Delete or rename Player 'V'

Postby patrickaa317 on Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:47 pm

I always end up inviting the below person to a game by not holding ctrl hard enough. By deleting his account or renaming it, it would alleviate this issue. This player never played any games and the last time he visited was the exact same time he joined. This should be a quick, easy thing the new webmaster could do and immediately make all the tournament organizers that make this mistake happy. Let's get it done!

Well, you picked just about the worst day of the year to make this recommendation.

I'm sure that if you think hard and remember, remember, you'll get it.

Actually, it doesn't refresh my memory since I have never seen that movie but thanks for posting. Quite the coincidence here isn't it... :lol: :lol:

I got it instantly Mets :) That is quite a coincidence.

I have no idea whether just deleting an account happens. Also, I assume that you'd want some sort of restriction on signing up for an account with this name?

This wouldn't present the same problem ...

Yeah, just finished my obligatory watching of the movie when I saw this thread :)

It's not common practice to delete accounts entirely, but name changes happen relatively often in the case of inappropriate usernames. Since the account in question has not played a single game, I don't think anyone will complain too loudly if we change this person's username, and block anyone from creating the username "V."

I didn't even think of a name change. Patrick, I'd suggest PM'ing an admin about this. It's something they can do with their tools and they'd probably be able to tell you right away whether it will be done.

If a username has been changed, as of right now, we do not have any tools to prevent anyone from coming up with that former name once again.

^ Correct. If he happens to be a multi afterall then that person made that name no longer available after the bust and we'd be back of having an existing account named "V".

Update: PM replied to the TS.
As for other similar suggestions, we will still stick to no.4 of the FAQ's page regarding username change requests.
