Nothing at present, but that's not the issue. You guys are all saying, "Well, I don't see what good it does". This isn't about the now, it's about the future and what these changes mean with respect to what we'll be doing in the future that's important. Just because you can't throw a best guess as to why these name restrictions are being put into practice, doesn't make the reason for making the restrictions invalid...

Okay Tom. Even though I already knew that, one guy was complaining about that this morning at Flash forum.

You're a real idiot, you know that?
Tom and any other admin can change your name at any time they want, dumbass.
This isn't like a thread where someone says "you cant post unless you have 1000 posts", this is real, they'll change your name if you don't do it/ask for it to be changed(if someone inactive already has the name you want).


REAL TALK: you better go get a glass of orange juice & spill it all over yourself likea big dumb baby before i tear through your hymen like a dog tears through a piece of meat

Would this at all be possible in the future, I don't know if it's possible but I posted it a little earlier in the thread:

Like after 3 months if the person doesn't sign in they're listed as inactive. Or, if they are inactive after a year, they lose the rights to their name and it's up for grab and their name is replaced with a number starting at 0000001 and then so on and so fourth. It would be alot of work but I think it would be awesome to see all the actual active members there are on NG and not just alts and inactives.

Or in plain English, The programmers of NG are tinking with different web-based programming types that are easier to implement without hypens and shit.

The whole inactive users losing their name is a very good thing though. Good one on that guys.

You know, I can't change my name to 'Zenon'. Someone else already has that name.

Fuck, time to start thinking about usernames again...

thank you for letting me know even though mine does not need fixing Tom it's high time for new user name standards I think it's a good Idea as well.

Just request for Zenon, unless the person who's called that is an active user?

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 17:05:08


I didn't even know I could change my alias because I have never updated anything in my personal profile even on any of my accounts. If I knew about this sooner I would have been using this account (my original account) again a long time ago; I guess it is time to start over on my post count.

LOL. Wow, that's a lot of clocks to upload crack on Clock Day.........phew..

And, can you tell if a user is active? Or do you have to check a date for that?

That's because it is. :P

I'm sure Tom will delete it when he gets round to it.

Domain names? Are you going to start a Newgrounds MySpace or something? If so, why can't I have a arabfreak.newgrounds.com domain AND arab_freak as my alias?

Weak... not only is my sig based off my name including the dashes, but I even made one of those holographic things (at a 3d convention called Siggraph) that changes as you look at it at different angles.

lol check it out:

don't worry about the fact that it's backwards... i configured my webcam to be backwards so I could move my hand one way and have it move that way onscreen.

I dunno, I kind of like my new name. I always did hate the name Zenon anyways, just that if I changed it, everyone would be like "Who the hell is that?"

This is a pretty good reason for me to change my name, I think :)
