J2O Name Change Requests (Read first post!)

From now on, we allow people to change their user name on J2O. The rules for this are a bit more strict than for changing your JCF user name:
  • You can only have your user name changed once, and only when you have a valid reason to do so.
  • Valid reasons include:
    • Removing clan tags
    • Removing fancy ASCII and capitalization (VGT -> Vegito)
    • If your new nickname is the one you have been generally known as in the community, for a good while, and it is sufficiently different from your current nickname.
    • If your reason for wanting to have your name change is not included in here, you can still request a change, but of course you need to convince the admins that your request is valid.
  • If a user with your desired new username already exists, your name can not be changed. Whether that other user is active or not does not make a difference.
  • Admins reserve the right to deny a name change request without giving a reason.
  • To have your name changed, post your current J2O user name, the name you want it to be changed to, and a good reason in this thread.
  • Name changes will be recorded in the user's profile. This can not be removed from your profile.
Only replies concerning name change requests by people who want their name changed OR J2O admins replying to those requests are allowed in this thread. Other replies will be deleted and their authors will receive a subwarning.

Addendum: Note that we allow this now after long discussion etc. It has not been triggered by any people asking about it recently (gerard24423213). Just to clear things up.
