Am I the only person who will spend the next three months in a haze because of the name changing amnesty?

I think its a good idea, I've even taken advantage of it before. But gosh, it gets SO confusing. Especially when those who've had their names changed, also change their signatures and avatars. I lose people when this happens. At the moment, I've still not figured out which of the Penguin people is which.

I've only changed my name once to what it is now from GDICommando, since I usually go by MercZ in other forums. Complications kept me from doing that from the get-go. I just added Commissar to stretch things.

That's why people are encouraged to write 'Previously known as xxx' in their usertitle where 'xxx' is their last name.

I've always used this same name on every forum and most games. Go me.

As Sir Revenge has said, and as I have done. Personally, I think that people who want their name changed *should* have the "Formerly / Previously known as xxx" as their usertitle for a month or two. Think of it as a condition or something? It makes things easier for everyone else too.

Indeed. Changing names doesn't make it any easier when I have problems in remembering some people already even though they have been somewhat long in the forums.

I'm content with my forum name, it's simple and people recognize it somewhat well (at least in the Pub).
