Exclamation How to Get a New D-Name

Recently, there have been some questions in the Community on how to reset your D-Name, and change it. This can be accomplished by following this step by step process. (Remember to ask your parents before you go online, mates!)

Go to Pirates Online's Website
Go to Help on the left hand side
Click Contact Us
Log In
Enter Live Chat
Request to Reset Your D-Name
Confirm some of Your Personal Info
Go to Account Services
Click Manage Account
Enter Your Personal Information
Under Account Details, you should see D-Name: Guest ###
Type in your D-Name that you desire

*Within 1-2 days, visit account details again to see if your name was accepted.
If your D-Name was accepted, it should replace your current Guest ### in the game

I changed mine years ago when I told live chat that I had used my high schools name, I did not know at the time that others would be able to see it.

I tried this, but they only said they don't do D-name changes.

I think they would change d-names if you'd put personal info in it or it was offensive. I don't think they'd change d-names just because you want it changed. I guess it's because they want to prevent confusion and accidental friend deletion, but I don't think it's fair that you can't get a d-name change whenever you want...

This is why I hate going into Live Chat; it's so awkward and they tend to contradict themselves.

I had my D-Name changed this past summer. There wasn't anything wrong with my D-Name other than it was an old nickname from middle school, and I wanted it changed to something newer. All I had to do was confirm my email and birthday and the Live Chat rep reset it.
