They can change stuff. If they will is a completely different matter though.

Sooooo…..could a Admin or so look at this maybe? xD I think they can change it, because some people keep having forbidden names, and they get the chance to change it i think

Hi there! Community admin here. We only allow name changes if we determine a name is inappropriate or otherwise not ok for the site. Otherwise, all I’m able to do is provide capitalization changes and make you Arthur97 or ArThuR97 or something like that. :)

If someone’s account is banned because of the username, that account gets a profile shout (and email, if that feature is enabled) advising the owner to email support about a name change. We recognize that people often assume the internet is completely lawless, and then are startled to discover that Kongregate is different (or at least trying!). Some of the apologetic “uh, whoops, sorry about that” emails we get are really quite nice.

What about this?

So names got changed. And it even looks like Advocatus got one. A mod got one too. What about one sort of “Token” for every user, like discussed in the thread?

I didn’t get one.

Adv0’s is a capitalization change, not a name change. The system doesn’t care how you make capitals in a name. It sees SugarMonkey the same as sugarmonkey, SUGarmonkey, SugaRMOnkey, etc. It’s only the displayed name that changes and the core name is still the same.

I just don’t understand, why pick the name you have now if you want to change it?

Availability of a username is a problem, as well as age (growing up, maturity, etc.).
