    How to change your username

    Whereas in the past name changes were performed manually by the admins, we have now installed a new feature to give users the ability to change their username themselves.


    Rules:
    Users may only change their name once.
    After a name change, please add "Formerly known as [old username]" to your signature.

    How to change your username:
    Go to Settings > Edit Profile > Edit Username


    To check if a name is taken, you can see a searchable list of all members if you click on forum > community > member list, or go to http://mernetwork.com/index/memberlist.php

    If you have any questions or comments, or to report an error with the system, please post it in this thread.

    Hi apologies if it's not great to dig up this old thread but I just used the feature to change my username. Is it alright if a name happens to be similar to someone else's? It seems there's a whole heck of a lot of really good names these days that someone out there is already using much like how many folks have the same first name. I apologise (profusely!) for having changed mine before realising there was a rule, though tried to make it noticeably different to the other Alaria. I think I'm in a pretty different area to the other mer far as I know too, if that helps? Should I leave her a private message? Just want to make sure I don't step on anyone's fins!

    Hello, I was just wondering why the limit for how often you can change your username is 10,000 days? That seems like quite a while, and since last year (when I changed my username to what it is now), I've ditched the username "Saph" on every website except for this one

    Itís supposed to be that you can only change it once, and the 10,000 day limit covers that fairly well, since I canít imagine someone sitting on a name for 27 years.

    Lies a glimmering shadow, the wild mermaid;

    Will you stay as you are, or be delivered to the waves?

    That makes sense...I feel like I should've realized that. Anyways, thank you!

    From what I seen, the only fix is to log into the full site and change it in settings.
