"Second life" at Buxr

submitted on October 26, 2014 by YanBz in "Buxr Website / Contests"
In the past I have allowed Buxr members to create a new account, and start contributing under a new name. The idea was that you could leave your problems behind and start a new life.

This however didn't make a difference. The member would just fall into the same traps and make the same mistakes. The problems would resurface.

Also, very often other members would recognize the new contributor for who they really were, resulting to some uncomfortable situations.

I am now against this practice. I think members should be responsible for their actions and a "second life" should not be allowed. If you screw up you have to face it and try to mend it with the community and admins.

What do you think?
1. Should Buxr members be allowed to have a "second life"?
 Hell yes!
 No way!
 I don't care...

    Last time it happened about 4 or 5 years ago, so yes, you have not been around long enough to know.

    I was not aware of that either. Second life seems like a good idea in theory but then if nothing changes/same problems reoccur, when does it end? So I guess overall I'm against it, same as you. Live with the consequences of your actions, mistakes, etc and learn from those previous pitfalls... and the Buxr community. That's what the rest of us do.

    I don't want a second life - I just might have come up with something better for a user name! Mr Green

      same here...Yan, is there a way we can atleast be allowed to change the user name but keep the identity same? I created my buxr account thinking I would be using it for a day or two but ended up becoming a permanent member! It would be great if that option is available. It may be just a one time deal but just give it a thought. I'm sure there may be many more members having the same question.

      Sorry, guys. The user name is ingrained into the site design and it would take me an incredible effort to change it, we are talking about many days of work. So, for now, you can only change your name on April 1st. Wink
