Effective immediately, a person can change their name only one every phase, and only after a phase has been declared to have started up until the DOI submission deadline.

This is to avoid situations where submitted names for certain actions no longer match with the changed names. It's also to stop people from changing names too often or for dubious reasons.

Great idea. Thanks for enforcing this.

I agree, it was pretty hard to keep up with all the name changes going on lately.

My apologies.

I was one of the members who changed username's and this occured after Turn 1 of Phase 15.....i should have realised the potential problems this might have caused had i been used in battle.....

I will know to wait between Phases the next time i might change my username. :P

I have personally always tried to follow this or make sure to wait to change my name if I'm being used in an action for a certain phase. This won't be a hard rule to follow.

Sounds like a great rule.. so now I guess we'll be calling Milano "Felipe" from now on.. or was it "Folipe"..? :?

...So those outright cruel name changes can be changed back once Phase 16 starts, right?

It's Falipe, thank you very much! And considering that this was completely random fun we thought up during chat so we wouldn't get bored in between phases, this rule is great!

Well, I think as punishment for their joke, making the "F*lipe Brothers" keep their names for a phase would be most amusing.

Of course, that's just my opinion on the matter. Other people find it to be incredibly confusing and may want to see it changed as soon as possible, or perhaps before the DOI deadlines. The only guy not really at fault here is the original "Filipe."

I do have one question about something that doesn't seem to make sense. It looks to me like people aren't allowed name changes between phases. I'm curious as to why that is, since it wouldn't affect roster submissions, if there's no phase going on at the moment.

Because stuff like victory count addition and some other background processes are run between phases.

I would also ad Felipe to that list, since that is also his real name. Plus, I don't think he would change his name back unless he really wanted to, particularly with a charge attached.

In any event, I also think this is a good rule which is, in hindsight, long overdue.

I gotta agree...I can't imagine how Obnoxious that must be. People just changing their names a bajillion times every phase. I'd go nuts and cuttabitch. So, Smart move there, Boss.

Either that or I need to change things so people can have two names or something... one "public name" and one "not-so public name." Sort of like those awkward people who go by their middle name and hide their first name with their life.

Maybe but it seems a lot of users seem to be annoyed at the idea of multiple random name changes, rather than the whole victory count updating issue.

In fact, wasn't that one of the dubious reasons referenced?

Don't soften up, stay hard, hard as a rock. No surrender!

I personally can't keep up with the name changes myself. Even with that topic.

BE A MAN AND STICK WITH YOUR NAME, DAMMIT.

Or at least change it in a not so radical way (From Benjamin to Ben, for instance) do the Futchman a favour.
