Unfortunately, you're kind of out of luck. Mods were the only ones who could change names, but now we... sort of don't have any? So you won't have much luck in that field, i don't think.

If you'll check the Board Team page, and investigate everybody's profile pages, you'll be able to see that absolutely none of them have been active since about three quarters through 2017. If I recall correctly, this was around the time the drama that took place occurred, though honestly it's a bit fuzzy to me and I'm too lazy to fact check that right now.

Long story short, there is... Literally no moderation on this website anymore, and I believe that now it's not possible for anybody to step up to the plate. The people with the power don't come anymore, so we can't put new people in charge, I don't think?

I hope I'm wrong. I honestly do.

I think it keeps itself in check through people who have been on here for a long time, so they know what goes and what doesn't go, which imo is pretty nice. A lot of people are really helpful and point to a solution for the small problems some users have and I think that's really great, honestly.

Hope we get mods sometime though. Even if it's a lost cause at this point.

Has anyone tried emailing them? A few of them have emails linked to their accounts. Not sure if it would help for us to just spam them saying "bring back parp"... but maybe it would do something, I dunno.

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that'll accomplish jack shit considering why they left. Please don't harass the former mods. They left for a reason and they have no intention of returning.

For your information, the original owner of MSPARP did attempt to email them, and allegedly the user behind the website's design insisted that the forums be deleted. So, yeah, no.

This is off topic, though.


RE: Name Change - LostRefrain - 01-26-2018 05:15 PM

I don't believe any of the former mods are active - and I agree that it'd be inadvisable to try and contact them like that when they're not active here!

Normal name-change protocol is to PM them about the request, but unfortunately I believe the mod who used to handle the majority of that has since left.

Unfortunately you may stuck with what you've got username-wise for some time.


RE: Name Change - Alienoid - 01-26-2018 07:05 PM

Alternatively, though, you could simply set up an alternate account? One with a new username.
