I doubt that can be done. I know it can't on my forum software because it's key data (that which upon everything else about you is built).

The only way I'm aware of is simply create a new user name and either delete or stop using the old one.

SuperMod 9 should be able to tell you definitively how it works here.

You CAN"T delete your account.

Want me to send you the emails from the Mods explaining that they can Ban me but, they can't Delete me.

There is a member here with the username REELNAUTI4U (or something like that).

His signature says "I know my username is gay. The mods won't let me change it".

Always get a chuckle when I see that. I'd say you're SOL.

What do I know? So I've been told is it is as easy as adding 2 + 2, but they make it out to be a huge ordeal. The problem lies in, do it for one and everyone wants it.

You did get a reply from me by PM and I explained that it is not allowed here. Allowing someone to change their name automatically changes their posting reputation. You can post something hostile or tick off other members and then hide behind a new name.

How about...
" My Real Name Instead of My Fake Name ...Formally Known as Dead Horse"

I do like the sound of it..

I mod a forum on travel and I can ban and delete any account I want. I can hide things and edit as I wish however I don't, I like to let members see what an ass the person is like.

The softwear the system uses may nnot allow certain things to be done by the mods here, where I mod if a member wants to change his/her name and has a bad rep I can add warning points to their name that stay forever or come off after a programmed amount of time. Of course I can ad or take away more points as needed.

I can also add something like "Member name change from "X" to "Y". If at any point they tryand defeat any of these steps I just ban them, only happened once in 4 yrs.

Glad for the most part I don't need to use these tools!
