Can user name be changed?

Can user name be changed please?  I have spelling errors in mine, which I shall not be able to remember. Either drunk or typos,
and I would very much like to change the spelling or the name entirely.
Many thanks

Re: Can user name be changed?

Is this your forum username or your main account username?
If it's your forum name then you can simply use this link to change the display name.
If it's your main account name then this is a far more tricky beast to do.

If you want to PM me what you want it changing to, I'll sort the display name out for you.

A bit puzzled.
If I go to http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php?action=profile;sa=account it would appear that the display name may be modifiable.
No - I am not going to try. Grin
Edit - link made general

I can confirm the display name is modifiable. I know because that over there <--- is not my username  Wink

Re: Can user name be changed?

I know what I've done ;), I linked you to my profile and that caused the problem. Try this link instead.

Re: Can user name be changed?

Anyone can update their own display name, however I've said in a previous reply that I'd be happy to do it from a PM Cheesy
