    True; but only within this announcement. I actually had this slightly older post on the matter in mind. Supposedly the new software is (or was) set up so you can change it yourself every 90 days. Going by the rest of that topic, this is something apparently a fair few of us will probably be plenty happy to have, even if we only use it once ever.

    Excited to finally be able to shake off this username, hopefully. Also hoping the purple theme will carry over to the new forum software but I can live without it.

    I'd only want a "neo oldbie" tag if it cut off at the SWS2B/Retro merge solely to make me feel special :v:

    Will this improve the mobile experience?

    Also, Rusted Copper is the best skin ever and I could never live with a different one.

    My theory is that after a while, a terrible username becomes cool and ironic and you get more respect for keeping it.

    It's been 17 years - I must be close... right?

    Was your username non-ironic at one point?

    Oh boy, about time. Gonna miss IPB, but this was long overdue anyway. Gonna take a while to get used to a new layout after seeing the same one since 2007 :v:

    On the flip side, I honestly wish I had come up with actual username and not just... my name.

    Same. If we do get the ability to change our names, even if it's just once, you bet your ass I'm doing it. I've already got another handle that I'm using semi-professionally in other communities, the ability to unify these things would be nice.

    I'm honestly surprised my username didn't get me banned right out the bat.

    Then again, I wound up in prolonged periods of Pending Approval twice, so I must be doing something wrong.

    When are we getting another "Pending Approval Second Chance" deal, anyway? :v:

    I've been using another username for everything for ages. Sure as hell haven't been using the name "Dark Sonic" anywhere else :v:

    But I feel like Dark Sonic and that avatar of mine have just become my identity here so I think I'm going to keep it

    I'm pretty much Ravenfreak everywhere. I'm not changing my username anytime soon. :P I also go by "TheRavenfreak" because other people have used this username. (And it's a Tome character too, which ironically enough he's a hacker. I know it's a long stretch, but I sometimes wonder if I was the inspiration for the character I doubt it though. :v: )

    I recently realized that this old account of mine was still active (as is the e-mail address it's been connected to all these years), and while that's great, I hate this name now sooo...definitely would love the ability to change it after the switch. But if not, I'll live. I don't do much but read these days anyway. =P

    So it's finally time, eh?

    Glad I got to at least get a post in on the old forum before the change! :v:

    I'm certainly going to miss this old forum; all these 12 years of lurking around, reading stuff nearly daily basis. Those were good times. Still, I'm excited for the new forum! Just gotta make sure I'm still using the right email instead my old-ass one, haha.

    I'm highly tempted to change my username thanks to the Archie Comic series turning my silly fan-character into an actual canon character. :v: Though I've gone by this name in the Sonic fandom for so long I don't know what else I would use...

    I'm quite amazed at the number of people who hate their usernames! I suppose when you have a username from almost 20 years ago, a change would be nice.

    Having said that, the issue I have with the ability to change usernames is the confusion when people are posting or contacting me, it happens all the time on other XenForo forums and especially on Discord. When someone contacts me on Discord after changing their name and avatar, and often in such a casual way, I have to ask who the hell the person is, and then they respond as if I'm the crazy one...

    Perhaps some kind of restriction makes sense to implement (like having to wait 90 days to 6 months or so before changing names again).
