I'm dead to me.

Not a pony, but a question about username changes, or lack thereof. [more inside]

Attention: Per this thread, I have relinquished my puppet account, Voice of God.
It is now run by a long-time lurker who wishes to remain nameless. [MI]

suspicions of transfered username

I have my suspicious that a recently more prolific username is being used by someone other than the original registrant. Are we even concerned about people giving or possibly selling thier usernames?

Change Username Please

I wouldn't be able to get my username changed from 'ewwgene' to 'eww,gene!', would i? When i signed up, i didn't realize that one could use commas and exclamation points when i signed up.

If this will 'open the floodgates' so to speak, dont bother. :)

confusion among similar-looking usernames

Back when I was a regular on the #jeopardy IRC channel, I'd occasionally use the nickname a1exbot to cause confusion with alexbot. Oh, it was great fun. But efaper's attempt to create a straw man's troll for efader is less cool.

Probably no way to counter this. Maybe user profiles can have a born-on date like so many bottles of Bud? This way, old-timers can get the cred they deserve (teehee!), and it can be clear whether a username had been generated that morning for immoral purposes.
