    Hi: I am known as Jade_eyes. I have spoken with another user who changed their user name and sought their suggestion, based on what I include below.

    Please change to: Nyota'sHeart or if possible Nyota's Heart. I will accept either. :D

    Reason: Since 2009, the Trek fandom has gotten my creative concentration in the heavier measure, and I can only see it doing more so from now on. Nyota's heart is a beautiful thing, a loving and lovable thing, and that word also expresses her romantic relationship. ^:)^ Thanks oodles for your consideration. @};-

    Could somebody change my name to Buruun the Bloodbringer. I want to honor the potentially cancelled Knight Errant with my username.

    If others are asking, may I just be Jaden ? That is what people call me.

    Jaden1138 here's some advice. (this can also apply to anyone else looking to change their name)

    Type the new name you want for yourself after an ampersat to see if it's taken or not. Oftentimes it's easy to make a slight adjustment to your desired user name.

    For example, if I wanted to change my username to CadBane4ever, I'd type @ CadBane4ever, but without the space between the ampersat and the name. I'd see that the name was taken. Doesn't matter that CadBane4ever only has 5 posts and hasn't been active in 4 years, the name is rightfully his/hers. I could then potentially change my request to be called CadBaneForever, which I'd see is not taken.

    And basically wash, rinse, repeat until you find a name that is available. An easy shortcut to see if the name you want is available or not. The other way is to click on the Members tab at the top and search for names there. ( Grimby or whomever, feel free to add a version of this to the OP as if people ever actually read the OP =p)

    May I have my username changed to remove the underscores? It looks silly with the last word stretched across two lines. (I debated asking to change it to StoryWonker, as that's what I use on other sites, but TEC was the first username I registered anywhere so it has a sentimental value).

    I would like to have my name changed to Darth Dominikkus.

    My name in real life is Dominic and friends have called me Dominikkus and have used it as a nickname of sorts. On many other forums and websites my name is Darth Dominkkus, the darth just makes the name flow. Thank you!

    After being on this message board for almost 9 years, I feel a name change is in order and, quite frankly, it's long over due IMO, what with the current username I have being rather ****ty mainly due to having been thought up when I was much younger and less creative with UN's. Here's what I would like instead: Ichor_Razor

    Thank You

    I would like a name change please. When I first made this username I rushed it and was never satisfied with it. Plus I don't know why I put the hyphen and it always bothers me. I would like to change it to Shereshoy Cabur, simple first name and last name style. Please and thanks!

    I'd like to request to change my user name to Theron Solo. Theron Shan and Han are 2 of my favorite characters. I think that username would represent me better than my current username. I hope it's available. Thanks in advance.

    Because at the time I didn't think of it till after I registered if I did I would have made it my user name which is why so immediately after registering I requested to change it to that.

    I smell a sock. Which is kinda gross, both literally and metaphorically.
