    Another dumb question for the people who made this possible: Can it change while i'm still at the site, or do i need to log out for the change to happen?

    You will stay logged in once the change happens, however whatever name you change to will be the new name you login with so you'll have to set your browser to remember a password with that name. Hope this helps! :)

          It will happen when the admins get around to it. They're busy folks.

          Not sure if you're doing an account name swap (ie. switching your name with an alt's name) but if you are, that does take longer than simply changing their name. So yeah, there's that.

            Guys, I just wanted to say thank you so much for bringing this back! ^^ Now people won't have to start new accounts because they messed up their username.

            Thanks, moddies! :D

            Will this new privilege stay or disappear, tho? :P

            I don't think it'll disappear. No reason why it would. Apart from, perhaps, audy, wentos, mork, sylphiel and jake getting fed up of doing name changes all the time. :p

            also, my new username is based on this guy



            Such a BAMF.



            BAMF even as a kid. BAMFassery personified. <3 Thxadminzz!!!!

            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?
            OR

            ..you could simply visit that person's profile and click their statistics tab ad see their username history.

              It says you get to change every 4 months :)

              I am looking forwards to a new name!

              This is absolutely amazing. Thank you very much for this opportunity I never got to experience. I'm sure many others feel the same way, so we are all very much obliged and happy to hear about this change welcomed back. Happy holidays, Ausaudriel, and all of the staff team. :)

                I decided to check this place out after two months of being away...

                And the very first thing I noticed was this thread.

                For someone who HATED this username, I'm so happy this was done. Thank you thank you THANKYOU!!!

                    This is just an announcement thread. You can change your username over here. Make sure to read the first post properly!

                        To avoid messing up the main thread I'll just post this here-

                        To everyone who is unsure of if the username they want is usable or not, here 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.

                        Keep in mind that members who are banned will not appear on the member list, which is where the second method Razor Leaf mentioned will come in handy. I'm sure that usernames occupied by permanently banned users will be considered as available also, always a good idea to PM an Administrator about it as usual, however.

                        Oh god now I'm going to get all confused here as well this is it it's starting what is happening everybody is changing I don't know what the world is anymore

                        I will never have need to change my lovely username. Ever.

                        But I suppose the option is nice, even if it means I'll get totally confused whenever someone changes their username.

                        For three years, it has haunted me.

                        That one mistake, that pointless tidbit.

                        The numbers, added as a safety measure as I was blissfully unaware that my username wasn't taken.

                        Finally, I can be rid of the 123!
