while you're at it, is there a chance you'd clean out some taken names that aren't used, but don't have the "-" kind of deal going on? i'd love to use the actual charLotte instead of using this capital i kind of thing as a replacement, as well as rae for my other account (rae-).

Over the next week I'll try to accomodate everyone who contacts me. I want to make this as painless as possible for people.

Hmm, I think it should work out. Although you are going to be very busy and should get Wade or some other Admins and or Mods to help you out in the changes because I predict a flood in your PM Box. Most of the names that people would want are by inactive people so I think it would all work out. And I'm glad that you did this actually because I'd like to see more originality and personality on the BBS and not such dare I say, "cliche" names. What happens to the Inactive people that you take the name from? Do you change it to something else, delete it? And if so what do you change it too. I know you're busy and all but just curious.

I'm glad you did this though, I hated the - and the __ names.

I'm so glad a valued member of our community gets a rare name most likely owned by someone who signed up in the early stages of Newgrounds.

Lovely

In a parody thread of this, I noticed subpar made the point about putting numbers in your name too. It looks pretty stupid if you ask me, because a name is a name, names don't have numbers in. :/

But then again, if that was a rule then there would be some pretty good names which would be disallowed, so I guess not. :/

Holy shit, you're all fighting over names now.

You're always fighting over something about Newgrounds! Whether it's the Angry Face, or the layout, or something so minor that it's not even worth mentioning.

It's not even worth it.

I have been changing their names, adding numbers to the end... But I should really just delete them and clean things up. :)

Any accounts that are inactive for over a year (the really crappy accounts) should be auto-deleted.

Hey Tom, did you miss my PM? If so, then it was about if my alias Bahamut- (an alt is holding it right now) could be changed to Bahamut. If so, then I'd be very happy :)

Oh yeah, I forgot that you could change your own name with the confusion of Tom deleting other users to make room for users who need legitimate names. :P

You're really keeping on the ball with the username thing. It took not even 5 minutes for the alias switch.

Thanks!

Hmm, then will ultimately will this lead to the cleaning up of NG members. 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.
