That is the gist of the policy change, yes.
beware, its small name changes A new name should still not be a tool to cause confusion, so gruffy1 to gruffyback should be good. changing jippd to Blitzaholic2 would not be a good idea i think. just to use an example.
The policy is not something that is set in stone (as before when it was just no). Now that it is possible, someone needs to manyallg change the name in the database, so telling why you want it changed (if its more then minor) should be appreciated

Just FYI, minor cosmetic changes typically only include capitalization or a small typo in the original username (for example, if I had typed "blaekbowling" it would be permitted to adjust it to "blakebowling"). The change from gruffy1 to gruffyback most likely won't be allowed.


OK. I recently joined this site because I had heard of it on another site. I wasn't really planning to stick around, so I randomly typed some letters when I was asked for a user name.
But now that I'm starting to enjoy playing here, could it be possible for me to have my username changed?
It shouldn't cause confusion since I'm new.

in short, no

It's possible, but I'm not sure. Your best bet is to send in an eTicket (from the Help button at the top) and king achilles will assist you further.
