Moot Username Policy Update!

Notice

***NOTE: This feature will not go live until August 12th!*** ย  Howdy folks! ๐Ÿค  ย  After receiving some feedback, we have decided to update our policy regarding Moot usernames. Moving forward, if you are inactive on Moot for more than 12 months your name will be available for other users to claim. If any existing user wishes to claim your name, OR if a new user wishes to make an account with your name, they will be able to do so. ย  You will still be able to login to your account (with all items, posts, comments, etc...) after 12 months, only your username will be different. ย  Thank you all for understanding and happy humpday!

  • ExileDavian_YT LV.3 Lurker Aug 8, 2019, 09:23 AM

    MWAHAHAHA

  • ToBeBruhed LV.20 Bamboozled Aug 8, 2019, 09:07 AM

    wow

  • NO NAME verified Aug 8, 2019, 09:08 AM

    why?

  • BadMelody LV.21 Professional Noob Aug 8, 2019, 10:11 AM

    so new users don't have to make usernames like XxXxS@$uk3L0v3rxXxX in 5 years because all of the sensible names are still taken by inactive users.

  • NO NAME verified Aug 8, 2019, 10:25 AM

    Although first come first serve if I came first I deserve the rights to the username I picked. I feel like there are two better solutions. 1.) Use the discord model where every user has a unique tag on top of their username. 2.) Extend the amount of time you're aloud for inactivity. The way you have set this up makes it feel like you all are forcing me to use the platform to keep my username.

  • BadMelody LV.21 Professional Noob Aug 8, 2019, 10:40 AM

    No, you don't deserve the rights to the username that you came up with, that's why moot can make a policy like this in the first place, you simply feel entitled to keeping the username you came up with.

    Your first solution might be fine, as long as moot is fine with implementing another system of identification, but your second solution has the exact same problem you're complaining about right now, it's still forcing you to use the platform. That being said, a whole year is a very long time to never once go on a forum that you actually care about, I have no problem with permanent usernames being reserved for members that decide to check on moot at least once every 365 days.

  • Angel Romero05 LV.5 Lurker Aug 8, 2019, 12:02 PM

    I agree with you one year is enough time because if you really want to keep your isername is because you want to keep using your account so open it at least once every 365 days to keep it

  • BadMelody LV.21 Professional Noob Aug 8, 2019, 12:48 PM

    yeah, it's really not much to ask your userbase to login at least .3% of the days out of the entire year if they want to reserve their name.

  • Zevulsion LV.23 Clearly Hacking Aug 8, 2019, 09:08 AM

    this is alright

  • Darkhammerf150 LV.2 Lurker Aug 8, 2019, 09:08 AM

    that makes no sense...

  • Keewee LV.3 Lurker Aug 8, 2019, 01:42 PM

    Pepega

  • Snyper Eyes LV.27 PlayStation Aug 8, 2019, 09:09 AM

    so now I can be the 1 and only Snyper Eyes!!! Yay (not like anyone would wanna be me though)

  • MrBunno LV.3 I'm a Bot Aug 11, 2019, 11:44 PM

    ouch

  • Memekid32 LV.16 Wolf Aug 8, 2019, 09:09 AM

    I dont like this new thing

  • BadMelody LV.21 Professional Noob Aug 8, 2019, 12:54 PM

    Why, are you worried you're not gonna log on for an entire year and then decide to come back?

  • NO NAME verified Aug 8, 2019, 09:09 AM

    okay cool

  • Apache LV.13 Chief Aug 8, 2019, 09:09 AM

  • R0GU3_Kdowg0828 LV.21 S Aug 8, 2019, 09:09 AM

    so if I didn't use my account at all in January anyone would be able to use my name

  • Nop LV.19 I Love Food Aug 8, 2019, 09:11 AM

  • R0GU3_Kdowg0828 LV.21 S Aug 8, 2019, 09:15 AM

  • Nop LV.19 I Love Food Aug 8, 2019, 09:16 AM

    that doesn't matter. if you deleted the moot app. rn, right this day, and didn't go back on till august 8th 2020. your name would be possibly taken by another person
