Forum name change possible?

Now we have the new shiny forums, does it become easier/possible/viable to get our forum name changed if we want?

    Actually, using your game ID, brings more than a single pro, in my opinion:
    1. People could be less prone to troll or flame, you're identificable in game after all.
    2. Possibly useful for better organize game events or groups
    3. Arenanet got the account list nicknames and they are already integrated in the gw2 site system.

    No. The screen name is apparently tied to various sub-systems that make it a pain (and an unreliable one at that) to change it. In effect, the code assumes that people wouldn't change their display name (i.e. someone didn't remember that particular mistake from GW1).

    Hype is the path to the dark side. Hype leads to unfulfilled expectations. Disappointment leads to anger. Anger leads to disgust. Disgust leads to "oh, new shinies! I'm back!"
