This is probably for one of the moderators.<p>Is it possible to simply change my username? Or does this basically require re-registering the new username?<p>When I go to "My Profile", the personal profile link implies that you can change your username. But when you go there, the username is "fixed", and not in an editable box.<p>My reason for this is as follows: As a general practice I am wanting to get away from using a username that is basically my actual name, for privacy reasons. I'm intending to do this on all of the several forums that I participate in. After I make the change I'll probably mention my old username in any postings for a little while, to avoid confusion, and for continuity's sake.<br>

Re: Is it possible to change your username? (reschleicher)

I'm pretty sure it is possible. One of the site admins offered to change my screen name when I posted that I'm buying a ruby red XC70 T6 through Bob Kennedy and OSD.<p>Try sending an IM or email to the site administrator Chris at [email protected] (screen name), [email protected] (email)

Actually, it is silver and black two-tone, but Silver&Black seemed a little long. It would also have Oakland Raiders connotations, although I wouldn't really mind since I'm a Raiders fan, or at least trying to be....).

I've had a person who still frequents this forum make an attempt to find out where I live, etc., after threatening me in this forum. Some people have a problem seperating online rigorous debate with reality. He had his feelings hurt, probably because I called him a racist after he showed himself to be...er...a racist. I don't blame him for being upset. But I removed all personal info from the site. He's sick. Unfortunately, there are some sick people out there. A very very small %, but all it takes is one.

Wish I knew it was possible to change usernames - I'm still posting under the guise of a car that went away years ago!<p>I suppose the only appropriate username now would have "traitor" or "defector" in it though <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
