Have you made it possible to change your nickname? I just saw that Jonne appearantly has changed his name to MrShmoe. Even if it says that he has done so in his profile, it could get confusing if many people did it.
If everyone changed their name, it could get really confusing...

Yes, you can now change usernames. It was a much requested feature so we decided to add it in. There are some limits though. The first time you change your name you can do it for free. If you want to change it again it will cost you 50 force. This should stop people changing names continuously.

malone - it still could get a bit confusing if everybody changed their names. Just a thought, why not charge 100 force everytime someone changes his/her name? And not give a free name change at all. Just my thougths

The first one will always be free because new users don't get to pick a username when they signup (they are assigned a FXhomer name). So they need to be given a chance to choose a name they like.
We will consider increasing the amount of force for subsequent changes, but I want to see how it pans out first. 50 seems like a good amount to start off with.

Hey Malone, great thinking! Be able to change the nickname, but at a cost of 50 force, that's very smart. I think its fair..!
But I'll stick to Oeyvind, cus' in fact... that is my name..!
