    Hey, i tryed to contact moderator, 2 times, but he didnt asnwer. Im not blaming him or anything like that, maybe he got too many thing to do, but i want to change my username on BHW and i dont know where to post it so some other mod/admin can see it and help me. Is there any chance i can change my username from gimlop to Erik. (uppercase E and dot at the end,length 5characters, no space before/after) thanks

    Firstly, only Administrators have the right to change the usernames. Secondly, it's almost impossible to get the username changed until and unless you have a solid reason behind it for why you want to get it changed.

    Yup.

    You need a solid reason to change your name

    Mod's and Admins don't have time for changing your username for childish reasons

    Oh, :/ My reason is really "childish" :D Because i use this username "gimlop" on forums/websites/games that i just want to register and see something, so i dont have to worry about username, but now i know this is not just any forum and i will be using it so long, so i wanted to change my username to my real name....

    First of all, it'd do no good to your cause by ranting about moderators for not replying to your PMs. You could have gone to IRC, as most of mods are available there, but as they say, "common sense is one the rarest things to find these days". I have come across many members who have started a similar thread like yours to get their username changed, and each one of them have got the below mentioned reply by either members or moderators of BHW.

    So, I would suggest you to either be happy with this username or ask a moderator to delete your existing account so that you can start a fresh account with the desired username.

    Cheers :)

    Im not ranting about him, i said that i tryed to contact him before making this thread. Because i already seen comments like "why dont you contact moderator instead of making new thread?" "making new thread? just PM him OMFG..." .... and i said i dont blame him or anything like that...

    Either go on IRC or PM a administrator - I'm sure maybe if you ask very politely they might do it - but don't ask more than once or they may get annoyed.

    Bit harsh, OP specifically said he wasn't moaning, I think he fully appreciates why mods might not reply, so he is just asking here incase there is another approach he doesn't know about.

    Sometimes, folks just wanna post something. I like your polite approach with well-balanced, mannered and appropriate posts.

    Hope your request gets a green signal.

    After so many posts, changing the username would create some problems. Anyway, I like your username -- gimlop! It rhymes with Dunlop, which is one of my favorites! :) So keep it and get used to it.

    Exactly! . . . Mods do not have the ability to change user names.

    That will get him banned. :(


    gimlop, I remember SOAP say you need a solid reason, since you tried twice and had no success I would think you lack such a solid reason.
    Could try IRC tho.

    New account, but i wont have that many posts and other things. Solid reason, i cant imagine any solid reason to change username, really.
    And, for those who think its good name, yea i thought it too :D But its like gaming name or what , i dont like it as that much as i used to ;)

    Actually changing the username is easy as 1-2-3 but if one user gets entertained then several other users would want to have a piece of cake too..if not they complain the administration is biased. Cheers
