    Thumbs up Username "De-Noobification" Request Thread

    I'm going to see how this goes because I've gotten a fair amount of name change requests as well as the other Admins, so rather than try to put up a big wall against them, I'm going to try and organize these requests in a fair and controlled way. If this gets out of hand at any time, I'll move this thread out of public view and we'll go back to no name changes for anyone.

    GUIDELINES/RULES

    1) You have two options:

    You can either ask for numbers/extra symbols to be dropped or letters to be capitalized or lowercased and letter spacing to be added or removed, etc.
    Example

    So let's say your username is jiMm3y_tHe_$k8r69 (Oh geez )

    A legitimate name change request would be to ask for your name to be changed to,

    Jimmy_The_Skater or JimmyTheSkater

    or anything else that follows similar guidelines.
    OR

    If you're at least an Elite(Orange) member, you can ask for your username to be changed to your real name or any type of abbreviated initials. (ex: Jimm, JimmyP, JP, etc) I will only approve this type of change if I feel that you've been here long enough or are recognized by enough people. I WON'T be doing a lot of these because it will confuse forum members, so don't take it personally if I reject your request.

    (Remember, you can always re-register with the name you want if it really matters that much to you.)

    2) You can ONLY ask for 1 name change (I won't be changing your username over and over depending on what you feel like having every other day, I might possibly make exceptions to this rule depending on each situation, we'll see.)

    3) There are gonna be a few wise guys who ask for ridiculous names to waste space in this thread, if you make a request that isn't within the guidelines, I will ignore it completely.

    4) I can accept or reject any requests, no one is entitled to anything and I won't care at all if you get upset with me or if you try to suck up to get your request approved. Chances aren't in your favor if you do anything other than submit a simple post with your request.

    5) Just be mature about your posts and use common sense, this isn't a service for me, it's for you guys. Don't abuse this opportunity for yourself and other members, I'm counting on you guys to make good requests and not to treat this as a joke. Don't let me down and ruin things for everyone else!

    Sorry, gonna have to deny this one for now. I've been rethinking my requirements and I've decided to make it Elite and above. Elite is the highest usergroup and people are almost guaranteed to recognize orange members. Nothing personal.

    This is for name changes, so I don't know if your itallic comment was a request but if it was then it's getting denied. Your name changed is approved as far as dropping the 13. Using all CAPS is an obnoxious change so that part's not happening, sorry.

    ^ You'll sign in with your new name.

    It's gonna be kind of weird having all these new names around, I don't like this

    Most of your usernames are already cool imo

    Maybe, just keep on contributing to the site. As a side note, feedmegrease was a member since '05 and a staff member since '06 before he got his name shortened to fmg.

    Approved. And your name should just change without you having to sign in again. Whenever you sign out and back in from now on though, you'll have to sign in without using the "!" obviously.

    Its R_S's baby, and I'll let him run with it, but seriously people, go easy, think about it! Most of us know you buy your username (with a select few that we know by your real name). If you change it to much, we may just forget the influence you are by not seeing your original name's posting
