Changing Profile Name

Travel Forums System Talk Changing Profile Name

My profile name was created in haste.
I would like to change it to something like 'Stormovik' or 'NerdWrangler'.
Is it easy to do, and can I still keep my posts and messages?

Changing your user name is very easy to do. Go to your Control Panel. Under Profile, there is a link for Edit Profile. That brings up your profile information. Look down towards the bottom of the page for Your Core Information. First one is username. Once you enter the new one, click Update Profile and viola! It will only change your username, but will not change any of your stats. Your posting count and posts will remain the same. It does change your name throughout the site. Since you have been quoted in places - the quoted text within the responses will still show you as cobbana. Other than that - your new name will appear on the left side of every post you have made since joining.

Intersting choices...

Bear in mind there is a 10 character limit. So 'nerdwrangler' won't be an option :)

Thanks.
Now I just have to rub my two remaining brain cells together and come up with the definitive profile name.

two brains cells, eh? hum... what about changing your profile name to 'binary', then? ;-)

And I was going to cast my vote for "nerdwrangler"... Oh well...
