    Default Discussion: Name changes

    Per this thread, there has been a request to change a player's name.

    I don't believe this requires a Constitutional amendment, but I wanted to get opinions on the desirability of allowing name changes.

    I believe a reasonable approach is to allow 1 name change per year, only to a player who has no major league experience. We can start a thread prior to each season and allow people to post their requests.

    Thoughts?

    Shockingly, I think this is an excellent idea.

    i'm agree with Mali. Just be aware that you will be getting a slew of player's renamed by Morg and me with names like Quatro Quatro and D'Glester Hardunkichud.

    Great idea if admins have time/interest in this. Ultimately the 'same name' guys having names changed will make future trades and RFA less awkward for admins. For example, I have two Héctor Pérez's in AAA, both on my top prospect list, and eventually both will enter RFA the same season.

    My main fear is we will end up with five Quatro Quatros and seven Jackmerius Tacktheritrixes in the league...

    But yeah, this is good.

    That's the purpose of the public thread, to allow appropriate shaming if an owner gets too crazy.

    Yeah I think I got all the weird names out in my earlier post. I might consider a Japanese player named after his jersey number.

    Are we still going to do this? I would like to change 3B Anastasio Ortiz so that he isn't going to be confused with C Anastasio Ortiz
