If anyone can advise how you change your user name that'd be great!

Any moderator can chime in on this. I can't find the change name location either. It's not under Edit my profile. It looks like this is an issue for quite a few new users.


Also, maybe there is something that can be done in the Sign Up process to ask the new user for their First and Last name, and automatically use that as the user name?

Good to know it's not just me. maybe I should contact the moderators of the site and ask directly, I never knew it was a 'real names forum only' site and have had a lot of firm comments since with no one being able to help in changing it.


Thanks for the message.

When a new member registers, this is what they see:


Attached File  register.JPG   15.58KB   11 downloads


So why are people registering without using their full names? I don't know.


Only I, the administrator, can change an account/display name.

Yeah, you should ask the administrator to do it.
