An admin has to do it for you - but no worries, I am one. Got a name you want to use?

I mean, I certainly approve of the move away from "Osama bin Karl", but it says you signed up today. Why even start off with a name like that?

I used it because it is a in joke with me and my friends and I use it almost everywhere else. But since I'm not here to offend I thought I should change my username.

Done - however, I encourage users in the future to use the PM system to contact admins about this. It's a very committed change that requires some effort to do on our part, and I'd rather this thread not become too popular for frivolous name-changing by other users.

I agree with weasel and as thus have locked this thread.

There's a reason why the process is a bit gated. If people changed their names willy nilly we'd have a lot harder time knowing who is who, and not everyone can access the user notes log where the name history is stored.

In general you shouldn't change your name. If you do it should be a very careful and well-thought-out decision. Which also means picking the right name the first time, if possible, is a good idea too. That being said if you absolutely do need/want to change your name, you should send a private message to an administrator about it to get it taken care of. You don't need to tell us any reason for it, just don't do it too often.
