    Status Update for my account and screen name:

    A link was sent to my gmail address to confirm the Tython Awakening account.

    The link has the following message, "Jedi Council Forums -- Error, Your account could not be confirmed."

    Hi,

    Is the username Darth_Moll available? (With the underline)

    Reason: Moll is a bit boring.

    Thanks. :) >>>

    Howz about "Darth Shopping Mall" ? Ok, I just checked [click Members then enter screen name]. Both Darth Moll and Darth Shopping Mall are taken.

    I can see your account - it is awaiting email confirmation. Did you get the email OK at your gmail address? If so, how long after that did you try to confirm?

    Clicking on the link produced the error message before. Just now I clicked again and it looks confirmed now:

    Can you guys change my name to " Void " ? The account is empty and has been inactive since 2000.

    Just tired of the current name.

    I'm not a moderator or admin, nor do I have any kind of access to the name change interface. I just hang out and answer simple questions and provide basic information as needed to reduce the load on the admins. @JoinTheSchwarz is the one who typically does name changes, however they are done in batches every couple of months or so late at night due to the stress it puts on the servers (slow responses and timeout errors are common while name changes are being processed).

    But when I search for Darth_Moll (with the underscore), no members show up, so why would I need to extend it? :)

    @Daniel Cutting - you're good to go on the new ID. If you want the current one banned, let me know.

    @Moll - looks like the Darth_Moll ID is available.

    As said above, @JoinTheSchwarz usually does that during quiet periods on the system.

    Thanks, I will start using the new one on the next log in. Thank you for the offer on banning the current one. I'm going to keep the current acct without having it banned.

    I missed the underscore!

    The idea of Darth Maul going on a shopping spree and throwing all kinds of stuff into a shopping cart has always intrigued me.

    It was an excuse for me to write about Darth Maul.

    Glad it's working! I've added a user note to both accounts to explain what happened.

    Request to have my user name changed to J2SO

    I don't actually like my current one and Snoke isn't a favourite of mine, so would prefer not to have my handle associated with that character.

    I would like to request a name change to: Man-Eating Porg

    Reason: I created this account in a hurry and have decided that the above name would go better with my chosen avatar.

    Thank you for your time and consideration of this request.

    I see no one updated the usernames users have been requesting the last few weeks but I'll give it a shot anyway.

    I'd like my username to be changed to something simple like " Evil ".

    Simply because I've had my current name for a very long time and I've been feeling a bit evil lately!

    Evil is already taken, I'm afraid. Try using the Member Search facility on the Members page to check if the name you want is already in use.

    I admins, I was wondering if I could change my username to "vTweak" please.

    Reason being that I am simply tired of my username, and I think it hasn't aged well.

    Thank you, and have a great day.[face_coffee]
