    Is there any way to change my signon name short of registering anew? Can't find an option in personal details.

    I use this name for a lot of stuff online. It's never taken and it's unique. Long story short, "poker playing ogre"= Pogre. Poh-grr.

    I highly doubt there's an option to change your name. Many forums don't even have the feature. Are you wanting to use the same email or something? You joined not long ago. You could just do another account. Maybe put something in your sig so folks know who you are for a couple weeks.

    I just don't like the idea of having my name out there. Guess I didn't realize it would display when I registered. Silly of me.

    Anyway, you're probably right... Probably ought to re-register. I'll wait until I move into the new place in July so everything will be fresh.

    Agree also. No need to wait until July either, really. It's not like moving and a forum name change would have any effect on each other.

    Dean;

    I just went into the forum control panel and modified your name to: DHicks just to test it. Let me know what you prefer and I can edit it again.

    I have the same issue. I tried to change it myself but couldn't find how. I did a forum search and found this thread.
    I don't want my name posted out there.
    Could an Admin please change my user nane to "HF Integrale" please?

    You only have 3 posts on these forums. Just start a new account and stop using this one.

    I don't think they can. I've moderated forums and that function has never been available. Maybe admin could do it, but I dunno. It'd be kind of messed up if they could, think about it.

    He made a new account, look above, still the same name...

    *Edit: Just saw Gene's post above. I was thinking a mod can't do it.

    Ah, I assumed in any case since in another thread he is using his new name....which turns out to be a second identity (the one he mentions above).

    Gents,
    I edit a couple of small boards, and as a Mod you can't usually do it in most software but an Admin can.
