modify username

Post by asel »

Hi,
On the undernet now you can`t modify your username name.
A simple command or someting like that to be make ?

/msg x makeuser <newuser_name> <old_username> <yourpassword>

So if you don`t like your user any more and you whant to change it you don`t must to make a new one and ask peoples to give your access back on the new user.
To make more then one user is not allowed so this is a simple solution to change it.

This seems a little extreme to me.

Most people go through life with the same name.

On IRC you can easily change your name (nick).

Why would anyone need to continually change his username?

Just seems like a frivolous request to me.

I'm sorry but Undernet designed the Usernames system so that they can not to be changed. This obviously means your request would break that design, and therefore is not a change Undernet will make.
