I don't see anything there to change the username.

Hello, I am in receipt of your request to change usernames.

It is quite hard to change usernames on the system and you are now the second person to ask this. I will be looking into it and get back to you on if i can do it.

Well, I didn't try it but if you can edit your profile can't you edit your username? Or would one have to delete everything and re-enter, or rejoin?

I tried pretty much everything in the profile edit mode but no success. Perhaps deregistering is the only way. In the meantime, thanks for looking into this for me.

All,

Changing usernames on the system is quite difficult as it is the unique key for everything on the system; the forum, website, login system, etc.

I have done it once or twice in the past and I am waiting to see if I can figure out an easy way to do it. In the middle of that I needed to do other items and just have not gotten to this yet.

If you want to change your username please respond to this thread so I have a list when I do get to it.

Thank you!!!

Hello,

The slash "/" is a special character and cannot be used in the username.

I hope this helps!
