    Change username?

    Is it possible to change my displayed username? Or do I have to just open a new account?

    There is no Display Name separate to username but it is possible to change username by PMing an admin.

    why not

    tcnONlocation

    ?

    that's if the problem is due to a limit on how many characters you are allowed

    Um, can I change my username to pballard, if pballard no longer wishes to call himself pballard anymore?

    Things aren't going too badly, however I suspect that the new pballard will be able to give you a more detailed response (as soon as the old pballard decides on a new username that is. )

    Well I wanted to change it from pballard to peterballard, but it's no big deal, which is why hadn't followed on from my original request.

    Why I don't understand is why you claim to want the username pballard... please explain

    This could be heading for a Pythonesque moment:
    "I'm Peter Ballard ..."
    "NO, I'M Peter Ballard!"
    "Wait a sec, I'm Peter Ballard!"
    "Look here, I'm Peter Ballard ... and so is my wife!"

    Err, so you're saying the ElevatorEscapee is really a Bendigo resident called Peter Ballard??

    I must have missed this, Peter. If you are still interested please send me a PM and I can action.
