It would be a good idea to change our names if for some reason we don't like it or want a new name.This reduces duplicate accounts being created often.

As has been stated, PM an Admin to request a name change. There should be a compelling reason for changing it. It does not make sense to change it for the sake of change. As people get used to seeing a member and become familiar. Changing your name 'just because' causes people to wonder and you have to become reacquainted with everyone. Creating a new account to acquire a new identity/name is a violation of the forum rules and is subject to losing forum privileges.

Hope this clears up some thoughts and ideas about the use and changing of member names.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
