What makes it right for you to be Cory and the other Corys not? First come first serve, just because they haven't been on Newgrounds yet today? What if a long time regular, or an affiliate wants the name Cory, should more important people get the name?

Meh

Also, if it's possible, i'd like the name Jambone. I don't know if that user was ever active or not.
Sorry, Jambone was moderately active for a time, so I'm not rushing to take away names from users who participated in the site.

Ok, no problem. but do you know what's going on, in the top right it says i'm still logged in as -jambone- and I can't vote, send PM's or look atmy account options.

Happened to me about a week ago. I think it;s just a server issue. It should go away soon.

That's one of my alts, i mean Michael.

But i in fact, change my idea, on this account, make it BonusStageUnlocked, I lost the name forever due to alts being deleted, and well I can't exactly get it back because the name has been "blocked" from being taken. So if you'd be so kind.

I wish to be BonusStageUnlocked.

while you're at it, is there a chance you'd clean out some taken names that aren't used, but don't have the "-" kind of deal going on? i'd love to use the actual charLotte instead of using this capital i kind of thing as a replacement, as well as rae for my other account (rae-).

Over the next week I'll try to accomodate everyone who contacts me. I want to make this as painless as possible for people.

Hmm, I think it should work out. Although you are going to be very busy and should get Wade or some other Admins and or Mods to help you out in the changes because I predict a flood in your PM Box. Most of the names that people would want are by inactive people so I think it would all work out. And I'm glad that you did this actually because I'd like to see more originality and personality on the BBS and not such dare I say, "cliche" names. What happens to the Inactive people that you take the name from? Do you change it to something else, delete it? And if so what do you change it too. I know you're busy and all but just curious.

I'm glad you did this though, I hated the - and the __ names.

I'm so glad a valued member of our community gets a rare name most likely owned by someone who signed up in the early stages of Newgrounds.

In a parody thread of this, I noticed subpar made the point about putting numbers in your name too. It looks pretty stupid if you ask me, because a name is a name, names don't have numbers in. :/

But then again, if that was a rule then there would be some pretty good names which would be disallowed, so I guess not. :/

Holy shit, you're all fighting over names now.

You're always fighting over something about Newgrounds! Whether it's the Angry Face, or the layout, or something so minor that it's not even worth mentioning.

It's not even worth it.

Hmm, well is there any way you could make either Frosty or Rifter available? Both are names I tried to get when I signed up four years ago but were taken at the time. Hell, even Kyle, my real name, would be good.
