Did I miss the name change jopportunity?
Is it hidden somewhere to discourage too many people doing it? Not happened yet?

Anyone know?

1. No.
I haven't seen it. The announcement has been taken off the Latest page. It may not start for a day or two. I know Skinner and Earl were at the celebrations yesterday, so they may have work to catch up.

4. It's effective, and I changed my name. :)
While I shall remain a revolutionary at heart, I feel we have succeeded in manifesting a Velvet Revolution with Obama's Presidency.

So, I am now One Grass Root. :)

Hugs to everyone!

5. Per Skinner: USERNAME CHANGE AMNESTY: DUers can change their usernames until January 31. Instruction
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

From TODAY:

As promised, we are having a username-change amnesty period which will last from now until January 31, 2009. That gives everyone ten days to decide whether to change your name.

Our last username-change amnesty period was four years ago, following the 2004 presidential campaign. We probably won't hold another one until 2012 or 2016, so this is your big chance.

If you don't have a good reason to change your username, we would strongly suggest that you not do so. Username-changes are confusing and a little disruptive, which is why we do them very rarely. Last time we did this, a few people changed their usernames on a whim, then regretted it later and asked to change back. DON'T MAKE THAT MISTAKE. I can't remember if we granted their requests last time, and I'm hoping I don't have to deal with it this time.

Individuals who choose to change their usernames will have an automated signature line appended to all of their posts, which tells the world your former DU identity. This will make it easier for everyone to know who all these new people with the strange usernames are. This signature will appear for one month.

To change your username, click the link below and follow instructions. It's totally automated...

If you have any problems or questions, please post them in this thread.

Please kick and recommend this thread so more DUers can see it.

If the new name better suits you.

8. I think that your new name really does suit you well, Fire Walk With Me.
Of course, from this point on, you'll be referred to as either 'Fire' or 'FWWM'. :) Which do you prefer?

:thumbsup:

9. Whatever strikes you at the moment.
I don't think anything would offend me if it were acronym'd or altered, intentional or otherwise.

The name is in respect to David Lynch, who is one of the very few people to really "get it"...

Hope all's well with you and yours.

15. I just changed my name,
and you can do so up until Jan.31st. It's going to take me awhile to get used to my new name, but after much thought and meditation, today with the help of some synchronicity, it came to me. I have been too often misjudged because of my former name. This one feels appropriate. Having been born in January, and Janus can see behind as well as ahead, I chose him to ascend with!! I'd appreciate any feedback. Much love! JA

17. Thanks sweetie !!
Do you feel the name is suitable for me? It seems to fit me like a comfortable pair of shoes. It feels like my aura has changed since I chose it! :pals:

19. Yes I do. I like that you are claming your power
both in changing your name and by changing to one that still has discernment (Janus seeing many sides to an issue) and is full of action! :applause:

I don't know if my energy has changed with my name. It is more that I am acknowledging that I already have changed and putting a name to part of it.

18. I really like it, JanusAscending.
Synchronistically, today was the first that I'd heard of Janus. I don't remember where, but it surprised me to see you using it after having just heard of it. :)
