Display name change
«: October 04, 2012, 04:04:51 AM»
I'm not sure if this belongs here, but I was trying to change my display name to one of my alt's name, Lyncher. I've owned this alt for quiet awhile now and I had been wanting to change my display name to it for weeks. But when I went to try and change it, it said that someone else had it. They haven't been active in years, is there anyway to get my display name to be Lyncher instead of them having it? I would love to have my alt as my display name. ;c

Lyncher had been created on: 2011-07-26/20:32:40/Tue

The last time they have even been on this site: Last Active: June 14, 2008, 02:04:55 PM

Sorry, but no.
The account does show use, despite it's inactivity, we do not delete an account unless the user themselves requests it.

It's still in use? How is that possible? Sorry, I just didn't know you could still use an account even if it's been so inactive.

By "in use," she means it has posts on it and alts listed. We do not delete or purge accounts that have activity on them, even during our (rare) mass purges.

I'm only mean out of necessity.

Every once in a while, Narnia will delete accounts that have no posts or alts listed and have been around for x amount of days.

I don't know the exact numbers, as we have done one in a long, long time.

Unless you can somehow get ahold of them, yes. Sorry.
