View topic - site changes I'm not aware of?
Today I had the idea of changing my nickname (username?) for a while. "A while" means just a day or so. I knew it was possible because I'd already done it ("tanuki" isn't the name I registered with). So, I went to "edit profile", but, surprise!, it can't be done. Or at least that's what it looks like, because the name is like written in stone and I can't see any way to change it.
Has that changed? Aren't we allowed to change our username now?
Well, that's one thing. I created a new account, but when I logged in with the new account I saw something weird in the shoutbox. I wasn't allowed to shout! I mean, there was no blank box to write, just the shouts of other people were there. I think it was perfectly possible for new members to shout, because I've seen a number of new members introducing themselves there. Has that changed as well, aren't new members allowed to shout now?
The weird thing is that I was able to shout, but that's because I had windows opened with the account "tanuki". I mean, in those windows the blank box was still there. But when I shouted and the page refreshed, the shout appeared (with the new account) and the blank box wasn't there anymore.
I hope you have understood me. Bye!
EDIT: AAAHHHH!!! My avatar isn't working! I'm using the same picture I used before, what's wrong?
Hahaha, nice, "rrr"s are appearing everywhere!

that is correct, scallywags can no longer change usernames on a whim. and the shout shouldn't have worked but there was a little bug (now fixed P), just a corner-case in the many things possible that hadn't been taken into account.

(because of some spam abuse and people changing names to try to fool people into thinking they aren't the original offenders)
