For those who get even more confused, it's the pot calling the kettle black when you're simply adding to the "problem". :P

What have you done?! All the clubs will be a mess now that everyone and their mother's getting a name change :( Still love you for it though!

Oh, and if it's possible, could the old username perhaps automatically be added to the "AKA" list in the drop-down menu that appears when you click on someone's username. I know it'll be listed in statistics on people's profiles, but it's just a hassle to check that for everyone who's gotten a name change. If it'd be too much of a hassle to get to work though, then oh well!

Let me appreciate and give thanks for taking the time to change the usernames. It will take me a while to remember the new username.

Really unexpected surprised here! I'm probably going to move back to my old account with a new name or may request a name switch.

Bless you admins for making this possible. Best news I've read this morning. And now, I must sit and think whether I should take the 90 off my username or go for a different one.

For those who haven't had/never got their named changed before/joined after they were disabled, the Username History thingie section should appear in their stats page on their profile.

Wow, they're back! ♥ That's great news. I know how long some people have been waiting for them and also how frustrating it was to simply not be able to do them. I'm really happy to finally see it all resolved. :D

I have absolutely no intention of changing my username, so this sucks for me. :(

I remember in the past you could just hover your mouse over a username in a post to have past usernames pop up. (now it's whatever in the AKA category) Any intention of bringing that back to prevent confusion?

The aliases/nicknames thing that we have now is nifty, I suppose, but I kind of would like to have this feature to replace it again if username changes are going to be available like before from now on. When you spot a user posting and wonder who it is, past usernames might tell you more than nicknames that the user has put up for themselves :) Some might argue it's the other way around, though.

This is exciting news! I don't know if I'll change my name or not really like mine but I'm happy for the people who now can change their name after a long time of not being able to. :) Though it's confusing telling whose who. >.<

I'm discouraged because my name is taken. :(

But this is certainly good to hear; good to see we can reap the benefits of our server move with bringing something back the members enjoy having (amongst the other good stuff)~

I didn't recognize you with your Username change!

I feel like I'll be seeing this often for the next few days

And yay! I can get rid of those silly numbers I got in my username! Kiss kiss!

So glad you got name changes back! I seriously freaked out when I discovered this today. XD Now my Loki theme will finally be complete. :D It goes so well with my green supporter username too.

And the ultimate plot twist is that I'm not going to change my username this time haha-- it's great to see the option back again though! <3

But where's David when you need someone to reclaim the Name-Change Throne? Hahaha~

DAMN. Thanks. I guess I'll faint for three years and take a change. I cannot express my thanks in any way.

PS - Someone should go around and remove the notice saying we don't offer name changes. I imagine it's quite misleading to new-old members.
