I understand how the internet works. What I'm saying is there would be an outrage if people were allowed to change their usernames at their leisure.

That can be your name if you want but not on CC.

I agree that having and using multi accounts can make this game frustrating....however for almost 5 years a suggestion was made to have the ability to change your user name. Has CC listened...NO. I grew bored and frustrated with CC almost a year ago and I have not used this account (kronic69) since then. Recently I got the urge to play again, however I wanted to start over.....So I created a new account and immediately sent a help ticket to notify CC mods that I will be using the new account ONLY and to deactivate my old account. Lets be clear, I in no was going to misuse the new account. I was met with a rude response and threats to deactivate both accounts.... deactivate.. so the can really do that.... one response even told me to only use my "primary" account... this infers that you can have a secondary account....CC mods.. stop the GOD complex and listen to your customers.

my suggestions are:

1. Create an ability to "prestige" (after you reach a certain point total) and start your stats all over, possibly giving a metal when doing so
2. During the prestige stage, offer the option to change your user name
3. or offer the ability to create an alternate user name under the same account
4. Follow a protocall all for account deactivation (not allow for games to be joined or forum posting) and allow for a new account user name to be created.

This will help to control misuse and allow for a user name change.
I am not suggesting to lose any game data or harm the integrity of the game, but to improve and allow for flexibility in a simple task... change your user name. The only reason why I created a new account (I had the old one since 20007) was because I grew tired of my old user name and wanted to start over on my stats and not to cheat in any way.

CC MODS wake up and start implementing some of these suggestions, instead of saying NO, think of how suggestions can improve the site and increase the #of paid users.... until this happens, I will probably remain a Freemium player.... if I play at all]


Do you really think that it's that easy just to snap your fingers and have a ton of Suggestions Implemented? The Webmaster is the only one coding things right, along with a lot more things, like dealing with website issues and bug, his real life, now apparently people want him to play more games so they can just get a medal by beating him.

Changing your username isn't easy in a website with game logs and forum posts, considering all of those want to change. And do you really think deactivating accounts will help? Now users that were a major problem, can easily just deactive/delete their old account, and start anew. And what is the point of having 2 accounts? A primary and a secondary? It sounds like the problem of a very high ranked users, who wants to play fun games yet keep there score.

And does your name really matter that much? CC has actually allowed users in the past while to change there names from personal names to something else, or to allow cosmetic changes.

You also have to take into effect how much trouble it would cause in Live Chat. Generally, us chat mods know most of the users that have troubled pasts in there. Suddenly, users are coming in that we don't recognize, and cause trouble. This just makes our jobs harder as we have to go looking through their information to see who they are.

I am on a site that allows users to have Alternate Accounts (Granted it's not a risk website), and personally, it's annoying as hell when someone you want to avoid barges in on your game and you don't recognize them.



wow... there it is... in black and white... "us chat mods know most of the users that have troubled pasts in there"... lmao.. aren't mods supposed to be non-biased representatives of the site? instead, it's clear that if a mod has a problem with a user, it's not even necessary to PRETEND to not be non-biased... you mods are a joke... perfect example is Arcee... I wouldn't know her if she fell out of the sky and landed on my head, but after almost no contact she foes me with no logical reason... how is this acceptable mod behavior? and the people that give you "problems" are people that you simply don't like because because they rubbed you the wrong way.. ya know, people can change their on-line persona from time to time, this isn't the real world in here like some would like to think... and it's clear by your statement that mods (in general with a FEW exceptions), are simply power-hungry losers that like to spend time flaunting their prejudice against some... classic

How is foeing someone bad behaviour for a mod? I don't understand.

But to get to this topic, not to dig up an older post, what about an "alias" button that could tell you if the player had an older name? I like my name apart from the non-capitalization, but this isn't so bad I would think.

Yes, except for some people change their names for privacy reasons.

Also, if you want capitalization, they'll change your name for you.
