This afternoon ToxicShock and I have made some new changes to the nicknames/profiles table:
Firstly, we added another batch of already claimed nicknames that were pending for the last week. If you got the "This name is already taken" error even though you have already claimed your name, try again now.
Secondly, we updated 99 profile IDs of people with multiple and/or messed up profiles that were imported from GameSpy by ToxicShock. For those people, their stats in the Shatabrick.com database were not matched up with their nicknames of choice and thus were not displayed ingame. This should be fixed now. As an unfortunate side effect, however, the buddy lists of those profiles are deleted so that these profiles don't have any buddies and others also don't have those profiles in their buddy list any more. You can see a list of affected nicknames/profiles below:
