I thought I'd post this, especially for older members. In case you haven't noticed, I recently altered my username. Slightly. It used to read "Kumarstouch." Our tireless leader, Edward Appleby, used to have is handle in lower case letters as well.
Unless I'm mistaken, any user can change his or her handle at any time by entering the User Control Panel (near the top of the page on the left). Once in the UCP, click on the "Profile" tab and then "Edit account settings." If I remember correctly, I also had to change my password when I changed my username.
The reason I made a post about this is because when I was looking through our archives for the old rank list, I stumped across the post from Dignan88 on January 14, 2004:
How can I change it?
I don't like usernames with numbers behind them.
Well sorry it took so long, D88, but you finally have an answer. Though, sadly, somebody else just registered "Dignan" a couple of weeks ago.
Now if more some reason you can't change it, that only mods can, let me know and I'll do it for you.Edward Appleby's edit:
If you do change your name, please post your new name in this thread so we know who you are.
