in thread Username Changing: Redux
why not try a /msg gods?
Why that's (almost) exactly what I did Coruscate :) I proposed this solution so that we have a standard manner of dealing with the issue, although as tye has already said, it's easier just to deal with it manually. So be it.
The reason I wanted to change my handle is because I'm on the job market, and I want to be able to point potential employers to my work here without twittering on about what and why my handle is what it is. How that fits into your want/require distinction I cannot say, however it's part of a larger policy that I've enacted for myself: if it's professional (e.g., Sourceforge), I use my real name; if it's semi-professional (i.e., Slashdot), then I'll use a pseudonym, and for all else I'll choose a random throwaway name. If anything, this desire on my part shows respect for the Monastery and for this community, because I want to be identified with it for real, even to the point of allowing others within two clicks of my home phone number.
