Some tweaks to the underlying code and the horsepower of our new server setup has allowed us to offer username changes to everyone once again. :D Rejoice.

Check out this thread for more details.


To everyone who is unsure of if the username they want is usable or not, here (http://www.pokecommunity.com/memberlist.php) is the member list. You can search it for the name you want and if nothing comes up then you can have it. Another way is to go to the URL "http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?username=[name]" where [name] is the name you're considering switching to. If nothing loads then the username is available.

Changing username to something entirely new is all fine and dandy but what I was wondering was if we are allowed to just swap usernames with some of our alternative accounts? I mean, I still use my alts sometimes so...it ain't like they're there just because I wanted to save up some username or anything...at least, not all of them. orz

Either way, swapping names with alts mean that we won't be putting our original name at risk of being taken by someone else, right? Since the authority over both the accounts basically lie with the same user. Assuming, that is, the whole thing is allowed. Swapping...because technically it is changing two username and not one lol. Idk. What do ya think, staffies? I like some of my alts a lot so I'd probably change it. But I got a lot of history with this name so I'm not sure....

Either way, I just wanted to ask. :3

If the alt actually belongs to you (like you'd PM an admin from both accounts) then yeah I'm sure it'd be fine. 8) It's an extra step but that's no big deal.

Ahaha, okay. I'm glad to hear that! Means I can totally go wild with experimentation lmfao. Either way, glad to have the system back, audy. Looking forward to PC 2.0 now. :3 Great job, mate.

-goes off to search for his alternate accounts thread to get a list of the 10+ accounts he has to choose from-

They say you'd never return, but I knew, I knew one day you would come back. Now let this .gif accurately express my feelings of your return.
