You can't AFAIK. You can sign up for a new account and get a new username that way, but you would lose any post history. If post history is a major concern that you want to keep it, admins maybe able to make the change for you in the database but I'm not 100% sure of that and it would be their call.

Hmm, I've actually wondered about changing my username as well... Acid sounds way too druggy for new people who don't know me.

Funny thing is that nickname has stuck with me since 6th grade when someone called me it by mistake cause he didn't remember my name, oh childhood... :P

@Acidyo


You may already know this (if so then please accept my apology, my intention was not to offend you) but if you have access to the database (mysql, or any database that this site uses) you could change your username (or anyone's username) in just a few seconds.

Moreover, if you are using phpmyadmin you'll be able to modify the database VERY easily. Just locate the table and column were the usernames are stored.

It may be that the mods on this forum only have access to the phpBB admin of this site and not the host and database. If so, you may have to contact Roger Ver for access to host and database.

If anyone needs to have their username changed, send me a PM and I'll sort it out.
