    can you change your ca.org username?

    I looked everywhere I could think of before asking this, but, is there a way to change your username on ca.org without starting a new account? I'm starting to get work and I just want to change it from my old e-mail name to my real name (Michael Jaecks), which is also going to be the domain name of my website when thats done.

    thanks for the help.

    You can't change it, but it can be changed. An admin will have to do it for you (if they feel like it )

    Be careful what you ask for...I asked once and they renamed me "Embalmed Senile Cat Turd." Cost me $20 and the box of polaroids I took at that CA "business trip" last year...

    Well I PMed someone so we'll see what happens. If it gets changed to "Flatulence," blame the red bear. Or bar as the case may be.

    But you can't register a new account with the same email-address. so you'll also have to get a new mail-account. which sucks, i think.

    it does save you from incuring the ire of an admin irritated by pointless requests.

    edit: HOLY CRAP!

    if an admin's reading this, while you're at it, can you change my name to DARKRAV3N_DAM0NWARR10RZ_34? Exo is only three letters and now that I think about it, it doesn't sound baddass at all.

    I thought my name was ok, until I went to the workshop. Having a one syllable name sucks. I constantly was wondering if someone was addressing me, or was just coughing or something.

    Oh well. Can't win em' all. My previous user name was shared by another non-CA web artist who draws ELF PORN.

    How do you even say it? I look at it and want to pronounce it as "Ryan". Or is it more like "Rin"?

    lol what is with some of you people. You've only got like 300 posts at the most and you already want your name changed? lol that's the sort of thing that pisses them off and why most messageboards don't give name changes. Once on person wants it changed then everyone does.

    I just want mine changed to reflect the kinds of work I'll be doing from here on out. I'll still use Saikin on other forums and Kidd175 for some as well, it's just that this isn't the forum for those names. So, Jester reflects my personality and art style that will soon develop in the next 15 years

    "Rin", you got it. Though a lot of people just end up mis-reading it and saying "Ryan" anyway.

    ... what does the username matter anyways? People will like your work (or not), whatever name's associated with it.. even if you're "WarmAirThatStinks" (or maybe especially if you're..)

    who cares..
