    Option to change nick in forums

    I know it's been requested a thousand times.

    For real, A THOUSAND.

    But please, I've been playing 7 years and I have the same nick "LegolasArchersKingdom" that I randomly created.

    What's so hard about making a feature to change the nick? There's a feature to change the password, I know it's different but it's needed!

    Put a limit of only 1 change per year or something.

    Before such a feature comes, you can just ask Cordovan to change it. I think there are people who have done it.

    If there is going to be a name change feature, I hope people can see a user's former names as well.

    I agree wholeheartedly with this.

    I would love to change my nickname on the forums to "Elleby" to reflect my main's name. It is currently set to the same name as the first toon I created.

    Realistically, allowing everyone to just change their name over and over in a system that prevents duplicates poses all sorts of issues, not even accounting for possible trolling and moderation headaches.

    However, as long as your account is in regular state and the name you want isn't taken, it's a relatively trivial matter for me to change your name. Takes about a minute to do. Just PM me with a couple of options in order of preference and I'll get it done.

    What is nickname? You mean forum name? As in mine is LabadalofDorlomin?

    Yes

    It looks confusing because the prior thread contributors have had their Nicknames changed now. All their prior posts now have the new nickname.

    I'd imagine that many a Legolas themed in-game character name has either earned Turbine/SSG a fair bit of dosh from a name change or had them retiring that char. What initially sounds like a great idea when you first start playing looses it's appeal when you see hundreds online who had the same stroke of genius. I rarely see any about these days.
    Treat others as you do your best pictures, and place them under a spot light

    Thanks for the info... I understand now...

    I actually don't agree with changing forum names... it's unfortunate in some cases but could be abused by others who want to hide from their past misdemeanour, inter alia.

    Unless they have a permanent sidebar which states "formerly known as Legaloolas" etc
