Awww, it would've been fun to all be Spartacus for a day!

Or John Malkovic, for that matter.

'm happy with my name but I'm still glad this is an option!

I've 'deleted' my former account, because I've tried to quit BGA. But then new games, like 7 Wonders, came online and I wanted to play again.
I want to change my new username with the old one... but it keeps saying that already exists (although you can't find it in the community page).
Is there a change to retrieve an username from a deleted account?

> 1 year last seen + less than 4 games played.

It also means that an account with at least 4 games played will keep its username forever (which is a good thing :) )
Awhhh mannn! The player whose username I wanted, "Korra", had more than 4 games but was inactive for over 5 years. :(
Hope the mods will change this rule one day.

Everything remains with the new name of course, including reputation.

And during 6 months your old username remains on your profile page to make sure everyone understand what happens.
If I get this right old usernames should disappear after 6 months, is it? Yet, on my alt - despite that the 6 months period already passed since the namechange happened - the old username still can be seen... Can it be a bug or did I misunderstand something?

Greetings and thx for all of ur hard work :)
