  • Name Change Has this happened to anyone else?

    I was trying to login yesterday and it said unfortunatly i had to change my name. I have had my name i_am-the_walrus for about three months now and i don't get why now it is making me change my name. i went on monday night fine but then yesterday, tueday, it would not let me login without changing my name. I exited out before changing it.

    If this has happened to anyone else, please tell. I really don't want to change my name if i don't have to.

    Thank you

    It's done it to a few of us - if you'll notice YoyoFlamingo had to change his name to YoyoPinkLawnBird.

    No idea why!?

        Yes it does happen to people. I just hope it never happens to me. LOL

        Sorry to hear you had to change yours.

            I know in most cases they are trying to eliminate any similarities to staff titles. Any titles that may be mistaken/used as a staff title is questionable to them. i.e. YoYoFlamingo had Flamingo in it. Anything with some sort of abbreviation and underscore or hyphen seems to be another flag. Anything that has WDW or DLR or something in the beginning is another. They are also asking those with "family" type titles to change them. i.e. CL_Mamacita had to change to CL_Cita because they didn't want the mama in it.

                Yep! It happened to me, as evilqueenrocks said. I logged in one day and it said I couldn't keep Dubeskin. I still want to know why. But what's odder is that they let me have Dubeskinreal. I tried such things as Realdubeskin, Dubeskin1, stuff like that, but for some reason they accepted Dubeskinreal. And I don't believe there are any Community Leaders with such a name. Or staff members. But doesn't CL_Dubeskin or VMK_Dubeskin sound pretty cool :thumbup:?

                    Someone I knew tjmax had to change his name. Obviously whoever approved it didn't know it was a store- TJ Max. They had to change it once someone else realized I guess.

                      so your saying that i am having to change my name from i_am-the _walrus to something else because it is a song by the Beatles?

                        I think it's the underscores they don't like. Try just "Iamthewalrus" and see if that works. I don't think it's the fact that it's the Beatles, which by the way is a great band, but the underscores that they don't like. Also, are you actually allowed to have that many characters in your name?

                              A similar situation: When we created Vic's character, we both thought it would be very amusing to name her "Admiral Boom" (a character from Mary Poppins.) No matter how many variations I tried, they wouldn't accept that name.

                              Tell me: what in the known universe could possibly be objectionable with the name Admiral Boom?

                              In the end, we chose a name that honors her family's horse-racing heritage: Thoroughbred.
