Thread: Changing Usernames

  1. #1

    Changing Usernames

    Currently Admins are offering one username change per user. This is mainly to allow members to find their "mermaid name" after they have already joined the site, although you do not have to use your one username change for that particular reason.


    You can not change your name to a user's past username unless it is approved with that user. For example, if "Lextran" has their username changed to "Mermaid Alena", another user can not change their name to "Lextran" without permission from "Mermaid Alena". Also obvious fraudulent name changes will not be allowed. For example, if you want your name changed to "MeduSirena" and you're clearly not MeduSirena the request will be denied.

    Also the user must post "User formerly known as insert past username here." into their signature and/or profile for a certian amount of time, depending on how long they have had their former username on the forum. A user only around a few days may only need a few days, a user around for months may need a few weeks. The time needed to have this statement public will be given to you in a comment or PM reply to your request along with verification that your name is changed.

    Please comment below for your username change request.

    Note: 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

    Please change mine to Aquatica. I signed up using face book and did not have chance to pick a name.
    Thank you.

    Oh. I should have probably read this thread before I made a new account. My other one was hard to log into because the screen name was Japanese. Not every keyboard has Japanese. So uh. Could you delete that account then? (Or will the threads produced from it delete too?)

    Freckled, I don't know if you saw before we had to restore to the back up, but I merged your two accounts together. You now have all your old posts, friends lists, pictures, ect of your old account on your new

    I would like to change my username to Mia... if that wouldn't be too short.

    Had some issue getting Mia to stick since it's so short, but I finally got it to! Please place "User previously known as Katraen" in your signature for at least 8 days.

    I would like my username to be Gem Stone. I joined as mermaid Alexandrea, but that's not my mermaid persona so to speak. If you could please change it?
    Hugs, fishes, and mermaid kisses!

    Thanks so much for the name change, I made sure to add the former name in my sig.

    Happy Swimming!

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came."
