The OG and Mods have been noticing a recent uptick in people choosing usernames that serve to promote a particular brand, product, or service. While the practice is not widespread, it is concerning enough that we feel it necessary to reinforce our rules with these guidelines:

1. Usernames shall not have the purpose or effect of advertising a product, site, event, or thing (etc).
2. Usernames that yield personal information or inappropriate results when entered in a websearch may be disqualified, at the discretion of the OG.

If you come across a username that you feel violates this principle, please report it to the nearest OG member or Moderator. Thank you for your help!!

I am wondering how I go about changing my username. I emailed my request using the 'Contact Is' email, but did not receive a response. Thanks!
