New username changing policy [Summer 2013] [closed]

24 votes

This thread is now closed. All usernames are locked in place until September.

I've decided that the old way of users changing their usernames is too much hassle for me. I could set up a system so that mods can change names too, but instead I've come up with a better idea.

Pokemon Name Rater

Every 3 months, I will set the option that allows all users to change their own usernames. Then I will start a thread here on Meta to publicize it. For the next week or so, all users will be able to change their usernames.

They can then post an answer saying they've changed their name if they wish to. Users can also use the question for polls on a new username if they want to. Remember that you must change your username before the deadline though!

After a week, the thread will be closed and no one will be able to change their username for another 3 months. This solves several problems all at once, including everyone knowing exactly when they can change their username next, and taking a load off myself.

The "open period" will be the first week of every season (Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winter), in other words the first week of March, June, September and December.


Since we are almost at June, I have now opened the username changing period for the summer! This thread serves as the username-changing thread for Summer 2013. Simply go to "My Account" and you can change your username!

Deadline: Sunday 9th June

closed with the note: No more changes :)

I am now "Enoch-117", as although my previous Username was cool, it was a pain to Log Into. Its a combination of my Name and the Spartan Number of Halo's Masterchief

Hero of Time
I know it's not a poll but I'd love to see a Flaming Shiftry xD
If anyone steals any of these names I'm going to go bananas on you.
Well the name More to come.... is pretty cool :D

Ok...I would like your opinion on this one.
I have a few ideas:

  • ★Cinccino★ (A small change, but I like it)
  • TailSlapper
  • RapidFire (I got the idea from my old username, Rapidash43856)
  • Skittish Skitty
  • ♪MelodicMeloetta♪

EDIT: Ok, since I was having so much trouble picking from these, I literally pulled names from a hat, and RapidFire won. The other names I might use next time a username change is available. Later.

Please voice your opinion in the comments or, if you want, give other ideas. Thank you.

Okay guys, after months of Triceratops Rex, I decided it was time for a change. And so, Me Gusta! was born. Another reason of why I changed moi username is because of Autocorrect.
I'm done with Autocorrect replacing the "R" with an "S" in Rex. :P

Guys, I'm keeping Poke'slash. NidoSlash is a great name(to me) but I don't feel comfortable with it. Crazy stuff, like Erick leaving and JCM getting banned make me realize that I need the old-but-loved Poke'slash feel.

Nido family, i still love you.
