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 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.

CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR USERNAME IN AG3?


There should be an option to change username, although I'm not planning on a name change.

To protect your name, just keep it.

Then don't change it. The whole point of the name change feature is to change your username on this site. If you really like your original one and don't want anyone to take it, then don't change it.
CAN YOU CHANGE YOUR USERNAME IN AG3?

Posting in all caps is really annoying to read and is against the Forum rules.
But yes, there will be a feature in AGv3 that will allow you to change your username. Though it won't be at launch. But it's one of the things they have planned.

You won't purchase the thing. . this isn't like yoville or any of that stuff. When you REACH a certain point of reputation or karma then you'll be able to do it, I suppose.

I'm glad. Although I don't want to change my username, if I think of a better one that more suits me, I will use it.

I kinda want a shorter name for me and better so I really hope the thing about Changing Usernames go on AG3.

It will go. Cormyn already said it. Look at the rest of the threads on AG3 to have more information.

Username changes can be both good and bad, good if you get sick of the same moniker and wish to change it (like my live account name), but then you get people who change names several times a month and annoy you.

You'll only be able to change it once a month then you can change to the old one if you want. So you don't have to worry about people changing their usernames constantly.

I don't like this idea and I think it might be to much trouble for its worth. Say if firetail_madness changed his, by purpose or accident, people would sit there at the end of the thirty days just pressing the name change button until someone gets it. And Would the names be posted directly under the name and the posts be moved down? Because I want to know if they are the trolls.
I think its brings too much problems.

.

What exactly do you mean? Do oyu mean on your profile? If so I think so for a month after your change, and what do you mean by trolls? (You can't troll wit your use name if that's what you mean, you'll get peram-banned.)

Well first come first severed, ya snoze ya lose,finders keepers loser weepers,
Lifes isn't fair, and ya don't always get what ya want. Those all seem to cover it.

I don't want my name stolen; even AFTER a month.
 
Well think of it as any other thing you own, if you sell or give away or even though away that object and get a new one , but then go " hmm I liked the old one better" you can't just say I want my old one back, some else owns it now.
Same with the usernames, and making it so you have a &quotatten" on it and no one can use after you change to a new one would make it so people can just make a name and change over and over so that they own all these names that no one can touch! Now that is real trolling! But you'l have a once a month limit. (Cuz of the. Month period thing)

So I think cormyn should stick with the plann they have at the moment.
