Good question - I can't find it either. Never saw anyone ask this question either. Do you know how CP?

I don't think you can change your username once you create your account. Your account is fairly new, so you may want to just create a new one with the name you want on it.

as far as I know, once you choose a user name - that's it. About the only way I can think of getting it changed, is to PM "edhead" (Ed, the site owner) and ask him if he can change it for you. I can't change it, and neither can you ... so, if Ed can't do it - then you're stuck with it, or you can re-register under another user name and just not use this "email addy" one.

I was gonna take the "Jigster" off my handle months ago but there wasn't any way... It just stuck, like that biker they call "Fuzzy Bunny"... Stuck there forever.

Welcome back man. Just a few more post and you will have you guppy ranking back. Glad you were able to figure out what went wrong and were able to correct it.

is a lost cause. Sending him a PM is the only way to get in touch with him ... and that's dependant upon when he has time to sort thru his PM's.
Nonetheless ... re-registering is the easiest way, and only way for "members" to correct/change their User Name. Even with Admin abilities, I would have to re-register, myself, were I to decide to change my User Name. ;)

One suggestion, if/when you decide to re-register under a new User name .... look thru the "Members List" and make sure you're not duplicating an already valid member's User Name.

I found this thread because I need a slight change in my user name. Is there a process in place now?

Thanks!!!

Best advice I can offer is ... PM Ed (edhead) and ask him to change it to whatever you want it to be. You can't change it on your own ... you'd have to re-register, under the new user name, and just let this one stay as is.

ps ... if you do send a PM to Ed, don't expect it to be changed in a day or two. Ed checks his PM's, during the week, only once in awhile ... he's more likely to see it during the weekend. He will get around to it, after all the other "priorities" have been taken care of (like site fixes, modifications, updates, upgrades, etc).
