YEA!!! The more I think about it, the cooler it sounds. It could be like a myspace account except better!
I laugh at your sigs!

I like it, so I have no problemo if you do have the lockdown or not.
I'd agree. I mean, who'd come up with a user name they don't like and register it? If somebody did, it makes no sense to me.
I"m really not on the forums enough too have a good signature. Bonus points may be awarded to those who find the typo in the previous sentence.
i have changed it once a year or maybe months ago so is this going to stop happening anytime soon or has it been fixed as of yet?
If someone signs up with a username they later don’t like, they will make a new account with the new name they want. Meaning loads of account that no one will ever use again.
See what I am getting at?
I've have changed my name about five or six times already and Ithink I'll keep this name since its one of my online names, but to be honest I really think you should keep the name changing thing here on newgrounds. Come on Tom, having it is what makes newgrounds unique and popular sometimes, besides what people might not like their original user names and what to change it?
Go for lockdown, changing their names is something that in more cases than not, is abused here.
Besides, why would you need to change your username? All the good flash createors stick with their origional name anyways.
What you should do is:
Have to fields, one for Username, and one for Display Name.
Make the UserName, permanent, and what you login with, this is what your custom page will be linked as.
Then the display name, what everyone sees you as, on the forums and stuff. This will be changable.
Hope you read this, may take a lot of coding though.
Some great music.
Just lock the names, I've yet to see anyone list a reason for having to have name changes other than "I like to be contrary/idiotic at times" which is fair too insignificant a reason to base userpages around IDs that no one remembers versus a superior scheme that actually has rememberable value for most people (the names themselves). Make them choose something and stick with it.
I don't really want to read all 15 pages of this so this may be a little redundant ( and possibly repetitive) but:
Why not have the user make thier page (with a perma-username) when they choose, so like have a link in your account options that explains it all and that after it is made you cannot change the URL.
This would also make it so people who dont use their accounts anymore dont have a page
Also, it would give people a chance to figure out a good name before making their page.
and what would you do about people who make tons of pages wiht different accounts and then never use them?
It seems like this would be a bigger problem with pages than with how they are now..
There is a solution: Everyone can change ther nickname, but they can choose only ONCE ther homepage name... for example: voldy.newgrounds.com and it never change again... Simple and Easy
personally, I don't mind. what's the pint of changing names? just pick a name you like, and stick with it

1) Let users to change their Usernames.
2) URLs would be : username.newgrounds.com and #id.newgrounds,com
So if they change their username - the first url would be screwed, but the second one wouldn't be, since you can't change your ID.
For security reasons, I will swap my username to NinoGrounds, though.
My solution would be similar, but I would only have the user id number as the url. It'd be similar to how flashes are given a location; by number, not by name. Unless the flashes are also getting their own url. Couldn't a simple search feature be included to locate users?
I dont have any problems with no being able to change my name and i think u should do what needs to be done for the good of the site. Some users might not like it but the will get over it.
Simple, just have a "permanent" name and a "temporary" name. The permanent name is the one used for the profile site and the temporary can change at the users will, but should generally be the same as the permanent name to make it easier for people to remember your profile name.
Then people can change their temp name for certain occasions.
You could just make it so they can change names, but the URL never changes. because, some people make up little production groups, pretend ones, like that they create, and need to change it.
I wont have to, but some people will. And if anyone joins like the Locks, or Clocks, or a gang of some sort, they will need to change the name to like MartinClock, etc. And I think you should be able to change it, as thats a unique thing about here, and one main thing on NG is, the amazing groups, which makes it unique also.
But its all up to the staff, in the long run.
i was wondering
was mine the only account that got deleted?
my old username was X_x
and i had for the longest time
now that i tried to log in, its gone :[
can i have it back? </3
There are so many complaints about deleted accounts now, email one of the webmasters, maybe there is a problem with the main server -.-
