    Question about usernames.

    I'd like to know what the policy is to namechanging in terms of, if I change my name, will my old name only be available to me or will it be open for anyone to use after my change?

    I'm asking this because I'm in the mood to change but I'm unsure if I'm going to be happy with the change under a period of time.

    Its going to save your first and second and ect. name so you can change your name back when ever you want.

    They can jack your name, like intellectual/ryzz did with Ecstacy's name.
    Then he got thrown into CS for jacking a name.

    So, name-jacking is frowned upon then?
    So I don't have to worry that much about someone stealing my name?

    I think you have to re-phrase this, "grand id".
    Because I don't understand what you mean.

    Ah. I see.
    Thanks for the information guys, I'll keep the thread here and unlocked until I get some more information.
    I'd just like to make sure before I do anything.

    also, I've said it several times and I can't be the only one, the donator color of barf-yellow is horrendous.
