    if the minute bhw mods allow name changes
    they will be flooded with name changes.
    there job is hard enough monitoring the forum
    without petty name changes

    Mods don't do name changes, Admins do. I read a similar post where Meathead1234 replied that name changes for purely cosmetic reasons won't be approved - it would have to have a valid reason, like a security issue.

    lets face it the request is kinda lame
    i could understand it if it was a high post
    member or something related to a product
    but this sveinjoe to this svein joe
    1 space makes no difference. ide hate to be
    the mod who said yes in a post then woke up
    the next day to find his inbox full from every newbie
    who thought yeh, i fancy 1 space in my name as well

    Step 1. PM a mod and ask for PayPal address.
    Step 2. Give them $20-$50.
    Step 3. Ask for them to edit your name.

    You're not even JR VIP... I mean, really?

    You have to be a Jr Vip to have your username changed.

    Once you are one you then send an email to [email protected] and that is handled inside the confines of the BHW offices.
