Name Changes for Regular Users
  • you may request a name change ONLY if you fulfill EITHER of these requirements:
    • you have 100 posts or more total;
    • your account is at least 3 years old.
  • by default, you only get 1 name change;
    • you must provide a REASON;
    • you may revert to your old name, but only after at least 3 months have passed, and you will be ineligible for future changes for an extended period of time;
    • removal of numbers or other distracting text (e.g. tennisace0227 -> tennisace) will not count as a name change;
      • you can't request to ADD distracting text or request a username that includes distracting text (or any unicode characters / characters that can't be typed on a conventional keyboard), that's completely counterproductive and makes it makes it more difficult to tag users.
    • you will not be eligible for any second changes until an extended period of time has passed since your first one; we reserve the right to judge the situation ourselves, no two are equal. There is a SMALL chance for an exception to made sooner if you seriously want a second name or regret an old change, etc. but it will be permanent and under no circumstances will it ever be changed again. ever. Include a link to your original name change request that you want to revert.
  • you may not get a name change if you have an active infraction, are Wi-Fi blacklisted, or are (circuit) tournament banned and may be rejected on a case-by-case basis if you have a poor history as a user;
  • you will receive a custom title with your former username so that others may identify you;
  • you may not take the username of an existing account under any circumstances;
  • new/alternate accounts are against the rules, so you will be infracted if you are caught creating one instead of using this thread.
Name Changes for Badgeholders
  • badgeholders - all of the above applies to you;
  • you may take the name of an existing account ONLY IF
    • the account with the username you want has not been logged into for 3+ years, AND
    • the account with the username you want has 10 visible posts or less.
  • OR
    • the account with the username you want has not been logged into for 10+ years, AND
    • the account with the username you want has 25 visible posts or less.
  • not all names are created equal, and we reserve the right to reject high-value names for users who have a low badgecount or are not very active;
  • if you take the name of an existing account, you won't be eligible for any future changes including reverts for the next 3 years.
    • extenuating circumstances always exist; if you feel you have a strong case for an exception (e.g. deadname, privacy concerns) then feel free to make your case and we'll listen, either in this thread or in PM to a smod+ if you're not comfortable.
Name Changes for Staff Members
  • staff members - all of the above applies to you;
  • HOWEVER, you are exempt to the 100 posts requirement, and you may receive an exception to the 10 posts rule on taking over existing accounts on a case-by-case basis, e.g. for uniformity across platforms;
  • "staff members" includes forum mods and above.
Name Changes for PS! Contributors
  • PS! contributors - you can claim the forum name to match your main PS account if you meet and provide PROOF of ALL of the following conditions:
    • you are at least GLOBAL VOICE on the sim;
    • you are at least ROOMMOD or higher in at least one PUBLIC room OR you are at least ROOMDRIVER in the DEVELOPMENT room;
    • you haven't had a namechange on the sim in the past 3 months (don't try to pull a fast one, we can check);
      • globally voiced roomdrivers are eligible on a case-by-case basis if it's been at least 3 months since their (re)promotion to roomstaff.
  • this ONLY applies to the name matching your globally voiced PS account; if you want a different forum name, then get a name change on the sim first and we can process your request after 3 months;
    • only EXACT matches qualify; e.g. you cannot claim the forum account "mari" if you do not both own and are using "mari" as your main PS account, "mari215" is not good enough.
  • you are exempt to the 100 posts requirement, and you can claim taken names, but only those that meet the regular inactivity requirements;
    • HOWEVER, similarly to forum staff members, as long as uniformity across platforms is observed, global staff and public room ROs can be given an exception to the 10 posts on a case-by-case basis, as well as to the 3 months waiting period for the sake of immediate consistency for higher-ranked staff.
Profile Changes:
  • you may request birth date and related information to be changed only once;
    • please submit any birth dates in an unambiguous format (e.g. Nov. 12th, 2000, not 11/12/00), we don't know whether your country uses DD/MM/YY or MM/DD/YY;
  • we will not fulfill avatar or custom title requests;
  • badges and banners are earned, not given.
General Rules:
  • LOOK UP THE USERNAME BEFORE YOU REQUEST IT, as from here on out, you are likely to be denied future name changes if you attempt to request a name that is taken (TIP: use the search function; enter the username you are looking for and PRESS ENTER, the username doesn't always appear in the dropdown... if you get redirected to the main members page, the name is free! if the profile DOES appear, you may NOT request it unless you are a badgeholder. you have been warned.
  • do NOT ask super moderators or admins on their profiles OR in private message to change your name or to check the thread or anything of the like, as the point of the thread is so that you may request and so that we will get to it when we have the time to do so;
  • joke requests will not be tolerated and we will infract you if you do it at this point, have some sense;
  • Your custom title will be locked for a month after getting a new name. Remember to ask a Super Moderator or Admin to remove the lock after a month, it will not come off automatically;
    • naturally, this is a month after the change was carried out, not a month after you posted your request.
    • do not post here asking to unlock your profile "when my month is over in 3 days", if we want to go through the thread before then we're not gonna wait for you, and if we go through it later then there was no point in posting ahead of time in the first place.
    • Include a link to your name change request when you ask for your profile to be unlocked.

