    I don't think that's possible.

    Only admins, super moderators and super unmoderators have that option in user CP

    I know abk!
    It is your change of user name that hinted me this, I wanted to use my official (:P) name mandeep, instead of manav (my own pet name)!

    May be I can request CornedBee, he is a good friend of mine!!

    Think about it:
    You had user name - A
    Your post count is - 200
    You send me PM from user name - A


    You change your user name - B
    Your post count is - 200 (Same!!!)
    Your sent PMs to me, now have a different user name, indicating they came from B!!

    Some one has already done that!
    abk - abh!shek


    I wish to do the same!
    anyone?

    Can't you just PM a mod and ask nicely?
    It's what I would've done when I wanted my capital 'a' but someone did it before I asked.
    Then the board died and I lost it. I miss my capital 'a'.
    Good class architecture is not like a Swiss Army Knife; it should be more like a well balanced throwing knife.

    I really don't understand what you mean by that.

    Webmaster can be contacted at webmaster_at_cprogramming_dot_com. Now he will get mad if too many people request username change. Anyway, its his problem, not mine

    Don't sick the ankle bitters on the mods, that's not a very nice thign to do to either the mods or the ankle bitters.
    Until you can build a working general purpose reprogrammable computer out of basic components from radio shack, you are not fit to call yourself a programmer in my presence. This is cwhizard, signing off.

    I was a little curious to begin with, later I thought why not I use my real name if possible!

    How many PMs do you have that you really must save at all costs?

    You could have created a new username by now.

    Thanks medievalelks! I have only 559 posts + more than 160 sent/received PM!

    Thanks for your concerns!

    I have this habit of putting '!' after every sentence! I feel very boring with '.' so no one minds!

    Don't create a new account, just PM webmaster and kermi3. If they're too busy, or deny your request (certainly a possibility) then keep the name you've got. If it really bothers you, then consider creating a new account.
