I've seen a few vBulliten boards and on some of them, there was a widget that allowed you to change your username. I would like to ask if there would be any possible way to get this in the future? With the widget, you can change your name anytime you want, but you can change when the grace period is for each username change (on one forum, you could change your username every three months). Again, might I ask that we be able to get this in the near future?

It's really unknown, but it's doubtful that name changes would ever come to the public in PC again. You'll just have to stick with the name that you have now, unfortunately. Believe me, you're not the only one that has concerns about this. It's you and a lot of PC that do sort of miss name changes, but the fact of the matter is, the sever is pretty much on fire enough as it is, name changes was pretty much gasoline to the fire, not really making things that much better, really.

.___.; When the h-staff were discussing this, I'm pretty sure every single method was discussed, but in the end, it wouldn't work. Whether the name change removal is really permanent or not is something that's really not known, but for the foreseeable future, I really don't see it making a return.

This pretty much.
I guess the closest thing you can get to a name change, if you want to change it, is to create another account, known as an alt.
As long as you don't pretend to be someone else, you can post under that desired name if it hasn't already been taken.

There used to be username changes but they were removed, I forget why they were but if you wan't to change your name you will have to make a new account.
