    I believe you cannot do that. Only mods can.

    Ideally, I'd change mine too as it doesn't reflect my main activity but like the folks said, I don't think you can.

    Oh dear that's a shame. Would make a lot more sense if I had used my name in the first place. It's confusing when you meet people in real life.

    As said: you can't - it makes things very complicated. People get more confused than they already are, etc. Imagine if we let everyone change their U/N ...

    We do change a U/N - but only in very stringent situations / cases. And onlyif the post count is very low.

    With the above in mind, I'm obligated to say it's against forum rules to create a second ID on BCUK. It'll earn a permanent ban. You choose the name when you joined up, so you're stuck with it.

    dear Xenon,

    what some people seem to have done is have their name as a signature at the bottom of the post, probably in the same situation.

    Regards

    Cuthbert
