Hi i have heard a rumor about that you can change your username in ag3. Is this true? And also if it is true won't people steal your username or is that impossible.

The rumor you heard is correct, however, this feature wont be available for a little while. Most likely after the launch of AG3

Ok thanks but will people use the same, or similar username. Just to annoy you.

No, the way we're planning it is that you'll need to have been an active member for a period of time. Then, you'll choose a new username, and if it's available, everyone will see your old username on your profile for the next month. During that month, no other user can pick your old username. Once the month is up, another user can try to use that name instead, but other users will still *their* old name for the next month, etc.

Will you have to have a certain number of karma points to do it? Because then if people would want to change their username they would have to be good citizens of AG. =)

Ghgt99, yes, we'll likely have some strict requirements for it.

@CptObvious: You should really read the entire topic before posting.
I would rather have a system so that after you change your name, people can't take your old one unless you allow it. Like a checkbox that says "Allow users to use your old username".

darkrai097, we've already said several times that your old name will be reserved for at least 30 days if you change it.

Cpt0bviousV2, you can't change your name on AG2, and the feature isn't built in AG3 yet.
