    That name is taken, I'm afraid. If you click on Members up top, there's a search facility on the Members page. You can use that to check if a name is taken.

    I would like to change my user name to JadeSphera
    Is it possible?
    The reason is that I want to have the same pen name I use for my work in other writer sites, so everything is the same.
    Thank you! :D

    Are you sure you really want to be yet another Darth something ? It's virtually half the people in the forums :p

    As a brand new user, you're better off just making a new account. No name changes have been processed since 2017. The name change process seems to have been abandoned, and I don't know why.

    they put a compressor on the xenforo servers ;)

    in all seriousness, it's probably because too many people are asking for a name change when they've literally just been here a day :p
    and has been mentioned previously it seems a bit of a stress for the servers to handle for whatever reason.
    Though this is conjecture on my part.

    When I signed up I added a "s" to my username by mistake. Are you able to change this to "Ice Cream Cake"?

    See my post three posts above. There hasn't been a name change since 2017. Just create a new account with the desired name and forget about this one.

    I am actually curious about this. Why does it seem like name changes used to be easier. Back in 2014 when I got my name changed it took about a day total from me asking to getting it changed.

    Has something changed on the software side or whatever to make it harder or was it always really a hassle to change your name?

    I seem to remember LAJ-FETT saying it's not as simple as it appears and they do it in bulk rather than one at a time.
    I dunno I'm sure it's here in one of the 38 pages

    Hello, can I please change my name to Raxisa Prima?

    Reason: My name makes me cringe because it contains a typo (syferdias instead of Sifo-Dyas), and it was also created before we found out that he was real and not, in fact, a lie. Raxisa is a name that I have used on many other Star Wars-related accounts. Thanks!

    Hi, could I please get a name change too Mister Foxhound? I've long since fallen out of love with the anime my current username came from and this would make me more recognisable in both Twitch and Playstation Live, including Star Wars Squadrons. If Mister Foxhound is not available, I'd happily settle for Mr Foxhound, Mr_Foxhound or Mr_Foxhound_NL.

    The "simple" solution is to re-register under the new name but that's not really a good one because it starts you back at ground level as far as replies and likes received and trophies. And if it's tied to a particular e-mail address, you have to link the new name to a secondary address.
