    dear VJC/VJF team,

    is it possible to change one's user name without loosing the VJC points?
    i registered a long time ago as brain, but it's not my VJ name, just something i came up when i didn't know i would stay that long :) .

    i'm afraid this won't work because the name is the main data base identifier...

    thanx for information

    Yep, same here, actually, when I first registered, I hadn't done a set! Now I've got loads under my belt it seems that I am, in fact, a VJ,(!) My working name is amukidi.

    Changing the login in vBulletin is difficult because it is used everywhere so a lot of data/tables must be updated. I know there is a vBulletin hack available though so I'll look for it ASAP. Changing the name on VJCentral will easy though since I'm only using the ID (number) to identify members.

    I'll also try to make it possible to use more special characters and spaces on the login.
