On requesting a name change

You may request a name change in the following instances:

  • If you want your username to match your username on another site (such as HPFF, LiveJournal, FanFiction.net etc etc),
  • For safety reasons, e.g., if you feel like you are being harassed or stalked.
  • Your current username contains a spelling error
  • You've had your username for more than two years.

If you want a name change, please put the reason why in your initial PM. This will save us time!

Adding something here, because right now my inbox is being flooded with messages going "I had my name for that many years...." or "I'd like mine to match my HPFF..." and almost all these messages end "can I get a name change?"

I made this announcement to REDUCE the clutter in my inbox concerning name changes - if you comply with any of these rules, you do not need to ask on top of this announcement if you can have a name change. Just send me a message with for example "I want to change my name to that of my HPFF account, which is suchandsuch"

Thank you.

Just think, if it gets annoying enough, we could just stop offering them altogether. That wouldn't be at all hard, and would give the admins more time to do more productive work for the site, like promotions, for instance.

Name changes are at the bottom of the priority list, so please only ask if it's actually important.

Just adding something to this quickly. If you use the first rule as a reason for your name change:

1. You want it to match your name over on HPFF

Could you please also give a link to your HPFF account in the PM so we can verify the name you want it changed to is, in fact, the name you have on HPFF?
We've had people PMing us with this reason before, where we later found out the names didn't match, or they didn't even have an account on HPFF.

Thanks.
