted to point that out in case you had not seen it.

    Doubt da big man is going to change your username, especially to a domain name that you could sell and later request another change!

    Rob can change his userID (if he's in good mood :p)

    @GuyFromChicago
    TradeMark issue is not a good reason (just wondering) ?

    though I suggest Palsys to choose his name or something as username not a domain name which he might sell some day...

    Agreed, but I thought that a TM issue was considered an applicable reason? Here's hoping :D I take it that Shawn is the only one with the ability to do this, not mods?

    That domain name is my name and personal blog - unless I find another Chris Redman, I doubt I'd have any takers :D

    It's custom, just to provoke a smile :)

    True, I am a DigitalPoint supporter - all the more reason for me to be allowed to change my username! :D

    It's confusing...you should change it.
    Else there will be a dozen threads about "How does banned member post."

    I suggest "Trying desperately to change my username."

    I doubt it. I've never heard of a TM holder going after someone because of profile name on a forum.

    Anyway, the ball is in the admins court. Good luck.
