Bob,
Can I change my Username..? Or can you do it for me..?

I seem to be able to change everything else, but not that. I don't want to just open another account as then I look like a completely different person on all the postings I've already submitted.

No, it can't be done, as far as I can see.
However, there would be no problem you modifiying your signature so that it had a brief line saying that you've changed your Username.

Ok Bob this looks like my only choice then.
When I first set-up my account I didn't realise how the whole thing worked, so just used the standard Username that I use for building networks / servers / workstations, etc..

Now however seeing the whole thing in action, Jarroda is starting to look a bit daft.

I'll consider carefully and perhaps you'll see another member appearing soon.

Thanks

Andrew Jarrod

Bob,
I can't add another user as the system, it complains that that someone (me) has already registered that Email address.

Can you remove my present user...?

Nowt wrong with Jarroda, looks rather exotic.

Andrew,
Please stick with this name for now - I don't want to remove you and find that you are barred!

I also quite like Jarroda as a user name. It does, indeed, sound exotic.

Cheers

Ok Bob I will stick with this name.
Although I'm not exactly sure about the exotic bit.

Cheers.
