The return of last names



The lab blogged yesterday about changes coming to the grid in January.  These include changes to event hosting, a new level of premium membership, marketplace fees.. and the return of last names!

Premium users will, for an additional fee, be able to change their first and last names!

You can of course choose any first name, but the last name will be from a list curated by the lab.   This is how it originally worked all those years ago.

Old last names from way back will not be available, but a user can select from an exhaustive list of new last names.

Additionally the lab is asking for name suggestions, so if you have one in mind you would really like to see, now would be a good time to suggest it!

You can see the full  official blog post here.
