I was just wondering if there is any way to change your username / display name, without having to register with a new email address??

I did find Display Name History under Profile, but couldn't find where to change it?

There are several tabs along the top, each of which reveal a number of settings pages:

•Personal Messenger Options
Here you can choose to disable your personal messenger, or configure how you would like to be notified when you receive a new message.


•Posting Settings
Here you can configure global posting settings such as the visual text editor which makes formatting be shown as it will appear when posted, and the flash uploader which makes uploading multiple files quicker and easier.

If you are running out of space, you can delete some old attachments by selecting the checkbox on the right-hand side of the table for the attachments you want to delete, and then pressing the Delete Selected button at the bottom of the table.

no, that's what my page looks like.

what I posted was from the 'help' section, the section I highlighted indicated to me that we don't have permission to change our name.

sorry, maybe someone else knows more?

Yes, I read that in help too and thought the same thing. Just figured they wouldn't have a username "history" if there wasn't some way to change it?? Thanks for your help, tho. Much appreciated!

I could give it a try.
I'll send you a PM.
Just answer it with what you would like your name changed to (and why).
