What are the limitations on selecting a User Name?

Please read the User Name Guidelines below for more information.

General Information

Please realize that 99% of all potential User Names are perfectly acceptable. Just exercise common sense when determining your choice and I'm sure it will be fine.

Most rejected User Names are submitted by spammers, perverts, or by previously banned members attempting to re-register and spam the forum again, which of course is why I have to list all the examples of what is not acceptable.

The most important requirement is that User Names must actually be pronounceable words. In other words, if you can't actually pronounce the User Name (and I don't mean spell out the letters), then it probably won't qualify.

Do not rely on other current user names as a guideline for what's acceptable. Many current user names in the forum were approved BEFORE these guidelines were developed.

Suggestions for User Names

1. The name of an actor or a character from a movie.
2. The name of a famous athlete or entertainer.
3. The name of a city or a geographical area.
4. A word picked out of the dictionary. (How hard can that be?)

How do I change my User Name?

There are a number of legitimate reasons why you might want to change your User Name, including:

  • You want to have your User Name match your User Name on other Forums.

  • You are concerned that someone may have come to associate your User Name with you personally.

  • The User Name you originally submitted didn't meet the User Name Guidelines and you were given one of those generic "Member #1234" User Names.

  • You've simply identified a more suitable User Name for yourself.

Changing your User Name is easy, and I'll be pleased to accommodate your request, as follows:

  • Review the User Name Guidelines and check that your proposed new User Name conforms with the guidelines.

  • Please use the Contact Us link at the bottom of every page of the Forum to send me a message advising me that you want to change your User Name. All you need to say is "I want to change my User Name".

  • I will use the return address of your email to verify your membership record, and then I will send you the instructions for changing your User Name to your email address in the Forum membership records.

Other Notes:

  • Changing your User Name does not effect your current Membership Status, does not effect your password, and does not effect your current or future Private Messages.

  • Changes in your User Name will be reflected in all your past reports. In other words, all your existing reports and your future reports will display your new User Name.
