Members cannot change their usernames. Only on very RARE occasions, an admin can change usernames, but it is not done unless it is a special circumstance such as an error when first registering, or registering your first and last name as a username by mistake, etc.

You'd have to re-register with a new name if you'd like to change your name.

That's what I did, I re-registered and got a new account. The only problem is, your e-mail. You can't register under the same e-mail as the first username. Unless you have another e-mail address (like I do) then you can get a new name.

Yes it is actually.

Can you imagine if everyone were able to change their usernames? How confusing that would be??

If you dont like your username, get a new email address at yahoo or hotmail or whatever, and re-register.. that isnt that difficult.

well u see- people change their opinion, desires and so on. a nickname represents who you are, so very often it becomes old and strats sounding stupid.
then it's no fun at all to be known by that name...

Only if its a name you're not comfortable with, and even embarassed by

You know, with this thread, and the one over in the Lemonade Stand, is it me or do these threads have something to do with me getting a new username?I just think its weird that they began at the same time I got a new name.
