You should make it so the user must PM you to request an alias change.Wouldn't that be wonderful. :)
When I first heard about teh name changes or whatever, I thought that is what you had to do. So, thats what I did and wondered why I had never got a reply back, haha. (prolly because of mass messages in inbox).
Hm...This is neat that we're going to have our own individual pages now. I must ask, are we still going to have the pop up profiles or not? Like, what if a username on the site is one that represents the creators of a project as a whole(TLG Media, etc) therefore meaning it'll just be a business page then? Like, on the page could they have it where it'll link to their individual profiles if they have them? You click a name, and a popup profile page opens?
Also, what if someone just creates audio for the audio portal and doesn't make flash animations or games. Would their page look different than others? Would that have a player that would sample their creations? Would flash animators be able to put in an html tag that'll have a streaming player with their flash movie(s) on it? Same with those who solely create games. What if someone just programs for people and stuff, would they have a "special" page also?
I'm not saying all that stuff, as if its going to be another Myspace or some crap. In fact, I know it wont be myspace for sure, Newgrounds doesn't crash like every ten minutes - /sarcasm - like Myspace does. Those of Newgrounds actually know how to keep a high traffic site up kept.
I say you should make username locking. It'll eliminate a lot of hassle, and if users don't like it, well I think they'll get over it. They should understand that you're adding the new features for them/us anyway and that'll it will make the experience better in the long run.
