I'd like to have the name Doofy, but this fellow has it.

Is there any way I can snatch it from him? I mean, it's not like he's coming back.

 

 

EDIT: Alternatively, could I take the name 'Durden' from this quitter right here?

Youll need to ask the staff about that. I have no idea what their policy is for taken names

I don't think you can. You'll need to consult an Admin/Senior Mod about it. I've never seen staff allow it before, but you could ask.

Thanks guys; should I seek one out right now to PM them, or just wait for them to come here?

How to ask something to them?

I'm pretty sure that's what he's trying to do by posting in Network Support guys ;)

 

We don't have a policy on it but I've seen it happen before, and as you said the accounts are completely dead. I don't see a problem but wait for a response from a moderator that can change names and see what they say.

You can always private message a staff member. Here's the complete list of all GTAForums Staff Members. You can PM anyone with the Moderator rank with your queries.

There are quite a number of moderators, but look for the ones closest to the join date being in 2002, it's when the forums opened and the mod closest to this date is more likely an Admin that can help you.

Only a select few moderators have special access to certain features of the admin cp.
