Well the objective is not to make it an earned thing, where it will impede on members ability to get one whenever they want. I know I always found it annoying when foru,s did such things, I mean it takes less than 30 seconds to do, it's easy to do, so it is not like you should be charged a terrible lot for it.

It is just something for people to spend their points on, not something that must be earned before it can be done (like having to post up to get 25 points).

I tought for now, one free change, others ~ 5 - 15 points.

It is easy, but hard for users to see who is who if someone change nicks every few days, as per one tutorial you got 8 points... (or 7, I'm not sure)

Well under the current system. Once the proposed new system is made out and implemented it will be 1 point per post and 2 per topic. Therefore, it is easily obtainable, maybe we can bring it up to 4 or 5, but that is about as high as one can comfortably for the time being, I mean we're not terribly active. Once we more activity and active registered members, then maybe, yeah we can consider bumping it up to 10, 15, 20 maybe even 25 or 30. Activity I think should go up 1st. Just my thoughts on this.

Okay, I see your point, brandon_g. True, it's easy to do, but we don't want users changing their username every 10 minutes. Smile

But yeah, we need to increase activity and give ATF a new look & style before we delve into these little details. Let's focus on that first.

Well, if users start changing their usernames every 10 minutes then there is a simple solution: put a username change limit of some sort.

Or just have moderately-priced usernames?

Right now no username is worth that much. It is across the board.
