Changing user name

Hi,

I was wondering, is there any way for me to change my user name? I created it a long time ago, but its also the same name as one of my e-mail addresses and I realize that I have some very personal posts here and I don't want the chance of any family/friends to know it is me posting.

Thank you.

Changing usernames
Members cannot change their usernames once they register.
An admin may be able to change a member's username under certain circumstances:

If the username is long and stretches out the forum tables.
If a member wants to shorten it, take out letters or numbers.
If a member wants to shorten it to their nickname on the forums, and only if other members of the forum are already familiar with that nickname.
If a member accidentally registers with their full name and they decide that is not such a good idea.

Changing a member's username is up to the discretion of the admins. Normally the username change should be similar to the current username. We will not completely change a username to something else just because you don't like your username. It has to be pretty obvious to others that it is the same person. This would be far too confusing for everyone.

If you want to change your name completely you would need to re-register a new account. If you are a Premium Member and you want to register a new username, your Premium Membership can be transferred to the new account.

Thanks Sicy.

So I'll re-register. Is there any way you can delete my current account once I re-register so that all my posts disappear?

Disabling/Deleting accounts
We normally do not delete member's accounts. We may delete accounts that have no posts. If the account has many posts, completely deleting the account can significantly disrupt thread continuity. In that event, we may (if requested and at our discretion) disable your account. When we disable your account we do the following:

Possibly change the user name
Remove signature content
Remove any info from the profile that might be identifying or replace it with fictitious info
Remove all subscriptions
Remove avatar
Remove e-mail address or alter as well as personal web site info
Change account options to refuse PM's and E-mails from users and admins
After doing all this - ban account

Where you make use of the communication features to share information with other individuals, however, (e.g., sending a personal message to another Forum user) we generally cannot remove such communications. Also, if someone quoted your post, the original user name will be shown as having been quoted (which we cannot purge). If you would like to disable your account, please use the contact us form at the bottom of the page to make this request.
You can contact me in private if you'd like to discuss it further.
