I like being arab_freak. I don't think changing my name to arabfreak will do justice. Why have hyphens and underscores removed? I want to stay as arab_freak, I think I have the right to have it that way.

Be arab-freak and GET OVER IT. It's not the end of the world, and the benefits to everyone conforming to a cleaner method are far more rewarding than an underscore.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:39:22


why?

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:39:39


find the person that has the name Evan, because they have no BBS posts and no movies or games. And I want that name.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:40:02


Just a small question about the force changing. Are you going to replace the underscores in names with hyphens, or will you just remove the underscore flat out?

(can I be special and keep my underscore, pretty please with sugar on top)

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:41:01


Ah well. I sent you a PM.

I'll start thinking of some alternative names if you don't want to delete that inactive "miniman" account

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:41:05


Is this name ok now?

But Why? Why are you making these new name requirements??? So what if other sites use them newgrounds isn't those other sites.

Are you kidding me?! I always have my name. People recognizes me as Dark_Volcano_Sam, and you are saying that I should change my name? My name is always displayed in some sites, like Sheezyart.

Okay, I will change my name, but you are not the boss of my life!

No underscores? I could see your hyphen rule, but underscores are as traditional to the internet as spaces. If you don't allow spaces, you have to allow underscores.

I ain't mad, because my alias has never had an underscore in it.

But I did have to change my emergency name-holding alt Slash_Firestorm to SlashFirestorm23. Ah, well. If this change will make things easier, it's for the best.

But I love being last on the user list all the time.
Plus, "Owsley" is already taken.
I've never even seen that dude before.

:(

PM sent. I'll think of something if I can't be helped.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:48:22


agggh FatherTime is already taken now I'm stuck with Father-Time which I think looks stupid.

I sent you a PM. I wanna be regular Evan. Pleeeeease =[

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:50:50


:D Thank you!

I've been wanting to have miniman as my name for years.

Response to New Username Standards 2006-09-09 12:52:34


I can undrstand the no hyphens on the ends thing, but why no underscores?

...oh well.
I shouldn't care. I like being LostFox. No hyphens or underscores.


Sigs are overrated.

Woo! After the name change, I was motivated to make a new sig, and it rocks.

Damn, I have to change my name which I've had for nearly my whole time here.

If the person doesn't have a profile, it most likely means they're inactive.

SCORE!
Owsley's is white.
Does this mean I have a good chance of getting my rightful name?

If the hyphenated name is available, most likely it will auto-convert to the hyphenated form.
