Okay, what is a .tld? I looked it up on Wiki and still don't undertand what you mean. Do you mean no one should have a username like mysite.com or mysite.net? I don't think that should be allowed either because it's cheesy. They should adopt the same practice at vb.com.

Thanks for that.

I just had mine changed.

Worried, just pm the admin if you would like your username to be changed.

So what led to the change in policy? Just curious from an admin standpoint. A lot of boards allow it, but I've always been strict about name changes on my forum whereas I'm pretty loose about most everything else.

I think he has it setup for 3 months

Anyways, this might help those trying to hide from a scam or something by changing their names.

We changed it now because we decided to re-evaluate our policy on it.

As the notice says, once every three months *but* the admins have final say. If someone comes back to change it every three months, we may finally just say they've done it enough and it's time to just settle on a name and leave it. I really can think of no reason why someone would need to change it every three months.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.
