    I was notified by another member that my account name is very similar to his and he's been on the forum for quite some time.

    Does anyone know who I would contact to change my account name or do I have to close this account and start all over again?

    Thanks for any help you can render.

    Maybe not. It looks like it is too long. Not a big deal but could cause some confusion when summoning using the @ symbol in responses.

    It's not too long. Fits the space over the avatar, and as to using the @ all you need to type is the first few letters and the name block pops up for you to click on so you don't have to type it all.

    @TxBrew If there was a way for people to change their account username - I would definitely utilize it. Cannot stand having a bunch of numbers attached to my name.
    So if that ever is suggested as an potential option when doing site updates— Id fully support

    So you plan on changing your name, are you planning on being another CK55? Or whatever his name was.

    You mean the greatest winemaker of this generation? Lol. I could never disrespect greatness such as that lol
    Na I just did not realize we are married to these usernames once created. A bunch of numbers just annoying to have. And anonymity is out the window. Name & birthdate? Might as well have used my social security #! Lol
