  • Who do I contact to change my username?

    I've been a user here for a while, and dont want to make a new account.
    My username is my real name (yeah im asian).
    I just do not feel comfortable with my real name and was stupid signing up with it.

    Can a mod or someone help me out please?

    Just make a new account.

    Also, realize I assume you're 14 years old or so judging by your username so I'm going easy on you.

      The long standing policy of this forum is they do NOT change user names.
      Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

        You can change your forum username in settings, under My Account > Edit Email and Password. It may be bad etiquette to do so, but it's an available option.

          That is obviously a fairly new option from one of the software updates that always screw us up.

            That could be a handy feature, but to discourage trolls the account profile should show previous names and dates of change.

            Don't forget to laugh today. The more implausible it seems, the more you need to.

              I concur with MargeG 110%.

                Hey, sanitizer, how about Monk?

                Kind of a shame to respond to this, actually. When you are the most recent commenter the front page reads "Who do I contact to change my sanitizer" which could be going in all sorts of deeply disturbing directions around here.

                Oh,and to clarify, I have no idea how hard that would be, especially with it apparently now being automated? From what I've read, this is a very small staff (one?) running the site which is probably already too time-consuming.

                  Just as a word of caution, if you do this you may lose the ability to login to your account due to how the officer.com website and forums are integrated. This feature hasn't been tested, it was added with the recent upgrade.

                  In the past we've avoided changing usernames except under special circumstances to prevent issues with logging in.

                  If you'd like to request a change to your forum username, the best course of action would be to reach out to the support staff here here.

                    Thanks all and I'm not 14 , just my favorite number : )

                    1. I'm going to try that now... if I can't login it would suck so much but here goes nothing.
                    2. I tried that long ago and they never responded
