Can I change my username and preserve my history or do I need to create a new account?
Yes. Just PM one of the admins. Use the Contact Form and request the name change.
Please look in the FAQ next time.
How is it that you always reply before me? Conspiracy theory mode active.
At least my post answered the question.
It says you can't change your name in the FAQ.
Thanks! Sorry, I did scan the FAQs but must have missed it.
I know a number of members who have changed their names.
And you need to actually read the FAQ section:
So my bad, use the Contact Form instead of PMing an admin.
Well were they relatively new w/ a low post count? The FAQ says that could happen.
No. They were not new and they had very high post counts.
Well it does say that you can contact them if you think you are a special case, but I would think they would rarely grant it though.
I guess I was wrong
With my experience on other sites I thought they would rarely grant it. Was wrong to assume they did the same here. Carry on fine sir.
Damn, I've PM'd someone now. Should I use the contact form as well?
^I think you'll be okay.
I've changed my username. (Very small change.)
If you want to change it slightly, I'm sure they would grant it, but if you want to change your name altogether I doubt they would allow it.
^^^That's not true, Firestar. I know a few members that have completely changed their usernames.
It couldn't hurt. I'd suggest mentioning that you PMed <insert admin name here> before you knew to use the Contact Form. The admins are pretty good at responding to PMs though.....perhaps wait it out an hour or so?
They change names. Experiences on other sites do not correlate with the experience here.
Ok everybody now I get that they change usernames here. No need for further telling me that.
Well, okay. I guess you would be more knowledgable on the subject than I. I still doubt that they'll do it, though. But that's just my opinion. You might get it changed.
I got my username changed.
I think that the admins take care of it on a user to user basis.
Some got it changed (Firestar, anjinha), some didn't.
I think that the admins will let you change it once though.
