Name Change Requests (Please Read First Post)

Name Change Requests
When you join SoSZ you pick a username by which you are recognized as you participate in the forum. As you spend time here people become more and more familiar with your username, and eventually even the more unusual of choices becomes what people expect.

In the past we used to allow members to change their username by request. Members then started doing it too frequently—as part of a trend or theme—and we decided to regulate it to monthly intervals. Still, even for the regulars, it became very odd to see familiar faces changing with new usernames. Now, after this grand experiment, it has come to an end.

Changing Your Username
The name under which you signed up when you joined SoSZ is, in most cases, your permanent username. All existing members of SoSZ will be, in most cases, allowed a final name change given an at least acceptable reason (as judged by one of the administrators). Once you get that single username change you will have to keep it for your tenure in the forum unless specific situations apply, so please read over the list below and make sure you think carefully before you request a name-change.

Your username change will be allowed if:
A spelling, grammar, or formatting correction needs to be made. You are being mixed up with another member that has a similar name. An unexpected meaning found behind it makes you uncomfortable. In many cases we will be willing to change it to your real name. When you wish to have a username change please post in this thread and detail your reason for the name change. If an administrator feels it is acceptable your name will be changed and a new post will be made in this thread (so expect that next time you come to log in). If an administrator feels it is unacceptable you will be denied. If questions are in order (which may include actual feedback from the administrator) you might log in later to find that waiting for you rather than an actual name change.

Huh?
I know this might come as a little bit of a surprise to members after we’ve been allowing it for two years now, but the reality of the situation is that we were one of the precious few large forums that ever allowed it in the first place. We’ve just come to the conclusion that it is more disruptive than productive, and also that there are better things the administration team could be doing than hearing complaints about how late a name-change is (or even changing the name in the first place). Remember folks; there is no rush. If you are going to request a final name-change be certain to think it through carefully. Don’t settle for anything short of what seems perfect to you—the sort of name you would want to use to represent yourself in multiple places on the Internet.

After You’ve Changed Your Name
Members may have some trouble recognizing you after you have changed your username, especially if the change was a drastic one. You are strongly encouraged to keep your old avatar, location, signature, and custom user title (if you have one) for a while after your namechange. This will help other members adjust to the change, and will also see to it that less people forget who you are. For example, sometimes I’ll be browsing the forum and I’ll see someone new and won’t realize until a few months pass that they were actually a member that changed their name and profile. Please try to avoid this.

Name Change History
Administrators, always document all name changes in the fields below. The first, ‘Members Who Have Used Permanent Name Changes’, is to receive a listing when a member requests their final namechange and it is approved, not always applicable to new members who join the forum. The second, ‘Most Recent Name Changes’, is to receive an entry on every single name change. The final, ‘All Name Changes’, must also receive a new entry on every name change. Please search it first to avoid creating a new entry for a member that already has one.

Done (final)… thank the heavens.

If this is not allowed, then my apologies.

Done (final).

No Doves Fly Here wrote:Permanent, eh?
Can I have it changed back to "Mi Heng" then?
That's one I know I can live with.

I’ve got a question first. You’ve got a particularly original name now, which is wonderful. ‘Mi Heng’, on the other hand (if it is even available which it might not be) is far from original. We’ve got other members with ‘Mi Heng’ in their username, and odds are additional members with ‘Mi Heng’ in their usernames might crop up. I would suggest deciding on something that is original enough that people will apply your own personality to it, rather than that of a Three Kingdoms personality anyway.

I wish for my name to be reverted back to Li Ruiyue. People recognise me more with my classic username, and I feel as this name is a part of me somewhat, so I'm sure with my decision.
