    Rules for username changes:

    1. If you wish to change your username, you must request it in this thread, no exceptions. Please do not email our Admin email or PM us with name change requests. ​

    2. Search the ADVrider Inmate username list prior to requesting a name change to ensure it's not in use. The username list is available from menu at the top of the forum entitled "INMATES". Please do not ask us to delete someone else's username so you can use it.

    3. Do not use a bike brand or bike model in your username, such requests will be ignored. Bikes come and go and you'll be back for another name change.

    4. Let's face it, changing your username is a pain in the ass not just for us but for your adoring fans. Username changes should be few. One or two is plenty.

    5. If you just joined ADV, you must live with your username for three months and have at least 25 posts prior to requesting a name change. Maybe it'll grow on you or maybe you'll find ADV is not for you and move on.

    6 - If you have a checkered history, your name change may be refused. You made your bed, now sleep in it. :D

    We reserve the right to reject your request for any reason. That decision is final so please don't start PMing others to help you.

    I would like to change my username to MotoProf. My current username appears not to inspire a lot of confidence...I have no idea why. Thanks!

    You have 11 posts. That might be more the reason than your username:deal

    But we'll change it and see what the fox happen.:eek1

    Hi,

    Kindly change me back to Opie. Current Opie would like his name changed to jamgam.

    Thanks you.

    p.s. Sent PM's to Baldy on 11/20, but maybe I should have sent them to GB.

    mine is "ammca" when I originally joined I didn't know my handle would have so much to do with my identity at the dual purpose rallys. Nobody knows how to say ammca. I would like to change mine to C-Rad as its been a nick name for me for a bit and should work better. :cry Thanks in advance. now does my password stay the same??

    So how do we do it?

    I asked him if he would consider it, he said yes. He's almost never on ADV so this was via PM. If you're a mod, feel free to login to my account and check my PMs.

    Should I ask him to post here and then you can just do both at once?

    He has to post a change request in this thread. We don't want to see PM's.
