Name changes?

Name changes?

Ok so I do not want to be rude but I think we, as the Cb, need to talk about name changes. Obviously name changes are 100% ok and that is ok. But I feel like people are being very confusing about changing their names/changing them way too much. It is getting very confusing and stressful, especially since I am not on everyday and do not check every thread so I do not usually catch when people are changing their names. Some people have been changing their names a little too often and it is starting to become ridiculous and very confusing for everyone else.

So I think we should make some rules. I think that when you officially chnage your name, you must make a thread about it. Next, I think you should have to keep that new name for a minimum of a month. If everyone follows these guidelines I think things will be much less confusing.

Thanks!!

Alrighty-that should work! By the way, I am not a name changer, but just started Chatterbox recently. I, Neverseen, am new to Cricket Country!

Maybe for the first couple days or weeks after you change your name, you could add something at the bottom of your comments that says " *your new name*, formly *your old name* ".

I totally agree to this! Also, maybe if someone changes their name, if they made a thread they could also say their pronouns just to remind people, because sometimes I get confused about pronouns, and I would never want someone to get hurt by people calling them the wrong ones.

Thanks!

That sounds fair. Also, I second the pronoun thing, especially if you are changing your name.

I don't think that there should be a rule to not change it for a while and if someone can't find the right name it's okay but for a couple weeks after at least they should but their old one in parentheses in the location/age boxes.

I agree with Feli.

I agree with the thread thing but sometimes it takes some time to find the right name. I was at first a name I don't want to mention, then Princess Juniper then Miss Autumn then Princess Juniper. Sometimes I even think of changing to Verity which was a close runner up. I also agree with Feli.
