    Well, this has been requested by many users for whatever reason they may have in doing so, but in order to change your username - you would have to ask me, @electric_blue_kirbyelectric_blue_kirby @EvolutionEvolution or @MichiMichi and we'll be glad to change your username - and of course, the username that want it change to can't be taken or we can't do it.


    Or, if you want your username changed - you can request it in this thread as well.

    Thank you :3

    Not actually seen this on a site!

    I wish petsites would let you change username! It's a pain when you get stuck with one you hate xD

    It's a pain for pet sites to do because it would require to update a lot of tables involved with the username. Forum posts, items, pets, referrals, etc.. It would be a good cash shop option though lol

    Can I have my name changed to Direwing? I would rather have just Mio with the one 'i', but it appears to be taken. xD

    @cpvrcpvr - Is it okay to ping/mention? I figured it was important enough because I have a message in the help queue right now about my account & registering problems. Can I get mine changed to Misfit? This was connected through my Facebook - I sent in a report about not being able to register, and figured why not try the FB Platform? Well, I can access the site now, but I don't want my FB name plastered everywhere (especially considering I like to keep it private).

    Thanks, you're a lifesaver! You guys can ignore my request in the queue then, if you haven't got to it already (it's under Registration Problems), as this is obviously solved. You're great.
