Exclamation Profile Name change. Help! Admin needed

Okay! Umm, first of all, I know this should be posted in the "List of bugs" section, but, umm, I know it would take me (almost) forever to get a reply, and I need for some admin (or kosta :amused to read it.

Alright then, I just wanted to say, that I (and someone else might) want to change my (theirs) Username, but they can't, because, as the Mighty Midget told me, my (our) usernames are INTEGRATED into the abandonia database (:mad, and only a few people have access to that database, so, could you PLEASE help me out?!

I could change your forum username, but as soon as someone ran the "broken profile fixer" script (which we have to do, since not all new registrations appear in the forum database correctly), your name would be reset to what is in the main site base.

There are two people you can contact about it: aaa_admin and Kosta - altough Kosta is on a vacation and won't be back for a couple more days.

Thanks, mister Horseman, but I, umm... Searched the member database and found NO aaa_admin on the site, or did you mean something else (abandonia admin, for example). Sorry, but I REALLY want to change my user name, and... I don't want to bother Kosta (If he's on vacation, then maybe it would be a little harder for him to see he got, about, 50 messages), and whats the use to change my username if it's temporary?

Thanks anyway

Sorry for being off-topic, but I was surprised by the number of boxshots and extras are apparantly supplied by him - 47 boxshots and 678 extras!

I know he didn't supply boxshots for Return of the Phantom, and it makes me wonder how many other boxshots he has credit for.

Randomly checking the extras that he is supposed to have supplied, the documents show other people's names on them, not his.

What is going on here? :wondering:

He was credited for all contributions without assigned contributor.

I'm sure this was not intentional and will be fixed where applicable.

I suppose that it was intentional since you need to enter a contributor for boxshots (I wasn't precise: he was credited for all contributions without assigned contributor which must have a contributor (or where possible to automaticly add one contributor to easier find them later)). But yes, I try to fix it where possible - gathering data - don't know what's with Tom Henrik's list - will have to ask him again.
