When I first came to this site, I was tired and made my screen name be my actual first name. ^,^'

Ever since that time, my regret for that has been growing and I was wondering if I could possibly have my screen name changed?

Each approved member gets to change their screen name one time. Send a PM to any staff member (Goddess, God, Siren, Satyr or Sidhe) with what you want your name changed to.

Just remember that this is a one-time-ever deal - the new name is the one you'll have to use from then on out, no going back, no changing it to something else later.

Did they change this? I distinctly remember Halloween being a time you could change your name as you saw fit, but maybe that's only at that time of the year.

Come to me, just in a dream. Come on and rescue me.
Yes, I know. I can be wrong. Maybe I'm too headstrong.

Thanks for the help.

I'll send a PM right away.  :-)

They did. Now users only get the one change & that's permanent & irrevocable.

This actually was the reason. It started to get really, really confusing.

That said, donating members do get one additional name change.

Thanks for asking this, I had assumed I would be able to change my username at some point but after being accepted thought I was stuck with it for good!

Fingers crossed, I'll be Amor soon  :-)

I might just do that. I realized Ark Noah isn't suitable for a username ...

How come?

It has an ' ancient ' feel ... too ancient.  :-\

There is a lot to be said for the mystical feel a so-call ancient name can conjure.

Oniya

Of course, the important thing is how comfortable you feel with the name.  So if you want to make a change, just follow the instructions in the second post.

Thank you. I will , once I find a suitable one.

Formless

I tried to look for the answer but I couldn't . So here's a question.

If I change my name. Does it overrites anything associated with the old name? I know in-post material are not affected. But does it also change my name in my buddy's PM list? Or is it from the instance the name is changed and onward?

I'm sorry If that may not made much sense.

Oniya

All previous posts that you have made, and any links that connect to your old name/profile will be connected to the new name.

Aha I see.

Thank you Lady Oniya. :)

The only portion that would remain Ark Noah is your original login name.

She led me to safety in a forest of green, and showed my stale eyes some sights never seen.

and touches my dreams. - Harry Chapin

Really?

Ok that was critical. I should keep it in mind.

Also keep in mind that (if you're anal) you'll want to go back and edit posts that you've done such as an A&A or O&O and any stories that you're involved in would still have your original name in the subject, etc.

People can also still do a Member search for you by both your new name and your old name as well. It's also handy to shoot a PM to your friends/mentors (just saying! lol) letting them know of the name change too.

Formless

Wow , search me with both names?

I guess there's more to it than just a new name tag huh ... That's really interesting.

You called?

Actually, I have a question. My name used to be Inkedu, but I changed it before the one change limit. Do I still get a freebee?
If you're searching the lines for a point, well you've probably missed it; there was never anything there in the first place.

Do you want it changed back to Inkedu?

Send any staffer a request for the change

No, I just wanted to see if I had the option, I like my name. Thanks for the reply. ^_^

Hope you're doing well, Cecilia.
