    Just shows how good we have it here at ca.org

    Now,
    I don't post much at this forum, I came across it about a year ago or so and just post occasionally. www.renderosity.com Though I think it's funny because I e-mailed the Admin to see if I could have my username changed: Something you would think is simple and something that can be done here at ca.org if you ask the right person

    At any rate this was the reply and link I got, kinda lame:
    "Yes, we do have a username change service, which you can purchase here:"
    Name/User Change link info $10!!!

    With everything that Ca.org provides here for free it's just a constant reminder why I stick to this forum over any other...and all the new content rumored that we're still awaiting to be implemented.

    I love their selling phrase, brilliant:

    Sometimes it is difficult to decide what you want your username to be. If you would like a different member/username, now you can have it. Simply purchase this member/username change.

    "Sometimes it is difficult to decide what you want your username to be. If you would like a different member/username, now you can have it. Simply purchase this member/username change."

    I would like to change my name to MikeCorriero, please. What is the exchange rate of 10$US to YAP Stone?

    Or it could be a deterrent against "name-hopping", some forums, for example, don't allow you to start a new topic unless you have already some replies in other topics. This tends to reduce the amount of spam a bit.

    If your online identity is worth so much then you could have thought about your user-name before starting to post there, or pay the 10$. If t is not worth that much then just get a new account.

    My guess is that it helps with keeping the administrative work simple.

    Basing the financial success of your online/web company on a name changing feature seems rather optimistic.

    But it probably helps with paying the bandwidth and server bills.

    CGtalk.com and Conceptart.org are the only good havens around. Everything else requires subscriptions or fees ... or worse a board will no one above extreme beginner levels.
