Some Egyptian hieroglyphics type shiz.

 

Nah Arab. Finn's probably having a tour of Saudi Arabia and seems to be really liking it.

 

Hopefully he didn't change his real-life name.

I would imagine Finn to be in Austria trying to sniff out Arnold's scent.

I really wish there wasn't any limit to name changes, because I can think of about a hand full of names I would use right now, lol.

Looks like the username font doesn't support the character "ś".

 

Can you change this to an "s" please?

Heath messed up one of the letters in his name too and he's stuck with the name for a year, I'm guessing the same applies to you unfortunately.

Small question here but what if my preferred username is already registered by someone who hasn't logged in since 2002? http://gtaforums.com/user/754-bender/

 

Can you just flush him down the toilet delete his account?

^ Even though there is a very minimal chance of these sorts of people returning. This isn't done, I think it should be done though. Because I doubt these people even remember the password to that account and if they choose to return it would be on a new account. 

 

But there's still a chance they could return so I'm guessing no one wants to risk anything. Try "Bender."

Excuse me.... Does this name change have anything to do with these empty names?

One thing's for sure, changing your display name hasn't caused that.

Are you using any in-browser applications/add-ons?

Well, I'm using Avast Online Security, Google Docs, etc if that's what you mean...

I didn't change my display name btw..

So I think it's only my browser?

GTAGarage is glitchy nowadays so probably that's why names won't diplay.

I don't understand why so many people were complaining to be honest.

I want to change my name as well, but I can patiently wait for these 2 months to be over so I can change it.

For all the other people waiting to change their username. Does having your current username for an extended period of time in anyway affect the way you go about on these forums?

People were complaining back in October so I don't even see why you had to say all that..

Try clearing you cache and cookies, see if that fixes it :^:

If not...

This is probably the reason for it as the staff on GTAGarage don't appear themselves on the staff list.

So Unoriginal Gangster got a name change even though he didn't even wait for a year after changing it to 'Unoriginal Gangster' from 'Prominent Fate' the first time around? Considering he didn't even wait 6 months let alone a year, mods should allow members who haven't been here for a year to change their name.

You'll have to live with it for the time being. If they make an exception for one a second member, everyone with a newer account would come clamoring to them for an exception to be made in their case too because they also want an early name change.

Admins will make an exception for whomever they please. The same you would do for a dear friend, it happens.

 

Just goes to show that when you make an account, choose a proper name.. not some FamilyGuyFan4E or something along those lines.

That's a very good reason considering Girish denied me an exception and said firmly no exceptions would be made. I doubt there is a valid reason for Unoriginal Gangster's exception either.

 

It's quite unfair for the mods to deny an exception for someone and go out of their way to give an exception to someone else. If you want to deny it for one person, deny it for everyone.

There actually is a valid reason. He's a staff member now and rules like these do not apply to staff members. It's just one of the perks of no longer being just a puny member.

 

Bottomline is that unless you're a part of the staff ladder, you have no rights and can make no demands (which our rules explicitly state) and until then, you'll have to abide by whatever rules we enforce, like everyone else.

Shame I'll probably never change my name :/ That perk would be useful if I'd mess up.

Just think of it this way. There is no way you could come up with a worst name than Finn4life did..
