    As most of you will have noticed there have been a few user name changes recently. To be honest changing user names is something that i tried to avoid from day 1 because i'm pretty sure that in doing so i'm making a rod for my own back. Doing it for one may well just open the flood gates buy hey ho, one rule for all as they say.
    So those who have requested user name changes, I will try to get them done today ( i'm GMT +8 hrs at the mo though) Either way there are going to have to be some boundaries, anyone who has made a genuine mistake signing up, then fine i will change them no problem, but long term members are going to have to have a note in there title saying who they formally were. Changing the name of a regular poster could well cause confusion so a few months stating who you used to be seems a fair compromise to me.

    Let me know what you think

    I see this thread was bumped for the purpose of spam.

    But back on topic, I think it would be great if this service could be offered to those who donate. It may also encourage people to donate too.

    Could i have mine changed please.

    From ' PaulWilde ' to

    ' Badger '

    badger is taken by this person:

    Land Rover Zone - View Profile: badger

    The last time this person was active was in '14th-November-2005 21:43' which means they're not quite a regular user ( 1 post )

    Thanks

    Badger is also in my title atm.

    Nah, I just think that 'The_' is pretty pointless.
