I must say...

...I just want to put this out there.

I logged on USP and saw something I do not approve of. I saw a new name on the moderator list and browsed a random thread to discover that Semfry is in fact MMAN.

Semfry, Buff Skeleton, Ividiotus...you guys are killing me! I can't remember all this new stuff... :(

...Just...be the people I used to know... :(

*plea*

euh??? and who are you??? :wink:

No, seriously I'm in 100% agreement here with Mister_Prophet. Aside from the fact that name changes are instantly confusing, the name change never trickles through in (or to) the past. TLF was made by Waffnuffly (I hope I spell this correct), in the 8th anniversary a guy named sana entered the competition and released a map, sana who? sana what?, I vaguely remember a name Qtit - something tells me he also took a different name.
If this continues I'm going to change my name to MamboQueen :x

omg Salsa. I immediately regret bringing it up :)

Serious note, I think the Unreal scene may be the only remaining community where I've kept this handle.

And it's because I care about history. Unlike some people...

no surprise, I was expecting it, unfortunately I haven't got the necessary permissions to change my boardname back to what it was and should remain :?
So I hope this joke will have a short lifespan, thx :tup:

I've never actually tried it. You can change it once with no problem, but need permission to do it again?

I understand your pain Proph, even though I changed my name a while back myself, there's just something very special and unique to the nicknames that people start out with (Waffnuffly pour example). Besides I only changed my name because people kept confusing me with my character (Captain John Clark) and I wanted to personalise myself, y'know?

Thx for fixing this (ividyon I think). Mind you, I appreciate the joke, but I wouldn't enjoy being the mamboQueen for too long

No, it's a permission setting. Simple registered users (standard group) have that permission turned off, the permission can be turned on, on a per user basis or with (certain) group membership. I suspect you (and Waff, Steadz, etc) have that permission (for self) through group membership (moderator permissions)
