How do I select a username?

We ask that you select your username carefully. Avoid choosing a username that is, or part of, a profane word, sexy or inspiring of any ill-feelings or that is Islamically unlawful. If a username is found inappropriate, we reserve the right to change it without prior notice. You will then be informed of the change and asked to choose an appropriate name.

Can I change my username?

Your username should be carefully selected upon registration. Username instructions are apparent on the registration page. However, you are allowed to change your username after registration.
PM an Admin, providing your desired username, and your reason for the change. Bear in mind that the desired username should not conflict with the forum rule on usernames.

We discourage frequent username changes without reasons. And hence, the rules for username change has been updated as follows:
  • Username Change: 10% reps deduction.
  • If repeated in 6 months: 20% reps deduction.
  • More than 2 times in 6 months: Not allowed.
