Next time think about changing it wisely. Only few people change their name and have a good reason to do so. VIP members are able to change their name every 30 days.

Can somebody help me change my forum name to PINOY, coz my browser plugins keeps on logging automatically and setting the name that is not the same with my game name which I am using now. Would appreciate if anybody can do this for me? I waited 30 days already but mistake happens again due to my browser plugin that am trying to fix, which I am trying to avoid since same scenario will happen again. :(

That length wont be shortened since we dont want people changing their name all the time. We wouldn't know who anyone was without checking through the list of namechanges. I already struggle keeping up with namechanges as it is.

VIPs get to change it slightly more regularly purely as a perk of the VIP packages.

Personally, I think forum name and game name should be the same for everyone, which would make things a whole lot more clearer. But choosing the name is up to you of course.

30 days is actually too fast (however many VIPs dont use that option I think) and 180 days is still very fast. I know forums where 1.5year is the minimum, others where it can only be done by admin, some forums just don't allow it.

Your nick is the only way how we can recognize you and after a nick-change we have to start recognizing you again; which will take time... (e.g., on the server I changed my nick, after 2 months still not everybody recognized me... :P)

Alright, I just need to wait another 30 days more so I can have it corrected.

I agree that remembering name changes is not that easy and could be tiresome to do on daily basis for everybody. Thanks ya'all and happy new year!
