User name change
« on: October 27, 2014, 07:00:23 PM »
Is it possible to get my user name changed? Not trying to hide from anyone (HONEST) just thought of a cooler name is all.
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

Cooler than hjon71 :?   I find that hard to believe :-D

You can't change your username, but you can change your display name.  You will still log in as hjon71,  but everyone will know you by your new cool name as that is what will be displayed.

Thank you for your timely reply. Admittedly nothing I change it to could be as cool as Robo.  :-D

Nice bit of info to have. I can change my display name to hjon71, make a few fun posts, then change it back.   :evil:   :-D

Actually the forum won't let you change to a name that already is taken.  Even if you could, as soon as you changed it back,  all of the posts you made would also be changed back.  :police:

Only problem is that when you change your name, all of your posts change and then they change back.
Sorry.
