Change Username?

I thought I remembered a way to change one's username, but I can't find it now that I need it. Due to a boat change I'd like to go from svGinRhumby to svPearlLee.

Re: Change Username?

IIRC, there isn't one.
Contact a Mod and plead your case.

Send me a cheque, and once it has cleared, I'll see what I can do.

Re: Change Username?

Take a look at the OP's name now. I'd guess that Nigel1 did it at the same time he made his "funny response"

It bounced, I'm just thinking of a new suitable name for svPearlLee

No kidding, if anyone needs a user name change, just ask one of the poor mods.

Re: Change Username?

What does 'sv' stand for on boats overseas?

I'm familiar with 'mv' but not 'sv'?

Re: Change Username?

If you change your username does it change it for all your previous posts so that there is a connection, or trail, for the prosecutors to follow? I realize it might be confusing to see a new name.

Try tracking down svGinRhumby now, the trail has gone cold!

I may have to go in to a witness protection program. To protect the guilty.
