    Very well.

    I really need some kind of consistent response post for these things.

    Why the underscores, though? Spaces would look much better.

    Maybe it's just an aesthetic preference, like a silent 'h'.

    Heyyyy we could hypothetically theoretically technically possibly maybe request temporary names for Halloween, right? ...right???? Pretty please with candy corn on top?????

    The admins wouldn't have to do it -- you could outsource the menial work to the newbie mods! Tell them it's a drill for 2015.

    So, the issue with that is that there's a hard maximum of 5 username changes coded in, and going to a temp and back counts as 2.

    In addition, it'd be a massive logistical pain and do nothing except make cross-referencing exceedingly confusing. If you strongly desire an alternative Halloween username, please use the traditional sock method.

    I second Ramza on this one. The use of Halloween socks is an established tradition.

    Hi there! Seeing that I made up my current username about 10 years ago when I didn't know better, I was wondering if I could change it to Chowder. I'm aware somebody's claimed it, but they haven't posted since 2001, so I thought it might be worth a shot. Thanks in advance!

    I would like to change my name to The Kulvax Sisters, MasterOfEnlightenment is a handful of a name and honestly people have actively said they find it hard to call me anything but MOE, considering I hate that name with a passion, I would immensely appreciate it.

    I don't like Ramza. He's far too accommodating.

    Requesting to have my name changed to "Master Corran Horn" because my current username was created when I was young and dumb. Also Corran Horn is my favorite Jedi. Also my Avatar is the piny version of Corran Horn. Thanks.

    I know you can't merge accounts but are you able to swap the account names of two of my accounts? I'd like to have my orignal reg date, not really worried about my post history.
