Default How to change your username (read instructions first)

Interested in changing your username? No problem! But, you need to read the instructions and follow them first

Important note: username changes will be accepted for accounts older than 6 months old, except in cases where a user accidentally misspelled their name. Please choose your username carefully when registering, as requesting changes immediately upon joining takes up valuable time that could be spent on site features and other site upgrades.
  1. Search for the NEW username in BOTH the site AND forum. If the name you want is taken in EITHER PLACE, we can't use it.

    ***The exception is potentially if the person hasn't logged in in years and has a blank profile. In this case, mention the situation and we will figure out what to do.

  2. If your site/forum usernames match, you're done - post the name you want and mention you've searched both places, and we'll change it.

  3. If your names don't match AND you don't have the same email account on your site profile, send an email to webmaster [at] anime-planet [dot] com from your site account email with the request, as well as posting in this thread

  4. Names can't have spaces or special characters in them - they must be more than one letter, and a combination of letters and numbers only

  5. You must make the request here in the forum thread, not through the 'contact us' site form

you requested it twice, i denied it twice, and i left up the reason for an entire year in the beginning of the thread in hopes you'd come back and see it i cant remove an account that has content in it and is active.

changed to yorick.

Default Re: Post here to change your username (read instructions first)

I'm instituting a new rule that username changes can only happen once an account exists for 6 months.
registering and them asking me to change the name several days later is a major waste of time and takes away from content creation, features, etc - imagine if the hundreds of people who registered daily asked for this. I'd ask that people are more careful about choosing a username before registering (and also before requesting a change - assume that a name change will be permanent)

edit: please note that there will be exemptions for people who accidentally misspelled their name and would like the problem fixed. also, the rule will be instituted from this point forward - the existing user requests for people who just joined got lucky this time ;)

I have same email on both accounts ^

i would like to change AP and forums aswell :3
I took a look at this, but given the account has a full list and such, I don't feel comfortable deleting it (the only time I do that is when it's a blank/clearly unused account - both of those combined).

If you can think of a variation on Tsugumi that you'd like (a non taken username) let me know

Unfortunately there's already an Arc account (created in 2008). If you have a variation you'd like to use, let me know. In the meantime I changed your forum account to CToth20 to match

Best regards
Ugnius
as a heads up, spaces aren't possible in usernames so yours was added as KawaiiSenpai (no space)

Well I have both the forum and the AP username under ''Role'' but that was me in 2012 so I would like to change it to ''Nori'' (with the capital ''N'')
There's no user on the forum under that name, however there's one AP user ,but this user has been inactive since 2008. Soooo can I take his username?

Because there's a full anime list, I'd prefer not to delete it. If you can choose an unused name I can do so

All requests up to this point are taken care of - please remember to log out and then back in for your session cookies to update (if you want to see the right username on the upper left/etc)

I also deleted some of the posts where I asked for clarification or a new name (because the old was taken) months ago but never got a response
