    Exclamation Name changes

    Assalamu alaykum,

    I just wanted to note that there seems to be an extremely high proportion of people requesting name changes...some regularly.

    Can we just make it crystal clear here.

    Name changes are NOT a given norm, they are ONLY in exceptional circumstances.

    If you want to change you name to MASK your identity, so to speak, sorry but that is not a valid excuse. Anyone can browse your history of posts and see your orginal name quoted. so it is better to resign up with a new name rather than change the existing one.

    If it is a spelling error...BE CAREFUL when you are signing up!

    If it because its similar to someone elses...TOO BAD, you should have checked it out first before signing up!

    If it is a matter of life and death...we may look into it.

    Otherwise STOP requesting name changes to lame and fickle reasons! Its a waste of everyone's time!

    And if you are a long time user, it is even more disliked because your username will be established and it causes a lot of confusion amongst the mods and users having a newname to that old user!!

    Please feel free to add any other commenst to this mods/ admins lol..this is just off the top of my head
    What does 'freedom' mean?

    Does the eagle want to swim in the sea,
    Restricted by the sky?

    Does the fish want to dance on the wind,
    Not enough river to explore?

    Yet the sky is freedom for the bird
    but death for the fish,

    The sea is wide for the fish
    but will engulf the bird.

    We ask for freedom but freedom to do what?
    We can only express our nature as it was created.

    The prayer mat of the earth is freedom,
    freedom from slavery to other than the One,
    Who offers an shoreless ocean of love to swim in
    and a horizon that extends to the next life,
    Yet we chose the prison and call it freedom.

    Re: Name changes

    just a polite reminder as we're getting an increase in these lately.

    you choose Oreos4TheWin, you will stay Oreos4TheWin, even if you find out you're gluten intolerant and can no longer eat them :l
    name changes because they don't fit your aesthetic either, won't be accepted.
    funny names that make other users giggle won't be changed (depends if it goes into bullying- which is really not the case tbh). Neither will pun-ny usernames.

    The only change is if you put your full name in there i.e. KhalidMotala or AbdullahDawson- something that can easily pinpoint you down. Usually common first names alone, don't come under that esp if you are a Muhammad from Saudi Arabia, a John from the West Midlands or a Pierre from Montreal.

    Only admins can do that.

    But from the reasons you mentioned above I don't think they'd change your name, so I'd just accept it for now.

    You probably won't get your name changed, unless you have a valid reason.


    If it makes you feel better, along with those who have been denied, I've wanted my name changed for a long time but got denied as well.

    You actually opine not wanting a username sounding like a kid or a mocking bird seems. Invalid reason?

    I protest &others too .

    Anyways,I'm an unspecified gender& another species, but protests should be collaborated when everyone has same problems with rulers of Ummah forum
