Horrible idea. I think it should be a privilege given out once a year.

That would be a good idea. But it is your account. And is too slim chances to get picked to change your name.

If you want to change your name back, you (a) have to wait 30 days, and (b) hope nobody takes your old name after the 30-day period and before you log back in to change it back.

Couldn't you like, give us 30 days in which we could change back instead of making us wait 30 days and risk losing our name?

Hmmph.

I know of a lot of forum sites who will have a username, for the purpose of keeping tabs on the users and logging in that they cannot change, but they also have a display name that they can change whenever they want. All the display name is is what displays on the forum. Problem solved

The display name would be all that shows. the username would be for moderation/ administrative purposes.

You should make it so that you can make it so people can't make insulting names. Or try to insult people with their name, (Yes I know my name might be offending, but i was younger then. And I wish to change it.) Like blahblahsucks or blahblah is stupid. Just a suggestion. Hope it helps. :)

We've already discussed a "display" name versus actual account identifier. Since we need something "unique" about you, we don't want to just use some lame number, or expose your Email address, etc., so we decided AGAINST a "display" setup, and just let users change their actual username.

This is already in the rules of the site. Users that do so can be banned.

I don't want my name stolen; even AFTER a month.
