    A few years back I knew that if it ever came back, I would change my username into bewbs. But now it's actually back, I'm quite spoilt for choice.

    2006 - I think was the last big one. I still need to complete Super Princess Peach.

    AS I said, Only my profile is the only thing that changed for it.

    Man, Blizzard doing a Pokéwalker/tamagotchi instead of a Panda.. and Try out the NES Google Maps!

    Oh, Joe. XD

    It's nice to see people won't be stuck with unwanted usernames anymore. EXCEPT everyone I know is getting one. I won't know who anybody is! :eek:

    To be honest, if it is a prank I think Serebii could do much better than a fake "change your name" thread. So, I thought it was worth a shot to post anyway. So sick of my username. :p

    Because you claim it will be opened for a month, but you're gonna close it at the end of the day.

    Yeah, but we'd need to log in with our new name once you change it, so we'd need some sort of notification when the change actually takes place.

    @Jazz14456. LOL @ "maybe this infraction is a joke too". Oh, RaZoR LeAf, you have an awesome sense of humor.

    EDIT: Also, the amount of people believing this is an April Fool's joke is staggering. They wouldn't joke about something like this, too many members would riot if it turned out to be a joke.

    You can check the forums without logging on. If you find your can't log on with your username, then you can check any thread you know you've posted in to see if your name is different. Alternatively, if you don't log out (and use the Remember me function) then you will find your name is automatically changed and you don't need to worry about it.


    Jazz, if you want your infraction to be public then fine, but don't think that by posting it here you are some how validating that it's a joke. It's not getting reversed.

    Whoever changed Haunter227's name should be promoted. or something.

    since only admins can change names whoever did it can't be promoted any further :p


    also adding onto what razor leaf said about knowing when your name is changed, check the username change thread. there is a 99% chance i will be the one changing the names and i will post in the thread saying when i changed some/all of them.

    GOSH! IF HAUNTER227'S NAME GOT CHANGED AND IT DIDN'T CAUSE THE SERVER TO MESS UP LIKE BEFORE, THAT MIGHT MEAN SOMETHING!?!

    subtle hint.

    I'm still laughing at Haunter's new name. The asthma is starting to kick in.

    Seriously guys, 10/10.

    That's likely exactly how they thought. Which makes it the perfect April Fools' joke. By joking about the last thing we would expect them to joke about, they are making sure that none of us could have seen this coming, thus maximizing the number of people who would fall for it. Your post, in fact, is proof that this, if it turns out to be an April Fools' joke, is their best one yet. You said it yourself, they wouldn't joke about something like this. But see, you're laboring under the delusion that there's any sort of boundaries as far as April Fools' jokes are concerned, other than "as long as it's not illegal". One of the previous pranks involved custom avatars, for Arceus's sake! Yeah. They went there. So don't count this out as an April Fools' joke just yet. Me, I'm not ruling definitively either way until we hit April 2nd.
