Halloween is coming so, is there going to be a temporary name change for users?

I wonder if users can change for a short period of time their names during that time. Thanks for taking your time to read this!
This feature has always been here. Sooner or later in October, they'll definitely implement it. Just be patient.
That guy who wasted time on making his BLDC level and posted an unfinished and impossible product. Eventually, the host removed the submission and the author of the level deleted the redundant file. Remember, kids, never slack off making your own level, particularly right before the deadline.

there is a very good chance that either:

1. they broke it (happened once)
2. they forgot to enable it (also happened once)
3. theyll spin some pr move and say we dont need it (guess 3 times)

patience wont help with either lol
1. When was it broken? It must've been when I was inactive.
Also, mods should let us know that something got broken. Nothing's perfect.
2. I feel like they forgot about it last year, but they ultimately put it up on October 15th or so.
3. What can be the reason to do so? It's an extremely fun feature. You can make either a pun on your username or something that's otherwise funny or cool.
We have rules for this sort of things, though, but they won't stop most of active users from having fun. Anyone who doesn't abide by the rules may regret it. When they learn, they'll think of something that isn't against the regulations. If not, they deserve a severe form of punishment.

What about peeps throwing a tantrum about things that don't happen as promised? Their real life is more important that a stupid website. If they can't behave maturely, it's not a site for them. If they turn out immature either way, they'll be dealt with.

EDIT: Removed a tag that wasn't closed.

Reiterating the 'just be patient' bit here. We haven't forgotten, we're just waiting until it's a little bit closer to Halloween to activate it. It should be roughly at the same time we did it last year.

--------------------
Historically custom names have been turned on roughly half way through the month for both Oct and Dec rarely was it ever turned on sooner but again it's "just be patient"
I don't think patience was ever an issue. Not once have I heard of, or seen, someone throw a fit because the name change function wasn't turned on in the beginning of the month.

As for when it will be turned on, my guess would be midway through the month when halloween preparations are usually underway.

damn some pessimism you've got going here, ladida! nothing is broken, nothing is forgotten, and while i've suggested to remove the feature (you caught me!), the rest of staff shot me down 😢 plus, stuff doesn't tend to be broken for too long with telinc1 and randomdude behind the wheels, it's no old-days.

so yes, october and december will continue to allow the fun username changes for the future, but we aren't doing it for the whole month. halloween colors and other stuff will kick in soon, and then usernames will be next week or so. you'll see it when you see it.
i was just trying to play the bad guy and sound cool and apathetic to force a staff response pls dont bully its not an easy job for me but someone's gotta do it #ab{;_;}

for the sake of consistent clarity on who people are based on first look

i know my logic is frayed. there's a reason the rest of staff disagreed lmao
Well, to be fair that's a valid point. Maybe a site option that hides festive names by default (for new users and not logged-in) would help? So if people activates it they should be aware of what they will got.

And maybe they should be able to deactivate it whenever they don't feel like keeping it.

I’m sure newcomers can easily enough figure out what’s going on, based on the obviously thematic banner. I don’t think the names being changed for half a month will confuse anyone that much.

I agree that it should be something that can be toggled either way, though.

Believe it or not, I actually am (attempting to) work on a hack. Just very slowly.
Also just reminding everyone that unless this feature has changed since the last temp name change event you can just hover your mouse over user names and it'll show the original.

When I registered to the site during the time where the Christmas colors and named were turned on, those usernames were what I first saw, so I assumed that it was normal and nothing eventful. Then everything threw me off when a lot of the author's names suddenly changed on me.

I agree with there being some sort of notice that there's users wearing custom names.
