How to change my screen name?

Discussion started on

Hi, I've been here anonymously and with a pseudonym.  Now that's seeming kind of silly and I'd like to be here as myself.  Is there a way to change my screen name and leave my old screen name completely behind -- in no way associated with the old screen name?  (I haven't trashed anybody but I've asked some quesions under the pseduonym that i'd rather not have associated with me.)  Is this possible?

You'd have to start a new account, which you are only allowed to do with the permission of the administrators.  (Normally, it's one account per person.)  You can change your screen name but all of your old posts will be listed with your new name.

Unfortunately, I'm not an admin any more (awww!) so we'll have to wait until one comes along. :)

You only have to change your screen name in your profile. Anything you have posted as Annoymous, will stay as Anon... and won't show as your real persona, anymore than they show as your current board name.  If there are a few posts you'd like to have removed before you make the change, just contact any of the mods for help in removing those threads before you make your name change.
