I mean, I really dislike my previous name. Would really be irritating if it were permanently in my profile for everyone to see...
No offense but I really don't think this is a very good reason tbh. What is wrong in other people knowing your old username, no one will change their opinion about him just because of his old username, its just a username. And its not them, but us who would want to know. We may not recognize the username and I think that will be more beneficial and more important than people not wanting others to know about their old username because they are ashamed. My old username sucks too(Federer11), but I wouldn't care if people know about it, its not like people will change their opinion about me because of my old username.

I don't like the idea of forcing it on them by having it in their profile.
But well for the non-premiums, there is a thread about our old usernames so.....


Anyway, if the mods don't like the suggestion then its fine, I can't do anything about it.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

What's happening with MTF today? It keeps deleting the messages posted the past few hours and the forum doesn't work at all most of the time.

Is there a way to bring the deleted posts back? I need them for my PAW management.

Most often they will be back when you log out an on again. Had the same experience and for me nothing disappeared permanently.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why do you allow a thread title like this one: Miami QF: [20] Nishikori d. [5] Federer 3-6 7-5 6-4 I mean, seriously.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

It is currently under discussion to create a rule about match thread titles remaining purely objective.

Please be patient.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

If mod changed the title of the Nishikori/Federer's match, shouldn't the * in the Djokovic/Murray match thread be removed too?

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Player bashing - Insulting players or using derogatory terms/nicknames to attack them. e.g trash, disgusting human being etc.

Is this the new player bashing defintion? That means someone who said player A is a terrible human being or uses nicknames like Divatrov, Fraud, Dull, etc, will receive a infraction or get banned from now on?

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Why can't I point out that athletes are a lot more prone to getting mono than regular people? Mono being linked to EPO is a scientific fact, what you do with that information is up to each individual.

Ordinary harmless nicknames like those are still allowed, but it's the extremely insulting ones that are being clamped down on. You know stuff like "shitray" "shitdal" (I ain't good with insulting nicknames, but you get the jist), calling players disgusting, trash or evil etc. There's a lot of forumers who are just used to insulting players in that way, so this'll be a gradual process to reduce the insults around here.

People just can't help themselves during fanbase wars eh?
