    Is there any way I can change my username or is this not possible anymore on TSR?

    the faq says it's not possible unless there are 'exceptional circumstances'. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/faq....y_someone_else

    Only if your username can be used to identify you IRL.
    Although I have heard of someone getting it changed because people kept taking the piss out of them for it.

    I've had a couple of people I know send me texts that they know I post on this site... I'd rather my close friends didn't find out and I feel that a change of username will help me.

    I've tried making a new account but I get banned for some reason.

    Nah, pretty sure they'll change it as long as OP asks nicely.

    I sent them an e-mail, and was able to get my username changed in a few days.

    You can mention that in the e-mail then, just in case. Good luck!

    Fair enough, I was just going by what I've seen personally and what I've been told
