I'm really surprised the option to change username was actually implemented now, I never thought this would go through. But it sure is a great thing that it did happen now, a lot of people will find this very useful. :)
neiio Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Hobbyist Interface Designer
Some interesting news. I Wish the username thing would have been around a couple user accounts ago. :D
I think I'll stick with my current name though. ;)
JZLobo Featured By Owner May 16, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Whoa, changed usernames. I honestly didn't think dA would implement it... now I gotta do it.
