The reason we have the name changing periods and it's resepctive thread is so that name changes can be controlled and tracked. If we had a thread that auto changed your name (pretty sure that's not possible) or left the name change period open all the time then we would not be able to track users and therefore making it hard to hunt down any trolls that continue to change name.

In conclusion: We have a name changing period for a reason

We did this for a while, with the name changer thread, where users posted requests and Pokemaster changed them manually, but it got too big for PM to do all of them.  So we changed to the name change period.
