Welcome to the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center. To better serve and protect you, the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center has been developed so that you can safely change your identity without all the hassle that comes along with it. So, whether you are wanted in 16 states or 6 forums, or you just want to disappear from the radar of a user you don't seem to get along with, the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center is for you! Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, the staff at the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center is able to quickly and safely alter your identity without you having to lose any old posts, old PMs, your profile or anything else. We also provide you a legal option of new user creation, because creating a second user account is punishable by death in 24.8 states. So, you've been thinking long and hard and finally have decided, that it's time to change your identity. Whether it be to avoid being seen by a material witness, a mob boss, your Ex-wife's pet sheep, or even your third grade teacher who gave you detention because you refused to stop hitting little Suzie (after all, she was being rather bothersome that day... wasn't she?), your identification security will be safe with us, as TZ Witness Relocation Staff will periodically check the thread and issue new identities to those in need. The staff of the TZ Witness Relocation Center has come up with some ground rules to make sure that your identity stays safe. First Your new name can not be shorter than 3 characters or longer than 15 characters. You may see some floating around that are currently longer than 15 characters, but as Big Tony said before he was sent to swim with the Fishes, those names were created back in the good ol' days... Second You can not choose a name that is identical/similar to another existing user. We understand that the best way to avoid your persuers is to become someone else... but we do not recommend you become an existing person. The person who had that name first won't like that. Third You can not choose the name of a real person that someone may mistake you for. You are in hiding, so why would you want to call attention to yourself with an identity like Tom Hanks or Bruce Timm or Bubba the Love Sponge. Unless you happen to be one of them, in which case we'll need 15 forms of identification (including blood tests, birth certificate and driver's license) and a portion of your salary. Fourth I) Existing Users - You can only change your identity once within a 6 month period. We know you want to confuse those who are after you, but if you want to change your name often we won't even be able to keep track of you, and for your own personal safety that could be rather dangerous. II) New Users - New Users have the option of changing their name within their first 3 months as a member. To give you an opportunity to determine whether or not you feel the name fits you and your posting style. Once the 3 months have elapsed, you're on the 6 month plan, just like everyone else. If you've decided to change your name, you have 6 months from that name change, otherwise you can change it at the normal 6 month point, should you decide you want to. Fourth Point Five (ADDED 9/24/06) If you post to have your name change, and then change your mind. CHANGE YOUR ORIGINAL REQUEST! The staff at the Witness Relocation Center works through the requests chronologically, therefore requests made at a later date will not be seen and effective 9/24/06 will be ignored. Fifth Some people may wish to know what has happened to you. It is recommended that you make a note of your previous User Name in either your title or your signature. Something like "Formerly Grandmaster B" will help your allies recognize you. If you are worried about being found out, if you receive any incriminating messages from those who we are protecting you from, just tell them that you really aren't that person you were asked to help throw you off the trail and to please not kill you. Sixth The Staff at the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center often stays very busy. We understand that many people want the name change the second it's posted. However, it does not work that way. We aim to make changes at least once a month, but there are times when that does not happen. If it's taking a while, please be assured that the change will take place, but there's a lot of beaurocratic red tap to wade through. Please do not spam the thread with messages stating the obvious. To do so, can result in the mishandling of your form and loss, which will postpone any name change you are seeking. The name changes will get done when we can get to it. That's all you need to remember. Everyone at the Toon Zone Witness Relocation Center looks forward to assisting you in your Identity Alteration needs. We appreciate your cooparation in all matters. Should any questions or concerns arise, please feel free to ask any staff member.
