I went to edit my profile but I couldn't change my name. I went to re-register and my IP was logged under the current... Please advise what is the best to do! I would be happy with ElizabethH EHeinzman, Ebeth or anything Just feel so goofy with my whole name up there.
When you register to the board, it does not ask you for your first name and your family name, the field just asks for an "username"
Users can not change their username themselves because it would be hard to recognize them if they often change their identity. You need to know the exact username you want because if I change the current one to one of the three usernames you suggested, how would you know which one is the new username? You would not even be able to log to write me back!
