Is there any chance Ron shall ever do the "namesweep" again?  I am become leaned to changing my username to my real name or initials if it ever becomes possible again without needing to change accounts.   I think some others asked about changing names earlier this year as well.  Just thought I would bring it up for consideration.

There isn't one planned for the immediate future, Essorant.

What used to take a few hours to run, sweeping through every single post in every single thread in every single forum, would now require much, much longer. I'm not even sure how much longer. Possibly days. At some point, I'm sure we'll be moving to a different server, maybe even different software, and a full sweep will be necessary any way. When that happens, I hope we'll have some prep time and anyone interested can put in a request for a name change.
