      Please help us for June & July   06/20/2017

      This month we're hoping for a little bit of a boost this month or next, in addition to covering the regular bills, we could benefit from some hardware upgrades. STEX Collector's Set gifts can now be sent to you via digital download as well as regular mail if you wish! Every donation dollar goes toward keeping Simtropolis online and humming along. Your contribution counts! Hardware Upgrades As our website community software improves with more and more features, and as we bolt on additional features such as chat, the increased load to handle all these new toys is taking the server a bit to task. You may have noticed that we'd been forced to temporarily disable the chat as we worked out allocating resources for more optimal performance. Following this, we've applied a number of 'soft' changes such as caching options and experimented with server configurations (nginx as proxy, for example), so the hardware aspect is also an area we'd like to focus on. The last time we upgraded hardware was back in 2012, prior to the release of SC13. Your contribution means a lot! Your donation will go toward helping us to 1.) migrate to a newer server or 2.) at least get some ram/cpu/storage updates and any other infrastructure hardware or services. Donate and Get a Gift or Donate Any Amount Thanks so much! - Dirktator & The Admins

Index of Display Name Changes

FAQ

 

Q. How can I change my display name?

  • First go to your Account Settings, located on your profile's dropdown menu (at the top).
  • Then click Display Name.
  • If the option is available, enter your new display name in the field provided.
  • Finally, click Save Changes to complete the operation.

 

Q. What's the difference between a username and a display name?

Previously, display names were slightly different from usernames. But from ST8, it seems the login system has been unified, meaning the changed name is the one you'll need to access your account.

 

Q. How often can my display name be changed?

Reports suggest it's currently 1 year after your registration date, and each year thereafter.

 

Q. Why can't I sign in after changing my display name?

Your display name change will be the name you need to sign in with. Starting from ST8, your old name will not be used anymore.

Well during one of the updates a nice Administrator changed my account completely from N_O_Body to A Nonny Moose.  I don't think that counts because my login name changed as well as my screen name.

- Mastof --> Forthwall

- 10000000000000 --> Ace❤

- swat-medic --> JakeMD

- Archean --> Follarch

- k50dude --> k50

- wcraig --> RepublicMaster

 

And on the ol'timers pack (these were not made with the current change tool but, as A Nonny Moose explained, using a quite more complicated system that made this situation quite exceptional back on ST 6 and prior incarnations):

- skigeek --> Meg

- Cheese89 --> Kevin

 

I'll edit this post if I come up with a few more.

-The Dirktator was also known as Dirk a couple years back.

-Correct me if I'm wrong, but Yoshisisland went to The Jazzmaster and now to just Jazz.

Thanks guys, they've been added to the list. :)

 

It took a bit of experimenting, but to improve the layout, I've re-formatted the data inside a table. Before, I did notice things were a bit jumbled up when viewed in different browsers (such as Chrome).

 

As for name changes made in earlier versions of the site, to avoid confusion, I thought It'd be better to include these in a separate table. Also, if a user changes their display name more than once (such as Yoshiisland), just hover over the new name to see the list of changes.

Nice job on this. I know this has come up for me when downloading. I keep things as backups by the creators' names, and it sometimes makes things "fun" when they change names. One that I can think of off-hand is w_swietwoot - used to be wasoethoudt. If I notice more I'll post.

Thanks again. I couldn't find the name Areallybigship, but just realised it's now been changed to Titanicbuff with a capital letter. :P

 

By the way, there sure are a lot of changes recently -- must be the new trend!

You forgot Leech10 → Lyhoko Leaci

 

A bunch more pre-7.0 changes that really aren't relevant anymore:

 

Scrappy_dogz → Scrappy (2003)

Xsaro → Zza Xsaru (2003)

bigfatcowjustabigfatuglycow → bigfatcow (2004)

fosterk12345678910 → fosterk (2005-ish)

djrules5454_simtropolisedition → djrules5454 (2010?)

Craig actually wasn't a pre-ST7 change. I remember him saying that he still logs in under abcvs, so yeah, that was a display name change only.

 

Anyway good list, helpful. I can think of at least one more person, but I'll leave the hunting to you guys. :P

LOL! Cockatoo was Cockatoo-XXXXXX where these were a bunch of numbers I can't remember and they don't appear under the display name change software.

Ah, sorry Cockatoo, I thought we were missing someone important! ;)

I've also added Lyhoko Leaci and djrules5454. For the other pre ST 7.0 ones, I've decided to leave them out, as these members are now seemingly inactive.

 

For some, I've tried to give a reasonable estimate of the change date. But a few of these are still marked as "Unknown". So if anyone has any ideas, I'll add an estimation date or year.

 

By the way, would it be helpful if this was pinned for reference?

Just saw that zulu2065 changed his nick to Kifflom112 if I haven't made a mistake. I don't know when he made that change, though.

I changed my display name to OcramSeattle a year ago or so. I still log on using Ilikeseattle. I go by AzemOcram in most places.

Oh, and one other thing: I noticed there was a typo in the table. "00000000000000" is supposed to be "10000000000000". ;)

I really only have been Mr Saturn64 for 6 months?  It feels like forever.

 

I like seeing username change sometimes, it shows that our community has been ever-changing.

 

And Nonny, I've always loved your username.  It's so clever.  Having "A Nonny Moose sounds like "Anonymous"  :yes:

That's the whole point.  Of course it also leads to the Moose Factory.  Moose Factory is actually an Indian reservation across the Moosonee river from the town of Moosonee on James Bay.

      I see some strange things in the gallery drawings Simtropolis lately. Some authors places where a large number of drawings. I think - we need a limit of accommodation. I think that for a series of similar drawings, there city journals...
      Hi, Simtropolians - What do You think about this?
    • By Silur
      I'm curious to know Your opinion about the website Simtropolis. Today I started editing one site in my country. And I realized that this is far from the quality that I see on Simtropolis. How do You compare the quality of most of the other sites? Are there any sites built even more conveniently?  Are there any ideals in this world? Thank you.

      Thank you Dirk for Your website. You have gathered here for a large community. All new city engineering games are here. This is the perfect solution. I can see and SC4 and SC3000 and Skylines here. It's fine - you made the right choice. Attracting SC3000 and Skylenrs gives a chance to survive SC4. Few of us with SC4... Thank You once more...

      Hello everyone,
      As we know, the SC3000.com and SC4ever.com look to be not maintained except for availability. No more features were added to these site. And, some interactive features are disabled due to merging the site with Simtropolis. By this, I'm deciding to start old content migration from these site.
      Intro
      The project missions are to provide old contents about SimCity 2000, 3000, and 4 to new users and to preserve old contents. Our vision is want to biggest preservative in the SimCity community. There aren't more info to be discussed here.
      Progress
      We are copied contents from SC4ever.com Knowledge Tree (this is very important thing) completely and we'll going to SC3000.com content migration. Support us by reading the "Contribute" section.
      Contribute
      Want to contribute? You can PM me with including some data: your name and your interest (are you want to copy all contents or SC3000.com/SC4ever.com). I'll review your profile (new profiles are allowed, but they are must active and has time and commitment to copy the contents). The content copying is allowed by @Dirktator as long as you don't selling the data and with proper attribution (including the source site and the original author).
      I hope, you want to join my team and give benefits to all.
      Thank you.

We've experiencing slightly increase (I don't know the data so I can't estimate it accurately) on expenses because our user growth. Don't hesitate to donate us.
