    Want to change my name but it is taken?

    Hi mods,

    I want to change my forum username to Neil (my name )

    But, this is already taken by someone with no posts ever and no visits since July 2009!

    Do these zero post accounts get deactivated at any time?

    Agreed, he hasn't been logged in for a while. However, he may come back to his senses and return. We don't generally take an existing username out simply because they haven't been on the site in a while. Would be best to pick something similar.

    I suffer the same fate on many forums I consider joining. Amazingly enough, there are a bunch of "cannibals" running around on the internet. Sometimes, I get full of myself and just sign up as "The Cannibal".

    "The" Neil does have a nice ring to it!

    Thanks for the answer Cannibal, I'll get the thinking cap on...

    might have to go all xbox and be "_Neil_"

    I take it that it is OK to request a change of name then?

    Sure is. Just drop any of the mods a PM with the request and we will get it handled for you.

    Maybe something like "Kneel"?
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.
