Can I change my user name from hrgreene to Shargull without re-registering as a new member?

Also, if I receive respect points on my user CP, but it doesn't show up on my posts after a few days, is there something wrong, and if so, should I contact someone?

Thank you.

You don't get a green box for every reputation but each box is a series of them. But it does show up right away. You can change your User Name in the store once you have 1000 points.

Updated: Changing User Names is no longer an option here.

Sorry to bug about this again, but, in the shop under username options I only saw change font, glow, color, bold, italics, underline, shadow, but no change user name. What am I missing?

I believe that option was recently removed by the administrator for an unrelated reason

Hey Turkey, thanks again for the points. Do you know where it was moved to?

It hasn't been moved, but removed. Send a pm to William to ask for some help.

The option to change User Names has been removed due to security reasons. There has been way too many people changing User Names which makes it difficult to keep track of members and presents a security breach here.

I suggest people pick the name they'd like to be known as and stick with it as is done in other forums so we won't have to be bothering the Administrator with this stuff and leaving his time for the important matters.

Well said, Lady Hobbs! We have indeed had some problems with people changing their user names.

We make adjustments to the forum such as this to keep things as safe as possible for the members.
