Is it still possible for Mods or Admins to change names?? Because id like to go back to my original name Ant1s0c1al.

If its not possible, then im contemplating making a new account with the name. Is there any reason i should do that (rules, moral misconduct, angry mobs of psychiatric shrinks)

IIRC you can change your screen name.
Having multiple accounts is officially forbidden...

there was an old way where we could change the names people see in the fourms in the Go section and is in my profiles somewhere, except i think you cant do that anymore, there was a rush of people who did it a little while ago, but i dont see anyone else doing it lately.

Just keep the good old soul thief name man, its really cool....

I think the mods can change your display name. After the new software (the update before the last one) it was removed. Fortunately i jumped on the bandwagon and shortened mine.

well i asked RMM (mac) and he said


They cut out that feture to let you do that. Sorry.

but that didnt answer my question fully of



Is it possible to get my name changed back to Ant1s0c1al

I guess i wasnt specific enough, i meant can HE change it??

But if a mod will give me permission to open a new account that would be nice.

And Samfisher128, i would really like to keep my forum name the same on all my forums, it just gets confusing after a while.

I tried to see if I could change it for you, but no dice, sorry. It only would let me edit things like your avatar, sig, etc. But I couldn't get into the window with the user name. I suppose an admin might could, or a senior mod (I've only been one since March)

Sorry there Soul, you can't change it back and you can't get back your old name either. If you want to change to some other name do so <span class="ev_code_RED">BUT </span>let us know and we can remove the Soul account. Not good to break the rules you know.

Back when you could change the screen name I changed mine. So when I sign in I have to use my old name on the account, but <span class="ev_code_GREEN">Angel Fire </span>is what is on screen.

<span class="ev_code_PURPLE">PS: what's so wrong with Soul Thief. I like it and I'm sure the others like it.</span>
