Cosmic Titan (New Admin) 12/25/2004 2:59 PM EST : Ability to Rename User Login

Several users have asked me if they could change their login name.  My answer is no, not without deleting their old account and creating an entirely new account.  They would lose all activity points, Raid points, etc.  Would it be possible to give them the option if simply changing their login with a RENAME command?  If so, it would be nice oif an email was sent to any guilds they are a member of so Admins could make a note of it.

Please allow this feature!!!  We've had some guild members change the name of their main characters in the guild and I've been resigned to adding “(aka NewNameHere)” to their title.

Yes, I've been thinking about this recently too, especially since our guild has been around over 3 years now and hardly any of us actually use the name we used to go by.  And for me, I'm fed up of those squiggles in my name, I'd love to change it

What I really want is the ability to designate one of my guild associated characters as my username for that guild -- only. I would still login using my GuildPortal (global) username but any posts I make or other activities use my guild (local) username. E-mail can also be sent to my guild username, as an alias, and as far as everyone knows that is my username since they see no other unless they review my profile. The local username would be what I consider my main character for that guild.

Or maybe even have a flag in their character settings where they could flag a character as Post As.  The problem would be if they have characters in multiple guilds.  In that case it would be nice if the system's logic was able to look at the entire list and find the character in the list which is a member of that particular site's guild/game and use it.  Members would check each main for each guild/game and when on that guild/game sites, would always post as their main.

See Aaron, even under my WoW login (which could have been avoided creating if we had the above ) I try to keep ya busy...  lol
