Changing your forum name question?

I sent all the admins a request to change my forum name but it still hasnt happened. How long does it usually take for this type of request to be granted?? I sent it like a week ago.... Thanks for the help!

Good luck. I have been trying since February. They have their favorites and ignore everyone else.

The admins do alot to keep this site running, changing members names is not at the top of their list to keep the site running. Sorry.

considering the fact that they don't sign on as frequent as most of us. I've emailed 5 admins and still nothing, must be a ton load of crap they all must be doing, but thanks for your help mod! all I ask is one simple change in forum name and ill be on my way, I don't ask for much and im willing to contribute(pay 15 bucks) to this site but if I don't get anything in return then what's the point?

Read that and then consider how much FREE tech you have gotten off this site before you spout off about not getting anything for your 15 dollars.

Yea i read that... I talked to most the contributors and they tell me "good luck getting your sticker."

I dont care if i opened a can of worms. All im asking is one freaking change of name and you guys have to give me smart a$$ answers. Yea i get free tech off this site but all i want is a name change. And dude for all the free **** i get off this site, im willing to contribute more. But thanks for your hospitality sir!

only admins have the power to change names, and since they aren't on much, theres no telling when a name change will happen.


Its not their fault you don't like your original name

I know this Scott, thanks. I want to change it for obvious reason's....

A honda name on a ranger forum just doesn't look right... I want to change my name more suited for this website. I know this is an Admins power only, so thats why i asked only Admins to change my name.

Sorry, i really didnt mean for you guys to go off on me in this post but all i wanted was a simple answer of how long does it usually take.... I didnt bash anyone or didnt harm anyone, just asked a simple few questions and all i wanted was a respectful answer.

Integra, You never thought you would get a ranger? lifted97, you thought you would have a 97 forever? It is laughable how short sighted you were when registering for the site.
