User names may be changed only with approval of Admn /Dev team.If this puts a heavy burden on them no change should be allowed.

 If a change is allowed members should be told about old and new user names so that they may know who is re-appearing with new name.

Sometimes people have a change of heart, or they want to use their real name or some sentimental phrase and they should be able to change it, but hopefully not every five minutes.

There is already so many confusing and similar sounding ids floating...... plus so many members getting banned and coming back on IF is  very difficult if everyone change their ids  you got to remember "who was who" Wacko....
Anyways, let democracy decide !!!
@Vijay, I have huge problem with some ids that are disturbing and should not have been here coz its a universal forum. Has IF got any filters inplace for choosing user names? Words like  "Kill" should be banned  in user names.....
Where will my favoirite IF addict list appear againCry

well i selected that members should b allowed every 6 months....but i reckon that there should be a limit.....say each member is allowed to change their username 3/4 times....when they have changed it for the 3rd/4th time then they shouldn't be allowed to change it again.....
i know it kinda confuses ppl when members change their usernames so i think this is a good idea 2 stop tht

I think letting members change their users should be allowed, but not so frequent like everyday!

Every 6 months sounds good to me!
But I also think that it should be approved by the Modz/I-F Team because lots of people are making users that bash characters from shows and that really hurts fans!

For example, in the DMG forum, people who hate Shilpa Anand make users with names like ShilpaSucks and I think that's VERY offending to fans!
