    As the title says, I want to change my screen name, but don't want to do a new account. How do I make that happen ?

    You can only change your username to your real name, so Ive been told.

  4. ^ This.

    To do so you'd need to PM a mod (maybe even JT).

    Luckily my screen name is my real name.

    That, and you should PM an administrator.

    Is there a difference between screen name and user name? Ive always used the words interchangeably.

    I meant my real name. Although the students at work refer to me as 'Mr. Skies'.

    Yes. Bernie Skies. Need a used car? I'm the best salesman on the lot.

    I changed my username once.
    It took great strength and courage as I trekked through the enchanted and dark forest of G'mail.
    In the forest I met the civilization of mods as they called themselves.
    As I explained my journey I was introduced to a single mod who offered to help.
    Kindly he asked, may you bring us a shrubbery in exchange for passage through the forest to meet the all knowing Paul, Then and only then shall you find your true exchange.
    I was then told about Paul and that he would be the only one capable of such power to change one's username.
    So on I went to gather a fine shrubbery of the finest green coat.
    When I returned with the shrubbery it was said to be inefficient and I was sent back for another and another!
    Finally upon returning with the third of the shrubbery (the finest of the three only maybe a tad droopy on one side) I was then granted a change of username only to my dismay I was not allowed to meet the great Paul!

    Oh well, all is well now I guess, and I am indeed very happy with my username reflecting my real name but still sometimes when the night is late and the moon rides high I still wonder what it might be like to meet the grand and noble Paul.

    I hear you have to be stripped bare then kneel on the cold stone floor of the Admin moderation forum chamber and be judged.

    What would you change it to Buzz? Let me approve first. Then I'll get some strings pulled.

    Well there was that, among other things of course, it's just not really quite as integral to the process as the shrubbery, nor is it really anything outside of my average day, thus the reason I left that out.
    It's frigg'n crazy how perfect that thing has to be.

    The things I herd of Eric 618 are unheard of!:D

    You should change your avatar to Beryl The Peril methinks.

    I was also told I could only change these stupid numbers to my real name, so I passed. My name is nowhere on the interwebs and that's how I like it.
