    I am requesting to have my name changed to "Freyl"

    I'd like a board-specific username that is more Star Wars related (the "rey" in Freyl). Thank you.

    Name is already taken, I'm afraid. if you click on Members at the top there's a 'Find Member' facility you can use to check if a name is taken.

    Thank you. "Freyed" seems to be available. I'd like to have that one. Thanks again.

    We've had quite a few board problems lately. Renaming users puts a load on the server that we could do without. Please be patient!

    Please ignore this. Not to flip-flop, but I'm good with my current username. Thanks.

    Howdy! I'd like to request that my username to be changed to "Lefty Solo" if I could. My current isn't particularly inspired, since I created this account as a 16 year old. Thanks

    Since my request hasn't been completed yet (not complaining...totally get it), I'd like to amend my request for a name change from Luke'sSeveredHand to MoofMilker85 if at all possible. Thank you mods/admins. The site looks great!

    Would it be possible to get the underscores removed from my name? jedi_john_33 to just jedi john (if available, or jedi john 33 if jedi john is taken)

    Thank you!

    @LAJ_FETT have you ever considered deletingold users who have never posted and/or have had zero activity for a certain period of time?

    We normally don't delete old users. Only ones I delete are ones I reject at the approval stage (possible spamvertisers, for example).

    Also, I've seen several users who popped back in to say hi in a social thread after being away for many years. Some of them are fanfic writers with old stories that they might want to fix the truncation on. So it's important that accounts stick around even if inactive. If those writers' accounts get deleted, they would never be able to edit or manage their old stories ever again if they decide to come back after a long absence.

    What about in the event that someone created an account years ago, and has never posted?

    I couldn't think of a name when I registered and was just thinking of red light sabers, but this name is awful.

    Can I be Darth Peligro please? Peligro is Spanish for danger.

    Hello there,
    I'd like to request a name change for my account. I'm trying to update all my social media accounts to be consistent with the same handle. If possible, could I change my handle to Kryptonian1138?

    I randomly popped in here after more than 12 years away and discovered my old account was still there. If it hadn't been, I wouldn't have bothered to register again, and wouldn't that be a tragic loss to the boards?

    Do we have any current member called "Starman" ?

    It would be good for privacy reasons, and also because I am a big SpaceX/Elon Musk fan.

    Also, Starman sounds sufficiently Star Warsy.
