Before posting, be aware that this thread is specific to 2.5/forum username requests. Account usernames for the premium game cannot be changed by posting here!
For game accounts in the premium game (2.7 and newer), read this: Can I change my username?
- ✧ Username must be between 3 and 20 characters! Can use alphanumeric, space, or -_ characters.
✧ You must have had no infractions (warnings or temporary bans) against your account within the past six months.
✧ You cannot request a username that is already in use; accounts will not be renamed or deleted (banned or inactive) to fulfil your request.
- - Please search the user database first to ensure the desired username is free for the taking. You can do so via http://wolfquest.org/bb/memberlist.php?mode=searchuser
✧ You are welcome to submit more than one username in order of preference.
✧ Most importantly, the new username must not fall against the forum guidelines.
Request LimitationsEach account is currently limited to two requests per year. The first and second requests can be made at any time throughout the year; making a third request in the same year will result in your request being declined after the second change was made until one year has elapsed. We only allow extra changes to correct any mistakes or to revert. (It helps to recheck your post to confirm there are no typos!) You can always contact a moderator or administrator to check when your username was last updated.
Creating a new account to bypass this system may result in your request being ignored. Circumventing the system is against the rules and creating more than one account is not allowed. We may choose to ignore your request if any existing accounts you own have already had a username change.
One request per author. You can only request a username change for the account you are logged into and posting with, regardless of your affiliation with another member. Posting a request for or on the behalf of another user will be ignored and may result in your post being removed. Users who have no access to their account are advised to contact an administrator for recovery assistance.
Infractions affect eligibility. As stated in the eligibility guidelines, account infractions (official or, depending on severity, unofficial warnings and temporary bans) will determine whether or not you can post a request. If you've changed your username but have received a warning since the first request, you will not be able to make a second request and must wait until six months have passed. We may make exceptions to this span of time based on severity.
Please be patient with the administrators and senior moderators, and thanks in advance for understanding! If you have any questions, you are welcome to post them here.
Master ListJust so everyone can keep track of who is who, a master list will be compiled and updated as changes are applied. You can also view a member's original username on their full profile page. Be aware that once your username has been changed, there is no guarantee you will be able to revert to your previous username, however some names will be reserved to prevent re-use, misuse or impersonation.

For example, "Amaterasu" cannot be registered due to it containing the word "mate"; this would be permitted as it is known to be the name of a character in the videogame Okami. We will try to respond to posts that contain a disallowed word along with whether or not an exception will be made.

I will clear this out annually with each January that comes and goes for as long as this thread is running. (@Fellow admins & senior mods: feel free to continue logging changes under the master list or let me know if you'd like editing access to the spreadsheet. Thanks. ^^)
