    I'd like to change mine to Major ******* (after the Spaceball character) but if you guys don't like curse words then just forget it. I'd rather not have it watered down to Major Butthole or something :(

    EDIT: I suppose the censorship above gave me all the answer I needed. So can we curse then lol?

    Yes you can, no you cannot be Major whatever word you have there because the "profanity" filters blocked it.
    Contact an admin, not a mod. Mods aren't able to do this last time I checked.

    PS at what point would you believe that curse words are okay in the user names here? The rules are pretty tight around any word that even resembles a curse word. Gotta keep it G rated, no lie.

    If you want to change your username, read this FAQ and then send your request to the admins via the Contact Us form.

    And, as you've discovered, certain words are censored and won't be made into a username.
