Default Post here 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 ;)

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

I would like to have my site and forum usernames changed to 'Rin', if at all possible? ;n ;
There is an '07 account on the site that has supposedly never been logged into and an '09 account on the forums with that username that has all but one post.
My email is the same for both site and forum accounts.
Anyway, let me know if this is at all possible, if not, I will suggest another name to have my accounts changed to. Thanks

I think it's safe to say both of those accounts are abandoned, but also noticed that you haven't logged in in a month - just wanted to make sure this is still an active account before giving over such a premium username :)

with the exception of the few questions/notes before this post, everything up to this point has been taken care of. i also removed from old (a year old) comments to requesters about names that didn't work, because at this point the requesters never responded, so i guess no name changes will happen :)

this is the last batch of updates for awhile as i need to focus ont he redesign
