    Hello all. Is it possible to change my forum name? If so how? Kinda tired of my 'handle', thought of one more appropriate to my frame of mind now...
    Thought I'd ask.
    Cheers

    Currently there is no way for a user to change their own username....

    Admin are able to do it, but it tends only to be done for specific reasons ... like if someone is using their full name but regrets it and would rather a bit of anonimity or their username relates to the place that they used to work.

    They did but it caused conflict between the front end CMS software and the forum software so it can't be done now.

    Apologies to Admins if it caused them some headaches, but I'd been trying to get my name changed for some time and jumped at the chance to change it myself. Thanks to Admins for sorting out the problems this may have caused...

    ...and to reiterate, dgcalvert has changed to Toadflax.
