Default Re: Editing / Changing Name

If I recall correctly, the option of changing your own screen name was allowed early onóit's been many years nowóbut it was confusing as hell when someone would repeatedly change their screen name. An-noy-ing!

An admin is the only one who can change screen names now. I'd recommend leaving a user name unless it's a big deal.

Didn't know that.... Thanks. Just one of the subtleties of difference between the legal systems of Scotland and the rest of the U.K. Land and house sales/purchases are also slightly different, aren't they?

Yes, it seems quite complicated. Lots of missives and things.

But back to the original question: how to change the way your name is displayed in the forum? I'd like to know this too because the forum would not let me use my usual, and preferred, username.

Default Re: Editing / Changing Name

I remember changing my name on the Forums after dropping my step father's name and changing it in court to my biological father's name. If I remember correctly It was changed by an Admin after giving an explanation of the reason for the change.
Other Forum members contacted me about how they also had their step father's name and wanted to know how I did it.
It was easy for us as my Aunt suggested we do it and if we did she would pay the court and legal fees for all of us. It was an easy transition as I was known by both names all my life. This change was no disrespect to my step father as he did the best he could.
I post this just so that other Forum members can see situations where the change of their names on this Forum is not unique to their situation.
