Timer for Name Changes?

Recommended Posts

Ori

Just an idea from the top of my head. I was looking at the profile name section and took a look to try and change it, but it looks like I'm still not past the "1 change in 365 days" required time span, though I don't know how much is left until then. Is it possible that sometime there can be a possible feature of a remaining time/set date viewer for the remaining time until it's complete?

The things is, earlier it was much more lax and people were changing their names left right and center. It was confusing for everyone and it got quite out of hand, so that's why we only allow name changes once a year. I'd really not recommend changing that as it's just chaos in the making. What about your name do you want changed?

If you want to know, just PM and admin and we can look up your change history in the ACP, it shows there.

@DZComposer Ah, I see! May be just me being shy from doing that but I feel like that can be a bit of a trouble when there's more users wanting to know about name changes, so I didn't originally do it to avoid inconveniencing you or the others.

@Redeemer I guess I can wait until the timer resets at December (thanks DZ for PMing me my change history), but what I wanted was just my name reduced to the first word-- half because of a "less-is-more"-mentality, half because it's not as much of a hassle for people to look at. plus i don't want "omfg teh furfegs" to become an eyesore for everyone else :p  But I understand it can become a mess when people keep changing names, though I never do change too much or I keep to something easily recognizable at least.

Thanks for the replies though, I suppose they cleared up the doubts I had.

      Could anyone look into this when there's time? I've been having a strange issue lately-- whenever I try to log into the SFO site, I'm asked for the password, and no matter if it's right, it always says it's incorrect. The only way I found to mitigate the issue was to reset the password but as soon as I log back out, the new password doesn't work.
      It's been going on for a few days now, and checking the remember login box doesn't help.
      I appreciate any help.
