Requesting account username changes.
« on: January 18, 2011, 10:39:46 pm »
I just want to take this opportunity to discuss briefly about account registrations as well as how a member should go about requesting a new username for their account.

Please keep in mind the following items regarding accounts:

Every member is allowed only ONE account on these forums. To create more when banned/kicked, etc. or without permission, can result in immediate banning.
a) If you are a returning member from a long absence and have forgotten your old account/password, etc., then please contact an Admin and we will help you with your account details.
b) If you are a member who wishes to have their account name changed, then please contact one of the Admins and we will help change your name for you. Please DO NOT create a second account simply to use a new name.
c) If more than one person is in your household/office/etc. and sharing your computer, and would like to join Furtopia, then please contact a staff member first so their account will not be mistaken as a 2nd account made by the primary (main) account holder. Failure to contact a staff member may result in banning of the new account and a reprimand of the other member in the household.
d) Sharing of individual accounts is strictly prohibited. Please maintain the security of your account/password and not share it with others. The user is responsible for any use of their account by unauthorised persons, whether authorised or not, and if it is found in any way that an account is being shared between multiple users, it may be closed and subsequently banned from use.


If you wish to have your account name changed, then contact an Administrator with the new name EXACTLY as you'd like to use. Once we change your name, then an automated Furtopian email should hopefully go out to you with a new auto-generated password for your account. Once you recieve that email, then you can log back in with the new auto-generated password. If you do not like that password, then you can go into your member profile and reset a new password for yourself of your own choosing.
SPECIAL NOTE: Please make sure that your email address is correct and current in your account profile so that you recieve the automated Furtopian email with the new password. Discussing, Choosing, Sending, etc. of account passwords is prohibited on IM services and/or in the Furtopian IRC. The staff can only discuss any password issues with a member through email only.

If for some reason you do feel the need to create a second account with a different name, then please  discuss it with us before we give approval. If we do approve it, then your old account will have to be closed and all accesses and privledges on the old account will be revoked. The staff do not have the capability to transfer privledges and posts, etc. from the old account to a new account. Once you create a new account, then you are basically "starting over from scratch".

If members cannot reach an Admin by PM, then you can try reaching an Admin at the Staff Page located here:

As mentioned before, a member is only allowed one account for the forums. In regards to Letter C further above, when Admins process registrations, there may be times where we get "multi-logins". What this means is that maybe a person registered once, then decided they didn't like the account they registered with and then created another new account. Or it could be multiple people in the same household sharing a comp/IP address, or there are one or more accounts with similar/same emails, names, or other

Adding a further post to this thread. ;) From time to time when the Admins are processing new member registrations, we may see "multi-login" accounts. This is where one and/or more people appear to share or have the same account information. This may be due to two and/or more people sharing a comp or some other issue.
The staff will send out an email to one and/or both account holders asking for clarification on the issue. That person or persons have 7 days to reply back to us. If a reply has not been recieved after the seventh day, then the extra multiple account may be rejected.
