How to update profile name, email address and password

Having recently strated to use a new email address, AND also been  advised that it's not a good idea to use a plus net user name as a forum profile name, how can I change all these? There seems to be no way to do this !

Not sure if this will work, but if you log out from the community then try registering a new community user ?

 

Edit : though the new user would not link to all your existing posts etc

I did think of that , but I don't think thats acceptable as the original forum profile and name remain on the system

Bare in mind that creating a 2nd account is against the Forum RulesWink
