I'd like to change my username. Would it be possible to do so without creating a whole new user?

I can see there is no UI for this functionality, but maybe a site administrator can update it in the forum database :P

What do you want the new username to be?

Actually, I'd just like to capitalize "Meanderer." So, my username would be: Iambic Meanderer

Thanks!

I capitalized that letter for you.

Incidentally, the usernames are case insensitive as far as logging in, searching, sending PMs, etc. is concerned.

Could you change my username too? I'm using an alternate name here in onlinebookclub, not my actual name. So I don't want anybody to think I'm plagiarising reviews from my own goodreads page where I have put my actual name ?
Fuzee4 would be fine

I changed it for you. :tiphat:
