I've enabled the change display name feature. Right now users are limited to 3 changes in a 7 day period. I will change those numbers when I start seeing how responsibly (or not) the feature is used. The idea is that you don't need to be stuck with the same display name for all of your existence here. BUT, you need to keep only ONE login/account.

I think along with this we should consider have the mods do a harsher crackdown on multiple accounts per user.

What do you guys think of this?

"Harsher crackdown on multiple accounts per user." I don't think that's an issue anymore unless you're talking about getting rid of all the old and now unused names. I do like being able to change ones name display, after ten years of the same name it's about time for something new.

Follow @McWoggie to the gates of Hell. We're gonna ding-dong ditch them!

there seems to be an objective reality that a determined individual can penetrate if he is willing to challenge the confining chimeras of markets and machines

It was written that I should be loyal to the nightmare of my choice
