    The forum rules prohibit names changes on accounts


    An alternative is to add your real name on the second line (just below your forum name) - you can do that in your control panel.

    Do you really need an answer to that?



    Can you close your acct? Nope - but a mod can ban it for you .


    Can you open an acct in your 'real' name? Of course you can - but any posts you have stay with the old acct. You do need to ask the former acct be banned - if a mod notices two accts...might ban them both.

      So, you can after all and specially if there are no posts yet.

      The question is: why not to change user name to something more useful.

      Maybe I can't see harm why changing user name would harmful for forum
      and if so, please show me one specially if all records would stay intact..

    another option would be you update your user title

    Go to "User CP" select "Update Details" then use your real name in the "Custom User Title"

    It doesn't matter if you agree or not - you are arguing several rules in the past day or two. No one is obligated to give you examples or debate the rules with you.


    The rules are posted here and members are required to adhere to them.
