    I think you can do that by simply going to your control panel (user CP).

    If you mean changing from "BIGBLAZE433" to something else, only Steve can do that if its possible at all.

    yeah, this comes up every now and then... pretty sure thats how it works.. not sure what steve has to do, but i think thats how it works... maybe he'll chime in..

    i thought about it at one point, but all i wanted to do was capitilize the R in ryoken... not worth the hassle...

    It was experimented on before . With my original account , and my new I forgot the old password account so I opened this new account .

    I never wanted it changed , just put back to my original name without the k10 on the end . My name predates the internet boards, I was born with paul , and Mom called me pauly , and 383 was what I added to my numbers when I paged someone ( remember before everyone had a cell phone LOL ) .

    It was able to be merged .

    Access to picture gallery was lost and all pics had to be reuploaded to the new merged account for access to add or delete pics . I think the old pics are still in here somewhere .

    Got the new postcount to the old name .

    Lost all old I-trader feedback ( sucks it was double digits ) .

    Did find all my subscriptions made it over .

    Steve is always busy with life , and he has plenty in his life , so don't be upset if you ask and it takes awhile for his reply . He has not only ck5 to handle , but towrig , family , and a job too . I also believe he doesn't want to do this all the time , for everyone . So sorry if you get flodded with PM's Steve .

    I changed mine a few years ago. Lost it all even the join date. The join date you see when I changed ID's. It might be possible to transfer all the onformation over now though.
