So I created my pilot name with a capital T instead of a lowercase t. I couldn't go to my profile because it kept giving me an error but I decided to go ahead and buy the founder's pack. I went ahead and made my first foam post and found out my pilot name was created with a lowercase t and was wondering if I can change it to a capital T as I had written on the Pilot registration page? Any assistance would be welcome.

Also, will there be paid pilot name changes introduced later?

Just as an addendum, I keep getting the error # 10245 that says "you are not permitted to view member profiles" when I try and go to my own profile page.

$10 cash shop per captical letter, spaces and punctuation extra.
Just kidding.
The boards are bugged up, there was instructions on who to contact recently, but search is broken right now. you might try the website support forum.

I want to change my name all together, especially when I have a better one in mind.

The problem is fairly common and has been fixed for people before.

If it is only at the forum level it's Different but I don't want my ingame name to say tyberius when I had created it Tyberius. Does anyone know if the forum name is the same as the ingame name? Or do we get to create multiple pilots like characters?

They specifically said NO to changing names or adding letters. you can only change case/capitalization.
For those of you who don't like your name, just make a new account.
For those of you who don't like your name and purchased a founders pack. Start a petition, you are now an investor in MWO.

I love my name. I just need it Capitalized as I had originally intended. Just want to know what process is in place to do this. Can a moderator respond?

Apparently there was a thread in the Website Support section but that was deleted. In it they had a procedure to capitalize names. I wonder what the new process is.

I would love a change too. I originally picked this because it told me Frost was in use when I signed up last November. I did a search and apparently there WAS no Frost back then. Damnit.

Damn I thought this thread was about changing the appearance of your name in-game (for example adding clan tags, but that the main account-name stays as you originally registered).

I would love to be able to change my name, I made this account not thinking about it, and after a little research turns out my pilot name is a trademarked christian rock band, C'mon don't stick me with THAT! especially if I paid good money, (like the other founders members) give us a break?

Luckily I got exactly the name I wanted on my first try, but I am sure they will end up making some way to edit them eventually. I have seen quite a few games that offer name changes in their Premium shops so you can change your identity.

As someone who invested money in this game (and all the other founders can I'm sure agree) it is pretty ridiculous that they don't allow name changes and if we don't see that sort of functionality by launch (even if it costs a few bucks that's fine, I just want to be able to DO it) we should start a petition.
