Paid Name Changes
Dear deviantArt Staff,
I've been virgino0owhore for nine years. While I understand I can just create a new account if I want a new name, I feel that this is a waste. I would have to move every piece of work over to this new account, re-favorite over 3,000 favorites and rewatch my current watch list. It's simply not worth it all because of 14 letters. 
Not to mention, I lead a club against name wasting, making getting a new account hypocritical. It seems more practical to allow members to pay to change their name. This prevents the wasting of names that can't be removed because they have history on them. It also gives deviantArt a new revenue source. 
Naturally you couldn't choose a taken name but, the act of paying for a name change is common in internet society and amongst gaming communities as well. The price varies but is usually around 15 U.S. dollars, and whatever that may translate into. 
How would a user change his/her name?

Journal History


Some massive changes.
I just moved from one city to another to attend grad school. Class begins next week. I am terribly nervous but really excited!
It's a six-person studio program, and so it was a honour to get in, it's also incredibly intense. 
After a couple of emotional days I have settled into my new place very well. After the scary car ride, the cats seem to be doing just fine. 
I'm excited about having the dedicated time to further my work and the discussions and writing on theory that will add to my practice. 
I wish I had more to add than EEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!
But that really sums it up.
