Username changing and you!

Sat Jan 7, 2012, 8:48 PM
I recently posted a forum thread here about people's thoughts on username change. I find that a lot of them would like it, but know that deviantART has openly stated that they will not transfer anyone's content over.

Relatively recently, Xehara, a deviant who wants to change her username posted a deviantART Suggestion here which got a Daily Deviation. I was a suggester, which shows that I am in full support of this idea.

On this Suggestion, I commented the following:

"I like this suggestion, but I know that dA's thing is that they don't want to confuse people by having people's profile links broken. So, I was thinking that instead of putting your old username back open for anyone to get, you pay the fee to have it disabled and whenever someone goes to that link, it redirects to your new page (like with Skittleboi redirecting to Josh)!"

You can see the comment thread here.

This is my official post and opinion on username change.

Please favourite this article if you are in support of my words so more that share your opinion may find it easily.

My opinions and thoughts on username changing.

How did this feature pass the quality control?

By changing your username, you're pretty much WASTING another one.

Mine sounds like a fantasy character's name. I thought it sounded cool and I just made this account so I can't make myself change it. I think I want a more professional name.

Please forgive this ole bird lateness on her response (10 days) while yes I do support this suggestion/ideal because I myself have added numerous interest as well.

In my case though I decided to put everything in one gallery instead of having different ones place explanations in my folders and go from there...
