Given recent events, forum management has had to crack down on multiple account abusers. Previously, I admit, we sometimes turned a blind eye to it in the past. I realize we mods will get criticized no matter what we do in this regard. Suffice it to say that we have recently adopted a zero tolerance policy towards multiple accounts. In the case of this new rule, we don't respect precedents as a reason to violate it.

I have to disagree with you on this one. I take it that rule was to prevent shenanigans and confusion?

We can all see this is a totally different situation. The guy has a legitimate reason since he is a BJ dealer using his real name.

He is new with only a few posts and it looks like he truly didn't know any better at the time. Perhaps he wants to tell us some casino stories, but cant open up like he would want to. Or maybe he realized, people be crazy on this forum, and using his name and his picture wasn't the best idea.

It's not like this happening behind the scenes where some guy has been posting for months where some of the forum members had no clue. Its all out in the open.

If ever there was going to be any exceptions to the rules, I think in this would qualify. I think 99% of the members here would not have an issue with it, or think its unfair.

I know you are probably thinking, if I do it for one member, I will have to do it for others. This sounds like something you should decide on a case-by-case basis. Perhaps moving forward you can have a notation when people are signing up to chose their forum name wisely since no changes will be made.

P.S. I know, I know, if we don't like it (-;

The entire second half of my initial response that you quoted makes it clear I had already read it. When I say ďwhat you quotedĒ in a response to wizards post in quotation. I just had hoped that that they would be more respectful of members privacy in this case.

There really isnít any point in either of us addressing each other anymore I think either way between you and I darkoz.



What the hell? U r seeming a bit extreme right now. Did we have some old argument i cant remember? U cant be upset over one post such as the above

EDIT: just reread it and no it was not clear

When you start with "maybe you can pm a mod" that indicates you had not read the wizards response or are mods here regularly overriding the wizards decisions.

Here is what it says on the sign-up page where it asks you to choose a user name. This wording was added about a month ago.

Quote: Sign up page

Please choose your screen name very carefully. Whatever you pick, you will be stuck with. We cannot change screen names and strictly do not allow multiple accounts. If you wish to remain anonymous, we highly recommend you choose a screen name that is in no way associated with your identity, especially the prefix of an Email address you use. We hear from members all the name with screen name remorse. Sorry, there is nothing we will do about it. So please think long and hard about your screen name choice. Thank you.



I agree that in this case the member has a valid reason for the request. However, if we grant it, we'll get other requests quoting it as a precedent. It is a slippery slope I don't want to go down, especially after some recent events I don't want to rehash. Besides, I don't see what is so complicated about picking a user name and sticking with it.

Donít sweat it, Iíll deal with it on my end, sorry for snapping over nothing.

I suppose at this point its moot

If the wizard did grant the name change the op is going to be the BJ dealer who used to go by..

In other words any value from stories he has to tell anonymously is already ruined aa his identity is already outed

Like Donnie Brasco going back into the mafia with a new name. Not gonna work
