namechange maddness...

basically it's a great idea
if you had a name like "member123xy" you have the chance to change it to something else what you like (at least the name is free)
the whole thing without moving the all the uploads to the new account or loosing badges, views and other statistic things

actually it's just annoying :|
i don't know how much messges i deleted because this and that user changed his name to
and to destroy your worries
i will not change my name ;)
there is no reason for it
if i search in google for my name
*shu* :faint: it's just heavy ^^;
i also prefere to not do this
maybe you will regret that action

by the way
when a member changed the name, he will get a little hint over his name with "formerly"
do me a favor
if you see a member called "the artist formerly prince"
give me a hint
i need a screenshot of that :D

It ain't free. You still have to be premium to be able to change your name :|

And once you made something like a paper model or a draw people look for that name like in your case with your design's or mine with the cubes ! if you keep changing your name people tend not to look any more .. :(

yeah, for me... it's rather confusing... like "who the hell is this guy?"
I don't always check my messages though =p
so I don't even know if they changed their name... like a total stranger O.o

i also think it could be very confusing when people start changing the name to something similar that allready exist (fakeaccounts and stuff)
anyway, i don't really care :D
i will stay here :aww:
