IMPORTANT: Username locking
« on: 14 September, 2016, 03:51:15 pm »
As of the 23rd September (at around 14:00 BST) we will being removing the ability to change your username / display name, so you have from now until then to choose what you would like to stick with.

Note: Any names that are deemed to be offensive will be changed by us without warning.

I can't decide if it is better to have my real name on show or my cool pretend internet handle.

The problem I've got is I want to change my name to Dr Feeley Good,this is the name I use on xbox and all the other forums I go on,but it is already taken by me !! In 2008 I had my then pc repaired and when I got it back no matter what I did I couldn't get back on the forum as SteveMillar,so I set up a new account as Dr Feeley Good,I only made 7 posts before Wake managed to sort my original account out and I haven't posted under that name since ...is there any way to merge the accounts or just wipe the other one so I can change my name ? If you see the posts I made as Dr Feeley Good it backs up my story....cheers

If someone doesn't remind me to change my name back from my new silly one, before 23rd neither will I!
