    You came on as Kermit and have played the part well. I prefer you this way. I don't think I'd like you changing yourself.

    The few changes we have had lately are all fine but I hope it doesn't start a whole movement of members wanting to change their identity.

    I do have a question, why aren't we able to do it ourselves, via profile edits?

    Because it would be confusing as hell to people reading threads, especially those that don't visit every week or month. People wouldn't be able to remember who's who. You see a name and associate a personality with it.

    It was a month before I figured out who Beach was. I guess it would be okay to give a member a limit of one change over the life of their membership.

    The main issue is that if people could change nicknames at random, then it could get very hard for people to keep track of who is who, especially for new folks.

    On the technical side there are possible database issues to deal with if something goes wrong, etc. Posts getting lost, logins not working, what have you.

    Lastly you have the extra work placed on the mods/admin in having to deal with something like a name change.
