How about a separate section for people who want to change their names... much like the top 5's I feel the threads become spam fests and an excuse for people to boost their post count.

Because as well as that I don't feel that they belong in the Games or General Xbox 360 areas?

Personally I think they should just be deleted. It seems like lately it's the in thing and it's starting to get old.

Fair enough...seems like a more hassle free option...

Agreed. It's also stupid to ask other people if they like your gamer tag. It's you tag, pick what you want. Don't worry about others opinions.

Actually it's quite a pain in the ass from an admins standpoint. They have to manually go to your usercp and change your name...for one person it's not a big deal, but when a lot of people start asking...it gets annoying.

Besides, it's a pain to log into the forums each day and see a new topic about someone who wants to change their name.

I changed my GT and I didn't ask. ;)

I dont mind people asking for others' opinions, but when 30 people all decide to change their tag and we have 30 different threads, it gets redundant.

I'd say maybe have a particular thread where people could ask for advice on what to change it to, but I'm pretty sure 90% of people would ignore it anyway, lol..

i know this thread is 2 weeks old but i had an idea and thought i'd add to this thread rather than start a new thread. I think that you should charge people to change their name - only like $1 or something and see how many would do change it then ;) (also if people really are that desperate to change then it'll bring site income :))

Peace

Pretty good idea actually, nice little way to bring some more money into the site.

We do name changes for subscribers if they want it- if someone has a donation award then there is more of a chance, but to be honest, in man hours, $1 doesnt nearly cover it :p
