How do I change my user name? I can't figure it out when I go to edit the settings.

Contact an "Administrator." They can change your user name.

Thank you for the replies. I think I'll probably just keep it.

Yup.

I recently changed to a whole separate account under a separate email address (can't use the same email address to create a new account). It's not hard, and it can be good to have a user name that does not give too much info about yourself.

A board administrator can change your user name in 30 seconds. Go to Board Index, at the bottom of the page find "Legend" and click on "Administrators." from the list of administrators click on one of them listed as site administrator (probably Jennifer or Grafxsmith) then under "Contact," send them a private message requesting your name change.

I'm the forum administrator on another forum that uses the same software and I've changed user's names. It's easy.
