You can't. In general you just have to create a new one. There have been cases when thomas or Maciamo have changed someone's handle, but I'm not sure what the circumstances where for the change. However, I would say just to register with a new name.

I think it is better to ask us to change your name rather than create a new ID. What do you want to change it to ?

Well, regarding my user name which I'm very happy with, is it possible for one of the site bigwigs to capitalize the "f" in flashjeff? Being the anal knucklehead I am, that's been a wee bit of a sore spot for me for awhile now. That's all I ask.

Hummm????

Maybe a new admin position "Keeper of the Names" needs to be established? I could change my name and avatar daily; soooo Kool!

I'd like to test a few names. How about /\/\/\/\/\/\/\ for a bit?

How about another one: \/\/\/\/\/\/\/ . That's much better. Yeah, I like that much, much better.

I think change of names should only be allowed when a member is here for a long time, and even then you should be only alowed to add something to your name, or capitalize it or something like that.. but not completely change name... * my opinion*

greetings folk, i myself was a fellow with another name, i asked for it to be changed, so i was better known as my real name and not a made up internet alias. Plus some freak was sending abusive mail to me and now i changed my name he doesn't have any idea to who i am. So its all good.

For the record i ask to be known as Jack not Jack2(that was already taken)

I've got 22 more avatars of Mie and Kei in the queue which will take me right up to February 2008, and I'm sure I can dig up more by that time. Nothing like a challenge!

Just what on earth are your Sumo Wrestlers doing to each other, Frank?

... it's faintly disturbing ... :)

Will you guys change my user name to Just plain ol "Mitsuo". I would just rather not type the extra three letters and I don't want it that long. (Im lazy) Thanks, much appreciated!
