I hate my username...it's the one I use for video games and have done since I was a kid. Want to change it to something a bit more mature. Any way of doing so?

Can post in Ask A Mod, however I believe they only change it for special reasons, eg has your real name in it... Worth a try though

You'll not get a username change just because you don't like it, I'm afraid.

Regardless, to answer your question, you can find the Ask A Moderator forum as a sub-forum of this one: TSR news, help and feedback > Moderation queries > Ask a Moderator

Also, username change requests were newver intended to be handled via Ask A Moderator; instead, Ask A Section Leader was the forum to use. Now, though, they apparently should be made via email to [email protected] rather than posting in AASL.

I think that's pretty dumb. A lot about this site doesn't make sense. Why can't I change my username? Why can't people delete their accounts? I like this forum, but there is a lot lacking that doesn't make sense..

you need to ask a mod and they'l change it for you.

You could make a new account though. You've only got 2 rep points anyway lol.

The rationale for the prohibition of username changes, I believe, is that they're generally not a healthy thing for the community as a whole; for example, they can cause significant confusion to other members.
