Not that it's any business of yours, but I can say that there atleast 5-10 forums I frequent on a daily basis, all involving gaming, 3d art or Star Trek. And of those 5-10 forums, most of them allow the users to change their forum name, or in the very least, the ability to add a custom title (I.e instead of Member, it might read Formerly known as Darkthunder).

And like I said, most of those forums, also have capable admins who are friendly and helpful enough to provide a forum name change, if it's not directly enabled by the forum software.

I'm sure, if people pony up enough cash to the PW overlords, you'll see an INSTANT addition of a forum name change. Right now, the party line is "We can't change your display name", when in reality, it's a simple matter of COST and WORK. Naturally, they won't change our names FOR FREE, when they can make some extra money off of us.

On the CO forums I have to log in with my pwe account now but it still has my old forum name on the CO forums. Can I have my old name since i already have it in the CO forums?
A very good point there doogie. When i'm logged in (using my Perfect World login), at the CO forums, I see my old name as Darkthunder in the forums. So the name is clearly still accessable via my login. But not usable on THESE forums (and soon won't be usable on the CO forums either).
