The admins could just enable the feature that allows the users themselves to change their name and "problem" be gone.

When a forum member request a name change it's a simple request, i did it too once with no success, i even reported the request to bring it to admin attention, but no reaction. It's bad administration to just let a request go by unnoticed, the least they could do is give a yes or no. Or even better, make a sticky somewhere that namechanges are not possible at these forums. It's not rocket science to change a user name, hell give me admin access and i'll handle all future request

I don't know who you speak about when you refer to anger, i am totaly relaxed. There are just some natural admin obligations to fullfill when you decide to run a public forum. If the workload gets to big you should consider expanding the admin or moderator staff, i believe there would be plenty of people here who are able and willing to give a hand with the basics since it's obvious that the admins are putting their efforts towards something else.

It's not "anger" related, it's just a debate on a public debating forum.

That would suck. It would make it hard to keep track of who people are. Also, sometimes the only thing you can remember when searching for stuff is who-wrote-what. If the author changes his name, you dont even have that as a search criteria.

All boards that allow name changes have one or more turds hanging around who change their name every now and then to make people forget about the crap they have written.

yes yes, like all topics there are for and against, but i suggested it as a workarround. I think i remember a hack for vBulletin that made the admin aprove a users namechange before it would take effect, also the possibility of it to only affect new posts made after the namechange.

Thanks for changing ...

!! Thx to all the ppl what helped with postings to get this finaly !!

and SRY for this many work whats about less than 1 min to change any name.

Saw on many Forums ppl wantet to change their name AND wasnt anywhere
a HELL discussion about it till i saw it on this Side.

Possibly its something against me of the Admins ?!?

HOPE THIS WILL STOP THIS SILLY DISCUSSION ...
next time ( well wont be FOR ME a next time anyways ) a simple change or a NO would be enough aswell.
Good way to get some ppl out of Forums if you handle others like you did at me

Thank you and GreetZ

Something as little as a name change took over a month to make happen.
Plus the 3 or 4 users with opinions might have helped some.
And it's funny, but it's the little things in life that makes us happy.
