    I would like to change my username but I don't know how. Is there a way to change your username or is changing usernames not allowed?

    You get one username change. A Moderator will probably PM you with more details.

    Hello PM! Just researching how to go about changing my unimaginative user name and ran across this thread. Can someone please help me accomplish this? Many thanks!

    First off, search the username you want and make sure it's not taken.

    Then PM (private message) any moderator with what username you would like (no more than 15 characters) and we can change it for you.

    Looking here to figure out how to change username. I don't see how to PM whomever in order to request the change. Please help?

    You can PM any of the moderators. Just find one of our posts, like mine here for example, or Happy Chook's above, hover your cursor over my/her username above the avatar pic. You'll get a drop down with amongst the other options "Send PM". Just click on that.

    We allow one username change per member.
