We have encountered a problem

You can only change your name once every 30 days

Please go back, correct this problem, and resubmit your entry.

Thank you.

BRB, gonna fire up the DeLorean.

Meanwhile I predict Dudemuss will be next to post with something like, " still waiting for the post that predates this one! ; ) "

still waiting for the post that predates this one! ; )

What the flux (capacitor) are people blathering on about?

Phaete August 21 2011 12:09 PM EDT

Tried setting your clock 30 days ahead? xD

Lochnivar August 21 2011 12:42 PM EDT

still waiting for the post that predates this one! ; )

So if you invented time travel are you telling me your first act would be to toy with the CB forums... not gambling/investing, not averting a disaster... not even stopping your wedding day foolishness... just trolling the net.

God I hope you aren't the one who invents time travel.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 21 2011 1:14 PM EDT

maybe i already have...

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] August 21 2011 1:15 PM EDT

tomorrow i shall hide a post five years ago just to prove it!

what, dont like your name? you could say you ran off at the mouth and now regret it? ;)

Fishead August 21 2011 4:51 PM EDT

Yeah, I'm stuck with this poop name too :P

Lochnivar August 21 2011 4:57 PM EDT

you should all send money to TourneyPrizes....

We all know TP gets rid of stuck-on poop.

Zenai August 21 2011 4:59 PM EDT

What poop is going on around here? Don't like a crappy name? Well smooth over an admin with some money and they may be inclined to change that stinker of a name ahead of time back in the day. (Just to follow the time travel theme)

Fishead August 21 2011 5:21 PM EDT

But the smell will still linger long after the poop is gone.

Zenai August 21 2011 5:25 PM EDT

Febreeze it!

AdminNightStrike August 21 2011 8:08 PM EDT

Haha... so CB has a templated page generator for warnings. Depending on if you tell it that the warning is from user input or otherwise, you get that extra "go back and try again" stuff.

someone[onabreak] September 8 2011 10:38 AM EDT

Now, it actually has been 30 days, and it still won't let me change it. :(

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] September 8 2011 10:47 AM EDT

it is probably like most other things on cb, this is the 30th day right now so the feature will be available after cache flush. which means by this time tomorrow you should be able to change it.
