Nope, you're stuck with the one you have.

You could possible ask Wade to change it, but considering you haven't really done much on the site I don't think it's really worth it. You may as well just make a new account if you dislike your name that much.

If I could change my name, I'd change it to Max Power!

Message Tom or Wade. Since you haven't done much on your account, I'd suggest just making a new one with the username you want.

I wish there was a warning for all new signups that user names are permanent and cannot be changed later on.

Sure there's a way. Just send a PM to the people in control mentioning which name you would like to have it changed to and they might magically transform it. Though you should have a good reason. If everyone wanted to change their usernames for no reason at all then it would be a royal pain for the admins. Usernames are by rule permanent, thus the exception.

Same thing, contact the admins. Though the best option for everyone would be to just be to forget about it and let it be, maybe enter a random password in the process.

You used to back in early years of newgrounds. I think you weren't able to after 2005, I could be wrong.


Yeah, I don't speak much...

After the great NG redesign of 2007, all usernames were embedded into the site, thanks to HTML (I think - I can't remember). Because of this usernames can no longer be changed easily, and in order to change your username, you have to go through a painful process of getting into the site's code and all that.

don't make a new account, you can't lose your sign up date. 2010 was 3 years ago and i don't think you want to look like you just signed up.

I was asked if I wanted just Jade, but I said nein.

Oh the good old days of the name changes and then the side accounts to keep your old name so you can go back to it.

I wish we could just change our usernames willy nilly like we did back in the day.
