I realized that in the social rankings, and also in the resources page we are all listed according to our usernames. I know I might be the only one here that ever had a change, so I might be only one affected.  Sad

I'm listed as "Masochist" on those pages (and all the stats and whatnot), and I'm not entirely happy about that, since that's my username - not the name everyone in here knows be by.

If this is really a 99% unaffected-case, I would appriciate getting my username changed so they match. Being known under "Masochist" is just way odd  Tongue

Modifying your username invalidates your password. You should check your inbox.

Not going to happen. If everybody changes their name, nobody will know who's talking. Back in the day we had 8 'banhammers', about 4-6 changed their username, because they could.

I understand it's very tempting, but this is your online identity and just like your RL identity, it's not easily changed.

Full-quoting the previous message typically pisses me off (people, this is not email!) so your chances are pretty much ruined Kiss

I understand, but it really applies to here JGO only. It'll be nice if you can still change your display name but limited, says, 2-3 times per account.

I am with riven on this. If it is a really big deal to you, I am sure that if you ask really nice it could happen  Wink but only once.

When you join a group/forum/game or anything where the identity you are presenting is somewhat important, don't pick names like StumpyStrust. Use your real name or something. Not too hard.
