    I'd like to take out the underscore between "Handmaiden" and "Yane" and change the e at the end of Yane to the accented e so that it reads:
    Handmaiden Yané. :)

    I would like to change my name to Lazy StormTrooper because I was not thinking when I made my account and put in an older username I use to use.

    Requests have been submitted to MS. Yane - I'm not sure on the accent. The system might see it as not allowed in a user id.

    Are there any specific qualifications which require meeting in order to swap my username? I think I am overly due for a renaming. It's been literally a decade since my squabble on here with Vortex, which is where I picked this acronym from. I am ready for a divorce from it.

    Thanks. No worries if the accented e won't be accepted by the system...I thought that might be the case. If not, just the space instead of the underscore will do. :)

    Actually I think Jello tried the accent with a sock and the system allowed it.

    I want my name shortened to just Menace. I still think Violent Violet Menace (= Mace Windu) is a funny name, but a shorter name is catchier.

    Unfortunately, that name is already taken.

    Hmm, I checked and it's someone from 1999! Dude... How awesome would it be if you just let me usurp his account? He's not active anymore anyway. :p Could you put in spaces between the words for me then, at least? :)

    I would like to change my username to "Leah Jaded". Not a drastic change, just wanting to get rid of the "87" which seems unnecessary now, and I feel like a name change now that I'm returning to the boards after not being active for quite some time.

    Thanks in advance.

    By the way, I was serious about the part with the spaces, you know. :p Now that it is possible to have spaces in usernames, I would like to have spaces between the three words in my name. Thanks in advance. :)

    I would like to request a space in- between "Moonspun" and "Dragon" so it won't look so cramped.

    I would also like to have the underscore taken out of my username, I want it to be Darth Morella.
    When I registered I couldn't use a space and I didn't want it to be a single word so I had to settle for the lesser of two evils.

    Odd. So I come back to TF.N to share the joy of new Star Wars, I find by resetting my password that I'm somehow registered as 'slaveleia'. o_O

    Back in the day, (Member since 2000!) I was Buddha Fett. Or maybe it was Buddha_Fett. Can I get it fixed?!?!

    LOL.. sorry guys.. didn't even see this thread... To the Jedi Masters running this site... I've been a long time member since 1999... and long story short... is there anyway I can change my screen name, to what I use on my website, xbox live tag, ps3 tag and every other thing out there? I am miDnIghtEr20C and made the name I have way back in 99 before I became such an internet sensation. ;) lol.. anyways... thanks if there's a way. I couldn't find it in my options.

    I'd like to change my name to: JTKenobi

    I have not been active on this forum for years. However, I think it is likely I will be more active going forward as seems to be more in depth discussion of the films than in the RS forums. Would it be possible to have my name changed from 'jtknbi' to 'JTKenobi'? This is the name I have gone by in other forums for many years now.

    I'd like my username changed because I don't want to use my real name. I'd like my username changed to Darth Horn Rollo. Thanks.
