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.

you do have a point, but say a guy with a very wanted name quites ex: bob or john or something like that?


No two users can have the exact same username, and the usernames of banned users cannot be used.

@GhostOfMatrix:
I wrote that sentence because I read cormyn's sentence. He said that.

We haven't decided on the parameters needed, but it will probably require that you've been a member for a period of time and have a good reputation.

No. You keep the same account, but you will be able to change your username provided you meet the requirements.

Ok, but I think there are a lot of people who want to change their username. I'm one of them.

Not everyone has to use the username change feature, but I think it should be there with controls to prevent spam and minimize confusion.

Of course, but I think it's very useful if you don't like the name you chose.

I didn't say no to the feature. In fact, I say yes to the feature.

I agree with you, and I understood that you like this idea, but I was just saying that is useful. I think there should be a message when these updates will come out.

It's been like this for a while during private beta, but since the release of public beta, the email notifications have been discontinued.

Imagine this: A system that can generate emails to over 1.6 million users. Most of them being ghost accounts. It's impossible.

Emails would be nice, rather than stumbling upon it through looking around the site, that way you actually know when the features come out and what you can do.

No it isn't, many sites use it, such as Facebook, PhotoBucket, Formspring, Kongregate, etc. and they have more users than AG.
