    Name Change request


    Hey rather than deactivate my account and register a new one I was wondering if an admin could change my name from what it is now to JPF.

    Thanks

    Yall need to remember, making or accomodating these changes is not like flipping a switch. Because if your name changes, and you want the new name to still reference stuff from your old name, then you have to write lines of code to track and update every reference of your old name so it can apply/ append the information to the new name as it relates to the tables in the database. That is why it is easier to just create a new name and a new profile. I know as an end user, it is easy to make requests not knowing how much time and labor goes into making these changes. Just to make a point, and I know it may ruffle some feathers... If you want these changes, we need to have more board supporters ($10/yr) to help pay the guys working behind the scenes to keep the site running. Believe me, I run and manage servers, and it is no picnic when things go wrong, and programming can be very labor intensive. Just my spill.

    This is a educating post. If there is a lot of work involved then of course it is a stupid waste of time and creating a new one is what I will do.

    On another forum I post on the admins had the ability to do a name change "at the flick of a switch" but perhaps the admins of that forum have the feature available to them. I dont know?

    So thats why I was requesting, if its easy then please! but if it is a pain in the ass I will create a new one forsure


    thanks for checkin into it though guys

    This is incorrect. VBulletin (The software this site runs) has the ability to go into the user panel of the admin console and change anyone's user name, which will propagate through the MySQL database. It is a very simple task, but also realize you do it for one person, then everybody will start wanting it, making the tasks daunting.

    you could charge a few bucks for it then and only allow 3 name changes in total. A small fee of 3-4 bucks won't kill anyone

    I'm glad to hear that its that simple... since this is happening more and more, at least it's not labor intensive, but I'd still recommend the ones that do get their name changed to contribute to the board by making a sponsorship donation or go gold, thrust me its worth it. this board is superb!

    I apologize for my misinformation. The point I was trying to convey was that it can be tedious if every tom **** or harry decided that they wanted to make the name change. Hence, my suggestion that we need more board supporters (a whopping 10 bucks a yr) to help maintain the site. I work in the IT industry so I know how expensive it can be sometimes to mananage web sites. There is constant upgrades, patches etc that have to be applied to keep things running smoothely.

    Yeah it is it is a pre-built application. The thing is that V-bulletin should already have this option. It should be in the User CP so that the user can change his own display name, but it is disabled by the site admin. It can be enabled, but that would be pointless IMO. Either that, or VB hasn't added this module yet. I am sure it will be added in later versions if it hasn't been already.

    That wouldnt be implimented for the end user. If the user has a ton of posts, that is just to many queries to the SQL database.

    Oh no doubt man... I fully agree. Running IT is expensive... especially since every two years or so you need to tech refresh.

    Unless the reason is extreme, we don't change names. Ask Jayhawkk, he is getting flooded with requests with something he can't do and I'm ignoring him.

    Oh on that DBZ movie, I looked at the trailer, I think it is pure garbage. They probably would have done a better job doing an animated movie, like they did with the one where the guy had to play that flute to calm the demon. And is Vegeta gonna be in this movie, they have piccolo looking like something from power rangers. Sorry for my soap box moment. I might need to start a thread in the GC forum.

    this would be annoying too! everyone on here gets to know the names of certain members, keeping track of who's who when their name changes would be troublesome enough!

    I get confused some times when someone changes their avitar...let alone if they changed their name
