Personally... I'm against Username Change.... My humble opinion is that someone should change a username only if they have very strong reasons for doing so (like..  they absolutely hate the name or chose something in a hurry during registration and regret it now... something like that).

IF is not a chat room, it's a forum. Some restrictions should be in place. Frequent username change would make it very difficult to know who I'm interacting with. Also, losing track of people I know is a big concern. For example, there are certain people who's threads I find very interesting, and I always try to read them and post comments. If I'm not here for couple of months and someone has changed names then it becomes very inconvenient.

To sum it up, I'm against Username change as it will upset the way people interact with each other. Exceptions can be made through Admin reviews. Thanks for reading  :)

i think it shouldnt be alllowed as it will create lot of problems for members and also coz a lot of problem while pming members too...
but i Do not mind if it is allowed once in every 6months...but once in 6 months that should be the max and this option should be limited to fewer groups on IF....may be not newbies and groupie.......once after member are goldie this option should be opened to them
