Sorry we cannot do name changes, and when I say cannot, the software wont allow it at the moment, the new software is almost in beta stage so either be patient or make a new account.

Apologies if I misread your post but are you implying that with the new software you will be allowing name changes? And also, is the next software version going to be v1.5, 2 or something different?

Well the new software Gtaforums is going to use is V1.5 and it will be built on pre existing software but not IPB. I believe name changes won't be allowed in V 1.5 although technically it's possible since the Admin CP should be fine again. After V 1.5 we will see V2 which is being made from scratch by Tank (The founder) and I believe only then name changes will be allowed again when V2 is released (Since that's what written on his signiture). Expect GTANet V 1.5 to come around later this year and V2 in the next couple of years.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but I'm guessing we will allow name changes limited to once a year, possibly at the user level (meaning without having to ask an admin). Obviously we can't allow users to change their names willy nilly, otherwise a lot of people will just change them every day and it'll be hard to know who is who.

On a side note, I personally never understood why so many people fret over their user names. I've kept the same dumbass name for over a decade now and I honestly couldn't care less what anyone thinks about it. /.02
