    4. Changing Forum Name



    Woah. You registered with a name you don't like? Eedeeodd.

    Lucky you, there's a solution! You can change your Forum Name.. simply follow this tiny guide.

    Requirements: at least 100 posts and forum account of at least 3 months!

    PM @Yousername with your requested name change.

    Then you'll..
    > Receive a PM back either with *The requested name is already in use* or *Are you sure you want to change your name?*
    > Send a PM back to confirm your name change.
    > Your name will be changed.

    Remember:
    - YOU CAN ONLY CHANGE YOUR NAME ONCE
    - you now have to login with your new name!
    - your old name can be used again by newly registered forum members




    Many thanks to my loyal Forum Mods @Kona and @Mikalu for helping me out with this guide. The guide is basically written by them, so props and much love. Without them it would have taken a while to post. Thank you.
