Unfortunately, I think that the ability to change usernames helps give NG, especially the forums a sense of community feeling. When Christmas rolls around, for example, and all the mods change their names to something holiday related.
Or when Halloween rolled around and the flash regs changed their names so they could be "In costume"
These things are fun and helps give me, at least, that friendly, community feeling.
I've always enjoyed that freedom. People get bored. If they get bored of their account name, it was nice to know that another one could be chosen.
Is there a way to keep the profile name set in stone, but be able to modify our online identity? For example, my profile would always be johnny.newgrounds.com but at any given time, I could change my alias for submitting or forum purposes.
Comon Tom, Myspace does it and I know you love those guys =p.
Is something like that possible with how NG has been implimented?
