You’re only level 8. Can’t you just make a new account?

ok if changing name breaks links and we have numbers why dont they just have the profile lined to the numbers? also what if all accounts have to reach a certain lvl to change name and they can only have a name change once?

I want to change my name, too. i tried looking for a button that allows you to change your name, like other games i play. but i couldn’t find one. so here is a suggestion to Kongregate team: make a link that let’s you change your name. i want my new name to be M3NT4L PYTH0N.

Wait… found this on their FAQ, about linking Facebook and Kongregate accounts:

“There’s one exception to this – if you create a brand new Kongregate account using Facebook connect, your initial Kongregate username will be based on your first name and last initial on Facebook. It’s easy to change this default username in your account settings.”

So new Facebook-linked accounts can change their username, and old accounts can’t? What gives?

When someone creates a Kongregate account through Facebook, it automatically creates a username, example JimG1. They have one chance to change their username, because it was automatically created and not their choice.

To make a bit of money why don’t kongregate allow you to change your name for a small fee? Or offer it to kong plus members or whatever it’s called i reckon they would get a few more members this way, you would be surprised how many people would do it.

I want to put a big “B” on the start of my name so it becomes Boyman, instead of boyman.

You can send a message to Zshadow, trickyrodent, or IAmTheCandyman (or possibly another administrator, but these three are the community managers) and they’ll be able to change it for you.


EDIT @below: Or that.

they should start adding these features, or else they are going to end up like myspace. someone better is probably going to come along, giving people what they want.

they should have a feature to change name. maybe make it take effect after a day or 3, so that people dont spam changes for the server to change.
and they should remove namewasters( only the obvious ones)

and the feature to permanently delete account, so that others can use the name.

that would be too confusing, kong way of this name change is good enough.

nope. it is not confusing.

although they would have to make a mre specific, less server intensive way of doing it. maybe allow ip and account only 1 change. that way they would have to be more careful and there would be less abuse.

If someone were able to have the same name as someone else, it’d be very confusing for others. For example, if you deleted your account “Galdos” and someone joined up with the same name. They could essentially pretend to be you, and have access to all your information as our site can’t physically remove information linked to your account. So your profile shouts, forum posts, game revenue, etc. would then be their’s.

Is it possible for me to have my name changed from screams4 to Screams4? I forgot to capitalise it when I made the account and it’s been bugging me ever since I joined.
