I use USAbro, on several forums. On the Water Rocket Forum, my username is "Water Rocket Expert" which is probably not quite true. But on several forums (4 including this one) my username is USAbro. Also and old chatroom too.

I'd probably change mine, if I could.

I heard you can change your username if you get permission from the mod or some forum admin.

Is getting it changed a hard process? Does their have to be good reason? Does your rep stay the same? Do other people know?

Yep your rep stays the same, IIRC you also need to create a thread letting others know you will be having a new username as well.

There are two reasons to change your username.

1. Because you want to start over with a good reputation

2. Because your user name sucks!

Changing your username dosen't reset your reputation, your still the same person, on the same account just with a different name.

Yeah, but if you didn't have to make that special thread, then nobody would know.

Believe me I know what I'm talking about. I used to troll forums all the time until I realized that it was wrong-having fun at someone else expense. I had so many different account on one forum, then got banned. That was when I was 11, now I'm 15.

While you can get your name changed, go easy on it, since the admin has to create an account with your desired name, copy over all your data to that account, and delete the old one. It takes time.

So you know, if it's not absolutely necessary...

I better keep mine. Brings out good memories (not very old, but oh well:)). It still sounds weird if you stay and think.
