    Name changes.

    Allow it so other moderators can change names.

    At the moment, only Sunshine can(?) and I've been waiting for a name change for almost 3 months now.

    Any admin can, but we've all been extremely busy the last few weeks, so there are a lot of people waiting for name changes.

    The good news is that we've got a site update coming which will allow everyone to change their own names! I'm told it should be deployed sometime on Monday, so keep an eye out.

    Yeah, I don't know what I was thinking when I made the name of this account. This name change is a welcomed addition.
    But question: will it have unlimited use? I hope not, because then it might it confusing to know who is who.

    I'd assume a set number of times a month, maybe per year though.

    What I'd love is the ability to customize titles. Either going back to the original ones you had, or making completely new ones.

    Yeah, there will be a cooldown to change a name (we're still discussing exactly how long), and you'll have your previous name reserved for a certain period of time so that people can't troll by stealing your old name and pretending to be you.

    I believe you should be able to change it now if you go into Settings --> Edit Profile

    I'd like to boil down to a choice, not a rehash

    Woot, thought about asking for this change a couple of years ago when I realized it wasn't used but ended up forgetting all about it for some reason.
