This. Stop ranting AceKingston. It's fair enough. They can't make exceptions for you. The community rules clearly state that you're not allowed to make demands.
You guys are too damn impatient. All this while you complained about not being to change your names and now that the feature has been made available, you're complaining about the wait being too long. I'm pretty sure if we allow name changes twice a year, you'll be back here within a couple of weeks saying six months is too long.
The current restrictions are absolutely fine. I don't see any reason to change them for members who have been here for less than a year, irrespective of whether or not they had an account before.
I was ranting? That's news to me, also I've gone through the rules more than you have thank you very much.
One rule from the Policy Impact made in 2004 was quite simply:
- No flaming (Antagonistic, slanderous, racist, or sexist comments will not be tolerated)
Claiming ArchKnight hasn't read the rules as much as you have sounds to me as if you are criticizing/going against him as a member and the posts he has made - this is considered Antagonistic. Sometimes its best to keep opinions to yourself
