Creating a new account in order to have a new name will:
Get that account disabled
Lock that account name to the disabled account so that it is not available for use
Moderators will generally change your account name the first time with no questions asked. We might change it a second time if it's been a very long time since your last rename or there is a good reason. Changing it after the second time will likely require a very, very good reason.
When you want to request a name change, this is how to best go about it:
rMail the moderators with a few choices as to what you'd like your new name to be, in the order of preference.
Once you know which names are available from the moderator's response, you will be instructed to contact the GMs of all games you are currently in and let them know to expect the name change.
Let the moderators know this has been done.
The moderators will change the name, you will receive a reply to your rmail to let you know it has been done. You will also receive an email to the email account registered with your user name.
You may have to log out and then back in with the new name.
That's all there is to it, but it's also the only way to do it.
Please don't end up losing the name you really want by trying to create a new account to get it.

Re: Changing Your Account Name
Seems like it might be a good time to bump this.
Please contact the moderators if you want to change your account name.
If you create a duplicate account instead, against site rules, and end up with both accounts banned, the new account you created will NOT be the one that is reactivated upon contact.
In short, please do it the 'right' way. It's way simpler, and it takes less time on your end as well, and this method WILL work.
