You'll have to contact an admin. Shouldn't be a problem.

 

 

 

NAME CHANGES:
When you sign up for an account at the B&C you are asked to create a USERname and a DISPLAYname. These do not have to be the same. However, think carefully on what you want your DISPLAYname (the name people will see attached to your posts) to be. We rarely change DISPLAYnames without good reason.

Typical reasons for changing a DISPLAYname are:
  • Name is too long and throwing off thread formating. This is usually fixed by simply adding spaces or removing underscores.
  • Name contains offensive material.
  • Name is too close to another users name. If confusion is caused by your name being close to an existing members name you may be asked to change it.
  • Misspelling. Sometimes in the rush to register an account a user might hit the wrong key and wind up doing something like spelling Rogue as Rouge. In cases like this we can often fix that with a quick reset of the DISPLAYname. This may not be possible if there is already a DISPLAYname like it on the forums. In that case you will be asked to choose a new DISPLAYname.
Reasons that a name change is usually turned down include but are not limited to:
  • I'm bored with this name.
  • I don't play this army anymore and want to change.
  • I named myself after a character who is now dead.

As a gift we gave everyone 30 days or so at the start of the year to change their display name but it is not something we normally do.

Well doesn't it say there that misspellings are valid reason to change it?

Well that's good to know.

 

I should be Walcheren. 

 

Even so, I also have a profile with another community and for consistency have stuck with Welcheren.

 

Perhaps if they are also willing to effect the vowel change I'll be knocking on your door. Softly. On my knees. blush.png
