    Changing Names

    Is there a way for me to change my screen name on cprog.com to something else, but still retain my current post count and all that. Can the mods do that or something?

    Thou who changes name, and worries about post counts should not change thou's name because thou has not changed.

    Profound. Well said.

    Well I wanted to have everything matching - I don't know - I'm just like that. When I was 5, I never made things out of lego - I sorted the pieces into different sets, and came up with way to organize them faster - which I guess is what lead me to programming at a young age! Anyway - so I wanted all my names to match. Everything I'm a member of, I'm registered as sean_mackrory, except for this site. My passwords are all the same - so why not names? And Sentaku - you're using formal second person pronouns incorrectly. I was also thinking of changing it to English_King.

    Hey, I did the exact same with my IDs. I'm not sure that it's such a good idea though, having identical IDs and especially passwords. It would kinda suck if someone got my password, and since the IDs are the same, it would not be hard to go through all the things I use and mess everything up... it is quite helpful not having to remember which ID/password to use though, the reason why I did that initially.
    This is my signature. Remind me to change it.

    What your asking can be done on these boards, but only by an admin as it need access to the admin control panel....

    Email the webmaster......maybe he/she will help

    The Webmaster is unavailable that has been mentioned a few times. Your best bet would be to contact the honorable kirmi3.

    And for quite some time now. How disturbing.

    >>Your best bet would be to contact the honorable kirmi3.

    Only you might want to spell it Kermi3. Not sure if he has those powers or not. My guess would be that he does.
