Ah, maybe that's why one prominent member got to change her name.From what I understand most name changes aren't allowed but I think I saw something about PM'ing Drew and if it's a good reason he might allow it. Course the problem becomes what does he consider a "good reason".
Wow, really? I am prominent?? :eek I had no idea.Ah, maybe that's why one prominent member got to change her name.
By prominent, I meant long-term and active.Wow, really? I am prominent?? :eek I had no idea.
No animosity...I don't even know you. It was a legitimate question.I am really sorry that there if there is some kind of animosity about this. Precisely what Drew brought up in his response. See "alternatives to banning" thread.
I could care less if you do, just want the same rights for everyone else. I'm sure you had a *really* good reason.While I may have opened the door for limited name changing, I can assure you I have no special "in" with anyone of the management team.
Actually, no, that's not the case. *sigh* Forget I even brought it up.Some of those name changes you are referring to happened before it was prohibited. Nubly is an example of that - the veterans here know his original name.
You could? :bI could care less
You cared enough to post about it, and I am sorry if you feel that way. I simply stated my case that is all. If you want to plead you case the way I did, feel free to do so. I dont feel compelled to share my case with all of SAS. I have shared with Drew and a few others. I really did have a good *really* good reason. I have never changed my name in five years. And I am still not changing my *identity*. Post count and all remains the same.if you do, just want the same rights for everyone else. I'm sure you had a *really* good reason.
This was exactly my concern with allowing name changes in certain circumstances. I even expressed this in the other thread:I could care less if you do, just want the same rights for everyone else. I'm sure you had a *really* good reason.
The reason the individual you are talking about changed her name is between me and her and anyone else she wants to tell.I understand where you are coming from.
The issue with this is then the policy becomes quite subjective in terms of what names changes are allowed and what aren't. The more subjectivity, the more complaints.
Here's what I'm going to do, though. I'll update the thread and let people know that the majority of name changes will not be allowed, but if one feels they have a good reason for the name change they can PM me and I'll consider it.
