Suggestion: Change Username  Topic is solved

Postby Skyye » Thu Aug 11, 2016 3:40 am

Well I thought that if a user is dissatisfied with their chosen username (like mine hehe) then we could at least have the option to change them by requesting it on a thread like on PFF (Pottermore Fan Forum)? :mrgreen:

The problem with username changes it that it becomes difficult to recognise people. It's why I'm not a fan of it.

I'm considering making it possible with a small donation (small being $1). That way the user has to be completely sure they want to change their username, since they're spending actual money on it (even if it's just a very small amount).

Anyone have any thoughts on this matter?

I support the $1 fee idea for a name change, or at least some alternative that really makes a user think about it. Perhaps a large ammount of galleons as another option? EX: $1 or 2,000 galleons or something simillar? Just spitting out random numbers at the moment, if the ideas well liked we cant figure out a real number.

I see your point Rhynn! I think a dollar donation's good and for those who can't donate a high galleon price! Or maybe a cooldown? like you could only change username for once a year? Or maybe both: donation/highprice galleon payment + cooldown?

I'm not a fan of cool-downs personally :-? At least not incredibly long ones but I'd like to hear Rhynn's and other's opinions... Maybe if we changed it to every 3 or 6 months?

Perhaps a somewhat complicated system, but:

There are two ways of paying for a name-change:
-$1 payment (not a donation, so no donation perks once we have them)
-High Galleon price

When paying with Galleons, it is not possible to change usernames again by paying with Galleons until at least a month has passed. However, changing usernames by paying $1 is always possible (multiple times in a day if the user so wishes).

If people want it enough to pay actual money for it, then sure, I'll allow it however many times they wish.

I'm really late to comment on this but I wanted to throw my thoughts out there as well.

I like Rhynn's idea but I think one month between changes (with Galleons) might be a little soon. I'd say two or three months between changing it with Galleons. However, I'm not opposed to the one month between, I just feel like it might be too often, even with a high price. I'm just thinking about if someone changes their name every month just because they can. Either way, I think it is a good system. :D

The $1 payment to change your username whenever you want I think is good. It helps the site plus they get what they want. :)
