Tbh I’m bored of dis username and I’d like to change it…and I’ve heard reason we cannot change our usernames anymore’s this mention feature since it might be a problem for da source code or sth….
Come to think about it…dis mention feature’s fairly recent (1 year and a few months I think?)…and GAG could function properly widout it for years…so y we have to carry da same username forever and if we wanna change it…we have to cancel our account and start a new one? I don’t think most people here will cancel their accounts in order to change their names…. so y carry da same name forever?
I guess if we cancel mention feature it’ll be fine…. and I’m not talkin about changin yer username 3 times/month…but I believe once/year it’s ok to change…don’t u think so? :|

The programmers in charge of this site should fix the mention system to be bound to user ID rather than username. It's an easy enough thing to do, most likely.2

I think that's a bad idea. the tagging feature is really useful and there are not that many people who hate their name that much that they wanna change it.
the problem with changing the name is probably that old tags don't change and cause errors when clicking on them. it should be easy to change the system so that they get redirected to the new name, but it's work and costs money.
another thing is that people might abuse the system. so a solution would be to have you pay a small fee for it, like 5-10€, or buy it for XP3