Hello, I would like to change my forum name to Mathy to match my Showdown name (see sig for reqs). mathfreak231 is a username i had used since i was 10 on club penguin and mostly stopped using 2 years ago. The existing user Mathy has no posts and has been inactive since 2019.

Hello, I'd like to change my forum name to either DiddlySquat (if available) or TomNumbers. Current name has my day of birth in it, something I wasn't worried about when I was 14 but I now see as somewhat of a problem.

EDIT: also requesting not to get the title as it would not solve the privacy issues. If this cannot be done, I'd like for this account to be deleted so I can create a new one using the email address that's being used by this account if possible.

yep no worries -lily

Heyo, requesting a name change to maccy if available because I have no idea how I came up with this username over a decade ago, was most likely during a period of time where I picked a string of words as my usernames as I never had a standardized one back then. Thanks (y).

Hey there, reviving my old account so I can get into the Gen 9 metagames. I would like my name changed to Prikki to match all my other accounts and to eliminate confusion when I link to here. I have since abandoned this current name and this is the last remnant of it.

Hi, I'd like to request if possible a namechange to Ann (uppercase a). I'd like to shorter my name in order to stop all of the jokes around+ people tend to type my full username incorrectly. The Ann account has 0 posts and hasn't been online since 2013. thank you in advance!

quick clarity question but would removing official in my name count as a name change or would it be removing distracting text.

it'd just count as removing distracting text

It feels weird posting again ( 2016, yeesh )

I've been inactive for a long time, but with scarvio my passion for mons has came back in full swing, I'm looking to get my name changed from BoXeD to Sebberball to kick off using this account again

I'm fully aware that if you decide to give me this name change, I won't be allowed to request another name change and that's alright

Hey, I'd like to request a name change to sandro20, which I use on PS. I made this account a long time ago and want to become more active here but don't feel comfortable doxing myself just by existing. If possible I don't want to show the "formerly" on my profile as that would defeat the purpose of the change. Thank you.

Hey, i'd like to request a name change to choicebadkyurem. Which is the name I currently use on ps also there is a lot of old baggage that this name carries that I would like to get rid of if possible thanks :). Sidenote I would also like to change my date of birth to Feb 15 2008 as it is my real birthdate and I realized its wrong.

I'd like to change my name to Mountaih since that is the showdown name I've used since 2016. It's also my Discord name and people on here have a hard time finding me in there for draft tour stuff. Thank you - the name is already taken but it looks like you're the owner; if you can access it, just pm me from that acc and i'll change this one's name accordingly. otherwise send me a message from this acc or on Discord (Lily#3408) and i'll try to help out - lily

Hey I'd like to request my username change to tyo as that's what I am known by online and it is also the name I currently use on Showdown as well. I looked up the username on Smogon and it says only accessible to staff so if it counts as a username that is taken, I apologize.

it was taken but it was a banned alt so it's fine, did -lily

The Gunner

formerly Enzo Gorlami
is a Tiering Contributor
I would like to revert my username. Initially, my username used to be Gunner [redacted]. The issue with this username is that it uses my first name. I would prefer to conceal my identity, especially with prior doxxing incidents. I understand that every user is allowed only one name change, but unfortunately I did not anticipate the risks associated with using your real name when I created my account in 2015. If possible, I would like to change my username to The Gunner. Most people know me as Gunner and I would like to retain that, while omitting the second part of my original username. Thanks either way.

no worries but you'll be ineligible for future changes, did -lily

formerly theBigbrother17
Hello, I would like to request my name to be changed from theBigbrother17 to TheLoyalBandito.

Reason: I want it to be changed for several reasons and the top one being that something of me being a very new member of this website. I thought that if there wasn't a thing to change the name to or not then let me make a new account or so, and I did not know the rules and stipulations when I did find out on here and the actual rules to these forums. I did forget my password to the account that was the "second" account since I barely used it at all for Smogon's safety and the rules and stipulations on accounts kinda made me know to actually wait the time for the "dead account" to be reinstated until I learned information about how the mods can fix my predicament of unawareness and lack of Smogon Forum knowledge with it... I didn't know Smogon's chain of command and finally, I found the mod to help with my issue.

So I contacted Phoopes on this deal about the incident since I was very new to this "Smogon Forums" deal and kinda screwed up by accident by being new. If you do need evidence if needed, I do have proof from Discord of what I was concerned about and my past unawareness of it (I am the guy from Discord that Phoopes spoke to about the name issues earlier this week). If the change does work by today, tomorrow, or next week, I would highly appreciate it. If not, then I do understand.

you're good dw, did -lily
