Username Help

  • Is it possible to change my username. When I signed up years ago I used this username but in the past 2 years I have been moving everything over to a new username. I would like to change mine on here. I went to my profile settings and it wont let me do it. Is there a way a mod can do it?

  • @agnostichef: We're sorry to report that while a username change on our backend is technically possible, it is never recommended. When your username is established, it is paired with data elements that must remain in tact to provide a seamless experience when using different site functions. If we change your username it's possible that your old username would still surface on certain aspects of the site and cause overall data confusion. We apologize for the inconvenience, but the best course of action here might include signing up for a new username.

  • You could always consider creating a new account in order to replace your current one with the username of your choice.
