Can I change username please?
« on: 29 October 2013, 06:39 »
Can I change my username at all please?

When I registered my usual forum username (Gnasher) wasn't available.

So I joined under my username (see above left) which I normally use on non brand specific forums when my usual username has been used.

However I can see that the registered user of my preferred username has not been active since something like 2006 and is also only 16 anyway (although I realise the forum is open to all!)

Can I nick it? Cheers!

You wont be able to take over somebody elses username.

Even if you are allowed by Admin to change username, to something else, you still have to log in with the first username.

Not entirely true Len, JV changed my username a few weeks ago and I now use the new one to sign in with :wink:

Yeah that would be it, the old paranoia, chip on the shoulder, they always pick on me angle. Not that on the older forum software it wasn't possible.
